IT IS A FACT ESTABLISHED and well known that tbe Arabians attained a height In the knowl edge of medicine which caused the whole world to wonderland 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 darlpg in character, should, bv actual and nntirlno rwri. ment, discover remedies far snrpaxelng in efficacy all others, for the enre of those diieases incident to them f n-m their mode of life. The greater part of their time reing spent In hazardous and bloody warfare with the diffeent tribes, they were subject to in- uiosi violent attacKS oi rneumatism.paralys if, neuralgic pains, and various inflammatory dia easee, as also the most horid wonnds, sprains brni ses, tumors, swelllncrs, diseases of the Joints, etc, All these diseases tney 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, and it was by the nse of the articles composing this great remedy that not only their physicians, but even the wild Arans oi the aesert were enabled to perform snch miraculous cures. The Arab steed is world-re. nowned for his beautiful symmetry of form, his uaiurpamcaipwa tuu aguiiy, ana iae ixicreuioie fatlgae it is capable of enduring. Why is it? Be cause from the time of his birth his limbs are care tally watched, and upon the first appearance of disease the magic lotion is applied, and each things as connrmea sweeny, poll-evil, fistula, ringbone. scratcnes, spavin, lameness, etc., etc., are unknown The same resnlt will follow in all cases where H O.

The attack which earned off Ex President Theirs was what is called in France apoplexie faudruoyante. tie was apparently in good health, in the morning and took his usual walk. After luncheon he felt symptoms of illness, which speedly developed into an apopletio fit. lie remained unconscious and died at 6. apparently without pain. Mo event, short of a coup d'etat or communist rising could have created so profound an im pression throughout France. Its effect on the present political crisis canuot yet be properly weighed, uauobetta is now without a rival in the republican party, bat his advanced views are so alarming to theileft centre that the republican party as a whole will probably seek to counteract the evil effects of Theirs' removal by putting forward Greuy, ex-president of the Chamber of Deputies, as a candidate for succession to the presidency in the event of President MacMahon's retirement. London, Sept. 4. A correspondent telegraphs it would be impossible to convey an idea of the grief and consternation which prevails at the death of Theirs this morning. 1 he news spread like wild-fire. and even at an early hour, though the weather is very inclement, the streets of Pans were filled with people. In the great excitement some were actually shed ding tears and all giving vent to feelings ot grief and apprehension, the death of I heirs just now being regarded by all as a national calamity. Theirs had been staying for the last few months at Paval lion Henri Quabre. St Germain en Lave. and had caught a slight cold, but nothing whicn led to the anticipation of death. Another correspondent says his death has made a deep impression in polit ical circles. The Conservatives think it assures them fuccess at the elections. Great consternation prevails in the Re publican camp. London, Sept. 4. A Russian official dispatch, dated Gorny Sluden, 7.35 this morning, says Lovatz was yesterday car ried by assault by the Russian troops un der Generals Meretinsky and Skobeloff. London, Sept. 4. The Times' leaders yesterday and to-day show the Heedless ness of the present war, its excessive cost liness in men and money far outweighing Us possibilities for good, and the danger of eventual llussiau failure. From all of which the Times concludes: ''The present moment is propitious for intervention, and Germany and England ought to take the initiative to bring about a ruco." Batotjm. Sept. 4. The Turks have completely evacuated Sukem Kaleh. London, Scot. 4. A correspondent at Parelin telegraphs: "I rode over the bat tle field of Peiisat. The Turks left very few wounded and only about 300 dead on the field. Iheir losses could be better judged by the number of knapsacks with which the ground was strewn in front ot th? Russian trenches. Half way between Peiisat and Zagalince the Turkish dead were lyioe so close they might have shaken hands with the Russians lying inside. It was a desperate attack and a desperate re sistance. Ihe attack seems to have been well directed. It was made so suddenly and violently that Jhe Russian redoubt was taken almost by surprise. The first time it was, io fact, taken almost before General Zotoff knew the attack had begun. It would have been much better for Gen, Zotoff to have retreated and drawn the Turks out into the open country, where their ioaptoess at executing manoeuvers on tne neid ol tattle would have put them at a great disadvantage with the well drilled Russian troops. But Many Persons were Killed and the ' Loss ia Immense. New York, Sept 4. The Evening Post says the scene of the great fire at 35th street and 10th avenue yesterday was, this morning, a wilderness of ruins. The burned area between 10th and 11th ave nue extends from the middle of the block on north side of 34th street, to the middle of the block on the north Bide of 36th St. In addition to this a number of buildings were gutted er damaged, on the west side of 10th avenue. - The ruins resemble those of the burned town, blackened walls stick and stand at irregular intervals of space between the covered piles of bricks and fragments. Iron, large and small, is twisted and warped out of all resemblance to the original beams, girders and ma chinery. Only one engine was at work to day, close by the remains of the engine which the firemen were obliged to abandon yesterday. Lack of water yesterday was due to the small size of the mains in the neighbor hoodwhich were laid in the days of the hand engines and are only six inches in diameter. This nioroiag the hydrants furnished only about five pounds pressure apiece, instead of 20 or 25. Among the relics were tbe remains of a cart and the blackened skeleton of a horse. In the yard of Hunt's pickle factory a team was all ready to be driven away at the time the fire cut off the means of escape. David Shannon, who occupied apart ments at 512 West Thirty-fifth street, and who left his room at the outbreak of the fire, was caught in the crowd and was un able to return till the building was in fltu.es. He is a contractor, and twk home $2,000 in greenbacks the night before to pay his workmen yesterday. He had placed the money under bis pillow and it was burnt up. J he reports in regard to the loss of life are as conflicting as yesterday. Many ner- soo8 still believe a large number of bodies will finally be dug out ot the ruins of Hale s piano factory. Others believe the loss of life is comparatively slight. Among the latter is Capt. Washburn, who thinks the workmen in the upper stories had time to escape to the roof of the new factory bef ore the latter took fire, and passed down its stairways to the street. ihe following named persons have been reported to the Twentieth precinct itation- house as being missing since tho fire: John Kotupruet, aged 21 years. 135 avenue: A. Edward Bisch, aged 31 years, 19 Scale street, ifrooklyn bd. Bisch had a wife and three children; George Grehe, aged about 60. No. 239 West Thirty second street, had a wife and tatuilv, and John Kautch, 19 years, 306 West Thirty-eighth street. These persons were all reported missing by relatives or near friends. Some other cases have been reported by irresponsible persons, to which the police do not attach any ituportauce. Ihe heat of the ruins is such that it will be impossible to dig into ttem at present.
