be a basic incentive for brini'ini; buy

will have thoroughbred males nt its

livestock industry begin.
Worthy of note in this connection

THE E. R. Parker
System in Dentistry
is nothing but dentistry
Eut on a common-sense
asis. Instead of one
man practicing in a
small way in a small
office, several dentists-
practice together under
the Parker System in
large offices, where there is
room for complete equip
ments. Some of the System
dentists extract teeth, some
fill teeth, some make crowns
. ana bridges, some make arti
ficial plates and some treat
diseased teeth. In this way
each patient is cared for by
a dentist who is experienced
in the kind of work each pa
tient needs. Dental work done
in this manner is not only
done better, but in less time,
making fewer visits necessary,
ana ine saving in time
help to make prices
There are twenty-four
offices where the E. R.
Parker System is used.
located in different
cities. Thousands of pa
tients are treated in
these ollices, and the
large quantities of den
tal supplies used are
bought for less money
than has to be paid for
All dentists using the
E. R. Parker System are reg
istered, licensed and experi
enced. The work they do is
done so well that it can be
guaranteed. You are sure of
Under the Parker System
no charge is made for exam
inations and advice. You can
find out what your teeth need
without having to pay a cent.
Everything known in dentis

in Parker System offices, so
you need have no fear at all.
liie whole idea is this:
Fine dentistry, fewer
visits, moderate cost, sat
