The salaries are fixed according to population and"th compensation for officers in Marion Couney is, sheriff, $1000,cleik Co. court, S1C00, Clerk and Master Chancerv Count, 1000; Trustee, $1000Clerk ofJCir ouit Court, 8800' Register of Deeds. $800, and all fees heretoforegiven to them is to be collected and paid into the treasury. We think the change a good one for the officers who have the'knowl edire that they have a fixed reven ue instead of an uncertain one as heretofore, and we should think, will be appreciated by the officers. Furthermore it ought to raise the dignity of the offices and hereafter remove the idea tnat the officers are dependant on the fees of their several offices had a influence in continuence or promotion of cases. We are told the revenues of the County will be benefited by the change, and if so, it wil! be a help. Public expenses must be met and public officers should be reasonably paid for their services, and we look on the change as a step in the right direction. Any public officer should be like Ca)sar'6 wife, above suspicion, and the fixing of salaries is the right and proper thing to do.

Deafness Cannot Be Cured by local applications as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure denfne.-s. and that is by con stitutional remedies.

When thisjjjtube is inflamed you have al rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, Denfniss is the result, and unless tho inflame illation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condN tion, hearing will be destroyed for ever; nine cases out ten are caused by Catarrh, which is noth ing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
