Every newspaper you pick up, every magazine you read
and almost everywhere you go you hear of the INCREASED
cost of goods of every kind. :v
Foods have advanced, in tome instances to a degree little
realized by many persons.
Flour has increased in two years 100 percent sugar, 70
percent lard, 65 percent eggs, 40 percent potatoes, 25 per
cent, and so on right through the list of daily necessities.
The advance in Bread is nothing when compared to the
above figures, but the Bakers are forced to quit baking the
nickle loaf. It is absolutely impossible to bake a nourishing
loaf of Bread and retail it at 5 cents.
Bakers' Bread is rich in food value—you cannot find a
better and more enjoyable food than Bread.

When Philadelphia Was Bigger.
World's Work: An examination of
American cities a century ago pre
sent* many curiosities. In 1800," not
New York, but Philadelphia, was our
largest city—a pre-eminence it held
until 1830. After Philadelphia. New
York, Baltimore and Boston, Charles
ton, S. C., was the largest American
city. But I defy anyone to give the
name of uie sixth largest American
town in 1800. It was Northern Lib
erties. How many Americans today
ever heard of this metropolis? An
antiquarian research discloses that it
is now part of Philadelphia, After
Northern Liberties, our biggest city
was Southwark, Pa., then came
Salem, Mass. Such were the places
100 years ago, which were entered jn
the competition for primacy.
