I do this more readily in reirard to Hoofland's

indebted to my friendßo b't 4memaker,
for the rternoval of this prejudice by proper
tests, and for encouragement to try them, when
suffering from great and long debility. The
use of three bottles of these bitters, at the be

evident relief, and restoration to a degree of
bodily and mental vigor which I had not felt
for six months before, and had almost dispair

my friend for directing me to the use of them.

A Little German story, - rendered - from memory
The poet Bernhard sat in his little
dwelling-room in the fifth story of a
picturesque old house in a closely built
street of a ducal capital. Near him
played his three rosy buys; while Er
mingarde, his sweet blonde wife, plied
her household tasks, only pausing now
and then to turn• a cheerful glance to
ward the dormer window nook where
Bernhard was writing, or softly to leave
a kiss on his broad, white brow, as she
passed to and fro behind his chair.
It was the week before Christmas;
and the, three boys gathered in a knot
before the blazing are, were recounting
the last. fear's gifts of the good Christ
kindchen, and. innocently wondering
what they would receive this year.
"I know what I would like!" ex
claimed Paul, earnestly clasping his lit
tle hands, "if the dear Christ-kindchen
will find me worthy of it—a book of
fairy tales, filled with beautiful pictures,
liks the one we saw in the bookseller's
"And I," said Herman, "can. think
of nothing I would like so well as a
rocking-horse a very little larger then
that of our neighbor's son Heinrich,
down in the third story."
"As for me," lisped little Perti, "I
would choose a basket of sugar-plums,
wrapped in gold and silver paper and—"
"Oh, I have it !" joyfully interrupted
Herman. "Let us write the dear Christ
kindeheu a letter, asking for these

Christmas-day dawned brightly the'
little group of eager expectante, and, as
liernhard and Ermingarde watched their
happy faces and listened . to their impa
tient longings for night to come—this
night, when as the children firmly be-.
lieved, Christ,kindcheu would answer
their letter with the so desired gifts—
the lewd parents bad very often to turn
away to . conces.l their emotion. Alas !
their slender purse would not allow the
luxury of procuring these little presents
for their children I
After their early dinner, in preparing
which Ermingarde bad exerted, all her
skill, besides expending the best part of
her last florin in a Christmas • cake, .to
which Bernhard. and the , boys did full
justice, the dear little woman prepared
them all for a 'walk in the brilliant
Christmas.., streets, trusting that t,e
children would .become absorbed in t le
goy scenes without, and forget their ex
petted visit: from Christ-kindchen.—
With this hope-sba; and Bernhard per
mitted thorn to linger' at pleasure befare

hard was tempted to risk a few kraut-

great delight, a cornet of moat:delicious.
When night• came on, and the lumps
began to twinkle along the crowded
street, the little party'found themselves
some distance from the. Linden Strasse.
whereupon the careful mother prevailed
upon them to. turn their footsteps home

children's thoughts again reverted to
Christ-kindchen and the expected gifts.

A joyous shout from the boys, and 'a
flood of light falling in waves over the
winding stairway now startled Bernhard
and Ermingarde. Hastily mounting to
the side of their children--what a sight.

their little roomiwas wide open, and in
the centre of the tidy room rose a beau

blazed innumerable waxen tapers, be

ever were seen, golden and silver cover

little round table beneath lay three
prettily bound books, and near by stood
a fine rocking-horse, just as if he were
