EAT RICE, GROW FAT, AND SAVE '
From the Memphis Commercial-Appeal.
This Is a tree advertisement for rice
Rice is one of the few food products
that has not advanced in price. You
can get about four pounds of rice for
a quarter. A quarter's worth of rice
will carry you further than SO cents'
worth of beef. A quarter's worth of
rice will carry you as far as 50 cents'
worth of flour.
Rice is a wholesome food. Fashion
caused a reduction of the greatest food
value in rice requiring it to be polished.
There ought to be a law forbidding
the whitening of flour and polishing
of rice. The law should be so
that the whole grain should be ground
into flour. People would have better
teeth and better digestion.
But this article is about cheap food
and not about the business of keeping

So. if you do not want to spend all
your money for food, buy rice.
If yon want to have a variety in your

And if you want a dessert buy
