I Enjoy a Dish of Ralston Health Oats These Crisp Mornings

Came across these amazing food advertisements and graphics in a 1902 issue of Ladies Home Journal at work. (Reason #985,172 I love what I do). I’m relatively certain that the Cream of Wheat gentleman has not changed in the last century.

Any thoughts on what the above cooking implements on the left might be?  I say food mill and some sort of warming device.

Is this Purina the same one that now produces pet food?  Wonder when things changed, and why?
