Troatmcnt Rives immediate relief—Treats only ' diseases of the Eye, Ear,-Nose or Throat. For eons of ages it has been handed down to posterity that deaf mutes, from heritage, from sickness or from othe causes would be deal' mutes always But science aud study of the hurnai 'anatomy, more particularly the head have developed methods for restoring those senses to the afflicted. The methods that I am using are the result of a condition, not a theory. Thi. facts are that I 'was treating diseases of the eye-and ear and in the latter case like many others of the most scholarlj and advanced men In medicine, I was In many cases completely in the dark until the atUlction. of deafness. came 'upon rue aiid I was confronted with the time worn proposition, "phj'slclan, heal thyself." • My hearing had gotten so bad that my door bell would ring and I would not hear !t. My wife would speak to me and I would not respond. Her continued allusions to the fact that I was getting deaf annoyed me and I soon discovered that I was In reality rapidly losing my hearing. All the methods of treatment that a'knowledge of medicine and science gathered by 13 years of actual and continued practice had been -exhausted, I obtained no relief. In my desperation I called upon the best ear specialists in Chicago and received no encouragement. I went to New York and met with the same fate In the east- era metropolis. ' You can readily see the conditions* that stared me In the face, I tvns treat- Ing deafness and proposing to give relief to others but could not.relieve my-" self. I felt that my profession was degenerating and that science had run up against n snag. I must either hunt a new profession or put myself In shape to follow my chosen one. I decided to go to Heldelburff, Berlin nnd Paris If necessary. I. visited all the prlnclpaJ ' hospitals' In Europe and consulted the most scientific men abroad and returned with no relief. On my return to America, I conceived the idea of going into a medical college In New York and ex- aminlug the heads of subjects in an effort to discover what my ailments were. Suiting action to the thought I called on the professor of a New York college and made arrangements with him to buy the heads of all the subjects for the next 30 days, engaged a table In the operating room and there began the study of my own profession, I labored for six weeks incessantly, many times working night "as well as day. Finally the head of a deaf mute was brought to me one morning and It was In dissecting this subject that-I dlscov- bred the heretofore hidden knowledge which opened up an avenue through which deafness could be cured. It was there in the confines of the dissecting room I, almost deaf as a hat, rejoiced at having learned, that my own case as well as that of oo per cent, of the deaf people of'the country could be relieved and .their hearing hestored. I Immediately began the study of Instru- mnts and.succeeded in perfecting several which. In-later years ; have been of great ser.vl.ee to me and have done yeoman service to/sufferlng humanity. • Dr. Walter then.detalled,to the reporter his success since' the discovery and told of numberless dea'f mutes that had been made to hear and taught tojalk ill of which stories are corroborated'by testimonials -'tta near Logansport .-as Anderson and Frankfort. ^ . Ninety Per. Cent, of Deafness Can be Cured. He Immediately resumed hls.'prac- Ice, advertised the discovery, ancl met with signal success. He.-rtslted the deaf ind dumb colleges and there obtained deaf mute subject* to treat. This' was • • . Jess than 3 years 100 Deaf Mutes UKO «'ul since that Made to period over 100 deal!

It is no conji'ctnre,Tio untried theory, but a statement that is confirmed daily by people who visit my rooms sufferers, and depart therefrom with a new life aud restored health insured by their improved condition after one treatment. By ob- The Cause serration In every of day practice T have Deafness. discovered that sev- Relief in an Instant. enty-five percent, of the' deafness of the present generation is traced directly. to catarrh in some form. -I have relieved with one treatment aud permanently cured In from one to four weeks cases of years' standing. I make no exception no matter how stubborn or deep seated the case of catarrh In the young or the aged, I can. cure it. . . Suppressed Catarrh. •Many business men who art aflllctcd with nauseous nasal secretions in the morning will obtain, in nine out of ten cases, instant relief with ONE TREATMENT. The mildest case of catarrh is an enmy to health,.physical endurance and happiness. Suprossed catarrh may produce inflammation of the lungs, brain or eyes or give rise to rheumatism, nervous disorders, weeping, moaning, tremors a-nfl convulsions, drowsiness, chilliness, starting, twitching, palpitation of the'heart, etc. When the frontal slnures above the eyes, posterior and anterior nasal passages become clogged up, and the antrim or cavity of the cheek bone- becomes filled or partly (jllc-d, It often prodces a pressure of the nerves which supply these parts and pain like the most cxcriiela.tlug'neiiral- gla is the result. The disease follows the mucous membrane through the custnchian. tubes to all parts of the same membranes of the ear causing hypertrophy of the drum, Interferes with the function of the -glands of Wharton, which secrete the wax; a dryness follows, hardness of hearing, roaring, buzzing, singing, whistling, cracking, the ringing of bells and similar noises, which vary, and which are simple effects and when the cause is removed the effects cease. The hardnesd of hearing Increase with cnch additional cold. Hundreds of pooplain every community are sufferers from suppressed catarrh, their physicians fail to rsaoh the case or to bring relief In many-cases the disease becomes so deep rooted that life is burdensome, wort of any kind distasteful, business in consequence Is neglected, living Is not what It used to be, a distaste for home pleasures and fireside pastimes follows, the prattle of your own children Is annoying, brooding over' the disease, In many cases mistaken for premature old age with Its attendant nflrmltlos, oftentimes wrecks the business of men and the happiness of their lousehold. It has been uiy good Cured in fortune to have dls- Four covered a method Weeks. for the cure of this and far between.

Mrs. Belle Harding, Elwood, lud., was partially blind for several years with a growth over her eyes. Several oculists were consulted but would not uudcrtakc to remove them. She called on Dr. Waller.

"Certainly," returned Mr. Smith, gal- l.intly, and the young woman, whom be thought he recognized, rode proudly awa.v. She did not stop, however, at the next corner, but kept on to the third. Mr. Smith commenced to get excited nnd watched anxiously for the bloomer g-irl to turn around at the third corner nnd bring: back his nice, new wheel. But she didn't turn. Instead, she kept right on and he stood in the middle of the road and watched his bicycle fadeaway. Then a pursuit bog-nn. John Lyons, of L. P. Cycle club and J.
