Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they can
not reach the disease portions of
the ear. There is only one way to
cure deafness and that is by con
stitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of
the mucous lining of the Eusta
chian Tube. When this tube is
inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed, Deaf
ness is the result, and unless the
inflamation can be taken out and
this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroy
ed forever nine cases out of ten
are caused by Catarrh, which is
nothing but an inflamed condition
of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dol
lars for any case of deafness
(caused by catarrh) that cannot be
cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure.
