The met extraordinary discovery in the World
is Me Great Arabian Remedy for Man
and Beast.
LINIMENT is a must extraordinary medicine,
the truth of which is placed beyond doubt by
(be vast sales of the article and the many cures
being daily performed by it, which previously
had resisted all other medicines and the skill
of the best physicians in the world. It is com
posed of balsams, extracts and gums peculiar
to Arabia—possessing, in a concentrated form,
all their stimulating, anodyne, penetrating, unc
tuous and revulsive properties, and the same
which, ages ago, were used by the "Sons of the
Desert," with such miraculous success, in cu
ring the diseases of both man and beast.
Read the following remarkable cure, which
should ql f' place IL C. Farrell's
Arabian Liniment
.far beyond
any similar rinetly.
Mr. 11. Cu. Farrell—Dear Sir: Actuated by
a sense of gratefulness, I submit the following
ns an instance of the utility of your great med
icine. My child, three years old, was sudden.
ly attacked with a terrible disease, which in
less than six hours prostrated it to total help
lessness. The limbs became so rigid that not
a joint could ho bent; the flesh turned black
and cold and entirely deprived of feeling; the
eyes fixed, partially closed and altogether blind,
following this was deafness to all sound:;; the
spine became contracted and so curved that
when lying on its back the head and heels on
ly touched. Indeed, the child presented every
appearance of being dead. Immediately on
the attack, the family physician was called in,
and for three weeks 'he labored to restore it to
feeling, but all in vain, although it was blister.
ed a dozen:times and various ruhefacient Lini.
menni applied. A consultation 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 al
ready been done, and the doctor then told me
be could do nothing more. We then commen
ced applying your Liniment freely over the en
tire length of the spine, and you may imagine
a parent's joy, when, after a few applications,
returning animation was apparent, and it rap
idly recovered 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.
Five other cases of the same kind occurred
previously in my neighborhood, all of which
died, when there is no doubt if your Liniment
bad been used thee would have recovered.
Peoria, March 1 1851.
Look out for Counterfeits!
The public are cautioned against another
counterfeit, which has lately made its appear.
once, called W. B. Farrell's Arabian Liniment,
the most dahgerous of all the counterfeits, be
cause his having the name of Farrell, many
will buy it in good faith, without the knowledge
that a counterfeit exists, and they will perhaps
only discover their error when the spurious
mixture has wrought its evil effects.
The genuine article is manufrctured only by

Is with this object that medicines are prepared

subject. Itis the sumo with the baker and butch

thoughtful and skilful to devise and prepare in
convenient form, suitable remedies for the afflic

turing fit of C'hills and Fevcr, , is nut in a right
condition to study out the means of relief; and it
is more sensible and natural that he should look
to others, than to depend upon his own prostrated
energies for the antidote. For an appropriate
and valuable remedy, therefore, it is folly to ob

The invalid should inquire into the testimony
presented to establish its value; the testimony
should be carefully investigated, and just so much
credit given to it, and no snore, than it deserves.
If of a personal character, we should look to the
respectability of the witnesses, and tho opportu
nity which they have had for an observation of
the facts, and the probable imoartiallt,y, and con
sequent truthfulness, of their statements. Cor
roborating statements of a number of respectable
witnesses to the truth of any fact, may amount
to irresistible evidence.
We might enter into a detailed account of the
study and labor incident to its preparation—of
the scientific principles upon which it is based—
of the necessity which exists, in the very nature
of the compound, for effecting immediate cures
in almost every instance—and of the character
and respectability of the witnesses who have tee
titied to the astonishing cures which it has ince
richly performed. Wu might enumerate other
cases, and cite the testimony of others, and in
deed weary our reader with repetitions of cases.
