tive function is seriously injured the resnlt of
which is dyspepsia, nervousness, colics, alternate

possess a remedy, which blng applied externally
would excite the absorbents to increased action,
and thns carry off through this medium, the delete
rious principle which is the direct cause of the dis
ease? Snrelv every thinking man will admit that
this wonld 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 physiciauB in the days of old were mainly ef
fected by this course of tieatment, and the ingredi
ents of which H O. FARRSLL'S CELEBRATED
ARABIAN LINIMENT is composed, are extricated
from rare plants peculiar to Arabia. This great
kwiment (which is now to be had of most respecta
ble druggists and merchants in every town in the
United States) is daily effecting cures which seemed
beyond the power of medicine to control consump
tion, bronchitis and liver complaints in their first
stages, nervous affections. Indigestion, enlalge
ment of the spleen, scrofulous tamors, goitre, etc..
are frequently cured, and always relieved by Its
use. It is unsurpassed as an anodyne relieving
severe pains in a few 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 all ailments in horses or
cattle, requiring an external application, it is an ef
found half an hour after by a posse of
the citizens in the last agonies of death,
having taken poison. Mrs. Hall is still
alive, but her situation is considered pre
carious. Civil suits for damages was filed in St.

circuit court by the United States 'govern

braces 1 .653 eounts for $1,400 each aggre
gating $2,314,200. These cjunts are al!
alike in form, except that the name of
different distilleries are inserted in each,
charging them with the unlawful removal
of distilled spirits and also charging de
fendant with aiding and abetting in the re
moval of said spirits, which act rendered
him liable to the above penalty of $1,400.
Assistant District Attorney Denison says
it is not expected that judgments will be
obtained on all the counts, but it is ex
pected that about $500,000 will be recov

MANY WHO ARE SUFFERING
from the effects of the warm weather and are de
bilitated, are advised by physicians to take mod
crate amounts of whisky two or three times during
the day. In a little while those who adopt this ad
vice frequently increase the number of "drinks"
and In time become confirmed inebriates. A bev
erage which will not create thirst for intoxicating
UquorB. and which is intended especially for the
benefit of debilitated persons, whether at home or
abroad, is Dr. Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic. Con
taining the juices of many medicinal herbs, this
preparation does not create an eppetlte for the in
toxicating cup. The nourishing and the life sup
porting properties of many valuable nature pro
ductions contained in it and well known to medi
cal men have a most strengthening lnflneu:e. A
single bottle of the Tonic will demonstrate Its val
uable qualities. For debility arising from sickness
over exertion or from any cause whatever, a wine
glassful of Sea Weed Tonic taken after meals will
strengthen the stomac6 and create an appetite for
wholesome Ifood. Eo all who are about leaving
their homeo, we desire to eay that the excellent ef
fect of Dr. Schenck's seasonable remedies, Sea
Weed Tonic, and Mandrake Pills, are-particularly
evident when laken by those who are injuriously
affected by a change of water and diet. No person
should leave home without taking a supply of these
safeguards along. For sale by all druggists.

was accepted and an order drawn on the

refered to the finance committee.
The following ordinances were taken up
and passed: An ordinance providing for
tne widening ot Uivision street, between
Pitts and Gilbert streets. An ordinance
to provide tor the construction of a side

The Rodman avenue committee made
the following report: Your committee to
whom was retered the matter of securing
the right of way on Rodman avenue,
necessary to widen the same to an 80 feet
ttrret, would report that they have con
tracted for the right of way through the
Holt property for $1,200, and through
the Hartzell property for $300, whkb j9
within $100 ot what it was estimated by
your cammittee the right of way
couid be condemned for. It was deemed
advisable by your committee to pay the
additional amount, rather than com
mence an action to condemn the same.
