Berne, Switzerland.—Emperor William has addressed the following mes-
sage to former King Constantino:
"I have heard with wrath of the Infamous outrage committed by our
common enemies upon you and upon your dynasty. 1 assure you that your
deprivation can be only temporary. The mailed fist of Germany, with fur-
ther aid from Almighay God will restore you to your throne, of which no nian
Financial Deorpssinn and by right can rob you. The armies of Germany and Germany's allies will

"Tnnlno hns done a hundred times
more than I expected of It," wild Mrs.
N. A. Bishop, of Boswell, On., "for I've
laid my crutches aside nnd 11111 actually
doing all my own housework."
"I was a cripple with rheumatism
for a long time nnd for three years I
had to use crutches to get about on. I
had severe pains In my hips and the
small of my hack and for .years I
hadn't been able to do any of my house-
work to amount to anything. I lost
my appetite and things didn't tnste
right nor agree with me, and I was
constipated and hail to be taking some-
thing for It constantly. All my neigh-
bors knew about my helpless condition,
for the fact Is, I was an Invalid for go-
ing on twenty-two years.
"After I had taken five bottles of
Tanlac I could walk anywhere I wanted
to go without my crutches, for I didn't
need them any more, so I laid theui
aside. The rheumatic pains left me,
my appetite Is good and I can eat any-
thing I want without the least bit of

A well-known correspondent of an
Important Western dally paper recent-
ly made an extended visit to Western
Canada, and in summing up the re-
sults, after going thoroughly Into con-
ditions there, says there Is no financial
depression In Canada, nor has there
been anything of the sort since the
war began. Anyone who has watched
the barometer of trade, and seen the
bank clearings of the dKTerent cities
grow and continue to grow will have
arrived at the same conclusion. The
trade statistics reveal a like situation,
The progress thnt the farmers are
making is highly satisfactory. As this
correspondent says: "It is true there
have been adaptations to meet new
conditions, and taxes hnve been re-
vised, and that a very large burden of
added expense In nintiy lines has been
nssumed, but It has nil been done me-
thodically, carefully and with full re-
gard for the resources to be called on.
"Thnt this has been done fairly and
wisely Is proved by the present com-

Says Corns Lift Out
Without Any Pain
Sore corns, hard corns, soft corns or
any kind of a corn can shortly be
lifted right out with the fingers if you
will apply on the corn a few drops of
freezone, says a Cincinnati authority.
At little cost one can get a small bot-
tle of freezone at any drug store, which
will positively rid one's feet of every
corn or callus without pain or sore-
ness or the danger of Infection.
This new drug Is an ether compound,
and dries the moment It Is applied nnd
does not inflame or even irritate the
surrounding skin. Just think! You
can lift off your corns and calluses
now without n bit of pain or soreness.
