L. R. CuRTIS, Clerk.
[t Dr. Hoofland's German Bittrs,
prepared by Dr. C. M. Jackson, are
justly reckoned amongst our most valu
able medicines. In cases of dyspepsia,
it acts like magic, strengthening the
tone of the stomach, stimulatiug the
digestive powers, and giving ruddy
health to the cheek and brightness to
the eye. There are thousands in this
community who can testify to their vir
tues, and thousands will hereafter add
their testimony.
Obituary.
DIED-At Point Clear, on the 11th instant,
Mas. ELIZA JANE, wife, and CAROLINE ZA.
LINA, eldest daughter of William Hall, by acci
dental drowning.
The following are the circumstances of this
melancholy occurrence, as related by the Mobile
Advertiser :
Mrs. Joseph and Wm. Hall, of that city, had
been stopping at the Point for some time past,
and went that night, about half-past 9 o'clock, as
usual, to bathe. The first named of the two la
dies, with her children and servant, was dress
ing, when she was startled by hearing a loud
and piercing scream. The cry proceeded from
the daughter of Mrs. W. Hall, a child of eleven
years, who had got beyond her depth. Her mo
ther, who was still in the water, hastened to her
assistance, when she also got into deep water, and
both were drowned before assistance could be
procured. Mr. Hall, who was at the hotel at the
time, became almost frantic when informed of the
sad event. Mrs. Hall was an estimable lady, and
leaves a large family to mourn her loss.
