It's like magicl
Sore corns, hard corns, soft corns or

lifted right out with the fingers if you
apply upon the corn a few drops of
freezone, says a Cincinnati authority.
For little cost one can get a small
bottle of freezone at any drug store,
which will positively rid one's feet of
every corn or callus without pain.
. This simple drug dries the moment
it is applied and does not even irri
tate the surrounding skin while ap

This announcement will interest
many of our readers. If your druggist

LESSON FOR OCTOBER 14.
RETURNINu FROM CAPTIVITY.
LESSON TEXT Ezra 1.
GOLDEN TEXT The Lord hath done
great things for ua; whereof wo are glad.
Israel went into captivity because of
her sins. The time of her disciplinary
process was about to end, as its pur
pose was now accomplished: namely,
the cure of Israel's idolatry. Ever
since the Babylonian captivity the He
brew people have been worshipers of
the one God. Monotheism has stood
forth as a vital characteristic The
main reason for the Jews' maintenance
of racial identity in spite of their na
tional dislocation and the breaking up
of their social ties, is the unity of their
faith, around the one God.
I. The Proclamation of Cyrus (vv.
(1) The Time of (v. 1). The first
year of Cyrus; that is the first year
after his conquest of Babylon.
(2) How It Was Brought About (v.
1). The Lord stirred up his spirit.
The Lord often uses very unlikely
agents in the accomplishment of his
purposes. There is nothing too hard
for him. He can readily use a heathen
king to accomplish his purpose. He
can find a way of approach to any
heart. Likely Daniel was the agent
used to bring the matter to the king's
attention. Daniel was still the Influ-
' entlal prime minister of Babylon.
From his study of the prophecies of
Jeremiah (Jer. 23:12rlsa. 45:1; com
pare Daniel 9:2), he knew that the
time was near for the return of the
people to their own land, so he likely
brought the matter to the attention of
the king and persuaded him to thus
favor his people.
(3) Its Contents (w. 2-4).
(a) A confession of the true Ood
(vv. 2, 3).
ne acknowledges him to be the God
of heaven, the Most High, the Supreme
God, a God of goodness. He declared,
"He has given me all the kingdoms of
the earth," and that God had with au
thority laid upon him the charge of
building him a house at Jerusalem.
(b) A Genersus Permission to Israel
(v. 3). All who desired to go up to
Jerusalem and buiid the Lord's house
were permitted to go. He even com
manded the blessing of the Lord to be
(c) A Positive Co-Operation (v. 4).
None were obliged to go up, but a pos
itive obligation was laid upon those
who did not go up to render assistance
to those who did. They were to aid
in the building of the house of God by
giving money, beasts and goods. It
was more than a free-will offering, an
obligation In addition thereto. The ob
ligation was even wider than the peo
ple of Israel. The heather were asked
to render aid.
II. Response to the Proclamation of
Cyrus (vv. 5, 6).
(1) By Israel (v. 5). Strange to say
the decree of Cyrus was not met with
great enthusiasm. Only a smalr num
ber, chiefly from Judah and Benjamin,
returned (v. 5). For most of them It
meant giving up business interests, for
they had settled down to the regular
callings of life. Besides the sacri
fice of business interests it Involved
great risks as to the future. The en
tire company, Including servants, was
about fifty thousand (2:64). Of this
company we note the following divi
sions; first, chiefs of the fathers of
u uuuii uuu jjtriijumiu, uiui io iwuh"
trates; second, priests and Levites,
leaders in religion; third, skillful ar
tificers, head workmen.
(2) By Their Neighbors (v. 6). This
response was apparently more hearty
than that of the Jews themselves.
Their neighbors gave freely of gold, sil
ver, beasts and goods. God had not
only graciously disposed the heart of
Cyrus toward his people, but they
found peculiar favor from their neigh
bors, so that their wants were abund
III. Restoration of the Sacred Ves
sels (vv. 7-11). These vessels had been
carried away to Babylon many years
before. Little did Nebuchadnezzar re
alize that he would put into safe keep
ing the vessels which would be needed
at this time. They were carefully num
bered and turned over to the proper
officers. Except for their desecration
in Belshazzar's feast, they were none
the worst for having been carried away.
These were brought up to Jerusalem
Poverty is only contemptible when
it is felt to be so. Doubtless the best
way to make our poverty respectable
Is to seem never to feel it as an evil.

things for God. and not to mind be
cause they are such very little ones.

Girls! Use Lemons!
Make a Bleaching,
The juice of two fresh lemons strain
ed into a bottle containing three ounces
of orchard white makes a whole quar
ter pint of the most remarkable lemon
skin beautifier at about the cost one
must pay for a small jar of the ordi
nary cold creams. Care should be tak
en to strain the lemon juice through a
fine cloth so no lemon pulp gets in,
then this lotion will keep fresh for
months. Every woman knows that lem
on Juice is used to bleach and remove
such blemishes as freckles, sallowness
and tan and is the. ideal skin softener,
smoothener and beautifier.
Just try itl Get three ounces of
orchard white at any pharmacy and
two lemons from the grocer and make
up a quarter pint of this sweetly fra
grant lemon lotion and massage it dally
into the face, neck, arms and hands. It
naturally should help to soften, fresh
en, bleach and bring out the roses and
beauty, of any skin. It is simply mar
velous to smoothen rough, red hands.
