Catarrhal Deafness Cannot be Cured by
Local Applications, as they can
not reach the diseased portion of tha ear.
There is only one way to cure catarrhal
deafness, and that is by a constitutional
remedy. Catarrhal Deafness is caused by
an inflamed condition of the eustachion
tube. When this tube is inflamed you
have a rumbling sound or imperfect hear
ing and when it is entirely closed deaf
ness is the result' Unless the innamation
can bo reduced and this tube restored to
its normal condition hearing will be de
stroyed forever. Many cases of deafnes
are en used by catarrh which is
condition of the mucous surfaces. Hall's
Catarin Medicine acts thru the blood ou
th mucous surfaces nf the system.
We will give One Hundred Dollars fo
any case of Catarrhal -afness that can
not be cured b»r Halls Catarrh Medicine
