Numerous moving incidents

Always there is consternation, or something else disturbing in a household when the baby's first tooth protrudes itself upon the scene. And in the instance here illustrated the interruption of the telephone service at the critical time added to the difficulties by creating the impression upon Mr. Lighthead that some terrible calamity had befallen his family. His feelings may be imagined when he arrives at home, disheveled and torn, by reason of numerous moving incidents by flood and field, only to learn that "baby has a tooth." The veil of charity may be drawn over the scene that followed. - The Moving Picture World, February 26, 1910
