poarance bonds after which he asked

Crisco is an entirely different cooking fat.' You never have used
anything like Crisco for frying for shortening or for cake making
because the Crisco Process of treating vegetable oil is new. And
only this process can make the Crisco, or cream, from the oil.
Cream represents the richest,
or lest, of the milk.' .Crisco
represents the richest, yet most
digestible form of food oil.
Crisco is different also ' in this
respect: It remains sweet and
pure indefinitely. For the parts
of the oil which turn rancid are
eliminated by the Crisco Process.
, Do , not confuse Crisco, there
, fore, with other cooking fats.
You can fry onions, then fish,

ities to file information against the
man. While Frahm admits that he
entered his saloon after 9 o'clock
