Old methods of tooth brushing don't save the teeth, as millions of people know. They remove some part of the debris, but often leave the chief tooth destroyer.

That is why brushed teeth discolor and decay. Why tartar forms, and pyorrhea starts. And why safety requires a periodic dental cleaning.

There forms on teeth a slimy, clinging film. You can feel it with your tongue.

It gets into crevices, hardens and stays and resists the tooth brush. The ordinary dentifrice cannot dissolve it. And that is the cause of nearly all tooth troubles.

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

Dentists call it bacterial plaque, because it breeds millions of germs. And they, with tartar, are the chief cause of pyorrhea.

That film is the teeth's great enemy. Brushing teeth does little good if the film is not removed.

Now a way has been found to combat that film. It is used and endorsed by many modern dentists. And to quickly bring it into general use we are offering a One-Week test.

This method-called Pepsodent is a dainty tooth paste. You use it like 'any, dentifrice. But, unlike others, it contains an activated pepsin-the digestant of albumin.

The film is albuminous matter. The object of Pepsodent is to dissolve it, then to daily prevent its accumulation.

The reason why pepsin was not used before is the fact that it must be activated. The usual agent an acid, harmful to the teeth. So pepsin long seemed forbidden.

But science has found a harmless activating method, and Pepsodent employs it. Five governments have already granted patents.

After three years of clinical tests, Pepsodent has been accepted by many high authorities. It has proved itself a marvel of efficiency. And it seems to solve this allimportant film problem.

Now we are stating the facts to millions, and are urging all to prove them by a home test.

Send the coupon for a One-Week tube. Use it like any tooth paste, then watch the results. Note how clean your teeth feel after using. Note the absence of the film. See how they whiten as the fixed film disappears.

Those results mean that Pepsodent does what old methods have not done. They mean real tooth protection. After that week you will want those results continued, we believe. Cut out ihe coupon now.

*Sea Ring Rod Packing marks a new era in packing rods and plungers of engines, pumps and other machines. Other packings are put into the stuffing box and constantly forced against the rod by the pressure of the stuffing box gland. Constant friction between rod and packing consumes and wastes power. Sea Rings are not forced against the rod by gland pressure. Their packing lip is forced against the rod by the pressure of the fluid that tries to escape and so the pressure of Sea Ring Pack. ing automatically varies as the tendency of leakage. This automatic action saves power due to elimination of unnecessary friction between rod and packing. A reduction of friction also means less wear on packing and rod and longer life for both. The Sea Ring typifies the aims of the Johns-Manville Company in their conscientious effort to better conditions in every field to which we render service.

Indeed, the reason given generally for Bonds he may have no house at all. Every motive of patriotism, the request of Secretary McAdoo that for the present the exact human justice, and self-protection should impel every citizen to figures as to the amount subscribed should be withheld is that subscribe for as many bonds as he possibly can.
