OPINION NOT ALWAYS FINAL
Pretty Safe to Say That Doctor's
Diagnosis Was "Away Off"
In This Case.
The pretty daughter of a physician
Is engaged to a college student of
whom her father does not altogether
approve. His daughter is too young
.to think of' marriage, the doctor as
serts; the college student is too
young to think of it, likewise. It is
out of the question.
She explained all this to her lover
the other night.
"Father says," she summed it up;
"father says, dear, that I will have to
give you up."
The young man sighed. ."Then It's
-all over?" he murmured, with gloomy
?interrogation. And the girl laughed

he was getting a trifle fowery and to

Mr. Grant shook his head.

WICKED STOCKING STILETTO h
Woman's Dagger Carried in the Gar- b
ter Much as the Highlander
Wears His Dirk. il
Chicago.-A fashion note from Lon- c
don tells us that, as woman's weapon,
the hatpin is to be superseded by a
stiletto held in the garter. Fashion
does not date her decrees from Lon
don, and we may, therefore, be per
mitted to doubt the authenticity of
the item. The picture shows how a
stiletto is worn in the garter-a cus
tom followed, perhaps, in Imitation
of that of the women of Lombardy
during the Austrian occupation. Be
ware, then, lest calf love turn to calf
There are several reasons why the
hatpin will never give way to a stilet
to held in the place mentioned. For
readiness, accessibility, and cheap
ness the hatpin exceeds all other
weapons to woman's hand. It is un
sheathed by a single upward move

Intly, "he actually called you a 'jack tl

Jack Farrows burst into a hearty o
ugh. "That's what a poor fellow gets m
ir not being lucky enough to possess c
millionaire uncle, or a friend to put ii
Im wise on the stock exchange," he ji
id merrily. Then more seriously he t
Ided: "I would make good though, if b
1ly I could get the chance. Could I s,

"There's only one way you can do s

L11y. "Papa always takes a liking to a
ie person who can get the best of t

y succeed in that would be to get k

he had also expected her father to

Farrows entered the room, smiling

"Humph!" grunted Mr. Vane, with

Farrows looked embarrassed for an

Jack laughed heartily. i

After Jack left Edna went to her

PAINFUL FINGER NAILS CURED
"I have suffered from the same trou
ble (painful finger nails) at different
periods of my life. The first time of
its occurrence, perhaps twenty-five
years ago, after trying home remedies
without getting helped, I asked my
doctor to prescribe for me, but it was
not for a year or more that my nails
and fingers were well. The inflamma
tion and suppuration began at the
base of the finger nail. Sometimes It
was so painful that I had to use a
poultice to induce suppuration. After
the pus was discharged the swelling
would go down until the next period
of inflammation, -possibly not more
than a week or two afterwards. These
frequent inflammations resulted in the
loss of the nail. I had sometimes as
many as three fingers in this state at

again to suffer from the same trouble.
Again I tried various remedies, among
them a prescription from a doctor of

help somewhat for a time, but it was
not a permanent cure; next tried a
prescription from my own doctor, bu+

the Soap exclusively, but I rubbed the
