Who shall say that the army is_ not popular with ladies ? There is a private stationed at the Cape who has convincing proof that the fair still love the brave, or at any rate wish to be married to them. This warrior some little time ago found himself “in want of a wife and, not being smitten with the charms of the Afrikander ladies, took the bold course of writing to the .Kingston Board of Guardians to request them to find a suitable belppieet for him. The letter was published by the Kingston officials, and no fewer than 192 applicants for the " situation” have been forthcoming. This is rather a sad story. It is sad because, polygamy being not yet lawful, 191 ladies must necessarily be disappointed. Moreover, the most cynical bachelor must pity the position of this Paris obliged to award the apple to one among such a galaxy of goddesses. The courage and judgment of the gallant private wi ! l evidently be severely tried. — St, James’s Budget. Balmy sleep, good digestion, rich blood, elastic step and cheerfulness in American Co.’s Hop Bitters. Read and believe.

I The Bad and Worthless are never imitated or counterfeited. This is especially true of a family medicine, and it is positive proof that the remedy imitated is of the highest value. As soon as it has been tested and proved by the whole world that Hop Bitters was the purest, best, and most valuable family medicine on earth, many imitations sprung up and began to steal the notices in which the press and the people of the country had expressed the merits of H. 8., and in every way trying to induce suffering invalids to use their stuff instead, expecting to make money on the credit and scad name of H. B. Many others started nostrums put up m similar style to H, 8., with variously devised names in which the word “Hop ” or “Hops wire used in a way to induce people to believe they were the same as Hop Bitters. All such pretended remedies or cures, no matter what tlibir stale or name is, and especially those withthlword “Hop” or “Hops m them name or in any way connected with them _or their name, are imitations or counterfeits. Beware of them. Touch none of them. Use nothing but genuine American Hop Bitters, ItUha-bonch or cluster of green Hops op me White label, and Dr Soule’s name blown in the glass. Trust nothing else.
