corns upon her toe; and every time
she put on 'Gets-It', the corn was sure
to go." Mary, like thousands of oth
sto Mery an v Ebarrassm t Le

It" that the corn or callus is going
away. For corns, calluses, warts and

Ing papers publish a special wireless
dispatch from New York to the semi
official Wolff bureau, stating that pub
lic opinion in America is greatly stir

German attacks on American neutrali

"It was to be expected that at the
convening of congress the British
party would make every effort to
bring about a new excitement against I
Germany, in order to distract the at
tention of congress from the question I
of British pressure on America. This
is also President Wilson's interest.
And beyond this, it lies in the nature
of the American that only uncondi- I
