New Post Toasties are ready to eat direct from
the package. They have a fine new flavour self
developed by a new patented process. It's the rare,
true flavour of prime, white Indian corn itself, and
these New Toasties are the first corn flakes that do
not depend on cream and sugar for palatability.
The proof of this superior flavour" is found by eat
ing some from the package dry. They're deliciously
good that way, but of course are usually served with
cream or good milk.
Examine the New Post Toasties flakes. The quick,
fierce heat of the new process of manufacture, not
only raises the distinguishing little bubbles on each
flake, but gives a body and firmness that makes the
New Toasties a more substantial food than ordinary
New Post Toasties do not "chaff" or crumble in
the package, and they don't mush down when cream
is added. They come to you untouched by hand, and
in moisture-proof packages that preserve their de
lightful oven-crispness until served at your table.
Well worth trying these
New Post Toasties

"The Birth of a Nation" is a thriller
but oo has to beur in mind that it is
creating prejudice against the colored
race. During the Civil war the con
federate whites left their homes in the
care of their colored slaves, mid the
trust was never betrayed. Their wo
men folks were su'fe. They shed their
blood freely in the Civil war, and a reg
iment, the Ninth U. H. cavalry, saved
Roosevelt's regiment in the Snntiago
attack, in the Spanish-American war.
One of that same colored regiment is a
resident in this city.
The Ku Klux Klun is idealized, but
remember it was an irresponsible body
of masked sight riders formed to pre
vent the colored men from exercising
the right conferred to vote. They de
ported, whipped, tortured and murdered
the terrorized negroes, and some whites
against whom they held a grudge. Their
outrages were so numerous and wide
spread that Grant and congress by leg
islation suppressed them.
If to offset "The Birth of a Nation"
"Uncle Tom's Cabin" were also
thrown on the screen, and the faith
fulness of many of the blacks, and the
inhumanity shown the slaves were
shown forth, it would not be so one
sided, nor would here be the prejudice
awakened. I- A.

Great pitchers came and cut some
