MORNING ENTKRPRim TUESDAY. OCTOBER 17. 1911.
By M. QUAD
Okrrrlckt, mi. by amh
Tbe Tillage of Eiter numbered 1.2U0
Inhabitants and wat avvuuted an In
. terestlng place. That was why iJeotye
Bailey, who bad Just graduated as a
dentist. rnued parlor there, it con Id
be fljrurvd a atrslxht a a string tbat
USM men, women and children bad
teeth enough to keep three dentists on
; It vii only natural tbat Mr. Bailey
, Should otwerve tbe trctb of the people
'be had come among. He tuet per
haps a dosen in tb whose teeth
were In rood .order. There waa no
doubt tbat the irradnate had eome to
the right spot and struck a soft thins
week went by and Mr. Baiie.r
hadn't had a customer. Then second
week passed. Tftea he went about to
Inquire wha,t was tbe matter. lie ran
wp against a ffrocer, who told him.
"WThy, I supposed yon knew alt
. shoot It." said the grocer. "Some six
yean ago a dentist set up here, and In
pulling a tooth for old Mrs. Joyce
be palled her neck oat about two feel
long, and she died next day. Too
much neck, you see. Tbe dentist had
to fiy for his Ufa. Since that date none
of n dare patron 1 a dentist."
At the end of the third week Mr.
Bailey offered to fix tbe teeth of a min
ister for nothing. The minister said
be was much obliged, but he hadn't
yet fulfilled his mission on earth. -
Did Mr. Bailey set his office afire
and then go out and bang himself T
Not at all. He knew Just what to do
la such a rase, and be did It. lie went
up to Chicago and walked out a bit
mnti he found Professor Donaldson.
The professor waa tbe champion pain-
Twaa tooth, puller of America. By da
he was In his office; wben erenlng
came he d td up as a harlequin
' and drove about tncrBreeta and pulled
teeth without charge. Mr. Bailey and
tb professor had a long and chummy
talk together, and an agreement was
reached. Three days after the talk
the dentist was back at Exter. A day
later the professor followed. lie had
wagon and music. lie had flags and
banners and prancing horses, lie had
tb whole town on tb street, and he
- deUTerW a lecture on bad teeth.
Bad teeth were responsible for head
aches, flatulency, dimness of vision,
loss of memory, biliousness, liver com
plaint and a score of other things. Bad
teeth, filled graveyards. Bad teeth pre
vented happy marriages. Bad teeth
caused half tbe crimes committed. Bad
teeth caused 10,000 divorces per year.
It waa because of tbe bad teeth of
the soldiers that Germany conquered
France. It was only a lecture on bad
teeth and the results thin erenlng. To
morrow evening the professor would
how the good people of Exter what
a true philanthropist he was. There
would be something doing, and it
a hoc idol east any citizen a cent -'
Wben ' the next erenlng came the
professor made a few general remarks
ad then offered to pull teeth free of
charge. It would be painless. If any
one felt the slightest twinge of pain
that person was to be presented with a
Are dollar gold piece. Aye, the pro
fessor would do better than tbat. Be
would furnish sets of false teeth at
the Iww price of $2 a act Single teeth
would be only 20 cents each. So more
headaches in Exter snd tbe death rate
reduced SO per cent.
, Three evenings It took tbe professor
to reach tbe last tooth. No hurt, and
nobody out a cent There were a few
people who sympathised with Mr.
Bailey and called to tell him so, but
he bad folded his tent and gone off
Calling, and It was a long fortnight be
fore be returned. Whnt of the people
wo had got something for nothing?
Ttiey had had from one to six teeth
extracted. Many of them were "on
tlielr gums' alone. fU-nros were linp
Ing as they talked. Other score ut
tered a bins as they started out to talk.
For three weeks they went snout pat
ting each other on the back nnl call
ing Professor Donaldson the t:. -ml of
bumanlty. Then It suddenly occurred
to some one to ank when lie was going
to return and make good. He Lad-
been Indefinite nbout the date. They
rushed to tbe office of Dentist Bailey,
but be could tell them nothing beyond
the fsct that be had the best kind of
luck fishing. Letters were written to
the professor, but they remained un
answered. A committee was sent to
Cblcago. ino miles away, bat it failed
to find Its mna.
Then yoi must see what happened.
Dentist Bailey was ready for the rish
tbat came. He hud seen red itn awin
ant In anrkinatlon. Ills stairs grosned
under the weight of callers. Thev
wanted to be fitted from two front
teeth to all their mouths would hold.
There wax work for a year nhad. and
there ws money In the work, it w:is
weeks and weeks lefore one mun In
Exter would take another man's word,
but bad to have everything in writing.
When a man hisses and lisps and
mumbles as he talks bow sre you go
ing to know what h is driving at?
There was svme attempt to connect
Mr. Bniley with Professor Donsldson.
but It fell flat. Ton can't figure out
--things with your empty mouth. It wns
sir months before tbe churches had
their usual congregations again and
somewhat longer than that before
lawn parties and 'lasses candy pulls
were Indulged In again, but there came
time when tbe stranger who rode
through Exter afterward bragged not
of the clean streets and happy fares
be saw, but of tbe white, even teeth
that met his gaze on every hand.

Th 1911 baseball season ha been
the most successful In the history of
the national gam. Tb nuiuU-r of

than In any previous year, and this la
spite of th fact that th average sal
arte paid th player this yesr bare
been much In excess of those paid last
season and previous seasons.
In the National league there has
heea the moat exciting contest for tb
pennant In the history of that organ!
tattoo. New York winning out after a
hard fight Detroit set tbe American
league "on fire" with a great record
of early victories, but the Athletlca
after a great race won tb champion
The Eastern league race was not
definitely decided until just before th
finish. Rochester leading practically
all th season, but In th final few
weeks the Toronto and Baltimore
teams were very dangerous to th
Minneapolis, strengthened by new
players, made a good finiah In th
American association and won easily.
On th Pacific coast there Is s great
raca-oa for pennant honors. Oskls ad.
Vernon .and Portland are now fighting
It out for first honors, with Sacra
mento bobbing up every now and
again to upset tbe calculations.
Tbe New York State league race was
the cloeest In years, and. while the
Wilkes ba rre Barons set a couple of
new records by taking their third con
secutive pennant and by leading the
league .-from th first to last daysy
their supremacy waa menaced until
the very final -week, and but for the
fact ' that Albany and Troy proved

not now be boasting of hla sixth pen

So close was th Connecticut State

doubt until the very last week, and
the same can be said of the New Eng
