Pamphlet excerpt

"Today [1907], the American woman is leading a life scarcely less strenuous than the American man, and the breast-feeding mother is the exception rather than the rule. Such being the case, it is of the highest importance, in selecting an artificial food, that one be chosen that resembles mothers' milk as closely as possible, and enables the mother to rear healthy offspring." (from "How to Care for the Baby," by Smith, Kline & French Co., 1907)

Babies develop into STURDY CHILDREN

Dr. Dean S. Brown, Erie, Pa., wrote as follows, when his boy was one year old;

"Your food is the best I have found upon the market. I have raised my own boy (whose picture appears here) upon it, and at the age of one year he weighs 25 pounds, and has strength accordingly. I tested several other foods, but they all failed. Yours is not only beneficial to healthy children, but is well borne in sickness and easily digested. I can highly recommend it to anyone in need of a food, for it is certainly a Godsend to many a little one."

Dr. Brown has since sent us the boy's picture at three and six years, and states that he is particularly strong and vigorous.
