OF GENERAL INTEREST
--James Truett, of Harris County, had a tooth that gave him a great deal of trouble. He disliked to have it pulled because his mouth would be disfigured. On the suggestion of a dentist he gave another man $15 for one of his teeth. Dr. Chappels of La Grange, pulled the tooth and then pulled Mr. Truett’s tooth, fitted the other tooth in Mr. Truett’s mouth, and in a few days he could use it just as well as if it had grown there.—Coweta (Ga.)
