Deafneng 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 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
'.fiaraed condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for

HABITS OF SOME PRESIDENTS.
Of Secen Tears Moue Bare Arthur Fald
Attention to Society.
Gen. Grant brought the camp into
the white house, says Harper's Maga
zine. Mr. Hayes liad lived at Wash
ington as a representative at a hotel or
a boarding-house. Gen. Garfield had
settled in the capital in a house of his
own, and had enjoyed the kind of social
life that may be had anywhere in this
country and that runs to literary clubs
that are formed to facilitate the escape
of unpublished manuscripts. To en
tourage talent and literary ambition
was a great pleasure of the president,
whose murder cut short the term that
would have been marked with more
geniality and agreeable talk than is
usual at the white house. Mr. Arthur
brought city manners and customs
with him. People who did not know
him were greatly mistaken in him.
There had been a good deal of refine
ment and elegance in Mr. Arthur's
home, and its influence made the white
house more of -a social center than
it had been before or than it has
been since. Then came Mr. Har
rison who had passed six years in the
senate and a Washington boarding
house, and Mr. Cleveland, who went to
the capital a bachelor, having lived
most of his life in apartments in a Buf
falo business block.
None of these men adopted the man
ners and customs of court life, with the
exception of Mr. Arthur, who insisted
that those with whom he came in contact-should
pay his office a respect some
thing more than the formal decent re
spect of good manners. The rest knew
nothing of the rules which Washing
ton society had laid down for its own
and their guidance, and which were as
conflicting as the various interests that
invented and frequently modified them.
Moreover, they have seemed to care a
good deal less. .They or thoir wives or
their secretaries studied up the neces
sary regulatipns that govern the inter
course between the head of the nation
and the diplomatic representatives of
foreign powers. And, although Mr.
Jefferson insisted on taking out to
dinner what woman he would, regard
less of her husband's rank, modern
presidents have done their best to ob
serve the proprieties in this respect.
THE CARDINAL'S CLOSE CALL..
His Keen Sense of Jmell Once Saved Him
from Being Poisoned.
Years have rolled by since, but the
story of an almost fatal accident to
Cardinal Gibbons has lost none of its
interest through not having been pre
viously .told, says the Philadelphia
Call. Just before he rose to give the
impassioned reading of his poem,
"King Lear," at the anniversary din
ner of the Sons of St. George, Prof. H.
H. Hay, of Girard college, told of the
happening as it had been related to
him while he was traveling in Europe
by a "priest acquainted with the cir
"While the cardinal, who was then
an archbishop," said Prof. Hay, "was
traveling across the Atlantic some
years ago he complained one afternoon
that he wasn't fcelinir verv well, but
was told by the ship's surgeon to await
medical treatment until the following
day, when something would be done
for him if his sickness continued. On
the day following the steward of the
steamer was duly sent with a remedy
for the eminent prelate. As he was
about to place the glass containing
the draught to his lips the archbishop
was almost overcome by a strange and
pungent odor. He hesitated a moment
and lowered the vessel containing the
liquid until he- recovered from the ef
fect of the smell. Glancing incidental
ly at the bottle in the steward's hand
he noticed the word 'poison' on a label,
and, not without a little alarm, asked
the man if he knew what he was offer
ing. The steward replied that he had
done as. was directed by the doctor.
Alarmed, the archbishop sent post
haste to the medical man to make
sure of what was being tendered him.
This time it was the surgeon who had
occasion to manifest surprise. He hur
ried to his distinguished patient's side
and informed the archbishop that the
glass offered him contained enough
deadly poison to kill any two men."
Illinois Comes Third with Forty-Two
Great Book Collection.
Massachusetts is far and away ahead
of all other states in the supply of read
ing for the people, says the Troy (N.
Y.) Times. Its U12 free public libraries
have a total of 2,760,000 volumes, and
this gives 1,233 volumes for each 1,000
of the population. The nearest rival
to Massachusetts is New Hampshire,
with forty-two libraries containing
175,000 volumes, being 464 books per
1,000 of the people, Third in rank is
the great state of Illinois, with forty
two libraries, the same in number as
the little state of the White moun
tains, but it has only 130 volumes to
each 1,000 people. The next four in
their order are Michigan, Rhode Is
land, New York and Indiana. This
places our state sixth in rank, while it
holds first place in population, wealth
and educational opportunities.
Tne millionaire givers to public li
braries have been few up to date. Ac
cording to Mr. Fletcher's book they do
not number more than seven. They
are: Chicago, John Crerar, 83,000,000;
W. N. Newberry, 82,000,000; New York,
the Astors, 82,000,000; Baltimore,
George Peabody, 81,400,000; Enoch
Pratt, 81,225,000; Philadelphia, Dr.
James Rush, 81,500,000; Pittsburgh,
Andrew Carnegie, 81,000,000. Look over
this list and compare it with the
scores of philanthropists who have
given their millions to found colleges,
universities and even special schools,
and it looks infinite sim ally small. The
rich men have not yet in large num
bers risen to a true appreciation of the
value to society and to civil affairs of
these colleges of the people. We have
more colleges and universities than
can be supported without frequent en
dowments, scholarships and other
gifts. But the library once established
and endowed sustains itself, and is
never lacking' in patronage.
MOURNING FOR SNAKES.
New England Reptiles Host Be Takina;
Whenever you say: "This is a splen
did season" to the Boston Journal's
snake editor, he shakes his head sor
rowfully and remarks: "Not a bit' of it,
It's the worst season on record."
"Why, didn't you see the other day
that rattlesnakes had appeared at
Exeter, N. H.?" he was asked by an in
quirer. "What of" that?" was the reply.
"Would you consider that that was
worth being compared with the story
from the west about the man who
went down into an abandoned mine
and killed one hundred and thirty
three rattlesnakes, drank a quart of
whisky and earned one hundred dollars
in less than an hour?"
And the snake editor's eyes fairly
glistened at the thought of the ad
venture. "Don't you remember the eight-foot
snake found out at the Back Bay?"
"What is an eight-foot snake in Bos
ton to be compared with the big ser
pent stories coming- from other parts of
the country. There was the boa con
strictor who escaped from a cage and
hid in a sewer."
"Oh, that was old."
"No; that happened in Washington,
and is vouched for. Then there was
the duel between two jealous boa con
strictors in a Brazilian forest, and the
two different stories about men barely
escaping being swallowed by pythons,
and the educated black snake which
milked a cow, and the man who caught
eight ground hogs and was attacked by
black snakes and had to throw the ani
mals away to appease the reptiles."
This was a long sentence and the
snake editor had to pause for breath,
but before the questioner could get in
a query, he resumed the catalogued
"Then there was the reappearance of
the sea serpent in the Pacific ocean,
and the man who eats rattlesnakes in
preference to spring chickens, and the
snake charmer who was being photo
graphed with his pets, when they went
on a strike and demolished the estab
lishment. I had almost forgotten the
two cases of people on the California
coast who were seized by shall I say
ocotpuses or octopi? and almost killed.
No, this has been a splendid season for
snake 6tories in every section of the
country but New England, and it is
enough to drive an enterprising snake
editor west, where there is something
to do. New England isn't in it."
And with that the disheartened snake
editor mournfully wended his way. to
ward a place where he could go in
training for seeing snakes as much as
SIGNING THE DECLARATION.
Flies Festered the fathers of the Repub
lic as They Created It.
. Jefferson was fond of telling a story
which illustrates in a forcible manner
the importance that absurdly insignifi
cant matters may sometimes assume,
says the Philadelphia Press. When the
deliberative body that gave the world
the declaration of independence was in
session its proceedings were conducted
in a hall close to which was situated a
livery stable. The weather was warm,
and from the stable came swarms of
flies that lighted on the legs of the
honorable members and, biting
through the thin silk stockings then
in fashion, gave infinite annoyance. It
was no uncommon sight, said Jeffer
son, to see a member making a speech
with a large handkerchief in hand and
pausing at every moment to thrash the
flies from his thinly-protected calves.
The opinion of the body was not unan
imous in favor of the document, and
under other circumstances discussion
might have been protracted for days, if
not weeks, but the flies were intoler
able. Efforts were made to find
another hall, free from the pests, but
in vain. As the weather became
warmer the flies grew worse, and the
flapping of handkerchiefs was heard
all over the hall as an accompaniment
to the voices of the speakers. In de
spair at last some one suggested that
matters be hurried so that the body
might adjourn and get away from the
flies. There were a few mild protests,
but no one heeded them, the immortal
declaration was hurriedly copied and,
with handkerchiefs in hand fighting
flies as they came, the members hast
ened up to the table to sign the
authentic copy and leave the flies in
the lurch. Had it not been for the liv
ery stable and its inmates there is no
telling when the document would have
been completed, but it certainly would
not have been signed on the Fourth.
Some of Them Reach the Age of Six
Score and Five.
It has long been a well-established
fact that abnormal longevity is more
common among the Russians than
among any other of the European na
tions, says the London News. From
an official report collated from well
authenticated local registers, it now
appears that the government of KiefE
takes the first place of all Russian
provinces in this respect. During last
year, it is officially stated, ' there were
fourteen centenarian deaths registered
in that government. In the city of
Kieff one man died aged 110 years,
while within the suburban circle two
women died aged respectively 102 and
In Berditcheff two men reached the
respective ages of 101 and 114 years. In
Vassilkoff another patriarch died in his
115th year.. In the same district there
died a Jewess aged 105; in Svenigorod
ka, a man of 110 years; in Tarastcsha,
another of 105; in Uman, two men aged
respectively 106 and 102 years; in Rado
mytzel, a Jew agad 107 and a Christian
aged 103; and lastly, a man of 105 years
died at Tcherkassy.
Here are fourteen persons, dying
within the same year and within the
limits of one district, whose united
ages amount to 1,489 years. According
to the Saratoff journals there is still
living in that government an ancient
veteran of the First Napoleon army,
formerly Lieut. Savin, and since 1812
known as Nicolai Alexandrovitch Savin,
who has celebrated 126 birthdays.
