IMPORT TRADE TO CUFFER Increase In Amount of Duty Meant More Business for Large Concern but Hurts the Small Dealers, I have msde a discovery In the treatment of head noises and deafiieaa that does away with the necessity 'of passing; Instruments through the nostrils Into the ear tubes. Experience has abown me that the passage of the instruments into the ear tubes Is painful, and that the improvement to the hearing; resulting; from such measures lasts but a short time. The soreness caused by the passage of such instruments usually further Increases the' closure of these tubes. Feeling; how Important my discovery was, I felt It my duty to make public what I had learned. I know that thousands whose hearing; could be Improved have neglected their ear '' rather than undergo the pain that la caused by the passage of instruments Into their ear tubes, and on account of the soreness that remains after thaa operations. Among the first -upon whom I tested my method for head noises and deafness In New York was Mr. John M. Turner, a gentleman fifty-nine years of age. Mr. Turner lives at 2W Main Btreet, Lakewood, N. J , where he has resided since 1508. - The story he told me when I first saw him was that he had not beard well with- his left ear-Bince 1870.' He-raid that ha got along pretty well until his right ear began to fall. Since last April he could not understand what people Baid to him unless they spoke in a very loud tone of voice and right at him. He could not hear what the clergyman ' aid In church or what the speaker said in the Christian Kndeavor Meeting. He could not hear- in church even when he was In the front seat. He had noises in his ears, which were different in the two ears. In the -right ear there was a continual buzzing wound, -while in the left there would be sounds like the singing of the ta kettle. Then these sounds would change and become like the chirping of .crickets. He told ma that when ne was sitting at the table he could not understand what people said to hlra around the table, unless the speaker spoke in a very loud tone and talked right at him. Mr. Turner came up from Lakewood purposelv to be treated. He was a good patient. I put him under the ew method I have devined. and ha reports that his hearing is perfect again, his head noises are ail gone, and that he can hear better than he could since ha was thirty years of age. He reports he goes to church and can hear every word the preacher says. .. The case of Mr. Turner Is cited to snow bow under my method cases of di-afness and head noises in persons well advanced in years can often be greatly benefited. I mention, this case only to show what can be done by my method in many cases of head noises and deafness in persons well advanced in years. This Is who I am and what I nar flona' -! graduated in oietllcina in New. Tors In 1S79- I u tho rix winner ot my class.

The action of the Waltham Watch Company In raising prices to-day shows that the Watch Trust is talcing very prompt advantage or the favorable effect upon Its industry of the new tariff law, "which hai been la operation only six weeks. There, are several ways In which the new tariff benefits the Watch Trust. First, by a direct Increase of rates of duty on the cheaper grades of watch movements. Next, by a direct increase of the duty upon watch" dials; and then, indirectly, by provisions regarding the marking of movements, cases, and dials with the name of the manufacturer and the country of manufacture, the. effect a copy of the testimony taken 1 In the Fed w 1 saaa 1 s ssi 44?- e n r 1 - sta Aft fr1irtXMs G r T n . of which wtir be to restrict the trade which many . email Jewelers have had.
