Deafness Cannot Be Cured By local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to curd deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining ol Kustachian Tube. When this tu! inflamed you have a rumbling or imperfect hearing-, and when H i entrely closed. Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can lie taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be de stroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is noth ing but an Inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured by Hull's Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars, free. F. J. CHENEY & CO., Toledo, O.
