A Lesson of Quality
The Free Cooking Lectures now being given
in the Y. M. C. A. auditorium of this city by
the Bethany Home Association demonstrate
that the best bread is made from the best flour,
and the. best bread, such as . Mrs. Saunders
makes, is so superior to ordinary bread, made
from ordinary flours, that the wonder is any
bread maker, or any bread eater, would be sat
isfied with anything else than the best bread.
This Flour is Sold Only Under the Brand of
The NoLtioaal Flour
NOTE: By special request of the ladies of Rock Island the lesson on
bread baking will be repeated Monday afternoon for the benef
of those who could not attend last Wednesday.
