H. Vogel "Spirit of Christmas" Ad

The last Christmas Herman celebrated on earth; this ad was in the Logan Newspaper. 

23 Dec 1897
The Logan City Brewery
Here is the place where you
 secure the modern elixir of life, the
magic tonic which will make you
happy enough to enjoy your
 Christmas dinner thoroughly and
 will give zest to your holiday
 enjoyment. The brewery is owned
 and operated by Mr. Herman Vogel 
and his goods are strictly first class
 in every respect.  Vogel's Best is
proverbial in Logan, and to be
slangy, it is the hot stuff.  
It always strikes the spot and
strikes in just right to make you 
long for more.  It is a beverage
which never intoxicates ---unless
you drink too much and even then
it doesn't leave the hair-pulling 
rocks-in-the-head effects behind
 it which some of the 
other concoctions do
The establishment is located on First St. 
just west of the Central Mill. 
You can purchase it by the keg or bottle, but not
otherwise, except at the saloons, 
where it is a decidedly popular beverage.

I find this amazing and amusing!   Especially comparing his concoctions
 to other's concoctions!
And how about the slang; Hot Stuff!  Certainly gave me burst of laughter!
