Deafness Cannot be Cored
By local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear,
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 bearing, and when it is entirely
closed Deafness is the result, and unless
the inflammation can betaken 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

Their Vocalization Is Crude, But Highly
Appreciated by Their Fellows.
In an address delivered in Washing'
ton, D. C, upon "Indian Music," Miss
Alice Fletcher stated that the music
of the Indians is solely and simply
vocal. Their song's are compositions
which have in them nothing' borrowed
from instruments, nothing' of artificial
An Indian melody never serves two
sets of words; there is no instance
where the people have a custom like
our own of singing1 the different stan
zas of a ballad to the same tune.
A larg'e proportion of Indian songs
are entirely without words, syllables
being- used to carry the tones. Per
haps the most striking- peculiarity of
Indian music is the lack of definite
pitch, for there is no such thing' as
standard pitch among- the Indians.
The Indian starts his song' where the
natural quality of his voice and his
present mood renders it easiest for him
to sing- it. A tenor will naturally sing
upon a higher pitch than a bass;
soprano will differ from a contralto,
The pitch of a song- depends upon the
With the Indian there has never been
anything- we should caU vocal training'
any drill as to pitch. Some Indians,
like some white people, always sing'
flat; while some Indians, like some of
us, have what we caU natural musical
ears, and they sing- in tones surprising--
ly near to our standards.
Such Indians are recognized by their
fellows as musical leaders. They are
considered the best singers, men whose
services are sought and paid for on oc
casions of festivity.
. WANTED TO USE PLATINUM.
Interesting Experiment in Coinage Made
by the Rossian Government.
"Once upon a time," said Mr. C. O.
Baker, Jr., of New York, who is con
nected with the only platinum refining-
plant in the United States, Russia
concluded to try the experiment of
using- platinum as a money metal, says
the Washington Post. There is really
little of that article found anywhere
else on the globe except in the Ural
mountains, in the czar's dominions, and
having a monopoly of the precious
stuff, the idea of using' it as a coin
seemed plausible. But it didn't prove
a glittering success, and I have never
seen any coin made of platinum by
that government dated later than 1844
Here is one of the . samples of the
Russian experiment," said Mr. Baker,
taking' from his pocket a piece about
the size of a silver quarter. It bore
the date 1830 and had some Russian
characters on it signifying- it to be of
the value of six rubles, or about 84.75 in
"I gave 811 for it, however," said Mr,
Bakeit "and its intrinsic value is worth
nearly that amount. Of course, no
other nation would go in with Russia
and take platinum for money, seeing
that no other country produced any of
it to speak of, which may be a tip to
some of our silver friends. Platinum
is lower than it was two years ago, be
ing- worth now S10.50 an ounce, though
a while back it was worth 17 an
ounce. At its present price it is just
about half as valuable as gold. It is
the heaviest of metals, its specific grav
ity exceeding- that of gold about 5 per
cent., and so ductile that it can be
drawn into a thread 1-1000 of an inch in
HELPED THEM DIE
Farmer L.each's Indorsement of
"In Nemaha county, southeastern
Nebraska," said Representative Mercer,
of Omaha, "there lives an old farmer
named Rufus Leach. The hog cholera
was raging' in the county and Leach's
hogs were dying-fast, when along came
a smooth-tongued fakir with a patent
cholera cure for hoars. He showed
Leach his g-oods, read him the ,direc-
tions on the bottles, and sold him two
or three bottles of the compound for
"Three or four weeks later Farmer
Leach was standing- at his gate in the
evening- when a well-dressed stranger,
who was driving- by, hailed him. There
was an air of desolation about the farm,
a lull as of death, unrelieved by the
musical bass grunts of a lot of contented
" 'Good evening-, Mr. Leach.' called
out the stranger, pulling- up at the
'Good evening-,' said Leach.
" 'You don't remember me, I see.'
said the stranger.
'No, not exaetly,' said the farmer.

your hogs a few weeks ago,' the stran
' 'Oh, you re the man, are you?' said
" 'Yes,' said the fakir, 'and, by the
way, how did it work.

style, 'I don't know that it done any
good, except to make the hog's die a
Two Very Old ladles.
It is well known that women attain
an extraordinary age of tener than men.
One of the most celebrated female cen
tenarians was Countess Desmond, who
lived one hundred and forty-five years,
and died in the reign of James I. as
the result of an accident. This ex
traordinary woman was, at the age of
one hundred years, so active and lively
that she used to take part in the dances
with young- people.. At the age of one
hundred and forty-five years she trav
eled from Bristol to London, no small
undertaking- in those days. Even this
instance, however, is surpassed by the
case of a French woman named Marie
Prion, who died at St. Colombe at the
age of one hundred and fifty years.
Taxes In Germany.
Instead of paying- taxes as ordinary
mortals the eitizens of Klingenberg-on-the-Main,
Germany, received each
three hundred marks from the income
from- several factories owned -by the
town. The division was made after
the expenses of administration had
been . paid by money from the same
source. That's one place where the
politicians don't g-et it all.
RUB THE OTHER EYE.
Good Advice of an Engineer Regarding'
the Removal of Cinders.
Nine persons out of every ten with a
cinder or any foreign substance in the
eye will instantly begin to rub the eye
with one hand while hunting- for their
handkerchief with the other. They
may and sometimes do- remove the of
fending- cinder, but more frequently
they rub until the eye becomes in
flamed, bind a handkerchief around
the head, and go to bed. This is aU
wrong. The better way is not to rub
the eye with the cinder in it at all, but
rub the other eye as vigorously as you
like, according to a writer in the Med
ical Summary, who relates the follow
"A few years since I was riding- on
the engine of a fast express. The en
gineer threw open the front window,
and I caught a cinder that gave me the
most excruciating- pain. I began to
rub the eye with both hands. 'Let
your eye alone and rub the other eye'
(this from the engineer). I thought he
was chaffing me, and worked the
harder. 'I know you doctors think
you know it all, but if you will let that
eye alone and rub the other one, the
cinder will be out in two minutes,' per
sisted the engineer. I began to rub
the other eye; soon I felt the cinder
down near - the inner canthus, and
made ready to take it out. 'Let "it
alone and keep at the well eye,' shouted
the doctor pro tern. I did so for a min
ute longer, and looking in a small
glass he gave me found the offender on
my cheek. Since then I have tried it
many times, and have advised many
others, and have never known it to
fail in one instance, unless it was as
sharp as a piece of steel or something'
that cut into the ball and required an
operation to remove it."
The Old Man Was Somewhat
"Mornin', boys," said Old Jack, who
believed in judicious flattery, and
whose doings are reported in Harper's
Young1 People. As he spoke he laid
down his saw. "Feelin' well, I hope?
Yes? Good. Nothm' lake feelin' well
to make a feller feel good. You don't
look powerful strong1 though, Tommy;
you re thin.
"What's that? You're wiry, be ye?

"Hokey! ye went through that like

The old man walked into the house,
and Bobby and Tommy went home,
wondering1 if their friend hadn't put up
a little game on them, after all,
THE CONSCIENCE FUND.
Founded Early In This Century, It Mow
Amounts to About S270.00O.
The "Conscience Fund" has fig-ured
in the statements of the treasury de
partment for over eighty years, says F,
Li. Crisman m ljippmcott s. it was
opened by the register of the treasury
department in 1811 and appears in the
g-eneral fund of the g-ovornment under
the head of miscellaneous receipts.
Like other assets of the treasury it can
be used for any purpose that congress
may deem proper.- Its origin was due
to the fact that away back in the- be
ginning- of the present century some
unknown person began to feel the sharp
thrusts of conscience. In some way he
had defaulted the government, and
could find relief only by returning- the
money to the treasury. This was the
beginning- of. the account showing- the
receipts of moneys by the government
from unknown persons. Since then the
fund has been accumulating' in larg'e
and small sums, until at the present
time it aggregates nearly $270,000. Re
mittances are received nearly every
week. During the prevalence of the
hard times the receipts have fallen off
considerably, and sometimes a fort
night elapses before a communication
is received, showing that even a man's
conscience can feel the effect of tight
DANGERS IN THE MINES.
Fay for Men Who Are Likely at
Any Time to Be Suffocated.
Great and mystically dreadful is the
earth from a mine's depth, says Mc-
Clure s Magazine. Man is in the im
placable grasp of nature. It has only
to tighten slightly and he is crashed
like a bug. His loudest shriek of
agony would be as potent as his final
moan to bring help from that fair land
that lies, like heaven, over his head.
.There is an insidious silent enemy in
the gas. If the huge fanwheel on the
top of the earth should stop for a brief
period there is certain death, and a
panic more terrible than any occurring
where the sun has shone ensues down
under the tons of rock. If a man may
escape the gas, the floods, the "squeezes"
of falling rock, the cars shooting
through little tunnels, the precarious
elevators, the hundred perils, there
usually comes to him an attack of
miners asthma .that slowly racks
and shakes him into the graye. Mean
while, he gets three dollars a day and
his laborer one dollar.
