Everrti-idy Kuta Crackers. ?('
The Pennijiltnnla Grocer, g
Everybody eats crackers, and conse- Bl
quently anything relating to their man- 0
ufacture and sale Is of general interest. T
There was a time in thu history of the ]
business when crackers wero all about
the same. One brand was just about as
good as another, and none of them were P
good enough to be of any very great tr
temptation to a delicate stomach. That w
lime has passed. It was a good many k
years ago. The crackers of the present h
Jay anil generation are as different as n
day from night. There are good crackers ir
ipd bad crackers; fresh crackers and hi
stale crackers, and of the whole lot, pi
)Ule crackcrs^ru the worst.
There are some grocers In the country
who sell stale, unpalatable crackers be?use
they can get them cheap and
nake abigprolit on them. Tbey tbink JP
heir customers don't know the differ- *
nee, and by and by when their cracker "
:rade is all gone, and they don't sell a fc
}0x in a wees, they look surprissd and 18
isy: "Funny bow people's tastes JJ
:bange. They don't care lor crackers 'r
my more." w
Don't thsy thought People don't M
:sro for stale, unwholesome crackers, p'
hat's true, but they do oare for a cracker >
hat is pure and freab, and altogether <Ji
lellghtfulas an article of food. The ?t
tfarvin factory, on Liberty street, Pitta- Rl
mrgh, is scarcely able to nil its orders. c0
t is turning out more crackers to-day 111
han it ever did before, and the trade is
.till ?Willi in UQ ttU almnlu. K
