PROSPECTUS: This Company is formed to take over and carry on an established and extensive Mineral Water Manufactory, situated in Holywell, North Wales, together with plant, machinery, and all the necessary appurtenances for the successful and profitable pro- secution of this business in all its branches. Of late an enormously increased demand has sprung up for high-class non-alcoholic beverages, and as much depends on the nature of the water from which such beverages are manufactured, this property is eminently calculated to maintain and extend the good reputation it already enjoys for the excellence of its products, the water used being that obtained from the Holy Well, at Holywell, North Wales, and which is admitted by scientific opinion to be the equal of, or superior to any other spring in the principality. Owing to the increasing demand above referred to, an increase in the Stock-in-Trade is necessitated, and also additions to machinery, involving a small outlay of capital. The property, which is leasehold for 21 years, renewable at expiration, has been obtained on most advantageous terms, and the vendor retains a con- siderable interest in the concern. The purchase consideration for the Good Will, Stock, Horses, Carts, Machinery, Lease, Cases, Hampers, Bottles, etc., on the premises and in customers' hands is One Thousand and Fifty Pounds. Besides the trade already established, steps have been taken to insure a large connection in Liverpool, Manchester, Chester, and other populous centres. The Company's manufactures include Lemonade, Ginger Ale, Soda, Potass, Seltzer, Lithia,Waters, and Cordials. The only contract entered into is one dated November 24th, 1883, between R. JONES (the Vendor) and P. M. EVANS and R. J. WILLIAMS, acting for and on behalf of the Company. Applications for shares on the form herewith will be received by the Bankers and Secretary of the Company. Prospectuses and application forms can be obtained from the Bankers, and Solicitors, and Copy of the Contract can be seen at the Registered Office of the CompamW. ESTABLISHED 1840.
