IN SUPREME COURT ATTORNEY FOR HEINZE APPLIES TO HAVE JOHNSTOWN CASE HEARD AT ONCE. A dispatch from 'th .,lington states that Attorney \\'aytne .MacC\'cagh 'has applied to the I' nitel States supreme court for a writ of rettlorari to, have the case of the Johnstown MAining company brought into that court while it is still pending in the ,'iiited States court in the district of Mon- , tnna. The grounds upon which the Jolhs town :Isks a hearing in the supreimLe court is that it is not a part of the M. U. P. comipanly. This questi ot wal adjudicated by Judge Knowles in this city recently wlhcn the lutte & Itoston compautly asked for an or der of survey of the iMichael Devitt clatin. At that time thle M.

This decision was uphcldl by the t'nited States circuit court of appeals, whetn the Johnstownl ap Ilied ti that court for a writ of certiorari. F:urther grounds adlvanced for the writ ill the supreelll court are that the order of survey apllies to the Johnstowln. and as that is the only titeansa of obtainitng entrance to the IDevitt the court is asked" to, prevent the BIutte & Iuston cornpany' from cnteritng the Johnstown for that pur pose.

The Last Soldier of 1812 Vigorous at 107 Edward Noyes, a Drummer Boy Under Andrew Jack son, Who Also Served in the Civil War, the Oldest Living Veteran, Says DUPPFY'S PURE MALT WHISKEY Has Kept Him Strong and Healthy Past the Century Mark. Mr. Noyes, the hero of two wars, a soldier whose life has been written up all over toe country, although so7 years of age, states that he feels as well and strong today as lie did 4) years ago,and recently made a trip from Unity Corners, N. It., to Chileago without suffering any hardships. A drummer boy in the war of t8sa ani .a teamster In the civil war, as he was even then too old to serve in the rancs, Mr. Nayes has had a most eventual life. lie remembers with 9 ,, great vividness many of the historical flgures of the last century, and gratefully attributes his marvelous vitality and wonderful old age to Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey lie says:-"An old man's life can be a happy one if he is well, and I have been just as active and strong up to a few years ago as I was during the war in the South. My family and friends are all gone, but I am cheerful and hope to live some time yet. I was born in what is now Unity Corners, N. If., in 177y. I had been pretty well all my life, but sickness came upon me during the last ao years. Mly doctor told me it was old age, andl gave mne Dufly's Pure Malt Whiskey. 1 am taking that me,.cine now, and it is both medicine and nourishment to me. I cannot eat a hearty meal the way 1 used to, but Duffy's keeps me up and going. I would be alive without it." EDWARD NO)YES. Old age 's happy when it goes hand in hand withn ,ealth. Hundreds of men and women who have passed the century mark are kept alive and well today by the tse of Duffy's Pure adalt Whiskey. It was 0is nl MId I I eand so it is theirs. An absolutely pure distil. lotion of malt, without fusel oil, it is recognized by the government as a medicine. This is a guarantee. It is a tonic-stimulant recommended by physicians of every school, a boon to the weak and worn, the weary and depressed. It arrests the progress of physical decay, strengthens the heart, relieves the aching head, gives to the limbs their old time vigor and clears the brain. It enriches the blood and nourishes the vital forces, and in this way drives out disease and promotes health and longevity. Doctors call it "a form of food already digested," as it agrees with the most delicate stomach. If you wish to keep strong and well in old age take a tablespoonful three times a day in milk or water. Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey cures coughs, colds, consumption, bronchitis, grip. catarrh, asthma, pneumonia and all diseases of the throat and lungs; indigesion, dyspeps'a and all forms of stomach trouble; aervousness, malaria and all low fevers. Used exclusively in over 2,ooo hospitals. CAUTION.--When you ask for Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey be sure you get the genuine. Unscrupulous dealers, mindful of the excellence of this preparation, will try to sell you cheap imitations and malt whiskey substi tutes, which are put on the market for profit only, and which, far from re lieving the sick, are positively harmful. Demand "Duffll" and be sure you get it. It is the only absolutely pure Malt Whiskey whlic contains medici nal, health-giving qualities. Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey is sold in sealed bottles only; never in flask or bulk. Look for the trade-mark, the "Old Chemist," on the label, and be certain the seal over the cork is unbroken. Beware of refilled bottles. Sold by all druggists and grocers, or direct. Interesting medical booklet sent free DlUFFY MALT VWiIlSýý "YU CO., Rochester, IN. Y.

The (Christmas number of the Pilgrim is quite the most attractive issue of this thoroughly American magazine that has thus far appeared. Properly, much of the space in the issue is given over to fiction which is of a higher order than one is ac customed 'to in the so-called "family magazines." A significant little story is "That Boy," by Brant Whitlock, author of "The Thirteenth District:" Jack London, the famous author of "The Call of the Wild," has a story entitled "Amateur Nights," and Clarence Darrow, author of "Resist Not Evil," contributed a pathetically tender talc entitled, "Little Louis Epstine." A story that breathes the Christmas spirit is "The Evolution of a Santa Claus," by Edwin L. Sabin, while another story, brief but significant, is by Eli R. Sutton. It is a city of Mexico sketch. An article of gen uine and unusual literary value Is by J, W. Davies and is entitled, "Concerning John Bunyan." A remarkably well-interested .in stallment of Mr. Landon Knigmht's, "The Real Jefferson Davis," is one of the serious features of the issue, another of which is the editor's department of "Men and Mat ters of Moment." The Pilgrim, one dollar a year, so cents a copy, The Pil grim Magazine Co., Ltd., Battle Creek, Mioh. LITERARY NOTES. rThose interested in American "society" often express an opinion that the so-called "smart set" is a newspaper-made plutoc racy and that America is unique in this respect. To read Lady Henry Somerset's article "British Social Life," in the December Cosmopolitan, corrects this view. Lady Somerset is an important member of the old aristocracy, and her article on the new fashionable London of today is at once an Snteresting commentary on the tendency of the times and a protest against some of its more harmful features. 'H. G. Wells' story of wonderful adven ture, "The Food of the Gods," promises to be his most popular work.

A short illustrated article in the De ccmber Cosmopolitan shows what the poorest farmers can accomplish when driven to the last ditch. Home-made wind mills constructed of box boards, barrel staves, scrap-iron and odds and ends of discarded threshing-nmadines and farm implements, costing in cash about 30o cents, have been made in the prairie states to irrigate farms, pump water for thousanuds of cattle and sheep, shell corn, and relieve the farmer of what used to be the hardest manual labor. "Marjie of the Lower Ranch," Miss Frances Parker's breezy novel of the mountains of Montana, has been the com pliment of a handsome offer from one of the leading book publishing houses of London for its rights for Great Britain and the colonies. The reader who passed upon it wrote that "it is one of the very few novels of Western American life that seem real to us." Miss Mildred Champagne, the author of "Love Stories From Real Life," which is one of the best sellikg books of short stories published this fall, is a native of Cambridge, Mass., and a devotee of foot. ball. A room in her 'home is devoted en. tirely to trophies of the great college game, ranging from worn-out pigskin covers and photographs of players to ticket and seat ohecks, "On Satan's Mount," Dwight Tilton's novel dealing with phases of American life that are especially interesting in these days of labor troubles and the failures of over-capitalization, is under consideration by a prominent theatrical manager as a, possible dramatization for his star, one of the best known American actors.
