Miss Janis made her first appearance

Mr. Josiah Zeitlin, 101
years old July, 1906, lives
with his daughter, Mrs.
Isaac Krinsky, Brooklyn.
Mr. Zeitlin was a promi

years. In 1882 he retired
and came to this country.
He says that Duffy's Pure
Malt Whiskey has prolonged
his life, and is the medicine
to restore health and vigor
in old people.
"Although TSwas 101 years old on July
3d last, I still feel that I am good for sev

and after a lengthy business life in the
old land came to this country in 1882 to
reside with my daughter. I have used
Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey for many
years and find it very beneficial. It in
vigorates and gives me strength. I feel
that it has- helped me to live the 101
years. It seems to be the very medicine
old people need to restore their failing

i* HARMAN PROBE
Former Mmnesotan in Charge of
Investigation of Gigantic
Journal Special Service.
Washington, Dee. 7.An investiga
tion of the Harriman -railroad system,
with a view of bringing a prosecution
for the dissolution of the merger be
tween the Union Pacific and Southern
Pacific has been decided on by the in
terstate commerce commission after a
conference lasting all day. Frank
Kellogg and C. A. Severance have been
selected to make the investigation.
The two systems are believed to be
under the control and management of
E. H. Harriman. The investigation will
extend from New York to San Francis
co, but the dates of the hearings and
the cities in which they will be held
have not been determined.
This investigation is for the purpose
of developing evidence which will
bring about a dissolution of the great
est railroad system in the world and
action will be taken similar to that
which brought about the dissolution of
the Northern Securities company.
The Harriman system controls over
23,000 miles of railroad and nearly two
billions of dollars are invested in the
enterprise. The system will be sub
jected to the most searching scrutiny^
After the investigation is completed all
the facts obtained will be turned over
to the department of justice together
with the recommendations of the inter
state commerce commission and a pros
ecution will be brought under the Sher
man anti-trust law for conspiracy in
restraint of trade and maintaining an
unlawful combination if the evidence
justifies such action.
