NOT THIS TIME. rn
The Opportunity to Pay Vex.co What "
She Deserves is Lost.
A Washington dispatch to the Poet Dis- Ha
patch under date of Aug. 14 says: The sit- hut
uation in the Mexican troubles was yester- ma
day materially changed, which means a sen,
settlement in some form with a basis for of
diplomatic action in the future. The Cabi- ed
net hail a longer session than usual. There
was little if anythingconnidered. other than
the pending controversy over the inprieorn
ment ofl'utting. Thequestion was thoroug;h
ly and conservativeiy considered and dis
cussed fromn every conceivable point. The I
most important question. however, was the Mo
proposition received Wednesday evening oce
late through the mails, from MinisterJack- the
son, at the City of Mexico, conveying to the Thi
State Department a plan for the adjust- ant
ment of the affair as proposed by the Mexi- twi
can Government. In brief it is this: The ant
Mexican Government has all the time claim- ber
ed that it had done nothing in the premises ins
which was not warranted and in harmony tur
with the spirit of the law and expressed Nel
statutes of the Republic. That there may ligt
be nothing left undone to ascertain the law ver
of the case and that the respective govern- a th
ments may not proceed further without ex)
having the laws of the two nations bearing gal
upon the case fully and satisfactorily weigh- put
ed and considered, the Mexican Government w
Las made to this country, through Minister wh
Jacksou. the proposition that if the State nol
Department will send to the City of Mexico sio
an able lawyer as a special envoy of this lea
Government to confer with Attorney-Gen
eral of the Mexican Republic as to the pro
per interpretation of the law under which
Cutting is held, they believe an amicable so
lution to the problem can be arrived at.
In the official communication of Minister
Jackson particular stress is laid upon the Br
belief that the State Department has not Ks
properly constructed and read the law, at At
the same time exlressedl the belief that sal
when this Government has by one of its vie
most able and distinguished lawyers made we
a thorough investigation of the law and ex- ce
isting statutes, it will t, willing to concede vie
to, the Mexican Gover.:ment the right to en,
hold Cutting for the offetse with which he is at
chlargeld. After two hours' discussion of po
thls snbject by the tCabinet, it was unani- ba
nmously agreed that the prolosition froam ca
the Mexican Government be accepted and ne
a representative sent to the Pity of Mexico we
Ia soonaspossible. This Government is to th

- cseded in closing all the saloons and con
le victing one of the keepers in a trial which
0 ended on Saturday. On Sunday morning
;t at 1:311 o'clock a twenty-five pound keg of
Spowder mixed with nails was placed on a D

Scausing a report that awoke the whole w

It is but recently that the art has been
taught in the medical colleges. Unlike
dentistry the student is not obliged to,
pass an examination in anatomy. h-t
can simply bring his mind exelusiviel
to bear on learning to treat and care
ror the feet. Formerly Brooklynites
were compelfed to patronize New York
chiropodists or else attend to their own

ears. however, a dozen or more indi

big or little bunions. have sign tied
their readiness to attend to the feet of
suferin residents. I called recently
at the ofce of a local chiropodist and
found him busily engaged in compound

cure all manner of diseases of the feewt.

who wear shoes large enough for them
seldom, if ever suffer with corn.
Stumpy or short shoes cause corns to
form easily. I have frequently known
cases where a soft corn would affict
the whole foot and ankle. I have many
patients who have corns whicn have
festered into the bone. Bunions are
often mistaken for hard corns. A bun
ion forms, usually. on the side of the
foot or betwee the toes. A bunion is
nothing more or less than a strained
joint caused by a short or narrow
shoe. French heeled boots and shoes
have been the cause of untold misery
to ladies, and I have naticed. since the
common-sense shoe has become fash
ionable, the wearers of them have had
fewer corns. Narrow dancing-pumps
are also very injurious to the feet. Op
erations on fibrous and nerve corns are

and the paring and beautifying of nails
is usually performed amid elegant sur

T The doctor with whom I talked ex
plained the methods used in treating
bunaions, which may be of service to
Brooklynites who perform their own
ch:ropothy. First, the bunion is soft
eaed with a camel's hair brush to
destroy soreness, and then the hard
callous is removed by means of a dou
s ble-edged knife. At this point in the
operation the fibers of the bunion ire

denote that the covering of lamb's
