Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 17, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta UETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, SATURDAY, APRIL 17, IMf. The Best of All Breakfast Foods There's a reason behind all fads and fancies. We required light breakfast foods and the market was flooded with health foods (so-called.) best breakfast food in the world is "Zephyr Cream" Soda Biscuits crushed in cream or fresh, sweet milk. Christie's "Zephyr Cream" Sodas have more original goodness than all other sodas manufactured on this continent. More than that, the original goodness of Christie's Biscuits is lasting. The flavor does not vary. All big biscuit makers buy a good brand of flour. We buy all good brands. Then we blend the best brands, sift and test the blend until we find a dough that will sustain the Christie reputation. Expensive! we know no other way 1 of starting to make biscuits up to our own high standards. Every ingredient entering into our "bakes" is the purest and best we can buy. Our Zephyr Cream Sodas crushed in cream, or fresh milk, certainly do make an excel- lent light breakfast. You test them. AT YOUR GROCER'S Sold in bulk, or in small family damp and dust-proof.

We do not often get a chance in this Western country to hear public speaking, as our cities, are far apart, the occasions for speechifying few and orators, as a rule, rather scarce It is therefore quite n.n event when a chance comes, as it did the other afternoon, to sit under some of Al- berta's foremost educationists, and we had a right to expect some good speaking. If we expected eloquence we were disappointed, for there was none. The addresses were plain and straightforward and dwelt in the main on the advantages of the. new school.
