Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, .as they cannot reach the
diseased portion ol the ear. There is only one
way to cure aeatness.aua max is Dy consiiiunonai
remedies. Deafness is caused by an inHamed
condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian
Tube. When thistube gets inrtamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when
it is entirely closed deafness is the result, and
unless the iutlamation can be taken out aud this
tube restored to its normal condition, hearing
will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten
are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an
inHamed condition oi the mucous surfaces.

Mr. Farley had been selected as one of
the judges, but being acquainted with
two or three of the contestants an
other was secured to act in his stead.
Those having charge of the contests
have adopted tho wise policy of get
ling judges from outside who are ac
quainted with none of the contestants,
and have thereby avoided the hard
feeling which often follows them.
There were six contestants lasteven

with Miss Latla and"" a young man
whose name the writer cannot recall

The majority of persons upon reaching middle age and past
find their blood becomes weak and thin, and diseases that were
easily controlled in earlier life beein to affect the constitution.
Those predisposed to Scrofula, Cancer, Rheumatism, Gout and other hereditary troubles may escape
till then, but as they age the blood, so long tainted and weakened by accumulated waste matters, i no
longer able to properly nourish the body, and it becomes an easy mark for disease. At this critical period
of life the blood must be re-enforced before it can perform its legitimate functions and rid the system of
these poisons, and nothing so surely and effectually doea this as S. S. S.
S. S. S. strengthens and enriches the blood, improves the appetite, and builds up the general constitu
tion. It is not only the best blood purifier, but the nest tonic for old people. It warms the blood, tones up
the nerves, removes all taint from the blood, and prevents the development of disease.
S. S. S. is the only purely vegetable blood medicine known. Not one particle of mercury, potash or
other mineral poison can be found in it, and it may be taken for any length of time without harm.

Attachment Case Dismissed.
From Thursday's Daily.
The attachment case of S. E. Hall &
S n vs. E j Smith was tried in Justice
Archer's court today, and was dis
missed for want of jurisdiction.- The
plaintiffs claimed that Smith pur
chased goods from them to the amount
of $24.50, and removed from the city
without going through the formality
of paying for them. In his reply,
Smith claimed a portion of the goods
belonged to his mother-in-law and the
remainder were exempt from attach
ment No proofs were produced to show
that tho goods did not belong to other
parties. C. S. Polk appeared for the
plaintiff and A. J. Beeson and T. S.

THE NATIVE IN NATAL.
Restrictions Under Wales. ' He Lives
It is a mistake to suppose, as many
do, that the South African native en
joys the same rights and privileges aa
the European, says the Scotsman. To
give him such equal rights, at present
at all events, would be unwise and
probably disastrous. There have been
many laws enacted that are only ap
plicable to the native. For Instance,
there Is a law that they must all he
at their homes by 9 o'clock In the
evening. A bell Is rung at the various
police stations at this hour, and on no
account are they allowed to be abroad
after the bell ceases ringing, unless
furnished with a pass from their em
ployer, on which is stated the extra
time they are permitted to be absent
from their homes. Another law which
places the native at an advantage, or
disadvantage, whichever way it may
be considered, la that he Is not allowed
on any account to be supplied with
intoxicating drink, and any one found
guilty of so supplying Is liable to a
heavy fine. They are permitted, how
ever, to drink utyala, or Kaffir. beer,
a drink made from mealies (Indian
corn) and sour milk. This Is not very
Intoxicating. Polygamy is still recognized-
in Natal of course, among the
native races only. Some people have
expressed wonder to me that an en
lightened country like Great Britain
could allow such a state of affairs to
exist in a country governed by it. The
only answer to these people Is to point
out that "Rome was not built in a
day," and It will necessarily and ob
viously take a long time of civilizing
and Christianizing before the native
can be educated to our way of think
ing in this respect. If we attempted
suddenly to put a etop to polygamy
by radical laws we would doubtless

HAS A BADLY CUT WRIST.
Henry Steodlke Meets With an Accident
While Filling; Bottles.
Henry Stendike, who is employed at
Fred Egenberger's bottling works, met
with a very painful accident Tuesday
afternoon. He was engaged filling
lemon sour bottles, when one of them
exploded under a pressure of fifty
pounds. The bottle was broken in a
thousand pieces, and a large portion of
the glass came in contact with Mr.
Stendike's left hand and wrist. One
of the cords in the wrist was severed
the upper portion of which was drawn
under the flesh nearly to the elbow,
and Dr. Livingston found it necessary
to cut a long gash in the forearm i a
order to secure both ends of the sev
Henry's wrist and hand were other
wise badly cut, but it was indeed fortu
nate that some of the glass did not
strike him in the face.
