Tea and Coffee are in no wise foods. In countries where beer is used as a table ucver- age, dyspepsia is practically unknown. So fs stomach trouble in general. Iti Germany beer is more frequent- ly drank lhan at meal time. The prejudice against strong stimulants has in no wise impaired the value of "Aiucriii's Fruit; ilie most nutritious of all liquid foods. This beer, is absolutely pure. This is no idle claim, but one thai we can back up by proof. Come to our Brewery and we will show you. To those who value strong digestive organs we advise "Alberta's Pride Beer" and we recommend it lo convalescents because it is a tonic. THE LETHBRIDGE BREWING MALTING COMPANY, Limited PHONE 554 ;
