NOTE.-There is no known cure for total deafness. Many eminent physicians, notably Drs. Cooper and Clelland, in England; Itard, Meniere and Deleau, in France; Hendriskz and Guyot, in Hollaud, and Hymly, in Germany, have made extraordinary efforts to cure the deaf, but without success. The canses of deafness are numerous, and the man who pretends to cure the affliction, by any single method of treatment, is a quack. We do not wish to discourage parents in their efforts to restore the sense of hearing, but they should not torture their children, and waste their money in attempting cures after the fact of deafness is established.
