,/n ith Had raa «rer a cousin, Tom T Did jour oousia happen to slug ? «■Mss we're aHbj tbs dosen, Tom, But a cousin's n different thing, A.d you'd find, if ever jou'd kiss'd her Tom, (Though let this be n secret between ns) That jour lips would hare been la a blister, Tom, For thej are not of the titter genus. something, Tom, In n sister's lip, jo* giro ner n good-nighLkiss, Thut tarots so much of relationship, That nothing occurs amiss. But a cousin's up if jou once unite With jours in the quietest way, Instead of steeping a wink that night Ton'll be dreaming the following day. And people think It no harm, Tom, With a cousin to hear you talk ; And no one feels any alarm, Tom, tWeta When qf At > quiet cousinly walk. Bat, Tom, you'U find, what I happen to know, That such walks often go into straying, And the rakes of cousins are sometimes so low, Uearen only knows what you'll be saying l And there happens so often, Tom, Soft pressure of hands and fingers, And looks that were moulded to soften, Tom, And tones on which memory lingers, That long ere your walk is half over, the strings , Of your heart are put into play, By the voice of those demi-sisterly things In not quite the most brotherly way. And the songs of a sister bring to you, Tom, Such tones as the angels woo, But I fear if your cousin should sing to you, Tom, You'd take her for an angel too. For so curious a note is that note of theirs That you'd fancy the voice that gave it Had been all the time singing national airs Instead of the Psalms of David. I once had a cousin that sung, Tom, And her name may be nameless now, But the sound of those songs is still young, Tom, Though we are no longer so. 'Tis folly to dream of a bower of green, When there's not a leaf on the tree, Bot twixt walking and singing, that cousin has been, God forgive her, the ruin of me. of And now I care nought for society, Tom. And lead such an anchorite life, For I have loved myself into sobriety, Tom. And oat of the wish for a wife. But oh ! if I said but half what I might say, So sad were the lesson 'twould give, That 'twould keep you from loving for And from cousins as long as you live. many a (Dur (Dlio. , Matbimonial Lottery. —A short time siDoe, at a wedding in South Carolina, a young lawyer moved that one man in the company should be selected as president, that this president should be duly sworn to keep entirely secret all the communica tions that should be forwarded to him in his official department that night, that each unmarried gentleman and lady should write his or her name on a piece of paper, and under it place the name of the person they wished to marry, then hand it to the ' preeident for inspection, and if any gentle man and lady had reoiprocally"chosen each other the president was to inform each of the result, aud those who had not been oiproeal in their choiee were to be kept tirely secret. After the appointment of the president, communications were accor dingly handed np the chair, and it found that twelve vonng ladies and gentle men had reciprocal choices, and eleven of the twelve matches were solemnised. Lit the young ladies and gentlemen try it here. a re cn I U Tha word "baskin," as used in connec tion with the theatrical profession, is the translation of the Greek and Latin word ••Cothurnus," which signifies a high-heel ad boot or shoe, used by the Greek and Roman tragic actors to give an appearance of elevation to their stature, in conjunction with the mask and other stage properties. "Cothurnus," in Latin, is used in contra distinction to "Soccus," the flat-soled shoe worn by comedians. Hence, in English authors, the word "sock" and "buskin" are often used for the purpose of distin guishing the tragic and comic drama. Thus wrote Dryden : ''Great Fletcher never treads in buskin here, Nor greater Jonson dares in Bocks appear." It is related of a certain minister, who wu noted for his long sermons, with tty divisions, that one day when he was ad vancing among the teens, he reached, at length, a kind of resting place in his dis course, when pausing to take breath, he asked the question, "And what shall I say more ?" A voice from the congregation responded, "Say Amen!" ma Mrs. Matton is advertising herself in an Iowa paper as an "attorneyess-at-law." GREAT DISTRIBUTION BY The Metropolitan Gift Company.

Hoofland'a German Tonic Is a combination of all the ingredients ef the Bitters, with the purest quality of Rum. Orange, Ac. making one of the most pleas ant and agreeable remedies ever offered to the public. Those preferring a Medicine free from Alcoholic admixture, will use Hoofland's German Bitters. Those who have no objection to the combina tion of the Bitters, as stated, will use HOOFLAND'S GERMAN TONIC Santa Cruz They are both equally good, and contain the same medicinal vutuos, the choice between the two being a mere matter of taste, the Tonic being the most palatable. The stomach, from a variety of causes such as Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Nervous Debility, etc. is very apt to have its functions deranged. The Liver, sympathizing as closely as it does with thé Stomach, then becomes affected, the result of which is the patient suffers from several or of the following diseases : Constipation, Flatulence, Inward Piles, Fulness of Blood to the Head, Acidity of the Stom ach, Nausea, Heartburn. Disgust for Food, Fulness or Weight in the Stomach, Sour Eructations, Sinking or Fluttering at the Pit of the Stom ach, Swimming of the Head, Hur ried or Difficult Breathing, Fluttering at the Heart, Choking or Suffocating Sensations when in a Lying Posture, Dimness of Vision, Dots or Webs before the Sight, Dull Pain in the Head, Deficiency of Perspiration. Yellowness of the Skin and Eyes, Pain in the Side, Back, Cheat. Limbs etc. Sudden Flushes of Heat, Burning in the Flesh, Con stant Imaginings of Evil, and Great Depression of Spirits. The sufferer from these diseases should extstfos the greatest caution in the selection.«!' a remedy for his case purchasing qn.py Vifit which he is ai sured from hi$ ia\estigatious and inquiries, pos tr V.v- merit, is skilfully compounded, is free from injurious ingredients, and has established for itself a reputation for the cure of these diseas es. In this connection we would submit those well-known remedies— Hoofland's German Bitters, AND Hoofland's German Tonio . PREPARED BY DR. C. M. JACKSON, PHILADELPHIA, PA. Thirty-five years since they were first intro duced into this country from Germany, during which time they have undoubtedly performed more cures, and benefited suffering immunity to a greater extent than any other remedies known to the public. These remedies will effectually cure Liver Com plaint, Jaundice, Dyspepsia, Chronic or Nervous Debility, Chronic Diarrhoea, Diseases of the Kid neys, and all Diseases arising from a disordered Liver' Stomach or Intestines. DEBILITY. Resulting from any cnusc whatever ; prostra tion of the system, induced by severe labor, hurd -hips, exposure, fevers *c. There is no medicine extant equal to these rem edies in such cases. A tone and vigor is impart ed to the whole system, the appetite is strength ened, food is enjoyed, the stomach digests pro perly, the blood is purified, the complexion ité rantes sound and healthy, the yellow tinge is eradicated from the eyes, a bloom is given to the cheeks, aud the weak nnd nervous invalid be comes a strong and healthy being. Persons advanced in life and feeling the hand of 11 me weighing heavily upon them, with all its attendant ills, will find in the use of this Bitters or the Tonic, an elixir that will instill new life into their reins, restore in a measure the energy and ardor of more youthful days, build up their shrunken forms, and give health and happiness to their remaining years. NOTICE. It is a well established fact that fully one-half of the female portion of our population are seldom the enjoyment of good health, or, to use their own expression, "jnever feel well." They are languid, devoid of all euergy, extremely nervous and have no appetite. To this class of persons the Bitters, or the Tonic is especially recommended. WEAK AND DELICATE CHILDREN Are mad. strong by the use of either of these remedies. They will cure every case of Maras mus without fail. TESTIMONIALS. Hon. Geo. W.
