County Judge of Cameron County,
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.

locate. If Brownsville lags behind
now, she will get so badly left in
