UNPARALLELED SUCCESS -OF THE WORLD-RENOWNED HIGHLAND BITTERS, OR - ' SCOTCH TONIC THE. GREATEST REMEDY FOR ALL DISEASES Or the SMmach, Iivrr, nail Kwcl EVER DISCOVERED! . HEALTH TO THE SICK! DRINK AND LIVE! TO THE PUBLIC. A few words is all that is necessary to mite known tbe history and wonderful curative powtrs of this astonishing remedial agent, the Highlaid Bitters, or celebrated Scotch Stomachic, which hat proved itself, in every instance, to lie the only p nacea or true talisman to health to the sick and af flicted of every nation and of every clime. It was1 discovered by George Ballangal, M. D.rF R- S., Professor of Military Surgery in the far-famed Uni vereitv of Ed!S-sr. Scotland. When climatic dis eases were cutting off in thousands the British and French soldiers in the Crimea, during tbe Russian War, Sir George Ballangal was appointed by her Majesty, Queen Victoria, as Chief of tbe Medical Commixsioiiers, to investigate, in a scientific man ner, tbe extraordinary longevity and remarkable good health which 1ms always characterized the in hab tantrt of the Scotish Highlands, and the causes which led to such deplorable results to the same Individuals when exposed to a change of climate. He, Sir George, discovered by patient research that the Highlanders had been in the habit of using a certain combination of herbs and roots, indigenous to their native hills and glens, which, when com bined with oriental aromatic, was tound to be tht mottt superlative invigorator and builder up of tbe human system which tbe world or suffering human ity has ever known. Its remarkable powers as a medicine were lully tested, and crowned with un precedented success tn every instance where its vir tues were tried ; and it might have been truly said that tbe good time had come at last. Having proved itself equal to every emergency, the original receipt was handed over to a respect able firm of pharmaceutical chemists In Edinburg, who have prepared it exclusively, till its introduc tion into the Southern States a short time ago. And it mny be mentioned as a conclasive proof of its intrinsic merit, and sufieriority over all other preparations or stomach medicines, either iu Europe or America, that up wards of : THREE MILLION BOTTLES Were sold in Great Britain alone, besides upwards of 700,000 dozen exported to all parts of the habit able globe. The attribute of the Scotch Tonic is to prevent a well as cure, by attack-rng the root of tbe com-. plaint, and thereby removing the lidden canae ot disea-e, by gently stimulating and rewtoriug the drooping energies of the system, snd assisting nature iu her task of vital and functionary refor mation. To every one suffering from Bilious and Liver Complaints, Dyspepsia, Indigestion, Loss of Appetite, Heartburn, Debility. Sick Headache, Costiveness, Impurities of the ilod, and all affec tions I the Stomach, Liver and IJowels, it Is in valuable ; and as a preventive of Chills and Fevers, whether Bilious. Remittent, Intermittent, Typhoid, or any other form, it is peculiarly applicable, being a perfect regenerator of the whole functions of the tin iimn system. Comparatively few doses of this palatable stomachic makes the sufferer feel elastic aad vigorous, removes all impediments, strengthens generally the whole human functions, and has never been known to fail iu a single instance where it has been tried. Females and children can use this strengthing cordial for weakness or stomach "diseases of any kiud. To the mother, while unrsing, tbe Bitters are indispensable, and mote particularly wheu the mother s nourishment Is inadequate to the demands of tbe child. To those who wish to reclaim themselves from a life of druukenness to one or sobriety, these Bitr tei-s will most eflectually dissipate the morbid appe tite for Ptrong drinks, and restore both the func tions of the mind and body to a sound healthy con dition, and will act like a charm In renovating the system, and drive away the Sick Headache, Nause ous Stomach, and all tbe usual attendants of de bauchery. litis only true mid rejuvenating cordial, tle Highland BUterty or Scotcli Tonic, is Sold and prepared from the original receipt by S. lANSFIELD & CO., - PHARMACEUTICAL AND MANUFACTURING CHEMISTS AND DRUGGISTS, No. 281 and 283 Main Street, MEMPHIS.

THE HID NIGHT GUEST; Rewaixl of Hospitality. "Oh, tis s blessed thing to jrive tbe stranger food and shelter, when far be wanders from bis friends and home. Corxelia.' The night was dark and tempestuous, and the wind howled mournfully amid the branch es of the forest trees ; murky clouds rolled upward in huge and threatening masses, ob scuring the light of the pale moon, and hiding the star gems that illumined her path ; hoarse peals of thunder shook the vaulted heavens, and lurid flashes of light ning darted like meteors down the sides of the inky clouds. Slowly the rain drops be gan to fall, pattering heavily down on the dry leaves in the forest, and warning the belated to seek hasty- shelter. The deer quickly ran to their coverts; the fiercer ani mals sought refuge in their dens and caves ; while the Storm King, in his chariot, went careering swiftly by on the wings of the shrieking gale. , A young gentleman, mounted on a spirit ed horse, was pursuing his way along the forest road, in the gloom. lie hsd thrown his bridle rein loose on the neck of the sa gacious animal; and the gallant Least now free from all restraint, pricked up his ears, and went onward at a rapid trot. " 'Onward, Firefly!' exclaimed the horse man, as he drew his slouched hat down on his brows. Firefly neighed shrilly, and in creased hi speed as though ho understood Lis master's words. 'A light! a light!' exclaimed the youth as 1$ neared the outskirts of the forest; and in a few minutes more he drew up in front of a small inn. lie sprang lightly to the ground, and rapped loudly on the door for admittance. A voice from within inquired, 1Yho's thereV ' - 'A traveler, who is lost in the storm,' re plied tile youth. 1 Tbe Kits were drawn back, and the door cautious! opened by a young lady of un common Leauty. - , . 'Heaven what a night! Where is your j father, Misi?' - j I have no father; I am an orphan, sir?' I Well, thert is some person here who can put away my Wrse and feed him, is there not?' ! 'No, sir I am all alone; but I am so glad you have cotne. . . 'Then I'll put rty horse in the stable my self. Have you a lantern?' Yes, sir.' . j 'The most beautiful girl I ever saw,' solil oquized tbe young tian as he came out of the stable, after having made Firefly com fortable for the nitjht. 'Glad because I've come? I wonder what 6ue means by that? There's some mystery lere, I think. Per haps I'm in for an advenbire.' Tbe j'oung girl was sitrtng by the fire-side as he entered; but during his absence she bad placed food on the taLV, and a bowl of sweet in' lk. The traveler smiled as he sat down before the viands, and began to eat. The storm began to rage fiercsly without. 'You said you was glad I hI come,' re marked the traveler as he drew back from the table. 'Pray tell me why?'s You are a gentleman, sir. I know it by your languoge and appearance,' Vegan the maiden, in a tremulous voice. 4 Do not in terrupt me, and I will tell you why I made that strange remark. A, My father was a rich merchant,' and I was an only child he" died about two months ago, and before his death he appoint ed his brother my guardian. As soot as my father was laid in the grave, my uncle sold our old homestead and made me accom pany him to this lonely place, and since ,1 have been here I have been compelled to da all kinds of drudgery; and once my uncle struck me a violent blow.' The cowardly wretch,' exclaimed the stranger. . . 'I did not resist in any manner, for . he threatened to kill me. I did not mind his abuse as much as the insults I have received from a notorious ruffian and horse stealer, called Blinky Ben, who lives far away among the mountains. My uncle brought him here, and ho says I must marry him. I thought my only chance of escape from a fate so horrible would bo to run away. I Intended to start this very night ia the storm, and wander, I cared not where. Last night Tstole carefully down stairs when they thought I was asleep, and I listened to their conversation when they knew it not that door that opens into the ball was only half closed, and I listened to their words, for they had both been drinking freely, and they spoke loud. My uncle offered Blinky Ben one thousand dollars to carry me ofJf. He agreed to do so, and to-night he is coming after me. My uncle started oat to meat him about half an hour before you arrived, and they would hare len here ere this if tbe storm had not prevented them. Oh, sir, I am a poor, friendless orphan,' she ex claimed, clasping her hands and kneeling be fore him. 'can you, will you, aid me? Do not let them take me away and murder me willyou?' :--''r''' ' - f" " Ralph Manners was a brave youth, and his resolution was soon takenhe would have fired death in any form for the beautiful and helpless girl before him. (Rise, young lady,' he said, kindly, 1 hare faced danger and death in Mexico, and I will protect thee from all harm, though a score of ruffians stood in my path. Retire to your chamber, and fear not; I will sit by the fire and await their coming; 'tis better we should not be seen together. . Oh, wr, I will atay with you, exclaimed the maiden I fear for your safety let me v remain 4 TFRMS ii i ii ill 'Nay, you had best retire.1 Are you armed ? inquired the girl. Well armed, replied the youth. "Tis nearly one o'clock. Good night. 'Good night, brave young protector, said the girl, as she turned away. 'Nettie Wil bur will go to her chamber and pray Tor Ralph Manner,' added the youth, as the blushing girl withdrew. 'She's a perfect little fairy!' exclaimfd the gentleman, as he drew from bis pockets two silver . mounted revolvers, and examined them. 'I'm afraid I shall lose my heart if I escape with my life. Ah, well ! if I fall IU die in a good cause, that's one point for sat isfaction. ' " ' He thrust the revolvers -back into-his pockets, and taking the candle in bis hand, he went into the hall to look about bhn. 'Aha! here's a door under the stairs ! Ill open it. A cosy little nook for me to hide in!' . With these words the traveler stepped in and closed the door behind him. For a loflg time he waited patiently for the arrival of tbe two villains. Seated on a trunk listening, the minutes seemed like hours.' At last be heard them enter the bar-room; and presently they came into th e hall; they began to ascend the stairs. 'I guess she's asleep,' said one. 'Hush ! we'll make her get up and put on her riding dress; and when you have her safely mount ed on one of the horses, you'll have no trouble.' , - The youth heard no more. His plans were changed. He hurried from the closet, pass ed through the bar-room, and went out of the inn. The storm bad passed over, and the stars were shining brightly above. Two horses were tied to a tree that stood before tbe door, and Ralph saw that one of them had a side-saddle on its back. He was not long in getting his own good steed from the stable. Springing lightly into the saddle, be rode a short distance from the inn and halted by the road-side. Twenty minutes passed by, and then the door of the inn was opened. The two vil lains came forth with their victim. She ut tered no cry; she offered no opposition, but suflered her uncle to lift her into the saddle. A few whispered sentences were exchanged between Blinky Ben and himself, and then the villain seized the maiden's bridle rein and rode ofl". The inn door closed, and Ralph heard the sound of horses' footsteps ap proaching. The young man braced himself firmly in the saddle, drew forth one of his revolvers, and waited Lis' time. Slowly they came up, and passed by without noticing the horseman by tbe road-side. Ralph put the spurs to Firefly, and ' the spirited animal bounded forward. Quickly he thrust the revolver into his pocket, and grasped his rid ing whip firmly in his right Land. The vil lain heard the noise behind him, and he turned quickly to see who was coming. Ralph Manners was upon him the whip descended heavily and so truly was the blow aimed, Blinky Ben fell from the back of Lis steed on the ground. The youth grasped the maiden's horse, and saying, 'Keep a firm seat, Miss Wilbur 1' started at a rapid pace along the muddy road. Daylight was slowly breaking in the east when the young man and bis companion halted before a small hostelric in the village of De Sioux. After seeing the maiden com fortably provided for, he went immediately to the bouse of the constable, and told bis tale; in half an hour that officer in company with Ralph and three stout backwoodsmen, were on their way to Thomas Wilbur's inn. When they arrived they found the landlord in his chamber, ready equipped for flight. " He was arrested, and put under the care of tbe aids, while the constable and Ralph ransacked the writing-desk of the villainous landlord. The will could not be found-1 They next searched the landlord, and, like ndre,' be had the important document in his boots. The prisoner was taken to the village and tried. . He was sentenced to serve a term of imprisonment for ten years. He is now there paying the penalty of his crime. Blinky Ben made a 'borne run to the fountains, and he has never been heard from ance. s On examination, it was found Mr. Wilbur bad all the money belonging to bis niece de posited h a bank in , Cincinnati ; the young lady's claim to tbe property was substan tiated by the will, and everything now was at her own disposal. - There is a small, neatly sanded parlor in tbe humble kn of - the village ; and seated side by side, q a lounge near one of tbe windows, are lalph Manners and Miss Wil bur. ... 'I know I cannot repay you for your kind ness and tbe dantei- you have gone through for my sake, the fair girl waa saying ; 'but, sir, 1 shall always think of you, and your name shall be renembered in an orphan's prayers.' I have done no more than any other brave man would hare done,' replied the young man ; and yen can repay me, aye, mors than renav me. Jf vnti vrill ' 'In what way, myVenerous and brave vr-.r 'lit t-.nv proiwr. uiiuJ.u?Uui...i;w..1 11 you asK it.' v I have wealth enoogt of my own,' said Ralph ; ' but, he added, taking her band in his own, if you wculd bicome my bride, Nettie, I would ask no better happiness than to be your protector tbrotgh life. Will you?' . Nettie Wilbur looked up in lis face a mo ment earnestly, and replied, 'Is !' V They were visited by tbe vCge clergy man, and the next day they wire on their journey to Brooklyn. The fanulf- of Ralph Manners welcomed the stranger bride ; and she never has regretted the daywhen she gave her he-rt, hand and fortun to the 'Midnight Gct-t.
