Old Hickory Tonic Is not a patent

a half' century used It in their own
practice. No other tonic they ever
prescribed would give the same good
results that their own preparation
gave, so they always returned to it.
If you are weak and sickly, go to the
drug store at once and buy a good big
S bottle of Old Hickory' Tonic. Take ae
cording to directions and notice how

Then ask your druggist for the lowest

for vto be weak and sickly Is the most
expensive thing In the world.

N?FAIRMONT, FRIDAY E

Y.M.C.A. ALMOST
DEFEATED CHAMPS
D. & E. Was Just One Point
to the Good When the
Game EndedFairmont
"Y" last night all but defeated
D. &. I-:., state champions, at
basketball, Welrner for tbo visitor,
caging a goal that changed the score
trom 21 to 20 In favor of the "Y" to
22-21 In favor of D. & E? In the last
twenty seconds of play.
Fairmont took a lead at the start,
the first ten minutes of play seeing
but one score made, theu In a few minutes
Fairmont had run the score up to
7 to 1, when the D. & E. boys began to
get going and the half finished 12 to 12
In favor of the locals.
D. & E.'s victory was won on fouls,
both teams caging nine field goals but
D. & K. muking 4 out of 8 tries, and
Fairmont but 3 out vf 10. In its floor
work, and at times Its shooting, the
Fairmont teom showed the best form
of the season. Fairmont's guarding,
in ail positions, wus tho closest seen
tills 'year and caused D. & K. to have
to take long shots, the majority of
which fallen. John Heed was particularly
good at his shooting and caged
two nrettv ones under thu board with
one lianileil over tbci shoulder swings
while closely guarded.
Since tlielr showing last night, Fairmont
Is demanding a game with Grafton
"Y" which every naturally is doing
Its best to prevent another game to
decido the honors between the two
teams. It Is believed however, that a
game will be arranged in the near future.
A little extra thrill was thrown in
last night when "Biz" Dawson, last
year's Clarksburg High boy. got his
dander up and started fireworks witb
