The front panel has a drawing on the left of a girl in a pink dress with flowers and rabbits representing spring-time. To the right it reads, "An ideal remedy for the restoration of strength, the relief of headache, exhaustion, insomnia, depression, etc., caused by summer heat, nervous disorders or impaired digestion. A teaspoonful of Horsford's Acic Phosphate added to a glass of cold water, with sugar, makes a cooling, refreshing and invigorating tonic."
