IT IS A FACT ESTABLISHED and well known that the Arabians attained a height in the knowl edge of medicine which caused the whole world to wonder and admire. With them the science of chemistry had its birth, and it is, therefore, not at ail strange that a people so eminently successful in the healing art, and so persevering and daring in character, should, by actnal and untiring experi ment, discover remedies far snroasslns in efficacv all others, for the cure of those diseases incident to ttaera from their mode of life. The greater part of their time being spent in hazardous and bloody warfare with the different tribes, they were subject to in- most violent attacks or rheumatism, paralys li, neutalgic pains, and various inflammatory dis eaeee, an also the most borid wound, sprains brui ses, tumors, swellings, d'seases of the joints, etc. All these diseases they were so surprisingly effi cient in curing, that the uninitiated looked with wonder and attributed their skill to the powers of magic. H G. FARRELL'S ARABIAN LINIMENT is a composition of balsams and oils, from rare plants peculiar to this country, nnd it was by the use of the articles composing this great remedy that not only their physicians, but even the wild Arabs of the desert were enabled to perform such miraculous cures. Tne Arab steed is world-re nowned for his beautiful symmetry of form, his unsurpassed tpeed and agility, and the incredible fatigue it is capable of enduring. Why is it? Be canse from the time of his birth hi limbs are care fully watched, and upon the first appearance of disease the magic lotion is applied, and such things as confirmed sweeny, poll-evil, fistula, ringbone. scratches, spavin, lameness, etc., etc., are unknown. The same result will follow in all cases where H. G. Farrell's Genuine Arabian Liniment ia used in time. Therefore delav not in procuring a good supply of it, for every dollar spent in it will save you twenty, ana a great deal oi Battering, it not your life. S25,S50,Si00,S200, S500.

The bou was bountifully decorated with flowers within, but the outer decorations aod illuminations were somewhat destroyed by a drizzling rain. A beautifully illuminated arch over the door beamed welcome to the distinguished guests. The Sherman band, which accompanied the party from Bennington, furnished musio. At the clo.-e ot the reception the party sardown to an elegant supper, itu mediately atter which they were escorted to me aepor, wneve a special train was awaiting theui to convey the party to Brattleboro. Brattleboro, Vt.. August 17.

The town was wrapped in slumber, having been announced that the president would proceed directly to the residence of Bigelow in West Brattleboro. His arrival at the hotel was entirely unexpected.

FOREIGN 3STJEWS. London. Aug. 17. A dispatch from Viceroy, India, dated August 15th states that a general improvement in the crop prospects in Madras, Mysore, Bombay and Northwest was maintained the past week; rain is still much needed in Punjaub, Rajpovtana and the western part of north west provinces. The prices of grain con tinue exceedingly high throughout the famine districts, but in Madras they are slightly easier than for the week preceed ing, and still are lower in every part of that presidency than in the worst parts of Bombay and Mysore. btocks and supplies continue to cause anxiety; the gram trade at Calcutta is ex ceedingly active, 90,000 tons of shipping are engaged. The condition of Mysore continues critical. The governer of Bengal telegraphs concerning the con dition of Bombay, that prices of grain are slightly easier, but are still very high, improvement of the situation is retarded by the want of general rain. The people are feeling still more the pressure of high prices. The difficulty in Bombay is aggra vated by the state of affairs in Madras and Virgin and by the inabilility of the railroads to bring forward grain sufficient for great demand. There has been a further increased, in Madras. of the number relieved of 189,000. making 385,000 increase in the last fortnight io Mysore. Laborers on works arc decreas ing, and the charitably relieved is increas ing, in Bombay the reverse is occurring, l. a. Dut mere is a silent general increase in totals relieved. In Madras there are 983,- OOO lfiborers on the works and 1,000,000 charitably relieved; in Mysore there are 45.000 on works, and 164.000 charitably relieved, and in Bombay 26D.O0O on works, and 1 19,000 charitably relieved.

A son of Rev. Smith Ketchuui, of Corn wall township. Bureau county,, about ten years old, came to his death in a most shocking manner last Wednesday evening. The particulars as we learn them are about as follows: Robbie, as he was called, was sent to bring up the cows, and as the dis tance was considerable lie was in the habit of tiding; on this occasion the horse he usually rode was absent and he took a youog horse. He was found some hour or two subsequently, dead, with the hal ter tied around his wrist. It is supposed when he reached the pasture and dis mounted to open the bars the horse got away from him, and after catching him he tied the halter to his wrist. The horse subsequently becoming frightened ran with aim. and either kicked him or he was killed by being dragged by the halter. The horse jumped a hedge in the course of his flight and it is surmised that the boy was theu fatally injured. When found by his mother, his father being from home, he was fearfully mutilated, his scalp being completely striped from the skull, Ms body in a nude state, and be appeared to have been dead for a considerable time. When found, the. horse was quietly feeding by the roadside, but starting as Mrs. Ketchum came up broke the halter, by which the boy had been dragged so long and fatally. f . a-aj aj TV . Antorney Ueneral ftusall, in response to numerous inquiries from road othcers and State's Attorneys, has given an opin ion in regard to the collection of road tax es. He says that where these taxes were levied and the list were given to the Over seers of Highways prior of July 1, 1877, the taxas may be collected under the law of 1873; but where the taxes were not lev t :d, or. if levied, the Overseers were not iurnished with the lists prior to Julyl, fhe tax must be collected under the law of 1877. . Dragged a Qr.arter of a Mile cn Hia Pace by a Runaway Hcrae. A horrible accident occurred at the races at Geneseo, on Wednesday,. James Day a gentleman well known in that city, was driving King Phillip, Mr. John P. Stewart's trotter, and just at the outset of a beat io the second race, he was run into by the driver of Billy Monroe.and one of the wheels of the sulky on which he rode was broken. Mr. Day was precipitated to the ground. and one of his feet caught ia the frame work of the sulky, and thus he was dragged nearly a quarter of a mile his face on the ground. The horrified spectators were powerless to do ought but gaze in speech less awe at the fearful spectacle. Nobody supposed otherwise than that he was dead; but on going to where he lay, he wis found still to be alive, and no bones broken. Drs. Wells and Antes, who are attending him, express hopes of his recovery. Mr. Day seems to have a strange fatality following him, as it was only last May that he was rescued by almost superhuman exertions on the part of Mr. Bird Miller, from the burning Geneseo House. . Several other accidents but of little con sequence have also occurred. To Make the Toilet Complete.
