Of nil the fruits that grow to glv'1
sustenance and nourishment to man
kind, the grape is the most famous.
A favorite subject of the poet, his
healthful, luscious fruit has from
the beginning of time been celebrated

pleasure to know that to the grape
we are lydebted for some of the finest
fends that go to our table, for from
the grape Is derived Koyal Grn,ic
Cream of Tartar, the chief ingredient
and active principle of the world- re
nowned Koyal Making Powder.
While the connection between bak
