mise Wage Question.
Superior, Wis., April i .—The strike
of the painters and decorators has
b"en settled and Che men returned to
work after having been out for more
than a week. They have been receiv
ing 3^ 1-3 cents per hour for nine
hours' work, making $8 per day. They
demanded the same price of $3 per
day for eight hours" work. Two shops,
the proprietors of which were mem
berg of the union, signed this scale,
hut all the rest of the Master Paint
era' association refused to sign and
much spring work has been put back.
Thei" was no sign of giving in on
either side, so finally a suggestion was
made for 3! cents per hour for nine
hours' work until July 1 and 35 cents
l-r hour for eight hours' work after
that time and this was agreed to.

Deafness Cannot be Oared
by local applications as they cannot
reach the diseased portions of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition 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 en
tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and
unless the inflamation can be taken out
and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed for
over nine cases out of ten are caused
by Catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous services.
We will yive One Hundred Dollars
reward for any case of Deafnesstcaused
by catarrhlthat cannot be cured by
Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars,
