The news has come this week of the experiments of a large producer of bread to combat the competition of the "oven-hot" loaf of the family baker. With the widening field that must ever be sought for plant-produced bread, these manufacturers have been seeking a method of producing oven-fresh bread before the customer.

Some shops of multiple concerns in heavily populated areas have been carrying window banners to the effect that bread was delivered freshly twice and thrice daily, with the delivery times stated. This has been carried further so that really hot bread can be sold (pictured). The ingenuity of the plant producer must be commended.
