Something About Cub«.
Cuba is the largest and most valuable
of all the West India Islands. Its form
is that of an irregular crescent, curving
southward. It lies south of the Southern
States, between 74° and 83° west longi
tude, and 19° and 28° north latitude. A
curving line running through its centre,
east and west, would measure nearly eight
hundred miles ; and its greatest breadth
about one hundred miles. Estimates of
its extent vary from thirty-three to forty
seven thousand square miles,—enough for
five or six States as large in territory
Massachusetts. Inhere id a ridge of
tains running east and west, of considera
elevation, which furnish an ample supply
of water for various streams that flow into
the ocean north and south. Havana, its
principal city, has a population of about
200,090. It is situated on the north side
of the island, facing the United States,
and lias one of the finest harbors in the
world, with a narrow entrance defended
by the celebrated Moro Castle, and other
fortifications, and large enough to accom
modate a thousand ships with deep water.
The population of Cuba in 1
years ago,—was 1,860,000. Gold and
silver, and copper to some extent,
mined in the interior of the island ; but it
has a far greater and richer wealth in its
agricultural productions—its sugars, cof
fer, tobacco, and tropical fruits. The
latest reliable estimate that wo remember
to have seen, divided the agricultural in
dustry of the island into 1442 sugar es
tates, 1718 coflea estates, and 993 grazing
farms on which nearly a million of cattle
are reared.— Worcester Palladium.

two being a mere matter of taste, the Tonic being
the most palatable.
The stomach, from a variety of causes such as
Indigestion, Dysjiepsia, Nervous Debility, etc. is
very apt to have its functions deranged. The

Hoofland's German Bitters,
AND
Hoofland's German Tonic
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 humanity 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 cause whatever; prostra
tion of the system, induced by severe labor, hard
ships, exposure, fevers Ac.
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 be
comes sound and healthy, the yellow tinge is
eradicated from the eyes, a bloom is given to the
cheeks, and the weak and nerv
comes a strong and healthy being.
Persons advanced in life and feeling the hand of
time 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 veins, 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.

TESTIMONIALS.
Hon. Geo. W. Woodward,
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Pa. writes :
Philadelphia, March 16, 1867.
} And Iloofland's German Bitters is a good
tonic, useful in the diseases of the digestive or
gans, and of great benefit in cases of debility, and
want of nervous action in the system.
Yours, truly, GEO. W. WOODWARD."
Hon. James Thompson,
Court of Pennsylvania.
Philadelphia, April 28, 1866.
I consider "Hoofland's German Bitters" a
valuable medicine in case of attacks of Indigestion
or Dyspepsia. I can certify this from
perience of it. Yours, with respect,
JAMES THOMPSON.

Pastor of the Tenth Diptiel Church, Philadelphia.
Dr. Jackson, —Dear Sir: I have been fre
quently requested to connect my name with re
commendations of different kinds of medicines
but regarding the practice ns out of my appro^
priate sphere, I have in all cases declined ; but
with a clear proof in various instances, and par
ticularly in my own family of the use of Dr
floofland's German Bitters, I depart for
from my usual course, to express my full
viction that, for general dchility of the system ~anrl
especially for Liver Complaint, it is a safe anti
valuable preparation. In some cases it may fail •
but usually, l doubt not, it will be very iicnefi
cial to those who suffer from the above causes.
Yours, very respectfully,

From Rev. E. D. Fendall,

I have derived decided benefit from the use of

to all who are suffering from general debility or
from diseases arising from derangement of the
