About "Pure Gold" E"r-
ETWEEN THE UPPER AND
nether millstone" is a saying as
"old as the hills." Biblical and
other records of the Patriarchal times tell us
of the Jewish and Eastern women powdering
the golden grain.
It's a long cry from those times and their
methods of treating the "staff of life" to now
with its great steam roller flour mills.
From the finest wheat grown in the great
wheat belt of the United States the store
house of the wold for wheat is produced
Pure Gold Flour
IT it. a carefully thought out, scientific blend of. the hard,
flinty i heat grown in the colder climate of the northern wheat
section, with the softer grains which grow in the southern section
where the climate is less vigorous. Properly blended, the wheat
from the north virile and full of strength from its growth amid
-4he frost and sunshine and the softer wheat grown in sunnier
climes and where tho rigors of cold are unknown, makes the very
best flour. Such is PURE GOLD.
Nor is that all It is milled by the latest process, and
what will appeal to the consumer more than anything else, prob
ably is the absolute cleanliness that is insisted upon and that
prevails in a modern flour mill.
Those who have not tried Pure Gold should do so
Those who have used it, will use nothing else.

A. P. SKINNER,
A Prominent Man
Chicago, Dec. 4. General Brown, vice-president of
the Lake Shore railroad system, in an interview this morn
ing very earnestly endorsed the suggestions made by Pres
ident Roosevelt in his message concerning the improve
ment of arid lands in the western states. General Brown

that land cultivated by the aid of irrigation is much more
productive than when nature is relied upon to water it.
The hope of the future, he says, lies in the sma'1 farmer
and irrigated land gives him the opportunity, the embrac
ing which will lead to health, wealth and happiness.

ring contest, has been matched with
Dave Sullivan for a twenty-five round
go. The stakes to be $5,000 a side.
While it is believed that the fistic con
test will be on the square it Is hardly
thought among tho sporting fraternity
that the (5,000 bet Is bona fide.
McGovern has challenged Young
Corbett for another fight and It Is ex
pected that articles for it will be signed

at these odds.
