TOO MUCH PLEASURE
Dr. Harry A. (Jartield tells us Am-
erican cities have altogether too much
pleasure and far too little happiness.
He urges that this condition easily
can be rectified and should he for the
bes( Interests of all concerned.
It thus appears that many of us un-

two words, “pleasure” and "happi-
ness” of the same species and family
Pleasure, for instauce. cannot make
us happy. It may serve a temporary
purpose, but nothing more can be e.x
pected of it than to pas« the time
away pleasantly Ir.r the day.

Prompt and courteous at-
tention to all cases entrust-
ed to our care.
Good taste and good health demand
sound teeth and sweet breath.
The use of Wrigley,8 chewing gum
takes care of this important item of
personal hygiene in a delightful,
Wrigley’s remove* odor* of dining or
smoking from the breath by cleaning the
teeth, by stimulating the flow of digestive
juices, and by the antiseptic action of the
flavoring extracts for which Wrigley’i Is
famous—“The Flavor Lasts !*
The result is a sweet breath that evidence*
care for one’s self and consideration for
others — the final touch of refinement.
Wrigley’s is a thrice duly routine of
people of refinement.
Following their traditional policy of con-
stant improvement with no yearly
models, Dodge Brothers, during the past
eight months, have vastly bettered their
motor cars in many vital respects.
Indeed, there has never been an equal
period in Dodge Brothers history when
so many refinements of a popular and
fundamental natuie have been made.
The public is registering its appreciation
cf this progressive industrial service by
purchasing every motor car Dodge
Brothers can build—in spite of the fact
that Dodge Brothers production, during
these months, has broken all previous
records by an impressive margin.
