Esq, Barker, of Canton, 111., says ; Mr. U. G. Farrell's Arabian Liniment has cured some bad cases here, which every other remedy had failed in ; one was a white swelling and contracted cords in the leg of a boy 12 years old. The leg had withered away, and was so contracted that he had no use ol it. Tnree doctors naa trlea tneir skui up on it in vain, and he was fast sinking to the grave. when the boy's father was induced to try II. G. Far rell's Arabian Liniment. Before the first bottle was used up he came to Mr. B.'s store, and the first words he said were, "Mr. Barker, I want all that Liniment you have in the store; the one bottle I got aid my boy more good than an that naa ever Deen done before." That boy is now well and hear ty, and has free use of his lgs. It is good for brui ses, sprains, cuts, burns and swellings. LOOK OUT FOli COUNTEHFEITS!

Gentlbmbn: About twelve years ago, while traveling wtth Father Kemp's Old Folks Ooncert Troupe s a tenor singer, I took a severe cold and was laid up at Newark, rs. J. 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 ana return nome unaoie to sing a note. For three years afterwards 1 was unable to aing at il. The llrst attack ot catarrh naa lett my nasal organs and throat so sensitive that the slightest cold would brin? on a fresh attack, leaving me prostrated. In this way I contlnned to suffer, fbe 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, and coiiphiut; incessantly. I thought I was eolng into quiet consumption, ana i nrmiv oeneve mat naa tnese symptoms continued without reliet they would have rendered me an easy victim. When in this distressing condition, I commenced the nse of Sanford's Radical Curb por Catarrh, verv re- uctantlv.I confess, as I had tried all the advertised remedies without beneflt. The flivt dose of this wonderrul 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. o realize how much relief I obtained from the first application of Sanpord's Radical Curb. Under its influence, both iuternal and external, I rapidly recovered, and by an occasional nse of the remedy since have been entirely free from Catarrh, for the first time in twelve years.

DR. SCHENCK'3 PULMONIC SYHUI SeaWekd Tunic and Mandrake Pills. These medicines have undoubtedly performed more cures of Consumption than any other remedy known to the American public. They are compounded of vegetable ingredients, and contain nothing which can be injurious to the human constitution. Other remedies advertised as cures for Consumption, probably contain opium, which is a somewhat dan gerous drug in all cafes, and if taken freely by con sumptive patients, it must do great injury; for its tendency is to confine the morbid matter in the syeiB, which, of course, mnpt make a cure impos sible. Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup is warranted not to contain a particle of opinm; it is composed of powerful but harmless herbs, which act on the lungs, liver, stomach and blood, and thus corrects all morbid secretion?, and expel all the diseased matter from the body . These are the only means bv! which Consumption can be cured, and as Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup, Sea Weed Tonic and Mandrake Tills are the onlv medicine which opc. rate in this way, it is obvious that the are the only genuine cure for Pulmonary Consumption, tach bottle of this invaluable medicine is accompanied by full directions. Dr. Schenck is professionally at his principal office, corner Sixth and Arch Sts., Philadelphia, every Monday, where all letters for advice must be addressed.

HAS worked a revolution in the treatment of Ca-1 tanh. it has demonstrated beyond all doubt I that this disease, even in its severest forms, is cure- able and that comfort and happiness may be made to follow years of misery, years of sulTering, by a persistent use of it. The method of treatment or leinatea dt Air. caniora. viz: tne local ana consti tutional by a remedy prepared by distillation, is tne only one ever oneren to tne public that will near iu test ot time.
