THE .AVERAGE PERSON says , "My teeth are getting, into bad shape, I must go to the dentist." The wise person makes this remark also, but he or she follows it up by actually going to the dentist and having the necessary work completed. The foolish person i is the one who makes the remark but fails. to carry it out, and for one reason.or another keeps putting off their visit till excruciating toothache forces them to go. The commonest excuse of such persons is dread of a dental operation. It is groundless where our practice is cou-'Tjerned. j ,. ; , ^ Dentistry As W;fe Practue It Is a Gentle Art. Drs.

That there is ho hope of any Im-inedlate public works arising 'out of (lie irrigation sichemes being 'phinned for -.southern Alberta was the statement made at the. board of trade luncheon Thursday 'by the jiresldent, and this sets at rest the hope of the city council and other bodies thai irrigation projects would do a great denl to fili the immediate need for places to locate returning soldiers. Mr. Mar-noch ^ald that there was a long, hard row to hoe before the f.chemCs could be undertaken, and it.would be 9nlv bv steady application to the task of clearing away the prellrainariea that tliey could be put through at Tall. Incidentally he read a letter from Hon, Arthur Meighen, minister of .the Interior, dealing with the irrigation pi^ojects, as follows: "It'IS my intention to make provision in the estimates to be submitted to the of commons providing tor certain re-survey ivffrk iu the vicinity of Lethbridge. While it is not cufctoraary at, the present time to Indicate just what provision Sye can allow for these purposes, I am sure the board of trade will feci satisfied that we have acquiesced as far as-.we possibly could in their wishes'. ".. The board is prepared to work with the reconstruction committee and the (iity council lu eveiTr way to push the undertakings, and onC of the matters to which special attention will be paid will .be propaganda to show the farmers In the districts capable of irrigation that they should also lend all their efforts to inducing the gover&ment to go ahead with the reclamation policy now contemplated. la order to reach (he higimt point of perfection each of the new square Royal Yeut Cakes will be wrapped and seated in waxed paper by machinery.
