Dentistry 1,000 Years ago. During "a lengthy relic-hunting visit to Ecuador, Professor Mar shall Howard Savillc, head of the1 archaeology department of Colum- j bia University, made several note-J worthy discoveries which will' do much to enlighten ibo present gen eration about I lie curly residents of that country.

In -Mexico human teeth have been dug up that were filled and orna mented with stone, but this is the first instance of gold filling having been found in a prehistoric skull. The gold was inside the teeth, .showing little on the outside, so the purpose was apparently for util ity rather than for ornament...
