Deafness Cannot Be Cured,
hy local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only way to cure deafness,
..and that is caused by an inflamed
.condition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube is
inflamed you have a rumbling sound
<or imperfect hearing, and when it is
entirely closed, Deafness is the result,
and unless the inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to its*
normal condition, hearing will be de?
stroyed for ever; nine cases out of ten
are caused by Catarrh, which is noth?
ing but an inflamed condition of the
mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars

catarrh) that cannot be cured by

Primos McFadden Hobbed of Cotton
Money By Three Negroes.
From the Daily Item Dec. 20.
Primus McFadden, an aged and
seemingly respectable colored men.
was robbed of $44 in the rear of
O'Donnell & Co.'s* store today. He
had just sold a bale of cotton and
when he placed the money that he
had received from the sale in the in?
side pocket of his coat, he noticed
that he was being watched by a maa
but thought nothing unusual of it.
He stepped back in the lot and ibis
negro, together with two others, fol?
lowed him, The^one who had seen
the money safely placed away, snea te?
ed up behind the old negro, grebbed
him, unbuttoned his coat, and held
him firmly while another of the party
secured the $44 and ran with it.
The old negro was very much dis?
tressed on account of his loss and re?
ported the affair tb the police officers
of the city. One of the three was
captured at 2 o'clock and placed in
the guard house; but no money was
found on his person when the search
was made.
This case will be prosecuted vig
orousr$/and all connected wfth.it will

Under Supreme Court Decision Al?
liance Funds Will Be Distributed.
Columbia, December 21-The funds
of the now defunct Farmers' Alliance
exchange will. now probably be dis?
tributed among the stockholders, ac?
cording to the decision of the supreme
court. In this opinion the decision
of the lower court was upheld. Some
years ago the business agent for the
exchange announced that the moneys
could not .be distributed as was desir?
ed by the stockholders. An injunc?
tion was obtained and a receiver ap?
pointed. The funds ^were then bank?
ed in this city, where they have been
ever since. A meeting of the stock?
holders will soon be called.
