Soft, Lustrous Finish
Good Wax Gives to Floors
The attractiveness of the famous "Old
English" finish was due to the soft,
silky lustre through which showed all
the beauty of the wood grain. There
is only one wax today which can
produce that same effect
That's because it contains a greater proportion of hard, imported waxes than
any other prepared wax. That's why the finish lasts, why it spreads farther
is most economical. A 60c can will do the floor-of a large room.
Old English Floor Wax does not get sticky, does not show mars nor scratches,
will not collect dust. Spots which gel most wear caa.be easily refinished by just
rubbing on a little wax no need to move out furniture and do the whole room.

Deal With Corns
In This Efficient, Scientific Way
Don't treat thera in the old ways
as our mothers treated
Don't pare them.
Don't use liquids.
Don't use ancient
forms of plasters.
A famous chemist
has evolved a way to
terminate a corn.
And that way now Is
used to end a million
corns a month.
Simply do this:
Apply a Hlue-jay plaster. Right
from that instant you cease to feel
In 43 hours take of! the plaster and
lift out the corn. No pain, no soreness,
no discomfort. And the corn is Rime
It seems almost impossible. Yet
35,000 corns a day are taken out in this
way. And you can prove it iu two
days, at a cost of IS cents.
A In tlio picture Is the soft B & B wax. It loosens tho corn.
B stops the pain and keeps the wax from spreading.
C wraps around the toe. It is narrowed to be comfortable.
D is rubber adhesive to (astcn tho plaster on.

the rogues who caught thorn napping most
umloiihti'dly have sprung from the highest
circles of society. This satisfies their
amour proprr, and may eahn the appro
honsions of their financial hackers, should
tlipy liapon to he trading with borrowed
capital. So tho foolish legend of the gen
tleman thief is fostered and propagated.
Hut the cruel limelight of the Anthropo
metric Department promptly chases away
these aristocratic illusions.
Doubtless you hae never heard of
"Monsieur Hob." Well, long before po
lice dogs were invented, a jeweler whose
store was in tho Palais Koyal, had trained
a little poodle to perform a very useful de
tective work. Less sure of his own judg
ment than were somo of his colleagues, ho
placed absolute faith in the olfactory pen
otrativoncss of his pet. It is unnecessary
to insist upon the details. Sullico it to
say that when a new customer entered the
store, Monsieur Hob had a sniff at his or
her shoes. No patent leather, however
now. was proof against this canine in
quisition. A sharp yelp, and Monsieur
Hob's master was lunde privately aware
of the personal habits of the "aristo
crat" with whom he was dealing.
There remains to be considered a special
typo of criminal rufliau, who without any
pretense to nn exalted social origin, or
even elegance of manners, often possesses
both enterprise and courage, l'rauzini,
guillotined iu Paris some years ago for
robbing and murdering a demi-mondaine,
was thoroughly representative of this
class of cosmopolitan adventurer ran
laquitutrcs, as the Parisians call them.
Pranzini was bora in Alexandria, of Ital
ian parents, and was merely an interpreter
by profession, but his success in fem
inine circles was amazing. Incredible ns
it may seem, the police, after his arrest,
acting with the consent of the judicial
authorities, handed hack to a young Ca
nadian lady, who moved in the best so
ciety, and was of irreproachable charac
ter, an amorous correspondence which she
j had carried on with Pranzini, every line
of which displayed an infntuation, com
bined with an ignorance of the world
which simply took one s breath away.
Perhaps the most striking feature of her
letters, in which she unburdened nil the
secrets of her heart, and related her ex
istence from day to day, was the indignant
stress that she laid upon the corruption
and moral dangers of Paris! Only pas
sion, however, could have blinded her to
the fact that this big, strong male, (f de
cline to say that he was handsome), whom
she made a hero of, and treated as a cul
tivated gentleman, had the soul of a brute,
and was incapable of appreciating, as she
fondly supposed, the poetry and literature
of the languages which it was his profes
sion to interpret. Classical education has
the incontestable merit of creating and
holding together tho most liberal and in
ternational of aristocracies, to which the
professional malefactor can never aspire.
A S one of the rare exceptions to which
every rule is subject, 1 will cite Prado,
who like Pranzini, was both a robber and
a murderer, but was infinitely superior to
him from tho point of view of education.
In fact, his intellectual attainments were
nothing less than amazing. Tho fierce
eloquence, of his defense before tho Assize
Court disturbed tho equanimity even of
the lawyers who wero prosecuting him,
and left an ineffaceable impression on the
memories of thoso who heard it. In spite
of all his efforts, and by very reason of
tho surprise occasioned by his transcend
ent talents, the verdict against him was
pitiless. Tho proofs of his crimo wero
overwhelming, and the greater the gifts
with which Nature had endowed him, the
more guilty and the more dangerous to
society did he seem to be. His real origin
has always remained a mystery. It was
widely believed that ho was the natural
son of the President of a South American
How did tho "gentleman burglar"
come to be invented f To answer this
question, we must go back to the period
of social upheaval which at the end of tho
eighteenth and the beginning of tho nine
teenth centuries accompanied and followed
the great French Revolution. In the gen
eral confusion caused by the abdication of
Napoleon, a most singular impostor arose.

hnous even to this day, having murdered
