For ten years prior to 1905
the w 's "Minced Sea Clams"
had been constantly and exclu
sively used with the original
"PIONEER" -product, and be
cause of this long usage under the
law others cannot be called
"Minced Sea Clams." To have
identified an excellent reputation
for years and years by the words
"Pioneer Minced Sea Clams" be
came a valuable right. For near
ly a Quarter-of-a-Century in fact,
these words have stood for purity
and unswerving quality, an3 fc
quisiteness of flavor. No other,
product approaches the excel
lencies of "Pioneer."- The formu
la of their preparation is known
only within the family of the man
ufacturers, absolutely unknown
to others. Moreover, "Pioneer;
Minced Sea Clams" are from the
clean, pure ocean sands, washed
by the breakers of the mighty
Pacific this in itself a guarantee
of purity, and adding zest and
relish to this tempting dish. They
fairly smack of the salt sea-, ,
