have commenced the erection of a fine brick
building on their grounds in that village, to be
occupied as a Foundry for the Company. The
Advertiser understands that is the intention
of the Company to expend some fifty thousand
dollars there within the ensuing six months in
the erection of buildings and other works for
the accommodation of the road. This Road
is now doing a prosperous business, and nieet

thanks the community for thege-
I)eroU a treatment he has received for the
past eight years, and promises to exert himself in future
as he lias never done before to deserve their confidence.
Hereafter no work will leave his hands that will not
compare favorably with the best style of city dentistry.
In connection with thanks, lie begs to say, that the im
mediate payment of plate work will be a necessity. A
good fit is a most dimwit object to le attained without
having paid for the plate. It is true that a poor fit can
be had whether paid for or not, but the responsibility is
not in the least impaired with him, if the work is paid for
perhaps the opposite. It is mightily offensive to be sus
pected of a deliberate attempt to gouge. He will under
take to do nothing beyond his skill to accomplish. Per
sons who do not wish to employ him until they find the
plate is •' going to do," are imformed that he does net de
sire to be .o employed. He can point to as lafge a num
ber of good fits as any dentist can of equal business ; and
—if he does say it—to a great many more artistically ar
ranged cases. If what he has done, cannot be taken as
a sufficient guarantee, the choice of another dentist will
never be a subject of complaint by him.
