Wero you to chooso tho kind of bottled soda to drink, would you

as Automatic filling machine. Rlnsors and Sanitary sonkoro and storll
zor. AftQr theso cleaning processes tho bottles are rinsed under pres
Buro from your city mains . nllowlng a nice clean stream of .wator
passing Into each bottlo under a pressure of thlrty-ilvo or forty
pounds always insuring a sanitary package.
Bottled sodas prepared by some manufacturers to start with tho
bottles nro dumped Into a tank of cold wntor and washed by hand,
nothing aided to kill impurities or to storlllzo tho bottles, after this
washing process they nro filled with so called Boda water ami go to tho
consumer nnd often times aro full of impurities. Thoreforo Is It any
wonder tho public demand bettor pure food regulation?
Wo havo always prided ourselves In tho quality and cleanliness of
our packages nnd a great mnny of you aro personal witnesses of our
grpwth in tho short timo wo hnvo heon with you.
I havo heard of soda, water botttors, slnco I havo boon in tho bot
tling "business that would try to push poor and dirty and cheap sodas off
on tho clildrcn. But will truthfully nnd frankly say to tho public that
I nover built up my bottling business to tho prosont Btaudard by 'stoop
ing to such jnothods. Our growth hns been jnado by quality gpods.nnd
a square deal and a boost for tho town wo itvo In and tliesp things

To contradict such falso and malicious statements and to dem
onstrate that bottled soda wator particularly Is tho purost, most health
ful and most refreshing of nil summer bovornges and It Is 'only nocos
nary to consider tho following simple truths which aro easily proven
and cannot ho contradicted.
1st. Absoluto .cleanliness Is tho first requisite of ovory successful
2d. Puro cnrbonlc acid gas In bovornges Is healthful, refreshing
and tonic in its action upon the tllgostlvo organs.
3d. No flavoring or coloring which Is harmful and no deleterious
drugs arc now permitted to bo used In bottled or fountain soda wator.
4th. Thero is abundant medical testimony to provo tho beneficial
Influence and refreshing effect of carbonic acid gas upon tho appotito
and digestion. Ask your doctor about it.
Tho bottler does not mako tho gas, )ut buys it, purified and
liquified from tho lnrgo manufacturers, thus Insuring nono but tho pur
