Certainly it seems like carrying coals to Newcastle to speak of export? ing oatmeal to Scotland and yet, every year tbe Quaker Oats Company sends hundreds of thousand? of cases of Suaker Oats to Great Britian and urope. The reason is simple: while the English and Scotch have for centuries eaten oatmeal in quantities and with a regularity that has made them the most rugged physically, and active mentally of all people, the American has been eating oatmeal and trying all the tame to improve the methods of manufacture so that he might get that desirable foreign trade. How well he has succeeded would be seen at a glance at tbe export re? ports on Quaker Oats. This brand is without a rival; is packed in regular 10c packages, and in hermetically seal? ed uns for hot climates.
