Lots of energy is needed to' keep up the pace. In
the struggle, the man with the strong body and .clear
brain wins out every time.
The man of to-day needs something more than
mere food; he needs a food that makes energy a food
to work on.

a fact, proved and established beyond doubt, that soda
crackers and this means U need a BiSCUit arc
richer in muscle and fat-making elements and have a
much higher per cent of tissue-building properties
than any other article of food made from flour.
That thisis becoming known more and more every
day is attested by the sale of nearly 400,000,000 pack
ages of Uneeda BiSCUit f the finest soda cracker
ever baked. An energy-giving food of surpassing
value sold in a package which brings it to you with
all the original flavor and rutriment perfectly pre
