DEAFNESS CANNfcOT BE eUP.ED
by local applications, as thev 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
Eustachian Tube. When this tube is
inflame?, you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when St is en?
tirely closed, Deafness is the -result,
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
bat an inflamed condition 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 Cure. Send for circulars, free.

tbe normal westerly air of shivers
brushed our frosty faces. Tbe surpris?

nursed to Its limit, and under It a long
march was made over average Ice
wltb the usual result of overbearing
fatigue. Too tired and sleepy to wait
for a enp of tea, melted snows were

pounded with the ax to eaae tbe task
of the jaws. The eyes closed before

slept very little. Sly goal was reach?

fulfilled. How could I sleep away

work shoes, shoes that would give good
honest wear, shoes that would be solid
sole leather from strop to tip. I suc?
ceeded in securing from two of the
largest manufacturers of shoes m the
North just such a shoe. These shoes
s re now coming in; we have so far re?
ceived about 21 different styles. Every
shoe has. and I will guarantee wiem u>
have, or give you a new pair in ex?
change for those proving otherwise,
solid sole leather counters, one piece of
solid sole leather innersoles, the out
soles of the very best of oak tann?sd
?ole leather, and the shoes are treated
throughout with viscol making them as
near waterproof as a leather shoe can
be made. I believe honestly tais is the
best line of work shoes that hss ever
entered the "Old 'Bur?/." We would
be pleased to show this line to any one
who may be in search of or who antici?
p?tes purchashing such a shoe. Stop in
