Remember! The time, March 20, 1909, at 2 o'clock. Remember the place, Barrett, Stoolfer & Owens. Remember the occasion, Bulte's Best Biscuits, Mayfair Coffee.
From the March 11, 1909 Skidmore, Missouri New Era, page 14.

A Big Demonstration.

Two hundred guests were served Saturday with hot biscuits and coffee by Barrett, Stoolfer & Owens in their store.  It was a demonstration given exhibiting the superior qualities of their celebrated Bulte’s Best flour and fine Mayfair coffee.  This firm has handled this one brand of flour so long, with such general satisfaction to their trade, that they have excluded all other make and keep only three grades of Bulte’s Best flour for their customers.  The biscuits were made by Mrs. A. H. Garnett and the coffee prepared by Mrs. Henry Barrett, two adept hands in culinary art.  The stoves used were the “New Perfection” oil stoves, furnished by Manchester & Dodds.
