Canning is the art of preserving a food
product in a hermetically sealed con
tainer, the preservation being; accom
plished through sterilisation by meana
of heat. In Its highest ene the object Is
to retain the food In as nearly fresh con
dition as possible as to appearance, pal
atability and nutritive quality, or In the
condition in whichlt is usually consumed.
It affords the means of bavins; whole
some, succulent vegetables or other
products at all times and in places where
otherwise the cost or the labor of prep
aration would be prohibitive.

There can be little doubt in the mind
of anyone who has visited a modern can

tables are being prepared for the mar

National Canned Foods Week! 1
Millions of women in millions of homes will participate. Hundreds of thousands of retailers, grocers, jobber
and manufacturers in almost every city and town are making canned fruit, vegetables, fish, milk and meats
their sales features from March 31st to April 5th.
A Week of Pure Food the Country Over
What Dr. Wiley Says
Thousands of women who now use
Canned Poods will buy their supplies this
week. Thousands who've tiredof canntne
their own foods will tajce advantage of it.
This week is aclimax of the great mod
ern demand for pure food and economy.
In Canned Foods today is the realization
of thrs nation-wide demand. In Canned
Foods Week is the proof of purity. And
the proof that the cost of the best of these
foods is within every housewife's reach.
Dr. Wiley, Marion Harland, and others
are printing their ideas in the newspapers
in regard to Canned Foods and their
benefits their cleanliness, purity, and
food value. See what they say. Look for
recipes by University Instructors in
Domestic Science. See what the Food
Technologist of theUnitcdStatcs Bureau
of Chemistry says about Canned Foods,
of which there are sold in this country
$80,000,000 worth yearly. Get theso
people's ideas on the goodness of Canned
Foods, the flavor, the methods of prep
aration and their health-giving qualities.
See, then, if you don't want to USE
MORE CANNED FOODS THAN YOU
EVER HAVE USED BEFORE.
These arc the world's finest low-cost
foods. Food can't be prepared any
Cooked in the Containers at 250 Degrees
Foods sold in cans are picked or pro
cured close to the canneries. Usually
not more than four or five hours pass
from the time these foods are taken from
their natural surroundings until they are
sealed in the cans, steriliced at 250 de
grees and ready for the market. They
retain all their flavor, their natural fresh
ness, their purity and food value intact.
You open them in your kitchen as good
as the day the containers were filled at
And most of these foods are canned
by machinery kept immaculately clean.
These canneries are like modern kitchens
in the great hotels. Even the walls and
ceilings are washed and thousand'.) of
gallons of hot water are daily used to
scour and clean every part of the factory.
They are spotless and white and inviting.
You will serve Canned Foods daily, as
millions now do, when you fully realise
the -2 facts.
See Your Dealer This Week
See what he has fruits, vegetabir.

economies can be effected until you have
used them regularly.

It Is no longer necessary for any one
to suffer with backachlns, kidney trou
ble, have dlsasrceable bladder and urin
ary disorders to contend with, or be
tortured with rheumatism, stiff joints,
and its heart-wrenching pains, for tho
new discovery, Croxone, quickly and
surely relieves all such troubles.
Croxone Is the most wonderful rem
edy yet devised for ridding; the system
of Uric Held and driving out nil the poi
sonous impurities which cause such
troubles. It Is entirely different from
all other remedies. It is not like any
thing else ever used for the purpose. It
acts on the principle of cleaning out the
poisons and removing the cause.
It -soaks right In through the walls,
membranes and linings, like water In a
sponge, neutralizes, dissolves, and makes
the kidneys sift out and filter away, all
the urln acid and poisons from the blood,
and leaves the kidneys and urinary
organs clean, strong, healthy, and well.
It matters not how long you have suf
fered, how old you are, or what you
have u-sed, the very principle of Crox
one is such, that It 1$ practically Im
possible to take It Into the human sys
tem without results. There Is nothing
ehe on earth like It. It starts to work
the minute you take It and relieves you
th first time you use it.
U you suffer with pains In your back,
nnd rides, or have any signs of kidney,
bladder troubles, or rheumatism, such
as puffy swellings under the eyes or In
the feet and ankles, If you are nervous,
ti d, and run down or bothered with
I i disorder. Croxone will quickly
r leve ou of your misery. You can
