How to take corns OUT, not merely off, without plasters, dangerous cutting or caustic liquids. Also stops the acid perspiration, which ruins shoes and causes soreness, etc., says C. S. Turner, of the Army Medical Corps. Perhaps you have invited blood poison by hacking the top off thtrt corn with a razor, or burnt it off with caustic pastes, liquids or plas ters, soaked it in hot water, picked dubiously at it with your fingernails and sprinkled it with various pow ders to stop the aching. After doing all this and waiting a while for re sults, you either find that most of the corn has stayed right on the job or else a brand new top has sprouted up to replace the old one and the ache is still doing business at the old stand, worse than ever, and plus considerable extra soreness of raw | skin around the corn. This is be-j cause you have only worried and ir ritated the top of the corn without; at all affecting the little pointed part or core, which is the real business, end-that causes all the pain by press ing on sensitive nerves. It would be as logical to cut the top off. an ach ing tooth to stop the pain. It is only after all these time-wasting expert- ! Vnents with a corn, unpleasant as j they are, that you are really ready j to appreciate the marvelous way Kodcll medicated water acts and how totally different it is from anything else. It soon dissolves out the oil j from dead, hardened, calloused and j "corny" skin, leaving it soft and i "mushy" as fresh putty, so thati corns can easily be picked right out, j root and all; whereas callouses turn I white, curl up at edges and come] clean off with one scrape with the j dull edge of a knife. Sound, healthy skin is not affected in any way by the water, except that it is wonder fully refreshing to sore, tired, tender, aching feet. To prepare the medi cated water, which is also oxygenat ed, invest a few cents in a quarter pound of the refined Kodell com pound, this being a standard prep aration, often prescribed by physi cians and kept in stock by most druggists. Locally, Keller's Drug; Store, G. A. Gorgas. Clark's Medi cal Co., H. C. Kennedy, would always have it on hand. Use about a table spoonful to a gallon of rather hot water and rest the feet in this, but first bid all your foot misery a final farewell, for such tortures will soon he only unpleasant memories of the past. , OLD "FASHIONED FAMILY REMEDY FOR COLDS GRIP, PNEUMONIA, .ggIBHAND BODY BUILDING! jt !

Sergeant Albright is attached to the Headquarters Company of the 1 112tli Infantry. His letter, dated Oetober 4, follows; "Things are awfully bright here iat the present time, but we are putting the screws to the Huns. But It is not an easy job, they are very mean fighters in every way. "The Lord was with me the other night.'

Later all of the sergeants except himself, were wounded, and when lie wrote the second letter, he, too, was in the hospital, injured, but not seriously. Sergeant Fitzgerald tells In his first letter that the boys have been I right back of the firing line fretn July 4 until August, as 'reserve lorces. He and the others in the company were relieved on the night ft 12 ', his birthday. "In all me lighting- that, we were In I shot live shells out my rifle," he writes, """ ( j :i magazines of seven shots each, from my revolver, so believe me, got my share as between the Get mail line and our line there was a distance of about twenty yards at the most. There was a miniature track that ran on top of a little "ank, just made wide enough for i i.it one track, so you see how we were, with the Germans 6n one side and we were on the other. The only thing the Germans were using were machine guns, and believe me they certainly are a wicked ma chine, and they had hundreds of I hem right in front of us on the other side of the bank. "Our company, captured two rail roads, advanced over a river, and | drove the Germans back two miles before they stopped us at the bank, but by that time half of our boys were out, wounded, very few of them were killed. We held our po sition there for fifty-two hours be fore we wbre relieved. * * * 'We were caught in four German artil lery barrages in twelve hours. The Fourth Platoon of Company I, which 1 have charge of, had 64 men when we went up and when we came back I called roll and 22 were ac counted for. On the Go In his next letter mailed last month hq writes: "We certainly have those sauerkraut eaters on the go and we have not had any rest since we started on the Fourth of July, hut you can see the boys don't need anw rest to get the Germans on liic move. * • ♦ "I was the only sergeant left In our company on the first of Octo ber, all the others were back in the hospital. On the third thore were orders sent to headquarters recom mending me for bravery for pulling off a 'stunt' and on the fourth I got wounded and I arrived at the base 'hospital on the eighth. • By the way things look to me I believe this war will soon end, I be lieve this winter some time, and I suppose that it is the only way we j will get a rest."

MUCH OPPOSITION TO WILSON'S TRIP Republican Senators Doubt | Wisdom of Prolonged Ab sence by tljc President • • Washington, Nov. appears to be developing In Congress, particularly among Republican | members, to President Wilson's plans to go to Europe for the com ing peace conference. While Republican leaders are not inclined at this time to openly voice their displeasure over the reported plans of the President, it Is clearly apparent from informal talks with senators and representatives on the Republican side thut they are not at j ull pleased with Mr. Wilson's pro jected absence during an indefinite period of time and it would not be surprising if this feeling were soon to take shape in debate In both branches of Congress. From all that they have been able to ascertain regarding his plans. Re publican leaders feel that the Presi dent, who contemplates leaving this country immediately after.he de livers his forthcoming annual ad dress to Congress, will be absent until after the first of the year, per haps for several months, and they doubt the wisdom of, the Chief Ex ecutive of the nation going abroad for an extended stay. Republicans are inclined to look . upon the projected visit as one that will involve a long-range discharge of the President's duties during one of the most important periods in the history of the nation. From what could be gathered us to the views of Republican leaders to-day, it appears to be their feeling that the most important thing before the country, aside frorii the work of the peace conference, is reconstruction legislation and they do not look with favor upon the idefa of the Pres ident being absent , during the next few months. Railroad Notes H. C. Miller, foreman of the sec tion gang of the Western Maryland raiKvay, is displaying a 100 per cent. Fourth Liberty Loan flag at Guil ford station, near Chanibersburg. Western Maryland employes in the district i subscribed for eighteen bonds. A new schedule on the C. V. R. R„ will be put in operation on Sun day. There are no material changes except the early morning train out of this :lty which is to leave Union Station ten minutes earlier, at 5.05 instead of 6.15. Railroad officials here state there j is little to the story of the discharge of girl clerks who have been em ployed during the progress of the war in the various departments. Some of them will no doubt lose their positions when all the soldiers return, for it is in accordance with the policy of the company and the fedoral railroad administration that a soldier may have his Job back when he lbaves the army service. , The ticket ofttce in the LehlgH Valley railroad station at Lehighton, was entered and robbed, the thieves getting away with between S6OO and S7OO In cash and checks. Entrance | was gained by forcing a window from the station platform. The safe was blown open. J. E. Brower has been appointed , general foreman in shops by Super- I intendent R. T. Morrow, of the Pitts- I burgh division, Pennsylvania rail- . road. He will be under the jurisdic- i tion of the master mechanic. To permit work to be started on railroad construction delayed by the war, the war industries board has issued an order giving lumber ship ments for railroads a priority rating higher than that accorded any other class of commodities. In order to provide a reserve of power to congested districts in the eastern section of the country the railroad administration has arrang ed to park fifty of the new standard locomotives at Potomac yards, just outside of Washington, and 110 en gines in the vicinity of Cleveland Ohio. It is the aim of the administra tion to hold these locomotives to clear up any blockade that may oc cur during the winter. The Cincinnati, Findlay and Fort Wayne railroad was sold at auction at Findlay, Ohio, last Monday, to the New York bondholders for $200,000. This road was part of the Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton railroad, and during the war it was planned to scrap it. Georgo D. Dixon, vice-president of the Pennsylvania railroad, has also been elected president of the Lehigh and Hudson river road. Arthur Williamson, road foreman of engines on the Western Maryland,' at Hagerstown Md.. has been ap pointed superintendent of the Elklns division; also the Cumberland Valley and the Cumberland and Pennsyl vania railroad. * C. W. Blound has been appointed trainmaster and F. H. Herron as sistant trainmaster of the Ohio River and Western, with headquarters at Zanesville, Ohio. Employes' mugazines, published by railroads for their employes, are to be delivered to them when they are puld their monthly or semi-monthly wages. This is in accordance with a recent order of the director general. • Permission to lay tracks to con nect with coal mines will no longer he granted by the fuel administra tion, announcement is made that such applications will nd longer be received at Washington, but should be made direct to the local railroad officers, as before the war.

Lincoln Highway Has Been Well Cared For At the request of Lieutenant-Gov ernor Frank B. McClaln, who is State Censul for the Lincoln Highway Association In Pennsylvania, State Highway Commissioner J. Denny (ON'eil has prepared a statement show ing the work done by, the State High way Department forces during the year. This report shows miles have received surface treat ment; 22% miles have been recon structed, and seven up-to-date con crete bridges have been built. The total amount of money expend ed by the department on the Lin coln highway for resurfacing, recon struction, bridge work, and oiling is $747,505.78. The expenditures of this large sum was made necessary largely on account of the thousands ctf United States army trucks which I used this highway during the past year. Dally bulletins will be lsrued this STOMACH TROUBLES ARE DUE TO ACIDITY Tells Safe, Certain, Speedy Re lief For Acid Indigestion Sy-called stomach troubles, - such as indigestion, gas, sourness, stom ach-ache and inability to retain food are in probably nine cases out of ten, simply evidence that excessive se cretion of acid is taking place in the stomach, causing the formation of gas and acid indigestion. Gas distends the stomach and causes that full, oppressive, burning feql ing sometimes known us heurtburn, while the acid Irritates gnd Inflames the delicate lining of the stomach. The trouble lies entirely in the ex cess development or secretiuli of acid. To stop or prevent this souring of the food contents of the stomach and to neutr<ze the acid, and muke it bland and harmless, a teaspoonful of bisurated magnesia, u good and effec tive corrector of acid stomach, should bo taken in a quarter of a glass of hot or cold water after eating or whenever gas, sourness or acidity is felt. This sweetens the stomach and neutralizes the acidity in a few mo ments and is a erfectly harmless and inexpensive remedy to use. An antiucid, such as bisurated mag nesia which can be obtained from any druggist in either ppwder or tablet form enables the storpach to do its work properly without the aid of ar tificial digeßtenls. Magnesia conies in Beveral forms, so be certain to ask for and take only Bisurated Mag , nesiu. which is especially prepared for the above purpose. G. A. Gorgas.
