the shot that killed Thorton Nance
at Piedmont church 19 years ago. At
the time of his first trial he was sen

lows upon a second trial. Six other
negroes were convicted at the same
time. They were all given varying
terms in the penitentiary.
After bis escape from the State

There Is only one way to cure deaf
ness and that is by constitutional rem
edies. Deafness is caused by an in
'flnmed condition of the mucous lining
of the Knstachian Tube. When this
tube is hummed 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 rest I'

will be destroyed forever; nine cases
out of ten are caused by Catarrh,
which is nothing but an Inflamed con
