by local applications, as they can not reach
tho diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to cure Deafness, and that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an innamed condition of the mu
cous lining of tho Eustachian Tube. When
this tube pets inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or iniperfoct hearing, and when it is
entirely closed Deafness Is the result, and
unless tho in Humiliation can bo taken out
and this tube restored to its normal condi
tion, hearing will bo destroyed 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 Dollars for any
case of Deafness (caused by Catarrh) that

From the Herald of Faith, St. Louis, Mis

Referring to Shalleuberger's Antidote for
Malaria, tho business manager of tho Her
ald of Faith would say, that ho gave this
medicine a personal trial, and was speedily
cured of an unpleasant Intermittent Fever.
Ho then recommended it to F. J. Ticfen

cer Meideuger, at tho Union Depot, both of
whom were cured by it of chills aud fever
of several years' standing. Recently his
wife, after a fever of several days' duration,
took a singlo dose and was perfectly cured.
In view of these remarkable cures, and re
membering how much money is spent for

Talking of patent medicines
you know the old prejudice.
And the doctors some of
them are between you and us.
They would like you to think
that what's cured thousands
won't cure you. You'd be
lieve in patent medicines if
they didn't profess to cure
everything ,and so, between
the experiments of doctors,
and the experiments of patent
medicines that are sold only
because there's money in the
" stuff, " you lose faith in every
thing. And, you can't always tell
the prescription that cures by
what you read in the papers.
So, perhaps, there's no better
way to sell a remedy, than to
tell the truth about it, and
take the risk of its doing just
what it professes to do.
That's what the World's
Dispensary Medical Associa
tion, of Buffalo, N. Y., docs
Golden Medical Discovery,
Pleasant Pellets, and
Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy.
If they don't do what their
makers say they'll do you
get your money back.
