The Savory seamless roaster
needs no water, grease or
of any kind. It simply, asks
to be let alone. Retains all juices
and flavors, renews the youth of
the toughest fowl. One great
feature of the Savory roaster is
the oval bottom, with the
nary flat bottom roaster the
moisture brought out of the meat
cooking has no chance to ac-
cumulate and is burned and dried
up in the bottom of the pan. In
the oval this meat juice
flows continuously to the lowest
point of the bottom, where it is
turned into steam and condensed
on the surface of the meat. I his
condensation continues until the
roast lies become heated through
to the temperature of the
in the roaster, the
condensation stops and the brown
ingot the roast begins.
The Savory roaster is sell bast-
and self browning. The
bottom is raised oil the oven

for the market; namely sun
cured, air cured and flue cured.
The old and cheap way is called air
cured; the later discovery and
proved way is called flue cured.
In flue curing the tobacco is taken
from the fields and racked in barns
especially built to retain heat and
there subjected to a continuous high
temperature, produced by the direct
heat of flame heated flues, which
brings out in the tobacco that
stimulating taste and aroma that
expert roasting develops in green
coffee. These similar processes give
to both tobacco and coffee the cheer-
and stimulating quality that pop-
their use.
The quality of tobacco depends
much on the curing process and the
kind of soil that produces it, as ex-
pert tests prove that this flue cured
tobacco- grown in the famous Pied-
region, requires and takes less
sweetening than tobacco grown in
any other section of the United States
and has a wholesome, stimulating,
juicy, full tobacco taste that satisfies
tobacco hunger. That's why chewers
prefer Schnapps, because Schnapps
cheers more than any other chewing
tobacco, and that's why chewers of
Schnapps pass the good thing along
one chewer makes other chewers,
until the fact is established that
there are more chewers and more
pounds of tobacco chewed to the
population in states-where Schnapps
tobacco is sold than there are in
those states where Schnapps not
yet been offered to the trade.
A plug of Schnapps is more
economical than a much larger
plug of cheap tobacco. Sold at
per pound in cuts. Strictly
and cent plugs.

The duty of every business man

so afraid of leaving their places
a little while, would not give
proper attention to movements

of the objects of the Chamber of
