Deafness Cannot Be ( tired
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 rem
edies. Deafness Is caused by an in
flamed condition of the mucous lining
of the Euatuohlan Tube. When this
tube is inflamed 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 restor
ed to its normal condition, hearing will
be destroyed forever; nine cases out
of ten aj'e caused by Catarrh, which
is nothing but an inflamed condition
of the mucous surfaces.
We will givo One Hundred Dollars
for any case of Deafness (caused by
catarrh) that cannot be cured by

? HARMONY NEWS? ?
Harmony, Nov. X.?The sad news of
the departure of Mrs. Sleanor Steuert
will be received by many sorrowing
friends. The death angel visited the
home of Mr. J. H. Carlisle last Mon
day evening, Nov. 1th, and carried the
spirit of this good woman into the
great beyond. She was nearly 70 years
old nt the time of her death. Her maid
en name was Aull, born and raised in
the city of Lumens. When quite a
little girl she gave her heart to Cod
and attached herself to the Methodist
Episcopal church and she always lov
ed her church and did what she could
to supply her pastor's needs. She
took a delight In visiting the sick and
ministering to the wants of the needy.
Mrs. Seibert at the age of IS, was
married to Mr. Robert Sichert and they
remained In Lau tens until 1870 when
they bought land here where she has
lived ever since. She leaves nine chil
dren to mourn the loss of a sainted,
good mother: Mrs. Mamie O'Dell, Mrs.
Freddie Carlisle, Mrs. Elolsc Compton.
Mrs. Eleanor Qrnnt, Mrs. Lucia Mob

of New York, and Mrs. Carrie Cogdill,

laid to rest by the side of her husband
who had preceded her to the gravo

An agitation is In progress for Ihc
formation of a new county out of parts
of Laurons, Union and Spnrtnnburg
and i's advocates would have it called
"Mus: rove," because the little battle
of Musgrove Mill In the Revolution
was fought on Enorcc River within
the territory of the proposed county.
Whether or not the county he cre
ated is not a question with which we
are Concerned but. if it be created,
why call it "Musgrove"? Does not
the battlefield commemorate Itself, or,
If it does not, will not the Daughters
of the Revolution erect a stone so
that the spot shall not beforgotten?
There was no prominent colonial
family named ?.Musgrove." Perhaps
the "Mary Musgrove" of Kennedy's
novel once lived, but "Mary Mus
grove." the heroine, is a creation of
the novelist's fancy.
The district to be included in the
proposed county gave birth to one of
the most distinguished of South Car
olinions, certainly the most distin
