Deafness Cannot Be Cured by local applications, as they can not reach the diseased portion of ! the ear. There is only one way to I 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 rumblings 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 cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
