cated on an express car between the
Fort and Janesville by Deputy Game
Warden Peter Drafahl, Saturday noon.

a fine white bass and a large pike. Four
dollars and twenty-five cents for the
state was realized in the sale of the con
fiscated game. While he has obtained
no proof, the warden is convinced from
the writing on the boxes that the ship
pers were the same parties who tried to
“run the blockade” with several boxes of
fish last winter.
A Radical Departure.
The most popular illustrated weeklies
and monthlies are produced at enormous
cost. Competition for the work of the
leading authors and illustrators has es
tablished a scale of expense that is al
most prohibitive.
Yet in addition to its many attractive
features The Chicago Sunday Record-
Herald furnishes its readers with a Sun
day Magazine which compares favorably
with the independent periodicals in
every way and has some merits peculiar
to itself. The most famous writers and
illustrators contribute to it. Fine paper
and press work and handy size make it
a pleasure to read this entertaining pub
lication which marks a radical depart
ure in Sunday journalism.

Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus
tachian Tube. When this tube gets in
flamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it is en
tirely closed deafness is the result, and
unless the inflamation can be taken out
and this tube restored to its normal con
dition, hearing will be destroyed forever,
nine cases out of ten are caused by ca
tarrh, which is nothing 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 Hall’s Catarrh
Cure. Send fro circular, free,

Women in Minority in Russia.
St. Petersburg is a good place for
spinsters to migrate to, as the male
population outnumbers the female 124,-

there is quite a commerce in brides
and many men in the provinces are
said to make money by posing as

them at good prices.

Those threatened with consumption or
any kind of wasting disease should look
into the many merits of our Imported
Olive Oil. It has the natural rich, nutty
flavor possessed by only the pure Olive
Oil. It is dangerous and absurd to exper
iment with some of the Olive Oils on the
market, for they may be adulterations—
dangerous to any stomach.
We guarantee our Olive Oil to be posi
tively pure. Asa food and a medicine it is
unapproached for certain kinds of illness,
especially those of a wasting nature, where
pure blood forming and and tissue making
is of the first importance. Our booklet on
Olive Oil is interesting and informing.
