and that is by constitutional remedies.,
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con-1
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus-:
tachian Tube. When this tube is in- ?
flamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing,and when it is entire
ly closed, Deafness is the result, and
unless the inflammation cao be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed
forever; nine cases out of ten are caused j
by Catarrh, which is nothing but an in-1
flamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars
for any case of Deafness (caused by ?
catarrh) that cannot be cureel by Hall's'
Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars, free.

Thinking Lumber is Lumber
anel that it can be bought haphazardly
with pri? the only thought in view. There
are as many good brains engaged today in
the manufacture of SUPERIOR lumber as
in any other field jf industry, with the
result that better stock is being produced
than ever before. There are lots of things
in the proems? of manufacture that will
spoil even good natural timber?they may
show up in the sawing, the dressing or in
the drying, but wherever they occur it
means inferior stock. Our stock is bought
from the latest equipped mills and is es?
pecially selected for particular purposes so
that you e?an rest assured that anything we
sell you will be right?not only in quslity
but also in price. This applies to the lowest
as well as the highest grades of both Lum?
