A Romance. —An incident which would suffice to supply Ouida with the groundwork of a novel romantic as “Idalia,” occurred in the neighborhood of Marton a short time since, if wo may believe the local paper. Two young equestriennes wore travelling late in the evening near an outstation, and lost their way. After some weary riding, they espied a light and made towards it, and were met at the gate by a homely looking lady, who proved to bo the housekeeper. Upon inquiry, they found themselves at the station of two young gentlemen who were reputedly very rich—and bachelors ! There was no alternative but to accept the proffered hospitality, which they did with seeming reluctance. Need we say that they and their kind young hosts enjoyed a sociable evening in the erstwhile dull home of the bachelors? In the morning, they were not only shown the road, but escorted to their destination, when formal introductions led to—well, a dual marriage is said to be on the tapis.
Holloway's Fills. —These Pills are more efficacious in strengthening a debilitated constitution than any other medicine in the world. Persons of a nervous habit of body, and all who are suffering from weak digestive organs, or- whose health has become deranged by bilious affection, disordered stomach, or liver complaints, should lose no time in giving these admirable Pills a fair trial. Coughs, colds, asthma, or shortness of breath are also within the range of the sanative powers of this very remarkable medicine. The cures effected by these Pills are not superficial or temporary, but complete any permanent. They are as mild as they are efficacious, and may be given with confidence to delicate females and young children. Their action on the liver, stomach, and bowels is immediate, beneficial, and lasting, restoring order and health in every case.— Advt
