While all this is true and while It is a greater affliction to be blind than deaf , yet the loss of hearing would be an inestimable misfortune. Let us con sider for a few moments what we would miss were we deaf. The voices of loved ones would be hushed forever to our ears , the sweet songed birds would no longer sing for us and there would be no music in our lives. Thus we might continue to enumerate in definitely the pleasures of life which would not be ours could we not hear. There are many cases of deafness which could have been avoided had the Bufferer received the proper treatment at the proper time. A person possessed of all five senses Is of more use In this world than one who has only three or four. It. there fore , behooves n sufferer with some disease which is slowly bringing on deafness or blindness to have the best medical skill attainable in order to stay the dread calamity , which may fall before you are aware. With these facts in mind , Dr. Sey mour boa spared neither pains nor ex pense in securing the assistance of an EXPERT EAR SPECIALIST , who will bo with him on his coming visit , and those who are Interested should not fail to tee him.

CON SULTATION FREE , TO FARMERS : This is the time of year when you are disip- pointoti again in the growth of your cattle for the summer , either because your own pasture was too crowded or because you sent them to ft herd where they were abused and neglected , or because you put them' in some one else's pasture , and you find you are losing $5.00 a head in the growth of your larger cattle. Then why not buy a pasture and save this , besides getting an investment that will probably double in value in the next few years. 1 have three different pastures of a section each in central and western Pierce County at $10 per acre and les- , two of them with good houses , small improvements ; the other with a new four wire fence , windmill , supply tank and so forth , with splendid pasturage. Can buy on your own' time at G per cent interest/ A. J.DURLAND. P. S. You will remember that the chances are good pastures like these at $10.00 per acre are very few east of Holt County , and growing less every month. I also have rough land at $10.00 an acre in Knox County that is all good clay soil. DR. SEYMOUR'S WESTERN HOMEi Many readers who are Interested IB Dr. Seymour's wonderful success as an eye specialist will be pleased to know how he successfully conducts such a large business , giving personal atten tion to all his patients , even though their numbers run into thousands. Dr. Seymour lived for many years In Chicago before coming to Nebraska , and even though he has returned to Chicago to live , he has in no wise neglected his Nebraska patients , as he has a permanent office and hospital in Omaha , which is constantly in charge of his assistant , one of the best quali fied eye , ear , nose and throat special ists in the west. The doctor spends much of his time in Omaha and his offices in the New York Life building present a busy scene whenever the doctor makes appointments with his patients at that address. Dr. Seymour can in no wise be classed as a traveling specialist , as his regular trips through the state of Ne b rusk a require only a short period fah and spring , and are over a well estab lished route , paying regular visits to the same patients year after year. In fact , the doctor has not added a new town to his list for over five yeara. These regular trips enable hundreds of people to visit him who could not af ford the expense of going to Omaha for that purpose. He will be accompanied on his coming - j ing trip by an EXPERT EAR , NOBS : AND THROAT SPECIALIST , who will have direct charge of all medical treat ments which are supplied from the Omaha office. The doctor especially requests that those wishing to visit him during his coming trip will drop him a card , room. 307 , N. Y. Life Bldg. , Omaha , as his if time will be very fully occupied , and by so doing patients can receive speca ! appointments. CONSULTATION AB SOLUTELY FREE. REMEMBER THE DATE. - DR.
