Blue-jay. is the most certain. It is sate and gentle. Vet the unknowing ones experiment wii'.i harih, mussy liquids or the dun^orcus raxor. These two way;; are temporary. But Blue-jay is scientific. The spot of medicated wax, discovered by a great chemist, soothes while it works. Place a Btue-jty Plaster on your throbbing corn tonight. Relief is instant. The soft felt pad stops the p*'n relieving the pressure. In 48 hours ttie medicated wax hns saturated the corn - undermined it to its roots - and it comes off painlessly, complexly. Nature responds quickly to such a gentle, corrective treatment. Hardly a corn can resist. Of course once in a while there is an old stubborn corn which requires a second or third application. But such are rare. Blue-jay Plasters are made by Bauer & Black, the great surgical dressing house. Try a Blue-jay Plaster now. Join the pain-free thostaanda who rely on Bine-jay. Once you know Bloc-jay, you'll never consent to have a corn again, nor to coddle it with temporary ways. The cost is slight, the application simple. Remember, we promise immediate relief ana a defense-leas corn.� Blue-jay Plasters are sold by all druggists- 25c per package. Also B1 u e - j a y Bunion Plastera.

He would not ; listen to the draftees and insulted any one who appeared In the. court." Speaker Calls Him The speaker called Captain Power to order on the ground that auch language could not be used In respect to a member of the bench, and Captain Power withdrew his 'remark. I.ucien Cannon declared that the discussion of the Quebec riots had been introduced by Colonel Currle. not In the Interests of the country but because of his pe�7 parochial politics. Speaker Rhodes objected to the wording of his remarks. "Oh. let him blow off," said Colonel Currle. Mr. Cannon withdrew the remark. He then declared that be was sorry that the discussion had led to attacks on the Roman Catholic clergy and the ltader of the opposition. Le Devoir, flenri Bouraasa'a paper, should be suppressed, but the 'government wss afraid to do It. Mr. Cannon read a lengthy affidavit from Arm and Lavergne to show that he had been called from his residence to the Chateau Frontenac and requested by Oolonel Machlu to do what he could to avert tbe trouble at Quebec.
