Insures Uniformity . For years Hills Bros, have enjoyed a distinct advantage in the coffee roasting industry. For they have a patented roasting process that prevents variation in flavor. The basic principle of the process is roasting "a little at a time." Automatically measured lots of rare blended coffees--about three pounds--are introduced into "the roaster in a steady stream and pass along in a continuous flow, roasting a little at a time. The speed of the flow and degree of heat never vary with the result that Hills Bros. Coffee is absolutely uniform. ' No other coffee has the same delicious flavor of Hills Bros. Coffee because no other coffee is roasted the same way. This patented process--Controlled Roasting--is radically different from the common bulk-roasting method. Freshness is assured in r Hills Bros. Coffee because it is packed in. vacuum cans. By this process, air, which destroys the flavor of colVee, is removed from the can'and kept out. Ordinary cans, even if airtight, do not keep coffee fresh. Grocers everywhere sell Hills Bros. Coffee. Ask for it by name and look for the Arab--the trade-mark--on the can. Hills Bros. Coffee, Inc., Minneapolis, Minnesota. HOSTESS TO WALES dssonited Press Photo fyJRS. HAROLD J.
