Welave, in our possession, any quantity of

it, so as lo enable the patient
TO EXPECTORATE FREELY.
Two or three doges will invariably cure tickling
in the throat. '
A Half Bottle has often completely cured the
MOST STUBBORN 'COUGH,
and yet; though it is so sure and speedy in its
operation, it is perfectly harmless, being pure
ly vegetable. It is very agreeable to the taste
and may be administered to children of any age.
En cases of Croup we wall guarrantee a curt.,
if taken in season. rjr—No FAMILY should be
without it. It is Within the reach of all, the
PRICE BEING ONLY 25 CENTS.
And if an investment and a thorough trial
does not "back up" the above statement, the
money will be refunded. We say this-know

THE BRIDE IN HER NEW HOME,
BY /MS. STOWE
Youeg people who cannot expect by

than two or thrqe - servants, if .they hap
pm to have . . the, means in the outset,
furnish a house with, just such &diale
cts in England- would suit an• establ'• 1-
mentof siiteen.."We have,seen ses
in England having two or three h use=
maids, and tables served by a butlerttnd
two waiters, where the furpiture, car
pets, china, crystal, and silv,er:were in
one and the same style with some es=
tablishments in America where the
family was hard pressed to keep three
This want , of servants-is the
that must modify everything in Ameri
can life ; it is,land will long continue to
be, a leading feature in the-life of a
country, so rich in openings for man. arid
woman that domestic service can be
only, the stepping-stone , to something
higher. Nevertheless, we -Americans
are great -travelers; we are sensitive,
appreciative, fond of novelty, apt to re
ceive and incorporate into our own life
what seems fail. and graceful in that of
other people. -Our women's wardrobes
are made elaborate with the thousand
elegancies of French toilet—onr houses
filled with .a thousand knick-knacks of
which onrplain ancestors never dreamed.
Cleopatra did not set sail on- the Nile
in more state and beauty than that in
which our young American bride is of
ten ushered into her new home. Her
'Wardrobe all gossamer lace and quaint
frill and crimp and embroidery, her
house a museum of elegant and costly
gewgaws; and amid the whole. collec
tion of elegancies and fragilities, she,
perhaps, the frailest.
Then . comes the tug of war. The
young wife becomes a mother, and while
the is retired to her chamber, blunder
lag Biddy rusts the elegant knives, or
takes off the ivory' handles by soaking
in hot water—the silver is washed in
'greasy soap-snds, and refreshed now and
then with a thump; which cocks the nose
the teapot away, or makes the handle
assume an air offirtinken defiance. The
fragile china it"; chipped here and there
around its, edges with those minute gaps
so vexatious to a woman's soul ; the
handles $y hither and thither , in wild
confusion of Biddy's washing-day hurry,
when cook wants her to help hang out
the clothes. Meanwhile, Bridget sweeps
the parlor with , a hard broom, and
shakes out showers of ashes> from the
grate, forgetting to cover the damask
lounges, and they directly look as rusty
and time-worn as if they had come from
an auction. store ; and all togpther unite
in making such havoc of the delicate
ruffles and laces of the bridal outfit and
baby layette, that, when the poor young
wife comes out of ber chamber after her
nurse has left her, and, weakened and
embarrassed with the demands of the
new-corner, begins to look • once more
into the affairs of her little world, she
is ready to sink with vexation and
couragement. Poor little princess !
Her clothes are made as princesses wear
them, her baby's clothes like a young
duke's, her house furnished like•a lord's,
and only Bridget and. Biddy and Polly
to do the work of cook, scullery-maid,
butler, footman, laundress, nurs,ery-maid,
house-maid, and lady's-maid. Such,. is
the array that in the Old Country would
be deemed necessary, to take care of an
establishment got up like hers. Every
thing in it is too fine—not too fine to be
pretty, not in bad taste in itself, but too
fine for the situation, too fine for com
fort or liberty.

Too' often, ceaseless , fretting of the
nerves, in the wife's, despairing, consci
entious efforts to keep: things as they

.to be freely handled and
easily replaced. Life becomes a series
of petty embarrassments and restrictions,
something is always going wrong, and

may we be clear from the track when he
is in eight ; he knows' more then thin
Washington and Franklin together ; in

in all the' topics. They !Mow what , is
to be said for and against' all ,sorts of
questions, and are lively and full of mis

subtle. They put you to your trumps
immediately. Yqnr logic is more in
requisition even than' yon gallantry.--
