Fruit Cake Season
We are justly proud of the fruit cakes which we baked last year.
The popularity of these cakes and the many compliments of the peo-
ple who told us that, “it was the best fruit cake I ever ate,” gave to us
the assurance that the public liked high quality Fruit Cakes.
Better Than Ever This
Preparations have been made to bake Fruit Cakes again
this year. The best products that money can buy will be
used. Nuts and candied fruits along with other materials
which will asshre you an exceedingly rich and tasty cake.
These Fruit Cakes will save you the trouble and worry, of
making one yourself, and you will have the assurance, too
that the Fruit Cake which you buy here is just as good
.7, ^ perhaps better, than you could make yourself.
