No gum, we beHeve, ever before had so much care put into its manufacture. This care is to insure the six features listed below. The 7th point-will not be announced for the present. 1 Crowded with Flavor Crumble-Proof First of all, we gave our attention to flavor. The highest grade of pure extracts was naturally needed. After securing the flavor, a still greater problem remained. How were we going to drive that flavor fairly through and through _eu ihat it stays in the gum? Right there was one great stumbling-block in the produc- tion of a high-grade chewing guin. It is a stumbling-block which-we have removed through an exclusive process which makes the Sterling Flavor permeate each the gum, in with refreshing peppermint, or that is fascinating in its delicious spiciness. 2 Velvety NO GRIT Next we set out to produce a gum that was absolutely free from gritf This was a matter refining and re- refining the long.feaibus process. But worth the phewer will agree- So Sterling Gum has a Velvety -NO GRIT. That is'point 2.'Rather im- portant, too, isn't it? Heat, cold and humidity dp their best to make gtmi crumbly. And they" fame their way very often, as you no doubt know. We decided that Sterling Guin must bo crumble-proof." After long experiment we finally made Sterling Gum by a new process. We well, this isn't to be a lecture on science. The point is this: No matter when or where you buy Sterling Gum, 'you will find it "crumble-proof" You will find that each stick quickly becomes a velvety-bodied confection. A Sterling Purity "Purity" is too. often a vague claim. Sterling Purity is an actual fact. That means extreme parity-of all in- orif-dients extreme cleanliness of plant and employes. just one incident to-esplain our ideas on the subject. All gums use pulverized same pulverized sugar that you put over your berries and cream in? the morning. Clean, isn't it? QfcoMse. But not as clean as we want it. So we buy our sugar 'in granulated form and do our own pulverizing. The difference, is not apparent to the eye, but, nevertheless, it is there, It is attention to details like this which we sum up in Point 4, "Sterling Purity." From a Daylight We make Sterling Gum in the sunlight where everything is spotless. During every working hour, the daylight streams through the broad, high windows of our factory. There .are no dingy corners. Cleanli- ness everywhere. This environment, too, naturally has a wholesome effect on .our employes. Untouched by Hands But Sterling purity and a daylight factory need this Sterling 6th point to provide a genuine hygienic safeguard. A company rule makes- each employe wear spic-ana-span uniforms and gloves of white. These white gloves are fresh-laundered every morning. That insures Sterling Gum Point 6, Un- touched by The 7th point of Sterling excellence we are keeping in reserve. We will not make it public for the present. But that 7th point is there for a very good reason. It is perhaps the most impor- tant of all 7 points of Sterling excellence.
