GEORGE BEBAN GREATEST CHARACTER ACTOH ON THE SCREEN, IN Telia Why a Corn Is So Painful and Says Cutting Makes Them Grow. Press an electric button and you form a contact with a live wire which rings the bell. When your shoes press against your corn it pushes its sharp roots down upon a sensitive nerve and you get a shock of pain. instead of trimming your corns, which merely makes them grow, just step into any drug store and ask for a Quarter of an ounce of I'roftfeonc. This will cost very little but is sufficient to remove every hard or soft corn or cut Ins from one's feet. A few drops applied directly upon' a tender, aching corn stops the soreness instantly, and soon the born shrivels up so it lifts right out, root and nil, without'pain. This drug never inflames or even irritates the surrounding tissue or skin.-rAdvt. BAD FLOODS IN CLOSE THEATRES period, and on morion by \\\ J. Mart- | lett, seconded by F. M.
