It isn't the ^
kind of food you eat, but rather what
your stomach fails to digest, that gives you indigestion. Lard
is a foe to digestion. If you had the stomach of an ostrich
you could hardly withstand the ravages of lard-soaked pastry. You
have probably found this out and already given up the eating of pastry.
Tit wholly unnecessary! Anyone can eat and digest food cooked with
Cottolene—the perfect shortening. It is a pure vegetable product, made
from the best beef suet and choicest vegetable oil. It is neutral in
taste and odor ; it is Nature's Gift from the Sunny South.
Cottolene is never sold in bulk. It is put up in carefully sealed
tin pails. And right here 4s another advantage. When you buy lard
you have no protection as to quality—you simply know you are getting
LARD—never mind the grade, it's just L-A-R-D. On the other hand,
pail of Cottolene is uniform—the product is guaranteed. You take
no chances whatever.
In the face of these facts just ask yourself if you can afford to uso
hog lard when you can get pure, healthful, nutritious Cottolene.
USE & LESS. Cottolene being richer than either lard or cooking
butter, one-third less is required.
