H A physician, after an examination
of his Body, stated that he had suf
fered nothing more thrn a bruise over
the ribs. He was atlje to leave the
hospital this morning.
- Bngels' home is at Second street

is that he was returning home with a
basket of groceries when iie was at
tacked. It was very dark on the
thoroughfare he was following, and
when nearing ihe tool company plant,
he said, a man whose face he did not
recognize, raised a big club and struck
him violently in the side, stunning
and felling him to the ground. His
assailant made no attempt to rob him
or to take the basket or its contents,
but hurried, away as soon as he had
delivered the blow.
Too Weak to Give Outery. ,

that some one would come along who
would extend him assistance.
The case has been reported to the
police, but they have not the slightest
clew upon which to work.

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-ne.-.s
aiid that is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous lin
ing of the Eustachian tube. When
this tube is inflamed you have a runi
blnig sound or imperfect hearing and
when it is entirely closed, deafness is
the result and unless the inflamma
tion can be taken out and this tub'
restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused Ly
catarrh, which is nothing but an In
flamed condition of the mucous surface.
We will give $1"0 for any case of
deafness (caused by catarrh) that
cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
