muscles of the men stand out like
As a matter of fact we have ath
letes and strong men?men fed on
line strength making food such as
Quaker Oats?that would win in any
??outest with the old Roman or Greek
It's a matter of food. The finest food
for making strength of bone, musclo
and nerve is fine oatmeal. Quaker
Oats is the best because it is pure, no
husks or stems or black specks. Karm

the farm hands plentifully on Quaker
Oats they get the best results in work
and economj. If you live in a hot cli
mate buy Quaker Oats in hermetically
sealed tins. It keeps sweet and fresh.
