Saves Teeth Of The Dead

"Just prior to placing the body in the casket, Mrs. Kramer asked that her husband's false teeth be removed, as she would soon be obliged to purchase a set. Her request was complied with and Mrs. Kramer arrived in Janesville last week with her husband's full set of plates. She called upon Dr. Burros informing him that she desired to have them remade to fit her, and the request was soon granted. When the little woman of sixty years left the dental office she hoped that the teeth would make her thirty years younger as she intended soon again to enter the matrimonial class." from "Saves Teeth Of The Dead," Eau Claire Leader (May 21, 1907).
