Title Healers and Healing
Description loose. Rather than go to a nedical doctor--or the barber--people preferred going to Anne, perhaps because of her gentleness. One day her brother-in-lawll came to her. In great pain, his jaw swollen and wrapped with a cloth, he moaned, 'Anne, vou ve got to pull mv tooth!" "Oh, Anthon, I can't pull your tooth. I can pull them for kids, but I can't possibly pull your tooth." "You've got to It's killing tne, but I'm not going to any doctor!" Anne finally agreed to try Anthon pointed out the offending tooth; Anne got out her big forceos and started to pull. She pulled. .and pulled. . .. and pulled. Just as she was about to give up, the tooth finally came out. Anthon reached in his pocket and brought out a dollar bill. Over Anne's protests that she couldn't take his money, he said, "Well, it was certainly worth it to me to get that thing out." That dollar was perhaps the most Anne ever received for her dentistry, regardless of how raany teeth she pulled. Today many of the "old" remedies are being studied in greater depth.

Who are we to say they didn't know what they were doing when we speak of the healers and healings- of by-gone years? 1Notes from Scandinavian history class, BYU, 1481-82. 2Candace Slanchard Rowe, b. 24 July 1351, at Camp Creek, Fremont County, Iowa. 3Caratat Conderset Rowe, b. 11 May 1323," at Perry Delaware County, Indiana, son of William Niblo and Candace Blancard Rowe; d. 12 February 1904, at Ht.
