Archbishop Ireland deserves es pec^il commendation for hisser m0 » delivered on Sunday at the «<»»«» Catholic cathedral in St. Minn. Ordinarily it would ion on the part of a seen p..,,i 1 be jlltnl , lar newspaper t<> concern itself svitli tlie sermon of u priest or minister of religion to Iiis congre gation, lint Archbishop Ireland's sermon was a special discourse dealing witli great matters ot Na tional and church concern and the duty of the citizen and the Cath olic. The archbishop took occasion to rebuke "the fiery zeal in defense of Catholic interests" which seems to be prevalent among certain classes of American Catholics and to be directed against the government because of its actions iti its depend encies where there are large Cath olic interests. Bishop Blenck of Porto Rico, he points out, makes no complaint against the American government. The hierarchy in Cuba, he states "are thanking God that church interests were settled by the government at Washington before a Cubau parliament was allowed to sit down in Havana." Leo-'XllI himself, the sovereign pontiff, the archbishop concludes, is attending to the question of the friars in the Philippines, having transferred the negotiations from Rome to Manila. Many democrats agree with the republicans that the removal of the friars from the Philippines would be a good thing. If the republican policy prevails and the islauds are to be retained, the re moval of the friars is desirable be cause they are pro-Spanish and are liked neither by the natives uor the Americans. If the democratic policy prevails aud the islands are not retained, the Americans will have done the Filipinos a service in relieving them of the friars, who should, of course, be compensated for their lands and their places filled by other Roman Catholic Clergy. But Archbishop Ireland deserves commendation for the position he takes with regard to mixing up religion and politics. His positon is that of the constitution of the United States, which separates church and state. Says the arch bishop : Nothing is to be more dreaded in America than hatred and warring among citizens in the name of re ligion, and it behoovos all classes of the population to do their ut most to nurture and maintain peace and harmony. Agitation among Catholics as Catholics in America concerning political questions, even though they touch the interests of the church, is to be deprecated. Arch bishop Ireland points out that Catholic interests have not been jeopardized, but have been care fully protected by the government. Even if this were not so, opposi tion to the government must be made by Catholics as citizeus, not as religionists. While the arch bishop points out that Catholic in terests have been respected by the government aud that they have 110 reason for agitation, even if that were the proper remedy, he leaves them free to oppose the adminis tration for political reasons, aud democratic Catholics, just as demo crats of other religions, see such reasons in abundance.— Houston rost. • LOSING In summer can be prevented by taking Scott's Emulsion Its as beneficial In summer r.-3 In winter.

ROOSEVELT AT POINT Of- BAYONET The story of how Anthony S. Brennan, a Trenton lawyer and National Guardsman, held up the carriage containing Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt and other ladies at the bayonet's point at Sea Girt last Thursday became public to-day. Brennan was one of the detail chosen to guard the Governor's cottage during the visit of the President and his party. When the carriage containing Mrs. Roosevelt and other ladies of the Presidential party was returning from the review of the troops, Brennan halted the equipage as it reached the inclosure, and, leveling his bayonet, commanded Mrs. Roosevelt to produce a pass. Iu answer to Brennan's demand the President's wife made known her identity, but his commanding officer had told the young militia man that no one was to cross the line without a pass, and he refused to allow Mrs. Roosevelt to be driven on. The coachman several times tried to force his way through the line, but Brennan was there with the bayonet, which he planted against the driver's stomach. One of the staff officers noticing the trouble, came to the party's rescue, and after vouching for Mrs. Roosevelt' and assuming all responsibility in case there was trouble, Brennan ordered Mrs. Roosevelt to pass on, saluting with due military ceremony as she passed. Brennan wanted a chance to apologize to Mrs. Roosevelt when he thought over the incident said, inasmuch as he was simply obeying orders, Mrs. Roosevelt was so much a soldier's wife that she would not look for an apology. A Worm Killer. J. A. J. Montgomery, Puxica, Wayne Jo., Mo., writes: "I have little twin girls, who have been bothered witli worms all their lives. 1 tvieil everything to re lieve them which failed until I used White's Cream Vermifuge; the first two doses brought four worms from one of them, the next two doses, twelve, one of them measuring twelve inches; the other child was only relieved of four worms. It is a most excellent medicine." White's Cream Vermifuge is good fur children. It not only destroys worms, it helps the child to perfect growth, wards off sickness. 25c at Est orge Drug Co FIVE HUNDRED HEIRS CLAIM A HUGE FORTUNE Reading' Pa., Aug. 2.—At a meeting of the Spang heirs to-day five hundred presented affidavits of ancestry.

Poor blood allows the body to lose vitality just as a poor fire under the boiler allows the steam to run down. From poor blood to impure blood is but a step, and impure blood is mother to a large percentage of human ills. Dr. Harter's Iron Tonic is an antidote for both poor and impure blood, for it is both a builder and purifier — a food and a medicine. It is the best combi nation of the kind known to medical science, and its success for nearly half a century has led to its endorsement by thousands of medical men who have been unable to find a substitute. Dr. Harter's Iron Tonic wilt insure you auainst the many evils resulting from impure blood. Scrofula, pimples, blotches, kidney disorders, rheumatism, gout, dyspepsia, female weakness, anasmia, chlorosis, etc., are a few of them: but the greatest evil, the greatest danger, is the general weakening of the whole system, which affords an opening for every passing disease. The following is only one of the thousands Ot testimonials we have received; Detroit, Mich., Jan 10, 1901. "I commenced using L)r. Harter's iron Tonic when prostrate from a severe attack of rheuma tism. After using three bottles all traces of this disease were completely eradicated from my system, and my general health was restored. As a blood puritier Dr. Harter's Iron Tonic has no equal, and I most sincerely recommend it to all persons suffering from indigestion, fatigue, rheumatism, and the many weakened conditions of the system produced by impover ished blood."
