NO ALCOHOL. NO DRAGS.
Analysis of Malt Mead made at the
University of Georgia shows that It con
tains almost four per cent. Maltose and
Dextrine, the vial nourishing elemtn of
malted barley, and no alcohol, drugs, nor
hurtfult acids of any kind. Malt Mead
has not been polished up nor fixed to
please the eye and taste and fool the
stomach. It's just the other way. A taste
once acquired for Malt Mead after a fair
trial trill convince you that it Is one drink
now on the market which meets all hu
man requirements and can be used by
young and old without fear of becoming
habituated to it. Lok around you in this
paper and see and learn more of it. Malt
Mead stands as y’et alone in its original
field and as a pioneer points the way as
