A very larga percent of these cases
of deafness and roaring noises is due
to the extension of catarrh to the
eustachian tubes and inner ears.
Many of the most remarkable cures
that have been accomplished by the
physicians of the Scott Medical In
stitute have been in the restoration
of hearing lost or dulled from ca
tarrhal extensi n. It is folly to wait
for a trouble like this to get well it
self. It don't get well, but always
gets worse, until frequently the hear

the cause of the trouble and removes
it, is the only iopc.

Dr. Wilson has reported a case
like the foregoing, each week or two,
for the past three years in the tri
eity papers. In the case of Mr.
Peterson. Dr. Wilson v ould state, ho
has lived in 11 K-k Island county for
over :lo years. He is director of a

connected wit i the management of

Wilson has pi biished the statements

they be relied on as telling tke I ruth?
Let the public judge.
Dr. Wilson has noticed a senseless
tirade against him by a young firm
trying to do business in t he t ri-ei ties.
Some three weeks ago Dr. Wilson in
serted in the papers a statement to the
effect that he would notice this baby
firm no more in print. Today he
says the same thing. It is no pleas
ure for us to work for nothing.
