For Catarrhal Deafness
and Head Noises
Here in America there is" much suffering
from catarrh end head nolsee. American
people would do well to consider the method
moloyd by the Enffllsh to combat this in
eidlous dlsae. -eryone knows how damp
the EnirMah climate la and how dampness
effects those suffering from catarrh. In
Krsland they treat catarrhal deafness end
head noises a a constitutional disease and
vse an internal remedy for it that la really
Sufferers who could scarcely hear a watch
tick tall how they had their hearlnc restored
fey this English treatment to such an extent
that the tick of a watch was plainly audible
seven or eight inches away from either ear.
Therefore, if you know someone who is
troubled with catarrh, catarrhal deafness
er head noises, cut out . this formula and
hand it to them and you will have been the
means of savins some poor sufferer perhaps
from total deafness. The prescription can
ha easily prepared at home for about 75c
and is made aa. follows:
From your druggist obtain 1 ox. of Par
mint (double strength), about T5o worth.
Take this home, and add to it U pint of
ot water and 4 ounces of granulated sugar;
stir until dissolved. Take a tablespoonful
four times a day.
Parmlnt Is used in this way not only to
reduce by tonic action the Inflammation and
swelling in the Eustachian Tubes, and thus
to equalise tbo air pressure on the drum,
but to correct .an excess of secretions in the
middle ear. and the reeults it g-lvea are
usually remarkably quick and effective.
Every person who has catarrh In any form
should give this recipe a trial .and tree
themeolves from thia destructive disease.

EVERY Music Lover in Portland knew of the Clevenger Music Company, formerly located
in the Morgan Building on Broadway High rents and over ambitiousness forced the
Clevenger Music Company into Bankruptcy early in the year.
Their stock of Music, comprising more than 50,000 pieces, was the newest, the latest and the best selected in the state of
Oregon. All the popular editions, all the standard publishers, were represented, and the Clevenger stock was, without doubt,
the finest assortment ever brought West.
CLEVENGEIi FAILED! The wonderful Clevenger stock passed into possession of the courts. It was offered to the high
est bidder for spot cash. We had the outlet for this enormous collection of music, and on Saturday the stock was sold by
order of court and Eilers cash bought it in.
The Clevenger stock is now in the Eilers Store. It goes out to the public at the greatest saving ever known. Not a
single piece is reserved, everything is included at startling, smashing and unprecedented sacrifices.
