DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 6 August 1898
DEAFNESS CANNOT BE 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 condition 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 destroyed forever ; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh , which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces . We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness ( caused by catarrh ) that cannot be cured by Hall s Catarrh Cure . Send for circulars , free . F . J . CHENEY &amp; CO ., Toledo , 0 .

A SPANISH WOMAN'S TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE ! [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 6 August 1898
A SPANISH WOMANS TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE ! THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SPAINS BRU . TALITY TO WOMEN AND ANGLOSAXON HUMANITY Among ail the incidents of the SpanishAmerican war , one of those which best illustrates the Spanish character is the story of a wealthy woman refugee driven from Santiago by the fear , of bombardment returning again to find her home and property pillaged and destroyed by soldiers of her own race and blood . Imagine , if you can , such an occurrence in an American or an English army ! Imagine any one of the hundred inhumanities which characterize the Spanish race being duplicated under the rule of an Anglo-Saxon nation ! Impossible ! No wonder so many frightened refugees look upon the American army as their deliverance from the hands of a brutal and inhuman mob . The way a nation treats its women is the mark of its standing among the world of nations , and shows in an instant its state of civilization or of savagery . THE AMERICAN SENTIMENT . Americans exalt their women...
Miscellaneous [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 6 August 1898
Miscellaneous Supplying the Sinews One of the greatest triumphs of the war which has been hidden from public observation has been the work of the several bureaus of the navy department in furnishing supplies and equipments for the troops , writes w . B . Curtis in the Chicago Record . As Secretary Long remarked in a recent interview , their duties have been quite as responsible and their services quite as valuable as those of the fleets in Cuban waters or the harbor of Manila . But for their foresight and executive ability the ships might have been helpless for the lack of fuel , ammunition and- food . The superiority of our naval organization and the ability of our bureau chiefs has been demonstrated in a striking manner . One of the most remarkable has been furnished by the bureau of equipment in the distribution of coal . No matter how frequently or suddenly the scene of naval activity is changed the vessels must have fuel , and it has been Commodore Bradford s business to see th...
Outwitted by a Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 6 August 1898
Outwitted by a Farmer It is told of ex-President Rutherford B . Hayes that while attending school at Kenyon college he was in the habit of taking daily walks into the country . These trips were shared by two intimate companions , who were of a funloving disposition which frequently got them into trouble . On one occasion they more than met their match in an old farmer , whom they met on the highway . The long white beard of the farmer gave him a patriarchal appearance , and while he was approaching the students they arranged to give him a jollying . One of them doffed his hat with great reverence and respect as he said , Good morning , Father Abraham ! The second saluted the old farmer and said , Good morning , Father Isaac ! Mr .. Hayes , not to be outdone in afcfability and politeness , extended his hand as he said , Good morning , Father Jacob ! Ignoring the outstretched hand of Mr . Hayes , the old farmer replied , Gentlemen , you are mistaken in the man . I am neither Abraham ,...
As to Fruit Diet [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 6 August 1898
As to Fruit Diet There is not a single article of diet of such great value in the treatment of intestinal , inactivity or constipation as fruits . For this purpose fruits must be eaten freely , being taken , as a rule , in cases of this sort , at the beginning of the meal or a little while before it . Fruit is most effective when taken by itself in this manner . Raw apples , steamed figs , peaches , apricots when not too ripe , prunes , oranges and tamarinds are of the greatest value for this purpose , tamarinds or pomegranates furnish an acid from which a very pleasant beverage may . be prepared . Tamarinds used in this way sometimes serve a useful purpose in cases of constipation . —Good Health . Bread is . worth two and ons-half times as much as potatoes , weight for weight , but this does not argue that we should confine ourselves to a diet of bread . Fruit , considered as a food , is not much more than flavored water , yet it is one of the best of foods .
