Dublin, March 12. Cardinal Logue,
in a pastoral letter, says that as any
one of ordinary foresight might have
anticipated, Ireland is not i likely to
reap much good from the labor peace
, The cardinal advises the people to
bear the present drastic militarycode
in" a Christian spirit, and not to ex expose
pose expose themselves recklessly to severe
punishment by needless assemblies or
other practices, reemmbering that
turmoil and discord never promote a
god cause.
'As to drilling, he says a learned
judge lately has termed it tomfoolery,
and that young men might practice
the goose-step to the Greek Kalends
(a day that will never come) and it
never would bring them one step
nearer to freedom. It may seem a
fine thing to pose: as martyrs but
martyrdom, for even a higher and
holier cause,- would have little merit
if ; suffered 'in a spirit of vanity and
display. V'
He solemnly warns the country
against secret societies, the past ex
periences of which in Ireland should
be a sufficient deterrent. Discussing
the movement for secularizing the na
tional schools, Cardinal Logue says
the moment has been chosen skilfully
for springing the plot when themeans
of resistance is crippled seriously, and
when, in pursuance of a policy he
never had ceased j to regard as Un
advised and ruinous, the Irish people
were left almost completely unrepre
sented in parliament.
Referring to the revolutionary so
cialists, he1 says there, is reason to fear
that the plague has. caught hold of
some of the Irish trade unions. An
alliance has been claimed with the
bolsheviki whose blood-stained career
has shocked the sensibilities of Chris
tendom, reviving in an exaggerated
form the worst horrors of the reign
cf terror in the French revolution
a nice alliance truly for holy Ireland,
the cardinal comments.

The legislature of 1915, evidently
dominated by West Florida, selected
Pensacola as the place to hold the
Florida centennial. The Star and a
few other-papers -objected, for the
good reason that Pensacola is at the
far-- end of 'the state, and compara comparatively
tively comparatively few people in the state could
attend it. No1 attention was paid to
the objection, and no attention was
paid to T the, centennial, either, for
when : the date ; arrived one day last
month there was no celebration in
Pensacola' or elsewhere. It would have
been an excellent idea to have had a
centennial celebration at the, South
Florida Fair in Tampa in February
the Star made a" suggestion, to Hhat
effect- -but as the Tampa people did
not decide toj hav the fair until a
few- 'months 'ago' they probably
thought they tad no' time to make the
arrangements. However, .there will

Uric acid is now generally recognized
ft3 the cause of more diseases than was
heretofore believed. When the kidneys
are out of order uric acid accumulates
within, th body in Etroer abundance.
The disorjered kidneys do not filter
the poisons out of the blood, as they
ought to do, and so the poisons remain
in the blood and float around until
they find a place to lodge, in form of
urate salts. The thing to remember is
that you may have rheumatism' in any
part' of the body you may have pains
anywpere your back may ache and
your head may, be dizzy but the
trouble is not where the pain appears.
mi ... a .
jine trouuie is in tne kidneys, and
what is the first thing to do ? You must
get that excess, uric acid out. of your
system, which can be done by taking
Anunc Tablets, the splendid remedy
which Dr- Pierce, of Buffalo, N. 1".,
has put on sale in the drug stores at
a low price. Anunc Tablets ,( made
double strength), when taken into the
system as medicine, have the peculiar
power of-dissolving the uric acid de deposited
posited deposited there. Drop a bit of sugar or
salt into hot water, and it will dis
appear. In precisely the same wav do
these Anuric Tablets dissolve uric acid.
Of course, after ridding the system of
uric acid, it may return again unless
y i eat the right foods and live tha
ngnt kind of life, but Dr. Pierce will
advise yon fully on proper food and
correct living if you write and ask
him. He makes .no charge for such
advice. Take Anunc Tablets to-day,
by aH means, and get that uric acid
out of your system. Don't, don't,
