THE TEST OF YEARS,
And grows more and more popular every, Day.
A"grows more and more popular every
day ! and testimonials, new, and almost
without number, might be given froin ladies
and gentlemen in all grades of society, whose
united testimony none could resist, that Prof.
Wood's Bair Restorative will restore the bald
and gray, and preserve the hair of the youth to
old age, in all its youthful beauty.
Battle Creek, Mich., Dec. 21st, 1853.
• PROF. WOOD : Thee willt please accept a
line to inform thee that the hair on my head all
fell off over iwerity years ago, caused by a com
plicated, chronic disease, attended with an erup
tion on the head. A contin ea] course of suffer
ing through life having reduced me to a state Of
dependence, I have not been able to obtain
stud for caps, neither have I been able to do
them up, in consequence of which my head has
suffered extremely from cold. This induced
me to pay Briggs & Hodges almost the last cen t
'I had on earth for a two dollar bottle of thy
Hair Restorative about the first of August last.
I have faithfully followed the directions and
:he bald spot is now covered with hair thick
:and black, though short, it is also coining in all
over my head. Feeling confident that another
large bottle would restore it entirely and per
manently; I feel anxious to persevere in its use,
and being destitute of means to purchase any
more, I would ask thee if thee Wouldst not be
willing to send n -, e'an order on thineagents for
a bottle, and receive to thyself the scripture
declaratidn—"the reward is to those who are
kind to the widow and the fatherless."
Thy friend, SUSANNAH KIRBY.

Pular. 0. J. WooD": Dear Sir :‘ , —fis the latter
part of the year 1552, while attending the State
and National Law School of the State of New
York, my hair, from a cause unknown to me,
commenced faltmg off very rapidly, so that in
the short space of six months the whole upper.
part of my scalp was almost entirely bereft of
its covering, and much of the remaining por
tion upon the side and back part of my head
shortly after became uray, so that you will not
be surprised when you that upon my re
turn to the State of ludiana,'my mere casual
acquaintances were not so much. at a loss tql
discover the cause of the change in my appear:-
ance, as my more intimate acquaintances were
to recognise me at all.
1 at once made application to the most skill
ful physician in the country, but, receiving no
assurance from them thatmly hair could again
be restored, I teas &reed to becoMe reconciled
to my fate, until, fortunately, in the latter past
of the year 1857, your_Restorative was recom
mended to ine by a druggist, as being the most
tellable 1-lair Restorative in ule. 1 tried one
bottle, and found to my great satisfaction that
it was producing the desired effect. Since that
time, I have used seven dollars' worth of your
Restorative, and as a result, have a rich coat of
very seat black hair, which no money can buy.
As a mark of my gratitude for your labor
and skill in the prodindion of so wonderful an
article, I have recommended its use to many of
My friends and acquaintances, who, I um hap
py to inform you, are using it with like effect.
Very respectfully yours, A. M. LATTA,.
Attorney and Counsellor at Law.

Kneeling and Rocking the Cradle. ' j
What isthe little one thinking about!'
Very wonderful things, no doubt,
Unfathomable mystery !
Yet he laughs and cries, and eats, and drinks,
And chuCkles, and crows, and nods, and winks,
As if hiS head were as full of kinks
And curious riddles as any spynx !
Warped by elliptic, and wet by tears,
Punctured by pins and tortured by, fears,
Our little nephew will loose two years;
And he'll never know •
Where the summers go
He need not laugh, for he'll find it so !
Who can tell what a baby thinks?
Who can follow the gossamer links,
By which the manikin feels his way
Out from the shore of the great unknown.
Blind and wailing, and alone,
Into the light of day ?
What does he think of his mother's eyes ?
What does he think of his mother's hair.?
What of the cradle roof that flies
Forward and backward thrdugh the air?
What does be think of his mother'S breast—
Cup of his life and couch of his rest?
What does lie think When her quick embrace
Presses his hand and buries his face,
Deep where the heart throbs sink and swell •
With a tenderness she can never tell,
Though she murmurs the words
Of all the birds— -
Words she has learned to inurmer well?
Now he thinks he'll go to sleep!
I can see the shadow creep
thier his eyes, in soft eclipse,
Over his brow, and over his lips,
Out to his little finger-tips !
Softly sinking down he goes.!
Down he goes I Down he goes !

Popping t 1 Question.
Lord Justice-Clerk Braxfield was a
man of few words and strong business
haMts. In courting his second wife, his
precedure was entirely illustrative of the
peculiarities of his character. Calling
for the lady, he said to lief, u - itho . nt
preliminary remark, " Lizzie, I am look
ing out for a wife, and I thought von .
just that the person that would suit me.
Let me have your answer, off or on, the
morn, and nee mair about it." The lady
next day replied in the affirmative.
Perhaps he repented his precipitancy,
for when a butler gave' warning on ac
count of Mrs. Braxfield's scolding pro-
pensities, the Judge replied :
" Lord, mon, ye'ce little to complain
o' ; ye may be thankfu' ye're no married

The subject was immediately dropped ;

foolish thing when 'you marry oue of
