The Washington Chemical and Dentifrice Manu
facturing Company comes before the public this
week in an announcement which shows the in
tent to place upon the market a toilet preparation
called Alo Tooth Cream, the formula for which
was discovered by Dr. Herbert S. Hall of this city.
This preparation has already obtained considerable
prominence here and is said by all who have used
it to be the best ever used. None has been sold
as yet. Plans are under way to ptece it on the
market immediately and to advertise it extensive
ly. This means considerable to Colville. If the
same exertion is used to push a GOOD tooth wash
made here as has been used by other firms in
other places, Colville will literally ' 'be in every
body's mouth." From a business standpoint it
means a further boost for Colville and a conse
quently greater growth. There is hardly any
limit to the possibilities of a plant which can manu
facture a toilet preparation acceptable to the pub
lic. Increased sales would demand greater facil
ities. A box factory might find opening here
now. With more local demand for boxes, one
could safely be established. Barrels and paper
would come next. And increased demand for la
bor and a larger population for Colville would be
the result. These things all sound good—they may
be called visionary—but they are possible. Other
sections of the country have done more, and they
possessed not half the natural resources of this
section. The men who are behind this venture
are not the kind who are accustomed to making
failures. The project is in its infancy at present
—but look out for it. It may make a city for you.
