They Save Teeth Now in a New Way

All Statements Approved by High Dental Authorities


They End the Film

Countless people are now cleaning their teeth in a new way. And modern dentists all over America are urging other people to join them.

The old ways proved inefficient. As millions know, they failed to prevent tooth troubles. Despite the tooth brush, tartar, decay and pyorrhea constantly became

more common.

Some years ago the reason was discovered. It lies in a film-a slimy film-which constantly forms on teeth.

That film gets into crevices, hardens and stays. It resists the tooth brush, and most tooth troubles are now known to be due to it.


The film is what discolors, not the teeth! It hardens into tartar. It holds food sub stance which ferments and forms acid. It holds the acid in contact with the teeth to cause decay.

Millions of germs breed in it. They, with tartar, are the chief cause of pyorrhea. And many troubles besides tooth troubles are traced to this germ-breeding film.

After years of research, a way has been I found to combat it. Able authorities have proved this fact by adequate clinical tests.

For general use the method is embodied in a dentifrice called Pepsodent. And we supply a One-Week Tube to all who ask, so the millions may quickly know it.

Let It Convince You

The Pepsodent results are quickly apparent. After a few days' use you will never forget them.

The basis is pepsin, the digestant of albumin; for the film is albuminous matter. The object of Pepsodent is to dissolve the film, then to constantly prevent its accumulation.

But pepsin must be activated. The ordinary agent is an acid, harmful to the teeth. For long that fact made pepsin seem impossible.

Now modern science has discovered a harmless, activating method. Five governments already have granted patents. It is that method which makes possible this efficient application.

Four years have been spent by dentists in proving the value of this product. Now we urge all people to prove it by a home test. Send the coupon for a One-Week Tube. Use it like any tooth paste. Note how


clean the teeth feel after using. Mark the absence of the film. See how teeth whiten as the fixed film disappears.

All this means that the film which wrecks teeth can now be effectively combated. And you will never cease to do that when you see what it means to you.

The officers mentioned held their respective ranks by act of Congress. Admiral of the Nary is the highest rank that has been created by Congress. There are no full generals or admirals except such as hold their titles in this way. Washington never bore the full rank of general. He died a lieutenant-general. Grant, Sherman, and Sheridan were created generals as were Tasker H. Bliss and John J. Pershing in 1917.

"W. A. P.," Newark, N. J.-"Will you be good enough to tell me whether or not unbeknownst is being used to-day? My friend contends that the word is obsolete and that it is not being used by present writers, my contention is that it is not obsolete and that it is being used by present writers.'

Unbeknownst is an adjective in general dialectal use in England, Ireland, Scotland, and the United States and is not obsolete. "Present writers" of dialectal stories are likely to use it when needed. For recent usages see Guthrie's "Kitty Fagan," p. 215 (1900); Phillpotts's Sons of Morning," p. 277 (1900).

"W. T. C.." Fallon, Nev.-"Are there two ways of pronouncing the word 'mayonnaise"? If so, please give both and tell me which is preferred.'

Mayonnaise is pronounced me''on-ez'-e's as in prey, o as in not. The French pronounce it ma-i-orner-a as in art, i as in police, o as in go and e as in there.

"W. J. S.," Peru, Ill.-"Which is correct, 'The goods mentioned in your letter will be shipped the fore part or the fore-part of next week"?"

Fore part should be written as two words and preceded by "during" or "in the."

"P. O. H.," Democrat, Tex.-"Kindly tell me whether or not the following may be classed as dramatists-David Belasco, Sir Arthur Pinero, Eugene Walter, Geo. M. Cohan. Are all four living?"

[ocr errors]

The four writers whom you mention are all dramatists in the sense, one who writes plays.", They are all living.

"G. M. N.," New York, N. Y.-"Chopin, the composer, spent the mature years of his life in France, and we hear his name pronounced 'showpan.' How would his name be pronounced by Poles, his compatriots?"

All works of reference give simply. the French pronunciation of Chopin's name, presumably because his father was a Frenchman who taught his native tongue in the Lyceum at Warsaw near which city the composer was born.

W. H. A.," Xenia, O.-"Our little town has been much excited over a discussion as to who originated the phrase, United we stand, divided we fall,' and we are unable to get the information from any local sources. Will you be kind enough to send me the information, and also, if possible. where it may be found?"

The "Liberty Song" of 1768 contained these words from the pen of John Dickson:

Then join in hand, brave Americans all!
By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall.
George Pope Morris (1802-1864) wrote ("The
Flag of Our Union'):

A song for our banner! The watchword recall
Which gave the Republic her station:
"United we stand, divided we fall!"

It made and preserves us a nation! Here Morris quoted the words, perhaps be cause he had parodied Dickson's song, or be cause he was familiar with Sallust's lines, "Concordia parvæ res crescunt, discordia maxima dilabuntur." (Jugurtha 10:6) By union (uniting) the small things (states) thrive; by division (dividing) the greatest perish (fall).

"B. R.," Thomasville, Ala.-"Please tell me whether the ed in preparedness is pronounced as a separate syllable."

In the United States it is, but in Great Britain the word is pronounced as a three- or as a foursyllable word.
