IN THE LAND 0* COMMON SENSE Says it is suicide to cut corns, and tells how they lift right out You simply ssy to the dijtg store man, "Give me a quarter of an ounce of freezone." This will cost very little but ia sufficient to remove every hard or soft •orn from one's feet. A few drops applied directly upon a tender, aching corn should relieve the soreness instantly, and soon the entire corn, root and all, can be lifted out with the fingers without pain. This new way to rid one's feet of corns was introduced by a Cincinnati man, who. says that while freezone is sticky it dries in a moment, and seems to simply shrivel up the corn without inflaming or even irritating the surrounding tissue or skin. Don't let father die from infection or lock.K.w from whittling at his corns, but cut this out and make him try it.

Dr. Skovholt said the first thing he had to do when he reached there was to forget that he was a doctor, and remember he was training to become a~ soldier.

He gave the program for the day which is as fol lows: Rise at 5:15, Reveille at 5:30, Breakfast 5:50, Setting up exercise 7 to 8, Class 9:30 to 10:30, Class 10:30 to 11:30, Dinner at 12, Class 1 to 2, Class 2 to 3, Equitation 3 to 4:30, Retreat 5:30 to 5:40, Supper 6.

FINE TOBACCO COLLECTION The Home Guard of this city is very much pleased with the returns that have been received through the box es distributed around town for the tobacco fund for Co. "E" and wish to thank the citizens for their liberal patronage. The boxes that were opened Monday evening showed a col lection of $42.78 for the first three days that the boxes were out. The Guard are still distributing boxes and expect to have one hundred or more out by the last of this week. Labels are also being sent to the ad joining counties who have members in Co. "E" and a letter of explanation accompanies each one afeking them to co-operate with the Home Guard here in this manner. The Home Guard have received many words of commendation for the way it has gone about this matter, most people think it preferable to taking a »Jb scription list and going after the same ones all of the time, this being the more equitable way. The matter of shipment of the tobacco has been taken up with the American Tobac co Co., and the Guard is awaiting word from them anytime. Word is expected shortly from Lieut. Jeffrey, as to how much tobacco the Company will need each month. It is the plan however, now to send about one hun dred and fifty dollars worth of to bacco a month to the company. If the collection amounts to more tnan this a month a separate fund will be kept and donated to the boys vhen they return to be used for whatever is most needed. It is hoped that the people of Williston and the surround ing country will push this tobacco fund for OUR BOYS OVER THERE as they have been and it will be a great success and it sure will be ap preciated by the BOYS.

However, three have been rounded up to fulfill the engagement without fail. They are Fred Luedke, B. A. Johnson and E. Fortin. Despite the 258 marks roll ed up in Williston this combination ought to show well for Minot.

Carney of Williston, N. D., who annually gives fifty dollars to the class winning the contest. Each class is to prepare their own songs and sing them along with the Alma Mater of the univer sity. There is spirited competition between the classes and some very good songs are written and sung and this year's contest will be no excep tion. One of the features of this year's contest will be the coming of Prof. Dykema, head of the department of community singing of the university of Wisconsin.

TO COUNTY FARMERS The County Agent is very naxious to hear from all townships at once that want to use the government poisoned oats this coming spring in the gopher extermination work. The mixing should be done very soon so that the poison will be ready for use as soon as the snow goes off. We will want to get in an application for a man to mix for the County and so far only two townships have been heard from. It is going to be hard to get clean oats this year and the townships should get busy at once so that they can get the oats they need. The County Agent is ready to at tend any farmers club meeting or ar range for agricultural meetings at any point in the? County where a meet ing is wanted. Speakers can be pro cured on any subjects that the farm ers want help on. Write to County Agricultural Agent, Williston, N. D., if you want a meeting in your town or locality. We have located a good supply of grass seed, both slender wheat or rye grass, as it is sometimes called, and brome grass. The County grows a large amount of sweet clover and al falfa seed and this seed is now be ing cleaned and scarified and will soon be ready for sale. Buy your seed corn at once thru your seed house if you want any. Respectfully, E. W. Hall, County Agri. Agent. WILLISTON CHURCHES ENGLISH LUTHERAN CHURCH Preaching at 10:30 A. M.

As to bread, if you bake, it at home, use other cereals than wheat and if you buy it, buy only war bread. Our object is that we should buy and consume one-third less wheat products than we did last week. Meatless Days "Have one meatless day (Tues day) in every week and one meatless meal in every day.

HIGHEST QUALITY HIGHEST AWARDS HAVE ROSY CHEEKS AND FEEL FRESH AS A DAISY—TRY THIS! 8ays glass of hot water with phosphate before breakfast washes out poisons. To see the tinge of healthy bloom in your face, to see your skin get clearer and clearer, to wake up with out a headache, backache, coated tongue or a nasty breath, in fact to feel your best, day In and day out, just try inside-bathing every morning for one week. Before breakfast each day, drinK' a glass of real hot water with a teaspoon* (ul of limestone phosphate in it as a harmless means of washing from the stomach, liver, kidneys and bowels the previous day's indigestible waste, sour bile and toxins thus cleansing, sweetening and purifying the entire alimentary canal before putting mora food into the stomach. The action of hot water and limestone phosphate on an empty stomach is wonderfully in vigorating. It cleans out all the sour fermentations, gases and acidity and gives one a splendid appetite for break fast. A quarter pound of limestone phos phate will cost very little at the drug store but is sufficient to demonstrate that just as scap and hot water cleaiises, sweetens and freshens the skin, so hot water and limestone phos phate act on the blood and internal or gans. Those who are subject to con stipation, bilious attacks, acid stomach, rheumatic twinges, also those whose kin is sallow and complexion pallid, are assured that one week of inside bathinp will have thorn both looking and feeling better ii every way.
