Being first of the kind manufactured in the United Kingdom and France, it is in both countries not only the original, but indisputably the only article of the kind which, by its own merit and the simple publicity of its uses, has been adopted by the best families as an invariable table delicacy. It is prepared by a process to which long experience has given the greatest perfection, and from Maize carefully selected from the choicest crops. These advantages are so appreciable that its quality has by comparison been preferred to all others, and pronounced by the “ Lancet" (July 24, 1858) “ Superior to anything of the kind known."

The “Illustrated London News,” May 26, 1860, gave a detailed notice of it, with several engravings of the process of manufacture. The most interesting account of its value, as an article of daily use, is given in the “ Leisure Hour," of May 30, 1861, in a Paper upon " Maize or Indian Corn," from which the following is an extract: "There can be no doubt that the amylaceous material prepared and sold by them has all the advantages which they claim for it, under the name of Patent Corn Flour.” Dr. Lankester, F.R.S., F.L.S., refers to it in terms of the highest praise in his Lectures delivered at the South Kensington Museum, “On Food,” (Hardwicke, 192, Piccadilly, pp. 71-80).

Recipes from the Cook's Guide" (Published by Mr. Bentley, New Burlington Street, W.), by C. E. Francatelli, late Chief Cook to Her Majesty the Queen :-INFANTS' FOOD To one dessert-spoonful of BROWN & Polson, mixed with a wineglassful of cold water, add half-a-pint of boiling water ; stir over the fire for five minutes ; sweeten lightly, and feed the baby ; but if the infant is being brought up by hand, this food should then be mixed with milk-not otherwise, as the use of two different milks would be injurious.

Families who have other kinds sent or recommended instead of BROWN & POLSON'S will find that there is extra profit upon the sale of every article thus substituted, and to support this practice the most fraudulent announcements are issued by makers who try to obtain a sale for inferior qualities.

Many Grocers, Chemists, etc., who supply the best-quality in preference to best-profit articles, sell none but BROWN & Polson'.

Dr. Cornwell's Educational Works.

“ Dr. Cornwell ranks among our very best editors, of educational treatises. We have for many years used his English School Grammar, his Young Composer, and his School Geography, as text-books; and can testify, from daily experience, that, in practical utility to private students, and in perfect adaption to the purposes of public instruction, they cannot be surpassed. The four latest contributions to the editor's educational series fully maintain bis high reputation. The Geography for Beginners furnishes an admirable initia. tion into the author's more elaborate manual of School Geography; the Map Book for Beginners is equal, in point of execution, to any atlas of its size we have seen; while the Book of Blank Maps, and the Book of Map Projections, at once suggest and supply the true and only data for the rational and effective teaching of Geography. On the whole we can, with the utmost confidence, recommend these and the other works of Dr. Cornwell to all who are engaged in the education of youth.”-Macphail's Literary Review.
