Liebig Co.'s Coca Beof Tonio with Citrate of Iron.
Liebig Co.'s Coca Beef Tonic with Iron and Quinine,

In the preparation of our Coca Beef Tonics, Coca Wine, Elixir Coca, Coca Cordial, etc., we use the celebrated Imperial Crown Sherry. We quote in this connection the following cable dispatch, and for proof, should it be desired, we beg to refer to the N. Y. Omice of Messrs. Gonzalez, Byass & Co., 39 Broadway. It will be seen, therefore, that we control absolutely the whole grow. ing of this famous brand, and use it in the manner named in this dispatch.

SPECIAL BY CABLE. JERES, SPAIN.-The representative of the Liebig Company of New York has closed with the celebrated growers, Messrs. Gonzalez, Byass & Co, for their entire growing of Imperial Crown Sherry. This brand has been the recog. nized king of Wines for centuries for those out oi health. The Liebig Company will use it in the preparation of their world renowned Coca Beef Tonics and Coca Wine.

The following combinations of the Coca Beef Tonics are computed on the basis of the tablespoonful or, more strictly speaking, the half ounce. These ingredients are in solution in Imperial Crown Sherry. In addition to these ingredi. cats: each tablespoonsul also represents the essence of an ounce of choice meat.

COCA.-TWO NOTEWORTHY PREPARATIONS OF THE VALUABLE REMEDY. In the practical use of coca are many and serious difficulties. The conditions under which a maximum effect may be obtained are numerous and delicate. The leaves must be grown in certain soils and climates, picked at a certain stage of maturity, and in certain weather. They must be packed in small quantities so as to prevent crushing, heating, mould. ing or decay. In transportation they should be kept in cool, well ventilated places, and as far away from bilge, fumes, gases and vapors as possible. When delivered at their destination, they should be used immediately. The importance of these precautions may be gathered from the fact that out of a thousand pounds of leaves gathered upon the haciendas of Western South America, one-half are from other species of the Erythroxylon, one-eighth are spoiled in the picking, one-eighth in the subsequent transportation and storage, leaving but twenty-five per cent. available for medical and scientific use. Of the coca leaves which reach the United States, the largest proportion is received and con sumed by the Liebig Company of New York, Paris and London, a corporation which offers the remedy in two general forms-viz., Liebig Co.'s Wine of Coca and Liebig Co.'s Coca Beef Tonic. Of these two preparations nothing

can be said but in high praise. Their Wine of Coca is practically an admirable tincture of the leaf. Each fluid ounce contains the virtues of ten grains of erythroxylon. The Wine or menstruum, is worthy of remark, being a rich and pure Spanish sherry imported directly from the great house of Gonzalez, Byass & Co.. in Xeres, Spain. As imperial Crown, this wine has gained a fame superior to that of the Oloroso and the Amontillado of former days. Without the Coca the Wine would be a splendid adjunct to every dining-table or sick room. With the Coca it makes a delicious beverage as well as a medicine, and forms as perfect a preparation of erythroxylon as science and art can produce.

The Coca Beef Tonic consists of Imperial Crown Sherry with ten grains ef coca and the nutritive elements of two ounces of choice beef to the ounce of wine. It is used as a basis for eleven combinations, comprising quinine, citrate of iron; iron and guinine; iron, quinine and strychnine; pepsin; pancreatin; pepsin and pancreatin; calisaya, iron, bismuth and strychnine; iron, quinine, strychnine and pepsin; and calisaya, iron and phosphorus. All of these preparations will be recognized and appreciated by the professional eye.

The Liebig Co. is to be complimented upon the success of its efforts, and upon the intrinsic excellence and value these preparations.-THE AMERICAN ANALYST, Oct. 1886.
