people troubled with corns will follow
the simple advice of this Cincinnati
authority, who claims that a few drops
of a drug called freezone when applied
to a .tender, aching corn or hardened
callous stops soreness at once, and
soon the corn or callous dries up and
lifts right off without pain.
He says freezone dries Immediately
and never inflames or even Irritates
the surrounding skin. A small bottle
of freezone will cost very little at any
. drug store, but will positively remove
every hard or soft corn or callous
from one's feet Millions of America's
women will welcome this announce
ment since the inauguration of the
high heels. If your druggist doesn't
have freezone tell him to order a small

In Its Consequences That Conflict
Ranksas the Most Momentous of
All the Struggles of Revolutionary
Days Revealed to the British the
True Spirit of Their Foes.
A LITTLE before
sunset 143 years
ago, a few hun
their guns, threw
off their packs,
and set to work
with great spirit
At midnight Bos
ton was bnrted In sleep. The sentry's
cry of "All's well !" could be heard dis
tinctly from Its shores.
At dawn, 143 years ago, the Ameri
cans at work were seen by the sailors
on board the British ships of wnr and
the alarm was given. .The captain of
the Lively, the neurest ship, without
waiting for orders, put a spring upon
her cable and, bringing her guns to
bear, opened a Are upon the hill. One
man, among a number who had Incau
tiously ventured outside, was killed. A
subaltern reported his death to Colonel
Prescott and asked what was to be
done. "Bury him," was the reply.
It was the first fatality in the battle
of Bunker Hill, one of the most mo
mentous conflicts In our Revolutionary
history, It was the first regular battle
between the British and -the Americans
and most eventful in its consequences.
The British had ridiculed and despised
their enemy, representing them as das
tardly and inefficient ; yet here the best
British troops, led on by experienced
officers, were repeatedly repulsed by
an inferior force of that enemy mere
yeomanry from works thrown up In a
ingle night, and suffered a loss rarely
paralleled In battle with the most vet
eran soldiers. According to their own
returns their killed and wounded, out
of a detachment of 2,000 men, amount
ed to 1,054, and a large proportion of
them officers. The loss of the Ameri
cans was 411 out of 1,500 men en
gaged. So the number of casualties in
this battle was more than 80 per cent

of the number In uctlon, thus placing
It among the bloodiest battles thut had
heretofore been known to history. At
Waterloo the British loss was less
than 84 per cent. No wonder that
June IT Is a second Fourth of July.
What the Victory Meant
A gallant loyalist of Massachusetts,
who fought so well for King George
that he rose to be a full general in the
British army, regarded Bunker Hill as
a transaction which controlled every'
thing that followed. "You could not,"
he would say to his friends on the oth
er side, "have succeeded without It."
"The rebels," Gage wrote a week nf-
ter the battle, "are shown not to be the
disorderly rabble too many have sup
posed. In all their wars against the
French they have showed no such con
duct and perseverance as they do now,
They do not see that they have ex
changed liberty for tyranny. No peo
ple were ever governed more absolute
ly than the American provinces now
are; and no reason can be given for
their submission but that It is a ty
ranny which they have erected them-
Bunker Hill exhibited the Americans
to all the world as a people to be
courted by allies and counted with by
foes.- It was a marvel that so many
armed citizens had been got together
so quickly and still a greater marvel
that they had stayed together so long,
Mov Forced on British.
After the engagement at Lexington
on April 19 the British force under
Qeneral Gage was Increased to 10,000
men by the arrival of Generals Howe,
Clinton, and Burgoyne with their com
nonds from Kngland. These occupied
the town of Boston on a peninsula ex
tending Into the harbor. The naval
Forces consisted of the Falcon, Lively,
Somerset, Symmetry, Glasgow, and
four floating batteries. Across the
Dharles river, at Cumhridge, and on
'.he surrounding hills, were encamped
etween 10,000 and 20,000 nndlscl
)llned Americans. The British, thus cut
rff from communication with the main
land, were seriously hampered for pro
visions, and Generul Gage contem
plated a movement to occupy the sev
eral heights near Charlestown, at Dorchester,-
and adjacent potnts.
The arrival of such a formidable
force of the enemy caused the gravest
concern to the colonists. It was ru
mored that the British would sally forth
from Boston and burn the neighboring
towns. It was to prevent this that the1
Americans determined to fortify Bun
ker Hill ; for, if the British should get
out of the city and Intrench upon Dor
chester Heights to the south of Bos
ton, the Continental position would be

against the fortifications. Confidently
they approached the works of the
Americans, construing the silence on
the hilltop as timidity. They changed
their attitude on this point when they
arrived within a few hundred feet of
the redoubt. The Americans had been
silent, but they had been ordered to
refrain from firing until the command
was given. Thus it was the British,
advancing over the open stretch of
ground, panting from the heat and the
weight of their, knapsacks, heard the
word "Fire I" at the moment of their
supreme confidence, and recoiled before

A deadly Are was poured into the
British columns, the marksmen of the
Americans picking off the officers.
Along the whole line of fortifications,
from the rail fence to the redoubt, the
British troops were soon In retreat.
The British columns advanced a sec
ond time and once more were met with
deadly fire. Now, however, they were
prepared for It; although staggered by
the shock, they soon rallied and con
tinued their advance. The Americans
