There is only one way to cure dua/ccss, and that is by constitu tional remedies. Deafness is caused by an in damed condition of the muaous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect licar ii.tr. and when it is entirely closed, Deafness is tlic result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will he destroyed foreyer; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh which is nothing but un inflamed condition of the mucoous surfaces. W'e will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused hv catarrh) that cannot be. cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Seud fer circulars; free. F. J. CHENE7 A CO„ Toledo, O.
