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 constitution al remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous linine of the Eustachion 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 inflammation can be taken out and this .tube- restored to its noraaal condition, hear ing will be destroyed forever; nine cases okt of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but au inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. We will srive One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be'l cured by Hall s Catarrh Cure. Send for circu lars free. E. F. CHENEY & Co., Toledo. O.

Official statistics for last year's accidents in the Alps are now aboutcomplete, and they show that seventy-five persons lost their lives in the French, Swiss, Italian and Austrian mountains. The Ger mans take the lead in the mortality record, the English come second and the Italians third. The great est case of mishap, fatal and other wise, was, as usual, the insane practice of undertaking dangerous ascents without a guide. The dead liest regions are the Bernese Obre land, the Grisons, the Pennine Chain and Monts Blanc and liosa. Fourteen persons were killed picking wild flowers in risky pla ces, beveral ot these were women, and not young women either in six cases.

With threats that he would kill his entire family Polk appeared in the room with a shotgun in his hands. He pointed the weapon at his daughter and fired, the shot striking her in the breast and arm inflicting painful but not fatal wounds. He then fired at Mrs. ' Polk, the shot striking her in the side. Leaving the room for a mo ment Polk again returned with a 44 revolver and fired a ball crash ing through Mrs. Polk's heart. He then left the house, carrying his shotgun and revolver with him. Neighbors hurried to the home and began searching the premises for Polk. A short time later Dr. W. F. Gray and John Salmon, two members of the searching party, found Polk's body lying in the orchard. His revolver was plutched tightly in his right hand and the shotgun was lying by his side. An examination disclosed the fact that he had fired two balls from th6 re volver into his body. One passed through the stomach, the other ploughed its way through his heart. His shirt was powder burned by the weapon with which he ended his life.
