The B^qik.?The most sensible and
graceful style ever adopted by woman,
lor dressing her charms corporate, is that
of the ba&tjue and skirt. Deny it as
aucianl ladies way, there is a point, de
fined every day by affectionate husbands,
loyinj brothers, and accepted lovers,
with an encircling arm, which forms a
natural division of tfce dress of a woman.
The waist is one and the skirt is ano
ther. No angel should ever deform a
waist? no point behind, or point before
The rounded outline above and below
the natural point of cincture should be
preserved, and no contrivance hat
ever done it^o well as the ba-sque.
_ .Besides, it gives an opportunity for
any required contrast or harmony in the
skirt, stopping stripes at the point where
they ought to btop, and breakiug up,

to be helped troin my bed and dreo-x d in my clothe*
I became reduced to a iu*r> skeleton. All the med
icines I took done nie no good, and 1 continued to
*nrv worse. I heard of HamptonTincture and
thought I wonhl give h a trial. At thi? time I did
not espect to live one day afW another. I did not
take it (the Tincture! for the Rheumatiam. hut in
