By local applications, as they cannot

There is only one way to cure Deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets
inflamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, 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 condi
tion, hearing will be destroyed forever;
-nine cases out of ten are caused by
-catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous surfaces.

"Be not amiable overmuch" is a maxim

not only makes over the entire prop

acy as the result of an adventure with
grouse. The story is amusing in itself,
to say nothing of its interest as throw
ing light upon an impending lawsuit, '
which will probably take high rank
among Austrian causes celebres. For
the will is about to be contested by
the lady, who ne ver did anything to
incur the anger of her wealthy rela
tive, and who maintains that he was of
unsound mind when he drew up his
last testament. Her husband, Baron
X., unwittingly- but mortally of
fended the touchy old gentleman, 1
and one million florins is the price of
his excessive amiability. j
The wealthy Count Y., paid a visit to '
Baron X. last autumn, and immediately
after his arrival explained that he had
come to do what he had never done in
his life before to shoot grouse. He
held the opinion that, being an excel
lent shot with a rcolver,he must like
wise be a good marksman with a gun;
and he had, in fact, laid a wager that
he would not return empty handed
from his first day's shooting. Count Y.
was quite serious in a!2 this, and hon
estly believed he could accomplish his
desire with the greatest ease. Baron
X., however, knew better, and con
sidering that the count was not only
somewhat deaf, but likewise very near
sighted, kindly resolved within him
self to facilliate matters as much as
With this object in view he called up
the head gamekeeper. "Ferdinand,"
he said, "Count Y. is going out for a
day's shooting Thursday. I'm afraid
he's a very bad shot, and yet he insists
on showing us that he can work won
ders. 'Now, I want you to arrange
matters so that, whatever he hits or
misses, he may feel convinced that he
has shortened the lives of a few birds.
You understand? The details you may '
work out at your leisure. Make no
blunder." Ferdinand said only "H'm!"
in his master's presence, but he used
very wild words later on,and not hitting .
upon any likely idea himself, he called
on his assistant, Franz, and instructed
him to mature a plan. ,
Now, Franz is a man of many re
sources, and his name has become,
proverbial in sporting circles in Aus
tria as a wily Ulysses. A few hours '
later he unfolded a project to his senior
which caused the latter to split his
sides with laughter. 'Franz was to
hunt up a daring poacher, who had
been twice wounded while trespassing i
on these very estates, and to ask him
to appear at a certain place Thursday
with some recently shot birds and to ,
drop one or two after each of the j
count's shots. The plan was-agreed to, '
the poacher promised to be invisibly on
the spot, and the various stations at
which he should succe ssively drop the !
grouse were determined upon.

count and baron were early on the

and sad as undertakers. , "I don't see
anything about here," murmured the
count after a time. ''It's true I am
somewhat nearsighted, but " "Look
there, your excellency! Look there!
You are in luck!" shouted the head
gamekeeper at the top of his voice, en
deavoring to look the while as if he
were only whispering the information
into the sensitive ear of his master's
His excellency became flurried, took
out his monocle, fixed the spot pointed
out to him, and said: "Well, I
don't see Oh, that black mass, do
you mean?" "Yes, your excellency.
There are half a dozen there if there is
one. Now is the time, your excellency,
to fire." The count shouldered his
gun, to the mortal terror of the baron,
who feared he should be called to his
last account before that day's shooting
would be done; then he shut one eye
and pulled the trigger. Something was
seen to falL
"Splendid shot, that, your excellency.
I saw the bird fall. He's, done for." In
stead of hurrying to the place where
the feathered victim was supposed to
lie the gamekeepers allowed the count
to go before them, so that he might
see the handiwork with his own eyes.
Arriving at the spot he stooped, picked
up something dark, fumbled at it a
few seconds, drew out a brace of
grouse, looked in stupefaction at the
two gamekeepers, who were desper
ately waging war with their facial
muscles, and then flung down his gun
in disgust, rushed from the field, and
left by the following train. What he
had picked up was a bag with recently
killed grouse. The poacher, it seems,
was late on the field, and reached the
spot just as the count had fired, so that
be had no time to open the bag, and he
lacked the needful presence of mind to
keep it and himself out ' of sight. He
flung it down and rushed off to the
next place. But that was the last
shot fired there that day, and it cost
the baron over one million florins.
TOOK HALF IN RATS.
Bow China's Dowager Empress Mltlgateo.
. the Force of the Pestilence.
A recent number of the North China
Herald, just received in this city,' tells
this story of the Empress Dowager of
"A rather good story is told among
the Chinese about the empress dowa
ger and the plague. The empress
keeps constantly burning, day and
night, in her palace', eighteen lamps,
which represent the eighteen prov
inces of China. Not long ago one of the
lamps, although d it -received precisely
the same attention as all the others,
was burning very badly, and the em
press sent for the chief imperial as
tronomer to learn the reason. The
chief astronomer having carefully con
sidered the matter and consulted the
archives, told the empress that the
lamp which was burning so badly rep
resented the province of Canton, which
was about to be afflicted with a serious
epidemic, in which the god 'of pesti
lence had determined to take off eight
tenths of the people.
"The empress was very much con
cerned at being told this, and asked the
chief astronomer how such a dreadful
doom might be averted from eight
tenths of her people in the province.
The chief astronomer said that the god
might perhaps be moved by prayer and
oE erings, and everything was done to
placate him by the empress dowager's
orders After this the chief astrono
mer was asked what success had been
achieved, and, after much, considera
tion and consultation, he replied that
the god of pestilence had consented to
compromise but this was absolutely
the best he could do for four-tenths
human beings and four-tenths rats.
Thus the frightful mortality of rats and
human beings at Canton this spring is
HAVE THEIR OWN METHODS.
The Cassowaries Pursue a Plan of Their
Own for Catching Pish.
The methods employed by the casso
wary in catching fish' differ materially
from those of the common fish-hawk.
The fish-hawk employs very much the
same methods as the birds of prey,
while the cassowary fishes according to
a method of its own and uses a good deal
of strategy. A number of years ago I
was standing near the bank of a river
when I saw a cassowary come down to
the water's edge and stand for some
minutes, apparently watching the
water carefully. ' It then stepped into
the river where it was about two feet
deep, and, squatting down, spread its
wings out, submerged them, the feath
ers being spread and ruffled. The bird
remained perfectly . motionless and
kept its eye closed, as if in sleep. It
remained in this position at least half
an hour, when it suddenly closed its
wings, and, straightening its feathers,
stepped out on the bank. Here it shook
itself several times, whereupon a num
ber of small fishes fell out of its wings
from amid its feathers, which the bird
immediately picked up and swallcnved.
The fishes had evidently mistaken the
feathers for a kind of weed that grows
along the river bank and which resem
bles the feathers of the cassowary.
The smaller fishes often seek a hiding
place in these weeds to avoid the larger
ones that prey upon them.
TIME AT THE NORTH POLE.
The Slan Who -First Reaches That Point
Will Meet with Surprises.
If ever the north pole is reached the
adventurous spirits who get there will
find that they have . actually out
stripped Father Time altogether; in
fact, he will have given up the rate en
tirely, for at the northern and south
ern extremities of the earth's axis
there is no fixed time at all, says the
London Globe. At any moment it can
be noon or midnight, breakfast time or
supper time, work time or play time,
wnicnever one uses, uioctcs will be a
fraud and delusion, for at the pole all
degrees of longitude converge into
one, and therefore all times. The pos
sibilities of such a position are endless.
Not only, too, will the clocks be out,
but the calendar as well. It can be, at
will, either yesterday or to-day, or to
morrow.. We have heard a lot of fool
ish people ask what the use and pleas
ure can be of getting to the north pole,
but a little reflection will show us ad
vantages can be gained there which
cannot be found in any other part of
the globe. There, at any rate, instead
of being like the poor inhabitants of
lower latitudes, the slaves of time, we
can turn the tables and be its masters.
THE GERMAN'S JOKE.
The Cute Smoker Plays Bim Game and
Has It Returned.
' The . following "Fraud Upon an In
surance Company," in the Deutsche Ta-
bak-Zeitung, is certainly just a little
too good to be true: A cunning fellow,
who wanted to smoke the best cigars
at the cheapest possible cost, bought
one thousand cigars of the highest
quality and corresponding price, and
immediately insured the whole stock.
When he had smoked the last of them
he demanded seven hundred and fifty
marks from the insurance company on
the ground that the whole of his in
sured stock, ten boxes of cigars, had
been consumed by fire! The Solomonic
court decided in favor of the plaintiff.
The company then brought an action
of conspiracy against the smoker, ac
cusing him of having intentionally pnt
fire to his own cigars and deliberately
destroyed his property. Hereupon the
same wise court condemned the in
sured smoker to three month's impris
Origin of the Walking Stick.
Probably the patriarch's staff was

endless changes. In 1701 footmen at

carry swords, these being replaced by
a porter's staff. Thirty years later
gentlemen were forbidden to carry
swords, but allowed to carry large oak
sticks. Before many years varnished
