The borough election resulted
In a clean sweep for the Republi
can ticket with tho exception of
John K. Seltz for town councilman.
Tho victory was due to tho fact that
George Penwardon, Independent
Republican, running on nomination
papers, had tho support of the down
town Domocrats, who, In splitting
their tlcketB to voto for him, failed
to give the balanco of their own
ticket proper support, then causing
the defeat of Charles McCarty for
town councilman and R. M. Stocker
and Wm. T. Moore for school di

History of thu Dime.
That neat and lovable little coin,
the dime, nun had a most useful his
tory. As fur as we are aware It Is
unique among the world's coins, hav
ing no nearer equivalent than the
English sixpence, which Is worth two
cents more. It is one of the handiest
of coins, being about as small as a
silver piece can conveniently be. Be
ing less in alxe and weight than the
nickel, which la worth only half as
much, It Is vastly more convenient to
keep and honrd, and that Is ono rea
son why It Is becoming extraordi
nary scarce In spite of the fact that
more dimes are now turned out of
the mints than over before In the
country's history. There la a rago for
"dime banks," and some of these
mechanical contrivances are so pret
ty, so Ingenious and so alluring that
they force people to save dimes who
have no earthly occasion to do so.

DEAFNESS CANNOT HE CURED
by local applications, as they can
not reach the diseased portion of the
ear. There is only one way to cure
deafness, and that Is by constitu
tional remedies. Deafness is caus
ed by an Inflamed condition of the
mucous lining of the Eustachian
Tube. When this tube Is Inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or Im
perfect hearing, and when It is en
tirely elosed. Deafness Is the result,
and unless the Inflammation can be
taken out und this tube restored to
its normal condition, bearing will
be destroyed forever; nine cases out
of ten are caused by Catarrh, which
is nothing but an inflamed condition
of the mucous surfaces.
