Interesting poem sited in "Reliable Flour" brochure:

In olden days the housewife sought
The village store to barter
Her eggs and truck for flour and meal
And likewise, cream of tartar.

But no one knew until 'twas tried
The fate of Cake or Biscuit;
So people said, "This all is wrong–
'Tis foolishness to risk it."

Then Reliable's Pastry and fine Cake
By all were envied sadly;
They said, "Tell us your recipe.
We'll buy, and use it gladly."

So Reliable said, "This flour obtains
In just the right proportion,
The Cream of Tartar, Soda, pure
Relieves you of precaution."

So don't delay, but buy to-day
"Biscuit"-"Corn Cake"–"Entire Wheat"
Or "Graham," all are praising;
"Reliable" Prepared is the brand–
And mark you–all Self-raising.

Condition: Both brochures in excellent condition. Slight discoloration, not as pronounced as in pics.
