Farrell's Arabian Liniment, applied over the temples about three or four times a day, it was entirely removed, and I have felt nothing of it since. I went Into the stable one night to apply it to a horse's sore leg, and being very lame he stumbled and fell against my legs, crushing and bruising them so badly that they turned black as my hat, rendering them powerless. 1 applied your Lini ment, aod was well enough in a few days to go about again as usual.

These medicines have undoubtedly performed more cures of Consumption than any other remedy known to the American public. They are compounded of vegetable iugrcdientg, and contain nothing which can be injurious to the human constitution. Other remudics advertised as cures for Consumption, probably contain opium, which is a somewhat dan gerous drug in all cases, and if taken freely by con sumptive patients, It must.do great injury; for its tendency is to confine the morbid matter in the system, which, of course, must make a cure impos sible. Schenck's Pulmonic Syrnp is warranted not to contain a particle of opium ; it is composed of powerful but harmless herbs, which act on the lungs, liver, stomach and blood, and thus corrects all morbid secretions, and expel all the diseased matter from the body . These are the only means bvi which Consumption can be cured, and as Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup, Sea Weed Tonic and Mandrake Pills are the only medicines which ope rate in this way, it is obvious that they are the only genuine cure for Pulmonary Consumption. Each bottle of this invaluable medicine is accompanied by full directions.

Deep interest has been felt in all parts of the country over the conviction of the murderous Molly Maguires at Pottsville and Mauch Chunk. The most desperate efforts have been made to save the necks of these wretched men, hut law and order has been vindicated, and, to-day sees the state of Pennsylvania freed from iten of the gang. Their execution will act as a wholesome check on the future operations of J members of that or any similar or ganizations in that state. At Pottsville, to-day, and for Beveral days past, nothing else has been talked ot but the hanging. On Sunday the wiyes of the condemned men arrived from Harrisburg, where they had been in attendance at the session of the Board of Pardons. They applied at the jail for admittance, but were informed that it was against the rules to admit any one on Sunday. They therefore departed for their respective homes, and Monday morning once more presented themselves at the jail. They were admitted and shown to the cells containing their hus bands. Mrs, (Jarroll, a woman who has proved herself both a loving wife and an indefatigable worker, not satisfied with the decision ot the pardoning power called upon the governor and begged him to spare the life of her hus band, but was told that nothing could 02 done for him and that his death was inevitable. Arriving at her husband's cell she stretched out both hands and clasping those of Carroll looked down and wept bitterly, Carroll, a man of rather fine presence and the possessor of unlim ited self-control, though of a nervous tem perament, bore himself bravely while in the presence of his wife and tried to cheer her by saying; "Don't cry, don't cry. I'm ready and prepared to die, and you know I'm innocent." At this his wife broke out afresh, and was led away sobbing bitterly. When left to his reflections, Car roll cried like a child, "but regaining his composure applied himself diligently to reading the religious books which his priest had given bim. Carroll is completely un manned when he thinks of his four little children, but persists in asserting his inno cence, and will, it is thought, die without making a public confession. Hugh Mc- Geghan, who shot Yost, is a tall and well built, though rather raw-boned, Irishman with somewhat unprepossessing features, but with a face the lines of which denote him a man of iron will. Till of late he has boldly asserted his innocence upon every possible occasion, but within the last week or two he has become a changed man. He can neither read nor write, and passes his time in praying, but when spoken to upon the subject ot his crime is silcut. Upon hearing the decision of the board of pardons he 6aid nothing, but has since been very despondent, and it would Dot cause a treat deal of surprise were he to break down upon the scaffold His wife, a rretty, Iresh-lookinii creature of not more than twenty years of age called to see him to-day, and surprised all who saw her by the nerve she displayed. "Keep up your heart, Hugh," she said, "you'll die innocent, and if you were given your freedom they would follow you aud shoot you down like a dog. Boyle, Mc- (ieirhan's companion in the shootine of Yost, is going to pieces, lie and his wife a woman about thirty-five, and much older thin her husband, called to see Lim Mon day morning and mingled her tears with his. He still asserts his innocence and says, "If ever an innocent man received a reward for being hung for a crime he did not commit, I will go to heaven." He spends his time in praying, as, like Mc Geghan, he cannot read or write. "Never mind, neyer mind," said lloarty, another ot the Yost murderers, to his wife. Mrs. lloarty cannot speak English, and is in a most destitute condition, and while speak ing to her husband she wept copiously, be wailing her fate and that of her starving children.'' Koarty was always the most lighthearted of the condemned men, but after he has been told to prepare to die on Thursday he prayed continually and la boriously spelled his way through his prayer-book. Duffy, the only unmarried man among Yost's murderers, has. since his arrest, presented a bold and defiant front, speaking to no one but his intimate friends; but since the decision of the board he has become yery despondent, having entertained strong hopes of a pardon. Thomas Munlv. the murderer of Sancer. sits in bis cell and alternately cries and prays. This man is a fearful hypocrite, and calls upon God to sustain him in dvine innocent. In Mauch Chunk, Yellow Jack Donohoe, the murderer of L'owell, and the most hardened criminal of all. prays from morning till night and. like the rest, maintains his innocence; but it is thoueht that he will confess before he is swung into eternity. Campbell, the insti gator of the Jones murder, is slowly but surely breaking down; but as he is a man of powerful will, it is not expected that he will confess. Kelly and Doyle, who shot Jones, are but shadows of their former selves. Dovlc would die in less than a Dr, I V H ill II UUL UttUKCUi C&UU X-HV TV LIQUID STARCH bLUbb ! be loDg in following bim.

At Pottsville the men will probably be hanged together. Fears of a disturbance are entertained by the govern- m en t, and the First and Second liegiments, stationed in Philadelphia, are under orders to move at two hours' notice with thirty rounds of ammunition and two days ra tiona. respectively for Mauch Chunk and Pottsville. Both jails are well guarded by heavv detachments ot the coal and iron police. Matjcii Chunk, June 21. At 10:52 this morning the four Molly Maguires confined here, were executed. Wilkesbarre, June 21. Lanahan,the Molly Macuire. was executed at 10:40. Pottsville. June 21. The weather. this morning at day break, was dull and heavy, and before 8 a drizzling rain began to fall, without, however, diminishing the crowd already in waiting outside of the jail Thero is a general suspension of business throughout the surrounding country, in deference to the extraordinary event of the day.' The solemn funeral Quiet attending the preparations for the executions,served to make more impressive the tragic occur rence which marks this most eventful day in the criminal calander of the state. The previous night was passed without any un usual incident, but soon after dawn the towu became a rendezvous lor groups of pedestrians from all parts of the neighbor ing country. Ihese are nearly all of the poorer class, some having traversed many miles from their homes to be present. The jail, located on the summit of one of the many hills surrounding this place, is the centre of attraction, and the concourse on the way thither hourly increases in numbers. In consequence of some delay persons entitled to admission to the jail at 8 o'clock, were compelled to remain in waiting outside for more than half an hour. Meanwhile the immediate relations of the condemned took their last farewell. The scene was a trying one; the brother and two sisters of lloarity were admitted at 6, and soon after the aged and impover ished father of Munly, who had walked to the prison all the way from Gilbert, a dis tance of 1 3 miles. Several of the relations of the others not having applied at the proper time were not admitted. To each of the doomed men has been assigned a clergyman who will attend his charge in his dying moment. The reverend gentle men were in attendance at the cells of the men at dawn this a. m.and afterward assisted in celebrating mass in .the pri vate apartment; the clergyman are Revs. Dan'l M. Demott. F. U. J. Galely, H. J. Depman, Jas. McGowan, Martin Walsh and Philip lieresford. But three of the doomed men were presented at one time. Religious services being repeated at eight. All access to the men by others than the sheriff and bis assistants and spiritual advisers has been scrupulously avoided. 1 he men are reported to hive passed the night well, and at the usual time breakfast was served for each, though tins was barely touched by any ot them. Carroll, Munly ana Roarity express their eagerness to die and are apparently calm and resigned. The last named this morning received a letter from his father wishing him to turn his thoughts heavenward, and while admonishing him to his parent's be- let in his mnocence, advising him to con fees the truth before God and the world. The present arrangement bv Sheriff Werner contemplates the execution of two at one time and the execution of the other iour within half an hour later. Those having precedence will probably be Munly and McGeghan. Later 10 a. m. An almost uninter rupted line of people holding admission cards has been passing through the front piison gates within the last hour. This is made up in varying pro portions of local and visiting official?, many bchuylkul county physicians, about fifty journalists, representing every news paper in the county, and the leading jour nals ot large cities, shenn s deputies, mem bers of juries and detachment of coal and iron police force, making a total of about laU persous already admitted. Ihe mul titude -nade their way to the jail yard and spent the interval prior to the hanging in discussing iu groups the all absorb ing topic ot the execution, and the size of the gallows. It is in the further extrem ity of the yard from the usual place of entrance, and is plainly visible irom the convicts' cell windows, fronting it on three sides; these cells however appear to le unoccupied. The high stone outer wall of tne yard is within a few feet of the rear of the scaffold, a frame structure for the temporary deposit of bodies of the victims intervening. The scaffolds themselves, which immediately join each other, are rudely but substantially constructed. Each is supplied with two hanging ropes, though upon but one only are these visible, the otners oeiog coiled up ana concealed in gum-covering thrown over the cross beams. It is currently reported that Duffy, one of the Yost murderers, has at last moment received executive clemency io the shape of a reprieve, deferring his immediate ex ecution. The rumor, however, lacks con firmation. Duffy is the man.in revenge for whose beating by Policeman Yost, the latter was murdered. The only witness against him on the trial was Jim Kerrigan, and suspicion attaching to the evidence of an accomplice when not corroborated is the piea upon which his fiiends allege the interposition ot the government will be made. His case before the pardoning board received more consideration than the others, the vote being a tie. The presence of the governor's private secre tary, Chester L. Forr, may have given rise to the report. The brother of Duffy knows nothing of the hoped for clemency. Uutsiue the prison, crowds ot curious spectators increased from small groups of the early morning to thousands, and occu py the entire street. INo indications ot turbulence are apparent. LATER NOON. The execution of Boyle and McGeghan took place at 11.10. Mauch CnuNK, June 21. - All arrangements for the execution were made at 10 o'clock. Shortly after, the deputy sheriffs and reporters, and other assistants, entered the corridor. Ihe sheriff adjusted the ropes and called his assistants to him. In a lew minutes Campbell's cell door was opened and he appeared, accompanied by the priest. Campbell walked quickly to the scaffold, ascending with a light step. The priest read prayers ior the dying prisoner, who responded, repeatedly kissing the crucifix and turning his face upward, his lips slightly moved in prayer. Doyle was next brought out He walked up the scaffold unassisted. John Donahue walked boldly out and up the 6teps of the scaffold Kelly came last, and seemed quite strong. 1 hey were all attended by a priest, Ione of the four evinced very much uneasiness. The priests prayed for several minutes, the prisoners kneeling and responding. Alter the priests lett the scaffold .Sheriff liauden bush and two assistants adjusted the ropes The sheriff, examining each prisoner care- lully, then asked it they had anything to say. Campbell replied that he forgave everybody, and continued, 1 haye not an enemy in the world at tuis moment. the Doyle spoke tor some time, but his words were inaudible except to the sheriff and the priests. Donahue had nothing to say, Kelly recited, after the priest, a plea for forgiveness. Ihe sheriff then pulled the rope, the trap dropped and the doomed men fell at 10:54. Kelly, Doyle and Campbell died easy. Donahue struggled two minutes. Doyle s heart ceased beat ing in 12 minutes, Campbell's in 14, Kelly's in li, Donahue's in 6. There was do mis hap. The town was quiet. The patrol ling home guard returned to their homes. All the condemned men dress ed themselves carefully this a. m. Kelly bade hia counsel good bye and thanked ihim. Donahue would say nothing to his, except to order him out of the cell. The other pris oners shook hands with their counsel. The men passed the greater part of the night in praying. Campbell asserts that Captain Liuden and the Shenandoah Herald reporters know he is innocent but are afraid to admit it. Mrs. Campbell. is very bitter. Donahue s wire is opposite the jail, dressed in mourning, and sobbing convulsively. Doyle's father, almost in his dotage, walked, yesterday, 13 miles to be here and lay out his son's remains. Pottsville, June 21. Roarity 'and Carroll were hung at 12 30. Each made speeches and died easily. The others are to be hanged in half an hour. The doomed men walked quickly from the prison to the scaffold without trepi dation. Boyle and McGeghan were com posed, and the latter appeared to realize the awful Eitoation, looking repeatedly and appealinely to heaven. Both participated in religious exercises. Boyle said ' to his priest, I ain t a bit sorry. McGeghan spoke as follows: I have nothing at all to say to you about my guilt or innocence, nor about them that left me in here, or them that done anything else to me. 1 only ask for giveness of the whole world, if 1 have done wrong to them, and Almighty God may forgive all Christians and all them that he ever created, in this world, tor the sake of forgiving my sins." Here the speech was ended, its concluding portion having been delivered in a somewhat tre mendous, though firm and vigorous tone- IWc are compelled to close our report here as it is now G o'clock.

Gentlemen: About twelve years ago, while traveling with Father Kemp's Old Folks Ooncert Troupe as a tenor singer, I took a severe cold ana was laid up at Newark, N. 3. This cold brought on a severe attack of Catarrh, which I battled with every known remedy for four weeks without avail and was finally obliged to give np a most desirable position and return home unable to sing a note. For three years afterwards I was unable to eing at all. The flret attack of Catarrh had left my nasal organs aud throat so sent itive that the slightest cold would bring on a fresh attack, leaving me prostrated. In this way I continued to suffer. The last attack, the severest I ever had, was terrible. I suffered the most excruciating pain in my head, was so hoarse as to be scarcely able to speak, end coughing incessantly. I thought I was going into quick consumption, aud 1 firmly believe that had these symptoms continued without relief they would have rendered me an easy victim. When in this distressing condition, I commenced the use of Stanford's Radical Ci;re por Catarrh, very re luctantly,! confess, as I had tried all the advertised remedies without benefit. The first dose of this wonderful medicine gave me the greatest relief. It is hardly possible for one whose head aches, eyes ache, who can scarcely articulate distinctly on ac count of the choking accumulations in his throat, to realize how much relief I obtained from the first application of Sanford'b Radical Cche. Under its influence, both internal and external, I rapidly recovered, and by an occasional use of the remedy since have been entirely free from Catarrh, for the urst time in twelve years. Respectfully yours, GEO. W. DOLBROOK. Waltbam. Mass., Jan. 8th, 1876. P. R.I purchased the Radical Cure of GEORGE li. KUUiiits, urnggist, Kumiora Building. SANFORD'S RADICAL CURE For Catarrh MAS worked a revolution in the treatment of Ca ll tarrh. It has demonstrated beyond all doubt that this disease, even in its severest forms, is cure- ablc and that comfort and happiness may be made to lollow years or misery, years ol Buttering, Dy persistent use of it. The method of treatment or iginated by Dr. Sanford, viz: the local and const! tutional by a remedy prepared by distillation, is the only one ever offered to the public that will bear luu test ol time.
