It pays to satisfy people at this day and
age. The merchant who sells on the
"satisfaction or money back" plan, and
adheres to it strictly, is seldom heard to
complain of a scarcity of business. The
Kellerstrass Distilling Company of Kansas
City, Mo., has fully wO.Ooo customers, every
one of whom it claims Is satisfied. Their
great success under these conditions is not
bo remarkable after all. Minneapolis

The adulteration of whisky has become
so universal a practice It Is almost lmpos
lhle for the consumer to secure at any
Iirloe whisky that Is absolutely pure. This
s not the fault of the distiller, but the
middle man or retail dealors. The Keller

Mo., In order to Insure its whisky reach
ing the customer in the same pure state
that It leaves ine distillery, nas adopted
the plan of selling and shipping direct to
in customers. That this plan is proving
pcnular Is evidenced by the fact that the
Kellcrstrata Company has grown to be
the largest whisky house in the world.

trade entirely by selling a whisky that is
absolutely pure. This company sells mil
lions of bottles of Its famous whisky every

The wonderful growth of the Kellerstrass
Distilling Company, from a small concern
to the largest mall order whisky house In
the world, demonstrates beyond all doubt
that up-to-date business methods, when

wonderful results. This company, . which

I waot to say just a few words to the people of this country who have use for an absolute pure whiskey
for medicinal purposes. By placing before the people of this country a high-grade whiskey that has never been
equaled, I have now in the neighborhood of 400,000 customers, and I shipped out more bottles of whiskey by ex
press in 1902 than any other one house in America. This it an absolute fact. Kindly read the testimonials in the
column to the left they, will speak for themselves. This is a new record in the whiskey business; in fact, it might
be termed a whirlwind record, but I am not as yet satisfied. I want every person in this -country to have my now
famous Kellerstrass Rfc Whiskey, and in order to do this I am going to make a special offer that has never been
made. I am going to send two gallons of my ten-year-old Kellerstrass Rye Whiskey and four sample bottles, two
glasses and two corkscrews, all express charges paid, on receipt of $5.30. This is giving each one who takes ad
vantage of this order $1.00, for I have always sold this whiskey for $3.19 per' gallon, and I will never again make
this offer; but remember, I will only send one order to a person. In case you feel that you do pot wish two gal
lons yourself, you can get a neighbor to enlist with you. I know that this offer is going 'to bring in an avalanche of
orders, but I love these whirlwind paces, and I can assure you that I will at all times do my part in furnishing the
purest whiskey ever sold from V distiller direct to the consumer. This is the same proposition that I made you last
month, and on account of the many, requests coming from every section of the country, I am going to extend the
time 15 days longer. In my business career I have found that the broad-gauged merchant makes the biggest sue
cess, and although I lose money on every order that I get on this proposition, for any child can easily figure this
out, simply take your pencil and paper and figure the cost of the government tax and the cost of whiskey and you
can easily figure that this proposition is below the actual cost to me. However, through this proposition I have re
ceived thousands of customers, and I am willing, besides selling this whiskey below cost, to spend thousands of
dollars in newspaper space for the purpose of having every one give it a test, knowing full well that my whiskey is
all that I claim for it, and the best and purest to-day on the market, and if you once use it it will supercede in your
household any other brand that you may be using, and it is thro ugh your continued orders that I will realise a profit,
although I lose money on this first order. I place the strongest emphasis upon the fact that I am satisfying my
customers and I cannot prove this stronger than by giving you the actual words of these customers, and therefore
respectfully request that you read their testimonials in the column to the left of this ad. In my last talk I made
the statement to. you that we had shipped by express more bottles of whiskey in 1902 than any other house in
"America.' I am now in a position to state to you that in the month of January of this year we have shipped by ex
press more bottles of whiskey than any one house in America. It stands to reason that our enormous, business is
founded upon the. fact that we have a whiskey that suits the palate and satisfies the stomach. While making this
talk I have a few words of advice to give my many patrons. The spring of the year is coming on it is at this
time of the year that our constitution should be fortified, and every physician will tell you that a good stimulant is
almost necessary to assist nature in strengthening our constitution in such a manner that it will ward off disease.
Especially is this the case in that territory where chills, a gue and fever are prevalent. Now, the basis of all stimu
lants is alcohol, no matter whether it comes under1 the name of a tonic, pick-me-up, etc. Now, from the mere fact
that my whiskey is absolutely pure and has the endorsement for medicinal purposes from the leading physicians of
the country, gives me the privilege to make the statemen t that Kellerstrass Rye used both plain as well as in a
toddy, will do more to ward off disease, invigorate the entire constitution and stand as a guard against chills, ague
ft ana lever tnan any medicine mat you can taxe into tne stomacn. i nave, as you an Know, maae a wonderful record
jl in the whiskey business a record second to none in the world, but I have one ambition, and that is that I want
jj everybody in this country to know what I know, and that is that my whiskey is absolutely pure, and it is my inten-
L tion to give to the public such a whiskey that in time Kellerstrass Rye will be a synonym to pure whiskey. Remem-
U ber, now is the time for you to buy this whiskey, for after the 15-day limit you will be obliged to pay $6 JO for
A what now is being offered. for $5.30. With this offer I know that I am going to make the month of February a red
W letter month in the history of my business. ' ERNEST KELLERSTRASS, President
