SUMMER SEASON 1879 CLARETS FOR EVERY-DAY USE, PURE, WHOLESOME, BEVERAGE WINES OF FRANCE Shipped by W "A Gilbey direct from their Establishment in the Medoc to their Stores in London, and sold by their Agents throughout the United Kingdom i Castle A CLARET Castle B CLARET Castle A CLARET Castle B CLARET Castle C CLARET F Castle D CLARET These four Clarets were bought by W & A\ < I Gilbey on the estates of the Medoc. Although I quoted at such moderate prices they are of F J remarkable quality and value, and are as F < pure and wholesome as the choicest Clarets 1 produced. They are suitable either for use 1 I at meals, diluted with water, or for general 1 I consumption, and have been upwards of wear ] in. bottle. Per Bottla Per Dozen 1/ 12/ 1/3 16/ 7;. 1/6 18/ 2/ 24/ t Bottles charged 11 per dozen, which 18 allowed when returned, W & A Gilbey have accumulated on their estate of Chateau Loudenne, in addition to the produce of the estate, from 1,000 to 10,000 hogsheads of Claret, representing all the various growths of the Medoc district. Chateau Loudenne offers the exceptional advantage of direct communication between the most favored wine-producing districts of France and this country, being situated in the neighbourhood of some of the finest vineyards of the Medoc, on the river Gironde, and between Bordeaux and the sea, so that wines can be shipped almost direct from the various estates without having first to incur the expenses of transport up to Bordeaux, and the charges incidental to landing, storing and re-shipping from thence. The stores erected at Loudenne by W & A Gilbey, with the adjoining buildings, are among the most striking objects on the Gironde, and are of a magnitude and completeness not hitherto attempted in any wine-producing country while by the above arrangements W & A Gilbey have placed the English consumer in a better position than even the inhabitants of Paris, or any of the larger towns of France, for proturing pure, genuine, and moderate-priced Clarets. SPARKLING cc BRUT-SAUMUR 11 CHAMPAGNE FROM FRANCE-FIRST QUALITY FIRST SHIPMENT RECEIVED IN MARCH, 1879 It meets for invalids a want that has long been felt by the medical profession, but which perhaps previously has not been within general grasp, viz., that of a light, pure sparkling, and moderately STIMULATING beverage at a reasonable price. The man in perfect health may drink which he likes'best, without fear of the small quantity of sugar in the ordinary wine; but if he prefers a drier wine, here it is. We will only ADD that the importers of this Sparkling Brut-Saumur are the aame wine merchants who originally introduced the ordinary Sparkling Saumur rnnes into England, viz.—Messrs. W & A Gilbey, of the Pantheon, Oxford Street."—Medical Times 4r Gazette, Marrh 2Q. 1819.

ALEXANDER, THE celebrated American Aurist, at the earnest re- quest of his many friends in Great Britain, has established a Depot for the sale of his far-famed "Virginia Elixir," A sure cure for Deafness and Singing in the Ears, no matter of how long standing. Thousands of Testimo- nials from all parts of the world prove the wonderful efficacy of this Elixir, which has never been known to fail in effecting a cure in a short time. A member of the Malvern Club (who had been as deaf as a post for 15 years) writes to say he was induced upon the advice of a friend to give Mr Alexander's Elixir a trial, which completely cured him in six weeks, after spending hun- dreds of pounds to no purpose in consulting all the cele- brated Aurists in Great Britain and on the Continent. A single bottle (which will prove its value) will be for- warded, free of post, upon receipt of 15 or 29 Stamps.
