T.i iir-.i.iy tfsraiitg. January 13, IsTH. FISOLAT VS. MI LL. The Twentieth Senatorial IMstrlet Wis fraurhhrd. Trickfrr. Frami anl Corruption. "Our t'OßKmwnMa" has a finsrer In the i Fie. At the opening of the legislature, on Tue day, Ith in-t., when the Twenti- i eth Senatorial District was called, the j Clerk of the Senate read the certificate of Hiram Find lay, as Senator elect for j the District, and also laid before the j Senate a paper signed by W. C. Hicks, ofSomerset county, purporting to be a <. rtificate of the election of Edward Scull. Mr. Wallace moved that Hiram Find lay be sworn as the sitting Sena- i tor, which motion was lost, all the radical Senators, save Mr. Dowry, of j Erie, voting against it. Mr. White j moved to refer the papers in the case j to a special committee with authority to inquire into the facts and to report to the Senate within sixty days. Mr. Dowry, radical, denounced this course j as an outrage, an attempt to do a great wrong not only to Mr. Findlay, the Senator elect, hut to the people of the I Twentieth District who would lie w ith ont representation in the Senate. He said that there were two papers present ed ;o the Senate, one regular and legal in every respect, showing the election of Hiram Findlay; the other irregular, j invalid, amounting to nothing more j than a communication from a single; individual, certifying the election of Mr. Scull. The Senate could easily de- j termine, from these papers, whether Mr. Findlay or Mr. Scull is entitled to tin- -eat prima facie. He added that the rejection of Mr. Findlay's certificate would bring odium on the radical or ganization and he would not he a party to such partisan work. But Mr. Dow ry'- political associates turned a deaf ear to his counsel, and Mr. White's motion was adopted by a vote of 17 to i 16. Such a proceeding was never he fore attempted in either branch of the legislature. No committees have ever before been appointed to revise the action of a board of district return judges, as all committees on contested j seats must be drawn by lot, according to law, and not appointed, as this one was, by a partisan presiding officer. m criuay ia-r. me cuuiunue projierly styled a committee to invent an excuse for swindling Hi ram. Findlay out of his seat in the Senate made a report. Two of the three members of the committee, both bitter and unscrupulous radicals, re ported in favor of giving the seat, prima facie , to Mr. Scull, on the ground that the vote of Allegheny t iwo-hip, Somerset county, which gave Mr. Findlay a majority of 40 vote-, could rmt be counted. The other member of the committee nude a report declaring Mr. Findlay enti tled to the seat. A debate aroceon the -abject, during which Senator Wallace made a clear and powerful argument in fa voi of Mr. Findiav's right to the seat, the strong point on which was that the two papers construed togeth er showed that Hiram Findlay has a majority of all the votes cast in the dis trict. There was a flutter among the radical Senator-. Mr. Dowry again announced liis conviction that Mr. Findlay was entitled to the -eat. Mr. Graham, of Allegheny, said he was not yet prepared to vote on the ques tion. There were unmistakeahlesigns of demoralization on the radical sideof the Senate. Mr Dowry and the dem ocratic Senators urged an immediate vote, hut more time was desired by the radicals and the matter went over until Tuesday evening of this week. We are not advised, at this writing, what lias been the result of the strug gle. One thing is certain, the seat can not be given to Scull without the de liberate disfrnnehisment of the votes of Allegheny township, Somerset county. We will do Mr. Scull the justice to say that we are convinced that he is not making this light of his own mo tion. He has been dragged into the contest by John Cessna and a few oth er hangers on of the radical party who are personally interested in his obtain ing the seat. When the nomination of Alexander Siut/.man, last autumn occasioned a disturbance in the radical ranks, Cessna determined to take ad vantage of the state of affairs, by com pelling Stutzman to withdraw and nominating Scull in his stead, so that the latter might resign his office of A—essorof Internal Revenue, a po sition which Ce-sna desires to confer on a certain radical politician of Frank lin county, with a view of purchasing the future support of hi- party in that county. It will ho recollected that Cessna rati nearly 300 votes behind his ticket in Franklin, at tlie election in 18CS. He fear-a similar result at the coming election and hence his anxiety to make a Senator of Scull in order that he may u-e the Assessnrship of Internal Revenue as a bribe to recon cile the recalcitrants in that county.— In pursuance of his plan, Oessnacaused a meeting between Stutzman, Scull and himself to take place in Philadel phia, in the latter part of September last, whereat it was agreed by these high contracting parties that Stutzman should withdraw and Scull assume his place on the radical ticket, whilst Cessna was to be afforded an opportu i nity to farm out the Assessorship for his own personal benefit. This cor rupt bargain was ratified by the radi ical standing committees of the sever al counties composing this Senatorial district, the voters of the party never having been consulted at all in regard tothis Philadelphia nomination. Aud j now Hiraui Findlay is to be made the . victim of this foul conspiracy and the I will of the people of the counties of Bedford, Fulton and Somerset is to be set at naught, in order that John Cess na may be permitted to swap the As | sessorship of Internal Revenue for the j support of a few disaffected radicals in ; Franklin county. If the majority of J the Senate are really base enough to i carry out this infamous programme, j the people possess no remedy except i I the rebuke which they may adrninis- ; terto its authors at the polls. No de ; cent man, no upright citizens, will fail to apply it. THE TBITII AT EAST. Whenever some peculiar mischief is meditated in reference to the people of the South, it is the cue of the radical : press to invent some tale of horror con- i cerning their social condition. If "re-j construction" is to pass through a sec- J j ondproeessofcongressional distillation, j astory of the murder of a negro or two is j concocted; if the second reconstruction ; is to be doubly refined, a romance con- j cerning the assassination of a "white ; loyalist" is invented; and so on to the end of the chapter of pretexts for con- ' gressional interference with the rights of the people and the States. Asa- ; 1 trap by the name of Reynolds, who j has for some time held -way in Texas, j seems, however, to have come to the conclusion that his party have practic- j ed about long enough on the credulity ot the Northern people. In a report made to the President, bearing date Nov. 29, 1869, we find the following: "After a careful examination of all j the evidence I have been able to ; collect from official reports, and the • statements of officers and citizens ; unbiased by partisan feelings, I am ; forced to the conclusion that the a- j mount of crime committed in thesev- j eral States of the division is very lit- j tie greater than before the rebellion, j .oriulnly vins ml gurnltr Uii> j reasonably to tie expected at the close j of an embittered and prolonged civil j war, when large numbers of lawless and desperate characters, both at the j North and in the South, were turned loose upon society without any legiti mate meads of support. Certain dis tricts of country may, and probably j do, form exceptions to this general re mark ; but even of these exceptional eases very few have any partisan char- , acter or political significance. Those who murder and rob, do so simply as | murderers and robbers, influenced by, the motives which ordinarily incite men to commit these crimes. One of the worst desperadoes in Kentucky served in the Union army during I the war; but he and his band now rob and murder rebelsand loyalists, as may best suit their purposes, at one time claiming to lie Kuklux.andat anoth ior to beanti-KukluXh Although there may be special organizations of outlaws, in particular localities, under the name of Kuklux, I am of the opinion that no such general organization now exists i in the Southern States. It is probable, however, that outlaws not unfrequent ly assume this name in order to intim idate tiie weak and credulous, espeeiai j ly when calculated to increase their ' own importance. "In regard to the interference of mil ; itary officers in local difficulties under ■ the plea of maintaining peace and good ; order, I think that no such military in terference should be permitted, except t on the requisition of the Governor of a ! State, and by order oft lie President, as I provided by law. The principal occu ! pation of the troop-, in certain locali ties. has been assisting revenue officers to execute the revenue laws. It is ve | ry natural that these officers should ! call for the assistance of troops whenev j or they can get it, for by this means I they avoid danger and trouble, and in ; crease their own emoluments at the ex pense of military appropriations." Besides exploding the absurd inven- I tions concerning organized bands of | desperadoes, said to plunder and kill ' only their political opponents, General ! Reynolds opens the eyes of his party friends to the existence of a fact in eon ; nection with the occupation of the | army in the Southern States, which ought to startle them not a little.— The troops are principally occupied in assisting Internal Revenue officers, j who make it a point to call on them for aid, not merely to ensure their own | personal safety, but to enable them to turn an honest penny by saving the j expense which would come out of their own pockets if they performed ! their duties in person! It seems then, that the large portion of our standing army which is now stationed | in the Southern States, is simply the | posse of Internal Revenue officers who get handsome salaries for the work performed by their military assistants. This faet is but another argument in favor of a plan by which the federal ; taxes would lie apportioned to the several State- and the several State , governments allowed to assess and ! collect them in their own way. The . attention of some of our vigilant arul ! thoughtful democratic reformers in i Congress, 1 called to this report of I Gen. Reynolds. The opportunity af forded by its publication should not pass unimprovi d. Congress reassembled on Monday i last. THE MESSAGE OF GOV. GKARV. The annual message of Gov. Geary, which appears in our columns this week, will be read with great inter est. On the whole it is a statesman- like aud sensible document, and his opponents will readily overlook some crude suggestions concerning national politics, in their warm appreciation of his bold, frank and emphatic recom mendations in regard to the manage ment of the State finances. The chiefs of the Treasury combination will de rive very small consolation from the perusal of tins document. Having en tered on a second and last term of ex ecutive office, Governor Geary mani fests a strong purpose to cut loose from the selfish politicians who contributed so much to bring his former adminis tration into disrepute. The message shows a determination to rely on the intelligence and patriotism of the peo ple rather than longer trust to the cor rupt agents of "political intrigue." On the subject of State finances, a plain and -u -einct statement of their condition is presented. The public debt at the close of the fiscal year, amounted to $32,814,540 95cents. The reduction during the year amounts to $472,406 18. The vicious and corrupt system under which the public funds are managed are exposed in the follow ing vigorous and truthful paragraph, to which we call the earnest attention of the reader. I beg once more to remind the Legis lature that the salary of the State Treas urer should at least be equal to that of the Governor. It is only seventeen hundred dollars, a sum entirely insuf ficient to command the services of any responsible man, who is required to furnish a bond with good and appro ved securities, for eighty thousand dol lars, and to run the risk of handling at least five or six million of dollars per annum, without the unlawful use of the State funds, and subsidies from sour ces that dare not be revealed to the public, because they are positively pri - hibited by law, under penalties \>f no ordinary magnitude. Yet there are but few men who have held this office, however poor they may have been when they took charge of it, who have not become rich. There is certainly some advantage to be gained by the holding of the position of State Treas urer, unknown to the public, but which readily accounts for the disgraceful scramble, and for the political and mor al debauchery which the people of this Slateseem to be doomed annually to witness, in the election of that officer; and because of the disgrace it brings upon their representatives, the people hang their heads in indignation and shame. Then, in th name of he good people of Pennsylvania, ! call upon the members of the legislature to rise a bove the murkiness of the polluted at mosphere of the past, to the true digni ty of manhood and exalted patriotism, ■<nii purity the election of Treasury, as will as that of every other officer with in this Commonwealth, and punish ev ery one who tampers with the purity of elections, whatever may be his position or pretentions. This is not the invective of demo cratic newspapers, but the delit>era!e and careful official language of the chief magistrate of the Commonwealth. When he declares that few inen hold ing the office of State Treasury, in lat ter years, have failed to enrich them selves with the public spoils, he states what has been repeated in a thousand forms in all the newspapers of the Com monwealth. This solemn official re cognition of the shameful fact that tie nrj >ney in lhe treasury has been u-ed f>r years as a fund to debauch the leg islature, cannot fail to arrest the deep est attention, and quicken the resolve that a thorough reform in the manage ment of the finances shall be made. GovernorGeary states in round numbers the amount of that unexpected bal ance which is employed by the Treas urer in private speculations and in cor rupting the representatives of the peo ple. He owes it now to the citizens of the Commonwealth, as well as to his own reputation as an executive, that the reforms which he has indicated shall be introduced in the government of the State. He has accomplished but half his duty in pointing out the weak places in the system. His second administration will be an un happy failure if he shall neglect to bring all his legitimate influ ence to bear in repelling the evils of Which he gives so vivid a description in his message. If he content himself merely with this paper pellet at the ring, lie will have accomplished just a bout as much as Peter.Van C'orlear did in his famous war by proclamation a gainst the Swedes. Unless he shall sustain himself by staunch, able and fearless advocates of reform, in the leg islature, and give them the support of his administration, all the recommend ations of his message will be forgotten in nine days, and the next three years of his executive career will besignalized by the same disgraceful scenes at the Capitol which have marked the first three years of his term. The London Economist and the Spec tator ay some very rabid things of our two eminent financiers, Messrs. Bout well and Grant. Reviewing the fiscal schemes of those gentlemen, as develop ed in their late reports to Congress, the Economist indulges in such terms as "simplicity," "display of ignorance," "remarkable blundering," "ignorance could hardly be exceeded," and the Spectator calls Mr. Boutwell "a child in political economy" and "idiotic." The fifteenth amenduienf was repu diated by both branches of the New York Legislature on the Ith lust. In the Senate Mr. Tweed's resolution to rescind was adopted, iy a vote of 16 tQ 13, and in the Assembly by 69 to 06— a strict party division. In accordance with tie provisions of the Constitution of the State of Penn sylvania, the Legislature of the Com monwealth met at noon on Tuesday, the 4th inst. The Republicans being in a majority in each House, the or ganization was effected by the election of the candidates for officers of that party on the first ballot. Charles H. Stinson was elected Speaker of the Senate and Geo. W. Hammersly, Chief Clerk. The House organized by elect ing B. B. Strang, of Tioga, Speaker and Gen. Selfridge, Chief Clerk. R. A. Maekey, the present incumbent was elected State Treasurer. All these elections are a complete triumph for the "Ring," and show that that cor rupt combination intend to repeat the outrages of last winter. Honesty will be at a discount, and vice and corrup tion will again hold high carnival in the hails of legislation. What clso could have been expected ? HAKBY WHITE, of the State Sen ate, sought the chairmanship of the "committee" on the prima facie case in the Twentieth Senatorial District, by offering and advocating the resolu tion to raise that committee, in order that he might become the instrument of John Cessna in obtaining from Mr. Scull the resignation of his office as As sessor of Internal Revenue. Thomas Howard was appointed on the same committee, because of his intimate personal relatious with Mr. Scull, and because ho had long ago expressed the opinion that Fiudlay ought nut to be come the sitting member. What im portance can be attached to a report from a committee thus constituted, made in defiance of law, and usage and justice? To THE MAJORITY OK THE VOTERS OK THE TWENTIETH SENATORIAL, DIS TRICT: The chances are two to one that your will as expressed at the bal lot-box will be disregarded by the committee on the prima facie case in issue between Fiudlay and Scull. Let therefore, every man.of you interest himself in gathering votes cast for Mr. Scull as will sustain Mr. Findlay in the contest. Begin the work immediate ly- THE appointment of '■ on. A. L. Russell as Adjutant General is one which it affords us much pleasure to record. Senator Cameron should now follow up his retraction of his charges against Forney by publicly recalling his accusations against Gen. Russell.— Let us have peace. IT IS said that Rhode Island will not ratify the Fifteenth Amendment, be cause the citizens disfranchised by the Constitution of that State, would be come voters under the operatien of that Amendment, and little lihoda would then he carried by the Democrats.— The radicals of that State don't want universal suffrage very much. A FA IR EXCHANGE IS NO ROBBERY. —Scull is to resign his Assessorship of Internal Revenue tor the benefit of John Cessna, and Cessna is to get Scull into the Senate through the manipula tion of Harry White and Thomas Howard. THE demand that the certificate of Mr. Findlay shall be disregarded by the Senate, does not come from the people of the Twentieth Senatorial Dis trict, but from some of the Franklin county radicals who want to be bribed to support John Cessna for Congress at the next election. I r is a wonder that the majority of the committee appointed to frame an excuse for swindling Hiram Find lay out of his seat in the Senate, were not swept away, like the Black Assizes at Oxford, as they were engaged in de liberating over their miserable devil try. THE World expresses the opinion that the Fifteenth Amendment is like ly toabort. It ought to, having been conceived in iniquity. THE great question which troubles the minds of the radical majority in the State Senate: How to get rid of the vote of Alleghany township, Som erset county. THE Stanton fund, it is thought, will reach one hundred thousand dob lars. Kennedy Moorehead has con tributed a bad dream. The gallant Democracy of New Hampshire, who have foqght yearly against powerful odds in the shape of rich corporations and government pa tronage, but who come to the scratch lively every time, held their State Convention last week, and nominated candidates for the March election.— General John Bedel was nominated for Governor, and General Michael T. Donohoe for Hailroad Commissioner — both by acclamation and with three cheers.—The candidates were brave sol diers in the late war and won their stars by hard lighting. With a proper con vass, the two generals ought to over come the twenty-five hundred Radi cal majority jq tjio State, The Governor of Colorado, in his message to tho Legislature, recoim mends the establishment of female suffrage. SEWS ITEMS. Governor Burback, of Dakota Ter ritory, forwards to the Indian Office a report announcing the killing, Noveni- i her 3, of three Arickarees, two women and one man, and the wounding of a young girl by the Sioux supposed to j belong to the Red River Agency. The , party had been gathering fuel six miles | above the village, and were floating down the river on a buffalo boat, when ! they were fired upon from the bank by a large war party of Sioux. After . killing the Indians the party tired the pararieat many places, down as far as the Knife River, thus driving all the , game out of the country and destroy- | ing the pasturage for the herds this winter. The damages caused by the fire will reachslo,ooo. Theagent fears that a number of cattle will have to be killed to avert the deplorable condi tion of affairs that prevailed last win ter, and says he will not hesitate to prevent starvation by the sacrifice of the herd, unless otherwise ordered. The man killed by the Sioux wasoneof the best hunters in the tribe, and his deathisa severe blow to many dependent on him for mea.. The Indians attacked belonged tea tribe very friendly to the whites; and the Sioux have, on many occasions, visited their abuse and out rages upon them. The Spanish crisis continues. Mad rid is in a ferment. All sorts of rumors fill the air. One is that the Cortes will proclaim a dictatorship for four months. Another that the old minis try will retain power. The excited condition ofthecountry may be imagin ed by the circumstance that two at tempts have been made to assassinate the Regent. It was but a few months since that Prim narrowly escaped deith iu the same way. The canard started here a few days ago to the effect that the Cuban Junta, in New York had ordered the insurgents to lay down their arms, has reached Madrid. The dispatch says that the news created a j profound sensation. The Cuban diffi culty complicates the Spanish situation, i and Prim may be able to turn the re- ; port, false as it is, to good account for himself. In the southern part of Graves coun- i ty, Ky., on Sunday evening, the 12th j ult., the person of Miss Dick was out- i raged by two negro men. They were arrested on the Wednesday following j and examined by a magistrate the same day, who held them for trial, and j ordered their commitment to the jail | in May field. They started to May- j field in custody of a constable, and had gone about eight miles. When three ! miles from May field they were met by ; four men in disguise, who ordered the officer to hand over the blacks to their charge. Being overpowered, the offi cer was compelled to do so, and the negroes were then shot through the head. A number of balls were fired through each, causing immediate death. The bodies were taken to May field, and an inquest held upon them on Thursday, when a verdict in accord ance with the facts was rendered. There are two reports from the West Indies about the fate of Salnave, the deposed President of Hayti. One is that he has fled to San Dotningo and claimed the protection of President Ilaez. The other, that he shut himself up in his last fort, fired the magazine, and together with his fourteen sons (prolific father), blew himself to im mortal smash. If this is the heroic et.d of the last darkey President, Wendell Phillips has another great subject for ; a lecture before lyceums. The Bellefonte Watchman records | the horrible particulars of an old man named Armagast, living on Buffalo run, not far from Bellefonte, who was almost devoured by hogs one day last week. Mr. A. was subject to fits, with one of which he was siezed in his barn j yard, when he was set upon by his hogs, who tore and mangled him in the most shocking manner. The arri | val of his son, who had much difficul ty in driving off the hogs, saved the ! old man's life for the time, but no 1 hopes are entertained for his recovery. Armed highwaymen are infesting ! the country between Denver and Chey enne City. On Tuesday of last week the United States mails were stopped ami rifled. This is the second robbery of the mails since Christmas Thefirst took place a week ago last Sunday, and 000 letters, including registered letters and money orders, nearly all for the East, were carried off. No description I of the bold banditti of Colorado is giv en, except they wear soldiers' over coats and ride small horses. A troop of cavalry are scouring the country for j them. The Governor of New York in his annual message, delivered to the Leg islature of that State, recommends a tnong other things, theabolition of the conspiracy statute in regard to labor ; and the repeal of the excise law ; pro tests against the action of Congress lo i wards the Southern States; asks for a revision of the apprentice and crime nal laws, and for a law to forbid in junction and receivers in oases against moneyed corporations on ex parte pro ceedings. The debt of the State is $55,- 000,000. A divorced woman in Boston, whose late husband has died, leaving proper ty to the amount of $200,000, claims the administration of his estate, on the ground that the divorce which was ob tained according to the laws of Indiana is invalid according to the laws of Massachusetts. Representative chiefs and braves, be longing to the Arrapahoe, Cheyenne, Osage, Comanche and Kiowa trilies, have had meetings lately, in theoourse of their hunting excursions, and a greed to live at peace with each other. The New Hampshire Democratic State Convention met at Concord last week, nominated General John Bedel for Governor, and adopted a platform sustaining generally the principles of the party. An English brig is reported to have sailed from New York, last week, un der American oolors, with a cargo of arms, ammunition and supplies, and eighty men, for Cuba, under the aq spic,s of the Junta.

Sufferers wishing to profit by the advertiser'sexperience, can do so by addressing in perfect confidence, JOHN B. OGDEN, No. 42 Cedar street, New York mayl4yl Sc he ack ' a Pulmonic Syrup, Seaweed Tonic and Mandrake Pills, wiJlcuriCon sumption, Liver Complaint, and Dyspej sia, if ta ken according to directions They are all three to be taken at the same time. They cleanse the stomach, relax theliver,and put it to work :then the appetite becomes good; the food digests and makes good blood; the patient begins to grow in flesh; tne diseased matter ripens in the lungs, ami the patient outgrows the disease and gets well. This is the only way to cure consumption. To these three medicines Dr J. H. Schenek. of Philadelphia, owes his unrivalled success in the treatment of pulmonary consumption. The Pul monic Syrup ripens the morbid matter in the lungs, nature throws it off by an easy expectora tioii. for when the phlegm or matter is ripe a slight cough will throw it off, and the patient has rest and the lungs begin to heal. To do this, the Seaweed Tonic and Mandrake Pills must be freely used to cleanse the stomach and liver, so that the Pulmonic Syrup and the food will make good blood Sehenck's Mandrake Pills act upon the liver, removing allobstructions, relax the ducts of the gall-bladder, the bile starts freely, and the liver is soon relieved ; the stools will show what the Pillican do; nothinghasever been invented ex cept calomel (a deadly poison which is very dan gerous to use unless with great care), that will unlock the gall-bladder and starts the secretions of the 1 ivor 1 ike Sehenck's Mandrake Pill! Liver Complaint is one of the most prominent causes of Consumption Sehenck's Seaweed Tonic is a gentle stimulant and alterative, and the Alkali in the Seaweed, which this preparation is made of. assists the stomach to throw out the gastric juice to dissolve the food with the Pulmonic Syrup, aiid it is made into good blood without fermentation or souring in the stomach. The great reason why physicians do not cure consumption is, they try to do too much; they give medicine to stop the cough, to stop chills, to stop night sweats, hectic fever, and by so doing they derange the whole digestive powers, locking up the secre'ions, and eventually the patient sinks and dies. Dr. Schenck, in his treatment, does not try to stop a cough, night sweats, chills, or lever. Re move the cause, and tuey will all stop of their own accord. No one can be cured of Consump tion, Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, Cataarh, Can ker, Ulcerated Throat, unless the liver and stom ach are made healthy. If a person has Consumption, ofcourse thelungs in some way are diseased, either tubercles, ab scesses, bronchial irritation, pleura adhesion, or the lungs are a mass of inflammation and fast de caying In such cases what must be done? It is not only the lungs that are wasting, but it is the whole body. The stomach and liver have lost their power to make blood out of food Now tbe only chance is to take Sehenck's three medicines, which will bring up a tone to the stomach, the patient will begin to want food, it will digesteasi ly and make good blood : then the patient begins to gain in flesh, and as soon as the body begins to grow, the lungs commence to heal up, and the pa tient gets fleshy anl well. This is the only way to cureconsumplion. When there is no lung disease, and only Liver Complaint and Dyspepsia, Sehenck's Seaweed Tonic and Mandrake Pills are sufficient without the Pulmonic Syrup. Take the Mandrake Pills freely in all billions complaints, as they are per fectly harmless Dr. Schenck, who has enjoyed uninterrupted health for many years past, and now weighs 225 pounds, was wasted away to a mere skeleton, in the very last stage of Pulmonary Consumption, his physicians having pronounced his case hope loss and abandoned him to his fat e. He was cured by the aforesaid medicines, and since bisrecovery many thousands similarly afflicted have used Dr. Sehenck's preparations with tbo same remarkable success.
