You owe it to yourself, nnd little ones to use the. best und most nutriciouB bread that you can get. Bread costs the least of all foods that go to make up n meal and yet is tho most nourish inii. Good broad costs no more than bad bread even when baked at home. Baking good bread is a science that cannot be leained without much experience and many failures. So called BAD LUCK in making bread is really a lack of knowledge in combining materials, proper fermenting and handling of the doiijjh nnd baking in the right heat. Dickey's Krisp Krust and Dickey s Homo Breads are wholesome and nutricious from day to day because they are made with utmost care by bakers that have made practical baking their life work. Buy Dickey's Krisp Krust ox Dickey's Homo Made and get tho best. Your grocer has it. 10 and 15 cent loaves. Cuts without crumbling and butters with out breaking. DICKEY'S BAKERY.
