Ouch I ? I ? I I This kind of rough
talk will be heard less i ere in town if
people troubled with corns will follow
the Blmple advice of this Cincinnati
authority, who claims that a few drop,
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 freetone 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 American
women will welcome this announce
ment since the Inauguration of tho

SOLDIERS ARE NOT
MADE IN SCHOOLS
Training in All Countries Found
to Be Only Preliminary
FOUNDED UPON PATRIOTISM
Uncle Sam's Investigator, Find Thai
It I, Not Regarded as a Substitute
-'.' fer Physical Training, but a.
Although each European nation post
sesses Its own system of military
training of school youths, adopted tcj
the specific conditions and purposes oi
the movement in each particular In
stance, a certain similarity of origirj
and organization of these movements'
may be observed, according to expert,
of TJncTe Sam's bureau of education
who have recently .looked very care
fully into this matter us being of spe
cial interest to educators of the United
States at this time.
In most cases It was found that the;
source of the movement could l)d
traced to the department of education
and patriotic organizations of citizens,
Where military Instruction Is not an,
obligatory part of (he public school
Curricula, It Is promoted In the form
of student organizations under the
leadership of patriotic clubs and aldi
ed by government grants and by the
lense of government property. In
those countries where the governments'
are not directly active In this work It
often arises spontaneously, it was;
found, under the guise pf seml-rallltaryi
Training Only Preliminary.
As a result of the study made by
the experts It was found that military
Instruction, of the exact nature and tq
the same extent as that given to soK
dlers Is not found In the schools of
any country of Europe except the spe
cial military schools. Such training Is
confined everywhere to the period of
active service, and no attempt has
ever been inade to Impose upon the
school the task of producing fully
trained soldiers. In many countries
having universal military service the
public schools provide for training boys
in such elements of military science
as may be conveniently combined with
their physical training and at the
sume time prepare them for the active
service awaiting every young man.
Tho attitude of foreign educators, it
was found, Is well defined On this mat
ter. They do not, ns a rule, regard
the military Instruction ns a success
ful substitute for the well established
systems of physical training and char
acter building. They generally view It
as nn anomaly In the school system,
justified only by the exigencies of na
tional defense. The enthusiastic sup
port they lend to this work comes more
from patriotic rather than from peda
gogic motives, according to those ex
perts who have Just completed this
study. Occasionally, however, the ben
eficial effects of military training up
on the moral and physical sides of
boys' education are emphasized. Very
marked results of this nature have
been observed In Australia.
Not Physical Training.
In France, where military training
Is a component part of the prescribed
program of public primary schools, It
Is not approved by trading educators
as n method of phy.'eal training, but
It Is recognized and commended ns
preparatory training for military serv
ice, Intended to raise tho efficiency of
the French army. The programs of
public schools In Frunce Include gyui
nastiCS and moral Instruction, the for
mer ns a means of building up the
physique of the boys rind the latter
of developing their character. It Is
generally recognized that these two ob
jects of education cannot be perfectly
uttnlned by any system of military
It Is a significant feature of all mill
turlstlc movements affecting thd
schools Unit they appear wherever ana
whenever special need Is felt for rais
ing the standard of the military pre
paredness of the nation. In France
the movement was started after the
disastrous war of 1870 and revived ut
ter the reduction of the term of active
service in 11)05. In Austria Intensive
nllltury work lu the schools was
launched after u similar reduction of
the term of service. In Switzerland
and Australia It accompanied the in
troductlon of an abbreviated system of1
universal military service. During thd
period from 1008 to lfll-l, when appre
hension of the oncoming European con
flict was keen among the nations of
the continent, the training of school
