St. Charles, Mo., in 1861. and received
bis education at the schools in that
county and the Blackburn universty

the age of 18
years, when he
was made sta
agent and as

resigned to enter broader fields.
He went to breaking on the

St. Louis aud Chamouis, Mo.
After three years in that capacity he
was promoted to the yardmastcrship
at Pleasant Hill, Mo. "After one year
in that position he resigned and re
turned to St. louis, where he was
given a run on the same road as
freight conductor between the latter
city antl Chamouis. Brighter pros-
ficcts seemed to gleam in the I'nion
'acitic. so he' entered the employ of
that company asi yard master at
Wamego, Kan. After one 3'ear he
was promoted to conductor between
Wamego and Brooklyn, Kan , on the
Denver division. He remained there
until the great bank failures that
swept over the west in 18'J-l and wor
ried many railroaders, when he gave
up his position and came to Rock Isl

Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deaf
ness, and that is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous
lining of the eustachian tube. When
this tube gets inllamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hearing.
aud when it is entirely closed deafness
is the result, and unless the liiuam
mation can be taken out and this tube
restored to its normal condition, hear-
in"; will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh
which is nothing but an inllamed con
dition of the mucous surfaces.
We will jrive one hundred dollars

catarrh) that cannot bo cured by
