&nb 3t Came Ulo gaste
And it came to pass that in those days there was a young man in the Southern Dental
College, whose name was L. M. Rattray, the same being of low stature, as was Jeff, the pal
of Mutt; possessed he also a great mind, the like of which had not been seen since the days
And it came to pass that after receiving the degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery, he
went into the far West, beyond the River Mississippi, among the Buffalo Rangers, to speak
against bacteria, anterior shell crowns, the drinking of strong drink, etc.. and to advocate
the use of the Perry separator, the rubber dam. and Adair's pyorrhea cure, the like of
which can only be secured by a course in the Southern Dental College.
It came to pass as he stood on a platform four hundred cubits in length and four
score and ten cubits in breadth, supported by brazen pillows, he spoke to the multitude
assembled about him in so much that they were convinced.
Now it came to pass as he spoke, he beheld one from the house of Messhah, an herds¬
man, a damsel, and the damsel was fail' to look upon.
And when the young man from the Southern Dental College gazed upon the damsel,
he spake much the louder and breathed the air so vehemently that he did lose his equilib¬
rium and fell headlong from the platform.
It came to pass as he thus lay. the damsel being very compassionate, advanced and be¬
stowed a kiss upon his brow, the effect of which was unequaled by nitrite of amyl, behold !
then appeared life in him. he arose and beheld the damsel standing not afar off; and it
came to pass as they thus stood he spoke in this wise. "Kid. lovest thou me?" The damsel.
seeing he was of few. yet sufficient, years, and possessed he no wife. said. "It is spoken."
And it came to pass as they yet stood he said. "Take thine all and follow me," where¬
upon spake the damsel, saying. "Possess I neither silver nor gold, but such as I have I will
give it thee freely."
And when they had put an end to these sayings, departed they thence by way of the
buffalo trail to the coast of the Pacific and there remainest until this day. doing much good
for humanity, treating pathological conditions of the oral cavity, restoring lost occlusion.
and many things pertaining thereto.
