To the Editor:  —In Queries and Minor Notes (The Journal, Dec. 13, 1924) appears an answer to the question regarding drainage of apical abscesses of the teeth. I wish to congratulate you on the last paragraph of your answer. Nobody is too good a man for his town. What is needed mostly in this country is good doctors and dentists in the smaller towns and cities. As soon as a man begins to keep abreast of the times in a small place some one is always advising him that he is too big a man for his town. This often has the tendency to make him move to the larger centers where he is not needed, and the smaller place loses a useful citizen. Let doctors and dentists remember the old Methodist hymn that is sung here at times, "Brighten the Corner Where You Are."
