There is no medicine extant equal to these
remedies in such eases. A tours and vigor is lin- -

strengthened, food Is enjoyed, the stomach di

plexion becomes sound and healthy, the yel,ow

given to the cheeks, and the weak am i l t iervous
Invalid becomes a atrong and heal being.
Persons advanced In life, and feeling e hand
of time weighing heavily noon them, with all
"its attendant tils„ will find in the use of this
1117TER9, or the TONIC, an elixir that will In-'

Da. Jar-awe—Dear Sir:—l have frequently
been requested to connect my name with rec

ot regarding the practice as out of my appro
priate sphere, I have in all cases declined ; but
with a clear proof in various In nines,
and particularly In my own family, of
the usefulnensof Dr. IA Hoofiand's German
Bittern, I depart for one from my usual
course to express my full conviction that; for
General Debility of the System, and especially
for Liver Complaint, it is a Rafe and valuable
preparation. In some. mem it may fail; btu,
usually, I doubt not, it will be very beneficial to
thaw who surfer from the shove cause.
Yours very respectfully,

How BEN FRANKLIN'S PRINTING CIPFICR
WASN'T SIWELCIIEM—The story is told of
old Ben. Franklin that when he printed 're
paper in Philadelphia, among other things
that received censure at his hands were cer
tain modes of transacting business by the
merchants of that city. He handled them
in such a manner us to arouse their wrath,
and caning a meeting among themselves
they waited the sturdy printer demand
ing to know what he meant. "Here," said
they,- "we have been patronizing and sup
porting you, and this is our reward. You
must change this mode of doing or we'll show
you that the merchants are i power you may
not trifle with. Without our patronage
where would you stands" "Gentlemen of
the Merchants' Committee," said the polite
printer, "I am, as you see, very busy now, but
call at my house this evening fin dinner, I
shall consider the matter over with you in a
friendly manner." The committee, congrat
ulating themselves that old Ben was evident
ly frightened, came to dinner at the hour
mined, but were surprised, to find nothing
on the table but mush—made from ill grinind
orn—and a large pitcher . pf milk. The mer
e ants' comnrittee, not 'being used to such
co rt 'c fare, could do nothing:but watch the
healthy printer while he made a hearty meal.
Rising from the table he addressed the com
mittee thus : "Now, gentlemen, he that can
live comfortably on such food can live with
out patronage. I shall cease to attack those
practices when-you cease to practice them,
and not before. Gentlemen, good-night."
And for many a year Philadelphia merchants
were better and f::r more honest owing to

me that they were disfranchised because they
would not vote the Republican ticket. I
talked with an old gentleman of Missouri,

uncle ut Abraham Lincoln, who 'is seventy

his county. What will become• of such a
Government, to 'condemn old men because
their grandchildren did wrong ? Mr. Todd

Gailandet, Rector of S.l Ann's Church in
New York, who came South fbr the purpose.
The bride rested on the arm of her father,
and Mrs. Church on the arm of the bride
groom. The head of the aisle was spanned
by a beautiful archway of flowers, and the
sacred desk and candelabra on either side
were tastefully dressed in wreaths of ever
green and rare floace.rs., When all were in
their places, the' Res( Dr. Gallaudet"began
to read the marriage service. At the conclu

A Touctiing Story.
The 11,1 lowing 'directing narrative purports
to have been given by a father to his son, as
a warning derived from his own bitter expe
rience of the sin of mdsting• a mother's love
and counsel : .
What agony was on my mother's face when
all that she had said and suffered failed to
move me. She rose to go hothe, and I ti!l
lowed al a distance.' She spoke to me no
more until site reached her own door.
"It is school time now," she said. "
my son, and once more let me beseech you
to think upon what I have said."
" I shaft t go to school," said I.
She - looked astonished at my boldness, but
replied firmly :

' I dare you to do it," said 1; "you can't
get me up stairs."
" Alfred, choose now," said my mother,
who laid her hand upon my arm. She trem
bled violently and was deadly-pale.
"If you touch me I will kick you," said 1,
in a fearful rage. God knows I knew not

few steps and leaned against the wall. the

against her breast. "0, Heavenly Father!"
she cried, "forgive him—be knows not what
he dos!" The gardener just then passed
the door, and seeing my mother was pale
and almost unable to support herrelf came
"Take this boy up stairs and lock him in
his room," said she, and turned off from
me. It was a look of agony, mingled with
the most intense love : it was the unutterable
pang from a heart that was broken.
In a moment I found myself a prisoner in
my own room. I thought for a moment I
would myselt from the open window.
but I felt that I was afraid to die. I was not
penitent. At times my heart was subdued,
but my stubborness !we in an instant, and
bade me not to yield yet. The pale thee of
my mother haunted me. I flung myself on
My bed and fell asleep. .Tust at twilight I

heart, and I longed to throw myself upon

I thought I was yet &earning, but I got up
mechanically and followed my sister. On
the bed pale as marble, lay my mother.
She had not yet undressed. She had thrown
her upon the bed to rest, and ri,ing to go
again to me, she wus seized with palpitation
of the heart, and borne to her room.
I cannot tell you my agony as I - looked
upon her—my remorse was tenfold bitter
from the thought that she would never know
it. I believed myself to be her murderer. I
fell on the bed beside her. I could not weep.
My heart burned within my bosom, my brain
was on fire. My sister threw her arms around
me and wept in silence. Suddenly we saw a
motion of mother's hand ; her eyes unclosed.
She had recovered her conscirinsness, but
not her speech. She looked at me and
moved her lips. I could not understand tier
" Mother". mother!" I shrieked,' say only
that you forgive me."
She could not say it with her lips, but her
hand pressed mine. She smiled upon me,
and lilted her thin white hands; she clasped
my own within them, and cast her eyes up
ward. She moved her lips in prayer, and
thus she died. I remained kneeling beside
her, that dear form, till my sister removed
me. Joy of youth had left me forever.
