We desire to call the attention of ull lovers of (Jood
Bread to the "Siher Cloud" and "Hungarian" brands
of Flour, manufactured by us. These Flours are made
from the choicest wheat that can bo procured. By a
scientific admixture of No. 1 hard Minnesota spring
wheat with the winter wheat, we produce a Flour pos
sessing all the advantages of each kind. The "Silfer
Cloud" is worthy of its name, and makes the whitest
of flaky loaves, though it is especially adapted to pas
try, biscuit, rolls, etc. The "Hungarian" is eKir great
est and best known brand, because it is the great bread
making flour, producing as it does a white, moist, nutty
llarored loaf. Ask your grocer for either brand. You
