graphs to illustrate his fascinating books carried an old camera with a cheap, old-fashioned lens and a homemade shutter. I once asked him, "How do you make quick exposures with that shutter?" He answered, "I put a lot of extra rubber bands on it." His books are filled with attractive and in many cases admirable pictures that he made with this simple outfit. You can find his books in almost any public library and judge for yourselves as to their merit. You naturally ask his name. Without consulting him, I take the liberty of saying that his name is Clifton Johnson and the books bear the title of "Highways and Byways" in many parts of our country and in foreign lands.

And, to draw a leaf from my own experience, let me say that a few years ago I went up to the State of Maine with an expensive photographic outfit. I had an 8 x 10 camera, and an anastigmatic lens, double-coated plates, color filters, and so on. I carried this heavy outfit around the rocks and up the hills of Maine till I was weary-and got some fairly good results; but one day I shook this outfit and borrowed a brownie from a friend and with it got what the critical ones called a real picture-a snap that caught a fleeting impression of sand and sea and sunset clouds and a human figure, that couldn't have been captured with a big view camera.

Another amateur photographer, whose work can be seen in almost any of the current exhibitions of photographic art, gets his original negatives with a film camera of the 24 x 34 sort. He works them up into larger negatives and prints and gets effects that are properly described as "stunning."

Well, how are these things done? In the first place, you must, as a rule, learn how to develop your own films or plates and make prints from them. Is this troublesome and expensive? When I began to do my own developing, after an apprenticeship of the "you press the button and we do the rest" variety, I asked an experienced friend what I needed. "It's easy," he said. "All you need is a five-cent developing powder, a pound of hypo, a graduate glass, and two small trays. On second thought," he added, "I'll say you don't need the graduate. You can mix the developer in one of the trays. After you develop the film in one tray and fix it in the other, tell the missus you want to borrow her kitchen, and then wash your film in the sink." This man made two mistakes. First, he didn't realize the fascination of photography, which makes you want to buy more and more material. Second, he didn't know my missus. Nevertheless, the initial expense of a developing outfit is really small and the satisfaction is large.

When you have learned to develop and print your snap-shots, you should get an enlarging outfit. You can pay $450 for this, or you can get one for $3.71. You can make exhibition pitcures with either kind. The majority of the pictures shown in the photographic exhibitions are what are called bromide enlarge

Film is that viscous coat you feel. It clings to the teeth, enters crevices and stays. When left it forms the basis of tartar. Teeth look discolored more or less.

But film does more. It causes most tooth troubles. It holds food substances which ferment and form acid. It holds the acid in contact with the teeth to cause decay.

Germs breed by millions in it. They, with tartar, are the chief cause of pyorrhea.

You leave it

Old ways of brushing leave much of that film intact. It dims the teeth and, night and day, threatens serious damage. That's why

so many well-brushed teeth discolor and decay. Tooth troubles have been constantly increasing. So dental science has been seeking ways to fight that film. Two effective methods have been found. They mean so much that leading dentists the world over now advise them.

Pepsodent

The New-Day Dentifrice

Now endorsed by authorities and advised by leading dentists practically all the world over. All druggists supply the large tubes.

A new-type tooth paste has been perfected, correcting some old mistakes. These two film combatants are embodied in it. The name is Pepsodent, and by its use millions now combat that film.

Two other foes

It also fights two other foes of teeth. It multiplies the starch digestant in the saliva. To digest starch deposits on teeth which may otherwise cling and form acids.

It multiplies the alkalinity of the saliva. To neutralize mouth acids which cause tooth decay.

Thus Pepsodent brings to people new conceptions of clean teeth.

Lives altered

Whole lives may be altered by this better tooth protection. Dentists now advise that children use Pepsodent from the time the first tooth appears. It will mean a new dental era.

The way to know this is to send the coupon for a 10-Day Tube. Note how clean the teeth feel after using. Mark the absence of the viscous film. See how teeth whiten as the film-coats disappear.

See and feel the new effects, then read the reasons in the book we send.

If you count such things important, cut out the coupon now.

ments, and they are made with these
enlarging cameras.

Before you get into the exhibitions,
however, you should attend some of
them and see "what's what." Many of
the art museums throughout the country
have within the last few years given
space to photographic exhibitions, and
the beauty of the prints shown will be
surprising to people who have been ac-
customed to seeing only the ordinary
snap-shots. Then perhaps there is a
camera club in your vicinity which
holds exhibitions from time to time.
These are often good to see.

In making enlargements there are
some tricks to learn-I use the word in
no disparaging sense. The most impor-
tant of these, perhaps, is the use of what
is called a soft-focus or diffusing lens.
This is a lens which is so constructed
that it does away with the wiry sharp-
ness that the beginner in photography
admires. It gives "atmosphere" to a
picture when properly used-either in
an enlargement or in making the origi-
nal negative-something of the quality
of impressionism which makes the paint-
ings of the great modern masters so
much admired. But you don't have to
begin with the soft-focus lens in making
your enlargements. Learn to see pic-
tures around you and try to get them in
your original negatives and you will
have good results with any enlarging
lens. When you take a portrait, don't
have the subject stand stiffly erect,
hands at side, staring into your lens.
When you try for a landscape effect,
don't take it at noon, in a strong, hard
light, but get plenty of soft afternoon

a good thing to have a woman criticise
your pictures. The only fault I find
with her as a critic is that too often she
thinks it impolite or unkind to use the
word "rotten."

I'll close with telling you how a
woman helped me in a photographic
emergency. I was photographing scen-
ery on a New England lake for a maga-
zine-you know you can sell your good
pictures to the magazines and news-
papers, don't you?-but that's another
story. Well, when I was getting off the
rowboat I dropped my camera into the
water. I said, "Oh dear!" My dear
fished the camera out and I put it in the
sun to dry. It seemed not badly dam-
eged when I later examined it, but the

shutter refused to work. I fussed over it a while, then gave it up. Some carpenters were at work near by and got interested in my trouble. One of them, an ingenious young chap, worked over the shutter for an hour. Nothing doing. I took it to the wife and said, "Guess I'll have to send it to New York. Goodness knows when we'll get it back-and my work only half done." I went to the hotel desk and wrote a letter to the camera people about it. Came back to

get the camera. The lady said, "Do you know, this shutter works all right now! I fixed it with a hair-pin."

Your magazine is a constant refreshment to my spirit, which seems so often to be growing worn and discouraged in this battle of earning a living and of trying to make the living worth the earning on a Michigan farm in these last years. It reassures me of the happy truth that the world is as full of people fine, brave, and big as it seems to be of the gossipy, the ignorant, and the greedy. And for that, words are inarticulate to tell you how deeply I thank you. Most cordially yours, LILLIAN S. NAVARRE.

in the New York "Herald" how he got the idea of the stories. He was at a newsboys' dinner and saw a young woman serving a hungry youngster. She leaned over him and whispered, "Jimmie, how would you like another piece of pie?" "Great!" he answered. She brought it, and as she placed it by his plate he lifted up one of her hands and kissed it. Afterwards he saw the same young woman walking on the Bowery with a "masher" following her. A boy-perhaps the hero of the dinner-told the gallant to "beat it."

Lord Northcliffe saved "Notes and Queries" from extinction shortly after the war, as a tribute to its influence in his personal fortunes, according to an English writer. It is said to have inspired him with the idea of his own "Answers," which gave him his start in his newspaper career. "Notes and Queries" has been published for more than seventy years. It is a small-sized magazine, and Lord Northcliffe is said to have predicted that the future newspaper will have a page no larger.

The San Francisco man was speaking, "Pickup" says. "I do not believe in all this 'boost' business," he said. "There is too much brag about it. Especially I do not believe in running down other cities, other parts of the country. It is making claims to excellence that do not need to

be made. We should not do it. It is not modest and is likely to arouse jealousy. But I will say this much for San Francisco: Wherever you go from here it is worse."
