What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

A -quarter of a pound of proterio is needed by everyone for daily food says the Rice Journal and Southern Farmer, and the hard working' man needs more. A pound of floar costs six:eit 3 cents and contains 1-8 of a, pound of gluten, yielding about 16041 cetera's. This is about 4.00 calarois more than is yielded by the best beef and almost as Much protein. The protein content in a pound of meat lie 15 .per .cent and in , like a- mount of flour about 12 1 / 2 per cent. A pound of meat costa about 25 :ents. ' • s lesson ought to 'be simple e- nough as to what to eat. The Un- ited States consumes less flour per capita of population than any other lountry in .the world. 'e must come more to a eereal diet and get away from meat.. The farmer who raises the wheat, the miller who .makes wheat into flour and the Roeseler Bakery at Moore, who sonsclenintusly turn the nous into good bread, are real ben- efactors to humanity. Adv.
