Good bread makes good toast. Some make toast of
the dried up and left over slices. They do not
know the delights ot golden brown toast made
from the best of bread. Crisply appetizing
on the outside, thoroughly cooked vet soft on
the inside, it needs only good butter to make
a delectable morsel.
Bread made from ordinary flour rarely makes good toast. The
low percentage of gluten the water absorbing quality
jT tends to make ordinary flour bread stale in 24 hours. The
jr result is that the slice toasts too quickly the outside is
burned not browned, the inside is dry not moist.
Bread made from Occident Special Patent Flour makes the best toast.
Mix your clouRh rather wet a full measure
of yeast,' a. little less flour and your bread
will make ideal and perfect toast.
Occident Flour makes more loaves per sack
than ordinary flour so you don't mind
payinjr a little more for it. It is the home
economy flour. Ask your grocer for your
