There is only one way to cure catarrhal deafness and that is by a constitutional remedy. Catarrhal Deafness is caused bv an inflamed condition of the mu cous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imper fect bearing, and when it is entire ly closed deafness is the result. Unless the inflamation can be re duced and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever. Many cases of deafness are caused by catarrh, which is an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. Hall's Ca tarrh Medicine acts thru the blood on the mucous surfaces of the system. We will give One Hundred Dol lars for any case of Catarrhal Deafness that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Medicine. Circu lars free. All druggists, 75c. F.J.CHENEY & CO. Toledo, O.
