Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot reach the dis
eased portion of the ear. There is only one way to
cure deafness and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the
mucous lining of the Eustachian tube. When this
tnl»e is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or im
perfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, deaf
ness is the result and unless the inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to its normal condi
tion, hearing will be destroyed forever nine cases
out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing
but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for any case of
deamess (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured
by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars free.

More Coal at Cainsville.

a weary wait the drillers reached the
required depth last Monday evening,

lind, a verification of the coal vein re
vealed by the other test boles in the
In the hole just completed, a fine vein
of coal about 55 inches was found
at about 480 feet, covered with a roof
of shale about 4 or 5 feet thick. The
drillers have had all sorts of bad luck
in drilling this hole, and are still in
trouble as they are unable to get the
core barrel out. The boys are still try
ing to get it out and we hope they will
The showing of this hole is a very
gratifying piece of news as it clears
away all doubts as to the extent of the
coal field and the enormous size of the
vein. When Mr. Strause made the an
nouncement while drilling the oil well
that he had struck a vein of coal 5 feet
thick but few believed it as it sounded
too good to be true, and the people
were not fully satisfied until the core
from the hole Mr. West drilled a few
feet from the oil well proved that Mr.
Strause was practically correct. Six
core holes have been drilled—one half a
mile east and a little south of the oil
well, three west and one southwest of
the oil well—and all of these test holes
have told practically the same story.
This simply means great things for
Cainsville. Sooner or later it means a
city of 3000 to 5000 with factories and
other industries attracted by our cheap
fuel, more railroads, and business enter

certainly "look* good" to us.—Cains

Nine times in ten stomach derange
ments are responsible for sallow com
plexion, dull eyes and thin body.
It is the stomach that supplies
nourishing blood 'to the rausoles, the
nerves, and skin. If the stomach is
healthy, plenty of nutritions matter will
be absorbed by the blood. If it is not
healthy, the food will ferment, and un
digested, will pass along through the
bowels, furnishing so little nutritions
matter that the blood becomes impover
ished, and the glow of health vanishes.
If you suffer from nervousness, sick
headache, belching of gas, sour taste in
the mouth, heaviness after eating, or
any qther miserable stomach disturb
ance, you need Mi-o-na, and the sooner
you get it the quicker you will be
healthier and happier.

condition almost immediately. It will
