The accompanying advertising copy specified:
Such as BEERS, SODAS, MINERALS, and APOLLINARIS BOTTLES, which we make in GREEN, RUBY, IMPORTED GREEN, and FLINT COLORS. We manufacture bottles for the Bottle Seal, also for the Lightning and Hutchinson Stoppers, and will furnish bottles and stoppers at regular prices. We use NATURAL GAS in all departments, which enables us to anneal the ware better and more uniform than where the old system of coal is used. We have a large selection of Stock Moulds, which are provided with plain plates, upon which we can insert your name and address at a very slight cost, thus saving you the cost of a mould. We have railroad connections at our works with all the principal roads in the country, which enables us to make prompt shipments at all times…

Nothing but beer and soda water bottles are made in this plant, and the quantity of the ware is of the best. Natural gas, as fuel, is used throughout the plant, and its use accounts for the high degree of perfection reached in tempering or annealing its bottles.
