Deafness Cannot Be Cured
liy local applications , as they cauuot re.ich the
diseased portion of the ear. TJiere Is only one
way to cure Deafness , and that Is by constitu
tional remedies. Deafness Is caused by an Inflamed -
flamed condition of the mucous lining of the
Eustaehiaii Tube. When this tube gets inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hear
ing , and when It is entirely closed Deafness is
the result ; and unless the inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to its normal
condition , hearing will bu destroyed forever ;
nine cases out of ten are caus'ed by catarrh ,
which is nothing but an iutkimed condition o (
the mucous surfaces.

Alter a Long Illness.
Thomas W. Tipton , one of Nebraska's

was born in CadiOhio. . , August 5 , 1817 ,
and was elected to the legislature of Ohio

braska , lie was elected a delegate to the

Man and "Woman Have a Blood-
cjiirdltiig Adventure.
Back Berry , whose farm is , on the
Niobrara Ttiver , twenty-five mites north
east of O'Neill , tells the best snake story
of the season. Jt runs as follows :
One day last week Mr. Berry and Miss
Caldwell of Sioux City , his niece , were
strolling along the river bottom cast of the
house through a beautiful natural grove ,
when all at once they discovered by the
warning whirr of hundreds of horny tails
that they were in the midst of a congress
of rattlesnakes that seemed to be in session
as a committee of the whole for executive
Mr. Berry happened to have a spade in
his hand and with it laid about , him vigor
ously right and left. Miss Caldwell as
sisted with a club. When the battle was
over they co.unted 23(5 ( dead rattlesnakes
and half as many blue racers. A great
many of the snakes had as high as eleven
rattles. They were an extraordinary
vicious lot and instead of attempting to es
cape came savagely at the intruders and
fought doggedly until the last one was - -
terminated. The rattles , which fill an . - . -
dinary cigar box , they cut off and prize
very highly as mementos of an'exceedingly
perilous position.
In speaking of his experience with the
rattlers , Mr. Berry said he had been in
some pretty close places , but was never so
thoroujihlj' frightened as when he found
himself outflanked by those snakes on
murder bent. As for Miss Caldwell , Mr.
Berry said he had never seen as brave a
woman. When the light was the fiercest
and the snakes the thickest , and it looked
like a sure case of beinir bitten , she neither
screamed nor fainted , but coolly laid them
out with her club.
A peculiar thing about the matter is that
a rattlesnake is rarely seen south of the
river , while they are quite numerous on
the Boyd County side. It is Mr. Berry's
opinion that they crossed the river and
were going into winter quarters in a den
that is thought to be in that vicinity. A
big killiir" was made near the same place
several years ago.
Two Masked Robbers Make a "Haul
in Omaha.
Two masked men on the night ofNov. .
30 held up Conductor Sam A. Armstedt
and Motorman Mike Clark in Omaha and
relieved them of $10 in cash and a silver
watch. The train was just about to pull
out from the west end of the Sherman
Avenue and South Omaha line at Thirty-
sixth Street and Ames Avenue , when two
men suddenly emerged from the darkness
and jumped on the car. One of them had
a white handkerchief tied over the lower
part of the face , and the other one had a
red one tied in the same manner.
They did not stop to bandy words , but
presented revolvers to the faces of the
astonished street car men and commanded
them in language more forcible than ele
gant to shell out what they had. The
street car men did not wait to be asked
iwice , for each one felt the cold steel
pressed against his forehead. There was
a sudden transfer of property , with which
the robbers vanished into the darkness.
AVhy a Lodge AVill Not Pay.
Sherman MtvFadden died at Lushton
after two weeks' illness. He died of fever ,
the exact symptoms of which are not
known , as he was not attended by a physi
cian , lie and his wife were both Christian
Scientists and he died in the faith if not
because of it. Jle was a son of Capt. J.
McFadden , sheriff of Fillmore County.
Both he and his \Vife refused to have a
doctor. A Christian Scienlist from Lincoln
treated him. The local members of Mod
ern Woodmen Lodge asked them to em-
plov a physician , but both objected. The
policy of $2,000 on the life of McFadden
will be contested on this account.

Corporal Faire and Privnted Jock-
r-ns Acquitted by Courtmartial.
Corporal John S. Fairc and Private
Henry J. Jockens were acquitted Nov. 27 by
courtmartial hi Omaha of manslaughter ,
the specific charge being the killing of a
Jleeing deserter Private Samuel Morgan
of the Eighth Cavalry.
The shooting occurred at La Plalle ,
Sarpy County , and at the time the ollicials
of that coun'ty decided that the ends o !
justice wouldbe satisfied if the military
ollicials handled the case. Gov. Poyntei
ordered Hie attornpy general to take the
case up in the event of an acquittal , his
excellency holding that as long as the
community was not under military law
the shooting of a fugitive from the guard
house was an arbitrary act and a menace
to the public safety.
Supt. Jackson Gives an opinion in
Case Referred to Him. t

songs before her class. Mandamus pro
ceedings were recently instituted in the

cision which is quite in favor of ihe bible ,
holding that there is nothing in the lawsol
Nebraska to prevent simple reading , with
out note or comment , or repeating the
Lord's rrayer.

smoking , baggage and mail car'and Sheriff
Sweeney took a seat behind the prisoner
and his deputy sat in the seat in front ol
him. When the train was a short distance
from Brunswick the prisoner asked the
deputy for his penkdife , as lie wanted tc
clean his linger nails before reaching
Sioux City , and the deputy complied with
the request.
"Ha ! " exultantly whooped the prisoner ,
and opening a long blade he drew it across
his neck from his right ear almost to the
jugular vein. The blood gushed and
spurted and a dozen men were on theii
feet. "With an awful oath that made the
blood of the hearers run cold an oath
that was half a wail of despair and a curse
of hate he fell on his face and expired.
The body was taken from the train at
Plainview and prepared for burial. The
sheriff took the bo-ly to Belle Fourche.
