The Mistake Is Made by Union City
Don't mistake the cause of backache.
To be cured one must know the cause.
It is wrong to imagine relief is cure.
Backache is kidney ache.
You must cure the kidneys.
A Union City resident tells you how.
Mrs. E. E. Givens, 111 Fourth street,
Union City, Tenn., says: "I suffered
almost constantly some years ago from
a dull aching across my back and kid
neys. I also had frequent headaches
and a feeling of languor and weakness.
Mr. Givens advised me to try Doan's
Kidney Pills and I did so, with the re
sult that I was cured. I have often en
dorsed Doan's Kidney Pills and will
continue to dof-so."

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 constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed
condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian
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 un
less the inflammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its noi mal condition hearing will
be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are
caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed 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 circu
