The Thief "HIOW to stay Time in its relentless course?" That istheproblem of Beauty. How to keep the lips young, the throat round and firm, the skin smooth and free from the lines that mark the progress of the years. Does Beauty know that Pyorrhea is an enemy-as well as Time? Does Beauty know that Pyorrhea wrecks the health and brings the brand of age? Pyorrhea is a dis ease of the gums that begins with tender ness and bleeding. Then the gums recede, the lips lose their youthful contour, the teeth decay, loosen and fall out, or must be extracted to rid the system of the infecting Pyorrhea germs that cause so many ills. Four out of five people over forty have Pyorrhea. You can keep this insidious dis ease away. Visit your dentist frequently for tooth and gum inspection-and use Forhan's For the Gums. r_A of Beauty Forhan's For the Gums will prevent Pyorrhea-or check its progress-if used in time and used consistently. Ordinary den tifrices 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 immedi ately for special treatment. 35c and 6 0c tubes in the United States and Canada.
