Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey is an Ideal Spring Medicine That Never Fails to Put the Blood in Right Condition and to Make Life Worth Living.

Now when the gentle Spring days are here and the seasonable Spring showers are revivifying all nature, and all plant life i is starting to bud forth in glory, many a man and woman does not feel the joyousness which they should at this season. Rather they feel languid. tired, have very little or no appetite, ambition is gone, lack energy, enjoy neither work nor rest. Life in their case at least is largely a burden, a thing to be endured, not to be enjoyed. All this simply means that the system needs toning up, and each and every function of the body needs stimulating and strengthening.

This once accomplished, life again becomes a joy and pleasure. If your system is in need of a blood-cleansing tonic that will start and then keep the whole machinery of the human frame running smoothly and naturally, it is your evident duty to seek out and find some tried, approved and safe remedy that will do the work of cleansing the blood and building up the tissue without at the same leaving any injurious effects. Many physicians preseribe and indorse Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey as an ideal Spring medicine. one that does its work effectively in purifying the blood. in stimulating the heart, in aiding digestion and in adding fresh vigor and life to the entire body.

Large numbers of those who have used Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey are most loud in its praise. It is the only absolute preventive and cure of pneumonia, consumption, grip, bronchitis, asthma, stomach and nervous diseases, malaria and low fevers. If weak and run down, take a teaspoonful four times a day in half a glass of milk or water. BY MAIL PREPAID.
