manufactured on his premises and which bears the familiar registered trade mark “Bound to Rise.” Its history dates back to 1874 in which year Mr. Hudson manufactured his first batch of baking powder, since which time it has retained its premier position. This is a wonderful record considering the many importations of foreign articles that have been introduced into local markets, but all have failed to oust the page 291 “Balloon Brand” from the front rank. Its name is a household word throughout the whole of the province and the islands. The proprietor challenges any analysis to prove that there is any foreign substance such as starch, rice-flour, etc., to be found in his powder, as is too often the case with other baking powders. The chemicals used in its composition, after being thoroughly tested so as to ensure correct strength, are weighed out in their correct proportions, the secret of which is known to the manufacturer alone. They are then put into a most perfect mixing machine and thoroughly amalgamated, so that each sample, however small, contains the chemical elements in equal proportions.

Jefferson, John Mitchell, Chemist, Upper Symonds Street and corner of Newton Road, Auckland, and Manukau Road, Newmarket. Bankers, Union Bank of Australia. Telephone 584.

Bell and Co., Hastings, and Headland and Co., Brighton. Mr. Jefferson also conducted a successful business on his own account in the Old Country. On his arrival in New Zealand he began business as a pharmaceutical and homœpathic chemist. He is an associate of the Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, and a skilful dispenser, and as he makes direct importations of all the requisites of his business, his patrons have complete guarantees of the quality and freshness of all medicines obtained at his dispensary. Mr. Jefferson is the maker of Jefferson's Barberry Bitters, Pectoral Balsam Children's Cough Mixture, Petroleum Emulsion, Cod Liver Oil Emulsion, Nursery Han Lotion, Eucalyptus White Oils, and a number of other well-known remedies. He also manufactures “Neurol,” which is the registered title of a new remedy for headache and neuralgia, influenza or la grippe, colds, and feverishness. “Neurol” is almost tasteless and is said to contain no preparations of opium or morphia.
