Steady your nerves, and
perfect your digestion
by using bread made
from our whole wheat
flour. Jt is made from
the wnole wheat berry
except the out side hull,
or bran, which is a woody
substance, irritating and
indigestible. Bread made
from this flour is not so
white as that made from
the pale white roller flour,
but it is far superior for
food as it contains all the
gluten, germ, and oily
matter, of the wheat and
is much sweeter than
graham or any other
bread i vu:iil
