Ask at any pharmacy for a quarter ounce of frcezone, which will cost very little, but is said to be sufficient to rid one's feet of every hard or soft corn or callus. You apply just a few drops on the tender, aching eorn and instantly the soreness is relieved, and soon the eorn is so shriveled that it lifts out with out pain. It is a sticky substance which dries when applied and never inflames or even irritates the adjoin ing tissue.

Freddie Welsh Would Raise Sport Regiment New York, April 10 Freddie Welsh, lightweight champion of tho world, to day sent, to (iovernor Ulntmau a letter asking that he be allowed to organize a sportsman's regiment in America for service in the Kuiopean trenches. Welsh declares he wants to offer his services and financial assistance in such an en terprise . anil he proposed boxing bouts in which he shall appear as one ot me principals, the proceeds to go to the sup port of the force. "Several friends of mine, graduates of West Point," Welsh wrote, "to. whom I hav broached the subject, have signified the subject, have signified their willingness to join the regiment. Many boxers and oilier sportsmen are enthusiastic over the project and want not only to join, but to help in every way to raise tho necessary funds. A number of these boxers have seen serv ice in the United Htates army." Welsh, who is an Englishman by birth, points out that he has lived in this country for 15 years. His wife and two children are Auihnrans. "I feel that the entrance of America into the war," he said, "is the call to arms for every man, who, like myself, has been given an opportunity to earn a living in this great country.'-' Harry Pollock, manager of Welsh, de clared his intention of being the first to enroll in the Welsh regiment.

The time to begin is now, nothing is ever gain ed by indecision. Begin by doing without some one" tiling, wliiih possibly may not come under the head of extravagance, and still is not a necessity. It is not so much the amount you save at first that counts, but .it paves the way for the systematic saving, which, in the end, makes the successful men and women of tomorrow. There is no country in the world today with such vast opportuni ties as our own for making and saving money. Thcfce facts shottld be especially brought home to us at this time, considering the fear ful cost of war md the increased cost of liviug. Secretary Redfield of the De partment of Commerce, has sent appeals to the public schools throughout the country, asking the children to save old paper andi rags. "In the early history of the ; paper industry," he says, "pub- iicity was given to the importance! of saving rags. It is of scarcely; less importance now." If the cliil-; drcn would begin by saving these ' two things, it would be a great I step in the right direction. We should teach them it is not a thing: to be ashamed of, as some of our' largest industries make their prof-v its from by-products.

His phe nomenal rise in life may be at tributed to his following clear prin cipals and methods. In an ad dress to students in a commercial college he said, "Avoid specula tion; avoid indorsements. Aim high. For the question 'What must I do for my employer?' sub stitute 'What can I do?' Begin to save early 'Capitalists trust the saving young inaii.'
