their helplessness, and sometimes, his

THERE IS SOMETHING IN IT FOR YOU!
IT IS NOT THE HIGH COST OF LIVING THAT HURTS BUT THE COST OF HIGH LIVING
Do you want to economize? Then use Snow Drift Lard in place of High-priced Hog Fats and Butter. Snow
Drift is One-third cheaper than Hog Lard. It costs less, goes further and is purer and more wholesome. It contains
nothing but cotton seed oil, refined by a special process, and Beef Stearine. It is a home product, made by the
Southern Cotton Oil Company, Savannah, Ga., and is eminently worthy of your consideration.
Packed only in sealed, sanitary tin pails. Use one bucket and you will never want a substitute. Don't con
fuse Snow Drift with cheap compounds. We want to get Snow Drift into every home in the territory and in or
der to do this the Factory has authorized us to make a special low price to the Merchants this week. They will
