Chateau Loudenne offers the exceptional advantage of direct communication between the most favored wine-producing districts of France and th; s 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 procuring pure, genuine, and moderate-priced Clarets. SPARKLING BRUT-SAUMUR 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 same wine merchants who originally introduced the ordinary Sparkling Saumur Wines into England, va-Messr*.

FORD CHEMIST 4- OPTICIAN GEORGE ST., BEGS to inform those troubled with defective vision JD -that he has been appointed Sole Agent for Ponty- pool for HENRY LAURANCE'S IMPROVED SPECTACLES. These Spectacles are clear and cool, never tire the eye, and, whilst subduing all inflammatory symptoms, assist, strengthen, and preserve the sight. Hundreds of testimonials have been received testifying to the efficacy of these Spectacles, which have proved, in many cases, beneficial when all others have failed. Sir JULIUS BENEDICT, 2, Manchester Square, London, W.' writes: I have tried the principal opticians in London with* out success, but your spectacles suit me admirably, both for reading and walking. The clearness of your glasses, as com- pared with others, is really surprising. I shall at all times re- commend them." The Ven. Archdeacon FALKEK, 17, Victoria-square, Clifton, writes: Henry Laurance's Spectacles are better than any I have had, «*p«oiaJljr for reading at nieht." C. B. RADCMFF, Eeq., M.D., 25, Cavendish-square, London, W., Consulting Physician to the Westminster Hospital, writes "Your Spectacles are highly appreciated by me, and are a great mprovement on my old ones, and suit my sight better."
