The Importance of Good Bread
To the Family Health.
Do your children have the robust look?
You owe it to yourself, nnd little ones to use the. best und
most nutriciouB bread that you can get. Bread costs the least of
all foods that go to make up n meal and yet is tho most nourish
inii. Good broad costs no more than bad bread even when baked
at home. Baking good bread is a science that cannot be leained
without much experience and many failures.
So called BAD LUCK in making bread is really a lack of
knowledge in combining materials, proper fermenting and handling
of the doiijjh nnd baking in the right heat. Dickey's Krisp Krust
and Dickey s Homo Breads are wholesome and nutricious from day
to day because they are made with utmost care by bakers that
have made practical baking their life work. Buy Dickey's Krisp
Krust ox Dickey's Homo Made and get tho best. Your grocer
has it. 10 and 15 cent loaves.
