COMMON SENSE CURE- la " il, FOR SWEH11I FEET 1 An Easy-Jo-Bc-Had Reniciiy for This Rather Distress tog, Trouble. 1 Thero arc two things which you can do to obtain prompt relief. The. first is, batho thd feet every night with puro soap, using hot:water, as hot as bearable; but at. UrV ond of the bath, dash cold vater upon them. This latter tightens up the pores and strengthens the skin's' vl- 1 iTilty. Wipe tho skin dry by means of very vigorous rubbing Thor oughly pick and scrape J away all the dead, loose skin which has found lodgment between the toes. Oftentimes thero will be 'a great mass of this dead, loose- skin be tween the toes, and It Is absolutely Important that the Inner toe sur face bo kept as clean and vigorous as the skin of your hands; Also, keep the toenails well manicured. Just before climbing Into bed, jmop upon the soles of your feet a I solution malo of pure alcohol, into one pint of which is dissolved one half an ounce of tho powder of sal icylic acid. " Every evening, on re turning home from your day's work, you should shift Into dry stockings and a dry pair of shoes. It will aid you greatly to bathe your feet at this time also, accord ing to the above regime; and, If you have tho necessary time, you can even mop the salicylic solution our feet at thU.tlmo also, in Add rsroi ddltlon to tho bedtime treatment. ou will, however, " have to wipe the salicylic solution off your feet "before putting on your' stockings and shoes; but, remember this, do not wipe off the salicylic solution before climbing Into bed. Let It tlry on the feet. Don't be afraid to briskly rub the skin of the feet after ercli bath. It serves to Increase flie skin vigor and to purify the sweat glands. The second thing Is, rise up on , your toes fifty times after each Tfcopt bath. Rise as high as you can, keeping tho Inner bono of the knee on a straight plumb line with the inner bone of the ankle and tho "big toe. Then rlee up on your heels fifty times. These two oxerclses "bring into play two sets c muscles, Btlf-up a bettor clreulatiorof blood In the body of your feet and have a cleansing, strengthening tffect gen erally. If your feet begin to- sweat after these two exercises, dash them sud denly Into a basin of cold water, Just for tho shock and the invlgora tlon. These simple lines of home 'treatment will euro sweating, odor ous feet, If persisted in faithfully for at least two weeks. Try it and see.' You'll wonder why you did not adopt some such simple meth od long. ago.

I 'I I 'i-H-H-H-I-H- Scott sat on the step of the gulldlinll and fanned - himself with hi lint, ihrough the open door came tho sound of femlniiio voices, animated and onger. Tho young man's eyes scanned the landscape with something of wist fulness in their depths. Ho had noticed one or two pretty girls In the throng of oldor women who were engineering the church supper, but apparently the.v wore nil too busy for conversational advances, lie reflected with n sense of Injury that his visit was opening tamely. "Chester!" It was his aunt's brisk voice, nnd Scott rose with alacrity. En ergetic Aunt Anne liked tp see people busy. In her summons he read a prom ise of occupation and welcomed It re gardless of its nature. Nor was he destined to be disappointed. " "This Is my nephew, Mr. Scott." said Aunt Anne, addressing a group of la dies, who acknowledged the Introduc tion by a collective smile. "And he'll be delighted to do any little errands for us," she added generously. "Now. Mrs. Anderson, tell him about your spoons." Mrs. Anderson beamed gratefully on tho young man. "I'm sure It's awfully kind of you. Mr. Scott. You see. we're short of spoons, and I want to send you for iiilne. Do you know Fayette street? Yes, it crosses Main nt right angles, and my house is a yellow cottage on the right, with woodbine over the porch. You'll And the key under the mat. Go straight through the hall Into tho dining room, and the spoons nre In the loft hand drawer of the side board. It's Just lovely of you to help us out. Mr. Scott." The other ladles murmured nsont, nnd one or two of the younger Hashed appreciative rlniices in his direction Scott's spirits rose. He promised a speedy return and started ou li's er rand, reflci'tliiif ns lie went on the re freshing confidence of it community which left Its keys under the dcor mats and permitted strangers to linvp access to Its homes. He had no dllllculty In finding the yellow cottage, and the key was In IK place. He made Ills way through the silent IinII Into the dining room, and hero he eu ountered his Urst check The spoons were not In the drawers of the sideboard. In fact, they were not in the sideboard at, all. though he ran sacked ll thoroughly to make sure. Opening the closet "door, he was re warded b.V the sight of a well stocked silver chest, and he possessed himself of the spoons, promising himself n Inugli nt the expense of the owuer of the silver, whuse uiemoiy was so mire liable. "Hold up your bunds!" The inquest came In tones whose de termination could not be mistaken, mid Scott spun on Ills heel to And hlmseir facing a revolver. Hack of the revolver was n girl, She was n rather tall girl with very white clieeks and absurdly long lashes. She vore a gurileii hat. beneath which little tendril-like cutis festooned themselves about her fore head. Under other circumstances Scott would Imvo voted her charming. "Hold up your hands!" said the ghi auulu. And Scott obeyed, reflecting dint It was better to humor her llrst ;iud explain afterward. The spoons In his pocket seemed to weigh a ton. lie Celt hot uud ridiculous." "Your mother asked me" he begun The girl interrupted him. "I have uo mother. Your excuses will oniy iiinku a bad matter worse." Scott bit Ills lip. Absurd as the situ ation was, it hud n serious side. He spoke with as much dignity as wn consistent with standing before a lieiiu tlful girl with Ids bunds ou u level with his ears. "I was requested to come here by tint huly of the hoifte." lie in sisted. "Oh. Indeed! Then perhaps you will tell mo her tin me." Scott racked his bralu. In the dis traction of that general Introduction Mrs. Anderson's name hud failed to Imprint Itself on hts memory. don't 'know her nauie. he ac knowledged, "hut she Is n dark haired w'omau. about forty-live, I should say, with ti "good deal of color." He would have gone further with his descrip tion, but the young woman cheeked Uiin by ii gesture not to lie misunder stood. "I piefer to know no more of your preposterous (let Ion," she said wither Ingly. "Evidently you ure not as shrewd us you think yourself. It hap pens that I am the lady of this house. and 1 am going to keep you right here until my uncle comes." Scott cursed his folly. Doubtless there wero yellow cottages on every block and all tho neighborhood kept Its keys under the door mat. Ho tried to nay something about a mistake, but he would not listen. Keeping her eye upon blm. she seated herself deliber ately. "Please do not move," she said, "or I shall be compelled to.sboot, and that would be very disagreeable for rae and considerably worse for you," la the position be was compelled to imne Scott had au excellent oppor fttatfy for studying his captor. She traa eertalaly a resaarkawy pretty tM. Tb itori detemlaattea at her ill I J i i ill n n r eyes could not hide their depth and luster. The pallor of her cheeks failed to disguise, their exquisite curves. The hand that held tho revolver was n very shapely one. It pained him to notice that tho girl wns gradually growing nervous. Her hand trembled. Her bosom rose and fell as If sobs wero struggling to escape. Once or twice her eyes seemed almost to waver be fore his own. "Stop looking n( me like that!" she suddenly commanded. "I beg your pardon," said Scott hum bly and looked nt tho floor. Now that he no longer had her fnCe to distract him he realized that tlie unaccustomed position of his arms was n most un comfortable one. A twinge of pain contracted his face, and he sighed. "Does It hurt?" asked the holder of the revolver, with n grim pleasure In tho situation. "It does," Scott acknowledged feel ingly. "On tho whole," observed the girl, "it is probably less painful thnn n term In the penitentiary." "I have no doubt that you are right." ScoU agreed politely. silence fell between them nfter this. They wero still for so long that n little mouso crept out of the closet and scuttled like n fleck of gray cloud across the room. The girl cried out and dropped the revolver. "Allow me." said Scott, nnd ho picked It up nnd re turned It to her. Then he again raised his hands. A becoming flush routed the girl's pallor. "I guess you needn't do that any longer," she said. "And perhaps you would be more comfortable If you sat down." "Thank you," Scott said gratefully and dropped Into a chair, rubbing ills nclilug arms with unfeigned relief After a minute or two he was shock ed to discover that the girl was In tears. "I don't see." she sobbed, "why nny ono who can be as courteous ns you and ns considerate should ever have taken up burglary." "My denr girl." cried Scott. "I'm no more a burglar than you nre. I am a gentleman, ns you ought to begin to realize by this time. Miss Anne llags by is my aunt, nnd I stopped off here this morning on my wny east to pav her a few days' visit. There is to be a supper at the guildhall. In which she Is Interested, and ns they were short of spoons one of the women sent mo nfter hers." "It couldn't have been" the girl be gan, and then she stopped. There wns a sound of footsteps In the hall. A well built, middle aged man came Into the dining room with n cheerful "Well, Amy." nnd then stopped stock still In surprise. With a dexterous movement the glr! had pulled the folds of her dress over the revolver. "Undo Charlie." she fal tered, "this is a friend of mine, a nephew of Miss Anne Hngsby." The middle nged man advanced cor dially. "I'm very glad to meet you. Mr." He threw a reproachful glance at the girl, blushing In the background. Scott sqlzed his outstretched hand. "Scott Chester Scott. My aunt is in terested In a church supper which Is to take place this evening, and as they were short of spoons she sent me out to borrow some. Miss Amy has kindly consented to lepd me two doren nnd to give me her company at the supper." "Oh. Indeed! Well. I shaM hope to see j on again. Mr. Scott. -Are you staying long?" asked the middle aged man, quite unconscious of a dramatlc dlsphty of Indignation behind his back. "1 may slay sometime, I'm not quite sure." said Scott cautiously. "And now. Miss Amy. I'm nfruid If we don't start nt once they'll send out a searching party for us." When they were outside she handed him the revolver. "You have the spoons, and you might us well have this, too." she said dellantly. "And If you turn out' to be n Rallies sort of person I'm disgraced." He laughed at her tenderly. "You know you believe In me." he declared, "without nny more explanations."- And something In ills glance struck sparks from hers. Aunt Anne wns watching for him on the guildhall steps. "Chester Scott, where have you been so long with, those spoons?" Then, recoguhlug his coin anion.' she stared helplessly. "Why Amy Tray nor!" "Miss Trnynor and 1 nre going for n dtlle walk." said her nephew, "lull we'll be buck with good appetites foi supper. Here are some spoons whirl Miss Traynor has kindly lent." He handed them over, and the pall moved ou. Mrs. Anderson laughed ai her friend's bewildered air. "So that was tlie attraction." slit said. , "I didn't even know that Chester wiu .icquainted with her." sighed Aunt Mine. "I was Inking all the credit of 'lis coming to myself." Mrs Anderson laughed again. "1 I'liess It's n settled thing nil tight." she -aid. "Judging from the wny he lookity '.t her and the way she blushed at hlio Well.
