“The Little Flag on
Our House” D William C. Demure u. in I eslie’s Weekly The little flag on our house Is floating ail the day Beside the great big Stars and Stripes; You can almost hear it say To all the folks in our street, As the breezes make it dance: “Look up and see my own blue star— We’ve got a boy in France!” The little flag on our house, 1 It floats sometimes at night, And you can see it ’way up there When the street lamp shines just right, | And sometimes, ’long toward morn ing, When the cop comes by, perchance It signab with its one blue star; “We’ve got a boy in France!” I The little flag on our house Will wave, and wave, and wave Until our boy comes home again, Or finds in France his grave. Nay—tho’ its blue star turns to gold, Because of War’s grim chance, It still shall wave to say: “Thank God, We’ve got a boy in France!” Save to Buy Iand Buy to Keep God Bless j" That Boy! TODAY he is more than your boy or my boy! Today he fights for the purity of all woman hood, the safety of all children, for tenderness to all the aged. Today he avenges the outraged women, the wantonly crippled children, the cruelly treated old left by the dastardly Hun. Today he fights to restore and maintain peace in all the world so wickedly disturbed by the grue some German. He fights to reconstitute, as self-governing nations, those peoples ruthlessly destroyed by the merciless military masters of Hundom. _ _ _ ! But We Must Do Our rart!

Catarrhai Deafness Cannot Be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure catarrhal deafness, and that is by a constitutional remedy. Catarriial Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the.Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entire ly closed, Deafness is the result. Unless the inflammation can be reduced and this | tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever. Many cases of deafness are caused by catarrh, which is an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. Hall’s Catarrh Medi cine acts through the Dlood on the mucous surfaces of the system. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Catarrhal Deafness that can not be cured by Hall’s Catarrh Medicine. Circulars free. Ali druggists, 75c. F. J. CHENEY & CO., Toledo, O.
