Spurgeon Rebuked. Mr. Spur^eon was once traveling in a railway carriage, the only other occupant of which was a maiden v lady of somewhat severe aspect, and to pass the time he entered into conversation with her on various topics. The train happened to pass r Kelvedon, in Essex, where Spur geon first saw the light, and the preacher, who dearly loved a joke, pointed from the window and re marked: "A very groat man wa9 born therb ? Mr. - Spurgeon, the eminent preacher." The lady looked at him with a stony stare for some time and then replied : "If St. Paul had been passing his birthplace he would have said, 'A very great sinner was born there/ Mr. Spurgeon/' It was the first intimation which the preacher had that he had been recognized by his traveling com panion. ?? ?mi ??iiw mmmmumm mil i " "?? n i mammmwi yB 9 Cherry Pectoral.

Deafness Cannot Be Cured by local applications, as they can not reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness and that is by con stitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the eusta chian tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed deafness is the result, and unless the in flammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroy ed forever; nine eases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. We will crive one hundred dol lars for any case of deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured by Ilall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars, free. F. J. CHENEY & CO., | Toledo, 0.
