York 'dams Webster Saline Jefferson More Than 30,000 Readers Dental profession has 'deep roots' in Nebraska h y When the state dental societies of Iowa and Nebraska met in joint session in Omaha in early May 1894, dentistry had had a long his- tory in Nebraska• Native Ameri- can medicine men treated tooth- aches among their people. Accord- mg to a paper on the history of Nebraska dentistry, read at the 1894 conference by W. F. Roseman of Fremont, there were no white den- fists in the interior of the state be- fore the year 1869. Roseman said: "The Nebraska [dental] society was organized at Lincoln in 1877 with six members. The association in- creased to 17 members inside of two years, but in 1886 the interest became greater and the member- ship began to grow, until in 1893 it had become a flourishing body of men, who sought to advance their interests on scientific principles•" The Omaha Daily Bee reported the conference proceedings, includ- ing the papers presented, discus- sions of contemporary dental prac- tices, and demonstrations on vol- unteers of various methods of treat- ment. On May 2 the Bee summa- rized the address of Dr.T.L. James, president of the Iowa association, who recalled part of the painful history of his field "in the olden times. He had a machine which looked like a cross between a jack screw and a hand vice [sic], and said: 'I had my first experience in tooth pulling with this. It may not look well, but it is dead sure in its work. Just a twist of the wrist, a yank on the crank and the jerker got 25 cents from the jerkee, while a jagged hole in the jaw was left to heal up as it would.'" A lively debate took place at the Nebraska Timeline By the Nebraska State Historical Society The Nebraska Advertiser on March 18, 1869, introduced Dr. John Blake, who had just located at Br0wnville, as =prepared to per- form in the best manner, all op- erations pertaining to the science of Dentistry? conference on the advantages and disadvantages of various methods of pain reduction during dental work. On May 4 the Bee reported that a Dr. Johnson of Chicago"con- demned the dentists who adver- tised the painless exvactio n O f teeth Bait? Use bait? "What do you figure he'll weigh now, Doc?" said Steve. Mavis topped off their cups at the philoso- phy counter of the Mule Barn cof- fee,shop. • 'A pounds, if my guessing is any-," Doc said, shaking his head. "Your dog?" asked Mavis• "No, Hon," Doc said with a smile, "O1' Lunker, that big trout down in Lewis Creek." The best fly tying and fly fish- ing had failed to bring O.L. to the net for a long time now. Oh, some- times he'd investigate a fly closely and start a near panic attack in the angler, but then he'd turn back into his hole and let the fly drift on by. It was maddening. "Maybe he's just smart," Dud said. "Instinct, I think," said Doc. "I just don't think any trout is all that smart. But instinct could account for it. He knows what he wants to eat, and somehow, the flies we send him just don't quite look right, or smell right, or float properly, or sink fast enough• Who knows?" "I've tied my best for him," Marvin Pincus said, looking semi- depressed. "I swear I don't know what that fish wants." "You're the best fly tier in the valley, Marvin," Steve added. "If your flies can't do it, I'm wonder- mg if anything can." "Have you tried using bait?" Mavis asked. "My brother does okay with worms and salmon eggs." Every member of the world di- lemma think tank gave hostile stares at their friendly waitress until she remembered something in the kitchen and left in a hurry. "Bait? Use bait?" Doc moaned. Marvin nodded. "Might just as well shoot the dang fish." Life, after all, would mean noth- ing without standards and values. Brought to you by Saddle Up: A Cowboy Guide to Writing.

He said that the so-called nostrums for enabling dentists to pull teeth without pain were frauds, and had caused the reputable dentists more trouble than any other one thing in their profes- sion. He was greatly in favor of discarding the use of anesthetics, and thus avoiding their evil after effects on the patient." Despite the best efforts of the dental profession during the 1890s, painless tooth extraction was still a dream for most Nebraskans. Rob- ert Good, editor and publisher of the Valentine Democrat, on Au- gust 13,1896, complained: "Dear readers, did you ever have a den- tist, one of those deft manipulators of crowbars and bradawls and mon- key wrenches and other weapons of warfare, get you into a chair and dig out the roots of your molars' • with a grubbing hoe? And did he then hold the pieces of the neces- sary but sometimes obnoxious grinder before your eyes and exult- ing tell you that 'you're going to have a mighty sorejaw?' And did his words prove true and did you go around town holding the said jaw with one hand while you were wondering whether you'd ever sur- vive the shock? "If you did you will sympathize with the editor.., in his hour of trial and excuse any apparent dete- rioration in the quality or quantity of news spread before you for di- gestion this week."
