Well, we do, and plenty of it- good, rich, pasteurized milk that malices strong, healthy toys and girls. And flour—not just any kind, but i;specially selected, short-patent flour, milled from the very heart of the wheat berry, always the same quality. Don't be deceived into buying cheap bread. Cheap bread cheats boys and girls, and is not worth the price yoi^ pay for it. Compare the way our bread toasts with the way cheap bread toasts. Dairy Maid Bread toasts evenly, cheap bread toast is uneven and burris in spots. Only perfect bread makes perfect toast. ; . Buy Dairy Maid Bread. Algona Bak Bridge Dinner— • Mrs. F. F.
