She Keeps Her Hold on Youth INTO the noonday of life she has car ried the glory of her youth. The leaping pulse ofperfect health, the beauty of yesteryear, still are hers. Pyorrhea, which afflicts so many over forty, has passed her by. In its blight ing touch, Pyorrhea is akin to age. Its infecting germs deplete vitality. They cause the gums to recede, the lips to lose their contour, the teeth to loosen and decay. Take care that this enemy of health and beauty does not become established in your mouth. Watch for it. Visit your dentist often for tooth and gum inspection. If you have tender or bleeding gums (the first sympton of Pyorrhea) use Forhan's For the Gums. BA Forhan's For the Gums will prevent Pyorrhea-or check its progress-if used in time and used consistently. Ordinary dentifrices cannot do this. Forhan's keeps the gums firm and healthy-the teeth white and clean. How to Use Forhan's Use it twice daily, year in and year out. Wet your brush in cold water, place a half inch of the refreshing, healing paste on it, then brush your teeth up and down. Use a rolling motion to clean the crevices. Brush the grinding and back surfaces of the teeth. Massage your gums with your Forhan-coated brush-gently at first until the gums harden, then more vigorously. If the gums are very tender, massage with the finger instead of the brush. If gum-shrinkage has already set in, use Forhan's according to directions and consult a dentist immediately for special treatment. 35c and 60c tubes in the United States and Canada.
