PEPS PREVENT INFECTION Throat and lung troubles are caused by infectious germs that infest the air and are breathed in. The natural safe-guard against this infection is to bathe the mouth and throat with the germicidal medicine that comes from a Peps tablet as it dissolves on the tongue. The Pine vapor that is thus liberated fortifies every part of the mouth, throat and chest against the disease germs encountered in the overheated atmosphere of offices, factories, shops, theatres and street cars.
