Until recently there was no such interesting method of teaching filing. Lectures on filing theory constituted the only method used.

Library Bureau has introduced into many schools miniature practice outfits for the study of filing. Each student is furnished with actual replicas of filing systems used in business. She files and unfiles actual correspondence-alphabetically, geographically, numerically and by subject. She makes classifications and cross-references-exactly as if she were already at work in an office.

Over a hundred important schools are already enthusiastic users of this method. Our free booklet "A new method of teaching filing" gives a concise outline of the method and illustrates its application. We will gladly send you a free copyjust mail the coupon below.

"THE WORLD BOOK is a real encyclopedia in purpose, style and arrangement. The information is accurate and the style serious and dignified."Carl B. Roden, Librarian Chicago Public Library.

"In so far as my experience goes THE WORLD BOOK is the most valuable reference work on the market for the school library, for the teacher, and for the pupils of the elementary and secondary schools."-E. George Payne in Journal of N. E. A., Sept., 1923.

"So many questions like this led me to make a careful examination of the books being offered and to conclude that THE WORLD BOOK is not only far ahead of any of these, but in a class of its own, as the only publication that leads directly into the full-sized encyclopedia, forms the habit of consulting one freely and with pleasant expectation, and gives a child the knack of getting at the facts in grown-up books later on."-Literary Review.

Do You Know What It Means

to Be Free

From Worry?

Human life would be greatly lengthened were it not for worry about the future.

Half the illness in this life is caused by worry over things that could be prevented, and half the recoveries are postponed by the same cause.

Worry means lowered vitality, premature old age, reduced efficiency. Freedom from worry means just the reverse, and as a result, greatly increases professional success.

Of all workers, it is most important that the Teacher be free from worry.

Like Sin and Disease, worry should be banished from the world, and would be, if everyone co-operated for mutual benefit and relief, in some way similar to that by which the T. C. U. has banished worry for Teachers.

Will Give a Living Picture of United States
History to Our Younger Citizens

HIS remarkable work, by America's greatest living historian, drives home by pen and picture to the young American, the newcomer, and the would-be citizen the real significance of our country. No subject should be made more alive than the history of the United States, yet how dismally does the encyclopedic treatment of the formal school book fail! The dry-as-dust texts may suffice for the teacher who sees in the history lesson only the recounting of events, dates, and names, but for the teacher who would have her pupils catch something of the real spirit of America only "We and Our History" will do.

The proportions of "We and Our History" are unusual. One-half the space has been deliberately given to the period since 1865 because the issues of the last 60 years include the vital questions of the present. The book deals with the life and hopes and ambitions of the plain Americans-the life of the people as shown by their conquest of the continent, their inventions, their schools, and their patriotism. Special attention has been paid to the personnel of the American people-now the most important question in the growth of the Republic. Due space has been given to the still unsolved problems of capital and labor, employment and trusts, and the efforts of the American people, through their national and state governments, to protect the weak and control the strong. The author's analysis of the Constitution of the United States is the culmination of a life's study. This chapter alone makes the book an invaluable feature to both teachers and students.

New Format a Great Pedagogical Advance

In We and Our History, hundreds of illustrations arranged in motion picture sequence parallel the text and furnish a complete picturization of the theme. See the reduced facsimile pages opposite.

"Your books are as far ahead," says one educator, "of the other texts as the problem method is in advance of the 'question and answer' system of class-room teaching." "Pictures are time-savers," says another; "they represent to the eye what it would take much longer to tell to the ear. We say 'in one ear and out the other,' but we do not say 'in one eye and out the other.' Of "We and Our Government," another educator has written: "Until seeing what this book represents in the way particularly of illustrative features, I should scarcely have believed such an accomplishment as a possibility."

The results of this new way
of teeth cleaning

There is a better way of teeth cleaning which millions are now employing. Leading dentists the world over now. advise it. Careful people of some 50 nations use it every day.

It is bringing a new dental era. You should know it and the young should know it. Let us show you what it


Film-the great problem

Film on teeth has been a great dental problem-that viscous film you feel. Much of it clings and stays. Soon it becomes discolored, then forms dingy coats. That is why teeth lose luster.

Film also holds food substance which ferments and forms acid. It holds the acid in contact with the teeth to cause decay. Germs breed by millions in it. They cause many serious troubles, local and internal.

Dental science, in its fight on film, has found two effective methods. One disintegrates the film at all stages of formation. One removes it without harmful scouring.

[blocks in formation]


The results were proved by many careful tests. Then a new-type tooth paste was created to apply these methods daily. The name is Pepsodent. All the world over that tooth paste is bringing a new dental era to homes.

No soap-no chalk

These investigations also proved that tooth pastes based on soap and chalk brought undesired effects. They reduced the alkalinity of the saliva. That is there to neutralize mouth acids. They reduced the starch digestant in the saliva. That is there to digest starch deposits on teeth.

Pepsodent omits all soap, all chalk. It is made to multiply the alkalinity of the saliva, and to multiply its starch digestant. Thus every use gives manifold power to these great tooth-protecting agents in the mouth.

Watch it 10 days

Send the coupon for a 10-Day tube. Note how clean the teeth feel after using. Mark the absence of the viscous film. See how teeth become whiter as the film-coats disappear.

A few days will convince you that this method does what nothing else has done. And you will advise all your friends to use it. Cut out coupon now.
