OVEN BAKED
BEANS
with Tomato Sauce
It reminds you of three things:
how good they taste, how
nourishing they are, and that
you had better order a supply
now while you are thinking
about it
The good taste is due to oven
baking plus perfect seasoning
and flavoring with Heinz de
licious Tomato Sauce. Eating
a wholesome, perfectly pre
pared, easily digested meal ia
bound to be nourishing.
Always keeping a supply on
hand, and ordering a dozen or
so cans at a time, means that
you won't be disappointed at
home when you want Heinz
Baked Beans and that you
save money in buying.

Helping Tempus
to Fugit
Advertising is chief hand-maiden to ambition.
And men who are proud of their products are am
bitious for their wide dissemination and use.
Without advertising, any surprisingly better com
modity will gradually win a following through word-of-mouth
recommendation. This may take years to
accomplish.
The same result is brought about in a fraction of
thp time and therefore at a fraction of the cost by
general advertising.
It is a phenomenon of to-day that a new mode is
adopted simultaneously in Charleston, in Seattle, in
San Bernardino and in Bangor, Maine.
The old days of long cycle between the metropol
itan usage and ultimate rural adoption are past.
Our whole country adopts its new ideas to-day,
together and at the same time.
For national adoption, advertise. It saves time.

STEEL-plra-asbestos gives more
than double the protection of
steel alone. A "Y and E" Fire-Wall
File gives you twice the protection of
an ordinary steel file.
We proved this by having the Under
writers' Laboratories of Chicago test
a "Y and E Fire-Wall Safe in their
furnace.
It withstood that furnace heat
reaching 1,000 degrees for thirty
minutes without serious damage to
its contents.
An ordinary steel file lasted only
fifteen minutes, before its con
tents were blazing.
Insure your business by investing
now in the only file which gives you
steel-plus-asbestos protection.
