are grown in Germany, their vital principles
extracted in that country by a scientific
Chemist and forwarded to the manufactory in
this city, where they are compounded and
bottled. Containing no spirituous ingredi

urged against all others ; no desii e for stim

cannot make drunkards, and cannot, under
any circumstances, have any but a beneficial
effect. -
Hoofland's German Tonic
Was compounded for those nol inclined to
extreme bitters, and is intended for use in
cases when some alcoholic stimulant is re
quired in connection with the Tonic proper
ties of the Bitters. Each bottle of the Tor ic
contains one bottle ol the Bitters, combined
with pure Santa Crcz Rum, and flavored in
such a manner that the extreme bitterness ol
the Bitters is overcome, forming a prepara
tion highly agreeable and pleassnt to the pal
ate, and containing the medicinal virtues ol
the Bitters. The price ot the Tonic is SI. 50
per bottle, which many persons think too
high. They must takeinto consideration that
the stimulant used is guaranteed to be of a
pure quality. A poor article could be fur
nished at a cheaper price, but is it not better
to pay a little more and have a good article T
A medicinal preparation should contain none
but the best ingredients, and they who ex

certainly be cheated.

It is not necessary to take a handful ot

impurities. The principal ingreiient is Pod

For the Palladium.
It is only a mound in the wildwood,
With a white marble slab at its head,
But oft I have knelt there in childhood,
And wept o'er the beautiful dead.
The willow droops low o'er the marble.
The flowers wear a reverent air,
And the thrushes seem sad when they warble
For Winnie is slumbering there.
She was pure ss the dew on the mountain,
Or the scowfiake that melts in the stream,,
Or the silvery spray from the fountain,
That dies like a summer-night's dream ;
But they wanted an angel in heaven a
Tbey took her, and lett me alone;
Oh I why to the world was she given t
Sweet Winnie so sopn to be gone I
Hand in band , through the woods and mea
dows, To the moss-covered bridge by the mill,
In our playfulness chasing the shadows,
Or plucking the rose from the hill
Thus oft in the spring-time together,
The dews of tho morning we'd tread,
But we'll wander no more o'er the heather,
For Winnie loved Winnie is dead I
She sleeps 'neath the;trees in the wildwood,
Down 'neath the coffin-lid lies,
It closed o'er the loye of my childhood,
Bu. the love of my love never dies.
I've a curl from her silken tresses,
A circlet of gold lrom her hair ;
When sadness my spirit depresses,
It reminds me of Winnie so fair.
Dear Nellie, Sunday night you know,
I hadn't much to say,
And yet 'twas twelve o'clock or so
Before I went a.way ;
You saw that half the time I watched
The clock upon the shelf;
Oh, Nellie ! how I wished you might
See how it was yourself 1
I wanted so to tell you
What I've waited long to say,
But my heart and spirit failed me,
II y courage uied away ;
Now 4'ellie, only listen
You roguish little elf 1
I'm sure you'd pity me, at least,
If you knew how it was yourself !
Excuse me, Nellie, darling,
I've loved you long nnd well ;
Then let me k, epthis little hand,
Nor all my hopes disDel
I love you more than all Ihe world
Can give of power or pelf.
But words are weak when hearts would speak,

He lives in an old, brown nn
painied, one story house, near the
edge of the city the city of La
Crosse. Il waa not for the pur
pose of finding something to write
about that we visited him in his
Lome, but to collect a debt ; for
five years ago, soon after he was
niank'd, he borrowed of us one
hundred dollars with which to be
gin housekeeping. He then tho't
it wf re cheaper and better to keep
Louse than to board that he could
save more and do better if he only
had ti little stail.
One evening, almost five years
ego, with his young, bashful wife,
he called at our little 6anctum,
farther down town, hnd told his
story. Ha told it like a mn, with
no whining or hesitancy. Told his
hopes his plans, his wants and
determination By trade a car
penter, he intended to. work his
way to position and in time to earn
a home where he could live, raise
his family, and enjoy life in a ra
tional manner.
He was to psy us in a year.
Twelve months went by, and he
wanted us to wait another year.
To this request earnestly made we
could not say nay When came
tbe ena of the second year, he
could not pay, and he asked for
more time, which was grunted.
When came Ihe third jenr. he
could not nav. and we wrote him a
sharp note which we now wish had
mat r teen written.
To this he plead inability, and
asked us to wait another year,
promising to reoav the loan at the
end of the year with interest. But
me lourtn year saw him no better
fff, so the account ran into the
filth year, now nearly ended.
Tuis t vening we called at his
house. He was there, weary with
the labor of the week. On a bed
in one corner of the dining-room
and bed-room in one, lay his eick
wile, while two little children, in
need of a mo'her's care, tried to
hide behind each other as if afraid.
On a cheap pine table sat a market
basket with a soup-bone, a loaf of
bread and five little parcels in
brown paper. He had been hold
ing his wife partly upright with
one arm, and turning the ttin pil
low on her bed as we entered the
room. A tired, heartsick, dis
couraged look was on his faee as
he stepped toward us shook hands
and asKed us to occupy one of the
six hard bottomed chairs in the
We went there to ask him to
pay his debt- When we looked
about his home at his little ones
but half clad at his sick wife at
his tired expression and poor
clothes, we felt ashamed, and told
him a great big lie. Said he, after
we had sat there a few moments :
lI suppose you have come for
your money that I owe you?'
'No oh. no! Walking out this
way, we just called to see how you
were getting along !'
Now that was a lie. A deliber
ate lie. When we started out it
was to collect a debt, but when we
saw how hard it was with him and
his, we forgot in which pocket his
note was placed, and felt that we
had no such errand there.
So we told him, and it seemed
ss if the debt was paid, somehow,
long ago.
I am so glad wife and I have
worried so much about it we are
glad to see you.'
Certainly the debt was paid
somehow, somewhere, in some way
and we felt ashamed to thitk we
ever started out to collect it.
A few moments in the house,
then we walked out and leaned
against the rickety fence, while he
told his story. 1 ran this way.
'I feel ashamed that I have not
paid you before, but I could not.
I do not drink, nor waste lime, nor
spend money foolishly. But we
have had bad luck. The first year
we were married I fell from a scaf
folding, and hurt me so I could
not work for seventeen weeks. It
was pretty tough to be idle so
long, and the expenses, instead of
being less, were more. I h:id a
doctor to pay, and medicines to
pay for. When I was able to go
to work I owed the doctor, the
druggie, and the grocer and the
butcher. Not much for a rich man
but it was a good deal to ea"h
when I had to pay it working by
the day, besides supporting my
When Eddie was born 1 was in
debt, and have been ever since.
His mother never has been real
well since. She had to work too
hard, and because we were not able
to hire a girl, she got up and went
to work too soon. It's pretty hard
to get along so, but she never mur
mured nor complained. I tell you
6he is a jewel. It is tough to see
her sick now. It is five months
since she has been able to walk
down town or to church. I take
care of her in the morning, then
hurry home at night to see to her.
and then have the house-work to
do after my day's work is doue.
She sews a little in bed, and looks
out for the children, and reads to
me Sundays whil I do the wa'h
ing, but it's not much pleasure we
have, only iu hoping the times will
be better with us some day. She
has not been well for three years.
Sometimes I cannot go to work,
then I lose time, but the expenses
keep up Just the same. Then I
can't get work all the time. And
three times I have been cheated
out of my pay . Seventy-one dol
lars at one time, thirty-four at an
other, and nineteen at another.
More than I owed you, in all ex
cept the interest.
'I've tried real hard and keep
trying. I have not spent a dime
in three years foolishly, only once,
when Mattie was sick I bought her
some oranges, but it seems as if I
ought to buy them for her. The
children looked so pitiful when I
gave them to her, that I gave each
of them one, and she went without.
She made me give them away.
Then I ran down town, alter the
children were in bed, and got her
three more.
Voa won't be ashamed of my
tears, for for for it makes my
heart ache to know how I could
make her better if I had only had
the money to buy little things
But a poor man a poor man who
has to work night and Hay, and
Sunday, and who has to buy every
thing in driblets and pay by pr fits,
can't expect to save money. Some
times I am discouraged. I have
owed you, and that bas bothered
me. It has bothered her too We
wanted to pay ; to bo out of debt,
even if we had nothing left, but
we couldn't set out We've had an
much hard luck we could not help
More ho told us, till it seemed
that we owed him. When we took
from his Hps the history of his life
and realized how hard it is lor a
poor man to ret ahead, when sick
ness overtakes him, and when rich
men who can pay do not, we felt
condemned to think we had ever
blamed him. We do not believe
that people think enough or do
enough for those who are unfortu
nate, and hereafter shall never
blame a person for doing thi or
that, or for not doing sonaetfrinjr,
till we know something of ths rea
son or the cause at the bottom of
it all. It is terrible to do injus
tice. To-night a good friend of ours
sent to the little brown house a
basket of oranges, and other things
for the sick. And in the basket,
pinned fast to a big orange, was an
envelope, with a piece ot pnper
covered with words and figures,
out into little pieces. One cloud
will be lifted from that sick room,
and the little ones who wondered
at the coming of a strange man

The Old Tactics of the South.
Mr. Jefferson Davi9, the Ex-Pres
ident of the defunct Confederacy,
in his speeches at Atlanta and Au
gusta, recommends the following
course to tbe white men of the
South. Speaking of a time to
come when the North shall bo di
vided in its politics, as it used to
be before the war, he says:
And when the hour comes then
will come tho fulfillment of the
promised era of constitutional lib
erty, which I so confidently antic
ipate and hope for to-day.' I may
not live to see it: but if I do not
I shall die confidently believing
that it will rome. I know, my
friends, that in this I run counter
to the feelings that are prevalent
in different portions of our coun
try, but I believe this is tho true
policy for he South to pursue at
present. Tho South can not has
ten the day of her deliverar.ee by
attempting to assume a lending
part in the politics of the country
to day. Let her people quieily
and- earnt stiy devote themselves to
the work of improving and build
ing up iheir material prosperity,
leavii g those who have the power
to settle thee questions amonr
themselves, simply sayinsr to them,
"We know our rights know they
are invadi'd," aud then wait pal
tiently until we see them divided
and at issue with themselves, and
join the party and support the can
didate and the platform that prom
ises a restoration of constitutioual
liberty. It is then that you will
lold the balance of political power
in your own hands, and it is then
that all your rights will once more
be restored ami guaranteed "
The Toledo Blade says that this

English, that the South is to re
sume, at the earliest possible day,
its old trtclics of dividing the
North, and hold itself as a com
pact, uni ed body, holding the bal
ance of power between two avari
cious, grasping, ofBce-lovine par
ties at the North. Let the Demo
cratic party gain strength in the
North, and the South will control
in its councils. No raaUer in what
way, or by what deceits the Demo
cratic party tains control, the
South will attain its ends through
it. The old tactics are to be re
sumed, and the old oligaichs ol
secess on, who 6hould have been
hung for treason and other high
crimes, once more rule the country
wi.h a rod of iron.
It may be that the Davis party
in the South for he is once more
a leader in the South do not pro
pose the re-establishment of sla
very, or the re-assertion of the
rights of States to secede. They
may not mean war, at least for a
generation to come but they do
mean to rule in the South and to
have things their own wav at both
the South aid the North. We
must not allow this. The rule of
the old oligarchy lo power means
the reitm of the same d-Rniiam

days of slavery Mr Jeff Davis
lorwams us that they intend to di

The new tactics have begun in
Ohio. The "new departure" tells
us that the D. mocracy has c n
sented finally that the amendments
shall not be disturbed. The by
cones mu.'t be by-gones. The
Democracy will fight us on the dd
finance, tai itf, etc., and on the new
question of Sau Domingo But
ttie old war is ended. For ten
years they hoped to beat us on that
issue and wear out our patience
But I hey nowdesp iirof iat, and
hence they ostensibly adopt our
platform in order to divide us on
subsidiary questions. That ence
accoropiishe f nnd the strength or
the Republican party broken, the
South by its compactness will
carry all its measures whatever the
breach of faith that may involve.
This state of things will divide
the Democratic party in factions
one to sympathise with the South
and the other to have some regard
lor fidelity to pledges made to the
people of the North. Then the
South will sweep all by its com
pact energy, and not a generation
will elapse until tbe old terror will
be restored, and the republic once
more be in a hand to band strug
gle with despotism and treason.

Payment of Smali Bills. The
payment of small hills, such ss
newspaper subscriptions, is a mat
ter ot more importance than is
usually attached to it. There are
not a few who, in times when busi
ness is a little depressed, and tbe
prospects for the future seem more
than usually unsettled, will hold
on to their cash in hand, tell all
the collectors who wait on them
with overdue bills to "call agtln,"
while tbe payment would not give
them any serious inconvenience,
and would' accommodate a large
and deserving class of creditors.
Indeed, we know nothing that in
a quiet way would go so far to
give animation in tbe markets
throughout the country as the uni
versal fulfillment of the ob igation
at the first opportunity. If all the
little debts, lor the discharge of
which the debtors now have tbe
cash actually in hand, were naid at
umce, the wheels of business would

The firfct serious effect on trade of
any public excitement comes from
the 6udden check of those little
streams. It is true, the large
transactions are arrested, but if
everybody went on paying those
little debis the check would be
momentary, as business would be
forced along by the current thus
continually renewed. Let every
one whose eyes tall on these lines
pay, out bis ready money for bills
he knows to be due, and stop not
until bis pockets be emptied.
Probably before this is realized the
return curient will reach his pack
ets too, and he will be able to fill
all his obligations. There is as
much money as ever. Whj' stop
its flow ? Let it move on by a
prompt payment of bills now due,
and new business will catch the
inspiration and start off on a fresh
gallop. New Rochelle Pioneer.
