Tnlco the pillows from the cradle
AVhore the little sufferer lny;
Draw tliu curtains, oloo tho shutters,
Shut out every beam of day.
Spread the pnll upon the table,
I'laco tho lifeless body there ;
Back from oil' the warble features
Lay the auburn curls with cure.
With its little blue-voined fingers
Crossed upon its sinless breast,
Freo from care and pain and nnguish,
Lot the infant cherub rest
Smooth its little shroud about it ;
Pick iu toys from oil" tho floor ;
They, with all their sparkling beauty,
Ne'er can charm their owner more.
Tnko the little shoos nnd stockings
From the doting mother's sight ;
Pattering feet no more will need them,
Walking in the fields oflight.
I'nronU, faint and worn with watching
Through tho long, dark night of grief,
Dry yotjr tears and sooth your sighing
Gam a respite of relief. .
Mother, care is no wore needed
To nllay tho rising moan ;
And though you, perchance, may leave it,
It cun never be alone.

But I blow him up sky-high 1 " !
Den Nap. he 6ticks out his pig nose,
In Bismarck's faco quite near;
Old Biz. he give him vig'rous pull,
Den dhrinks some lager beer.
But Nap. he froth and shtamp and shwore,
And said he'd make him dunce;
But Bismarck tweaks his nose again,
When Nap. cried "Vive la France I"

If you, or any of your friends, nro thus afflicted, send
at oneo for a Jlottlo of English Fcmalo Hitters und bo
cured. Its effects are magical in such coinnlaints.
Surely no mother will postpone and delay this duty
. Death is at the Door.
In all these complaint" thesystim evidently shows u
want of red blood, and Mr. Churchill, in bis work on
Diseases of Females, says; "Hearing in mind thnt the
blood is remarkably dcucicnt in red corpuscles, and tho
known property of iron to correct this condition, theory
suggests it ns the most to bo relied on, the best of which
is the Citrate." Citrate of Iron enters largely into tho
composition of English Fcmalo Bitters, combined with
powerful vegetable tonics of rare qualities.
Among tho mountains of Tcnnessco and the piney
woods of Mississippi, is found a certain hard and flinty
root, which has been in secret use by somo old mid
wives for many years, possessing music powers in regu
lating and rcsturing all females suffering with any af
fection of tho womb. This root wo havo obtained, gavo
it a fair test in our practice, and it is now ono ol tho
principle ingredients in theso Hitters. Other powerful
utcrino and general tonics also enter into its composi
tion. Wo nli-o add I.cptandra or Black root, sufficient
to net upon the liver nnd keep tho bowels open.
Blooming Young Girls,
Middle-aged matrons, thosont the critical period, and
tho nged grandmother, aro all cured by tho uto of our
English Fenialo Bitters, now prescribed and used by
physicians nil over tho country.
If you aro troubled with Falling of tho Womb, at
tended with a. sense of weight and bearing down pain
in tho back nnd side, and other attendant evils, English
Female Bitters will give entiro relief.
Those nt the "turn of life," mothers after confine
ment, nnd all others unalo or female) who aro convales
cents from any protracted or dcbilltatingomplaint,
who gain strength slowly, and wlmso digestion is slow
nnd imperfect, will find theso Bitters tho very thing
their system demands. It gives n powerful nppetite,
aids nnd assists digestion, arouses tho liver, strengthens
mentally and physically, and fills the wholo system
with pure crimson blood coursing through its channels.
Common Grogshop Bitters
Empty bitter bottles, of various styles, can be found
around almost every dwelling and cabin throughout
tho land. Their tasto is pleasant, nnd aro advertised to
euro almost every disease, whilo tho manufacturers
know they possess no medicinal properties whatever.
They aro so many disguises for cxctedinglv common
foreman, which do not, nor ennnot, possibly euro nny
Bcwaro of theso pleasant bitters in quart bottles;
they contain a sting for your vitals, and ho who buys
them carries a "toper's" grog into hfe houso. Ono man
who knows nothing about medicine, says his big bottles
of common stufl'will euro chills and fever, rheumatism
und consumption; another, whoso bottlo is very fancy,
cures all impurities of tho blood, makes old men young,
casts nut devils, restores eight to tko blind, and numer
ous other miracles; whilo yet another, who presumes
every man a drunkard, proposes to euro colic, ingrow
