He sought a den-, | tist's office and was met by a young man who was scrupulously neat and clean. The latter bowed suavely and, the judge began: ; ' "1 believe you profess to be able fa extract teeth without pain?' "Yes, sir," was the reply, "and if 1 don't do it I'll refund your money." ' The judge was seated in the operating chair and the last thing he remembers was the dentist inserting a small tube in his mouth, He got a dose of gas and became unconscious. When he came to the young man was under a table, his erstwhile spotless shirt and collar covered with blood and his clothes torn up almost beyond recognition. He was desperately waving the judge off, saying all the while: "Get put of hereE Get out of_here!" , : He seemed very anxious to have tfie judge get out but he couldn't be inr duced to leave his retreat under tie" table. ! "Why, young man, what's the matter?" asked the judge, whp didn't understand the situation, in surprise. "If I've done anything I'm willing to pay, for it." The young man obtruded his head for a moment, glanced reproachfully abput at the demolished furniture and' his own sorry plight, wavered for a moment and then exclaimed: "Pay! You get out pf liere!" It seemed that the judge under th$ influence of the gas had cleaned out the establishment and the dentist didn't get the tooth, either. LABOR NOTES.
