F. A. WERMAN, OF BALTIMORE, SAYS:
Baltimore, Md.. March -50. 1901. j
Gentlrmfn : Being; entirely cured of deafness thanks to your treatment, I will now give you 1
* full history of my case, to be used at your discretion. • ■
About five years ago my right ear began to sing, and this kept on getting worse, until I lost
my hearing in this ear entirely.
I underwent a treatment for catarrh, for three months, without any success, consulted a num
ber of physicians among others, the most eminent ear specialist of this city, who told me that
only an operation could help me, and even that only temporarily, that the head noises would
then cease, but the hearing in the affected ear would be lost forever.
I then saw your advertisement acciden'ally in a New York paper, and ordered your treat
ment. After I had used it only a few days according to your directions, the noises ceased, and
to-day. after five weeks my hearing in the diseased ear has been entirely restored. I thank you
heartily and beg to remaiu Very truly yours.

KEEPING AN AGREEMENT.
Mrs. Dubois, wife of the senator
from Idaho, is an enthusiast on the
subject of child culture. Before her
marriage she was a kindergartner,
and she lms made child culture her

reeemly to a friend, “the senator

“We agreed,” said Mrs. Dubois,
“that after we were married he
should never talk politics to me and
1 should never talk child culture to
him. And we have kept that agree
ment scrupulously ever since,” she
“You are an exceptional couple
to be able to keep such an agree
ment,” was the comment.
“But we have kept it,” said Mrs.
Dubois; “that is, we have kept it
to this extent —the senator never
talks politics to me.” —New York

New York because she knew more
about that city than others. She
expressed her belief that too many

A Sure Enough Miracle.
The nomination of the lord may
or of Dublin reminds us of a story
which was told in Dublin shortly
after the visit of Queen Victoria.
The then lord mayor, Mr. (now Sir
Thomas) Pile, is a fishmonger, and
the sheriff, Mr. (now Sir Joseph)
Downes, is a baker. Two working
men were discussing the honors
which had been conferred upon
them. “It is a quare world,” said
one; “many’s the time Mr. Pile serv
ed fish to me over the counter, and
now he’s Sir Thomas.”
“Yes,” said the other, “and I’ve
ofien bought bread of Mr. Downes,
and now he's Sir Joseph.”

-^ r * Coronation Prices.
Wheg Edward, 1. of England wa3
crowned, the price was half a far
thing; a whole farthing sufficed in
Edward ll.’s time; to see Edward
111. rich men paid a halfpenny,
which we are told “was well given.”
A really good seat from which to
“assist” at the coronation of Edward
IV. cost twopence, while twice that
amount insured an equally good
view of Edward Vl.’s procession.
Since thon the price has gone up by
sixpences, shillings, crowns and
guineas, and it is more than likely
that a good view of Edward VII.
and his splendors will cost as much
as the whole coronation of all the
Edwards that went before him.
A Bicycle Clock.
A clock made of parts of bicycles
is the production of an ingenious
Frenchman. It is twelve feet high,
the framework consisting of one
specially made wheel and twelve or
dinary ones, all fitted with pneu
matic tires. The figures denoting
the hours are made of crank rods
and are attached to an inner rim.
The hands are of the steel piping
used for the framework of bicycles.
The minute strokes are small nick
el spokes, and the top of the clock
is a curious arrangement of twelve
handle bars. The clock strikes the
hours and quarters on bicycle bells.
The Londonderry Diamonds.
It is expected that the most re
splendent diamonds at the coming
coronation will be worn by Lady
Londonderry. For several genera
tions the Londonderry diamonds
have been in full blaze. As far back
as 1835 it was recorded by a fash
ionable diarist that “Lady London
derry as Cleopatra was in a dress
literally embroidered with emeralds
and diamonds from top to toe.”
Tire latest novelty in Paris is the
coffee cigarette, made not from the
ground bean,but from the leaf of the
tree. It affords a fragrant and, it is
claimed, harmless smoke, complete
ly weaning the palate from tobacco
and thereby conferring a benefit on
the race. The cigarettes are made
in different degrees of strength.
