HOOFLAND'S O HUMAN HITTnUS.
A bitters without Alcohol or Pplrlln of any kind,
H different from all Others. It Is composed of
tho puro Juices, or VirAr.rntNcit'U: or Hoots,
Heiius, and Hark, (or as medicinally termed
Fxtracts.) tho wot thlcss or Insert portions of tho
Ingredients not being used. Therefore in ono
Hottlo of this Hit ten there Is contained as much
inedlcinl vlrtuo as will bo found In several gallons
of ordinary mixtures. Tho Hoots, Ac,, used In
thin Hitters are grown In Oermany, their vital
principles extracted In that country by asclen-
tlflc Chemist, nnu lorwarucu 10 me nmnumcioiy
Jn this city, whero they are compounded and
bottled. Containing no spirituous Ingredients,
his Hitters Is free from tho objections urged
gainst all others; no doslro for stimulants can bo
Induced from tnoir usc.tney cannot mo ice urnnic
arils, nnd cannot under any circumstances, have
any but a beneficial effect.
HOOFLAND'S GERMAN TONIC,

trcino bitters, and Is Intended for use in cases
it lien ftoino alcohollo stimulant Is required In
y-i'icotuiecuon wilii uiu aoiiiu propi'mus ui tuu

Tonic Is tl.50 per Dottle, which many persons
think too high. They must take Into eousldcra
tlon that tho stimulant used Is guaranteed to bo
of a pure quality. A poor article could bo fur
nished at n cheaper price, but Is it not better to
pay a little moro a a liavo n. good nrtlelo? A
medicinal preparation should contain nnno but
the best Ingredients; nnd they who expect to
Main a cheaper compound, and be benefited by
It will most ccrtaluly be cheated.

whom wo would mention as nn exam

lino already foreshadowed In this article.
Born In the city of brotherly love, son
of n mechanic, who was ablo merely to
sccuro for his child the rudiments of a
common education, but formerly had
given him what Is of much higher con
sequence, a sound mind nnd a healthy
body. Ho was essentially ono of the
masses, a poor boy, with all tho world
before him, in which cither to mako or
mar ins toriune.
Ills first start on tho road to that for
tune and position which ho ultimately
secured was us errand boy in a drug
store ; then a practical Initiation Into
tho mysteries of that trade as an assls
taut, which by earnest, thorough study
ho mndo his own, and which was doubt
less tho grand foundation upon which
all his futuro successes wero reared,
and which fitted him for the battle of
life in that most speculative of all pro
fessions, tho proprietary modiclno bus!
Iness. With n sound, fundamental
knowlcdgo of drugs and combinations,
ho was in n position to analyze and do-
termlno practically nud personally tho
merits of any preparations which might'
como under his notice. And after n
careful and scientific Invtstlgation of
tho ingredients, occult virtues and cs-
sontials necessary ton wido spread pop

although tho German Bitters had been

they wero comparatively unknown. He
saw that thoonly courso was a thorough

and n Judgraeat almost intuitive, ho

cing tho terms of peace, disclosing a
scrap of history of great. Importance.
Tho Kmporor toys : " Wo havo arrived
nt tho end of a glorious and bloody war,
which was preclpltateu.by thorlvollty
you proven tod tho spread of tho war.
God bless you." Ilero Is tho koy to Un
lock tho hidden mysteries of the lato
contest. When Franco declared war
against Prussia, after tho Ilohenzollorn
sclicmo failed in Spain, tho opinion was
generally held and expressed, that Aus
tria nnd Italy would aid Napoleon.
Thero wero good and solid reasons for
such a beliof. Both nations wero deeply
Indobtod Jo Napoloon and France. It
was French troops, led by Napoleon,
that fought tho battles of Montebolio,
Magenta and Solfcrino. It was a French,
Emporor who concluded tho treaty ot
Villa Franca. Lombardy nnd Venice
wow rwtored to Italy by French valor
nnd Froneh diplomacy. Victor Eman
uel was mndo King of UnltoJ Itnly,
nnd that nation raised to a llrst-class
power by Fronch notion, French lnllu
encu nnd Frenclt gold. Tho withdrawal
of French troops from Komo, nnd tho
occupation of that city ns tho capital of
regenerated Italy was, tho crowning act
of French old to Victor Emanuel, and
thusitho obligations of Italy to Franco
wero deepened and mndo moro exact
ing. But for Napoleon nnd tho French,
Austria would havo been dismembered
after' tho Prusso-Austrian war. A short
campaign set jtho forces of tho two
powers faco to faco upon tho field of Sa
dowa. That conillct broko tho -power
of Austria. Her nrmy was defeated

It from thnt portion or his victim nearest
tho heart. It was his intention to hu-
mllltato Francis Joseph; to trample
upon tho Uouso of Hapsburg, and de
spoil Its princely possessions. But an
arralstico wns concluded at tho instanco
of Napoleon, nnd a treaty formed at
Prague, undor tho eyo 01 tno ruler 01
Franco, which liberated Austria from
the blood-stained talon3 of tho iionen-
zollcrn eagle. But for this Interference,
Austria would, havo shared then tho
fato of France, nt tho present tlmo. She
would havo been shorn of territory and
robbed of money. Such a fate was pro
vented by tho action of Franco and Na
poleon. Under such a pressure of recent
fact It was but natural to conclude when
Prussia and Franco crossed foils with,
tho buttons off, that Austria and Italy
would tako a hand In the struggle.
Especially had tho world a right to look
for such action after tho disastor at
Woerth nnd Sedan. But It camo 'not.
Italy rcmalnod quiet. Austria raised
no volco nor hand. They looked upon
heroic Franco bleeding at every pore,
and kept tholr troops at home. Why
this Ingratitude, this want of action ?
Why were not Austrian and Italian sol
diers seen upon thosoll of Franco? Tho
