Twenty-two years since they were first intro

which time they have undoubtedly performed
more cures, and benefitted suffering humanity
to a greater extent, than any other remedies
known to the public.
These remedies will effectually cure Liver Com
plaint, Jaundice, Dyspepsia, Chronic

es arising from a dls- ordered Liver,

There Is no medicine extant equal to these
remedies In such cases. A tone and vigor is im
parted to the whole system, the appetite is
strengthened, food is enjoyed, the stomach di
gests promptly, the blood is purified, tho com
plexion becomes sound andhealthy, the yellow
tinge is eradicated from the eyes, a bloom is
given tone cheeks, and the weak and nervous
invalid becomes a strong and healthy being.
Persons advanced In life, and feeling the hand

Its attendant ills, will find in the use of this
BITTERS, or the TONIC, an elixir that will in
stil new life into their veins, restore In a meas
ure the'energy andardor of more youthful days,
build up their shrunken forms, and give health
and happiness to their remaLuing years.
It is a well established fact that fully one-hall
of the female portion of our population
aro seldom In the en- T joyment of good
health ; or, to use j_f their own expres
sion, "never f eel well." They are lan
guid, devoid of all energy, extremely nervous,
andhave no appetite.
To thieclass of persons tho DITTEII.g, or the
TONIC, IN especially recommended.
Weak.and delicate children aro made strong
by the use of either of these remedies. They
will cure every case of MAILIS)III.9, without
fail. Thousands of certificates have accumula
ted In the hands of the proprietor, but space
will allow of but few. Those, it will he observed,
are men of note and of such standing that they
must be believed.

Da.. JAmcsox—Dear Sir :—I have frequently
been requested to connect my, name with rec

tut regarding the practice as out of my appro-
priate sphere, I have in all cases declined ; but
with a clear proof in various in Lances,
and particularly in - 11,T my own famUy, of
the usefulnessof Dr. .L llooiland's German
Bitters, I depart for oncc from my usual
spume to express my full conviction that, for
General Debility of the System, and especially
for Liver Complaint, it Is a safe and valuable
usuapreparation. In some cases It may fall; but,
lly I doubt not, it will be very beneficial to
those who stiffer from the above cause.

Thirty Years Ago.
I met a girl the other day,
Some twelve years old or so,
The Image of a nymph I loved
Some twenty years ago.
The blushing cheek, the sparkling eye
The hair of raven Ilotv—
Ah ! how they set my heart ablaze
Some twenty years ago.
I spoke—lier answer did not much
Of witim. wisdom show—
But thus the lovely Mary talked
Some twenty years ago.
What! could a shallow heart like this
My helitt in tumult throw
I must have been a little green
Some twenty years ago.
I met the lovely Mary sinee-:-
Het charms have vanished, though—
Her wit and wisdom are—the same
As twenty years ago.
I looked upon her faded check,
Unlit by feeling's glow ;
And thanked her that she scorned my love
Some twenty years ago. =--
Foud boy, who now wouldst gladly die
To please some simpering miss— .
Who knows what thou wilt think of her
Sonic twenty years from this?
1 HEART OF GOLD.
I thought I loved him. Why ? Why, be
cause it was So grand to have a lover. /was
just sixteen years -old, pretty; and tiliack- -
wood's girt John May was one of father's
"hands"—a tall, gay fellow that I was fond
of All the other' girls liked him, even my
sister Lydia, who was even prettier than I ;
and still he wasn't "well off," and had no
good prospects. He had his mother and lit
tle brother to take care of, and was only. a
"lumber hand." So my mother told - me
when they first talked over my proposal from
him—father, mother and my sisters. I had
nothing to ~ay only that I loved him,and by
and-by they half withdrew their objections,
and let me do, as I would.
He did love me. I can remember now a
thousand little sacrifices he made,that showed
as plain as could he that he loved me with a
unselfish affection. If I was only proud
o?his straight limbs, strong hands; curly,
flaxen hair, and frank laugh, I. knew how all
the girls envied me when lie began to show,
as plain as day, that be was in love with me,
When he went up the mountain with me
one day, and rested on the ledge, he 'asked
me--flushing up to his handsome eyes—l i ? be
his wife, because he loved me, I thought I
would have an engagement ring to show.
But after we were engaged,'he never seemed
to think of it. The girls said that they did
not believe that I was engaged in him, and I
thought John ought to consider that I had a
right to a ring. I said so.
`..Tohn," said I, pouting, "-au ought to give
me a ring."
lje looked surprised.
"Why, Kate," sail he, "a ring don't .tmount
"Yes it does," I answered t "it means that
we are engaged."
"Baden% we know it, he add
ed, kissing me fondly.
"Yes, hut other people I can't tell
everybody, and they ought to know it."
"We'll show them a marriage certificate by
"T !hall want to be nwried at present."
"Vt. ry Ivell,• then, don't trouble 3-ourself
al. out other people.until yotr are. Ss here,
Kato. here is a little gold heart; it was made
out of the liist gold dollar I ever earned,
when fath ,, - , ':ed and I had mother and Jim
tny to htke.care of, I got it made for a keep
sake. Take it and wear it to remember me
It was a pretty little bright thing, but it
was not the engagement ring that I wanted.
I kept pouting, but John treated me as if I
were an unreasonable child, and when" I
wouldn't laugh and chat with- him, he grew
grave, kissed me gently and went away, leav
ing me by myself in the moonlight on the
porch. I was so angry that I cried—l had
no idea that he would refuse me; he had
never before refused me anything. Ye had
always appeared glad when I expressed* ail
wish that he might gratifi n . it. I could not
bear that he should deny eso cooly, when
he saw how my heart wah set on the thing ;
speaking briefly, and disregarding my re
sentment as though I were a child.
I had not sat ;done but a minute before I
heard his step again. He came close to my
side, and put his arms around me.
"Kate," said he, and I could see how gen
tle and earnest he looked in the moonlight,
"if I could get you a ring easily, I would do
so, but I cannot. I- cannot do so without
sacrificing the actual needs of those I love.
You know, dear, that you are going to mar
ry a poor man, and you must learn what the
words prudence, frugality and economy
mean. I had to learn them longbefore Iwas
as old as you are. Your desire for the ring
is only a him, Kate, it isn't a necessity. 'I
am living' very strictly now, that I may de
prive my dear mother of nothing in her old
age, if I make you my wife next year. You
know what my means are. Kate, won't you
be good and help me V"
lie looked so firm and good, yet so sor
rowful and firm, that I cannot understand
now why T was so stubborn and wicked. I
looked him defiantly in the eyes.
"How mean!" said I.
lie straightened him , elf quickly, .and
stepped back from me. Then lie in an
altered Voice :
"Do you think so, Kate ?
"Yes,q I answered ;_"it's as mean as dirt to
talk economy to me about such a thing. It
was bad enough for rue to have to ask for it ; ,
any other man I know would not have '
obliged me to do it. It is mean, and it alters
my feelings towards you. Take back this
heart, I do not want it."
My hand trembled, and so did his, and the
heart dropped to the ground.
He picked it up.
"You - don't want my heart, Kate ?"
I was silent.
"Kate, speak to 41,e."
But J would not speak.
'Good night," said he, and turned away.
. dropped my head down and sat there sul
len, for au hour after he had gone down the
hill road. .
At last Use clock in. the kitchen struck nine.
I was damp with dew, and arose to go into
the house. Just then I saw some ono siding
up the hill on horseback. Pretty soon I saw
who it was—Bradford Terry,-who owned the
tract of land on the other side of the hill, and
more woods than any other-man in the coun
try.. He drew up his horsq to the gate.
"Good evening Miss Kate ; are you wait
ing for your lover ? '
I don t know what made nsc say it, but I
"No; I haven't any lovey."
Bradford Terry was a little, shrewd, busi
ness man, with a small body and a more in- ,
significant soul. I knew it very well, yet I
waited for bins to speak again, sitting there
on his fine, iron-gray horse.
"Haven't? well, rut glad to hear it. I was
afraid you were going to throw yourself away
on some poverty stricken fellow—John May,
My cheeks burned at his words, but he was
looking at me shrewdly, and I tossed my
" "No, indeed!"
"Too pretty l'gr that. Ali, these handsome
girls know their value. Miss Kate, would
you marry an old fellow like me if he was
rich, and would make a lady of you?"
I latighed coquettishly.
"You arc not very old, Mr. Terry."'
"Only fifty—square flity=and you are six=
teen. Is that too much difference?"
I was silent.
"Ife had dismounted, and standing beside
me was trying to take .my
"Pretty one," said he, "will your be My
wife? You shall dress in silks and dia
"Yes ; diamonds on your white neck, and
.on your little hands, and on your, wrists.
They will glitter like your eyes. Will you•
have them ?"
" Yes," fired with the dazzling vision of my:
self which arose before me. • "I - will marry
you if you will give me all I' want."
"I will. You shall have 'all the money
you want, and spend it as you like." - •
"I will marry you."
He looked at me in the moonlight.
"Now, you won't change your mind to
"I shall hold you to your
here, Will you wear this?" '
He- slipped a ring, from his finger. I
caught the glitter of a splendid diamond. ,
64 ° WI ,
He placed the ring upon my.finger. • 2
"Now - you are mine, beauty. Good
I bent my head in silence. He mounted
the saddle; and looking steadily back at me,
he rode away. '
I went to my chamber and retired. It was
strange after all this excitement, that I could
sleep; but I fell into ,a heavy ilumber,,and,
did nut awake until tuurnia. i t It at l ate
and the sun was shining into the loom. A
little cup, quaintly formed of birch hark,
which John May had idly fashioned one even
ing, as we sat together, stood on the stand at
the bedside. I put out my hand, smiling, to
take it, when the diamond glittered in the
light. Then all the work of the previous
night flashed upon me.
For a long hour I lay b till, thinking, us I
had never thought before. At last I decided
to abide by my decision. I would keep the
diamond. I would be the wife of Bradfbrd
Terry, and have more diamonds, and luxury
After - this I did uut see JUIIII May for
months. The news of my engagement to
Bradford Terry, the rich landlord, spread
like wildfire. The girls, my old schoolmates,
looked at me with a sort of awe; my moth
er was in a state of constant agitation and
surprised at the honor to be conferred upon
the family, and I laughed carelessly at all,
and thought of the diamonds.
I don't think I was myself all the' IN inter.
My mother wondered why I was so wild and
"Why don't you sit dour n, Katie ?" she
would say. "You must learn to be dignified
I'd run away from them all, and walk the
bills, to come home pelted by the storms. I
liked them. I'd rush in the face of the light
ning, over the crags, and standing on the
dizzy heights, sing wildly, with the thunder
for chorus. I would Scream recklessly until
the woods would throb with echoes. Then
I-would come home and act rationally for a
day or an evening.
Spring came. The river opened, and the
logs, which had been bedded in the stream,
all winter, while'it was frozen, came floating
down with the blocks of ice. In some cars
they came over the falls, a giant network of
ponderous logs, thundering, foaming, strain-,
ing, and wallowing in their entanglement,
now and then blocking up the river's course,
and Calling for peril and enterprise among
the timber hands, that they might be,disen
gaged and sent smoothly on their;way'io the
sawing,distriet; two miles below.
When news first came that the ietzl had
broken up, the men started from their win
ter quarters and prepared for labor. An im
pulse to go up the river and see them at
work, seized me. I went secretly, tot my
father would not have given his consent.
I went at daylight, one glistening mording,
to a large ledge at' rocks which, hid in the
bushes, overlooked the river without being
seen. Bruising the sWeet wild bayberry and
fern, I crouched down there and waited for
the men to come. I could hear % their voices,
and I knew that the logs were coming.
The river seemed to,hurry as it flowed, as
lUn fear of an impending disaster. Already
Muhl hear the thundering of the breaking
ice and plunging lu,n as they went over the
Listening, witching, waiting, I forgot my
self and fell. k had just heard the approach
ing shouts nt file men, and a nearer familiar
voice as it called an order. Then I lost my
senses as I reeled headlong into the river.
I might have died% there and been happy,
but love was stronger than death. Through
the half uconscious distress 01 drowning I
heard tire voice I knew better' than that of
the mother who bore me. I flung out my
arms, struggling with the cold current, was
clasped and lifted back, living; to my father' s
arms. I knew' where I was;' then came a
warning shout •
- "Quick ! quick! .Tohn, the logs are com
I saw it all; it was too late; and the log;
swept down on the struggling form 41;1 pale
(lice. Ile went wider them, and I never saw
his thee again. They took bins from the
river two miles below, but no• one was al
lowed to see him—not even hi, mother.
The heart I would not have was jest to me
" Did I marry Bradford Terry?" Yes.
Why not ?
A case has just been tried in the Criminal
'Court of Posen, Prussia, which - , in its pecu-
liar atrocity, actually outdoes the sanguinary
legend of Bluebeard.
The criminal was a bookbinder named
Wittman, and the crime of which he was ac•
cased, and for which he has been condemned
to death, was the poisoning of four wires
and two children in the space of six years.
This Wittman, while working as a jour
neyman inWollin, some ten years ago, made
the acquaintance of the governess of his em
ployer, an M. Pirsh, who died suddenly not
long afterward, leaving his entire fortune to
Wittman thereupon settled 'at Wain, and,
in 1860, married the heiress of M. Pirsch.
Two male children were born of this union.
In 1862 Mrs. Wittman died very suddenly,
leaving all she possessed to her husband.
Three mohtlis afterward the eldest boy was
attacked bv a mysterious disease and also
died. In hue, 1863, Wittman married his
second wife, who had likewise some money,
and who died in the following December,
after having made a will in her husband's
favor eight days previously. In April, 1864,
Wittman took a third wife to his bosom in
the person of an heiress richer than either
of the - previous victims, and this woman died
within .tive months, shortly-after having
made a will dividing her fortune between
her husband and her mother. ' -
Two months after her death, Wittman en
tered for the fourth time into Matrimony.
This time wedding a wealthy widow with
one child, who died three days after the mar
Wittman then left Wain and settled at
Posen. Ms fourtli and last wife died, in Sep
tember, 1800, having, like her predecessors,
made a will in favor of her husband, about a
Under pretext that she had died of cholera,
Wittman wanted to have her buried immedi
ately, but the extraordinary mortality in this
man's family had at last attracted attention,
and the police interfered with his rather pre
mature arrangements. A physician, was
called in, an examination made, the pretence
of arsehic•prov . ed, and Herr Wittman was
lodged in jail, just as the funeral procession
started from his door.
The bodies of 4,is former wives and of his
two children were afterward exhumed, and
a chemical analysis revealed traces of arsenic
in all of them. The proofs were too patent
to admit of doubt or discussion, and after a
brief trial, Wittman was, as above related,
condemned to death. Ere lids he 'has paid
the penalty of his crimes.
A negro wedding lately took place in this
county, at which the sable parson thus

With rays oT rosy light;
And loving eyes are glea l lting,
As fall the shades of night.
And while thy steps are leaving
The circle pure and bright,

The world in which thou mo7cst
Is busy, bras a and :
The 'world of hu tho't

The world, cold, inhuman,
Will spurn thee if thou fall,
The iovc of one pour woman
Outlast% and shames them all
Thy children will cling around thee,
Let fate be dark or bright;
At home no abaft - can wound thee,
Then "Don't stay late to-night."
Ancedotca of an Eccentrio
Fred. Emmons was an eccentric wit, well
known at Buffalo, Cleveland,Erie, and other
lake ports, several years ago, as a steam
hoat runner." He it was who, on being:
stopped by a robber one dark night, with a
demand lhr his " money or his life," e 0011:,
responded that he hadn't got any money,
but if he would step under - a lamp post he
would write hint his note for five or ten dol
lars! Poor Fred.! It was immaterial to
him whether it was five or ten dollars, for In
never paid anything.
Charley Coe, of Cleveland, now proprietor
of the Cleveland flouring mills (and the man,
by the way, to whom " Artemus Ward"
dedicall his first book, styling him in his
charact ristic, warm-hearted - way, " a friend
all the car round,") once lost a valuable
dog. Thinking that he might: have got on
board of the Buffalo boat and been carried
off, as he was about the dock a good deal;
Coe wrote to Md. Emmons, then in Buffalo,
to Institute a search for the dog. Weeks •
passed without a word from Fred. Being'
in Buffalo ono day, Mr. Coe met Fred., who
said he had been searching for the dog ever
since the receipt of his letter, but with no
success thus far.
" I have, however," said Fred., "a little
bill that I would like you to settle, if . .

Webster Matched by a Woman.
In the somewhat famous case of Mr. Bog
den's will, which was tried in the Supreme
Court some years ago, Mr. Webster appeara
as counsel for the appellant. Mrs. Green
ough, wife of the Rev. William Greenough.
late of Weston, a tall, straight, queenly-look
ing woman, with a keen, black eye—a
woman of great self-possession and decision
of character—was called to stand as a wit
ness on the oppositi side. Mr. Webster, at
a glance, had the sagacity to foresee that
her testimony, if it contained anything of
importade - e, would have great weight with
the court and jury. He, thereforc, resolved
if possible to break her up. And when she
answered to the first question put to her
" I believe," Mr. Webster roared out :
" We don't want to hear what you belie., e ,
vg want to hear what you know."
"Mrs. Greenough replied: "That's just
whabli was about to say, sir," and went on
with her testimony. And, notwithstanding
his repealed efforts to disconcert her, she
pursued the even tenor of her way, till Wel -
ster, quite fearful of tie result, arose, appar
entlir in great agitation, and drawing out.his
large suuff-box, tlirtigt his finger to the very
bottoni; and carrying the deep pinch to both
nostriN, drew it up with agusto; and then
extracting from his pocket a very large
handk:Tchief, which flowed to his feet as he
brouglf it do the front, he blew his nose
with a repOrt that rang distinct and loud
through est: hall.
Webster—" Mrs. Greenough, was Mrs.
Bogden a neat woman?'
Mrs. G.—" I cannot give you very full in
formation a.: to that, sir; she hail Car yen
Vebster—" What was-lhat, ma'am
Mrs. 13.—" She took .wall"
The roar in the Court house u us , uelt Huai
the defender of the Constitution subsided,
and neither rose nor spoke again till Mrs.
Greenough had vacated her chair for another
witness, having ample time to reflect on the
inglorious history of the man who had A
stone tkrown on his head.
LISTEIMG TO E REPORT&-" The
longer ITtre, the more I fuel the importance
of adhering to the rules which I have laid 4
down for myself, in relation to such matters:
Ist. To hear as little as possible of what is
to the prejudice of others.
2d. To believe nothing of the kind till
ant absolutely forced to it.
3d. Never to drink in the spirit of one
who circulates an ill report.
4th. Always to moderate, as far as I ran,
the unkindness which is expressed toward
sth. Always to believe that, if the other
side were heard,- a very different account
would be given of the matter. I consider
love as wealth, arid as I would lesist a man
who should come to rob my house, au would
I a man who would wcaken my regard for
any human being. I bonsider, too, that per
sons are cast into different - moulds: :tall that
le ask _myself,' ' What should I do in that
,person's situation'!" knot a just way nrjudir
ing. I must not expect a men naturally cold'
and reserved to net like one that is naturally
warm and affectionate; and I think it a gr( at
evil that people do not mike more rilltt\t
i glees for each other in this particular."
