EVENING STAR THE SLEEPING CHILD. BT LBIGH HV1T. A brook went dancing on its way, From bank to valley leaping, And by It* sonnv margin lay, A lovely infant sleeping. The murmur of the purling stream Broke not the spell which bound him, Like music breathing in hit dreaiu, A lullaby around him. ^ It I? a lovely spot to view \N ithin this world of sorrow, * One spot which still retains the hue That earth from heaven may borrow; And such was this?a scene so fair Arrayed in Summer brightness, And one pure being resting there, One soul of radiant whiteness ! "What happy dream*, fair child, are given, _To cast their sunshine o'er thee ? What cord unites thy sonl to heaven, W Lerts visions glide before thee ? For wandering smiles of cloudless mirth O er thy features beaming. Say not a thought?a form of earth Alloys thy hour of dreaming ! ?l"ep. lovely bat>e !?for time's cold touch, Shall make these visions wither: Youth ;?nd dreams which charm so much Shall fade and fly together. Then sleep: while sleep is pure and mild, Ere earthly ties grow stronger, W'h?-n thou shall no more a child, And dream of Heaven no longer.

Dr. C. M. Jack?on, Philadelphia?Dear Sir : I bave been a subject of Dyspepsia, in its worst form, for th" last live years. Such was my condi tion for twelve months that the physicians and all who saw me said I must die. While in this con dition 1 was carried to the watering places in Vir ginia. Tennessee, and North Carolina, but was not benefitted by any water to which I was taken. While on my way home 1 stopped a week at Ruth erford'on. a" small village in North Carolina, to try the effect of some Chalybeate water in that pface. About the last of the week I went into a drug store to get some medicine for mv child and myself. There were several of the village physi cians in the store, and one of them seemed to take some interest in my case. and. after asking me some questions, said he had l?een a dyspeptic and hnd l>een greatly benefitted bv the use of HOOF LAND'S GERMAN BITTERS, prepared by you. and he insisted that 1 would try the Bitters. He also called the next day at my room, and in sist?*d so much that I would try them that I asked him to get me one bottle. He did it, and I com menced taking it as directed, and 1 was more l>en etitted by it than all the water and medicine I had ever taken. After reaching home one of my neighbors came to me for a prescription and medicine, (he a dys peptic.) and 1 gave him nearly all the Bitters I Lad left, which eflected much good in his case. He has often called on me for more of the same kind of medicine, saying he was more benefitted by it than any other he had taken, but I have not b?-en able to get any more for him or myself since; will you. therefore, please ship me a dozen or more as soon as possible.
