fill- a lcng-fe!t want, and the demand for it
is so great in Xcw England that its succes- is
an established fact. Cottolene is a perfectly
pure and healthful product. Ii is composed
of So per cent, pure cotton seed oil and 20
per cent, pure beef suet nothing else. It
has no odor and is more easily handled than
lard, avoids the unpleasant odor attached to
hot lard, and better yet, avoids the unhealthy
effects inseparable from the use ot hog lard
rersons who could not eat pies or pastry
cooked with hog's lard can eat heartily of
these articles when cooked with Cottolene
without fear of disagreeable con-equences.
