BeatnessCannot 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 sourd or
imperfect hearing, and when it i6 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 t*-n 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 (eat ied by catarrh)
that cannot be cured by Hall’s Catarrh
Cure. Send fro circular, free.
