See photos. In the 19c in the US Ralstonism was a minor social movement. It began as the Ralston Health Club, publisher of the writings of Webster Edgerly (1852 - 1926). The theories expounded where health related, very unconventional, biased, with no sound medical advice. This crate might have been used to distribute some of his profound writings. In 1900 Edgerly joined forces with Purina Foods. It made whole-wheat cereal that Ralstonites were to consume. The food company Edgerly founded evolved into what is now called Ralcorp, and was the original owner of the cereal brands Chex and Cookie Crisp.
