Tooth
Brushes
It is not really an economy
to buy any but the very best
tooth brush. Who wants to
get a mouthful of bristles
every time they clean their
teeth as a result of trying to
save a few pennies on first
cost? Our tooth brushes
are the
CLING BRISTLE KIND.
Every one made to keep its
Bristles until the brush wears
out—which meaus a long
time. You will appreciate
our tooth brushes more if you
have been using the ordinary
bind. A special leader is a
krush that we sell for 25c.
