The text of the manifesto follows:
“The majority of the United

of the senate bill authorizing the
president of the United States to

a similar bill having already
passed the house by a vote of 304

PAIN? NOT A BIT!
LIFT YOUR CORNS
OR CALLUSES OFF
No humbug! Apply few drop*
j then just lift them away
J with fingers.
This new drug is nn ether compound
discovered by a Cincinnati chemist. It
is called freezone, and can
now be obtained in tiny
bottles as here shown lit
very little cost from any
drug store. Just ask for
freezone. Apply a drop or
two directly upon a tender
corn or callus and Instant-
ly the soreness disappears.
Shortly you will find the
corn or callus so loose that
you can lift it off, root
and all, with the fingers.
Not a twinge of pain,
soreness or Irritation; not
even the slightest smart-
ing, either when applying
freezone or nfterwurds.
Tills drug doesn’t eat up
ihe corn or callus, but
shrivels them so they loos-
en nnd come right out. It
is no humbug! It works
like n charm. For a few
cents you can get rid of ev-
ery hard corn, soft corn or
corn between the toes, as well as pain-
ful calluses on bottom of your feet. It
never disappoints and never burns,
bites or inflames. If your druggist
hasn’t nny freezone yet, tell him to

Hoboken, N. J.—With the arrest
here of Fritz Kolb, a German, the au-
thorities expressed the belief that they
had frustrated a well-developed plot
to aid Germany by blowing up muni-
tion plants in this country engaged
in turning out contracts for the en-
tente allies. The police said they
found in Kolb’s room two bombs
which, according to rumors, were to
be sent to President Wilson.
After a preliminary investigation,
however, they announced a conviction
that the plans of the bomb plotters
had to do entirely with destroying war
supplies, and no attack on the presi
dent's life was contemplated.
The police also said they had in-
formation which might help In solving
