Good Health Demands
The Very Best Teeth
If you would have perfect di
gestion, thereby insuring per
fect health, it is necessary that
your teeth be in perfect shape.
If your natural teeth are in a
condition precluding perfect
mastication, it is best that you
have them attended to at once.
It is better that you have false
teeth than to go with poor ones.
A dentist of known ability and
with a reputation of doing the
best work should be the one to
entrust with the job of attend
ing to your wants in his line.
The one practitioner in The
Dalles who has always given
perfect satisfaction is Dr. Slat
ten, with offices over the Wasco
County Bank. Dr. Slatten has
practiced dentistry in The Dalles
for over 15 years and the thous
ands of satisfied patients patron
ising him is evidence that his
work is of the best. His charges
are as low as first class dentistry
will allow. Work of all kinds,
from extracting to making a full
set of teeth, filling, bridge work
and treating is done by him.
When in need of dental work
visit Dr. Slatten and be sure of
getting the best ,

With tire prices reaching the
sky and a dearth of raw rubber
it behooves tire , users to con
serve their rubber in every way
possible. Instead of throwing
away what seems to be a worn
out tire, take it to F. D. Frazief
of Dufur and have it vulcanized.
By so doing you will receive
many more miles' service from
your tires and the cost will be
but a fraction of what a new tire

A quarter of a century ago there was one automobile for, every 9,500
people In the United States. Ten years ago there was one automobile for eTery
83 people, while today the motor population: it one-sixth as large as the human
population, or one car to every six people. This rapid growth has put the
automobile as foremost among American Industries, but It has also produced
a fearful menace to the public, points out the Safety Council which has for Its
purpose the prevention of automobile accidents. A vigorous campaign of
public educntlon must be pushed If annual rate of automobile fatalities is
to be reduced from 22,000.
Chicken Thieves Take
Criterion Man's Flock
Pete Kirsch of Criterion is
always willing to give any de
serving person a chicken. Pete
is a philanthropist when it comes
to helping the needy, but he is
emphatically against indiscrimin
ate chicken pilfering. One night
the latter part of last week: Pete
sought his peaceful bed on the
porch of his home. He thought
no evil, but was perpared to
sleep the sleep of the just. He
was not distufbed during his
slumbering. On awakening he
noticed a silence on the part of
his roosters and upon investiga
ting found his chicken house .had
been raided and about 50 fine
fowls taken. He has no idea
who the thieves were, but will
now proceed to procure more
egg layers. Of course he will
keep close watch on the biddies

Some Lambing Record
We were told, last week of a
most peculiar circumstance con
nected with the sheep business.'
While we will not vouch for the
accuracy of the statement, we
give it as we learned it, and
it is this: During the lambing
season at the Troutman ranch a
certain ewe gave birth to a
single lamb. She took care of
it and a week later, became
mother to another baby sheep.
At the lapse of another week
the ewe gave birth to a third
lamb, making triplets,: yet .hav
ing the three young ones at in
tervals of a week between them.
This can be accounted one of
the rare freaks of nature and is
unexplainable by the ordinary
individual. ;
The people living on the
Mount Hood loop highway, have
gotten together and are uSing
the slogan "rhododendron Week
on Mount Hood loop, May 16 to

know that the rhododendrons
