Corns can easily be lifted out

This Is a sticky substance which
dries In a moment. It Just shrivels
up the corn without inflaming or
even irritating the surrounding
tissue or skin. Cut this out and

BROOKLYK MIDDLE
CUSSES ORGANIZE
Certificate of Incorporation
Granted By Supreme
Court Judge.
KIW YORK. rtb. ? ?Waary of
being loawd about In tha maelstrom
produced by the stirrings of capital j
on tha on* hand and labor on tha 1
other, a "middle claae union" has been
formed by aome Brooklyn cltliena and
wait today (ranted a certificate of In
corporation by Hupreme Court Justice
Kelby.
The Incorporators hope to see the
"middle class union" crow through
accession of members Into an organ
isation which will be able to protect
the vast majority of the country's
population who belong neither to the
capitalist class nor to labor organ
izations.
Organisations of similar character
In Kngland have been reported as
working effectively In preventing
profiteering and the extravagances of
both labor and capital, and In hold
ing down the cost of living.
The Incorporators of the '"middle
class union" who will be Its first di
rectors were: Wijmot L.. Morehouse,
lawyer; Joseph Wolff, lawyer: Na
than I'"rledman. silk dealer: Herman
U. Mendelssohn, merchant, and Gid
eon F. Hall, machinist.
"Any person who considers himself
a member of the 'middle class' may
become a member," sald#Wolff today.
"By 'middle class' we mean that part
of the Intelligent, unorganised Indi
viduals who are neither labor union
ist*. politicians, nor capitalists.
"This body of people Is the most
powerful in the United States. Its
immense power is now dormant and
it lacks the force of concerted ac
tion. Unless it begins to fight for
Its existence It will be routed out."
The work of organization will soon
be started" through headquarters to
be established, according to the
founders, and the cost of living will
be one of the first problems the new
union will tackle.
