_____ d"O~G ■■ g/ -r~— —— TIT ANY years since we had the., pleasure IYI to introduce to the public the BUFFALO MEAT DOGS BISCUITS, now go extensively used in the principal kennels of the world. Sinoe that time we have made many iniportanee improvements in their manufacture —improvements not of the nature of vegetable compounds which may be added to any food of a trifling cost, but of the nature io produce good hard flesh and muscle, ingredients which no other Biscuit or Dog Food ■ possesses, and for which w« have t received numerous medals and high recommendations, amongst which we may mention that of Professor Dj Zurn, who after many careful analysis and experiments pronounced these biscuits to be of the greatest excellence, and to contain double the quantity of nourish-' mentthatisto be found in., the flesh, thus farming the best and most successful food for dags that is possible to produce. It is important to notice that every biscuit is stamped—"Buffalo Meat, Trade Mark," the quality of which we guarantee. Twenty shillings per c wt, carriage paid : SOLE MANUFACTURERS, { W, G.
