AT INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITIONS MALTINE 18 superior in nutritive and diastatic value to any Malt Extract manufactured in the world. There Do reconstructive that excels Maltine in Phthisis and many wasting diseases.

MALTINE, In its different forms, is the only Malt Preparation we now employ, being so palatable, digestible, and easily assimilated. Of its efficiency in appropriate cases, there is no more doubt in our minds than there is of the curative power of Quinine, Cod-Liver Oil, the Bromides, and the Iodides.

It deserves to stand in the front rank of constructives; and the constructives, by their preventive, corrective and curative power, are probably the most widely useful therapeutical agents that we possess.


MALTINE Is a valuable food, a food of priceless value at times of emergency. In fact, in very grave gastric cases It is a food which may often be resorted to when at one's wits end what to do.


Out of 14 trade samples of Malt Extract examined by Messrs. Dunstan & Dimmock, only three possessed the power of Acting on starch. These brands were MALTINE, Corbyn, Stacey & Co.'s Extract, and Keppler's Malt Extract.


I have subjected "Maltine” and “Trommer's Extract of Malt” to an exact quantitative comparison or their diastatio activity.

The results demunstrated conclusively the far greater diastatic value of Maltine, and enable me to state, without any quallfication whatever, that it far exceeds in diastatic power any of the six preparations of Malt which

I have examined.
Professor of Physiological Chemistry in Yale College.

At the International Health Exhibition held in London, England, the only gold medal and the highest award of merit were given to Maltine by a jury composed of the best chemists in Europe ; and recent analyser made by the most reliable authorities in Europe and America prove conclusively that Maltine-in nutritive and diastatic value—is superior to all other Malt preparations now in the market.

NOTE.-Physicians will observe that Maltine, as now prepared, is not so viscid as formerly made being of a more fluid consistency; and, while retaining the nutritive and diastatic value, which has given it precedence ovel an other Extracts of Malt, it is rendered entirely agreeable to the taste of the most fastidious, and is more easily administered. As now prepared we positively guarantee that Maltine will nnt ferment or congeal in any climate or at any season of the year.

The Acutely Ill. When a patient is acutely ill, the digestive powers share in the general condition, and consequently the food supplied should be of the most easily assimilable character. The predigestion of starchy matters outside the body, as in Mellin's Food, is necessary, and the soluble carbohydrates of which this food consists, soluble because predigested, form the true food of the acutely ill.— J. Milner FOTHERGILL, M.D., Edin. A sample of Mellin's Food will be sent to any physician, free of expense,.

(MPERIAL GRANUM, W. C. WILE, M. D., in the New England Medical Monthly, January, 1888—"In

the delicate conditions of the stomach, when every thing else has been rejected I have saved many

lives by giving IMPERIAL GRANUM. I consider this as one of the very best foods the physician can find to assist him in carrying through his patient to recovery; and I have found it of inestimable value in the later stages of Phthisis, Gastritis, Gastric Catarrh, Dyspepsia and Dysentery. It requires little effort of the stomach to digest, and I have never known it to be rejected if properly prepared, given in small quantities and at frequent intervals. The great care used in its manufacture will lead the physician to expect the same product all the time, and we can assure him that he will never be disappointed, as we have fully tested it in our extended experience."

We speak from experience when we say that the IMPERIAL GRANUM is both safe and nutritious. It has been on the market for many years, and the largely increasing sales show that many others have found like results attending its use.- - The Christian Union, N. Y.

As a Medicinal Food IMPERIAL GRANUM, which is simply a solid extract from very superior growths of wheat, is unexcelled. It is easy of digestion, is not constipating, and is to-day the STANDARD DIETETIC preparation for invalids, for the aged, and for the very young.–North American Journal of Homeopathy, N. Y., Dec.,

'87. IMPERIAL GRANUM has now been before the public for many years, and is generally admitted to be a standard preparation. There can be no doubt that this is due to its uniformly superior quality, and the successful results obtained with it in all cases where an artificial food is required.—Popular Science News, Boston, February, '88.

"IMPERIAL GRANUM.—A neighbor's child being very low, reduced, in fact, to a mere baby skeleton from want of nourishment, as nothing could be found which the child could retain, at the urgent request of friends the parents were induced to try IMPERIAL GRANUM, which proved such a benefit to the child it grew and thrived beyond all comprehension. At the same time I had a child sick with cholera infantum; on being presented with a box of Granum, with the high recommend from this neighbor, used it and continued its use to raise the child on, and I firmly believe this had all to do in saving the former child's life and the greater part in restoring my own child to health. A. C. G.”—Leonard's Ilustrated Medical Journal, Detroit, Mich., Oct. '87.

> P. VARNUM MOTT, M. D., Boston, Mass., in the Microcosm, New York, February, 1886.—"There are numerous Foods that are much vaunted, and all have their adherents. The 'IMPERIAL GRANUM,' in my hands, seems to be all that is claimed for it, and experience has brought me to rely on its use where its special properties are indicated. In infantile diseases it has proved very efficacious, and I always direct its use when a child is being weaned."

The lives of untold thousands of infants have been saved by IMPERIAL GRANUM, and careful mothers are loud in their praises of this well known food, and pharmacists con safely recommend its — Proceedings Ilinois Pharmaceutal Association, 1887.

That standard preparation for Infants and Invalids, "IMPERIAL GRANUM," is steadily moving forward as the years roll by, winning hosts of friends wherever its merits become known. We have been familiar with it for many years, having known several instances where babies have been brought up entirely on it, whose healthy condition is the best possible recommendation of its practical benefits. — The Cottage Hearth, Boston, Mass.

“On some other Planet there may be a better Dietetic Preparation than IMPERIAL GRANUM, but not on this."— The American Analyst, New York.
