by local applications, as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There is only
one way to cure deafness, and that is bj con

an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of

inflamed 3011 have a rumbling sound or im
perfect hearing, and when it is entirely clos

flammation 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 but
an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.

A Dandelion Care.
The Tribune is in receipt of a
circular containing an article by
the botanist of the North Dakota
Experiment Station in which is
given an effective means of getting
rid of the dandelion on the lawns,
parks, roadsides and meadows.
The remedy consists in spraying
with a solution of iron sulphate,
which kills the dandelion and other
weeds, but not the grass. Success
ful application requires a com

the solution and might injure the
grass. It is suggested that cities
and towns own a spraying outfit for
the use of its citizens and thus as
