The above "instruments" hooks and key was used in the early 1800's for removing teeth. I took the photo last month during a tour of Mark Twain Boyhood Home & Museum in Hannibal, Missouri. The items were on display at Grant's Drug Store/Pilaster House. I thought it is appropriate to post this photo today, April 15th as I am sure many Americans feel the pains of our tax dollars being spent foolishly by the ever expanding hand-outs and re-distribution programs!
