without fail express your appreciation of
their hospitality; nlludo to tho pleasure tho

pardonable rudeness and is ungrateful. And,

Jarvis' California Pear Cider.
This delicious summer beverage is tnndc In California, from very ripe mellow
Hartlctt Pears. In the height of the ripening season many tons of pears become too
ripe for shipping or canning purposes, they can then be utalied by pressing them into
cider. The fresh juice Is boiled down two gallons intoone, nnd Is then strained through
pulverized char coal. This heating, condensing and straining completely destroys fcr
inentatlon.nnil the cider ever afterwards rcninlns sweet and good nnd Is a most healthy
and nutritious article for family use.

I have made made n chemical examination of the sample of Jnrvls' Pear Ode
submitted to me n few dujs ago, and would report these points among others noted.
'1 he liquid Is non-alcoholic and has a specific gravity of 10.65. The total cxtrac
tive matter amounts to 10.25 l'-'r cent, containing only .621; per cent of free acid. The
tests show this acid to be malic acid as usually found in fYuit juices. 1 find no other
ncld or foreign substance added for color or flavor.
I believe It, therefore, to consist simply of the juice of the Pear as icprcsented.
