at-la, "royah-ry IUp." or "Q" craft Una
Dot boon revealed, It la evident that
several of them were uwd to lure tho
CndiTHfa craft to di-Htructlon.
Soma lucldi-nt In Ihla campaign al
ready have been Hindu known, dealing
chiefly with a few of the exploit of
Cowmuuder Gordon .Campbell a mas
ter of the decoy wsmcI; but other
In which he and other enptuin par
ticipated, now ore available. That at
leant a amnll fleet waa ued In thla
work la evident from the fact that
Campbell at different timet appear
aa tho master of tho KarnboroiiKh, the
1'arKunt, the Dunraven. and tho Q-S.
' The prise, another di'coy ablp, wai
commanded by Lieut William K. Sand
era, and the Stock Force by Lieut
Full of Heroic Deed.
Storle of tho encounter between
then ship and tho U-boat are filled
with deed of herolnm and Instances In
which tho rilxclpllne of the llrltlxh navy
waa dlHptuyed nnder trying circum
stance. For ninny month tbe decoy
ahlpa, henvlly armed, but with their
sun hidden behind false bulwark,
ateatned tljcaig path In the tea which
were the bunting ground of the sub
marine. In their character of buy collier or
alow cargo craft they presented to the
aubmarlno commander an Inviting ob
. joct of attack, but once he wna well
within range of tb Brltlah guna the
false superstructure hiding the gun
fell away and tho hclpte collier be
came auddenly transformed lnto a
flchtltiK craft, bent on dentrmtlon. It
wn OariKernua work, requiring a IiIk'i
order of courage, for the aiilitnurlne
must be ltyed near before the gun
could nfely begin their work. Mean
time the Hun frequently had aent hi
torpedo home, and the decoy ahlp wn
dlmibled, aometlme on flr and part
of her crew wounded. In that condi
tion tho battle wa fought and often
tho milimnrlne destroyed.
"Panic parties" w ono of the rnc
prnctlced by the decoy ahlp't com
mander to coar the auhmorlne nlong
aldo. When the myatery ahlp waa tor
pedoed theao panic partle took to tho
boat, mipareotly abandoning their
veaicd, but nlway leaving on board
atjnther vrew to man tho gun and fin
ish tho submarine If It came near
Tho first encounter mentioned by
the admiralty occurred In March, 1010,
when the FamhorouKh, dlxgulxed a a
collier, waa attacked by a aubraarlne.
The "panic party" took to the boat,
and when the aubmurlne cloned In to
abont 800 yard the PamlxirouKh
opened Ore on her. The U-boat sub-'
merged and the FarnhoroiiKh punned
over her, dropping depth bomb. The
aubmarlno reappeared, atandlng al
most on end. Five round were Bred
Into bur at nearly point-blank range,
and ahe went to the bottom of the
Sunk by Gunfire.
Prior to that action the Farnborough
had crulacd throughout the entire win
ter without being attacked. Within
month tbe Fnrnborough coaxed an
other auhmarlne near enough to alnk
ber by gunfire.
Commander Campbell later waa
transferred to the command of the
Q fi, and In the following February,
101T, hi venae! waa torpedoed by a
aubmnrlne, which eventually ap
proached o near that a ahot from the

URIO ACID IN THE SYSTC
BY LEB II. BM1TH. M. D. .
Urio acid ia now generally recognizee
aa tbe eanae of more diteaeet than wa
heretofore believed. When the kidneyt
are out of order uric acid aecnmnlatea
within the body in taper abundance,
Tbe disordered kidneyt do not filter
we poison out ot the blood, a they
ought to do, and o the poison remain
in the biood and float around until
they find place to lodge, in form of
arute alU. The thing to remember ia
that you may have rheutnatiim in any
part of the body you may have paina
anywhere your back may ache and
your bead may be dizzy- but tbe
trouble ia not where the pain appear.
Tbe trouble is in the kidney, and
what ia the first thing to do T You must
get that exceaa uric acid out of your
system, which can be done by taking
Anurio Tablets, the aplendid remedy
which Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y.,
baa put on sale in tbe drug store at
a low price. Anurio Tablet (made
double strength), when taken into the
system aa medicine, have tbe peculiar
power of dissolving tbe- urio acid de
posited there. Drop a bit of sugar or
alt into hot water, and it will dis
appear. In precisely tbe tame way do
these Anttrio Tablet dissolve uric acid.
Of course, after ridding tbe system of
orfo acid, it may return again nnleea
you eat the right foods and live tha
right kind of life, but Dr. Pierce will
advise you fully on proper food and
correct living if you write and ask
him. He makea no charge for such
advice. Take Annrin Tnhlnt
by al means, and get that uric acid
ou oi your system. Don t, don't,
don't, put tbe matter off. .
