millions of people during the last half century, the secret haa

Any firm that will sell imitation goods will sell Impure

goods with the Arm's name on, beware of anything and every

the lives of your family and friends by dealing with them.
Noted Chicago Physician and Chemist
Dr. E. M. Eidherr, after severe and exhaustive tests of
samples of Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey, reports It to be per
fectly pure, free of coloring matter, wood spirits and fusel oil,
and recommends It in all cases for youug and old whera aa
effective tonic is required.
In his original report he says:
"The samples of Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey submitted to my
laboratory for chemical examination were found perfectly pure and en
tirely free of amyl and methyl alchohols (fusel oil and wood spirits),
and also devoid of coloring matter. Comparative tests have been made
with samples of Duffy's Malt Whiskey, bought from different drug
stores in this city, with the same result. On basis of these examina
tions. I pronounce your preparation as an excellent tonlo-stlmulant,
tissue builder and Invlgorator, which can be used by young and old
for wasting diseases, nervous debility, loss of appetite and. In short. In
all cases where an effective tonic is required."

REFUSE IMITATIONS AND SUBSTITUTES
When you ask for
DUFFY'S PURE MALT
WHISKEY be sure you

the only absolutely pure

Farmer Fools Straagers.
PLATTSMOUTH. Neb., Jan. lS.-(Spe.
cial.) Three strangers drove to the home
of a weulthy farmer in Mount Pleasant
precinct, In this county, and one asked
ot the farmer many questions concerning
the number ot his family and their ages.
his crops, the number of cattle, horses.
hogs, sheep nnd agricultural implements
he owned. They Informed him that they
were taking the census for the govern
ment. The shrewd old farmer noticed that
there were two sheets of paper, one under
the other, on which one had written down
the answers to the questions, and he
could not quite understand why It should
require three men to do the work ot one,
so he became fully convinced that they
I were trying to "work" him, and would
kot sign the paper as requested. The
strangers then took their departure. The
farmer, who declined to allow his name
to appear In print, learned that the
strangers did not visit any other farmer In
that neighborhood. One farmer in each
vicinity whose note Is aa good as gold In
any bank was all they cared to visit.
