"Gets-It" For Corns On
Quit Puttering With Corns. Use Tills
Sure, New-Plan Corn Cure
A few drops of "GETS-IT." the big
jrest seller in the -world to-day of any
corn remedy, is enough to spoil posi
tive doom to the fiercest corn that ever
cemented itself to a toe. It's good-by,
Tbeae little toaa
bad "GETS-IT" hadoooa.
Johnnie. You apply "GETS-IT" In
two seconds—no fussing with plasters
that Uon't stay put, with salves that
make corns "pull' and make the toe
beefy and raw, with knives, scissors,
razors and diggers that make corns
grow faster and that may cause blood
poison from corn-cutting and corn
bleeding. "GETS-IT" shrivels up
corns, they come right off. That's
the new principle. It's just common
sense. No more corn-pains. "GETS
IT" is safe, and never hurts the flesh.
Get rid of corns and callouses.
"GETS-IT" is sold at 25c a bottle
by all druggists, or sent direct if you I
wish, from E. Lawrence & Co., Chi-!

What Is Woman's
Beauty But Health
And the Basis of Her Health and
Vigor Lies in the Careful Reg
ulation of the Bowels
Tf woman's beauty depended upon
cosmetics, every woman would be a
picture of loveliness. But beauty lies
deeper than that. It lies in health. In
the majority of cases the basis of
health, and the cause of sickness, can
be traced to the action of the bowels.
The headachos, the lassitude, the
sallow skin and the lusterless oyes are
usually due to constipation. So many
things that women do habitually con
duce to this trouble. They do not eat
carefully, they eat indigestible foods
because the food?' are served daintily
and they do not 1 exercise enough. But
whatever the particular cause may lie
it is important that the condition
should be corrected.
An ideal remedy for women, and
one especially suited to their delicate
requirements, is Dr. Caldwell's Syrup
Pepsin, which thousands of women
endorse highly, among them Mrs. C. S.
Vance, of 511 S. Ray St., Xew Castle.
Pa. At times she had spells of indi
gestion so severe that she thought she
would die. Syrup Pepsin regulated her
stomach and bowels, and she attri
butes her excellent health to-day to
All the family can use Dr. Cald
wells Syrup Pepsin, for thousands of
mothers give it to babies and children.
It is also admirably suited to the re
quirements of elderly people, in fact to
all who by reason of age or infirmity
cannot stand harsh salts, cathartics,
pills or purgatives. These should al
ways be avoided, for at best their ef-

Secretary Bryan Is
Not in Gamboa's Class
Special- to The Telegraph
Chicago, 111., April 30. Blame for
the continuance of Hherta in power In
Mexico was laid at the door of the
United States by Professor Frederick
Starr, of the University of Chicago, in
an address before a meeting of congre
gational churches at Aurora yesterday.
"Huerta would not have lasted six
weeks," he said, "if the United States
had let him alone. Huerta was of no
consequence when the United States be
gan on him, and now he is the biggest
man in Mexico.
"It would have been hard to find a
man less fitted to deal happily with
Mexico than John Ijind, because of his
aggressive personality. He was sure
to be beaten in a diplomatic exchange
with Gamboa, who knows more about
diplomacv in an hour than our friend
Bryan does in a week. He can write
a better diplomatic paper asleep than
our Secretary of State can awake.
"All may still be well in Mexico, but
the United States has to recede from
"War in Mexico would be a hideous
spectacle. It would mean the physical,
mental and moral degradation of the
whole people. Our soldiers would be
come savages in that clime."

Because of the failure of more than
