The Fusion Nomination for Congress Will Be Offered to Him. Lincoln, Neb. 3 The political friends of Mr. Bryan have arranged a little surprise for him when he returns in the sbape of the proffer of the fu sion nomination for Congress in this (the First) district, which is now rep resented by Judge Strode (Republi can). Opinion here is divided as to what lie will do. Many believe that he will Uatly refuse, because, while he has avoided any expression of opinion ou the subject, he confidently looks forward to again being the lresiden tial nominee of the Democratic party. Others say that he cannot hope by his lecturing and county fair speechmak- ng, which have been severely cntised, even by warm partisans, to keep him self prominently before tbe public, a necessary corollary to Ins aspirations. They argue that Congress will give him the forum he needs, and his pres ence there will effectually dim the star of his only visible competitor, Repre sentative Bailey, of Texas. DR. J. J. MOTT HERE.

Deafness is caused bv an inflamed condition of the mu cous lining of the Eustachian '1 ube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling soand or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken oat and this tube restored to its normal condi tion, hearing will be destBoyed forever; nine caees oat of ten are caused dv catarrh. which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous suriaces. 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 circulars: free. V. J. CHENKY fc CO.. Toledo, O.
