Deafness Cannot n Cured
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 condition, hearing will be des
troyed forever; nine caws out of ten are
caused by catarrh, which is nothing but
an inflamed condition of Die mucous
We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh)
that cannot be cured by Halls Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars, free.

Digest of Gams Laws.
The act ol congress ot Mat 25, 1900,
commonly known as the Lacy act, '"An
act to enlarge the powers ot t' e depart
ment of agriculluie, prohibit die trans
portation by inlerslateconimerceofgame
killed in violation ot law, and for other
purposes'" has given new interest to the
restrictions passed by the various stales
foi the protection of game laws ni ik-s it
difficult to obtain the knowledge of
local laws essential to Intel igeul
observance ol the n qui re men Is of the
Federal Isw ; and to supply this want a
pamphlet giving information concerning
game, (tie seasons, shipment and tale
thereof, baa been issued by the biological
survey of the United Stales department
of ugriculture a few copies of which have
been reieived by Game Warden Qnimbv.
The tilth section ol the Lacy law reads
r-ection 3. mat an dead bodies, or
parts thereof, of any furrign game ani
mals, os game or song biide. the im
portation of which is prohibited, or the
leud bodies, or parts thereof, of any
wild game animals, or game or song
birds, transported into any et.le or
territory, or remaining therein, for use,
consumption, gale or storage therein,
shall upon arrival in such state or terri
tory be subject to the operation and
effect of the laws of such state or terri
tory enacted in the exerciso ot its police
powers, to te tame extent and in the
same manner as though such annuals
and birds bad been produced in such
state cr territory, and shall not.be exempt
therefrom by reason ol being Introduced
therein in original packages or other
wise. This act shall not prevent the
importation, t ran portal ion, or sale of
birds or bird plumage manufactured
from the feathers of barnyard fowl.
Several game dealers of New York
have given it out that they Intend to
continue lh) importation and esle of
European game, under the impressson
that the Lacy law does not apply to lucb
traffic, and (i. O. Shields, president of
the league of American Sportsmen, bat
given notice that the league will prose
cute any dealer who offers foreign game
for sale iu viulation ol local slain laws
The laet sentence in the section quoted
seems intended to prevent the iuipoita
tion of birds or bird plumage, unless
manufactured from the feathers of barn
yard fowls and, as this is. likely to in
terfere with the "proper" ornamentation
of women's hais, it may cause trouble.
An idea may be formed ot the manner
in which the department lias under
taken in the phamphlut issued to supply
the lack of a complete digest of the game
laws, from the following extracts in re
gal d to the close seasons in Oregon,
which are given as follows :

at all times!, moose and mountain sheep,

Silver-gray tquirrels, January 1 to

l HIS FATHER'S SON f
j .wj y.wv.w. nvr,.r,n
rpiIE day so long anticipated had ar-
l rived at last, and Noel bnerrilT
stood, a tully entered student, on the
steps of St. Paul's hospital. His fath
er'a stories of tbe life at the old college
had tired the boy a youthful ardor, and
away in the plaint of India be hud
vowed to be a doctor, and to win a
plr.u in the 1. M. S.
And now It was as dust In bis mouth.
for he was alotie. In his father ste
tion lie had been the pride of the Euro
pean staff, for no oue could beat him
in any branch of athletics, but at St.
Paul s he waa au unnoticed unit.
Presently a man whom be sew at
once was a .native of India, came and
stood close by bis tide. Moved by the
urgent need for companionship, hher
rirT nude the first advances.
"I wonder if you feel as lonely as 1
do?" be asked.
The native turned abruptly.
"I'm from India," be replied, a dark
flush sweeping' over bis face as he
heard a muttered "Nigger" spoken by
one studeut to another.
"So am 1!" exclaimed Sherrlff. "I'm
from Amritsar, where my father is sta
tioned. Hie name is SherrilT, and be is
a colonel in the Indian medical. And
"I'm a Hindoo, and my European
name is Pumphlett. Rut, surely, you
won't talk to a nigger!" His tone was
acrid in Its bitterness, and Sherrlff
looked up In surprise.
"0, come, lHmphhtt," he said, eager
ly, "'Hint's not fair. Anyway, let you
and 1 be friends."
"Well, Sherrlff," hesitatingly an
awered Pumphlett, I'm a queer-tempered
niati; but let it be so."
"Then come iind live at my tllgglngsl
There's a capital front nnd backroom
above my floor, and we can read to
"Now, look here,. young- man," said
Pnniphlett three weeks later. "It's time
we begun to rend lit night. (Irlnningat
the hospital nil day won't pass our ex
unn for us. unless we work at nipht,
too. We've seen nil the plays, we've
visited most of the halls, und you and 1
have got lo buckle. to!"
Potli men were kitting In Sheriff's
rooms smoking nnd discussing the
events of the day.
"Very wed," luJly replied Uie lad,
knocking out the ashes from his pipe.
"Whut do you suggest V"
"Well, wrought lo grind up our bones
regulnrly at night before working at
St. Paul's in the morning. I'm sick of
going out, ami t jou?
"I've got a capital skeleton in a box
upstairs," sniil ShcirilT, laughing. "1
got It" Then he stopped abruptly, at
he caught sight of his companion's look
of Inquiry. "I'll go and turn the box
out. It'll stive you from buying, for we
shan't want two sets."
Itox In hund, Pumphlett left the room,
and the door closed behind him. Often
now, ns he drives the patient bullocks
in his paddy fields in India he sees that
luinp lil room In his fancy, with the boy
standing by the door.
(ilooniily enough be went to his alt-
ting-room and lit u candle, while he
opened the box, and turned the
bleached bones out with a rattle on tbe
The skull rolled toward the edge, and
he hastily placed his hund on it, and,
raising It up, gazed absently at It. Sud
denly his face grew green, while his
pupils rontructed nnd expanded ns he
watched with a horrible fascination the
shining bone. There, on the vortex,
were two deep cuts crossing each
"lly Sivngee!" he murmured Inllin
doostnnce. "My father was left for
dead by two such cutt.
".My father has a badly set left
Then, unwillingly, as If dragged by
an unseen power, he crept round the
table, and laid his hand mi one of the
arm bones. With a low cry of hor
ror he fell half fnitlng Into a chair.
"My father left us," he moaned, atlll
In the Iniigunge of his thoughts, "to
go on a pilgrimnge to give thanks for
his recovery. He never returned, and
now this curse Ferlnghl makes a by
word and reproach of Mm. May every
curse light on his head!"
Salaaming almost to the ground tie
fore the table, Pamphlett gathered
the ends of tbe tablecloth together,
so that they covered the grim relies,
and then, lifting up the burden rev
erently, be repluced It in the box.
Then, resting bis head on his hands,
be wept silent, awful aobs,
"Pamphlett! Pamphlet!" cried
KlierritT from below, "aren't you com
ing down? I've ordered In the cof
fee. Come on!"
Tbe man rose, once more salaamed
at the Ikix, now resting on a chair,
and then slowly went downstairs.
"Ily the way, where did you get
your bones. Did you buy them?"
"Well, It's too hud of me to spin a
ynrn ngalnst myself, but here goes.
About three years ngo, Just lirfore my
father hail decided to make me a doc
tor when I was old enough, I was
walking near the great trunk road
nenr Amritsar. Lying In the long
gram, nlmut 20 yards from the trnck,
I found a dead pilgrim, dried almost
to a mummy, lie might have been
there for years, for all I knew, as the
umlergrow th wns thick and tangled
and it wns no use making any in
quiries about him. Then, thinking
that Inter on I should require a skel
eton" Hod MirrrifT looked up at that mo
ment hn would have died then and
there, for Pamphlett was crouched In
his chair like a tiger almut to spring.
For a moment tbe extremity of hit
rage made tbe oriental forget his n li
the motion; but he recovered him
self and mi id. In guttural tones:
"lli. t tbe man was on a Isoly errand.

You've given me the creeps, Tarn

A month later Noel SherriS waa toss
ing restlessly on a bed of sickness. Ilia
pinched face and blue llpa told elo
quently enough of the severity of his
symptoms, and his nurse and bis doc
tor shook tbeir beads despondingly
over hie case.
But it waa Pamphlett who sat up at
night, and who hovered round the
aick bed by day, taking1 bia rest by
snatches when he could. It waa to
V amphlett that the aick boy turned
for amusement and for solace, and ao
far the native had not failed him.
One afternoon he beard strange
footsteps ascending' the stairs, and he
rose softly and went to tbe door. A
atout, red-faced man waa panting for
breath, on tbe landing.
"My name la Sumpter, surgeon to
the hospital for tropical diseases. Dr.
Jones asked me to aee young Sherriff,
aa he was not at all sure of the cause
of the illness which Is killing the lad."
The black eyes and the gray eyes
met in ardent couflicl, and the black
gave down before the gray.
"I'll Join you in the room below,"
said Sumpter, with a tightening of the
lips, "when" and be empbaaized tbe
word "I have finished my examina
tion." "It appears from the history that the
lad's symptoms began three weeks ago,
and he teems to think thnt some curry
he-ate waa fhe origin of hla troubles,
lie says that It didn't agree with him,
and I can quite believe that." (Dut
never a word spoke Pamphlett.) "A
curious thing I fou.id out, aud that was,
by an error on the cook's part, only
enough curry for one wss sent up. By
a little questioning I found out that
you and he tossed for it, and ourlously
enough, you lost, Mr. Pamphlett. Mow,
the only point on which I am in the
dark is: Did you give him powdered
glncs, finely-cut up, camel's hair or
bamboo chips, eh 7
The voice was so cold and yet so mer
ciless In Its directness that aullenly
enough the native surrendered.
"Camel's hair!" he said, between his
'And ti you've taken up with an Eng
lish bid who In the goodness of his
heart, makes a' friend of you, which not
one In a thousand would, and you poi
son him? Yon live together, work to
gether, and ypu poison him. I know
your race thoroughly. Few do, I admit,
but I do; and, by my father's aoul, there
un t another cur like you from one cud
of India to the other!"
Thoughtfully Fanipiilrtt etood aside
to let his mailer for such he felt him
already to be pass In; and atlll more
thoughtfully, he went to the appointed
place, nnd waited for lung minutes with
what pat ir nee be could muster. Pret-
ently the henvy trend warned him that
he moment for buttle had come, and he
brnced himself for the fray.
"Now, Mr. Pamphlett, tbe rate up
stairs is exceedingly Interesting to an
lil Anglo-Indian surgeon. The boy is
suffering from what we used to call
'xennna cholera.' "
The native Insensibly dropped Inlo
the attitude of appeal all natives as
sume when before the Europenn. Ilia
head was bent, and he stood with bis
hnndt crossed on his breast.
'O, my father nnd my mother!" he
began, In llindoostnnee, dropping at
once the European metaphor and as
suming the picturesque native Idiom,
the words of wisdom have Indeed full-
en from thy lips. It is given to the pro
tector ol the Kor to know the injiioat
thoughts of his servant, and foolish
would thy slave be to hide anything.

When In time he recovered he left us
with Ids blessing and went to a holy

laying himself down In the long grata
at the roadside, he went to bis gods in

the Inlldel on the spot; nut so vour
servant. He administered the poison to
satisfy tlx- spirit, wandering now a
homeless phnutoin until the sacred
rites sre fulfilled. It Is finished!"
Sumpter had said nothing, but Uie se
verity had gone from his fnt-e as he
listened to the passionate words.
"do!" he snid, nfler a pause; "take

goods and go to holy Ounges. Hum
