DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 20 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 , O .

A Seaweed Tail [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 20 August 1898
A Seaweed Tail A duck with a tail of growing seaweed in place of feathers is the latest local freak , says the San Francisco Chronicle . Close examination shows that on each of the main stems of the tail feathers instead of the natural barbs are pieces of the fine , slimy , dark-green seaweed commonly seen clinging to rocks along the coast . A professor of natural history says that when they are a few weeks old all birds of this species have delicate feathers , the main stems of which have minute cracks in them . The supposition is that the young bird must have taken refuge in a rock where the seaweed was thick and that the seed of the seaweed lodged in the small holes in the stems of the feathers and there fertilized and grew to the exclusion of the regular feathery growth . The grape vine needs a large amount of potash . This is why wood ashes are so valuable for them . Soap suds contain a considerable amount of potash entirely dissolved and in shape for immediate use , and grape ...
