Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications as they cannot reach the
diseased portion of the ear There is only one
way to cine deafness and that is by constitu
tional lemedies Deafness is caused by an in
flamed condition of the mucous lining of the
EusUcman Tube When this tube is inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hear
ing, and v.henitis entirely closed, deafness is
the result and unless the inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to its normal
condition hearing will be destroyed forever,
nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an anflamed condition of
the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for any
case of deafness (caused by catarrh) that can
not be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for
