Barrett Specification Roof on Round House of the Southern Railway System at Finley Yard, Birmingham, Ala.

Meeting the severe conditions of railroad service

THE giant round-house pictured above

with stalls for twenty-five locomotives,

and all the other buildings of the Southern Railway System shown on this page, are covered with Barrett Specification Roofs.

The construction officials of the Southern Railway System used Barrett Specification Roofs because they knew they would stand up well under the severe conditions of railroad service.

Neither the intense heat directly under a round-house roof, nor showers of red-hot sparks, nor the hot sulphurous gases from the locomotive smoke-stacks have any terrors for a Barrett Specification Roof.

Barrett Specification Roofs require no maintenance; take the base rate of insurance and are absolutely guaranteed for 20 years.

The 20-Year Guaranty Bond
This guaranty is in the form of a 20-year
Surety Bond issued by the U. S. Fidelity &
Guaranty Company of Baltimore and is fur-
nished without charge.

We offer this bond on all Barrett Specifica-
tion Roofs of 50 squares and over in all towns
of 25,000 population and more and in smaller
places where our Inspection Service is available.
Our only requirements are that the roofing
contractor shall be approved by us and that
The Barrett Specification dated May 1, 1916,
shall be strictly followed.
A copy of the Barrett 20-Year Specification, with roofing

diagrams, sent free on request.

Lowest Cost Per Year of Service Years of service on all types of flat-roofed buildings, under every condition imaginable, have proved conclusively that a Barrett Specification Roof is the best roof to be had regardless of price; and, what is more to the point, that it costs less per year of service than any other type of permanent roofing.

Do you think your present methods of teeth cleaning are sufficient to save your teeth ?

We think you know they are not. Teeth still discolor, still decay. Tartar still forms on them. And most folks at some time, despite their brushing, suffer pyorrhea.

Statistics show that tooth troubles are constantly increasing, yet the tooth brush never was so widely used as now.

Science has found the reason. It lies in a film-a slimy film which you feel with your tongue. That causes most tooth troubles.

That film is what discolors-not your teeth. It hardens into tartar. It holds food substance which ferments and forms acid. It holds the acid in contact with the teeth to cause decay.

Millions of germs breed in it. They, with tartar, are the chief cause of pyorrhea. So that film is your teeth's great enemy.

You brush teeth and think you have cleaned them. But much of that film remains. It clings to the teeth, gets into crevices, hardens and stays. It is doing a ceaseless damage, while you ignore it, relying on tooth-brush protection.

There is now a way to combat that film -a way proved and approved by many high authorities. It is easily used and as pleasant as any other tooth paste, but it does what nothing else can do.

That way is called Pepsodent. We urge you to try it, then decide for yourself if you want it.

THE NEW BOOKS This Department will include descriptive notes, with or without brief comments, about books received by The Outlook. Many of the important books will have more extended and critical treatment later

FICTION Big Flat. By Henry Oyen. The George H.

Doran Company, New York. A capital story of a determined young farmer's fight with the land and for the land, and against a land corporation which attempts to buy him out, drive him out, or drown him out. How he rallied his slowthinking, unresourceful neighbors iron an association and how they won out nakes an inspiriting tale even if it does involve a little lynch law against inanimate objects. The story is dramatic, moves rapidly, and is far from being socially preachy. It has the essence of American independence in its spirit. Flower o' the Lily. By Baroness Orczy. The

George H. Doran Company, New York.

A mediæval tale of France, the scene of which is Cambrai, now so famous as a war center. It is of the “sword and cloak” order, with chivalry, romance, loyalty, and love, all involved in adventure and war. Glenmornan. By Patrick MacGill. The George

H. Doran Company, New York. A graphic, visualized picture of a remote and poor little Irish district which yet has romance and passion and humor in abundance. I've come to Stay. By Mary Heaton Vorse.

The Century Company, New York. Greenwich Village and its inhabitants are here laughed at, but affectionately ; and there is glamour, if not about the place, yet surely about the young people here described. Especially a perverse, precocious, and passionately enthusiastic little girl remains a distinct memory. The little tale has charm and appeal. Jervaise Comedy (The). By J. D. Beresford.

The Macmillan Company, New York.

A gentle, quietly entertaining story of English country life. The situations and complications attending and following a half-executed but abandoned elopement are novel and the play of character and purpose is spirited. It is not one of Mr. Beresford's biggest books, but it has quality and refinement of tone. Nomads of the North. By James Oliver Cur

ton & Co., New York. No sweeter-natured story has grown out of the war. The ennobling influence of devotion and courage on men and women ordinarily narrow and dull, or aggressive and boastful, is developed quietly, simply, yet most impressively. Hollis, the weak, rather sodden little greengrocer, a total failure in life, becomes a stern soldier, and a latent idealism makes him a blood-brother to the famous painter who fights by his side and dies in his arms. So with the hard, cross, hopeless Mrs. Hollis ; she becomes actually human, and her feeling for her husband changes from cold indifference to something like romance. So too, with Hollis's overbearing rich father-in-law, who rules the town and all in it; he becomes sympathetic, helpful, and now works for his country as forcefully as before for himself. Mr. Snaith has handled his people and


A 10-Day Revelation

What we urge is a 10-day test. It will cost you nothing. Compare the results with your present results, and decide which you prefer.

Pepsodent is based on pepsin, the digestant of albumin. The film is albuminous matter. The object of pepsodent is to dissolve it. Then, day by day, to prevent its accumulation,

The use of pepsin seems simple, but it long seemed impossible. Pepsin must be activated, and the usual agent is an acid harmful to the teeth. Today it is possible because science has found a harmless activating method. Five governments have already granted patents on it.

Dental authorities subjected Pepsodent to every form of clinical test. Years were spent in proving it before it was offered to users. Today its results are known beyond question, and dentists all over America are urging its adoption.

See what it does. Send this coupon for a 10-day Tube. Use it like any tooth paste. Note how clean your teeth feel after using. Mark the absence of the film. See how teeth whiten--how they glisten-as the fixed film disappears.

Do this for your own sake. See the effects, read the reasons for them, then judge if you want them continued. A delightful surprise awaits you. Cut out the coupon now.
