Deafness Cannot Be Cure<?
by local •applications, as they* cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only cno way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed condi
tion 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.
Deafness is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will bo destroyed forever; nine
cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.
W will give On* TfundrM Dollars forany case of
Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured b 7
