Deafness Cannot bo Cured
By local applications, as they cannot
mach tbe diseased portion of the ear.
Tnero Is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by the constitutional reme?
dies. Deafness is caused by an in?
flamed condition of the mucous lining of
tho Eustachlan Tube. When this tube
ie inflamed you have a rumbling Bound
or imperfect hearing, and when it is en?
tirely closed, deafness is tho result, and
unless tho inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, boaring will be destroyed for?
ever; nine cases out of ten are caused by
catarrh, which is nothing but an in?

Tho most northorly lighthouse on the
coast of this continent stuuds on Bello
islo, at tho head of tho straits of that
name, a littlo northeast of Newfound?
land. By what freak of taste it was
called Bello islo I cannot say, for evou
the old navigators had such a horror of
it. that on their charts they marked it
with tho figuro of a dotuou.
Tho morning tho littlo mail steamer
on which I cruised "down ou tlio Lab?
rador, "as tho Newfoundlanders say,
plunged and rolled past it through tho
surge tho ragged mass of rock crouch- i
ed thero as if ready to seizo its prey of
Bhips aud human lives. Tho surf, un?
heard at our distance, flashed nronnd
its baso like It long row of glistening
teeth. A huge iceberg had drifted in
nnd lay stranded at ono end of tho is?
land; far up on the rocks was tho light?
house; ou a shelf below stood a littlo
hut, with provisions, for shipwrecked
sailors; tho gray morning mists made
those look heavy and sodden, and alto?
gether this glimpso of Bello islo was
tho most dosolato scono I had over bo
held. Over our bow tho barren coast of
Labrador was faintly outlined, and as tho
last lighthouse on tho continont drop
pod astern I felt that wo were indeed
drawing away from civilization, and
this fooling was strengthened whou, as
wo tumod our prow northward, we
sighted tho vanguard of tho seemingly
ondloss procession of hugo icebergs drift?
ing slowly down in single filo from the
mysterious regions of tho north.
Wo had met with single bergs along
tho Newfoundland coast, but off Labra?
dor they becanio a constant and unspeak?
ably grand feature in tho seaward
view. I doubt if they can bo seen any
wlioro olso except in arctic and antarctio
waters in such numbers, variety and
grandeur. Tho branch of tho gulf stream
which pushes its way into tho Arctio
ocean has sufficient forco lef t when it is
reflected by tho frozen northern bound?
ary of that sea to send an icy current
down along tho Labrador coast. Prac?
tically all tho bergs that break looso
from tho ico sheathed shores of Green?
land aro borno southward by this cur?
rent. Ono morning, when I went upon
deck, I counted no less than 135 hugo
ones. Some of these wero great solid
blocks of ico; othors were arched with
numerous Gothic passageways; some
reached with Bpireliko grace high up
into tho air. All reflected with pris?
matic glory the rays of tho nun.?Gustav

It wns remarked by a writer long ago
that "thero is no revengo so bard and
bitter as that of an old man," and it is
one of tho astonishing perversities of
many natures that tho longer they live
tho liardor thoy hug their possessions.
Tho most disinterested affection is pass?
ed over, the most faithful and most val
uablo services aro slightly and grudg?
ingly rewarded. This mental and moral
diseaso notably afflicts tho richest. Tho
Marquis d'Aligro was a singular oxam
ple. His will was concocted with a spo
oial dosiro to disappoint and insult his
relatives, friends nnd servants. To tho
iirst it said: "As for you, my relatives
who havo beon so long spelling upon
this fortune on which 'I had concentrat?
ed all my affections,1 you aro not going
to touch a penny of it, and not ono of
you will bo ablo to boast that you havo
squandered tho millions which tho old
Marquis d'Aligro had taken so many
years to hoard up."
Sir Robert Bovil, ono of James I's
officials, did not oven sparo his wife.
"I give unto my wifotonno shillings in
respect she took her sonnes part ngainst

afterwards. Thoso will not bo forgot?
ten." And the Earl of Stafford, who
married tho daughter of tho Duo do
Grammont, wroto: "To tho worst of

framed by buttons decorates tho front of

"Ono of onr ponies had to bo shod,
and another time wo pnt shoes on the
bull which carried tho baggago. Tho
pony was first thrown to tho ground, and
his four legs were tied together so that
ho couldn't possibly kick.
"Then tho blacksmith pounded hoop

hammer. It was the same with tho bull,
though ono man hnd to sit on his head

from tho mines in tho northern part of
