Not only the city, but the entire and practically all of Canada, will be platnd radelftly before' the of the as the country that "came Back." Tie en- tire west will seeth with excitement following the next strike. The labors, of the-men who had faith in their those who began years ago, and who gamb- led every dollar they owned that Al- berta could produce oil, have been rewarded, for the development car- ried on by themHas passed the spec- ulative stage With the strike at the Dlngman well came delirium, arid people Invested like mad Many of them will never realise on their in- vestments, .but the fact that oil In such a pure state Is; In evidence In- dicates that the crude otl hidden somewhere in the bosom of the earth.

The oil companies are forming fast In Calgary that it is hardly with- n an ordinary man's ability to keep count. The provincial i registrar of companies was m Calgary on Monday and his inspection proved that all the companies are doing real business. Not one ot the many is operating 71tuDut a. charter, so that the public has reasonable assurance that they are bona nde. There is com- pany in the world that can' guarantee o strike oil, but all can guarantee to spend the money in that endeavor, and that is all the people ask. The market on all shares are similar to those in Lethbrldge, and are created on the spot. One nfm will quote one price, and the one next door may be 10 per cent, lower or higher.

Recent have proved con- clusively that catarrhal.deafness, head were the direct cause ot constitutional disease, .and that salves, sprays, Inhalers, etc., merely tempor-, lie with the complaint, and seldom, It. ever, effect a permanent cure. ''This being so, much time aid money has' been spent of late by a noted special- ist In perfecting, a pure, gentle, yet effective tonic that would quickly dis- pel all traces of, the catarrhal poison from the system. The effective pre- scription which was eventually form- ulated, and which has aroused the be-' lief that deafness will soon be extinct, Is given below in understandable form so" that anyone can treat themselves In their own home at little expense.
