Hicks was called to that bright home
above. Deceased had been sick only a

to thfe bereaved family; may they final

Call not back the dear departed,
Anchored safe where storms are o'er;
On the border land we left them,
Soon to meet and part no more.
A precious one from us is gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
Jod, in his wisdom, has recalled
The boon His love had Riven,
And though the body slumbers here,
The soul is safe In heaven.

Deafness Cannot be Cured
Hy local applications, as they cannot reach
4 lie diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to oure deafness, and that is
by .constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an Inflamed condition of the
mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube.
When this tube gets inflamed you have b
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 restored to its nor
mal condition, hearing will be destroyed
forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by
catarrh, which is nothing but an Inflamed
mulltlnn of the mucous surfaces. We will
uive One Hundred Dollars for any case of

SOMETHING TO KNOW.
It may be worth something to know
that the very best medicine for restor
ing the tired out nervous system to s
healthy vigor Is Electric Bitters. This
medicine is purely vegetame, acts oy
giving tone to tho nerve centres in the
stomach, gently stimulates the Liver
and Kidneys, and aids these organs in
throwing off impurities in the blood.
Electric Bitters improves the appetite,
aids digestion, and is pronounced by
those who have tried it as the very best
blood purifier and nerve tonic. Try it.
