A Peep Into ths Sheik'" Harem.
After a Ultlo mysterious whispering, we wen
asked If we sboul.l III"- m vhlt "the home,
thli being Ihe only Uum by which It Is permit
ted to allude to Ihe IVmalo portion of the i fam
IW. VoffUdljrwnted,thoiiRh feeling ndoob
as lo the kind of Interview wo should have
our Arabia being limited to live word!, and, til
couw, these ladles speak no other language
At thin moment two fine little boys run Into tin
court, sons of our hoil, about seven and foul
jours old. They were iplendidly dressed, aiic?
each had a superb alsrctte of diamonds In hU
fez; both had t'n Ir fin ilieplr stained Willi
antimony. Oorionpi n i' and nil tho other
men now weiu ua, and we were left alone
with tho Sheik, who, opening a door at the cm!
of the court, Introduced m Into a room fir
more European In Us fuculture than any of tin
other. The floor was covered with a bright
colored velvet carpet: n four post bed, wllh
muslin curtains, stood In one corner; and over
an English fire-place was n looklnjr-glass and
several ornaments of bad French cblua. Indeed
there was nothing Eistern about the room", bit
a long divan undar the latticed windows. Two
ladles now entered, evidently very nervous
and frightened. The eldest, the Shlek's wlf
looked much older than her husband; she migh
have been fifty, from her appearance, bin
probably was not thirty, as women In tho East
age rapidly: the constant use of tbo hot bath
want of exercise, and the quantity or swied
meats they cat, making them lose their teetli
and their complexions quite young.
She was magnificently dressed in crimson
brocaded satin, with a velvet jacket of lhv
siuiiii color, covered with gold embroidery, li
was very open in front, showing a chemisette,
which, as well as the underslecvi 8, were of thin
gauze, trimmed with gold lace; round lm
throat hung several gold chains, wllh medal
lions set with pearl, diamonds, emeralds, and
other pieclous stones. Her features were si III
handsome, though very strougly marked, the
tjes much blackened with antimony; otherwise
chew as not painted, nor were her hands statneil
wit henna. The younger lady, heT daughtu,
win nbont fourteen. She had tine eyes and a
geutle expression of countenance. Her dress
' as like her mother's In shape, the nettlcutt
only belnu; of velvet brocade and tho jacket
green, llotlt ladles wore long violet game
veils, fastened to the head by beautiful dla
tnoud ornaments; the hair was cut square to
the face, while a quantity of false hair huiu
behind in Innumerable plaits, to wbich gold
coins were fastened. A black woman now
brought an unlortunate baby, who bad evldem
ly been going through the misery of a toilelii.
The eyes were painted with antimony, white
tin tears caused by tho operation had' was) 1
long streaks of Hack down Its poor little cheeks.
On its head it had three caps, the upper one
being of velvet, perc-ed quite on the top ol its
head, nnd ornamented with diamond". Hit
the grandeur teemed to be reserved for the
higher regions, as Its legs were rolled up in a
sort of mulin rag. This baby belonged In
tho younger lady: we had ee,n It before for u
moment, strapped Into a most miserable cradle

TUG OBJECT or all medicine Is either to pre
vent disease, or to assist Nature In restoring
the various organs of the body to n healthful
action, and that medicine Is certainly the best
which will porform those offices thoroughly,
yet mildly, and without endangering Ihe vital
forces of the system, by whose normal condi
tion alone health and strength can bo preserved.
Most of tho Bitters that have heretofore boen
brought Into popular favor, have only served
the purpose of temporarily stimulating or ex
citing the organs Into a condition resembling
healthful action, nlthont any remedial effeot,
and generally followed by a return of the dls
easo, or a prostration of a nervous energy mora
disastrous than though Nature bad been left to
tako its own course
Dr. Greeley's Bitters are a preparation of the
nutritive properties of tho grain of the Holds In
combination with tho actlvo principle of many
simple alteratives and bitter tonics, and it Is a
pleasuro to the proprietors tostate that Its use
fulness Is being generally acknowledged by ihe
largely-increasing consumption In those sec
tions whore It is best known, and by the testi
mony of many emlnont physicians, who nave
not only made trial of It, but contlnuall pre
scribe the Bitters In those cases for which It Is
AGED PEOPLE, AND ALL WEAKLY
Consumptive patients, nnd othors, whose con
stitutions have become Iraparcd by time, or en
feebled by dise.eso, anil in whom tbe process of
digestion does not replace the fat and tissues of
tbe body as fast as they waste, will find these
Bitters at once nourishing and strengthening,
and happily adapted for their use. The groat
atlvantago the Bitters possess over ordinary
stimulants usually prescribed In treating lung
complaints and kindred diseases, is the fact that
they combine many safe and certain healing
properties in connection with tho best known
Will derive great beuoflt from it. No unpleas
ant effect will evor result from taking tho Bit
ters, If the directions are followed. For thtse
who suffer from nervous debility, languor, want
of rest, exhaustion, and In all cases of weak
ness, tbe Bitters are not equalled.
As an agroeablo stumnohlc, It Is much ad
mired; it sharpens the appetite, brightens the
inlelloot, and infuses new life and vigor. No
ono wbn uses these Ritteracau be subject to an
attack of FKVEIt and AUUE, or P1AUMKEA.
Of all the ills that afflict men and women, lew
aro so agonizing as Dyspepsia. It Is A sort ot
combination of many diseases. Thanks to
scionco and Da. fJieKELttr, a rjniiflo has now
been obtained. Oskklkv'k UoI'kmin Bitteus
tako straight hold of the disease, and begin a
ouro. Thous'inds of well-attested oasos ot
cures of Dyspepsia, Indigestion, and Fover and
Ague, even of the most desporate kind, are In
the possession of the proprietors.
Not a few people, everywhere, complain ol
Weakness or Debility. This Is the gentle hint
of nature for a littlo help In the way of Invlg
nration. The hint should not bo neglected.
"A stitch in time saves nine." Ret a supply of
(Ikiei.ey's BouunoN BiTTiuis, take them regular
ly, nnd our ivord for It you will foci better, live
longor, be stronger, and think and aot with vory
muoh more satisfaction. The Bitters are a
tonic, and of a nature never before attained In
any medicine. It will make the weak strong,
the despondlig hopeful, the slok well. For any
complaint of the Btomaoh, Liver, or Bowels,
there Is nothing comparablo with thlsmedlcme.
In America, the Liver Is the best abused of all
tho organs In the body. It Is made the saddle
of all other organs. As a consequence, It Is
often out of ordor, and not (infrequently nearly
Inoperative. This need not be; on the con
trary, it Is quite unnecessary. A little common
sense, and u sufficiency of GmuaBY's Boctkbom
Bitteks, will keop the Liver right, and make
man a man, and woman, now misorable, quite
happy. The Bitters regulate and strengthen
the Liver, no less than purify It.
The increase of Nervous Disorders, at the
present day, is one of the most alarming Indi
cations of the ago, or rather, would be, were
it not that a most admirable oure had beon
found. There Is not a phase of nervous dis
oaso, whatever It may be, that these Bitters
will not aot upon favorably, and In the most
efflolont manner. All who are unfortunatoly
afflloled with complaints of this nature, or with
Indigestion, or any diseases of the Btomaoh,
should not fall to make uso of Uiirklxt's Boca
Chills and Fever. In many portions or the
United States, this terrible disease seizes Its vlo
tiros as naturally as water soekB Its level. The
system, In a partlt ular condition, invites it.
The right medicine to prevent and cure this
rrmUcy, we unhesitatingly say, is Gksslet's
Bociibon Bittebs. It breaks up tbe fever,
drives It from tbe system, and will keep It at
bay, ir taken In accordance wllh directions on
the boUle. The Bitters purify and enrich the
blood, and this In return strengthens the oon
Blltutlon. As an agreeable tonlo, theso Bitters
havo no equal.
Greeley's Bourbon Bitters are meeting a sale
unparalleled In the history of popular medi
cines. In all diseases of the Stomach and
Bowels they are a sovereign cure. The worst
casosof Dyspepsia and Indigestion yield to tho
remarkable potency of the Blttors, which Is as
agreeable to me taste a u i i'"'j u mi-
railing in us gooa oueuis.
I In its good otieoii.
