THE teeth are among the most important, if not the most Important, factors in keeping the health of the  body. Everything the body needs for food goes in by way of the mouth; it is ground and chewed by the teeth ' and these, like any other machine that works without rest, day after day, need to be kept in perfect condition. There are sufficient cases in evidence to warrant tho assertion that unclean teeth bring on disease of the gravest character. How about your teeth? It will cost you nothing to let us examine them.

Full Text of Wilson Reply Washington, Oct. 8.-The text of the reply handed to the Charge of Switzerland here follows: "Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge on behalf* of the president your note of Oct. 6, enclosing the communication from the German government to the president; and I am instructed by the president to request you to make the following communication known: "To the imperial German chancellor: "'Before making reply to the request of the Imperial German government and in order that that reply shall be as candid and straightforward as the momentous questions involved require, the president of the United States deems it necessary to assure himself; of the exact meaning of the note of the Imperial chancellor. Does the imperial chancellor mean that the imperial German government accepts the terms laid down by the president in his( address to the congress of the United States on Jan. 8, last, and in subsequent addresses and that its object in entering into discussions would be only to agree upon the practical details of their application? "'The president feels bound to say with regard to their suggestion- of an armistice that he would not feel at liberty to propose a cessation of arms to the governments with which the government of the United States is associated against the central powers so long as the armies of these powers are upon their soil. The good faith of any discussion would manifestly depend upon the consent of the central powers immediately to withdraw their forces everywhere from invaded territories. ."'The president also feels that he is justified in asking whether the imperial chancellor is speaking ARE DUE TO ACIDITY Telia Safe, Certain, Speedy Relief for Acid Indigestion. (By the Associated Press) Renewing major operations on the centre ot the line irom the. Meuse to the North Sen, Riitisli and American troops today are smashing into the rear defences of ib Gas distends tho stomach and caus-! es that full, oppressive, burning feeling sometimes known as heartburn, , while the acid irritates and inflames ' tho delicate lining of the stomach. The trouble lies entirely in the excess development or secretion of acid. To stop or prevent this souring of the food contents of the stomach and to neutralize the acid, and make it bland and harmless, a teaspoonful of bisurated magnesia, a good and effective corrector of acidv Btomach, should be taken in a quarter' of a glass of hot or cold water after eating or whenever gas, sourness or acidity is felt. This s.weetens the stomach and neutralizes the acidity in a few moments and is a perfectly harmless and inexpensive remedy to use. An ant.Iacid, such as bisurated rnag-nesid which can be obtained from any druggist in either powder or tablet form enables j.he stomach to do its work properly without the aid (of artificial digostents. Magnesia comes in several forms, so be certain to ask for and take only Bisurated Magnesia, which is especially prepared for the Above purpose.

S.--President Wilson's reply to the German-Austrian request for an armistice and peace (negotiations probably will be despatched before night, if it is not already on the cables.
