SUCCESS OF THE CENTURY.
TJie Newspapers Given Due Credit
by tlie Figprune Cereal Co.
The old saying that the best article,
properly advertised, will' win out in face
of all opposition, has been actually dem
strated by the Figprune Cereal Co. of
San Jose, Cal.
Their cereal coffee "Figprune" is
made from choice California figs and
prunes ar.d sound, well ripened grain so
blended that all the nutritive properties
of fruit and grain are retained.
Tlie-beverage made from Figprune is
a distinct revelation to cereal coffee
drinkers because of its delicate flavor
and aroma. '
Mr. A. S. Rix, president of the com
pany, in a rect-nt interview stated
that the success already attained by
his company was due, first, to the fact y
tbat Figprune was the best cereal coffee
ever produced ; second, that the adver
tising mediums used had been selected
for their actual merit only the best pa
pers be inn used.
. It is pleasing to note that this paper
is one of the uiediums selected by the
shrewd president of the company, and
has aided in blazing a path for other
food product advertisers to follow.
