LYdtf reckless men and women who are pestered with corns and who have at least once a week invited an awful death from lockjaw or blood poison are now told by a Cincinnati authority to use a drug called f reezone, which the moment a few drops are applied to any corn or calkis the soreness is re lieved and soon the entire corn or cal lus, root and all, lifts off with the fin gers. Freezone dries the moment it is ap plied, and simply shrivels the corn or cal lus without inflaming or even irritating the surrounding tissue or skin.

Railroad Through Hickory Nut Gap Is Again Agitated Hendersonville is always interest ed in railroad rumors and the revival of talk about a road through the Hic kory Nut Gap, and especially at this time when the government is doing things, on a big scale, the following from the Charlotte Observer carries with It a little more than ordinary in terest: ... . "Col.S. A. Jones, who has suc ceeded in enlisting the help of, the Government in the completion of a short line railroad from the mineral section of Jacksori county to trunk line connections the Government, out of the revolving fund of $50,000, 0CD supplying the rails necessary to equip the line is now in Washington "on the job," in the interests of the long proposed extension of the Sea board Air Line from Rutherfordton to Asheville, through Hickory Nut Gap. Railroad politics has all these years balked the consummation of this project favored so finely by na ture and by geographical and com mercial reasons ,but the war has changed the railroad situation so vastly that hope is newly risen, and some railroad projects long dormant, notably among them this connecting link between the coal fields and the commercial West with the seaboard of North Carolina, stand a fine chance of being brought into active develop ment by a Government that is appre ciative of opportunity. We believe there is an excellent possibility of the early serious attention to the Ruther-fordton-Asheville gap by Director Mc Adoo. Once that authority begins to study the situation, it is quite likely we may look for expeditious results. Mr. McAdoo ought to be brought in to possession of some of the his tory of the proposed route, and he ought to know that individual effort has long been centered on the fulfill ment of the project. One of the per sistent advocates of the Hickory Nut Gap line is Dr. Lucius B. Morse, president and general manager of the Chimney Rock Company, an organi zation which has already accomplish ed great things in the development of that region of State. Doctor Morse could tell Mr. McAdoo that from a to pographic standpoint the Hickory Nut Gap unquestionably is the most natural mode of entry from the east for railway construction. It seems indeed a rather strange fate that It should not long since have been occu pied. The Western North Carolina road, was at first headed for this val ley. It is an incomparably better gap than the one at Round Knob, con struction cost would be lower, easier grades could be obtained and the to tal elevation to be attained would be lower. The highest point of the gap to the southwest of Bat Cave (Reedy Patch) is 2,210 feet above sea level approximately the height, of Pack Square in Asheville! It is the lowest gap in the Blue Ridge. It would seem as though such a "ruling point" of distinct engineering value would long since have been taken advantage of by railroads. The difliculty is, that, in the past, all too commonly, physical conditions have in no wise determined railway construc tion, nor indeed have local needs got ten the hearing of the monied powers. It is an undeniable fact that there are vast areas, in the aggregate, in the United States that are without proper transportation facilities. For many years practically every railroad has held to the policy of not building new lines, but rather intensifying the ca pacity of existing lines, increasing terminal facilities, etc. This has led verv natnrallv' c Intensive lines of material development, at the very great expense Of the remoter sections. Notf these remote sections are just as rich agriculturally and possess just as many other natural advantages as do the places that, by the accident of fate, have secured high class trans portation facilities; but without a way out no country can possibly at tain its rightful development. Take North Carolina as an example: There are vast sections of our State, mil lions of acres, that are rendered more or less useless, or are enjoying, at most, only a meager prosperity, that would be changed over night ii they had railway transportation. As valuable as the automobile is, it can never supplant the highly perfected and equally highly efficient transpor tation by rail. In past decades, if a remote section of country secured railroads at all, they were inevitably built by local capital, had a struggle to exist, for varying lengths of time, usually going into bankruptcy then being bought in for little or nothing by the large systems and rehabilita ted. Now this is all wrong. There should be some way by which deserv ing sections of country can secure transportation without undergoing the old swindling process. This is one of the great benefits which, particularly a State like North Carolina, 'could reasonably expect from a permanent ownership of the railroads by the Federal Government. They could afford to develop sections of country needing railroads, without being compelled to look for the imme diate dividend. In the earlier days (particularly ih the West) railroads did expend vast sums of money in the development of unoccupied sections of the country, but this tendency has long since ceased. The missed, for gotten and "sidetracked" places every where abound. Only a glance at the map of our beloved State shows how true this statement is. When, of course, it comes to war measures then there would seem to be every possible justification for the occupation of the Hickory Nut Gap by a modern railroad to secure cheaper coal and more of it. This we all recognize, and the thing to do is to show it to McAdoo. (From Waynestlllc Mountaineer) Col. S. A. Jones, president of the Greater North Carolina Association, went to Washington Saturday in be-r half of Western North Carolina 4n get ting the links of railroad between Baptists of County Meet at Valley Hill Will you please, allow me space In your paper to say to the t churches and pastors of the Carolina' Associa tion" that themeeting of our Associa tion will be held, beginning August 7, at Valley Hill church, two miles west of Hendersonville. ..r,. ,; .

BRITONS AND CANADIANS Iff THJS COUNTRY MUST REGISTER A telegram 'has been received at this office from Gen. W. A. White, head of the British and Canadian re cruiting service in this country, con cerning the registration of British and Canadian subjects In the United States. The message was sent to Donald McRae, the British vice-Consul at Wilmington, and reads as fol lows: New York, July 5, 1918. Donald McRae, . Wilmington, N. C. The exchange of ratification of the recruiting conventions between the United States, Great Britain and Canada will take place in London, July 30, the 60 day period for all Britons and Canadians between - 21 and 30 years of age, both inclusive, will commence July 31 and expires September 28. Britons and Canad ians of 20 years of age and those be tween the aires of 31 and 44, both inclusive, will be required to regis ter on a date to be fixed by proclam ation by the President. This date will probably be about August 30, and 30 days after registration men of these ages will be liable to service In the United States army. In short all Britons and Canadians between the gaes of 20 and 44, both inclusive, in the. United States will be liable for draft on and after September 29th, unless they have enlisted or been medically rejected by one of the re cruiting depots of the British and Canadian recruiting missions before that date.

This Depot Street WHY BOYS OF 6th CO. ARE NOT IN FRANCE Editor of Hustler. s.ii'r ' 'K : ? ; From what I have heard,: it seems that a. great r many Hendersonville people have the idea that the old Sixth Company boys, who are still at Fort Caswell, are either physically deficient,; or lack, the courage; to go across. This is all a mistake, and does the boys a great injustice. Per haps you are, not k- aware of the fact that the boys1 who have been select ed for over-sea 'units were picked out by. lot, .and not on account of any marked ability on their part. The commanding officer uses a lot system for selecting these men be cause he knows how anxious they all are to get "Over ? There," and of course they couldn't all go, and leave the defenses in the hands of raw recruits. I think there is scarcely a Sixth Company man left on this side who would fall to pass the over-seas ex- amlnation. Perhaps it would interest you to 1 know that practially all of them have been made non-commissioned officers, and are doing their bit at present by training recruits. L. A. BLY, 9th Co. C.

Summer Complaint , During the hot weather of the sum mer months some member of almost every family is likely to be troubled with an unnatural looseness of the bowels, and it is of the greatest im portance that this be treated prompt ly, which can only be done when the medicine is kept at hand. Mrs. F. F. Scott, Scottsville, N. Y., states, "I first used Chamberlain's Colic Diar rhoea Remedy as much as five years r ago. At that time I had a severe at- tack of summer complaint and was suffering intense pain. One does re lieve me. Other members of my family have since used it with like results." Adv.
