ATTENDTO YOUR COLDS.—A cusef Sts ysaxs stand
tag sued br
Sb. KrtlZß:—My wife bos been afflicted with a bad
ooagh and difficulty of breathing for fire or six years,
which fur several years back had gradually increased in
violence. The complaint ,baa been hereditary, and alia bad
bean treated by soveralfpliysieians without auy relief. In
this state of her case I procured soino of your Pectoral
Ooaitb Syrup. I bpaght tbs first time a fifty cent bottle.
Which relieved her very much; I then called and got a
dollar bottle, which cured her entirely, and she has now
ne trspe of the former disease, except -weakness. 1 would
alio state that 1 used the medicine myself to a cold and
eougb. The medicine cured me by taking one dose. 1 ex
press my entire satisfaction with the medicine, and you
act at liberty to publish this if you deeire to do so.
Alderman, filth War'd.
•n. Stria—Althongh not an advocate of Patent Medi
cine in general, it affords me great pleasure to recommend
your Pectoral Syrup. As a medicine it is well worthy the
attention ufuiiy person who may in auy mannsr bs affec
ted with coughs, colds and hoarseness of any kind, and for
the peculiar qualifications for removing all that disagreea
ble sensation attending a cold.
■ I bate been mure orl&ss, in my life affected with the
severest eulds uf hoarseness.,. At times my throat would
become so doted as to -prevent my speaking above a whis
per. and by taking a few doses of the above Syrup it would
reliefs me entirely.
lu recommending this medicine, I must unhesitatingly
say that it Is tbs best medicine l ever found, purporting to
sure the above; nor should auy family be without this
seated/ Ut dissoses so prevalent
Tsars, must respectfully,

Sixcßixmis, 0., March 14th, 1859.
I have used Dr. Keyset's Covfgh Byrap for a bad eougb

best medlSths tor tbit sane that I have ever taken.
CP.—Dr. Ketser— Dear Sir: Excuse the delay of my ac
kuewledglng the excellence of your Pectoral Syrup sootier.
1 take great pleasure in laying that it ii all yon iar it is.
the' worst one I .was ever afflicted with; I hare not used
■ore than We half of the bottle, and can and do wish, that
all who are afflicted would give It as fair a trial aa I have
dene, and they will be!prondi to say, “It Is no quack medh
ciae.” I would not suffer another such an attack for any
consideration, or Ht any cost. lam confident 1 can breathe
■ore freely than 1 ever did. ■ I shall always acknowledge
• debt of grotitudi for inventing so excellent a remedy.—
Teii are at liberty to use my uamo In this regard, as you

Whs entertain doubts can consult me personally.
READ THE TRtiT[I —Da. Ketber : I hare & daughter
Who has taken several medicine* for a bad cough, who has
taken several medicines for a had cough, without benefit—
among them Ayer’s Cherry Pectoral. I purchased from
Ton a bottle of your pECTORAL StRtJP, and before she
had used half a bottle she was relieved. The second bot
tle eared her entirely of her cough.
PlTTsrruso, December 31st, 1853.
BTRCP—I live In Peebles township, .Allegheny county.—
.1 bad a coughing aid spitting, which .conQneuced about
the 4th of February last, Und continued eight months, T
employed the best physicians in the country, arid ray
cough continued unabated until earlv in October. At that
time I was adyised to try your PECTORAL SYRUP, which
X did, and after 1 had taken one bottle I was entirely free
from the roughing and spitting. I bad dlspatred of ever
getting well, and I think it should be known that this
valuable 'remedy will do for others what it has done In
ray case. JOHN C. LITTLE, Peebles township.

A ITOKD2KPUI. CCRE.—Some time ago, an old neigh
bor of mine was vsry jlll with a had cough which every one’
•opposed to be consumption. Ills relatives told nis Imhad
taken every remedy they heart! of without beneflt; his
brother came to sue him die,' and all wore confirmed injhe
helief that he could not live. I had abont thp-thlrd of a
bottle of your Pectoral Sjrap,whteh" I gave him, and It
••tlrely cured him, ;to the astonishment of all. What
makes the case morel remarkable, is the extreme age of
the man, hebeingiabqut eighty year* old. I imreno doubt
the Pestorml saved hla life. JOUh’ M’GINNIS.
TILLE.—PIease senjjime another supply of your Talnitble
M Pectoral Syrup.” Almost everybody aronnd ns has the
cold and are inquiring for “Dr.Reyser’sPectoral Syrup.”
Me hart sold sixteen ;bottles last, sreek, and aro now en
tirely out. Mr. Alter 1 and Mr.' P. Maher, both of Ulnirs
•eltis, Pa., tell us they would no| be without it in their
tanUies. In fact, all who use it once want it again.

Ob Ibe not the first to discover ' v
A blot on tho tame of a friend,
A| flaw in the faith of a lover,
Whose heart may prove true to the end.
Vfo none of us kno w one another,
.And oft into error we fall;.
Then lot us speak well of our brother,
|Or speak not about him at>ll.
A: smile or a sigh may awaken
Suspicion most false and undue;
And thus our belief maybe shaken
Xu hearts that are honest and true.
How often the light smile of gladness
la worn by the friends that we meet
lo cover a soul full of sadness,
Too proud to acknowledge defeat.
How often the sigh of dejection
Is heaved from the hypocrite’s breast.
To parody truth and affection,
' Or full a suspicion to rest.
How often the friends we hold dearest,
Their noblest emotions conceal;
And bosoms the purest siucurest.
Have secrets they cannot reveal.
1 ' i
Leave base minds to harbor suspicion,
And small ones to trace our defects—
Let otfrs be a noble ambition,
Tor base is the mind that suspects.
We none of us know one another,
’ lAnd oft into error we fall;
Then let ua speak well of our brother.
Or spook not about Mm at all.
’Tis sweet to know we have a friend,
I Unwavering as the aoa-girt rock;
jWhere stormy in rain their fury spend,
And naught but waves roll from the shock
Unmoved, unflinching, there it stands,
Though ocean's waves around it roar;
jUnlike the gay, coquettish sands
That sparkle on the distant shore.
|And such a friend, methinks, is miaa,
| As pure as is the morning dew;
[Unchanging with the change of time,
As constant as the rock it true.

sigh and frown, and wish impatiently for
the recess, and wonder why Latin Dic
tionaries were ever invented; when as if
by magic, they found themselves listening
to the pleasant voice of Master Friederich,
and actually understanding their lessons
—so clear and simple were his explana
tions ; and the time for recess came, to
their _great*astonishment, long before they
had expected.
When the studies were over, the mas
ter drew from his desk a box, and whilst
the children gathered around, he opened
it, and drew out charming little white and
pink sea shell* pretty pictures, and many
other beautiful things, which he gave to
the children with loving words.
But the most lovely thing of all was a
little white porcelain statuette of an angel.
She stood—so fair, so pure—with her
small white hands folded over her breast,
and her eyes uplifted that the children
gazed enchanted.
“ Oh, the dear angel, the beautiful an
gel !” cried they all. “ Wilt thou not
give it to me, Mr. Friederich?”
But the good master smiled and said :
“ The little angel is too lovely to be
given to any one without an equivalent.”
“ What shall we give you for it ?” cried
the boys.
“Well,” said 'master Friederich, “he
who brings me the brightest thing on
earth to-morrow, have the angel.”
On the next day, as might be supposed,
a motley collection of articles were pro
Some had polished upon shilling till it
shone like a little crown ; one brought a
watch crystal which his father had given
him, and which be considered a wonder
of transparent brightness ; and Kline, the
rich Hoffmeisler’s son. had bought a paste
buckle, made to imitate diamonds, than
which, in his opinion, nothing could be
All these things were placed on the
master's desk, side by side. The shilling
shone away famously, the pebbles and
watch crystal did their best, but Kline’s
buckle was the bravest of all
“ Ah, mine’s the brightest!” shouted
Kline, clapping his handd.
“ But where is little Carl ?” said Mas
ter Friederich, “he ran out just now.”
All eyes were turned loathe door, when
presently in rushed Caff, breathless. In
his hands, held np lovingly against his
neck, was a poor little snow white dove.
Some crimspn drops upon Ithe downy breast
showed that it was wounded.
“ 0, master,” cried Carl, “ I was look
ing for something bright, when I came
upon the poor littld white dove. Some
cruel boys were tormentinglt, and I caught
it quickly and ran here. Oh, I fear it
will dje.”
Even as he spoke, the dove’s soft eyes
grew filmy, it nestled closer in Carl’s neck
then gave a faint cry, drooped its little
head and died.
Carl sank on his knees beside the mas
ter’s desk, and from his eyes there fell
upon tho white dove’s poor broken wing,
two tears large and bright.
The master took the dead dove from his
hands, and laid it tendcjrly on the desk
with the bright things; then raising Carl
he softly said : “ My children, there is no
brighter thing on earth that* a fender
inf) tear”
The boys were silent for a ipoment, for
they felt that the master had decided that
Carl had rightly won the angel; then
Kline cried oat:
“ My master, thou didst not fairly ex
plain to us. I pray thee give us another
“ Yes, dear master,” said Max, « give
us one more trial.” ■“
“ What sayest thou Carl ?” said Master
“ Yes, dear master,” answered the gen
erous boy.
The good master smiled thoughtfully,
and his eyes rested for a moment lovingly
upon Carl; then glancing around, he said :
“He who brings me the loveliest thing
on earth to-morrow, shall have the angeL”
The children 1 clapped their hands and
departed satisfied.
. After school the next day, Kline was
the srst to run up to Master I?ricderich,
and lay upon his desk what he Considered
tue loveliest thing in the whole,world, his
new soldier cap, with the long scarlet feath
er and bright golden tassel* .

“My children, the Blessed Word dTGrod

And as before, gqod Master Friederich
inquired. ' ' •
“ What sayest tßott CarH” and he an
swered as before, vwith generous Baste,*
“ Yes, dear master.”
( “Now this is time/* said the
toaster “ he who brings toe the Seat thing
on earth shall have the angel.” '
“ The very best thing on earth is plum
cake,” cried Kline on the third day. as
he walked up to the desk, bearing a targe
cake, richly frosted, with a wreath of sugar
roses round the edge-—this he placed tri
umphantly before the master, sura of the
prize.. ; .
-“Nay, thou art wrpng this time, Kline/’
said] Max, “ I asked my father what was
the' very best thing on earth, and he
laughed and gave me this golden guilder
—the prize is mine.”
“Ah, but my father said that, the very
best was a good glass of RheinkE wine !”
cried Otto, “ and 1 1. have brought a bottle
of it, thirty years old. The prize is
ly mine.”
So they went on, till all had plajcsd their,
offerings before their master.
“Arid thou, Carl," said he, ‘f.what hast
thou brought which thou thiukest the best
thing on earth ?”
A crimson flush rose to the little boyV
forehead, and coming softly forward, he
took from his breast: a small worn Testa
ment, pressed it to his Upland then fep
verently laid it down with the rest —as he
said in a slow sweet; voice, “My mother,
dear master, says that God’s precious Tes
tament is far beyond all earthly posses
“ ’Tis thine, Carl!” cried the maritor,
snatching the boy to his breast. “ The
white angel is thine ! for there is nothing
in the wide world so previous as the
blessed words, of Christ”—and he placed
the angel in the hands of the trembling
Llinc knit his brows, and gazed with
anger and disappointment at IheV. little
Carl—and the rest seeing him do this felt
themselves aggrieved, but suddenly, the
cloud cleared from Kline's face, arid rush
ing forward he caught Carl, in his arms,
crying, “ Forgive me, dear Carl—mow I
am gla?d thou hast won the prize.”
Ah I the blessed jeffect of a bright ex
ample. Quickly joining hands,; the chil
dren danced joyfully around the little
Carl, who stood in tpeir midst, the white
angel pressed to his heart—-his fair hair
falling in curls on his shoulders his
blue eyes full of hqlyltears.
The good Master* Friederich also wept
for joy, and prayed from the depths of his
pure and simple heart, that the Saviour
would bless this lesson to the children’s
everlasting good. He had turned away
that none might perceive his tears.
