DISCLAIMER In The Outlook of February 6 there appeared. an article entitled “Hoarding Hides,” in which reference is made to å recent preliminary report issued by the Federal Trade Commission, which is interpreted as indicating that the packers are illegitimately hoarding hides, and therebr increasing unnecessarily the prices of leather and shoes.

The number of cattle slaughtered has increased greatly during the past five years, but the demand for leather and shoes, dué both to foreign purchases and to unprecedented prosperity at home, had increased during 1915 and 1916 even more rapilly than the supply of hides. Our Nation's exports of men's shoes, for example, increased from 4,450,000 pairs in 1914 to 12,800,000 pairs in 1916.

During 1917 the number of cattle slaughtered was the greatest in our history, and hence the domestic supply of hides was unusually large. On the other hand, the 1917 domestic demand for shoes did not keep pace with this increased supply of hides, and the British embargo and lack of shipping facilities cut down our exports. As a result, the prices of hides, except the heaviest hides, which are used for army shoes, fell appreciably during 1917. Leather prices did not advance during the past year, but slightly decreased.

The packers necessarily have a large supply of hides on hand at any time, owing to the length of time it requires to cure these hides and to sell them. On the declining market of 1917 it was difficult for them to find a market for all their hides,

A Better Memory
In One Evening

Because you get the Secret right away

One well known pupil

C. Louis Allen

President of the Pyrene
Manufacturing Company


David M. Roth is the acknowledged memory expert. Mr. Roth will teach you his Method by mail to your full satisfaction.

He teaches you how to remember what you want to remember.

He has prepared his complete memory method in a Home Study Course of 7 lessons, which has all the fascination of a game.

You can learn how to remember names, addresses, numbers, people, and business figures—easily and quickly.


There is no longer any excuse for the man who has a poor memory.

He makes needless trouble for himself and everybody around him. He does not deserve to succeed, and unless he has marked capacity in other directions, usually does not. "I forgot" is the most inefficient phrase in the English language.

"Now that the Roth Memory Course is finished, I want to tell you how much I have enjoyed the study of this most fascinating subject. Usually these courses involve a great deal of drudgery, but this has been nothing but pure pleasure all the way through. I have derived much benefit from taking the course of instruction and feel that I shall continue to strengthen my memory. That is the best part of it. I shall be glad of an opportunity to recommend your work to my friends."

[ocr errors]


Your memory is the most wonderful instrument in the world if you only know how to use it. It can be readily taught to do things that look marvelous, but are really only the result of your natural mental faculty properly controlled and applied.

No matter what your work is you will find Mr. Roth's Memory Method a priceless aid to achievement and a money making instrument of efficiency.

Mr. Roth is the most successful memory trainer in the country, his Method is the shortest, most direct, most interesting, and most practical, of any that we have seen.

DAVID M. Roth, Memory Expert

The New York Tribune said:

"David M. Roth gave a practical
demonstration of memory at the lunch
meeting of the Rotary Club at the
Hotel McAlpin.
"Mr. Roth asked the men

at any
four tables to call out their names.
This they did—32 of them. Then the
speaker turned his back and they
changed chairs. Mr. Roth then pro-
ceeded to call each one by name and
went through them without error. * * *

The Seattle Post Intelligencer said:

"Of the 150 members of the Seattle Rotary Club at a luncheon yesterday not one left with the slightest doubt that Mr. Roth could do all claimed for him. Rotarians at the meeting had to pinch themselves to see whether they were awake or not.

“Mr. Roth started his exhibition by asking sixty of those present to introduce themselves by name to him. Then he waved them aside and instructed a member at a blackboard to write down names of firms, sentences and mottoes on numbered squares, meanwhile sitting with his back to the writer and only learning the positions by oral report. After this he was asked by different Rotarians to tell what was written down in various specific squares and gave the entire list without a mistake.

"After finishing with this Mr. Roth singled out and called by name the sixty men to whom he had been introduced earlier, who in the meantime had changed seats and had mixed with others present."

with Mr. Roth. Study the first lesson of his
Memory Course. And you will see how a new
world of names, faces, facts, figures and mental
picture-records opens up to you the next day.

Mr. Roth's method makes the act of remem-
bering a pleasure. By his method it is an
easy, natural, and automatic process of the mind.
You can summon the right fact, name, or num-
ber, for use when you need it most. It all lies
in knowing how.

Mr. Roth's method will be a revelation to you. You will realize the power of your own mind as you never realized it before.

Roth says: “There is not a
thing that I do with my memory that
any other person of average intelli-

cannot learn to do— probably
more easily and quickly than I.

"You may not want to give a performance, but would you like to remember telephone numbers-engagementsnames and faces?

"In the first evening you spend on my first lesson you will discover a mental power that you never dreamed you possessed. I know this is true because my pupils-thousands of them-have so testified."

Dental practice in late years has made enormous progress. Many old theories have been abandoned. Many new methods have been adopted, after long clinical tests.

Thisis one which refers to teeth cleaning. And dental authorities feel that everyone should know it.

An evident fact is that old tooth-brushing methods have failed. Statistics show that tooth decay and pyorrhea have constantly increased. Tartar forms and teeth discolor - all despite the daily brushing. And dentists now know why.

The reason lies in a film - that slimy film. You can feel it. It constantly accumulates. It gets into crevices and hardens and stays. Even on smooth surfaces it accumulates.

That film absorbs stains and discolors. It hardens into tartar. It holds food particles which ferment and form acid. It holds the acid in contact with the teeth - the cause of decay.

It harbors germs and breeds them-millions of them. They, with tartar, are the chief cause of pyorrhea. In various cases they enter the tissues and enter the stomach, causing many serious troubles. Nearly all tooth troubles and many others are now traced to that film on teeth.

Much of that film escapes the tooth brush. The ordinary dentifrice cannot dissolve it. Many kinds make it more difficult to remove. That is why tooth cleaning has been so ineffective.

But now a new-day dentifrice-called Pepsodent-acts directly on that film. It solves the problem of clean, safe teeth as nothing else has done. And now, having been accepted by able authorities, we urge you to prove it by

a one-week test.

Pepsodent is based on the fact that the film is albuminous matter. The basis of Pepsodent is pepsin, the digestant of albumin.

The object is to dissolve the film. Then to daily combat the film, preventing its accumulation.

Pepsin long seemed forbidden. It is useless unless activated. And the usual activating agent is an acid, harmful to the teeth.

But science has now solved that problem. It has discovered an activating method which is absolutely harmless. Five governments have already granted patents. That activating method is now used in Pepsodent.

Dental authorities have now submitted this dentifrice to three years of clinical tests. They have applied it in thousands of cases, carefully watching results.

Now that thcy have accepted it, we offer the product to everyone for home tests. And we urge its universal use.

Send the coupon for a One-Week Tube. Use it like any tooth pastemit is delightful. Then watch the results.

Note how clean your teeth feel after using. Mark the absence of the slimy film. Note how the teeth whiten as the fixed film disappears. Note how it polishes the teeth.

That 7-day test will be a revelation. You will know what clean teeth mean. You will know that your teeth's chief enemy -film-can be defeated daily. And we do not believe that you will ever again return to old teeth-cleaning methods.

As a reminder, cut out the coupon now.
