been shut down for the past, three or
four years. It Is the propery of the

tained It. through foreclosure proceed

tions. The mill was constructed seven
or eight years ago and is known as
the Lyons-Johnson mill. It Is situated
on deep water and convenient to the
best spruce in the county.
If started at the Instance of the
Government the mill could be supplied
with logs from the Boutin tract, and
the rafts would be floated down the
river. The output would be routed
probably, as other spruce is being sent
from the Bandon sawmilus, up the
river to Cedar Point and there trans

continuing high prices, admitting
of date unfair and un-American,
and needs modernizing. They even admit now that the Advertising
Dentist is human perhaps their equal and that Advertising oi
itself is NOT WRONG.
DR. H. C. SEXTON, SHELBYVILLE, IND, in a recent issue of
the DENTAL SUMMARY, says to his Ethical Brethren:
We know that bad teeth mean sickness, disease and death. We
know that 80 ner cent of school children have Caries teeth. We point
out the forrihle truths we create a demand for Dentistry and
what have we done to supply this demand? I'll tell you what we've
done we HAVE INCREASED OUR FEES we have done scarcely
anything else. We have introduced many new appliances into prac
tice and almost invariably the strongest plea that is made for them is
that we can get more money from our patient.
AND LISTEN TO THIS:
"Is it not useless cruelty to educate (the public) to the need of
Dental Work and then deny it to them on account of expense? WE
RIDICULE THE SO-CALLED 'QUACKS' FOR EXTRACTING
TEETH FOR TWENTY-FIVE CENTS AND FOR MAKING A RUB
BER PLATE FOR $5; BUT I WILL TELL YOU MANY A POOR
MAN, AND MANY A POOR MAN'S FAMILY, HAS HAD CAUSE
TO BLESS THE SO-CALLED QUACK OFFICE. It has enabled him
to have Dental work done it has made his children comfortable and
healthy, YET LEFT HIM HIS SELF-RESPECT, BECAUSE HE HAS
NOT BEEN AN OBJECT OF CHARITY.
.In the long list of Dental operations the one that is doing the
most good for suffering humanity and making the most money for
Dentists today IS THE ONE-DOLLAR AMALGAM FILLING. It is
a blessing to mankind, and a greater blessing to childhood."
Dr. Sexton concludes his long and able article by saying:
"l have heard many papers read suggesting how we could raise
our fees I have not heard one read suggesting means to reach the
suffering poor and help them. We meet chiefly to talk about raising
our fees to tell what we get for operations and complain because we
do not get more. When a profession puts all its endeavors to squeez
ing the most money it can get out of its patients in the least possible
time it becomes unworthy of the name of profession and puts itself
on a par with pawnbrokers." (I personally apologize to the pawn
brokers.) One Dentists mentioned by Dr. Sexton stated he made $25 per
working hour. If he worked ten hours a day that is 5250 a day
$7500 a month, $90,000 a year. Do you think he EARNS IT? Do
you wonder the Profession that puts the dollar sign ahead of the
