"Well-kept hands

The Pro-phy-lac-tic Hand Brush No. 400 readily disposes of all dirt, grime or stains on the hands and under the nails because its bristles are the finest quality obtainable. Yet the bristles are too good to be harsh - they won't scratch the tenderest skin. And they won't come out, because they are set in aluminum and riveted to a chemically-treated hardwood back. This brush will give you complete service for years to come. Always sold in the Yellow Box - buy yours that way.

Well-kept teeth

The Pro-phy-lac-tic Tooth Brush is the efficient symbol of real tooth-cleanness. It doesn't merely brush the front surfaces of the front teeth. The tufted bristles can reach any place in the mouth where a food particle can lodge. The curved handle fits the curved shape of the jaw, so it gets to every angle and crevice of the back teeth. Carried in child's, youth's, and adult's sizes. Always sold in the Yellow Box. Buy yours that way. Look for name Pro-phy-lac-tic Hand Brush on the handle.

Florence Manufacturing Company, Florence, Mass."
