We pack over a million
bushels of Tomatoes a

as low as four" or five
cans for 25c, but Del
Monte retails at 12c-per can. But if you will
weigh the actual Tomato meat of the cheaper
can, after draining off all the water or juice, and
then do the same with Del Monte, you will find
that Del Monte contains two or three times

Quality does not affect the wholesomeness of the
goods. All packers, we believe, put up only wholesome
goods. Quality refers to flavor and the quantity of
solid vegetable or fruit meat as compared to the water
or juice. If you were able to select all other good
brands from those of cheaper quality, you would get
exactly the same quality as you obtain in, Del Monte,
