For Cash read Cassius

Cassius M. Havens was born in Allegany, New York in March 1845; in 1869 he married Adelaide Illick. They had 4 children: Beluach, Ninabelle, Grace and Hubert. Cassius was a sergeant in the Civil War in the 19th Regiment NY Volunteer Cavalry (later the 1st Reg NY Dragoons). Cassius died in 1907. I can't find a death date for Adelaide.

How does that work?

The Peerless Dentist upstairs advertises "teeth without plates" which was impossible in 1905 since dental implants hadn't been invented yet. Also, does anybody know what "vitalized air" was?

Thank you tterrace for the enlightenment.

What do you suppose

is the blurry, rectangular thing just above the manhole cover, behind the gent waiting for the streetcar? Is it rising, or falling?
