CROSSIfIG THE POflD
EFFORTS TO RE-UTE THE TIME
COXSIMED IN TRANSATLANTIC
RACING OVER THE OCEAN.
CONTESTS IN WHICH COMPETING
LINES HAVE BROKEN
ST. PAUL NOW THE CHAMPION

Whenever the record Is broken ln
crossing the Atlantic ocean there must
surely be a flutter in the hearts of the
commanders and a determination to
do still better. No ship has been allow
ed to hold fast to the record for a
longer time than a year or two, so
perhaps the good ship St. Paul will
have shortly to look to her laurels.
Very like to "race horses and race tracks
are the fast ships and the trans-At
lantic routes. While the noise of the
winning of the Futurity by Ogden is
still in our ears, so, too, is the tooting
of the whistles announcing to the World
that the American steamship St. Paul
has won her Futurity, the race of her
young life, for this passageway between
New York and London, sometimes via
Southampton and sometimes via Queen
•town, is as much of a race course as
is the track on Long island or else
The first ship to look over the ground
to see what the possibilities there might
be was the United States steamer Sa
vannah, in 1819. She was twenty-five
days in going from Savannah to
Liverpool. The good work she did was
to show the way. In 1836 the first en
tries for the race across the western
ocean were made; the racers -were the
Great Western, 212 feet long and of j
1,340 tons burden, and the Sirius, 170 '
feet long and 770 tons burden. Both
WON BY THE GREAT WESTERN.
The race was a handicap, the larger
ship sailing from Bristol three days
after the Sirius had taken her depart
ure from Cork. The Great Western
wen, steaming over a distance of 3,125
miles in fifteen days, at an average
rate of speed of 8.2 knots. The next
year the British Queen, of 2,000 tons,
lowered the record a trifle, but on the
whole the Great Western was the mis
tress of the seas, v.-inning races and
money. To win today requires a speed
of more than twenty-one knots and a
6ize of 10,000 tons. Then the horse
power was about 500; now it is about I
The year 1840 was a memorable one j
in the history of the trans-Atlantic race j
track, for in that year there was or- I
ganized in England the Cunard com- !
pany, for the purpose of running a sche
duled line of steamers for the transpor- j
tation of mails, merchandise and pas- :
congers between Great Britain and the !
United States. The first ship this com- j
pany entered in the ocean race was the
Britannia, of 1,155 tons. She beat the
Great Western by nearly a day. mak
ing the run to Boston in a trifle over
fourteen day*-* and a half, at an aver
age speed of 8.5 knots.
To win back their prestige the Great
Western people entered a new ship, the
Great Britain. She was a novelty foi

made the trip from Liverpool to New
_ ork in about fourteen and a half
days, and clearly beat the Cunard side
wheeler Britannia. But this company
was not to be outdone, and according
ly entered into the running with tht
liibernia, another modern side wheeler,
like the Britannia, but 800 tons larger.
Her speed was nine and a half knots.
This enabled her to hold her own,
though not to beat, until 1846, when the
Great Britain went on the rocks, and
there were left for the time being no
The Cunard, receiving a subsidy from
the English government for running
regular weekly steamers, could well
r.fford to defy competition. However.
the line improved its service greatly,
adding four new 1,820-ton paddle
steamers to Its fleet. One of these, the
America, is reported to have made the
race across against time, and to have
smashed the record" by doing the dis
tance in less than eleven days."
A notable event at this time was the
organization in the United States of
the Collins line, under the stimulus of
i handsome subsidy from the United
States government. This was the first
and, until the organization of the
American or International line, as it is
called, the only important American
rival which foreign corporations have
encountered in trans-Atlantic steam
navigation. The ships of the Collins
line were a new departure in model
and arrangement, and .exceeded in
speed and size anything then afloat.
Ther? followed lively times while
these rival subsidized mail steamships
were for eighteen years doing their best
to win the race across the ocean from
one another. In the beginnnng the
steamers were pretty evenly matched,
the two new Cunarders being of near
ly 2,800 tons, as against the American
Fhlp of 2,800 tons. All were side wheel
ers. In 1851 a Collins ship, the Arctic,
called the Clipper of the Seas, gained a
victory of several hours over the Cu
narders by running over the course
from New York to Liverpool in less
than ten days; and in the year follow
ing, 1852, she crossed in nine days and
But although disaster attacked the
Collins line, it still kept in the running,
and with the Adriatic carried the stars
and stripes in the lead until the Cunard
came to the front with a big new ship,
the Persia, of 3,700 tons. On four differ
ent occasions the Persia broke the rec
ord by making passages across in less
than nine days and a half. The Col
lins people were beaten and retired
from the field.
Almost simultaneously with the inau
guration of the Collins line was the es
i '.ablisnment of the Inman line, to ply
I between Liverpool and Philadelphia.
Other lines soon came on. In 1855 the
Anchor line was started, and the year
following there came along the Ham
burg-American, the North German
Lloyd and a French line to Havre. All
these lines were more or less on the
track, except the Inman, though dis
tanced by the Cunard. For the year
1556 their times were as follows

SCREW STEAMERS TO THE FORE.
In 1862 the Cunard put forward its
first screw liner, the China, of 2 500
j ten?. To wrest the laurels from the
fast-going Scotia and to meet and
beat the China, the Inmans put on the
[ track some new 2,700 tons screw ships
I but they could not overhaul the old
war horse. Until 1864 the Scotia car
ried the broom at her masthead for
she had literally swept the sea track
clear of all competitors.
The year 1864 was an important one
: in the story of the ocean race track
I Then it was that the Inman company
I entered for the race the City of Paris
; and the City of New York, fine ships,
j of about one-third the size of their
1 most distinguished namesake, of the
present day. These were the first ships
over the course to be fitted with com
pound engines, and with them they
scooped nearly as enviable a record as
their modern descendants.
Opposed to them were the most fa
mous of the Cunard ships, the Scotia
and the Persia. For those days this
was a battle of giants, and the con
test was fast and furious. Eight days
and fourteen hours, eight days and
twelve hours and eight days and elev
en hours were some of the times made
by the racers as they tore along over
the course, sometimes the Cunard
ships in the lead, at others the Inman.
Finally the veteran of the lot. the
weather-beaten Scotia, carried the
Cunard colors to victory in a fair and
square run to Queenstown in eight
days seven hours and ten minutes, as
against the City of Paris' time of eight
days sixteen hours and forty minutes.
This was the record for 1866.
In 1867 the Cunarders put on the
course a new ship, the Russia, a screw
vessel of about 3,000 tons, and the
Scotia was taken off. The Russia was
put in direct competition with the In
man City of Paris, and many a fine
and well-remembered race was the
consequence. At the close of the year
the City of Paris came in the victor
j by more than a good length, making
i a new record of eight days and four
I hours from Roche's point to Sandy
The rival owners in 1869 started the
i running of new ships of an increased
! size, the crack of the Inman fleet
reaching a tonnage of 5.500 in the City
lof Berlin. With this ship they again
! lowered the record, this time to seven
and three-quarter days, and held on
to this until there appeared in the
field a new contestant — the now* famil
iar White Star line. In the White
Star line ships there was observed one
of the distinctive features of the pres
ent greyhound — extreme length as
compared with the breadth.
The White Star established a new
form, style and Interior arrangement
which have been largely followed and.
!of course, improved upon. Their rac
i ers were the Germanic and the Brit
j annie, of 468 feet length, 45 feet beam.
j 5,000 tons burden and 5,000 horse pow
er. These two racers outdid all com-
I petitors by crossing from Queenstown
to New York in seven days and eleven
hours, and for several years they held
The year 1879 saw some changes.
The Cunarders again came into the
race, this time with the screw steamer
Gallia. Another newcomer was the
Arizona, the property of the Gulon
line, which broke the record, lowering
the time over the course to seven days
and eight hours.
There were three owners with entries
j for the season of 1881— the Cunard, In-
I man and Guion. The cracks entered
! were the Servia, by the Cunard; the
I Alaska of 7,000 tons, by the Guion, and
j the City of Rome, of 8,100 tons, by the
j Inman. The Alaska won; time, six
days and twenty-one hours. The Servia
was a good second.
The year 1883 found no change, ex
cept that the Servia dropped to third
i place. The winner ln the races of 1884
j was another Guion ship, the Oregon,
but she found a worthy antagonist in
the Amerioa of the National line, a
newcomer that soon retired. The Ore
gon made the record this year of six
days and ten hours.
FAST TIME MADE.
In 1885 the Cunard again forged to
the front with the Etruria and the Um
bria, and easily kept there. The record
was lowered to six days two hours.
On one of the days of this quickest of
passages the Etruria averaged a rate
of speed exceeding twenty knots.
The year ISB9 saw a return to a cer
tain extent to the old order of things,
for once again was the Cunard indis
putably in the lead, and again did the
Inman; as of old, contest its supremacy,
and, in the end, successfully. Now it
was that the new twin screw ships, the
City of New York and the City of Paris,
came up-on the track. After a hard
and close finish they won, but only to
be challenged by the White Star new
flyers, the Majestic and the Teutonic.
The year 1890 witnessed a great time
upon the trans- AUa__tio raoo track.
THE SAINT PAUL GLOBE: IMONDAY, NOVKMBKR 1«, I*9B.
Four twin screw monster ships were
pitted against one another. Two of
them were the Inman ships, City of
Paris and City of New York, and the
other two— the Teutonic and the Ma
jestic— belonging to the White Star.
These four ships began their racing in
February, of 1890. The Teutonic won
for a time ln five days, eighteen hours
and twenty-eight minutes, a time
which some of the onlookers were dis
posed to question, but she won the race.
For 1891 the Majestic, a sister ship,
passed under the wire about two hours
later, but still won the race for that
year. In 1892 the Inman put its steam
er City of Paris over the course ln
about five days and fifteen hours.
Then the Cunard came, as of old, into
the running to win races, and with the
Lucanla and Campania, bigger and
more powerfully englned than any
other ship in the world, scored many
triumphs, lowering the record in 1893
to five days and twelve hours, and in
1894 to about five days and eight hours.
This time stands today as the best
over the track from the Sandy Hook
lightship to Roche's point.
HELD BY THE AMERICANS.
Over the other route— the one to
Southampton— the record is held by the
American liner St. Paul, a fraction over
six days. This route was traversed in
1894 by the New York of the same line
ln six days and seven hours. This was
after the Inman line had become the
American line, or, to be more correct,
the International line. When the line
changed Its name the Paris and the
New York hauled down the red ensign
of St. George and hoisted the stars and
stripes, and the keels of the St. Paul
and the St. Louis were laid. Both these
American racers have won.
The contestants over this course are
the Hamburg-American, running to
Plymouth now, and the German Lloyds.
In 1893 the Fuerst Bismarck of the
former line made the running across
from Sandy Hook In six days and
No other ship has thus far been able
to be even classed in the running with
the new American steamers. Even the
old champions of the Queenstown
route, the English built Paris and New
York, have had to dip their colors to
the American St. Louis and St. Paul.
HARMONY OF NIAGARA FALLS.
There Is Music and Rhythm In the
Roar of the Great Cataract.
Eugene Thayer, the well-known or
ganist, says the Trinity Record, has
published an analysis of the music of
Niagara Falls. He says:
"It has ever been my belief that Ni
agara had not been heard as it should
be, and in this belief I turned my
steps hitherward. What did I hear?
The roar of Niagara? I heard nothing
but the perfectly constructed musical
tone, clear, definite and -unapproach
able in its majestic perfection, a com
plete series of tones, all uniting ln one
grand and noble unison, as in the or
Mr. Thayer then describes at some
length the compound nature of a given
tone, and illustrates the overtones or
partials of the lowest C of the thirty
two-foot pipe of the organ. Then he
"I had long had a suspicion that I
should hear all this at Niagara when
her wonderful voice should first greet
my ears. It was just as I had sup
posed. How should I prove all this?
My first step was to visit the beautiful
Iris island, otherwise known as Goat
island. My next step was to stand on
Luna island, above the central fall, and
on the west side of the American fall
proper. I went on the extreme eastern
side of the island in order to get the !
full force of the larger fall, and sat |
among the rapids. Next I went to the
Three Sisters island.
"With more or less variation of |
pitch at these and many other points, i
I heard everywhere the notes of the j
chord of G, only four octaves lower.
"I arrive at my conclusions both j
theoretically and practically. Let me j
first call attention to the third and I
fourth notes, D and G*
"The ground note, G, was so deep, I
so grand, so mighty, that I never could j
realize it. or take it into my thought or i
hearing, but these two tones, only four
octaves lower, were everywhere, with j
a power which made itself felt as well
"But, it will be replied, these two
notes were too low to be detected by i
the sense of hearing. How did I de- j
t ermine their pitch?
"I first caught the harmonic notes j
above them that were definite in pitch,
and then, counting the number of vi
brations of these lower two notes, j
easily determined their distance below.
"And here comes a curious feature
which proves that Niagara gives a tone
and not a roar. The seventh note, the
interval of the tenth, was of a power
and clearness entirely out of proportion
to the harmonics as usually heard in
"Were the tone of Niagara a mere
noise this seventh note would be either
weak or confusad or absent altogether.
"What is Niagara's rhythm? Its
beat is just once per second."
GIVING PHYSIC BY SUGGESTION.
Interesting; Experiments ln Medicine
That May Produce Great Results).
Dr. Luys, a member of the French
Academy of Medicine, expects startling
results from a series of experiments
which he claims to have carried to a
successful conclusion. The doctor be
lieves that it is possible to administer
drugs without compelling the patient
to swallow them, says the Baltimore
Sun. In brief, he contends that by
throwing the subject into a hypnotic
state the medical influence of the drugs
may be injected Into his system by
merely presenting the dose, in a glass
tube, near his eye, his ear. or his neck.
One peculiar feature of the doctor's ex
periments is the fact that the drug has
a different effect when held on opposite
sides of the subject's head. For In
stance, pepper presented on the right
side caused an expression of pleasure,
but when presented on the left side
the subject showed anxiety and worry.
Equally different effects were noted
when sulphate of morphine, heliotrope,
fennel, ipecac and pure water were ap
This confirms, so the doctor says, the
theory of Charcot, that there is some
magnetic difference between the right
and left side of a person under hyp
notic control. If Dr. Luys succeeds in
administering drugs by hypnotic sug
gestion, it is possible that the days of
the "learned apothecary" are num
bered. Humanity will no longer be
compelled to swallow the pills and
mixtures of the druggist, but will be
able to get relief from a small quan
tity of the remedy introduced into the
anatomy only by suggestion. The doc
tor notes that when a tube of pure
water was held at the right side of a
hypnotized patient's head it was fol
lowed by "horrified shrinkings and
convulsions." When it was presented
on the left side the expression of the
subject's face indicated a most agree
able sensation. There Is a wide and
singularly useful application of pure
water which may be made in the case
of those festive gentlemen who find
their joy in the "flowing bowl" with
disastrous consequences next morning.
The bibulously inclined subject would
"make a night of it" off a tube of water
held to the left side of the face, and on
the morrow he could complete the illu
sion by applying it to the right side
and getting the jim-jams. Then he
coula recover and renew the jag ad
libitum. Dr. Luys may turn out to be
a great reformer.
Only Wants st Chance.
A Chicago burglar said to Sheriff Pease
the other day: "I've cracked more than
seventy safes in my time. But I've never
used anything except powder, dynamite and
nitroglycerin. If I live to finish this bit at
Jollet, I'll do a little work afterward that
will astonish the boys. I can cut through
almost any safe In Chicago inside of two
hours with electricity, and without making
enough noise to waken a cat. I got that
pointer from the electrical display at the
world's fair, and I've been working at it
ever since. It is entirely feasible. I'll prove
it to you by and by."
"Mrs. Col.tciitheroe." And with the
utterance of those words the brown
eyes seemed to laugh at their own re
flection in the mirror, and as the pret
tily curved _rps parted they showed the
perfect teeth: "Do I look it, John? Do
I? For I a_n intensely anxious as to

shook his head with a smile.

It was rather a romantic little story,
as things go in these prosaic times, j
that story of how Rose Dysart became !
Mrs. Col. Clitheroe when she was
eighteen and he was forty-six.
Rose declared that she had been in
love with him all her life. Certainly
at two years old she had been in the
habit of assuring him, "Rosie'll marry
you when she's big," whereupon he al
ways answered: "All right, little wo
man, I'll wait for you."
The child's passionate devotion to
the handsome officer was quite an
amusement to her parents. But when '
his regiment was ordered. off to India, i
and»they saw the little face grow white I
and thin, and heard her heartbroken i
sobs, they laughed no longer. Even !
after she ceased to cry for "Rosie's ;

The pretty baby had grown to a tall, !
slim girl of thirteen when these two i
friends met again. By that time Rose !
Dysart was a pupil at a small and ''

"She will certainly marry young,"
said elderly people, but it never oc
curred to any of them to suppose that
this sunny-faced Rose Dysart would
refuse three eligible men because she
loved a middle-aged colonel.
Like many other parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Dysart seemed to regard their
daughter as little more than a child.
They scarcely realized that others
viewed her differently.

will go away from us."
Rose shook her head.
"I can't think so, mother. However, let
us talk on some more Interesting subject—
of my being presented, for instance. Can
you picture me, colonel, making my courtesy
and kissing the hand of royalty? I hope I
shan't turn awkward and shy at the last
moment. I ought not, for as a little girl, with
a cunterpane ln place of a train, I have
practiced my manner over and over attain."
They all laughed.
"No, I scarcely think you will be shy,"
said Col. Clitheroe. "Besides, the moment
makes the man, they say— so, of course, It
makes the woman."
The Important day came. Rose Dysart
was simply, yet elegantly, dressed, and her
fresh young face won its fair share of notice
as she waited among the crowd of debu
Then followed six weeks of gayety; con
certs, opera, dances, garden parties, riding
in the Row; nevertheless the girl was glad
when her father decided to return to the
country before midsummer.
Everything seemed beautiful and endeared
by absence. The trees had exchanged their
first freshness of tender green for the ripe
ness of summer beauty; the hawthorn and
bluebells were over and done with, but the
foliage of the woods seemed lovely by con
trast with Hyde park.
Col. Clitheroe was to be one of the after
season guests at the Dysarts' country house:
he followed them within a fortnight of the
departure from Eton place.
Was anything troubling him? Was he un
well? Those were the questions they asked
him, for he did not seem so cheerful as
usual, and he was apt to drop into fits of
musing, so that even the voice of Rose made
him start as one does who returns suddenly
from the land of dreams to realty.
The fact was that he had promised to exe
cute a commission which was distasteful to
"Colonel." a bright-faced guardsman had
said to him one day, "I'll tell you a secret.
I am in love with Rose Dysart, and I shall
never care for another girl. Now, you and
my father were boys together, and you are
the oldest friend I possess in the world. Say
a good word for me, will you? She thinks
you infallible on every point; she has told
me herself that there is no one like you."
Colonel Clitheroe worked vigorously at a
tuft of grass with the toe of his boot for some
moments before answering.
"Have you spoken for yourself?" he sud
"Not in plain words. Every time I try and
get round to the point, there seems a diffi
culty, but I would try my luck again and
again if I thought I might win Rose In the
end. Speak for me, won't you, colonel?"
"If a favorable moment comes, but I done
sea what my recommendation can do for
"Hasn't she known you all her life, and
doesn't she think you worth any number of
young fellows put together?" said Rawdon.
"The chief subject of conversation when we
dance or when we sit out together seems to
be the perfections of Col. Clitehroe, and
I ye had to tell her all I could think of about
you when the regiment was out in India
After exhausting facts I try fiction, seeing
that it Is the only way to win a smile " and
the young fellow laughed.
The gray-haired man of six-and-forty was
thinking over this conversation as the train
carried him down to Sussex, but he thought
of it even more as soon as Rose, in her bright
young beauty, stood before him.
Harry Rawdon was a good fellow enough,
but not good enough for the Dysarts' daugh
ter! Who, Indeed, would be worthy of such
"Nevertheless," reflected the colonel, "I
knew his father when we were both boys at
school. I must do my best for Harry, and
one of these days I will sound Rose on the
subject and get an idea of the state of her
Opportunities of private chat were not dif
ficult to find.
Mr. and Mrs. Dysart regarded Col. Clith
eroe as a sort of venerable friend with whom
Rose might be sent to walk, talk or ride
without outraging even the narrowest no
tions of propriety.
Yet the colonel felt a shrinking from men
tioning the subject of young Rawdon's de
sires, and from speaking up for his many ex
cellent qualities. He liked much better to
talk over "dear old times," as Rose called
her golden days of childhood.
"I must have been a positive nuisance to
you, wasn't I, colonel?" she said one day as
they paced side by side the terraced walk
while waiting the summons to breakfast.
"I know I was always running after you,
yet you never seemed cross and bored."
"1 should think not, indeed," and the colo
nel laughed. "Your advances were so flat
tering. I could not reckon up the times
you assured me you intention to marry me
when you grew big enough. Ah. child," and
now a smile followed the smile, "I suppose
one of these days I shall stand among your ;
wedding guests— and I don't think I shall
enjoy that ceremony a bit."
"You will never be a guest," and now Rose
colored, yet held out her hull a:, bravely
as when she was .a child. "Colonel, I am
going to do something dread ul, T suppose.
P'r-aso never tell anyone; and plc:t_e say
'no' if you would rather gi\*e :hat ai'sivcr.

with g-ay and though his f.v*? had lines
on it which nothing but the -mssage .-f years
can t:a.*e, he loved Rose Dysart as a 'man

It was only when he told Mr. and Mrs.
Dysart of his good fortune that he remem
bered Harry Rawdon's commission.
"Never mind!" said Rose. "Your recom
mendation of him as a husband would not
have been of the slightest use. I have loved
you first and last and always— ever since I

William 11. as an Architect.
St. James Gazette.
As a statesman, soldier, sailor, preacher,
painter, and musician the Kaiser has afford
ed to the contemporary world successive
glimpses of his many-sided genius. It is
probable, however, that posterity will be
most concerned with William H. as an archi
tect. He is endowing Berlin with a couple
of buildings which bid fair to rival in their
colossal proportions the monuments of Nine
veh and Babylon. On the far from ample
space at the end of the famous Unter- der
Linden avenue, between the Schloss and the
museum, is being reared the new Lutheran
Cathedral — a gigantic structure in the form
of a Greek cross. The dome, it Is said, will
eclipse that of St. Peter at Rome, and only
in the length of the nave will the older
basilica have any advantage in size. As the
scaffolding already Indicates, this mass of
stone, embodying a curious variety of styles,
must completely crush into insignificance the
adjoining palace. To complete the work of
effacement, the Brobdignagian memorial
of William I. is in process of erection within
fifty feet of another front of the castle. The
huge hemlcycle, which forms a sort of pedes
tal, runs up to a height of nearly eighty feet
and dwarfs everything in its neighborhood.
However uneventful his reign may prove,
William 11. will certainly have left his mark
on the Prussian capital.
Queen Wilhelmlna of Holland is not likely
to become engaged very soon if a little speech
she is 1 said to have made recently Is authentic:
"I am very fond of my subjects, and I hope
to please them in every way, but if they
think they are to have a voice in the selec
tion of my future husband they never made
a greater mistake. If they take any extreme
measure- I shall be more determined than
ever, for I am resolved they must not coerce
me into a marriage which is distasteful. I
shall not marry unless I am allowed some
voice in the matter."
Persian Lamb Coats.
A novelty in fur coats is made of glossy
Persian lamb lined with white satin, fitted
closely at the back and loose In front, where
the edge is cut in squares, whioh lap over
an ermine vest. The bottom Is slashed in
the same manner, but not very deep, and
the sleeves are of black velvet shirred in at
the armhole, finely tucked below, and quite
plain below the elbow, with fur cuffs. The
collar is wide and square, and soft ends of
cream lace fall over the white vest
Satisfying Her Majesty.
San Francisco Argonaut.
Not many years ago, according to the annals
of the India office, a queen's messenger or
some other inferior official "was robbed,
though not injured in any way, on the road to
Cabul, and the British government of
course, wrote to complain of it. No reply
was received for months. But at last the
emir wrote: "The matter you mention has
been thoroughly investigated, and not only
have the robbers of your messenger been
put to death, but all their children, as well
as their fathers and grandfathers. I hope
this will give satisfaction to her majesty tit

The one thing the American people never

Nearly everybody we meet seems to be in
a continual state of nervous excitement or
possessed of a feverish energy to finish

health, energy and ambition, become thin

which we are subjected.
As a means of preventing the debilitating
effects of worry and overwork, many emi
nent physicians recommend the use of a
pure stimulant at meal time. Pure malt
whiskey has been found to give the best re
sults, and experiments have proved that the
safest and best of all whiskies is Duffy's
pure malt. This is because it is no ordinary
whiskey, but a pure medicinal stimulant
which gives stimulative nourishment to the
whole body. Its health-giving effects are
) speedily shown in a clear skin, a brighter
complexion, and increased strength.
Enquire, and you will be surprised to find
how many friends of yours are also friends
of Duffy's pure malt whiskey.
