Postum, the sort of hot drink to build friendships over as you socialize. Good for the whole family.
Down in Pine Ridge Lum and Abner are now operating the Lonesome Hearts matrimonial bureau. Abner is on the phone to talk to a potential client for the bureau.
He describes to Sister Simpson how the business works. Sign up and pay $25, send in a picture, and get pictures of all the menfolk, then just decide on someone. The flood of women clients arrive in the form of the day’s mail.
Since Lum is a client, he reads a letter or two. Has he found any women to suit him yet? A widow with land, and a pack of kids. A woman from Texas with oil wells. A woman working in a beauty salloon and looking for a younger man.
Finally, Lum is struck by a photo, and learns that she’s an actress, and circus knife thrower. Hmm… maybe not such a great idea. I wonder how many boyfriends she goes through in a season?
Postum, it’s good for a healthy diet and safe even for kids. Whole wheat and bran with a mellow rich flavor.
