There is only 0110 w ay to cure deafnesss

Deafness is caused by an inflamed con

flamed you have a rumbling sound of
imperfert hearing, and when it is en

taken out and this tube restored to its

Is a common exclamation at this
season. There is a certain bracing
effect in cold air which is lost when
the weather grows warmer ; and when
Nature is renewing her youth, her
admirers feel dull, sluggish and tired.
This condition is owing mainly to
the impure condition of the blood
and its failure to supply healthy
tissue to the various organs of the
body. It is remarkable how suscepti
ble the system is to the help to be
derived from a good medicine at this
season. Possessing just those puri
fying, building-up qualities which
the body craves, Hood's Sarsaparilla
soon overcomes that tired feeling
j restores the appetite, purifies the
I blood, and in short, imparts vigorous
j health. Its thousands of friends as

What is home without our mother?
'Tis our cottage robbed of flowers,
Where our broken, bleeding hearts
Will spend many lonely hours.

Oh, 'tis hard to bear the smart ;

Who is Captain Ryman? I have been
his jnuest for a day and a niht. His
beautiful home is on the heights. It
is embowed in shade and sur
rounded by flowers ilouers without
and flowers within lor at the beau
tiful table I found matrons and maid
ens and schosl girls, all ready to give
welcome to the stranger the Geor
gia cracker as they call me. It is a
large family, and reminded nie of
home, for as it is in all large fjmilies,
there is more freedom, more com
panionship, more talk more music
and more company.
Captain Ryman is a waterman. He
runs the line of packets or steam
boats from Nashville to Evansville,
350 miles. There are eight boats
and averages a round trip in a week
and so there is one to go and one to
come every day. There is nothing
strange or peculiar about that. The
captain's office is near the wharf and
1 concluded to visit the outgoing
steamer and see her outfit. Kvery
thing aboard was lively. I noticed a
sign over the cabin door and got
ready to thow away my cigar, for 1
supposed the sign said so, but it
didn't. It said "Trust in the Lord
anil Do Good." (in the inside and
over the same door, it said ; " The
Heavens Declare the Glory of God,"
and at the tar end of the cabin was
another line ot scripture, and all
about were gentle reminders that "in
Him we live and move and have our
"Is this a missionary boat," said I.
"Yes." said the captain, "ours are
all missionary boats. We have no
bats nor quick sands, no drinking
pilots or deckhands, no sw earing men
white or black, no gambling tables.
We may carry a tough sometimes but
we don't know it and don't throw
anybody overboard. Yes, you may
call them missionary boats ii you
choose, for they have converted some
sinners that I know and have im
proved the morals of boatmen all
along the line."
I learned from others that the cap
tain used to run his boat like every
body else, and whiskey and cards and
a good deal of swearing were con
sidered part of the furniture, but a
few years ago Sam Jones came along
and in one of his magnetic ser
mons shook the captain all up and
knocked out his props and put him
to thinking. He has a great big heart
and is full of sympathy for the poor
and unfortunate, and so suddenly
"came to himself," as the scriptures
say of the prodigal son, and broke up
his bar and forbade all gambling or
swearing on his boat, and he had all
the scripture put over the doors and
discharged every man who was un
willing to work on the new schedule.
It was hard on him for a while and
hard on his boat, but after a while he
whipped the fight, and then he
bought out some of the other boats
and now he controls all the boats
on the river, and there is no liquor or
cuss words on any of them, and it is
said said that this is the only line of
boats in the wide world that is run by
water and a Christian code of moral
ity. You can tell it from stem to
stern, from the pilot to the fireman,
from the waiters to the deck hands.
Everything is sober and everybody
polite and well mannered.
Captain Ryman then began to play
missionary all over the town and
started the great tabernacle move

Of course I met my old friend
Cunningham here. He pretends to
live here, but realiy lives everywhere
every where in the south where he
can find a dollar for the Confederate
Veteran, which he publish.es, or for
the Jeff Davis monument fund. He
knows more people, especially more
lonely women, in Tennessee than any
other man and he always has their
sympathy. He is the universal friend
and the great southern patriot. He
travels on free passes from the Poto
mac to the Grande and makes an ac
quaintance on every train and scatters
sample copies of The Veteran. It is
a beautiful monthly, and costs only
50 cents a year, and he is making it
a success. Cunningham will die hap
