To a Million Homes
We have supplied Quaker Cookers to
a million homes at very little prices.
But the cost has advanced until our offer
is almost impossible.
But grocers tell us that many house
wives missed our former offer. They are
using Quaker Oats and Pettijohn's, and
they want this Aluminum Cooker. In
fairness, they should have it.
So we renew this offer for next week
only. It applies only to housewives
whom we have not supplied already. It
applies only to users of Quaker Oatsor
Pettijohn's, or both. It means twice as
much as this Dollar Offer meant two
years ago. Get this Cooker next week
if you are entitled to it. You owe that

Which Saves You 7596
Measured by food value, Quaker Oats costs one*fomth as much as the
average mixed diet. So each dollar you spend for Quaker Oats saves an
average of $3. Oats stand supreme, among grain foods, in nutrition and in
flavor. They form a complete food, supplying every need. A an energy
food their fame is proverbial.
Make this the chief breakfast dish. Meat and eggs cost five and six
times as much. Also use Quaker Oats in bread and muffins, pancakes and
cookies. N other food is so economical.
Use Quaker Oats because of the matchless flavor. It is made of queen
grains onlyjust the big, plump, luscious oats. We get bat 10 pounds from
a bushel. Yet it costs you no extra price.

The Laxative Luxury
Pettijohn's Breakfast Food is soft rolled wheat, hiding 25 per cent bran
flakes. It is a flavory dainty of which no one ever tires. And it supplies
the needed bran. Bran is Nature's laxative. Everybody needs it. Most
folks would feel better if they ate it every day.
Fine foods clog the system. Bran supplies the needed roughage. Every
doctor, as you know, urges its use, to avoid the need of drugs.
Try it one week. Note the good spirits which result, iNever again wills
you return to a branless diet.
Pettijohn's Flour is another bran dainty. That is 75 per cent white
patent flour and 25 per cent bran flakes. Use like Graham flour in any recipe.
With these two products every meal can include some bran-made dainty.
