WOULD BE UNFORTUNATE
Vice President, Marshall states
; that in his opinion it would be a na
I Loan Bond issue of $5,000,000,000
! should pass into the possession of
[the rich rather than in a large mea
Juheftionsl misfortune if all the tax-free
wealth represented by the Liberty
sure into the hands of the average
American.
He believes that taxation is not
only likely to be highter during and
after the war, but that taxes are to
be more thoroughly collected, and
much property therefore escaping
taxation will be taxed and the tax
collected; and therefore if the tax
free liberty bonds are all in the
hands of the rich the poorer people
of the Nation will have to pay a dis
proportionate part of the taxes.
The Government has certainly
made every provision and effort .to
avert such a result, and the banks
and business houses have greatly as
sisted the Government's efforts.
The bonds are made of small de
nominations and can be paid for in
installments. There is no reason
why every American of every
means or earning power can not be
come the owner of a Liberty Loan
Bond.
LIFT YOUR CORNS
" OFF WITH FINGERS
Tell how to loosen a tender corn or
callus so it lifts out without
pain.
You reckless men and women
who are pestered with corns and
who have at least,once a week in
vited an awful death from lockjaw
or blood poison are now told by a
Cincinnati authority to use a drug
called freezone, which the moment
a few drops are applied to any corn
or callus the soreness is relieved and
soon the entire corn or callus, root
and all, lifts off with the fingers.
Freezone dries the moment it is
applied, and simply shrivels the corn
or calus without inflaming or even
irritating the surrounding tissue or
skin. A small bottle of freezone will
cost very little at any of the drug
stores, but will positively rid one's
feet of every hard hr soft com or
hardened callus. If your druggist
hasn't any freezone he can get it at
any wholesale drug store for you.

ARCADE TONIGHT
Since the day of Adam's fall, un
til now, man's weakness has been
the "weaker sex." Some years ago'
a noted philosopher said "If Adam
had declined Eve'e apple Centra)
Park might now be a small portion
of the Gadren of Eden, and Broad
way a flower-lined avenue "
Today the world calls for brains.
"The big prizes are reserved for the
initiative." Sex does not enter into
the question so prominently as in
tho past; if a woman proves more
able than a man, she will win, re
gardless of her sex, but in spite of
her superiority she will still be
man's weakness.
Returning from a cruise of the
World, accompanied by the idol of
his heart, David Spencer finds other
plans have been arranged by his
wealthy father, and like the dutiful
son he wished to be, he married the
gir! he did not love. But, "Home is
where the heart is," and in a short
peroid we find Davijl working out
a new solution for a great problem.
If you think you have a big strong
heart and strength to battle through
life in a big way, or if life to you is
even a greater problem than it was
to David Spencbr, do not fail to see
"The Weakness of Man"—a story
that is full of the tang and flavor of
the world's greatest city,/ softened
by a romantic touch of the "tall
timber" country.
Good roads and automobiles,
da.iy mails and parcel post, are
making life on the farm very much
the same as life in town. With
greater social intercourse, .made by
quick transportation ; with better
schools, made possible by better
roac's, the suspicions and prejudices
that once subsisted between town
and country are b»-e iking down, as
they ought to brvs«:- down. hen
farmers' families were kept rr.a
rooi.ed by the mud half oi every
year; when it was a dreaded task
for the farm wife or ehe farm
daughter (to make a - jn-mih* trip to
the village on a shopping expedition
when the read between h,mc and
churcb was impassable, rni there
practically no communityi-f interest
between the merchant cas- and the
agricultural class located only a
few miles apart, there was very of
ten misunderstanding and f?r.d
feeling between them. That was n-,t
the case because of legitimate ex
cuse for it for .there was none; >t
was the case because strangers ary
naturally not congenial, especiall;
if there are marked differences o/
dress and manner. This feeling ser
ves to divide the European states in
to antagonistic etements. In that
country of narraw frontiers there s
little social intercourse across the
lines, therefore little friendliness
ergo constantly renewed warfare.
The same is true in a way along our
Mexican border, and it used to be
true on our Canadian border. Next
to $2 wheat and 20c cotton, the best
thing that ever happened to the
West and South are good roads and
automobiles.
