CATARRHAL DEAPNESS CANNOT
By local applications, as they can
not reach the diseased portion of the
ear. There is only one way to cure
catarrhal deafness, and that is by a
constitutional remedy. Catarrhal
deafness is caused by an inflamed
condition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube is
inflamed you have a rumbling sound
or imperfect hearing, and when it is
entirely closed, deafness is the result.
Unless the inflammation can be re
duced, and this restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed
forever. Many cases of deafness are
caused by catharrh, which is an in
flamjmed condition of the mucous sur
faces. Hall's Catarrh Medicine acts
through the blood on the mucous sur
faces of the system.

Another warning to take all pre
cautions against the spread of influ
enza is issued by the State Board of
Health in a bulletin in which It de
clares that within the last few days
the disease has again reached .such
epidemic proportions as to require ac
tion. While the disease is far milder, and
differs from the earlier stage of the
epidemic in that it is attacking chil
dren more frequently than adults, it
i is far more prevalent and widely dis
tributed than at any previous tijine,
the Health Board says.
In general, the Board advises dur
ing this epidemic to:
1. Keep away from crowds of all
2. Keep out of the sick room and
away from houses of sickness, unless
your services are needed. Keep clean
and wear a mask if you do go.
3. Walk to your place of business
if possible avoid crowded cars.
4. Cover your cough or sneeze and
keep away from people who do not.
5. Keep away from dirty eatmg
and soft drink houses.
6. Open your windows at night,
adding extra bedding if necessary.
7. Call a physician if you or your
family show any signs of sickness.
8. After influenza, stay in bed un
til your doctor advises you to get np.
9. Do not handle anything from
the sick room until it is boiled.
10. Have and do little visiting un
til this epidemic is over.
11. Cordially co-operate with, your
Health Officer and physician in pre
venting the spread of influenza.

OPPORTUNITIES IN OIL
RECENT DEVELOPMENT IN KEN
TUCKY OF UNUSUAL MAGNITUDE.
Decided Success Attends Efforts of
Kentucky Company Big Profits
Kentucky as an oil producing stat
is coming rapidly to the fore, due
largely to the aggressive and progres
sive management of one of the .pioneer
independent oil companies of the state,
the McCombs Producing and Refining
This organization has quadrupled
its production recently simply by going
after oil when it knows it was there.
This is emphasized by the fact that
this company has as yet not drilled
what is technically called one dry
hole, that is, a non-prodacing well.
As a result it announces a 400-barrel
well just "drilled in" in the "Big
Sinking District' a 250-barrel well in
'Lee Coooly, and a 100-barrel well
near Torrent, Ky.
This makes an increased output of
750 barrels per day in only three wells
here lately, aad there are now 84 pro
ducing wells belonging to the Mc-
Mr. Abram Renick, president of the
McCombs Company, announces that
within the next ten days he expects
also the completion of eight addition
al wells. This is going to make a
tremendous increase in the production
of crude oil by this company.
To accommodate this product the
entire refining plant of the Consoli
dated OH Refining Company of East
St Louis has been purchased and will
be literally removed in its entirety to

rood and within sex raises of the pro
ducing properties of the .McCombs

is now being constructed from the
wells to the location of the refinery
A fleet of 30 steel tank oars has been
purchased to convey the finished prod
uct to the market

Meantime, production from wells al
ready having a consistent record of
production and maoyTrew wells which
are constantly being brought in
throsgh the active drilUec campaign
kraugor&ted by tfce company, assures
an ample supply of oil for the reV
finery from its own wells.
