HONEST PRODUCTS. Word has been received from tha High Commissioner In London that THOMSON AND GO. have been awarded another GOLD MEDAL for Raspberry "Vinegar, Limejuice, and Ginger Wine at the Festival of Empire and International Exhibition, London. This is not only a great honor conferred upon Thomson and Co., but it reflects upon the Dominion as a whole. This latest addition now brings up {he firm's list of honors to 25 Gold Medals and 31 First Class Certificates, which have been won in Open Competition in all countries against the world. The fact that Messrs Thornson and Co.'s Eshibifc left Dunedin early in 1911 speaks woll for the purity and the keeping qualities of the goods, and also goes to show their all-round superiority in competing against Cordials which are freshly manufactured and bottled on the spot. The Jurors reserved the "right to disqualify any competitor if there was not sufficient merit shown in tho goods, or if the analysis detected lead, copper, metallic, or other contamination, adulteration, or impurities." To make the competition perfectly fair and unbiased, all samples were forwarded with unbranded bottles and corks, plain capsules and wrappers, the judges working by numbers, which wero known to the Directors of the Exhibition only. The system upon which the awards were adjudicated was that of treating each point of merit separately, as follows: 1. Purity s Freedom from metallic contaminations, adulterations, or impurities, 40 points. 2. Appearance In Bottle: Corking, color, brilliancy, and general appearance, 10 points. 3. Opening: Indicating conscientious care in manufacturing, skill in bottling, and freedom from atmospheric air, 10 points. 4. General appearance in glass when poured out, indicating character, etc., 10 points. 5. Taste, bouquet, and general palatability, indicating extensive experience in manufacturing, blending, elegance, aroma, including purity, pungency, anl crispness, 20 points.
