That is what the government sent last year to make the soldiers' and sailors' feet comfortable and fit for the kind of war they fought and finished.

IN PEACE AND WAR for over 25 years Allen's Foot-Ease, the Antiseptic, Healing Powder for the Feet, to be shaken into the shoes and sprinkled in the foot-bath, has been the standard remedy for all aching, swollen, hot, tired feet, blisters and sore spots and for the instant relief of corns, bunions and callouses.

Thousands of people sent packages of Allen's Foot-Ease to their sons, brothers or sweethearts in the army and navy, because they knew from experience that it would freshen and rest their feet, make their shoes comfortable and walking easy. Those who use Allen's Foot-Ease have solved their foot troubles.

What Is Nerve Force?


UNITED? The Outlook of July 9 publishes an article by Everett P. Wheeler, under the heading “ Common Sense about Ireland,” to which, with your kind permission, I wish to say a few words in reply.

Mr. Wheeler states that there never was a united Ireland, independent of Great Britain, and to prove this assertion he quotes from Justin McCarthy, the historian, as follows :

“ The island was divided among native chiefs, who concerned themselves mainly about their local interests, and had, no doubt, their natural rivalries.”

This cannot be taken to mean that the people were divided, but evidently refers to the land ; and the fact that the people were concerned about their local affairs proves that they were not engaged in strife or civil warfare.

True, Ireland was divided into four petty kingdoms, but all were subject to one inonarch, called the “Ard Ri,” or King of Ireland, whose seat was at Tara, where also was located the principal Council, or Parliament, which represented the whole nation.

History and legend both record that this form of government lasted several centuries, and unless there was some degree of cohesion and unity among the people it could not possibly have endured for such a length of time.

l'he real disunion in Ireland began with the advent of the Norman barons and their followers, and when her Ulster was latched by religious intolerance which came on the heels of the Reformation, and which has been kept alive and fostered to the present day by every conceivable means as a guard against the danger of unity.

In his brief summary of Irish history Mr. Wheeler cites a number of “indisputable facts,” of which the following are samples, namely: that O'Neil proclaimed himself King of Ulster and was killed in an affray by Scottish settlers; that Edmund Burke was the greatest Irish statesman and advocated the union of Ireland with Great Britain ; and that Grattan's Parliament refused to pass a bill for Catholic emancipation.

O'Neil never proclaimed himself, nor was he proclaimed, King of Ulster. He was a chieftain who fought against the armies of Elizabeth for a period of ten years, till, finally overwhelmed by superior numbers, he escaped to Rome, where he died an exile.

Edmund Burke was an English statesman, and represented the English constituency of Bristol in the English Parliament, was paymaster of the army, and was the recipient of a large pension. I would consider him very foolish to ruin his career and lose his emoluments by advocating Irish freedom.

Grattan's Parliament never discussed a Catholic emancipation bill ; such a measure was never introduced to that body, as it was absolutely unnecessary; the mere fact of the existence of an Irish Parliament acted automatically in the emancipation of the Catholics.

The Act of Union was brought about by coercion, intimidation, and bribery, a transaction stigmatized by Mr. Gladstone as the most shameful and criminal in the annals of history. (See Gladstone's speech on introducing the Home Rule Bill in 1886.)
