Temperance Wine for Invalids.
It :s well known that there are cases
when the most strict advocates of tem
perance are obliged to use some sort et
wine, especially those who are old and
infirm. Many weakly females as well
as invalids and debilitated persons in
warm v3:ither need a little strengthen
hi'z wine... The jxreat difficulty has been
in procuring a rich. Port that is reliable.
There are main' casas where wine
would be used to gif.it advantage in
place of alcoholic ("rinks if only a genu
ine article could be had, and upon which
physic:aii3fCOuld rely as being strictly
pure, without alcoholic admixture. The
Port Grape Wine of Alfred Speer, of
Passaic, New Jersey, also his Sambuci
wines have been analyzed by chemists
in nearly every State," and have always
been proved strictly pure and beneficial.
This wine is now being used in hospitals
and by families lor medicinal purposes,
also by Churches for Communion ser
vice. It is -principally sold by Drug
guts. Mr. Speers mode of conducting
the fermentation is .such as to retain the
rich flavor and sweetness of the grape
without much fermentation to create
stimulative properties Transcript.
