La Grippe is epidemic catarrh. -It spares

Have you the grip? Or, rather, has the
grip got you? Grip is well named. The
original French term, la grippe, has been
shortened by the busy American to read
"grip." Without intending to do so a new
word has been coined that exactly describes
the case. As if some hideous giant with
awful Grip had clutched us in its fatal clasp.
Men, women, children, whole town3 and
cities are caught in the baneful grip of a
Fe-tO'iia for Grip.
Mrs. Dr. C. D. Powell, President of Ep

"I have used several remedies in cases of

not help me I bought a bottle of Peruna."

"Following a severe attack of la grippe I

"One of my customers who was greatly
helped by Peruna advised me to try it, and
I procured a bottle the same day. Now my

Deafness Cannot Be Cared
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 lining of the Eustachian Tube. When
this tube gets 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
and this tube restored to its normal con
dition, hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases of of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condition
of the mucous surfaces.

NOT SENDING HER BEST MAN.
PrlrsVto John Allen's Readr Explana
tion off His Receat
At a gathering of promicmt men in Wash
ington one night recently the conversation
turned to the up and downs of politics.
In the party were Prixate John Allen, of
Mississippi, and Senator Shoup, of Idaho,
both of whom had just concluded unsuc
cessful senatorial canTasses of their re
"What' the matter down in Mississippi
and out in Idaho?" some one asked Repre
sentative Allen, "that two such brilliant
men as you and Shoup do not seem to be
wanted in, the senate?
"Well, now," drawled the Missisrippian
of famous wit, "Idaho is a long way off,
and I can't tell you much about why Shoup
got left but I can tell you about Missis
sippi; I know all about it." Then, in a
confidential whisper and with an air of im
parting some startling secret, he added:
Mississippi isn't sending her best men to
the senate this year."

"Having traveled for so many years," he
said to the- drummer who boasted of having
been on the road for 18 years, "I tjuppoee
you have come to think some one car in a
train is the safest?"
"The idea has never occurred to me," was
the reply, says the Chicago Dail v News.
"That s curious. I thought all men who
traveled had a preference for a certain car.
I know a Chicago man who always takes
the first sleeper, and a Philadelphian who
wants a right-hand seat in the middle car,
or else he won't take that train."
"I have never heard of such instances be
fore." "But you must realize that there is dan
ger?" persisted the questioner.
"Oh, yes; but I never think of it. I get
a seat opposite a shaving-looking woman, if
possible, do my best to render myself agree
able, and leave the accident business to
Providence and the train dispatcher. My
line rather protects me, anyhow."
"And what line of goods are you travel
ing for, may I ask?"
"Cardboard for Bible covers and pre
pared food for infants. I shall wait until
I go into groceries or hardware before look
ing for the safest car on the train."

"Keg your pardon," gasped the guest. "I
