James pps and Co., manufac- turers of dietetic articles, at their works in Hoiland- street, Blackiriars, London," EPPS'S COCOA.-John Bull says :—" In no branche of industry are recent scientific and chemical disroveries more generally applied than ill those upou which our food supply is so largPly dependent. I'he luxuries of the last generation have in many cases become the daily necessaries of the present. A forci- ble illustration of this is to be found iu the en0rmous increase in the consumption of cocoa ear by year in exact proportion to the incr;a,;e.i' facili ties for its manufacture. An iaea of the vast extent of this industry may be gained from the fact that OOe firm alone-that vf Messrs Epps and CO.-n"w sdl some five millions of pounds annually. The "Homoeopathic Cocoa' of .\[pssrs. Epp has, during the many years it has been before the public, gained g-reat and just repate which its excellent quality and careful prepara- tion certainly eutitle it to, A cocoa in solublp form, and combining what is technically known a fle;h- forming' alld heat-giving properties, is cleany au invaluable addition to our scanty Ii-t of dietetic foods. Such iYlc,;srs. Epps claim for their prep.1 red cocoa, and such analysis, and-most valuable of all-ex- perieuce has proved it to be." EPPS'S COCO A.-Christian World says If I am to take cocoa: said I, I must know what it is made cf; I must examine the proc ss; I m;i-t dive into thp mystpry of its manufacture 1 must see and judge for myelí what are the ingredients of whic!1 it is composed with thi, view I made my way to the manufactory of .iames Epps and Co., in Hol,and- strpe Blackfriars." T?PPS' COCOA.—Naval and Jfilitary C/azette says The nutritive qualiiies of cocoa over either those of tea and coff, e a e now >0 acknow- ledged that the steady increasp shewn by official statistics iu its consumption during recent years, ceaes to be a matter of surprise cine of tin- first firms to popularise this now indispensable adjunct to our breakfast tabl" was :\1es5rs. Epps and Co whose name, since 18 >9, has been -0 continuously before the public, alld whoe Homoeopathic Co.a is as familiar in our homes as the proveibial bousehol words.* Those whose lJuintss it ha- been to wa ch at Messrs. Epps's Works the ebbora, p and comp ex processes, and to note the care and labour be-to .e befor ■ the crude cocoa hea" is considered n-ady for c .nsumption. cannot but admit that the popul 1 ii y M ^-rs. Epp-'s productiolls have secured is fullv deserved. The va?tues» of these works may be imagine ivhen ii is staled that nearly five millions or p und- of pr-pared cocoa alone are prepared there yearly. The repu ation gained, now many years siuce. for Mr. James Epps's preparation, both for iis puri'y and its valu- as a dietetic, has been more thau maintained. A eon- stantly illcrea8JRg aemaud fully testifies to this — which n ut be as gratifying to Messrs Epp", a„s it is certainly flattering to the g-ood faith (hey 11; v,, kept with the public to secure so granting a r "s-ult EPPS'S COCOA.-liforn£ng Advertiser says :— Iu the middle of rhe seven eeutu c?ntarv an announcement appeared in OHe of the Jew journals of that period, to the ellect, that out of Bis}npsgatp.- street, at a Frenchman's house, is an excell.-nt West India drink, citHed en c date, to be sold at reasona ble rat. 8,' '1 his i the first record we have of the introduc- tion of cocoa iuto England.

PPPS'S COCOA. — Family Herald says — "The bpst makers-such as Messrs. Epps-sell ¡I pure preparation." EPPS'S COCOA. Church Review says :— "Although we ennot yet boast of a free br • ik'ast table, still the active legislati III ill furtherane" of that object dUr1n the last h df-century leave us much to be thankful for, A striking inst:1nce of th gcueral goood re,utin from the removal of heavy imposts upon our food supply, i- afforded by'the marvellous increase in th" consump ion of cicoa since 1 S;3, up to which period an almost prohibitive duty wa" levied. In 130 the total amount consumed in this coun ry was less than half a million pounds yparh. At the preseni timc one firm alonp, (hat of :\1 "S5r". James Epps and Co, t-Ie HomcBOpathic Chemists, sell annually nearly fire milliou pounds. EPPS'S COCOA.—Civilian says :—" In the 17th century, before either tea or coffee 21Ud found thpir way into the Enlish markets, cnocolale was a favourite beverage with the luxurhus chisses at that period; it then Iptched an almost fabulous price per pound. To-day, when modern cipnce and enterprise have placed it within the reach of every cla,5, cocoa is n't only still regarded as a palatable and refreshing drink, but is valued for its nutritive and dietetic qualities. One < f the first, we believe, wno may be cre\1ited with introduCÎlI1{ cocoa in its present form is Mr. James Epps. Prepared 011 sound diptetic principles, Epps's Homcepataic Cocoa contains ull the nutritive properties of the native product in such a form that they are rendered thoroughly soluble, aud, therefore illuch mor easy of digestion. The natural superabundance of fat present in raw COC01i is, more. over, not only counteracted but made to serve one ot the most essential functions of sound dit. Messrs. Epps's works are now, perhaps, the larest in the country, the cocoa produced there amounting to many million pounds a year." EPPS'S COCOA.-2JIim'ng World says :—" The preparation of pure and nutritious articles of diet i8, in point of philanthropy, noble work. The wear and tear upon brain and muscle in this age is growing more and more intense, so that without some com- pensating influence the eud must be hopeless col- lapse in individuals and national decay collectively. Fresh air and more wholesome and nutritious diet must be had at any price. Both food and drink need great improvement. A few chemists have don" great public service in this repect. Mr. James Epps, in the preparation of cocoa iu its various forms, has done more, perhaps, than auy other person to supply the tables of even the poorest with a most agrpeahle and wholesome article of diet. The application of modern science at bis extensive works has brought cncoa, once the dear-bought luxury of the higher classes, within the reach of all; aud there may now be found on the labourer's table. cocoa in belter and more nutritious form than the Royal breakfast tables of early kiag8 could bnast. Cocoa, 3.S prepared lJy Mr. Epps. is palatable, refreshing, strengthening, and inestim- ably preferable to the trashy tca and cof* e in general use." PPRANSVAAL. The following interesting -L letter, addressed to the firm of James Epps aod Co., bas just come to hand :—" Gentlemen,-Five years and a half ago I bought in Cape Town a case of your COCOa, and started with my family for this couutry. During five months'travelling we experienced scorch- ing heat, biting cold. Hoods of rains, and frightful droughts; in fact. we passed through all possible atmospheric changes. Almost daily we used for breakfast your cocoa, and sino our settlement here we did the at:1e from time to time, until, a few days ago, we finished the lt of the 420 packets contained in the case 1 have now much pleasure in stating, to your satisfac ion, that we not only found your cocoa mot grateful and comforting fer old and young. but also that the last packet was just as good RDd sound 80S the first, after so many yean' keeping, whilst the producisof other makers showed extreme decay after a few months only. In makia t1ûs statement I 801ely have in view to render full justice to those who deserve it, now that so many adultpratlOus of food are sent out to the colonies by unprincipled firms.
