We make an exquisite corn meal, and put it up in sealed round packages. In Quaker Cora Meal -\Ve use the cream of the^corn -- about 60 per cent of the kernel. The fibrous outer coat is removed, because it makes corn meal coarse. The oily germ is removed, because the oil grows rancid. Just the hominv part -- yellow or white -- is ground to make Quaker Corn Meal. The result is superlative corn meal, yellow or white. The yellow looks like grains of gold -- the white like marble dust. It makes bread and muffins, porridge, puddings and pancakes vastly better than any crude corn meal. Get the Yellow or White in round packages with tops. See how good corn meal can be. These Grocers Will Feature the Cooker Offer Next Week Anchor Grocery . ,'!18 X J'rfi. St., C'onncllsvillp. Ta.
