When you order a sack of patent flour
from your grocer, do not tell him to
send you "a sack of good flour", but
tell him to send you a sack of "Clifton,"
because "Clifton" is the best patent.
Every sack is sold with this guarantee,
and if it does not. prove as represented,
your money will be refunded. "Clifton"
is an all-round flour, and is as good for
cake and pastry as light rolls and bis
