Deafness Cannot Do Cured
By local applications, os they cannot
reach tho dlsoased portion of tho car.
There is only one way to cure deafness
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an Inllamod con
dition of tho mucous lining of Eusta
chian Tube. When this tube gets in
tlanied you havo a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it Is en
tirely closed Deafness is the result,
and unless the Inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to its
normal condition, hearing will bo de
stroyed forever: nlno eases out of ten
aro caused by catarrh, which is nothing
but an inllamod condition of the mu
cous surf neos.
We will give One Hundred Dollars
for any case of Deafness (caused by ca
tarrh) that cannot bo cured by Hall's
Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars,
