The Senate bill for the relief of Charles B. Varney of Portland, Me., passed. The Senate bill to provide for the sale of the reservation of confederated Otoe and Missouri Indians in Kansas and Nebraska passed. Impeachment business followed, and after an executive session Mr. Morrill of Maine, called up the legislative, judicial and executive ap propriation bill, with the understanding that it should be unfinished business and come np for consideration at the expiration of the morning hoar iomorrow. Senate then proceeded to consider bills on the calendar not objected to, and several private bills passed. Adjourned. HOUSE. Mr. Durham, from the Committee on Re vision of the Laws, called up the bill perfecting the revision of. the statutes of the United States which was passed. House proceeded to consider the bill to pro mote the efficiency of the army, to provide for its gradual reduction and to consolidate certain of the staff departments. Mr. Small offered an amendment providing that in the enlistment of men in the army or merging of enlisted men into other organiza tions, no distinction be made on account of race or ooior. Mr. Bandall objected. Mr. Macky moved to amend by striking out the section which provides for the repealing of the law which requires that enlisted men of certain regiments shall be colored men. Mr. O’Brien objected. Mr. Macky said that as his amendment was objected to the practical effect of the bill would be to discontinue the enlistment of colored men in the army nniil another war broke out. It was an indirect way of getting rid of the colored troops. Mr. Hnrlbut offered a substitute for the bill, directing the President to appoint a commis sion of seven officers of the army of disvin guished service and knowledge who shall re port to the President their opinion of the best method of reorganizing the army,and especially on the best method of reorganizing the staff department with a view to economy and effi ciency.

Mr. Ward of New York explained the bill and said it was in the interest of both seamen and shipowners. Mr. Seelye opposed the part of the bill which takes away the appointment of the commis sioners from circuit judges and places it with the Secretary of the Treasury. He moved to recommit the bill. The motion was defeated and the bill was passed.

NOT ONE LEFT ALIVE, Cincinnati. Ohio, Jane 1.—A despatch from Lincoln, Nebraska, gives the following par ticulars of the massacre by the Indians of a large portion of Capt. Stone’s company of Cin cinnatians en route for the Black Hills: Part of the expedition was passing through the sand hills about fifty miles from Bed Cloud Agency. The day was warm and the roads nearly impassable from sand. The men had deposited their coats and weapons in the wagons and were straggling wearily behind when the Indians rushed down and cut them off from the train. The massacre followed with but little resistance, the Indians number ing several hundred. The leaders of the party, Capt. Stone and James Wood, were among the first to fall. The names of the others killed as far as ascertained were, Stone, Armstrong Kelley, Hudlestone, West, Walinsky, Barr Labayteax, Boner, Wunek, Old, Ware, Shat tenger, Latts, Krnnck, Mozeante, Kaddle, Mc Keag, Leaner ana two drivers. The bearer of the report declares that Dot a single one of the party of 49 men escaped. 8everal bodies scilped and mutilated were taken to North Louis Fort. It is stated that nearly all the In dians have left their agencies and are on thw war path, The New Orleans Investigation. New Orleans, June 1.—The Congressional • Committee commenced the investigation with open doors to-day. All the members were present except Mr. Blackburn, who is en route to Washington by order of Speaker Kerr. Internal Beveuue Supervisor P. H, Hunt was the first witness. He was examined in regard to the crooked whiskey matters and attempts to bribe public officers. On his way to New Orleans in ’75 he stopped at Holly Springs, where he met Walohe, a distiller of this city. Walche stated to witness that they (the distillers) had paid his predecessor, J. K. Cobb, 81000 per month, amounting to 812,000 or 814,000, and desired to make some arrange ment with witness. Hunt came on to New Orleans afterwards and appointed new gaugers and store keepers for the Cary distillery and found a gain of a gallon per bushel increase in the produc tion. The distillery only ran five days after these chances. Cnnapnncmtl IT fha infamnno was they had been making a large percentage of crooked whiskey. It had been customary to withdraw 40 or 50 barrels per day, but three days before the local officials seized the Cary distillery about 400 or 500 barrels were with drawn. The inference was that the officials had notified the distillers of the intention to seize. The amount of revenue due, for which the distillery was seized, was $24,000. ■Hunt dismissed Todd and Harran for irregu larities,bat the were soon after employed lu the Custom House.

Mulligan Tells a Ridiculous Story. How Mr. Blaine Recovered Some Private Letters. mr. Blaine’s Own Statement. [Special to tbe Press.] ■Washington, June 1.—While Blaine’s ene mies are making the most of Mulligan’s testi mony his friends are enthusiastic over the pres ent status of tbe case. They insist that Blaine is perfectly right in holding letters to prevent the publication of private matters which can have nothing to do with the investigation, and urge him not to yield a single point. Mulli gan’s story about consulship and suicide is too ridiculously absurd to notice. The sub-commit tee of the investigation is controlled by Huton of Virginia, and Ashe of North Carolina, two notorious rebels, who are very bitter on Mr. Blaine. _ Mat. mulligan’. Testimony. [To the Associated Pressl Washington, June 1.—The examination of Mulligan was continued today. He wanted to make a statement before continuing bis exam ination, and said that wben he arrived here a note came down from Blaine, requesting him and Fisher to eall at his house. Witness de clined to go but Fisher went. After witness testified yesterday Blame called upon him and asked him abont some letters which were in his possession, and wanted witness to give them up, tut witness declined to do so. Witness said Blaine almost got down on his knees and plead ed for the letters, saying that they would rnin him. He besought witness to think of his wire and six children, and almost contemplated snicide. Witness then allowed Blaine to take the let ters under pledge that he would return them, and he looked them over and did return them. This was in the presence of Fisher and At kins. Witness then retired to his room and Blaine followed him, and wanted to look at the letters again. Witness allowed Blaine to take them and Blaine refused to return them. No one was present this time but Blaine and witness. There were about eighteen letters in all. While tbis statement was being made Blaine sat at a table opposite the witness, and exhibited con siderable mirth at the statements, laughing out right at the remark abont snicide, and when witness closed, Blaine rose at once and asked to be sworn, and to be allowed to make a counter statement. The chairman objected to it at that time but assured Blaine that be should have an opportunity. Witness was asked if he knew the contents of the letters, and what their contents were as far as they related to the Union Pacific bonds, but Blaine objected to witness giving the con A A- A-V- .. __* tl 1 1 1 statement. Frye said, assuming the statement about the letters to be as witness stated, he thought it proper for Blaine to be heard. These letters were private letters of Blaine to Fisher, they I were kept in Fisher’s safe, and witness had no business with them, bat had got possession of them and brought them here, and they refer redd in no manner weatever to the Union Pa cific bonds that were represented as going to Col. Scott Hunton thought the committee, in the ab sence of the letters themselves, had a right to inquire about and know their contents if they bore upon the matter at issue. He proposed that Blaine put the letters in the possession of the committee and let the committee decide for themselves. Blaine said that on the ground of fair play he should be allowed to make a statement in relation to what transpired last night as the statement made by witness was now being tel egraphed all over the country and would ap pear in the afternoon papers, and when they got through his examination it would be too late for his exDlanation to reach tbe press. Tho committee, however, decided that the witness should be examined first. He said one letter contained an allusion to tbe bonds and Blaine’s losses in the transac tion, and that Blaine said he did not retain the money in his possession 48 hours. Witness further explained that Fisher knew he had those letters and allowed him to have them, and he also said that when they were alone last night Mr. Blaine talked politics to him and asked him how he would like to run a committee, and if he would not like a consul ship. Hunton then asked Blaine to submit the let letters, and the memorandum made from them by Mulligan, to tbe committee for their private examination. Blaine said he must for the present decline to do this but if, in the judgment of counsel who would command the committee’s ontire confidence, they had any bearing upon the pending inquiry he would produce them. He did not want tho committee’s verdict on the pending charge to be delayed by their going into purely private matters outside the case. Mr. Blaine’s Statement, At the conclusion of Mulligan’s examination Blaine made the following statement under oath: This witness opened his statement this morn ing by detailing some facts in regard to tbe possession by him of certain letters which came into my possession. To begin where he did, I received through a third Darty a telegram on Monday stating that Mr. Fisher and Mulligan were on their way as witnesses, the latter un friendly. Just at that time my mind was con siderably filled with the story about the North ern Paoific matter, which had come ont through tbe letter of Mr. Aquilla Adams, who was formerly connected with Mr. Fisher in busi ness, and when I ascertained on what train Fisher was coming, I sent a servant with a note to his hotel, saying I would like to have him and Mulligan call at my house at their leisure in relation to the Northern Pacific matter and Adams’ letter. Fisher called. Mulligan was not willing to call. X called at the Briggs House and I found Mulligan sitting in a bar ber’s chair. I shook hands with him. We are not new acquaintances. I have known him twenty-five years, and I said, addressing him as I had been in the habit of doing, “James, they report that you are here an enemy of mine.” He made some jocular or rather evasive answer, and then said he didn’t want to come to my house because he didn’t wish to f*ixnvpren tritli ma ltavn in --- 1_. • I _ matter before he testified. X had a little con versation alterwards directly with Mr. Fisher, in which Fisher said to me that Mulligan had a good many of my private letters, that he did not know or did not think they were on the subject of the investigation, but that they em braced a large portion of the business which for a number of years had been going on be tween Fisher and myself. Mr. Fisher has been au intimate acquaintance of mine for more than twenty years. He was for a considerable period associated with mv wife’s brother in business in Boston and Mr. Mulligan was the confidential clerk for many years of another brother of my wife’s in business, so that I know the parties intimately. Fisher intimated that Mulligan had these let ters, and without distinctly saying so he gave me to understand that he was not the least re luctant to get them all out whether they bore upon the matter under investigation or not I did not converse with Mulligan at all until yes terday, when I discovered, X thought, a very great readiness on his part to travel out of the record and tell a great many things relating to my private business, which did not belong at all to the subject of investigation and seeing that I did not want to go into those matters until I could have a little conversation with him upon the subject. X thought it was highly improper and unjust that he should do so, be cause it broadened the field of the examination and prevented my having a report or verdict upon the case particularly ou hand. So the committee was adjourned by Judge Lawrence’s request after I had spoken with him. After the adiournment I called on the three gentlemen, Messrs. Atkins, Fisher and Mulli gan, at the Biggs House, and in the parlor of Mr. Atkins I had some conversation with Mul ligan about these letters and asked him to show them to me. He did show them with some apparent reluctance. I said to him, "Why, vou are not afraid of my keeping them are you?” and he said, "No" and handed them to me. 1 looked them all over and discovered that there was only one letter in the list that at all bore upon the question before the com mittee and even that by a forced construction and not in reality. X handed them back to him. The conversation then became somewhat general between the four gentlemen, including myself, in the room. After a little while Mul ligan went up stairs to Mr. Fisher’s room right overhead. I was talking with Atkins and Mr. Fisher for a few minutes and then X started up to Fisher’s room and knocked at the door, and was admitted, and there I talked with Mulligan for some time. I may have been there I think i the better part of an hour, but the form that he j gives the interview about my offering him a 1 consulshin and ahnnt m 1- hi!i ncr rninml and oil i that sort of thing, was mere fancy. Nothing of the kind occurred. I talked as calmly as I am ! talkmg this morniDg. Very soon I said to him, “I would like to see one letter ! among these,” I wanted to see the ! letter on which he based his testimony, i He handed me the package. I looked them all over and I said to him as I said afterwards in i the presence of Mr. Fisher and Mr. Atkins, I Now you keep that letter which you think i bears on this matter” (That is the letter he ! testified to this morning.) “lam perfectly! willing you should keep that, but here is a 1 mass of my private correspondence covering many years and detailing matters that have ; nothing to do with the subject of the investiga' ' tion which it would probably be embarrassing 1 to me to have published, as auy man’s private ! correspondence would bo. and I don’t want 1 these letters published. You ought to give me those letters, you have no right with them, i There are only two persons in the world that 1 have a right to them. One is the writer and the other the person to whom thev were writ ten. Now if vou will give these letters to Mr. Fisher I will be abundantly satisfied, they will then be in the rightful ownership. They will be in safe hands.,’ Fisher had before himself in my presence re quested that they should be given to him in the first conversation in the lower room. Mul ligan refused. He said he didn’t know what might transpire in his examination today, and he said with a good many “By Gods” that he was going to hold these letters for his protoc- 1 tion, his vindication. X said, “When you get ! through the examination will you give them to me?” He said “No. if anybody impugns my motives” (he pronounced it in that way)“or in any way questions my veracity in the papers I shall publish these letters.” i I said, “You do not think X would attack you in the papers, there is nothing to make me attack you in the papers.” ' He said, “Well, if anybody did he should publish them.” I had been running over the letters for some time but the first time when he handed them to me he had shown reluctance, and as I have stated I remarked, “You are not afraid of my keeping them” and he answered, “Oh, no,” and handed them to me without any assurance at all or without anything said about it, and I had no idea of doing anything else than hau 1 ing them back until he annouucei his purpose and determination that no matter who should question his testimony or impeach or impugn his veracity he would publish the letters.” “I said, “These letters relate to matters that have no more connection or relationship with the examination now going on before the Ju diciary Committee than the man in the moon, and it would be grossly unfair that you should treat my private correspondence in that way.” I then said to him, “Will you ring the bell for a servant and tell him to send Mr. Fisher up from the lower room?” He did so, and very, soon Mr. Fisher came up and we had a little conversation, in which 1 repeated before Fisher what Mulligan had said—his declaration, or rather his menace. I said, “This is very grossly unfair, Mr. Fisher.” I then said I would be glad if Mr. Fisher would take charge of the letters, that they were rightfully in his possession or right fully in mine, but not in any third person’s hands. Mulligan repeated again in Fisher’s presence this declaration that he would feel himself at liberty to publish these letters at auy time he saw fit if anybody should provoke him unto wrath by auy comment on bis testi mony, and owing to the somewhat enlarged facilities in the American press for making criticisms upon everybody, I tound that my private correspondence hung by the thread of his taking offence at any of the thousand and one paragraphs that might be set afloat in tbo papers, and I said to him, “Under these cir cumstances 1 will not give those letters up," and in order that he might not he mistaken as to the ground of my action, 1 called Mr. At kins Irom the lower room, for I wanted to tell him the grounds on which I stood. I said, “I will not return these letters be cause yon threaten to make a use of them which is illegitimate, which is unfair, which is entirely uDjust, and I have no idea that auy man shall take my private correspondence and hold it as a menace over my head, to be used at his beck or option for his own purposes or uudgr somebody’s direction." We went down stairs and he repeated and reaffirmed his statement with very great em phasis, and 1 said, “Very good; I will retain the letters.” * When I went home I sent for two friends, one a member of the House of Representatives and the other a lawyer in this city, and I b»’ every one of these letters before them— letters which would “disgrace mo for life,” ane “send my children sorrowing to the grave,” and “deprive me of political honors,” and all that. I sat down and read every one of them just in the order in which they were marked and numbered by Mulligan himself. 1 then said to these gentlemcc, “After consultation I am going to submit those to two of the wisest and best counsel that I can find in the city of Washington to morrow (that is to-day) and I will be guided entirely by them in the action I shall take before the Judiciary Committee. If they say auy of those letters 1 should be iu duty hound to deliver, if they intimate to me that there is anything in the letters which Dears even remotely or otherwise upon the subject of these interviews, those letters shall be delivered, but I shall wait to be guided by their opinion as to what I ought to do in the premises.” . As to the bulk of those letters you might just as well send to my house for any packaee from my files of correspondence for the last five years and put it here as evidence in the inves tigation. Many of them relate to business transactions which are passed and settled up, and tybich I do not want revived, not that there is anything in them which is any degree em barrassing. I have read over freely to those two friends and as I say I will read them over freely to those two counsel. There is nothing in those letters that I shall have occasion to blush over. The result is that I postponed my action until I could have this conference in re gard to it. There was auother reason which made it peculiarly exasperating to me; that is that in the month of September, 1872, Fisher and I, after a very long, and in tbo main, very pleas ant business relation extending back to a pe riod when I was a very young man, had a final settlement in which we exchanged receipts in full. I think the precise date was September 21,1872. It was then said that all the letters on either side and all papers and scraps of pa pers should be given up, and I supposed they were given up. These letters had been written carelessly as business letters often are. 1 got a great many letters from him and I gave up all that I had. Mulligan claims that Mr. Fisher gave those letters to him; that he has a right to them, and that he had the right to dispose of that correspondence, which is all of it private. When I said to him that it was all a private correspondence, he said, “Why. a public mao has no private correspondence, and can have no private correspondence.” He says, “The let ter of a public man is public.” That was the ground he took in the conversation, and es pecially if a letter was not marked private. Some of these letters are, however, marked “private”. Some are marked “personal”, and some “confidential”. I insisted that it was the grossest possible outrage, I said, “You take these letters before the committee without the committee designing me any wrong, they go outto the world and then when it is seen that; they have no possible relevancy all that there is objectionable in the publication has been achieved and accomplished, and it will be too late for me to intei pose objection then. In other words the very test of their admissibility involves that I myself protest against the use of entirely private letters which have no reve lancy whatever to the case in hand.” I took that ground, and on that ground I stand now. I justify myself for not returning tbo letters. It was be that was in unlawful possession of those letters. He had no right to those letters. 1 take the ground about distinct ly that thero are but two men that possess a rightful interest in a private correspondence— the writer and the person written to—and on that right I stand now. I shall produce the let ter with great freedom on which Mr. Mulligan has based his testimony that I acknowledged having received the §04,000, and I shall show you it has no relation to that subject. By Mr. Frye—Do not gome of those letters relate to matters transpiring long before you became a member of Congress. A—Yes; long before I beoame a member of Congress the first time. Chairman—As 1 understand you, and as I especially understood from Mulligan, you had possession of those letters on two occasions? Blaine—Yes. Chairman—On the first occasion you promis ed to return them? Blaine—It did not assume so formal a shape A nuuugUU UO CAU1UIVCU cl 1 I LI lo hesitancy in handing the letters to me, and I said to him, “Yon don’t think I would keep them, do you?” It was rather an interroga tional remark. Do not know whether Mr. Fisher or Atkins were in the room when I.first got them, but both of them came in while I was reading and looking over the letters. I handed them back to Mulligan. Chairman—Why did you have the second in terview in Mulligan’s room in the absence of those two gentlemen? Blaine—It was Mr. Mulligan who left the room, not I. I wanted to satisfy myself with respect to a specific letter. Fifteen letters make rather a voluminous correspondence to remem ber all about, f went and told him I should like to see a specific letter, and be handed me the package. Chairman—When you got the letters the sec ond time was it your intention to return them to Mulligan? Blaine—Yes. Chairman—You changed your intention upon his declaration that if his veracity were assailed he would publish the letters. Blaine-Yes. POLITICAL. VERMONT DEMOCRATS. W. H.

Secretary Robeson’s Explanation. Washington, June 2.—Secretary appeared before the House Committe al Affairs today and explained at leng count with A.G. Cattell & Co,which be was fully settled on the 13th of O He paid them in money value. The wrong done him was in the publication of detached portions of the testimony. The committee would see by a fair analysis that he had tnrned from one account back to another covering a hundred pages in order to give this explana tion. The Secretary also referred to the testimony of Mr Lewis, receiver of the late firm of Jay Cooke & Co. At the time the firm failed he owed it $18,000 in two amounts, $10,000 and $8000. This latter amount was mentioned in the testimony seven times, making it appear to be $56,000. The Secretary circumstantially re lated his business transactions with A.G. Cat tell & Co., at that period from which it ap peared he had loaned them $25,600, or $7,600 more than he had to pay. The Cattell’s began to pay him back as was convenient, and the ac count was closed by their giving him a check for $2,500. The Secretary produced all tho notes and checks. The indebtedness to the firm of Jay Cooke & Co. was settled. The Secretary also explained the item of $13,000 which appeared on Cattell’s books as amount owing by him for a building lot and cottage at Long Branch. The property was not at Long Branch but two miles off at Mon mouth Beach. In 1871 a uumber of gentlemen formed a company and entered into a specula tion by buying a farm on credit dividing it into building lots. He went into the speculation believing with the gentlemen that they could sell enough of the property to pay them ail back what they had advanced and make a good deal of money besides. It was not, however, convenient for him at that time to go into the speculation and spend money. A. G. Cattell covered his shares as bad been done for several} other subscribers. The Secretary never had any agreement with the firm aboutithis business. It was withA. G. Cattell himself for a deed of one-half of a piece of property on 16th street, which was worth about $30,000. As much had been said about A. G. Oattell’s receiving commissions on con tracts the Secretary desired to say that such transaction ons Cattell’s part were iu all re spects unknown and unauthorized by him. He said his relations with A. G. Cattell & Co. were such that if in a legitimate way and busi ness as other people they could by contracts in lheir,line make money he should not bo sorry, altl&^jh he would prefer that they should not have coMracts. He had no personal knowl odge of the Callells receiving commissions on contracts. Information, howevsr, reached him 18 months ago that E. G. Cattell had applied to certaiu persons to be employed by them in connection with their contracts He recollect ed hearing of John Roach, Cromp Swift, a live oak contractor, and Quintard being approach ed. He did not remember who informed him about this matter. When he spoke to anybody he was perfectly certain that in every instance he said that Mr. Cattell must have nothing to do with the contracts of the Navy Department other than in the line of their legitimate busi ness.

London, June 1.—The Times’ correspondent telegraphs from Constantinople the following account of the revolution: After vainly soliciting the Sultan to adopt reforms, the Grand Vizier, and Hassein Ann! Pasha, aud Midhat Pasha resolved ti depose him. The Dalma Baghtiche palace was beset with troops. Murad was proclaimed Sultan in the presence of all the ministers, the Sheik ul Islam and Mollah’s men. Suliman Pasha, ac companied by soldiers and officers, informed Abdul Aziz that the nation had deposed him, and that he should deliver up the palace to his successor. The attitude of the troops con vinced Aziz that resistance was impossible, and he, with his family household and 53 boats filled with women, were conveyed under escort to Topkapon Palace. Prance, Italy aud Eng land have recognized Murad as Sultan. Servia Preparing for War. The Times’ Berlin despatch says that in con sequence of the appointment of the new Sul tan, Servia has apparently determined to antic pate the attack which it considers imminent. Tbe Servian government, Tuesday, issued a decree closing all the schools and eveu the courts, during the impending war. The Prince of Milau will act as commander inchief and various divisions of the Servian army are placed under Rnssian officers, many of whom have arrived at Belgrade. The people of Germany begin to realize that a collision between Servia and Turkey is im minent, aud Russia, finding her policy sudden ly crossed by the Turkish national party, can not afford to accept defeat on the Sclavonian question. The Ex-Sullaa. A special despatch to the Daily News from Vienna, says that it is officially announced that Abdul Aziz is alive, and has bron placed under a strong guard. It is reported that the treasure in his possession amounting to $100. C00 has been seized. Tbe amount of the ex Sultan’s treasure re ported in the News’Vienna special as Laving been seized, is $1CO,OOO.OCO ipstead of $100,000 as first reported. Garibaldi has gone to Caprera on a monih’s leave of absence, on account of bis health. FINANCIAL AND COI?I flEUCIAL Daily Donaetdic Receipt!*.

D., Author of “The People’s Common Sense Medical Adviser.” A healthy liver secretes each day about two and a half pounds of bile, which contains a great amount of waste material taken from the blood. When the liver becomes torpid or congested, it fails to elimin ate this vast amount of noxious substance, which, therefore, remains to poison the blood, and be con • veyed to every part of the system. What must be the condition of the blood when it is receiving and retaining each day two and a half pounds of poison? Natures tries to work oft this poison through other channels and organs—the kidneys, lungs, skin, etc., but these organs become overtaxed in performing this labor in addition to their natural functions, and cannot long withstand the pressure, but become va riously diseased. The brain, which is the great electrical center of all vitality, is unduly stimulated by the unhealthy blood which passes to it lrom the heart, and it fails to perform its office healthily. Hence the symptoms of bile poisoning, which are dullness, headache, in capacity to keep the mind on any subject, impair ment of memory, dizzy, sleepy, or nervous feelings, gloomy forebodings, and irritability of temper. The blood itself being diseased, as it forms the sweat up on the surface of the skin, it is so irritating and poi sonous that it produces discolored brown spots, pim ples, blotches, and other eruptious, sores, boils, car buncles, and scrofulous tumors. The stomach, bow els, and other organs, cannot escape becoming affect ed, sooner or later, and we have as the result, costiv ness, piles, dropsy, dyspepsia, diarrhooea. Other symptoms are common, as bitter or bad taste in mouth, internal heat, palpitation, teasing cough, un steady appetite, choking sensation in throat, bloating of stomach, pain in sides or about shoulders or back, coldness of extremities, etc., etc. Only a few of the above symptoms are likely to be present in any case at one time. The liver being the great depurating, or blood-cleansing organ of the system, set this great “housekeeper of our health” at work, and the foul corruptions which gender in the blooa. and rot out, as it were, the machinery of life, are gradually ex pelled from the system. For this purpose, Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery, with very small doses daily of Dr. Pierce’s Pleasant P#urgative Pel lets, is pre-eminently the articles needed. They cure every kind of humor from the wor.-t scrofula to the common pimple, blotch, or eruption. Great eating ulcers kiudly heal under their mighty curative influ ence. Virulent blood poisons that lurk in the system are by them robbed of their terrors, and by their per severing and somewhat protracted use the most tainted systems may be completely renovated and built up anew. Enlarged glands, tumors, and swel lings dwindle away and disappear under the influ ence of these great resolvents. oc29 j u2eod&w 1 w SPECIAL NOTICES. XJSE Kcnne’s Magic Oil !
