YVhat is to be done? The answer is easy. Eat less meat, eat coarse, plain food, with plenty of vegetables, drink plenty of water between meals, and take an uric acid solvent after meals for a while, such as Anuric (double strength), obtainable at almost any drug store.

WOULD CRIPPLE INDUSTRIES Saya Plants in Monroe Fields Are Worth Millions of Dollars and Car bon Is Absolutely Necessary Prod uct—Law Would Be a Crime. Baton Rouge.— Senator Leon R. Smith of Caddo precipitated a lively fight in the legis lature when he introduced two bills that affect the carbon industry, one of them vitally so. One of the bills provides that the Department of Con servation shall prevent the wasteful use of natural gas and the other pro hibits the use of natural gas in cases where the product does equal the value of gas consumed. Senator Smith said that he believed legisla tion along the lines of his bill is nec essary in order to prevent waste and the early exhaustion of the gas fields in the state. It is his purpose, he said, to make a hard fight for the passage of the bills. The carbon interes*s will oppose at least one of the bills vigorously on the ground that it would put them out of business and destroy the value of their plants. The carbon people charge that the pipe line inter ests are working against them in or de.r that the pipe lines may be able to control the supply of natural gas. Representative Webb of Ouachita said that he would oppose any meas ure that was intended to cripple or hamper the carbon industry. "The carbon companies that are ope rating in the Monroe district," Mr. Webb said, "invested their money at the solicitation of the Monroe Cham ber of Commerce, and they came to Louisiana in good faith, believing that they would be given fair treatment. Their plants in the Monroe gas field are worth millions of dollars, carbon is an absolutely necessary product and to pass any law that would de stroy the value ®f the property would be a legislative crime. I propose to fight any such legislation." Due to the shortness of the straw berry crop, and being unable to se cure fruit for canning purposes, the Crown Cordial and Extract Company of New York, which put up a plant at Hammond to handle this season's surplus crop, will remove their ma chinery and equipment to California where the company has other plants in operation.

SMALL CLASHES REPORTED Says Sinn Feiners Were in Touch With Germans—Organized Nation alist Attempt Is Being Made To Mislead A .erican Opinion. Ijondon. — The government at last accounts had the Irish situation well in hand. A desperate eleventh hour attempt to turn the tables on the government forces was made by Sinn Feiners, in County Tyrone, while Viscount French's dragnet was gathering in 500 men and women conspirators in the German-Irish revolt plot. A crowd of masked men stormed Barn t out castle, the seat of the Dutte of Abercourt, and made an unsuccess ful search for arms. There has been scarcely any blood shed in the island-wide roundup of plotters. Except for abortive raid of Barncout Castle the only disturban.'c* reported so far took place at Sk.b bereen, where seven Sinn Feiners re sisted constabulary forces that tried to arrest him. One of the protestants is reported to have been shot in the arm. Troops are guarding the government build ings and railways in Cork. A vessel carrying 78 Sinn Fein pris oners left Kingstown, Ireland, says a Dublin dispatch to the Central New* Agency. It is understood the ship is proceeding to Holyhead, Wales. A large crowd cheered as the ship de parted, but the demonstrators were dispersed quietly. The Observer, commenting on the Irish situation, says: "A brave step has been taken in Ire land for grave reasons. Prof. De Va lera, president of the Sinn Fein party, and many other extremists of the same organization were arrested. "The reason is that these avowed separatists and pro-Germans have once more been in treasonable touch with the enemy, despite the leniency with which they were treated after the last Dublin outbreak, revolt an.l sabotage. "The reality and seriousness of this pro-German plea has been known for some time. In view of Admiral voa Capelles assertion that Germany is as sured lor years to come of a steady supply of U-boats which never cease their efforts to get in touch with the Sinn Feiners and separatists, this re peated treason must be put down wich an unflinching hand and prevented from recurring. "Americans, with their inborn ab horrence of disloyal anarchism, hav* hitherto dealt more harshly with pro Gorman conspirators than we have dealt with them on this side of the Atlantic. Nevertheless, an organized nationalist attempt is being made to mislead and prejudice American opin ion with regard to the whole Irish situation. This attempt will undoubt edly be continued until it is met with stem and cool discrimination across the Atlantic. It can only help to serve Germany's game in the nick of Ger many's time. 5,000,000 in France.

Nothing is more important tlmn tak ing the big view of life, especially at the present time, which is a crisis in the world's history. Men nnd women have been too self-centered to be of much use or service to anyone, even to themselves, hut now, if at. no ether time, there must he a settlement of this stage of affairs. Self-centered folk merely consider small events, nnd the natural affronts they take at petty things which are of no moment whatever, cause a loss of big opportunities in the consid eration of these affairs, which are so trivial that they are not worthy a mo ment's notice. The woman who has spent so much time considering what other folks say, and what the world's opinion means in every passing event of her life, has begun to feel that after all "they say" does not count for much, and it is whnt «he is really doing that amounts to anything. If she has any worth what ever. she will make up for lost time by conserving the strength wasted in anxi ety over silly hearsay and concentrate her efforts to accomplish deeds of value and good service.
