Will Be 'Made In the Wages of Sec
tion Hands. .
The great scarcity in the number
of section hands is causing consider
able discussion in railroad circles.
Section hands are usually paid $1.2 5
a day, and with boarding at $4 a
week, men are not crowding forward
at a-very fast rate to accept jobs. At
present 40 men could find employ
ment on the local divisions.
The matter of increasing wages of
section men is now under advisement
with the officials of the Erie road,
who will no doubt' take the illative
step in remedying the difficulty by
advancing the price of common work
from $1.25 to $1.35 and $1.60 a day.
The new scale may go into effect in
the near future. .
- Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local application's, as they cannot reach
the diseased portion ot the ear. There Is
only one way to cure deafne.nnd that Is by
constitutional remedies. Deafness Is caused
by an Inflamed condition of the mucous lin

cets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it Is entirely
closed deafness'is the result, and unless the
inflammation can be taken out nnd this tube
restored to Its normal condition, hearing
will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of
ten are caused by catarrh, i hlch is nothlnf
