When to Clean tug Teeth. Ot all tho
people who clean their teeth regularly, It is
certain that a very large proportion only do
so once n day, and that generally at tho
time of their morning ablutions. A much
smaller number also do so at letiring, but
the number of thoso who make a practice
of regularly brushing their teetli after oat-
ng, tho most Important time of all, is in.
deed very small. It is while eating that all
little cavities or Insterstlces between tho
teeth become the repositories of fragments
of food, or Iraccs of some acid in thu food
uro left on the teeth, to cause incipient de
cay, and hasten It where it lias already
commenced. It is ot course desirable to
brush the teeth on rising In thn morning
and before retiring at night, but it is ot in
finite more importance that they 6hould bo
thoroughly cleansed after eating.

Sirs: During the inclemency of the win
ter, and temporary suspension of out-door
work In consequence thereof, there Is am
pie lime for observation and relleci'.lnn, and
to witness the doings of tho world nmong
the affairs of men. In nil business transac
tions there enter two csssntlal factors, 1. c,
cash and credit. Many a man has built up
a fortune from the latter alone. And all
who have thus succcded, have become our
foremost und most prominent men, both as
to character mid Integrity. It Is true that
good opportunities are great helps in the
path of success. But many fail to avail
themselves of good opportunities, couse
queutly become financial wrecks. And It
oftentimes happens that In their failures
they involve many others so as to render
them fluanclal cripples for life. Many
well-to-do men have been induced to en
dorse, or to become bondsmen on ball
bonds und notes, lu default of which have
lost their all through negligence, or dishon
esty of tlio parties favored. Thcne is u
motto some udopts "Get money or prop
erty honestly, if possible, dishonestly if
necessary " In other words, "get it, get It
If you can ; If you can't, get It anyhow."
It Bcems absolutely necessary that men
should have credit, without which many
could never succeed ut all, and any man
may succeed without serious defaults If he
will preserve Ids Integrity nnd manhood,
except, however, In case of accident, loss
or reverses, circumstances over which he
has no control. From past experience lu
business transactions lu which so many do.

ly funny ns a newspaper advertisement.
The prime, first, last and nil the time ob
ject of an advertisement Is to draw custom.
It Is not, was not, nnd never will be de
signed for nny other human purpose. So
the merchant waits till tho busy season
comes, uud Ids store Is so full of customers
that ho can't get Ids hat off, aud then ho
rushes to the newspapers nnd puts lu his
advertisement. When the dull season gets
along, und there Is no trade, nnd he wants
to sell goods so bad Hint he can't pay bis
rent, ho takes out his advertisement. That
Is, somo of them do, but occasionally a
level-headed merchant puts lu a bigger
one nnd scoops all tho business, while his
neighbors nro making mottgages to pay
the gas bill. Theio nro times when you
couldn't stop people from buying every,
thing in the store if you planted a cannon
behind the door, and that's the time the ad
vertisement is sent out on its holy mission.
It makes light work for tho ndvertisement,
for n chalk mark on the sidewalk could do
ull that wns needed nnd havo a half holi
day six days In the week, but who wants
to favor un ndvcrtUement? They uro
built to do hard work, and should be sent
out In the dull days when a customer has
to bo knocked down with hard facts nnd
kicked insensible with bankrupt reductions
und dragged in with irresistible slaughter
of prices before ho will spend a cent.
That's tho aim and end of an ndvertise
ment and if you ever open a store don't
try to get them to como when Ihey aru al
ready sticking out of the windows, but
give them your ndvertisement right be
tween the two eyes in the dull season, and
you will wax rich nnd own a lust noise,
and perhaps bo able to smoke a good clgnr

where you'll fall over it every day. The
time to draw business is when you want
business, and not when you havo more
business than you can attend to already.
