GRATEFUL to the citizens of Marietta and vi
cinity for a liberal patronage during the past
ten years, is still prepared to perform all operations
either for preserving the natural, or inserting artifi

He solicits calls from those who have very bad teeth,
as he is using a preparation for filling the most deli
cate teeth, no matter how badly decayed, if not oth
erwise diseased —and rendering them serviceable for
years. It is about the same color as the teeth and
will never change or discolor the teeth.

causes ; nor unless upon reasonable assurance
that a b tter will be established.

of legitimate cognizance ; and peaceably to as
semble for the consideration of any matter of
