The Gibbs Inspector Says:
“Every Tomato that goes Into Glbb9 Cat
sup must pass under the eyes of SIX Inspec
tors, —and I am ONE. After the Tomatoes
are thoroughly washed, some slight Imper
fections are likely to appear. The smallest
SPOT, or SOFTNESS, or GREENNESS,—
will cause us to take-out the imperfect To
mato as UNFIT. One Inspector may err,
but SIX makes the Inspection THOROUGH.”
GIBBS HEAD CATSUP
is offered you as an Absolutely PURE Cat
sup,—of Fine Flavor. Though we purchase
only CHOICE Tomatoes, —the "Pick of the
Crop,”—yet, after the Tomatoes are washed
under MANY Sprays of Water, —our Inspec
tors throw out One Tomato in every Twenty
five.—To these WELL-INSPECTED Toma
toes is added only Granulated Table Sugar
and Spices. NO PRESERVATIVES. Gibbs
