. Dental authorities now- agree that the
thing which ruins pretty teeth is film.
It is that viscous' film, ever-present,
ever-forming. You can feel it with your
tongue. It clings to teeth, enters crev
ices and stays.
The tooth brush does not end it. The
ordinary dentifrice does not dissolve it.
So month after irionth it clings, and may
do a ceaseless damage. 1
That is why brushed teeth discolor and
decay. Tooth troubles are constantly in
creasing. People think they clean the
teeth, but they leave this film. And teeth
are ruined by it.
How Film Destroys
Film is what discolors not the teeth.
It is the basis of tartar. It holds food
substance 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 pyor
rhea. Thus most tooth troubles are now
traced to film.
These facts have long been known to
dentists. Dental science long has sought
a help. But the periodic dental cleaning
seemed the only way to fight film and
tartar. t -
Now science has found an efficient film
combatant one ,for daily use. Able
authorities have proved it by convincing
tests. Leading dentists everywhere are
urging its adoption.

Now Pepsin is Applied
Pepsodent is based on pepsin, the di
gestant of albumin. The film is albumi
nous matter. The object of Pepsodent is
to dissolve it, then to day by day com
The way seems simple, but it long
seemed barred. Pepsin must be" acti

harmful to the teeth.
But science has discovered a harmless
activating method. Now pepsin, in this
new form, can bcv constantly applied.

Normal Prices vs Abnormal Prices
Business concerns operating under normal conditions can
safely rely upon the workings of the law of supply and
demand as a basis for the establishment of selling prices
yielding a fair profit. Prices so established are normal.
It sometimes happens, however, that the selling prices aro
determined by competitive conditions quite independent
of the law of .supply and demand, and without considera
tion of the profit and loss account.
Competitive prices so established while unfair to the seller as view
ed from the angle of profit and loss solely are sometimes made
necessary for the protection of a business and to give ass urancc , of
the continuance of a valuable service to the consuming public,
SUCH PRICES SO ESTABLISHED ARE ABNORMAL.
Effective February 1st, Borden Quality and Service can be purchajed at abnormally low pricej
