is always an important theme it is doubly so at this season. The
well nourished person withstands the disease to which the one careless
about his diet succumbs. It is a fine art in these days of shams and adul
terations to be able to discriminate between the terms cheap and economi
cal. Only standard quality, whatever the price, is really economical, and he
who stands in the market place ever holding aloft the banner inscribed
"cheap" should be avoided. Brain, brawn and nerve force are too essential
to success in this hustling twentieth century to be sacrificed for the sake of
a few pennies saved (?) by buying inferior substitutes for standard brands
Home Comfort Brand
as the name suggests, gives you that after dinner satisfaction which,
makes an optimist of the gloomiest individual. Home Comfort Corn, Suc
cotash, Golden Wax Beans, Kidney Beans, Tomatoes and Apple Butter
are the "four hundred" of the vegetable race.
Then at Teat i me
it is a relief to know that the can of fruit you are about to open will

with Home Comfort vegetables. The varieties are Black Raspberries,
Blackberries, Pineapple, shredded and sliced, Plums, Pears, and Peaches.
These are old York State fruits, too, having that juicy, racy flavor peculiar
