Louisville, Ky., March 5, 1915. Dr. J. H. Baldwin, Sec'y.

Louisville, Ky. Dear Dr. Baldwin: We are just in receipt of a letter from the Collector of Internal Revenue advising us that, as suggested in our letter, the Commissioner of Internal Revenue has ruled that the terms, “legitimate practise of his profession,” as used in the Harrison Anti-Narcotic Law, require that a physician, dentist or veterinary surgeon, in order to register under the provisions of this law, must have complied with all of the laws of the state in which such physician, dentist or veterinary surgeon resides.

Yours very truly,
Signed: ARTHUR H. MANN,

Counsel. State boards should be able to render aid to the Collector of Internal Revenue by opening to him the records of dentists who are law abiding.

quacks-advertisers, this time, of a “sure cure for pyorrhea"were put out of business in Chicago yesterday. They are Cassius M. Carr of 527 East Thirty-fourth street and John J. Kitteringham Jr., of 531 East Thirtyfourth street. Carr and Kitteringham have been conducting the “College of New Dentistry” in room 900 at 30 North Dearborn street. Their principal stock in trade has been an offer to teach dentists their “positive cure" for pyorrhea, the most baffling complaint known to dentistry, on payment of $350.

A set of 150 dental instruments was included in the bargain, and the school until recently did a thriving business.
