BATTLE WITH BURGLARS.
Station Agent Chase and Two Com
panions Had an Exciting Time
F. X. Chase, station agent at Par
sons, had an exciting battle with bur
glars at the station early yesterday
morning. Mr. Chase lives a short dis
tance from the station, and the build
ings are connected by a burglar alarm.
Karly yesterday morning Hie ringing
of tills alarm woke him up. and dress
ing he aroused two of his neighbors
who accompanied him to the station.
All were armed with shot guns.
An examination of Hie station
showed that two men were in the
building and Chase and his aids deter
mined to capture them. A noise was
made and the burglars alarmed, made
their exit by way of a. window.
I'pon gaining the platform they were
told to surrender, but the thieves drew
their revolvers and fired several shots
at Chase and his two comrades, who
returned the Ore with their shot guns
at close range. Yells of rage ami
groans of pain followed the volley from
the shot guns, but botli men succeeded
iu tho excitement that followed in
making good their escape. Chase and
his companions are positive that at
least one of the burglars was wounded.
The thieves were at work upon the
freight and express matter when sur
prised by Chase. The burglars, in their
haste to escape, took nothing with
theiu, but left several article's as sou
venirs for Hie agent.
Kadi burglar left a new umbrella,
two bags to carry away their plunder
and a pint bottle containing a small
((tmntliy of whiskey.
Martin Crippen, detective for Hie
Delaware and Hudson, was notified and
is now working upon tho case.

WHAT CAUSES DEAFNESS
Tht Principal Gaut Is Ourabli but Qtnarally Of arlooked.
Many things may
deafness, and very often
difficult to trace a cause.
people inherit deafness.
diseases like scarlet rever some
times cause deafness. But by far the
most common cause of loss of hearing
is catarrh of the head and throat.
A prominent specialist on ear troubles
irives as his opinion that nine out of ten cases
of deafness is traced to throat trouble; this is probably overstated but it is certainly
true that more than half of all cases of poor hearing were caused by catarrh.
The catarrhal secretion in the lungs and throat finds its way into the Eustachian
tube and by clogging it- up very soon affects the hearing and the hardening of the se
cretion makes the loss of hearing permanent, unless the catarrh which caused the
trouble is cured.
Those who are hard of hearing may think this a little far fetqhed, but any one at
all obsexvant must have noticed how a hard cold in the head will affect the hearing
and that catarrh if long neglected will certainly impair the sense of hearing ana
ultimately cause deafness.
If the nose and throat are kept clear and free from the unhealthy secretions
of catarrh, the hearing will at once greatly improve and anyone suffering from deaf
ness and catarrh can satisfy themselves on this point by using a fifty cent box of
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, a new catarrh cure, which in the past year has won the ap
proval of thousands of catarrh sufferers as well as physicians, because it is in conven
met form to use, contains no cocaine or opiate and is as safe and pleasant for children
as for their elders.
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets is a wholesome combination of Blood root, Gnaiacol, Eucaluptol and
similar antiseptics and they cure catarrh and catarrhal deafness by action upon the blood and
raucous membrane of the nose and throat.
As one physician aptly expresses it; "You do not have to draw upon the imagination to dis
cover whether you are getting benefit from Stuart's Catarrh Tablets; improvement and relief are
apparent from the first tablet taken.
All druggists sell and recommend them. They cost but fifty cents for full sized package and
any catarrh sufferer who has wasted time and money on sprays, salves and powders will appreciate
to the lull the merit ot Stuart's
