The Best Assurance of
Good Health is
Perfect, Useful Teeth
For when the body is properly nourished it can more readily withstand the usual attacks of common ailments.
But nutrition is dependent upon complete mastication.
And this complete mastication is impossible when teeth and gums pain with every effort to chew.
Poisonous juices resulting from tooth-rot are responsible for thousands of dyspeptic and sour-stomached men,
women, and children.

Hundreds of Girls
Victors in Rate War
TAUNTON. Mass., Jan. 5. It looks
like a suffragette war upon New Haven
passenger rates. The several hundred
young girls of this city who are era
ployed In the Attleboro Jewelry fac
tories have been hard hit by the new
commutation rates which have Just
been put .Into effect on the New, York,
New-Haven and Hartford railroad.
There .was a small riot at the Central
Station here yesterday when more than
a hundred girls and young men stormed
the ticket office and demanded the three
months books at the old rate. The ex
cuse given was that the supply had
ben exhausted or canceled, "but they
continued their demonstration until
their demands were granted. The po

immense stock market Interests and In
cidentally, it was understood, to train
the younger Ryans for a career in the
financial world. It was hoped the firm
would take Its place among the leading
private banking Institutions under 'the
patronage which could be given to it by
Ryan and allied interests.
.Handicapped By Illness. r
Of the two members of the firm Allan
A. Ryan was, by far the more active in
Dusiness, and already has accomplished
much in the Street. He haa been handi
capped by lllnes? and now Is In" the
General Memorial Hospital recovering

Is said to own 'large copper mines In
that country. He is a trustee of the
American Surety Company of New
York and a director of the Bethlehem
Steel Corporation, the Continental Rub
ber Company, of New York, the Inter
continental Rubber Company, the Na
tional Bank of Commerce in New York
and the Royal Typewriter Company.
Financed Aviation Meets.
Toung Ryan was one of the men in
the company, that was formed to manu
facture machines under the Wright
patents. He has helped finance sev
eral aviation meets.
Although Thomas F. Ryan has been
restricting bis business activity and
has withdrawn from participation In
the management of almost all com
panies In which he formerly was a
leading ngure nesun retains ns uirec
torshlp In the American Tobacco Com
pany. He has been spending much of
his time In Virginia, his home State,
and has taken up the breeding of
horses. He will be joinea in mat noony

WE GIVE ESPECIAL ATTENTION
TO CHILDREN'S TEETH
The misleading imoression that temporary
teeth need very little attention has been the cause
of many child diseases.
Most of the temporary teeth last from 7 to 10
years. It is just as important for a child to prop
erly digest his food during that period as later.
He must masticate his food thoroughly if he would
be strong and healthy. We know children. We
make them like to sec the dentist not fear him.
