Gentlemen : — Being entirely cured cf deafness, thanks to your treatment, I wttl now give you • full history of my case, to be used at your discretion. About five years ago my right ear began to sing, and this kept on getting worse, until I lost my hearing in this ear entirely. I underwent a treatment for catarrh, for three months, without any success, consulted a num ber of physicians, among others, the most eminent ear specialist of this city, who told me that only an operation could help me, and even that only temporarily, that the head noises would then cease, but the hearing in the affected ear would be lost forever. I then saw your advertisement accidentally in a New York paper, and ordered your treat ment. After I had used it only a few days according to your directions, the noisesceased, and to-day. after five weeks, my hearing in the diseased ear has been entirely restored.

The House Merchant Marine Com mittee are continuing the considera tion of the Ship Subsidy Bill. They have had several hearings upon it and there are more to follow. Andrew Feruseth, of the international Seamens Union of America, and Charles Camp bell, of the Marine Industrial League of New York, were before the last meeting. They are in favor of the gen eral purpose of the bill but were dis satisfied with some of its details. Re quests for future bearings against the bill have been died by the joint com mittee of the American Anti-Trust League and local Knights of Labor. Other interests, both for and against the bill, are expected to be beard. The trend of Congressional sentiment is vow in opposition. Recent develop ments in the shipping world have done much more to arouse the opponents of the bill than to encourage its friends. The Democrats are united against it. Republican opposition is widespread. The following expressions from well known Republican members of the House evidence the character and ex tent of this opposition: Mr. Crumpacker of Indiana: "The tendency toward consolidation on the part of the great International Steam ship Lines will defeat the object of the pending Ship Subsidy Bill and ought to defeat the bill itself. The country will not consent to the payment of large subsidies to steamship companies that have become part of ocean trans portation combinations organized for the purpose of keeping up ocean freight rates." * K. Perkins of New York: "I do not the bill will be brought up at the present session, nor do I believe it could pass now. The name of 'sub-1 sidy' is unpopular and there is evident, i ly much opposition to the pending bill. No one could object to the bill if its pro posed object would be insured by its, enactment. If bills were considered ; »by their titles, every bill would good bill, but the question is whether this sort of legislation would result in the development of American ; ■merce. There is no doubt that it d benefit some large interests. If Congress could be convinced that the II claimed would be brought about, 1 would be passsd. There are, er, many members who view igislation with a great deal of it." Barney of Wisconsin: "lam op to the pending Subsidy Bill, be as it is framed, it is in the iu -3l large shipowners aud ship 's and not iv the interest of • ones. While I favor in a gen ly the promotion of foreign com- I am not in favor of protect ge corporations by giving them antage over smaller ones." Henry C. Smith of Michigan: lot believe we ought to pay a y for carrying wind, and that i the pending bill proposes to ' he subsidy, as proposed, applies ! oh to vessels when empty ac hey are carrying a full load." j Curtis of Kansas: "I was op ;o the bill as presented to the ngress. I have not had time to lly examine the bill as it now but I understand that the ob is to the old bill have not been y removed in the new. If this appear to be true when the bill up, 1 shall oppose it and in so [ think I shall represent the ent of Kansas." I Hepburn of Iowa: "I am willing i for a Subsidy bill under cer mditions but 1 am not willing i extravagant appropriations for purpose. I want the subsidy,' 3 to vessels adapted to cargoes than passengers. Ido not look he pending Senate bill as accom ,g what I would want in a Sub ill. Woods of California: "1 am op to the pending Ship Subsidy Bill, -because it does not subsidize in ble proportions the proper kind of ships The slow ships are in need of a subsidy—not the grejhounds of the sua. Tbe latter can pay good di vidends without any subsidy. Second —I am opposed to subsidizing any ships manned substantially by foreign sailors. This bill gives subsidy to a number of ships that employ Chinese labor." Mr. Ilaugeu of Iowa: "I have not time to discuss tbe Subsidy bill in de tvil but I am free to say that I am op posed to it as it is now constituted, op posed to it as it is likely to come up at taia session if it should come up at all, I and I am inclined, at this time, to op-1 pose it in any shape."

WOMEN BECOMING TALLER. Outdoor Exercise Responsible for Their Increased Stature. "Do you see that giantess?" said a physician to a Chicago Tribune man, as he called attention to an unusually tall woman in State street. She was walking across the street with the stride of a soldier. Her head was erect, her cheeks glowed with the evidences of pure, fresh, buoyant health, and her height was six feet at "Now," said the physician, "look at this one, and that, and these two, and another just stooping to get into that ridiculous little brougham. They are all tall and athletic-looking and active. Look about you among this throng of handsomely dressed shoppers. Do you Rin id-gets among them V" were, indeed, a few short, nn women. There was, however, age predominance of tall, straight-stepping, broad-shouldered women, and the great authority who had at first called attention to them made a. startling prophecy regarding future femininity. "Fifty years from now," he stated, "the women of the leisured classes — that is, those women whose occupations do not keep them constantly within doors—will be six-footers. You see the evidence before you. Year after year women have been growing taller and stronger, save those who work in offices and factories. They are exempt from my prophecy." "What about them f was asked. "Ah, that is difficult to say," replied the doctor, "but I do not think I am far off in stating that indoor women will become shorter and less robust. I have given much study to this subject during tbe last ten years. I have made minute investigation and careful tabulation. "I have seen the golf playing, hock ey driving, bicycle-riding girl sprout upward inch by inch year by year, and, on the other hand, I have noted that the lack of air and exercise has made a correspondingly deteriorating effect upon those poor things who are per force obliged to work indoors. "Open windows would do much for them. In fact, I think it would be best if all employers were made to provide fresh air, either by way of windows or air tubes. Posterity demands fresh air. Here in the street is your proof, for all of these strong, tall women are air-grown. "I have often noted," said the prop hetic medical expert, "that foreigners say the tall American woman is vapid, brainless, lifeless, all muscle and no mind. Now lam prepared to disprove that. Where in all the world are wo men more intelligent? In Germany ? Perhaps in the lore of the cookery book. In France V "Ees, if you confine the question to the art of the needle. "In England ? Well, they are rais ing their own crop of giantesses by th e same simple air process that we have I adopted. "You have only to go to one of our problem plays to note that the complex depths of meaning and the nimbleness of the epigram are not lost on our young giantesses; and that implies brains."

Advice to a Farmer Who la Desirona of Taking- Up Beekeeping; n« a A reader wants to know what it takes to commence with, and about how many colonies one person can at tend to, giving the business about half of his time. How to begin beekeeping, depends to some extent upon the amount of knowledge one may have of the busi ness before he begins. If he is strictly an amateur, and has no knowledge of scientific beekeeping, he should study the subject some before going Into it. One may begin successfully with one or two colonies, and with the assist ance of books on the late management of bees, soon learn the entire business, and this would be a proper way to start. There are plenty of good works on bee culture that give all the details in their management; besides a number of monthly and weekly bee Journals that will keep one posted on the latest discoveries and improvemnts. With a thorough study of some good text book, and a tew colonies of bees to practice on, to prove to yourself the truth of what you read, you can soon master all there is to it. On the other hand, if one has a knowledge of the business to some ex tent, he may start in with more bees, but unless he Is an expert, it is not safe to go in too deep. Failure would be sure to follow one who would buy out some large apiary, and start it without experienced help, if he had but little knowledge of the business him self. The matter of starting with bees with the Intention of going into it ex tensively, depends somewhat upon yourlocalityas a good honeyproducer or whether or not many bees are there kept. Localities may be overstocked, so that the crop of honey cannot reach a profitable basis. But this is rather the exception in most localities. One can easily attend to 100 colonies and give them half his time. —A. H. Duff, in Rural Voice. CLOVER FOR POULTRY. For Egg Producing at All Seasons of the Year This Crop Certainly Has No Equal. value of clover for egg producing time and again. Clover has just the mate rial in it to form egg shell, and hence it becomes an essential part of every ration fed to the chickens. It may not be generally understood that there are nearly 30 pounds of lime contained in each thousand pounds of clover. The chickens fed daily with clover will consequently prove better egg layers than those denied it. The clover hay should be given to chickens in winter in quantities sufficient to satisfy them, and to make them eat more it is desir able sometimes to prepare it in various ways. Cook and chop it up and mix it with meal or other articles. This will sometimes induce the hens to consume a great amount of clover each day. Cut up into short lengths and mixed with warm mash, and then fed only as fast as the chickens will clean it up each day, is probably the most economical way to feed the clover. Some cut the second crop of clover and place it in the poultry yard for the chickens to eat and scratch over at pleasure. This of itself is all right, but it is rather waste ful. More than half the clover will be lost, and the chickens do not actually eat much more than the leaves. The stalks contain most of the lime, and these should be prepared so the chick ens will consume them. Of all foods that can be raised on a farm for poul try, clover is n»?t only the best, but probably the cheapest, and a field of it is ns essential to success as a pasture field is necessary to the success ot dairying.—Annie C. Webster, in Massa- | ■ A Unique Efrsr Producer. ething more likely to meet a taste than "red albumen" is de d in a Chicago letter. What was a scourge in Nebraska has now become of value in a commercial way. A ma chine was invented to kill grasshop pers called the "hopperdozer." It does the work all right, but heretofore the grasshoppers have been wasted. Now the killed grasshoppers are left In! wind rows in the field, where they are dried after an exposure to the sun and reduced to powder, after which they are pressed and converted into solid bricks. These brlck6 are shipped to poultry raisers, who find it good food for hens, as it Is great encourager of egg production. It is not necessary to grind these bricks, but merely to break them into pieces and soften with wa ter. The hens like them exceedingly well and thrive on the diet. Holds Up a Congressman.
