Deafness Csnnot be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the deceased portion of tbe ear. There le only one way to cure deafness, and that Is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an Inflamed condition of the mu cous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube Is Inflamed you have a rumbllag sound or imperfect hearing, and when It Is entirely closed, Deafness Is the result, and unless tbe Inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to Its normal condi tion, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, wkich Is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cared by Hall’s Catarrb Cure. Send for circulars, free. K, J.
