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 is inflam ed you have a rumbling sound or imper fect hearing, and ivhen it is entirely clos ed, Deafness is the resnlt, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condi tion 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 Onre. Send for circulars jree. F. J.CHENEY & Co., Toledo, O.

Prof. Posner, a well known surgeon, in an article in the Gartenlaube declares that surgery is making such progress that he looks forward to the time when surgeons will be able to attach an .artificial leg to the body. He goes further and says that in the tuture surgeons will find no difficulty in attaching a beheaded head to the trunk, in case the operation is carried out expeditiously. Brownsville should beware Jest the golden opportunity now within her grasp escape never to return again. The thousands of horaeseekers coming to the lower Rio Grande have the money to buy Iiomes or small farms, and will iielp to develop the country and build up towns wherever they locate. If Brownsville lags behind now, she will get so badly left in -the race of progress that she may -never be able to catch up again. It as not probable that lands in this region will continue to bring such good prices in the future as at j resent. I net TPm?
