Sun Pain of 10 years' standing cured by II. G
Farrell's Arabian Linibekt.
Mr. n. G. Farrell, Dear Sir: I had been afflicted
with the "Sun Pain" for the last ten years, I could
never get reltef except by bleeding; but by the use
of II. G. Farreirs Arabian Liniment, applied over
the temples about thre or four times a day, it was
entirely removed, and 1 havefeltnoth.ns of it since.
I went into the stable one night to apply it to a
uoree's sore lefr, and nelug very lame be 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, and was well enough in a few days to go
about again as nsual. I also crushed my ftneerin
a shocking manner, by letting a back log fall upon
it ; your Liniment soon healed it np, thouixh.
LaSallc, Peoria Co., 111. John B. M'gee.
fEsq, 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 lea of a bov 12 years old. The leg had
withered away, and was so contracted that he had
no use of it. Three doctors had tried their skill up
on it in vain, and he was fast sinking to the grave,
when the bov'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
Unimeut you have in the store ; the one bottle I got
did my boy more good than all that had ever been
done before." That boy is now well and hear
ty, and has free use of his l3gs. It Is pood for brui

The public ar cautioned against another coun

W. B. Farrell's Arabian Liniment, the most danger

without the knowledge that a counterfeit exists,

DR. SCHENCK'S PULMONIC SYB.TJF
Ska Weed Tonic and Masdbakk Film. 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 winch
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 cases, and if taken freely by con
sumptive patients, It must do great injury; for its
tendency is to confine the morbid matter in tLe
systaji, which, of course, innst make a cure impos
sible. Schcnck's Pulmonic Syrup 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, ana thus corrects
all morbid secretions, and expel all the diseased
matter from the body . These arc the only means
byj which Consumption can be cured, and as
Schcnck's Pulmonic Syrup, Sea Weed Tonic and
Mandrake Tills 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. Dr. Schenck is professionally

advice must be addressed.

A JXule That Works Only One Way
The St. Louis Republican makes the
following sensible observations in regard
to Secretary Sherman's persistent efforts
to give all the choice plums to the bond
One ol tho reasons given by Secretary
Sherman for holding that the 4 per cent
bonds now being issued are payable in gold
and uothine else, is that gold is being re
ceived for them, and it would be unfair to
tav them in a metal less valuable than is
exacted for them. But this is not as
effective an argatnent as the secretary
imagines. Let us remind him of a little
historical fact direct to the point; when
the five-twenty bonds, sixteen hundred
millions in amount, were issued during the
war, they were sold for greenbacks, not
one dollar of gold was ever exacted for
them. By secretary Sherman's rule.then,
they ought to be payable in greenbacks
independently of tLe fact that tbey were
payable in greenbacks, by the letter and
spirit of the contract; but in 1869 Mr.
Sherman, as senator from Ohio, voted to
piy them in coin thus denying to the
people the benefit ot a rule which he lays
down for the advantage of the bond holder.
