• flentlernen 1--I have recently been laboring under the
distressing effects of indigestion, accompanied by a pros
tration of the nervous system. Numerous remedies were
recommended by friends, and some of them tested, but
without relief. Your Hoot:band's German Bitters were rec•
ommended by, persons who had tried them, and whose fa•
curable mention of these Bitters induced rue to try theta.
I must confess that I had an aversion to Patent Iledicin X
from the "thousand and one quack "Bitten," whose o ,
ly airn seems to be to palm off sweetened and drugg
liquor upon the community in a ely way, runt the tenden
cy of which, I fear, is to make many a confirmed drunk
ard. Upon harming that yours was ,really a medicinal
preparation. I took it with happy efftlct. Its action, not
only upon the stomach, but upon the riervous system, was
prompt and grunfying. I feel that I av 4 derived great
• d permanent benefit from the use riffrtent bottles.
Very respectfully yours;

I have derived decided benefit from the use of Hoof

From the many respectable recommendations given to
Dr. hloodand's German Bitters, I was induced to give
them a trial. After using se,ve,tal bottles I found them to
beg good remedy fur debility, and a most excellent tonic
for the stomach. D. MERRIGE.

" Come, Mirk Meriden! don't settle down into
an oldgrandfather before your time—a pretty
wife'sjipretty thing, Mark, and a pretty house is
a pretty thing, but hang it! one must hare a lit
tle of life."
Mark Meriden stood at his desk, giving a last
look at his books, While Ben Sanford—the roguish
—the merry—the song singing—the Ben of all
Bens, was thus urging on hint, the claims of a
projected frolic that evening. Now, Ben was
precisely the messenger for such an embassy—
there was fun in the magic twinkle of his blue
eyes, and a world of waggery in the turn of his
head, and a pair of broad roguish chinples that
went merrily in and out of his cheeks every time
he spoke, and lie Mid hold of Mares arm to drag
hith away. But Mark shook otr his hand, a p.L
finished summing tip a column offigures—hut - the
blotting paper into the book; and the book into'
its place. wiped his pen, and at last, turning to
I thia I n m i l go this time."
" Now, üby not ?" said Ben eagerly. -
" Became—because," Said Mark, smilingly,.
‘.• because I have an.odd fancy that I should like
the pleasure of Mrs. Meriden's company better
-" Hang - - Mrs. Meriden—beg pardon. Mark—
hang myself for saying so—but one, don't like hi
see a fine fellow like you buried alive i—couir take
a real wake up with us."
" Thank you, Ben, but I haven't been asleep,
and don't need to. So MI go home and see my
wife," and thereat herturnitda resolute step home
ward, as a well trained husband ought.
" Now," says one of, our readers, " who was
Mark Meriden t" You would not have asketrr
giiod reader, if you had lived in the town, of
when his name first appeared on the outside of
one of its most fashionable shops, " Mark Meri
den," surrounded by those haring easigns of grace
and fashion so that young belles need not have
their eyes turned oil from beholding it. • Every
thing in the tasteful establighineut toff a well
arranged business. and Mark himself, ire mirror
of fashion. faultless in every article of costume,
quick,atteutive, polite, was every day to be seen
there winning •4 golden opinions from all sorts of
people." Mark's shop became the resort for high
ton—the fashionable exchange. the promenade of
beauty and wealth who came there to be enlight
ened as to the ways and means of disposing of
their surplus revenue—to see and be seen. So
attentive, polite and considerate was Mark, so
profound his bows, so bright his eyes, so unex
ceptionable his whiskers, that it might have proved
a dangerous resort for ladies, had not a neat,
tasteful house going up in the neighborhood been
currently reported as the future residence of an
already Mrs. Meriden, and in a few months the
house, neatly finished, and' tastefully furnished,
received the very lady who called herself to that
effect. She was as truly refined and lovely
woman as ever formed the centre flower in a
domestic bouquet, and Mark might justly be par
doned for having as good again opinion of
himself for haring been fortunate enongh to se
Mark bad an extensive circle of busines:_n
pleasure acquaintances, for be had been one
social Companionable sort, whose money generlry
found its way out of his pocket in very fair pro
portions to the rate it came hi. In short, he was
given to clubs, oyster suppers, and now and then
a wine party, and various othevsocial privileges
for elevating one's spirits and depressing one's
cash that abound in enlightened communities.
'But nevertheless, at the bottom of Mark's head
there was a very substantial bump of a certain
quality called common sense, a trait which,
though it was never set down in any chart of
phrenoloc), way very justly be called a faculty.
'and one, ton, which makes a great difference as
the world goes. In consequence of being thus
constituted, Mark, %hen he tolled 1 - n113250i in love
with, and engaged to, a very pretty girl, began
to reflect with more than ordinary seriousness on
his habits, aa3s and mamwrs of
.life. He also
took an accurate survey of his business, formed
an average estimate of his future income on tilt ,
soberest probabilities, and determined to live a
little even within Thal. He also provided him
self with a little account book, with which he in
tended to live in habits of very close acquaintance,
and in this book he designed to note down all the
savings consequent upon the retrenchment of cer-
Min little extras, before alluded to, in which he
had been in the habit of pretty freely indulging
Upon the present occasion it bad cost him
something of an effort to say "no" for Mark was
one of your easy "clever fellows" to whom the
enunciation of this little syllable causes as much
trouble as the gutterals of the Germans. Flow
erer, when he came in sight of his -ptklor win
dows. through which a bright fire was shining—
v. him he entered and found the clean glowing
hearth, the easy chair drawn up -in front, and a
pair of embroidered slippers waiting, for him quite
at their leisure, and, above all, vgTteg he read the
quick glance of welcome in a pair of very bright
eyes, Mark forgot all about Ben Sanford and all
bachelor friends and allurements 14 hatever, and
thought himself about the happiest fellow on
The evening passed off rapidly by the help of
music, reading and a - little email talk of which
newly married people generally find &supply, and
the next morhing found Mark at early business
hours with as steady a band and as cool a head
as if there had been no such things as bachelor
frolics in existence.
Late in the afternoon, Ben .Sandford lounged.
in to ogle a few of the ladies, and above all to ral
ly Mar on losing ttirgloriousfon of the evening
" Upon my word. Mark." be began. " we must
hat e ou put _up fur Selectman, you are beconnug ,
so:extretuely ancient and venerable in )our ways;
however, you are to be oxenged," he added," cir
cumstances considered—female influence f—ah !
well, it's a fine affair, this marriage!"
" Better TRY it, Mr. Saudford," said a bright,'
saucy girl, who, with her laughing companions,
were standing close by while Ben was speaking . .
"Ah ! madam, the wherewithal!" said Elm,
rolling up his-eyes with a tragic expression.
some clever old fellow would be so obliging as to
die now, and leave me n fen thousands—then, la
dies! tau would see."
"tut speaking of money;' said,:qatk,`74 hen - he

'' . olo hang Wall," said Ben-=" totytrue! I eau
get no remedy for this 'consumption of the purse,'
.as old Falstaff says • however the world owes me
and so, goai minming!"
Ben Sandford was one of that class of young
men of whom common report goes, that they eau
do anything that they please, and who consider
this point so well established that they dobot con
sider it necessary to illustrate it by doing =any
thing at all. He was n Lawyer of good,ttalents,
and would have had an extensive not of losiness
had he 'not been one of those kind of people who
can never be found when wanted. His latv books
and office saw far less of him than certain fash
ionakk• places of resort, where his handsome per
son and carious social accomplishments always
secitred tsr him a stelcome reception. Ben had
Amite little properly left him by his lather, just
enough, as he used laughingly' to say, _"to keep
,him iu Owes and cologne water," and for the
rest he seemed vastly contented, with, his -old
maxim, "the world owes me a living," forgetting
that the world cats sometime prove as poor a
paymaster as the most fashionable young men go
- But to return to Mark. \V Len he had settled
his accounts at night, , 4e took from a pigeon hole
in his desk the little bunk afore named, and.euter
ed as follows: "To one real wake up, $10,"
Which being done, he locked his desk, and return
ed once inure to Mrs. Meriden. _
Days flew on, and the-shop of Mark became
increasingly popular, and still from time to time
he was assailed by the kind -of 'temptatinn we
hose described. Now it was "Mark, mt dear
fellow, do join no in our trip to now,
"Come, my old fellow, let us hate a spree at
:" now it was the club, now the oyster
supper—but still Mark wns invincible, and as one
or another recounted the history of the scene, he
silently committed the amount of expense to his
little book. Yet was not 31ark synical or anew
'cial. His refusals though firm were good natur
ed, nod though he could not he Alrayenbroad,
yet he was unquestionably openhilida at tonne.

and in fine, notwithstanding his short comings,-
' Mark was set down as a fine openhanded fellow==
after all. •

to thu bookseller's and ordered some books of

a gardener to send' sothe exdtiei; fur which he -
had heard her express au admiration some even

That same evening came in Ben Sanford, as he
expressed it, "in the very depths or indigo!" for
young gentlemen whose worldly matters invaria
bly go on wrong end foremost, will sometimes be
found in the condition, however exuberant may
their stock of animal spirits.- •
"Pray, Ben, what is the matter?" said. Mark,
ndly, as the latter strefeiied linnaelf 'at length.
in an-ann chair, groaning audibly: `
