Tho bottle, with Its exhilarating contents,
had been carefully 'witched over nnd saved
for some tlmo previous to tho battle, for tho
purposo of "celebrating tho ovcut," when
Richmond wns captured. A sudden dash of
Confederates, howovcr, changed tho pro

This delicious summer beverage is made in California, from very ripe mellow
Uartlett Pears. In the height of the ilpcning bcaton many tons of pears become too
ripe for shipping or canning purposes, they can then be utnllzcd by pressing tk tn Into

pulverized char coal. This heating, condensing nnd straining completely detlroys fcr

Chicago, Tiny 7th, 1887.
THE G. M. JARVIS CO., Gentlemen!
I have made made n chemical examination of the sample of Jan is' Pear Cidc
submitted to 111c a few das ago, and would report these points among others noted,
'1 he liquid is non-alcoholic and has a specific ginvity of 10.65. The total extrac
tive matter amounts to 10.25 per cent., containing only .025 per ccntoi ficc arid. The
tccts show this arid to be malic ncld ns usuallv found in i'rult juices. I find no other
acid or foreign rubstnncc added for color or tlavor.
I believe it, therefore, to consist simply of the juice of the Pear ns represented.
