George Slavens had occasion to go to New Market on Monday evening. When he was opposite Merle Browns' residence he put his head out of the window to sneeze -- and sneezed his teeth out. He stopped as soon as possible and went back to pick up the grinders but no ivories. He used up a flash light looking for them and a large number of citizens joined in the search but wihtout success. The next morning Mr. Brown found them (line missing) back, and George can now eat again but he is expecting a bill from the town for the grass and hedges that his teeth chewed up during the night.
