Deafness Cannot Be Cured by local applications, a s 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 condi tion of the mucous lining of the Eusta chian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed. Deafness is the result, and unless the in «animation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be. destroyed forever; nine eases out of ten are caused bv Catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condir tion of the mucous surfaces.

Owyhee Brewery Coming to the Front Thé improvements that have been made, together with those in contem plation, render the Owyhee Brewery facilities second to none in this section of the state. Four twenty-five barrel j storage casks are now at Murphy and | will be brought over shortly for install- ; ation in the new cellar across from the ! brewery proper. These huge storage j reservoirs will enable the product to be | properly aged and settled, besides giving j storage facilities. The Jjbeer will be pumped from the factory under the street to the new cellar, which will at once accommodate an extra ! hundred barrels and increase both the capacity of the brewery and the storage facilities that much.

Educntionail Issue of the Nugget We had planned this week to devote considerable space to an account of the progress and doings of the various schools over the county. We believe that the teacher of a country school needs and is surely entitled, if anybody is, to all the encouragement that can be afforded. Underpaid as a class, and their needs and discouragements under estimated, the country schoolteacher is, nevertheless, absolutely the greatest force for good or ill in our western civili zation. Taking the child when all its inherent instincts are in the early formative period, the teacher wields an influence lover the lives of future fathers and mothers that is little realized by the average citizen. As a class the teachers of Owyhee County and throughout the state of Idaho are, we believe, alive both to their opportunities in this respect and to their responsibilities. Insofar as we are able, we desire to do the little we can to encourage these workers in a great field—the greatest the world offers.' For this are taking pains to obtain reports from every district in the county, but the scope of the work has so enlarged on our hands that we find it necessary to defer the issue another week, space will be available and more plete reports at hand. The school issue will pe published February 8. reason we when more ÏR N % ■4 B 2 W com A correspondent asks: "Why is a lawyer?"
