Mr Oliver, Penarth, has had recently quite a -unique experience. Whilst in Igypt he shook hands with Pharoh and examined his teeth. Mr Oliver made ,no professional charge. 000 'HEETH. I have already advocated in these columns the imperat ive necessity of parents exercising special care over their children's teeth. In nothing scarcely is such .stupendous ignorance or indifference displayed as in the proper management of the teeth To amputate a limb fjecause it pains one ia just as sensible as to extract a painful tooth. Granted, we live less naturally than formally, but that is no reason whywliI can't preserve our teeth. The loss of them entails iiot only un- necessary pain but also corresponding- indigestion, aonassimilation and other ailments through imperfect masticntioD. Prematurely we thus break down. The Gj-:emment whilst so solicitous for our secular education has wofully neglected our physical. A sound mind in a sound body is an axiotu and the preservation of the teeth is a mighty factor in attaining this happy end. If instead of the dis- graceful religious war at Westminster some Welsh- men or Welshman promoted and carried a bill ■whereby every child attending the Board and other achools should have his and her teetb periodically -attende. to by properly qualified dentists, there wouid oore real good done to the State than by any bil ricsed this century. When I wnte M.P. rafter my name that's the bill I shall further. If the Ex-Premier had done this instead of nearly causing an intersticine war by fooling with Home Rule he not have lived in vain. WORTH A JEW'S EYE. Our forefathers thought more of their teeth than we do of ours. We all know of the custom of torturing' Jews to extoit money from them- The expedient of King may not be so well known he demanded 10,000 marks of a rich Jew of Bristol ;the Hebrew resisted the atrocious extortion, but the tyrant ordered him to be brought before him, and that one of his teeth should be tugged out every day, till the money was forthcoming. This went on for seven days when the sufferer gave in, and John li-stingly observed, A Jew's eye may be a quick ransom, but Jew's teeth give the richer harvest," OOO WHAT ? Mr Evan Ellis Roberts has assumed quite unsxpei-tedly, another, but more pleasing role• It is therefore with unfeigned felicity that I introduce my readers to that gelltlunan who gave a tacit assent to the town's acquiring £ 20C0 loan for the opening up and development of Lower Penarth. The millenium is ronnd the corner. 0 0 0 •'LICKING INTO SHAPE." There is a wealth of satire and humour in our civic flag, wuh its bear's head, which for the first time un- loosened itself to the heavens last week. Satirical in that it recalled the many perfect bear-gardens which the late Local Board revelled ill, and humourous in that, according tu tradition the cubs of bears are cast shapeless and remain so till the dim has licked them into proper form, so is there a chance of our ultimately licking into shape and existence a truly worthy body. That that time is coming is evidenced by the Council's expediting the circuit round Penarth but there are a few who look upon the meetings as symposiums- ooo NOT A DEBATING SOCIETY. Fox, the famous orator and debater, once boasted | that he acquired his skill in debate by speaking in the House of Commons during three sessions upon every subject which cropped up, whether he knew anything about it or not. By this waste of public time he perfected himself in verbal fence and jugglery. The Fourth Estate was not, however in existence at that time, or Mr Chas. Jas. Fox might Lave had his wings clipped. The mantle of this great statesman has unfortunately fallen upon a North Ward Councillor but whereas Mr Fox was an orator Mr ————— is not, and hence the auditory chafe, grunt and swear especially the Press- The Council Chamber is not, I repeat, a debating class. Now Mr ————— religiously believes he is not faithfully discharging his onerous duties to the ratepayers, whom he has honour to represent— a statement con- stantly obtruded by himself—unless he discuss, dis- pute, seek information, advise, suggest, or say something, relevant or irrelevant, to the matter under consideration, Others are tarred with the same brush, but one sinner at a time. It must be ad 3Jitted that there are many questions in a town's govern- ment wherein the Surveyor's experience precludes any challenging or bandying of words. Samples of stone for macadam and gravel are submitted to the critical tfcst of those whose knowledge of road-making is of the most primitive kind. The Surveyor finally recom- mends, and is supported by such an authority as Mr Snell and others, wbell la long-winded essay ensues from Mr Blank who knows, comparatively, about as much of stones and gravel as gravel and stones know of him. This is only one instance of how precious time is flittered away. To sum up this Councillor in Shakespear's words, one can truly say Methinks the (gentleman) doth protest too much" ====================== J
