A Merfy Christmas and a
Happy New Year to All. 1
This is the happiest season of all the year the Holiday Season. It is the gift season, and in every home U
throughout this great land it will be celebrated. The little ones will be made happy by their toys and candy, the older g
ones will be remembered with more expensive and useful gifts. We shall all be happy and our degree of happiness $
will depend on how happy we make those around us i
We take pleasure at this joyous season in calling your attention to our
Union Brewed Beer, Ale an
The equal of these beverages cannot be found in this or any other country. The greatest care is used in 0
selecting the malt and hops, none but the best that can be procured being used. Our process is conspicuous for skill f
and cleanliness. Our ten large plants arc of the most modern construction and unci r the supervision of cxperi-
enced brewers, who insist upon thorough cleanliness from start to finish.
Our goods enjoy the special favor of the people of the Lackawanna and Wyoming Valleys because they are the 6
products of Home Industry and Union Labor. !U
