DEALER IN Gold and Silver Laces, Fringes, STARS, BRAIDS, ETC. 8SS Main Street, WORCESTER, MASS. IT IS AN ERONEOUS IDEA that disease can not be cured except by taking large quantities of medicines into the stomach. In a great many cases of which much injury ia done, althongh the disease in point be actually cured. The coats of the stom ach by continued use of nauseating mixtures, fre quently become so much disordered that the diges tive function is seriously Injured the result of which is dyspeps.a. nervousness, colics, alternate dlarrhiea and costiveness, flatulence, nightmare, etc. Would it not. therefore, be very desirable to possess a remedy, which being applied externally would excite the absorbents to increased action, and thus carry off through this medium, the delete rious principle which ib the direct cause of the dis ease? Surely every thinking man will admit that this would not only be the most pleasant, but by far the safest means to effect the desired end. The almost superhuman cures performed by the Ara bian physicians in the days of old were mainly ef fected by this course of tieatnient, and the ingredi ents of which 11 G. KARRELL'S CELEBRATED ARABIAN LINIMENT is composed, are extricated from rare plants peculiar to Arabia. This great I.ininieut (which is now to be had of moet respecta ble drutrglsts and merchants in every town in the United States) is daily enecting cures which seemed beyond the power of medicine to control consump tion, bronchitis and liver complaints in their first stages, nervous affections, indigestion, enlalge meut of the spleen, scrofurons tumors, goitre, etc., are frequently cured, and always relieved by its use. It is unsurpassed as an anodyne relieving severe pains in a lew minutes after its application, it soothes the irritated nerves, and produces that delightful tranquility so grateful to the nervous in valid. Sprains, bruises, wounds, burns, sore throat chilblains, rheumatism, sun pain, etc., are speedily cured by it, and for nearly ail ailments in horses or cattle, requiring an external application, it is an el fectnal remedy. More About the St. Xiouis Banks. St. Louis. July 18. The president of the Butchers' and Drovers' bank, says he has every reason to believe the depositors will leave the adjustment of the difficulties of that bank in his hands and will accept the proposition made by him, he thinks an assessment of $25 per share will be re quired on stockholders to close up the business speedily, and ia confident that this sum or at least the greater part of it will be returned to them when the assets are realized upon. The directors of the North St. Louis Savings association have discussed several proDOsitions for the settlement of their affairs with a view to reopening the bank and resuming business. The assets of this association are $150,000 above liabilities. As an evidence of returning confidence, it may be said that the Broadway SaviDgs Association which felt the run of Saturday and Monday as severely as any bank, re ceived a large number of new amounts yesterday and its deposits were about $8,000 in excess of any previous day. Uvir $3,000,000 arrived here yesterday by express for banking purposes. ST. liOuis, July 18.

The principal creditors are business houses in Europe; three promi nent English firms are known to be credi tors to the amount of $200,000. The failure is attributed to losses by recent heavy failures of other firms, and by a too liberal system of credits. The firm is said to have lost large sums by the chase of gold.

In the atmosphere experienced here during the summer months, the lethargy produced by the heat takes away the desire for wholesome food, and frc qnent perspirations reduce bodily energy, particu larly tliOBj suffering from the effects of debilltata- ting diseases. lu order to keep a natural healthful activity of the system we must resort to artificial icans. For this purpose Schcnck's Sea Weed Ton ic is very effectual. A few doses will create an ap petite and give fresh vigor to the enervated body For dyspepsia, it is invaluable. Many eminent physicians have doubted whether dyspepsia can be permanently cured by the drugs which are gener ally employed for that purpose. The Sea Weed Tonic in itB nature is totally different from such drugs. It contains no corrosive minerals or acids; in fact It assists the regnlar operations of nature, and supplies her deficiencies. The tonic in Its na ture so much resembles the gastric juice that it is almost identical with that fluid. The gastric juice I the natural solvent which, in a healthy condition of the body causes the food to be digested; and when this juice is not excreted in sufficient quanti ties, Indigestion, with nil Its distressing symptoms follow. The Sea Weed Tonic performs the duty of the gastric juice when the latter Is deficient Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic sold by all Druggists, Further from the Indian War.

By all?means let the country have a fair opportunity to test the strength of the now apparently controlling elements of the Re publican party which openly or sullenly op pose the policy of the President. Iowa just missed a chance of putting forward ex secretary Uelknap or uovernor, as he is the niol't earnest leader that state has to antagonize civil service refcrm and section al peace. Ohio has uot yet thrown away her opporiunity, and Ben Wade is just the man out of employment. Pennsylvania has Don Cameron, who can be put at the head of the ticket for Governor next year, and when he pulls the anti-Hayes team through he can step over to the Senate. Jersey has a superb representative man in Robinson, who can take a shy at the Gov ernorship and nobody will mistake who and what won or lost after the election. New York can fall back upon Cornell for Governor next time and give her people an opportunity to prove how they wculd htve elected him in l;it. it nec essary to strenenten tne t'ctet Uhamber- lam could be put on as hind rider for Lieutenant Governor. Maine has Blaine, the "leader of leaders," among the insur gents, and he could step down from the Senate, as did Hamlin in 1S56, run for Governor, sweep the Sttte by twenty thousand or so- if the votes can be got and then go back to the Senate.

He is a stout built fellow, wiry aud athletic, and not afraid of man or devil. To-day he was arrested by officers Pat and Mike Purcell, and it was only by persuasive means that they were enabled to take him to jail. Y hue wait ing in the hall for the jailer, George Leo nard, to come and open the outer door leading into the jail corridors, Martin and Mike Purcell had some words, and the fel low becoming very abusive, it became nec essary to remind him of his position by tap ping him once or twice with the billy on the side of the head. Quickly jerking out a big knife he made a bound for the offi cers who jumped back, officer Pat pulling bis pistol, and levelling it at tbe fellow, told him to drop bis knife. Martin paid no at tention to Purcell' s .orders, nor yet to his pistol which was within two feet of him oa a dead aim for his heart, but kept making threatening demonstrauons.and Purcell not liking to fire, backed away fom the fellow, oaitinc, "George, George 1" Martin had backed the two officers into the -offica off the hall, when the jailor appeared, and, takinir in the situation at a glance, picked up Harvey's cane, and struck the desperado Cince or twice before he dropped him, when tbe knife fell out of bis hands, and he was secured and locked up in a cell.
