G. FARRELL'S ARABIAN LINIMENT far beyond any similar remedy. Mr. II. G. Farell Dear Sir: Actnsted bv a sense of gratefulness, I sabmit the followinsr as an in stance oi the utility of jour great medicine. My cnna, tnree years old, was suddenly attacked with a terrible disease, which in less than six hours prostrated it to total helplessness. The limbs be came so rigid that not a joint could be bent ; the flesh turned black and cold and entirely deprived of feelins: the eves fixed, nartlallv closed and al together blind, following this was deafness to all sounds; the spine became contracted and so curved that when lying on its back the head and heels only touched. Indeed, the child presented every ap pearance of beinz dead. Immediately on the at tack, the family physician was called in, and for three weeks he labored to restore it to feeling, but ail in vain, although it was blistered a dozen times and various rubclacicnt Liniments applied . A con sult&tion of physicians was then held, but to no purpose, the case was then brought before the Medical Society, but nothing could be suggested which had not already been done, and the doctor then told me he cnnlrl rionothine more. We then commenced applying your Liniment freely over the i enure lengui oc tno epine, ana you may imagine i parent's joy, when, alter a few applications, re turning animation was apparent, ana it rapidly re covered with the exception of the sight, which did not become perfect for near a month. The child is now healthy and robust as can be. ITlve other cases oi the same kind occured previously in my neighboorhood, all of which died, when there is no doubt if your Liniment had been used they would nave recovered. iiexrt u. clelajto.
