Latsrrhal Deafness Cannot Be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There U only one way to cure catarrh al deafness, and that Is h/ a constitu tional remedy. Catarrhal Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the EustachianTulie. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when It is entirely closed, Deaf ness Is the result. Unless the inflam mation can be reduced and this tube restored to its normal condition, hear ing will be destoryod forever. Many cases of deafness are caused by catarrh , which is an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. Hall’s Catarrh Medicine acts thru the blood on the mucous surfaces of the system.

The beauties and glories of Southern Maryland and Its glowing future were told of by William L. Marhury yester day at the Saturday luncheon at the City Club, in an address on "The Re lations Between Southern Maryland and Baltimore." Sketching its history, he told i Colonial days of wealth, of the declh and fall of reliable negro labor, of the lean days when fertile land dropped down to almost nothing an acre be cause of the rush to the free lands of the West and Canada, and of other factors which made it the country it was a few years ago. With the exhaustion of public lands and the advancement of the science of agriculture, together with possibility of getting reliable labor, Mr Marhury said, Southern Maryland had begun a new era He said the country was be ing rediscovered, and the discoverers were marveling because such rich land, lying at the doors of two great cities, had escaped proper modern develop ment for so tong a time. ' "Naturally Southern Maryland would feed into Washington instead of Baltimore, ” ne said, “but every farm is directly connected with Baltimore through the State Tobacco Warehouses i here. This Is really the only tie which i binds Southern Maryland trade to this i city. , Var little could come here - otherwise.” in the next 16 years, he said, South ern Maryland would be once more on the map.-The Sun.

In the course of her speech ■ she esked: "Why should we be com pelled to pay for a war Into which we had ’no wish to embark, or for the support of a government whose policy we have no mean* of controlling?" This argument proved ao effective that i the tax on women was reduced to one third of the omount originally pro . posed. 1 Don’t Blame the Machine*. 1 Perhaps one reason for motor speed -1 Ing is that automobiles feel their gas oline just m a horse doe* Us a*t* . -ra C* **—■ -u Oiled Death the fltmnQk the water preveMlngWio •team or (u.
