DEAFNESS CAN'NOT BE CURED
by local applications, as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to cure deafness, and that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of the mu
cous linifig of the Eustachian Tube. When
this tube gets inflamed you have a rum
bling sound or imperfect hearing. and
when it is entirely closed deafness is the
result, and unless the inflamation can be
taken out and this tube restored to its nor
mal condition, hearing will be destroyed
forever; nine cases out of ten are cau'sed by
catarrh, which is nothing bnt an inflamed
condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for any
case of deafneos (caused by catarrh) that
cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure.

Last week a piano tuner was in town,
and he called on sonic ladies interested in
one of our church organs. They told him
that the organ needed tuning and that be
might look at it. So the man hunted up the
keeper of the keys and took a look at the
organ, and without doing any work he
went back to let the ladies know how much
it would coat. The ladies were out visit
ing, and while the tuner was on the way to
their house they went into the church, and
thinking the organ was fixed, played sev
eral tunes and came out. On the street
they met the man and to him expressed
their great satisfaction at the improvement
he made in the instrument, and paid him
a handsome compliment on his skill. The
man did not have the f ace to tell them that
he had not touched the organ, so he smiled,
boiwed, and possibly uttered a silent prayer
of thanks that he was alive. Then he left
town on the next train.

Editor The Manning Times:-The r(

the Columbia Register is the utterance of a
man who has the true interest of the Re

man in public life who has received the
ensure and vituperation that .lcLaurin
bas, and there is no man who has, by his
icts, given the lie to the chargers against

resentative of the people. The true

means a "flop" from his allegiance to right

is to be brought abcut on'y by th: means
:hat he suggests; that there is a dangerous
ring that proposes to make the approach
ng constitutional convention a step for
political and personal advancement, we do
acot deny. Rings are the natural result of
politics. The question, however, that we
tre called upon to meet, is the best plan to
be pursued that will bring the white peo
ple of the State together. As Mr. McLaur
in says let us, in electing delegates, lose
ight of party lines altogether and make
he convention non-factional. If the ring,
hat Mr. McLaurin speaks of does exist, it
behooves every true reformer to see that it

:f the South, and even when it is selling at
m low price, the farmers might make some
thing ont of it, if they raise their own hog

the finanicial question figures largely in the
>ver production of cotton (so cadied). If
every man in the land had all the cotton
goods he needed, there would be no over
production. Thousands of people have
>nly one shirt, (and may be two) who would
gladly have half a dozen or a ilozen, if they
were able to buy them. They have, not the
money with which to purchase the-u, and
they cannot get them on credit, and hence
there is an under-consumption of cotton
goods. We do not take much stock in con
ventions, getting together, and advising
farmers to phant less cotton. Nothing
could produce a larger crop~ of cotton than
the unanimous opinion of all our farmers
that a small crop would be planted. We
have never seen it fail, that when the
planters themselves are fully satisfied
the'e is going to be a small crop, that each
individual, and the larger planters general
ly, increa%e their acreage, wishing toi take
advantage of the protability thr.: cotton
will be worth more the next year. 'This to
some erxtent, was the cause of the big crop
of 1894, everybody thought there would be
a short crop, anid that cotton wouldl be
worth more in 1891k than it wa~s in 1893.
Whereas the opposite has proven to be
true. We await with patience the cotton

of this city want him. The mere possibility of
retaining a man who will play into the hands

Croker. makes my heart ache. I tell you with
an aching heart that although we worked long
and hard for the victory we are not in a way to
realize on it. I do not want to see our superb
Mayor Strong prevented from doing what
he wants to do and what he knows
he ought to do. but I fear that is what
will happen. We werc promised a power

professional politicians. The fact is we know
so well what ought to be done. Nevertheless

"Fellow citizens of South Carolina: In
consequence of thie c->mplete failure of the
provision crops of Nebraska hundreds of
amilies are suffering the pangs of starva
tion. Additional horror is given to their
forlorn and unfortunrge condition by the
fact that the unfortunates are exposed to
the severities of a winter unusually ardu
ous even for that section.
"These destitute farmers have appealed
to their fellow citizens of the houthern
States for aid. Neighboring States have
heard their cry of distress and their citizens
are opening their hearts to themi in this
their hour of terrible need.
"The Young Men's Business League, of
Charleston. has undertaken to collect and
forward uany supplies that the charitable
peope of south Carolina cau spare for this
aeserving purpose. The contributions
which 'are asked are corn, meal, meat, cloth
ing and money. The farmers of this State
have tbeen especially blessed by providence
with a superabundance or corn,and it is be
lieved that they will be glad of aniopportu
nity to contribute to the relief of their fel
low famrers of Nebraska. 'The railroads
have generously consented to forward any
supplies for this purpose ,to the bead
quarters of the League in this city; from
which point they will be forwarded in bulk
to their final destination. He who gives
quickly gives well. The need of the suf
lerers is urgent."

A good way for the taxpayer, who
has much property to return, is to
make a numeration of the number of
horses, cattle,mules, sheep and goats,
hogs, watches, organs and pianos,
buggies, wagons and carriages, dogs,
merchandise, machinery, moneys,
notes and accounts, (above indebted
ness) furniture, &c., which will save
the taxpayer time, and enable the
assessor to progress in the work.
Taxpayers return what they own
on the first day of January, 1895
All personal- property, must be
returned th's year.
Assessors and taxpayers will enter
the first given name of the taxpayer
in full, also make a seperate return
for each party for the township the
property is in, and where the tax
payer owns realty, to insert the past
office as their place of residence, and
those who only own personal prop
erity, to give the party's name who
owns the land they live on as their
residence, which aids the taxpayer
as well as the county treasurer in
nmaking the collections and prevent
Every male citizen between the
ages of twenty-one and fifty years
on the first day of January, 1895, ex

other causes, shall be deemed tax
All the returns that are made after
the twentieth day of February will
have a penalty of 50 per cent, added
thereto, unless prevented by sickness
or out of the county during the time
of listing. Not knowing the time of
listing is no excuse. And all owners
of real estate, might do their tenants,
who cannot read, or take a news
paper, a great favor by making their
returns or telling thenm the time of
;ting, and that if they fail to make
their returns in time that the valua
tion has to be increased 50 per cent.
unless they have a good excuse.
The assessing and collecting of
taxes is all done now in the same
year, and we have to aggregate the
number and value of all the horses,
cattle, mules, &c., as well as the acres
of land, lots, and buildings, and their
value, that there is in the county,
and have same on fila in the Comp
troller General's office by the thir
tieth day of June each year. And
from that time to the first day of Oc
tober each year the auditor's and
treasurer's duplicate has to be com
pleted and an abstract of the work
in the Comptroller's office by Ithat
time, which will show at a glance
that the auditor has no time to take
in return or do anything else much,
between the first day of March and
the first day of October each year,
but work on the books and blanks.
Thi'efore I hope that all taxpayers
will do us the favor of making their
returns in time.
