FKEfc.AJvS LIQUID ANNATTO FOR COLOUR ING CHEESE AND BUTT JR. J FREEMAN, having mads great improvements • in the manufacture of Annatto, now fearlessly challenges the worid for quality and cost. This preparation was introduced to the public ,in 1829 and is now generally used in England and Wales, Holland, Scotland, and America, in preference to all others, for the richness and durability of its colour, convenience in using, and cheapness. The following Testimonials are respectfully submittf to Dairy Farmers :— Raydale Hall, Leicestershire Jan 5, 1856. Dear Sir,—Your request has ust been communicate to me—that I would give a perfectly unprejudiced opinion of the quality of your Annatto. I have no hesitation in stating that in point of COST (so small a quantity sufficing), and in its peculiar brilliancy of colour, it is the best thing of the kind I have yet seen. I have great pleasure in adding my humble testimonial as to its merits as a colour- ing for cheese and butter. I am, dear Sir, yonrsrespectfully, JOHN NUTTALL.

AND SUMMERS R Manufacturers of ,ODA WA ER and PO TASS WATER, LEMONADE, UINGERADE, and FLUID MAGNESIA; also of the IMPERIAL GERMAN SELTZER WAIERS, 15 and 37, BRIDGE-STREET, BRISTOL. There are probably no Mineral Waters in the world whose curative powers in a great variety of diseases are so indisputably attested when used at the spring, as those of Neider Seltzer, in Germany, known in England as Seltzer Water, and yet it is equally true that no Mineral Waters have more extensively tailed as a Therapeutic agent when administered in this country. A German philosopher of repute, who had taken great pains t" collect information respecting them, bears testimony to their un- doubted efficacy in all disorders of the kidneys and bladder, in gouty, rheumatic, scorbutic, cutaneou-and putrid disorders, in dyspepsia, consumption, and hypochondriacal and hysterical affections, and (owing to their diuretic properties) in dropsy. Another writer, of scarcely less eminence, pronounces them as of the greatest service in glandular obstructions, as they" render the blood and juices more fluid, promote a free, vigorous, and healthful circulation, and correct viscid humours." Hoffman recommends them as the most safe and gentle of an Mineral Waters. He says they contain none of that bitter purging salt which is a disadvantage in most mineral springs, but act directly on the system and kidneys, whereby they may be used with ad- vantage by persons of the most weakly constitution. The qjuestion arises, how is it that waters which hav been product ve of such unquestionable good in Germany, should fail of their purpose when imported into England I The answer has « been supplied by the researches of Hoffman, Dr. Uroekiesby.and others. The Seltzer waters are more liable to be spoiled b" keeping thart.any other waters,and they seldom or never reach England in anything like good condition. Dr. Brocklesby discovered, as the result of maliy experiments, that they did not depend for the r efficacy so much upon their salts as upon the combination of'those salts with fixed air. He ascertained that the factitious air yielded by a bottle full of the water, containing a oz. 7 drachms, in a heat never exceeding 116 degrees by Farenheit's scale, amounted to a quantity which occupied a space that required 2 oz. 2 j drachms of water to fill it. As the result of several examinations of the Mitt of the Seltzer water, he found that, by the time he came to act upon them, they had let go by much the greatest part of their fixed air, and had thereby probably lost most of the virtues in- herent in the pure fresh water itself; and Ur. Brocklesby cons eluded,as the result of all his researches, that the active virtue of this water depend more on this elastic matter, or fixed air, han on any combination of its saline and earthy contents." It appearing to Messrs. Roughsedge and Summers that the experiments thus instituted with the Waters had solved the problem of their failure in England, and finding the results of the investigation confirmed by the well-known commercial fact that the mere accident of leaving a small space between the cork and the water in a bottle of the imported Seltzer will deprive it of its pungent flavour, they devoted themselves to a study of how a Mineral Water could be produced which should contain, in the exact quantity and proportion,the exact Salts of the Koyal Seltaer Spa,in combination with an equal or greater quantity of that elastic air upon which, in the opinion of the best authorities, Its active virtues depend. They have the satis- faction if announcing that some years of experiment have re- sulted in complete success, and that they can now manufacture a Water which is to the full .extent as medicinally efficacious, as, and even more pleasant than Selt*er Water drunk from the natural spring. The Imperial German Seltzer iVater, Manu- actured by Koughsedge and Summers, will be always found equal in quality, and in perfect condition, while its perfect I dentity, chemically, with the German Water, is attested by the following certificates from W. Herapath, Esq., F.C.S.. C.M.E.S, Professor of Chemistry of the Medical School in this City, and from E. Frankland, Esq., Professor of Chemistry, Owen-Colege Manchester,- Bristol Laboratory, Jan. 28th, 1856. Messrs. Roughsedge and Summers. Gentlemen-I have made comparative analyses of your Seltzer Water, and of that of the lloyal Seltzer Spa of Germany, and find them to be as nearly as possible of the same composition, and consequently 1 have no doubt of their having equal and similar medicinal properties.

Thisinvaluable Medicine has the extraordinary property of immediately relieving coughs, colds, hoarseness, difficulty of breathing, and huskiness in the throat. It operates by dissolving the congealed phlegm, consequently causing a free expectoration Those who are tioubled with that unpleasant tickling in the throat, which deprives them of rest, night after night, by the incessant cou-,h which it provokes, will, by taking one dose, find immediate relief, and one bottle in most cases will effect a cure. Numerous cases have come to the proprietor's knowledge where young people have been troubled with coughs, spitting of blood, and gradual wasting away, with every appearance of goingïnto a decline, by taking a few doses, have been entirely cured. In asthmas, chronic coughs, difficulty of breathing, &c., no pen can describe the wonders that have been performed by this invaluable medicine. Many, who for many years have been unable to lie down in their beds without a danger of being clinked by an accumulation of phlegm (which invariably causes a dread ful cough); others, who with difficulty could breathe at all in a recumbent posture, have, by taking one dose of this excellent balsam, been enabled to lie down comfortably in their beds. But the testimonials of those who have experienced its wonderful effects will do more to recommend and insure it the support of the public, than anything the proprietor can say in its favour, and by particular request he has published the following extraordinary case Mr. Wright, of Mile-end road, was many years afflicted with cough, shortness of breath. and sense of suffocation, whenever he attempted to lie down in bed, owing to the great accumulation of viscid phlegm which he was unable to expectorate. He had tried every means to obtain relief, but without effect; he couid get no sleep but in his arm-chair. In this state he continued to linger, without any hope of recovery, his friends expecting that every fit of coughing would terminate his existence. At length he was prevailed upon to try a bottle of the Balsam, and (very extraordinary) I half an hour after the first dose he was able to lie down in his bed and before he had taken three bottles, was perfectly cured!"
