This new drag Is an ether compound
discovered by a Cincinnati chemist. It
Is called freezone, and can
now bo obtained1 In tiny
bottles as here shown at
very little cost from any
drug store. Just ask for
freezone. Apply a drop or

Shortly you will find the
corn or callus so loose that
you can lift It off, root
and all, with the fingers.
Not a twinge of pain,
soreness or Irritation; not
even the slightest smart
ing, cither when applying
freezone or afterwards.
This drug doesn't eat up
the corn or callus, but
shrivels them so they loos

Is no humbug 1 It works
like a charm. For a few
cents you can get rid of ev
ery hard corn, soft corn or
corn between the toes, as well as pain
ful calluses on bottom of your feet. It
never disappoints and never burns,
bites or inflames. If your druggist
hasn't any freezone yet, tell him to
get a little bottle for you from his

Palace of Bourbon Kings of
Naples Is Put to Use.
There Mutilated Soldiers of Italy Are
Housed and Taught Some Means
of Self-Support.
The war has turned the pnlaeo of
the Bourbon kings of Naples into a
home for mutilated soldiers. Around
the exquisite marble tuble where the
guests of the "Itol Soiell" of Naples
dined In the garden on hot summer
nights the ladies In powdered head
dress and panier skirts, the men with
lace at their sleeves and embroidered
coats today are gathered the pitiable
fragments of humanity that war has
left In its wake. There are neither
candles nor massive sjlver, neither
sweetmeats 'nor rare wines. The Ital
ian government allows 70 cents pet
day for their lodging and mainten
ance, and food is high In Naples.
The marble table on warm days In
the gardens Is the recreation center of
the inutlluted, In their worn and faded
uniforms. Before each Is nn oblong
curdboard placard, some of whose
spuces are numbered. One of the men
(he must be one of those who have
lost a leg, for the one-armed cannot
do the trick) shakes a basket-bottle
and turns out a numbered counter,
In the sing-song Neapolitan dialect, he
cries the number. The one whose
placard bears It, covers the space
with a bit of glass. Whoever covers
all his spaces first wins a cent from
each of the others.
Those who have no hands at all
have grown wondrously skillful at flip
ping their bits of glass onto the
placard by means of a bent pin stuck
In the empty sleeve.
This is recreation. There are also
hours of work. Once sumptuous
chnmbers of the royal palace have
been turned Into schoolrooms, In the
month that the hospital has been run
ning. In one, those who wish are
taught tailoring, In another shoemnk-
Ing the legless naturally, for one
must have two hands to make shoes
and clothes. Those who have lost
an arm are taught telegraphy or type
writing. But many of the latter must
begin farther back than that, nrtd
learn to read and write first. For
rending and writing in southern Italy
ore not common accomplishments, so
there Is a schoolroom a primary
schoolroom, where the alphabet and
multiplication table figures on the
blackboard In front of these grown
children who have known only to give
an arm or a leg to their country. And
nn arm or a leg to these simple peas
ants Is livelihood their own and their
Which Is why some do not study.
They are suspicious. Mutilated, they
are entitled to a government pen
sion, nnd they are afraid that when
they have learned a new trade by
which they can live, the government
will say: "You no longer need help
make your owq living." So they sit
all day In the sunlit, royal garden,
with Its faience flowerpots marked
with fleur de lys, and watch the chang
ing lights on the bay of Naples, and
think of what life used to' hold for
them before the war came to change
It utterly.
Popular Superstitions.
The loss of nn engagement ring is
considered by many to be the climax
of ill luck and equivalent to a super
natural sign forbidding the girl ta
mnrry the mnn who gave the ring.
It is comm6nly considered unlucky
for a girl to marry a man whose sur
name begins with the same letter as
her own. The old couplet says:
"Change the name but not the letter,
mnrry for worse and not for better."
The superstitious girl does not
watch her sweetheart out of sight, as
this portends that the meeting will be
the last one.
If a girl has several admirers and
wishes to know which she loves the
best she. plucks a rose and names each
petal after an admirer. Then the
petals are thrown Into a stream, nnd
the one which dlsoppears last is the
favored suitor.
Monarchies and Nobility.
Monarchy Is unfavorable to the
growth of an hereditary nobility. A
king's policy must be to weaken the
nobles lest some day they should be
come his rlvnls. In the reign of the
English king, Henry III, Simon de
Montfort and other militant noblemen
fought the monarch and, on one occa
sion, took him prisoner. Even an ab
solute monarchy, while it gives the
"nobles" political status, denudes them
of political power.
It's an III Wind, Etc.
"Turned you down, did you sayl
Well, old chop, it's better to have
loved and lost than never to have
loved at all."
"Yes, better, Indeed," replied the re
jected one. "Better for the post office
authorities, the florists, the messenger
boy, the confectioner, a dozen wait
ers, twice as many taxi drivers, the
jeweler nnd half the theaters in
town !" New York Times.
Just Happened So.
"Mrs. Olithers used to be a soulful
"Still, she had common sense enough
to marry a good provider,"
"Well, yes. The match turned out
all right, but I wouldn't give her too
much credit for that. She never would
have fallen in love with GUthers if hi
hadn't been a star footbaU player."

There is a flavor of days gone by,
along with distinctly new and Ingen
ious designing In this two-piece frock
of crepe meteor. The old-fashioned
reticule is recalled by the finish of the
sash ends and the fine, knife-plaltod
frills seem nn echo from the past.
Happy the artist who can add re
membered charms by by-gone days,
along with others that are new and
original, to the gown of today. This
frock Is Interesting because It is pret
ty ond original and because it presents
good ideas for remodeling an old dress.
The model ns pictured is made of
gray crepe meteor having rather large,
figured disks In self-color, broended
over Its surface. The figures are wide
ly scattered and hardly visible. The
skirt Is plain with n wide hem turned
up on the right side. A frill of the
material, made of very fine knife plait
ing is set under the top edge of the
hem. A skirt that needs to be length
ened might have a wide piece of ma
terial set on nt the bottom, and this
wotild need to be just twice ns wide
as the additional length required. It
need not be of the same pattern or ma
terial as the skirt, but the narrow
plaiting should be; and the frock
should be kept all In on6 color.
The blouse, with peplum, is wonder
fully well designed, with the fullness
taken up by two rows of shlrrlngs on
the shoulder. The shoulder seam it
lengthened and the blouse cut to nc
complish a high neck nt the buck, with
the throat open and filled In by extra
frills of crepe. It opens all the way
down the front nnd is gathered Into a
narrow belt at the waistline. This Is
covered by a soft crushed girdle of thn
crepe meteor finished with a knot and
two hanging ends at the front. The
ends of the sif.sh are rounded and the
turned up hems, edged with frills, have
the uppeurance of pockets or bags.
' The Newest Decoration.
The spring glove shows' u deol ot
stitching and embroidery, and the new
est coi'uttoii for frocks and blouses
is a running itltch put In with sewing
silk, several colors being used In closely
set lines. The colors have nothing to

ing up the seams of the costume; silk
for this purpose invariably , matches

Celestials Planned to Trip Up Foes,
Throw Water in Their Faces and
Then Cut Off Their Heads.
At the beginning of the, Chlno-Japa-nese
war, snys a contributor to the
Wiishington Star, one of our military
nttaches saw a Chinese regiment take
the field nt a review and go through n
very curious performance.
The soldiers carried long bamboo
poles like fishing rods, and with these
they rushed at one another, yelling
wildly and making very queer gestures
and grimaces."
"What's the game?" asked the Amer
ican. ,
"That regiment," a Chinese general
answered, "is one of our very oldest.
It Is now practicing a form of assault
that dates from prehistoric times. The
Idea Is to trip the enemy up with the
long wand, throw water In his face
and, In the midst of his bewilderment
at this extraordinary treatment, to
cut off his head." YouttVs Companion.
Not the Usual Kind.
"Old Gadabout's return to his native
heath doesn't match up with the usual
traditions surrounding the homecoming
of a globe trotter."
"So? How is that?"
"Oh, he was gone long, but he came
back short."

AVhen he got up to speak the audi

a tost n wife tried on her husband who
came home early one morning from a
banquet where there had been a quan

The wife, who found her fears liad
been realized, placed two chairs fac
ing each other, sat down In one and
applied the stnre ter.t, looking upon the
inebriated one with a cold, Used stare.
" 'I'll tell yon all about it, my dear,'
he hiecuped, "but that woman In the

Why He Subscribed.
A collector of subscriptions for the

farmer who was noted for his mean

once consented to subscribe fully as
large a sum as any he had yet re
ceived. "Mr. Hnrdfist," he said, addressing
the fanner, "you nre surely very fond
of music to give so much."
"Oh, yes," said the farmer; "they're
