for the 1917 convention.
The realtors of Aberdeen launched
thoir campaign for the convention at
the organization meeting in Portland
last Julyi, and every indication -points
to their success. The Seattle realty
men have agreed to support Aberdeen,
and while Eugene is still regarded as
a. candidate it is thought probable that
Aberdeen will gain the majority vote
of the committee on the ground that
this year's meeting should go to the
state of Washington.
300 Members to Be Elected.
The executive committee will be
called to order at 10 o'clock tomorrow
morning by F. E. Taylor, of Portland,

luncheon. Frank L. McGuire. the new
president, will preside over that body
tomorrow for the first time.
All of the visiting delegates as well
as the Oregon officers of the Interstate

' F. K. Taylor at a banquet to be given
at the Hotel Multnomah tomorrow
nljrht. The meeting place for the 1917
convention will be chosen either at
the morning or afternoon session to
morrow, and definite plans will be for

Faul A. Cowgill, of Portland, secre

arrange to move his office temporarily
to the convention city for a period of
two or three weeks Immediately pre
ceding the convention. Mr. Cowgill
now is sending a list of 4000 letters to
real estate men throughout the North
west inviting them to become members

An Enemy in Ambush
(BY DR. M. C. LUCAS.) -
It was not until the discovery by Sir
Arthur Garrod, in 1848, that the blood
of gouty patients contained uric acid
in an excessively large amount, that
much attention was paid to this sub
ject. Later scientific men learned that
in gout (also true in rheumatism) the
kidneys do not work properly to throw
off the uric acid poison; consequently
uric acid crystals are deposited in and
aDout the Joints, where an inflamma
tion is set up in the nearby tissues
When for any reason the circulation is
sluggish, as in the Joints of the toes,
crystals formed from uric acid are de
posited there, and one suffers from
gout; or, when deposited in the tissues
one suffers from muscular rheumatism
or articular rheumatism. My only med
icine to counteract the uric acid and
to throw it out of the system is tab
lets of Anuric (double strength), three
times a day.
The pain in the back, lumbago, pain
in the neck, creaky Joints, stifness In
muscles, have all been proven to be
caused by uric acid poison in the blood
' and tissues. The kidneys Boon become
diseased, then there often follows dls
ease in the muscles of the heart.
K-idney disease carries away a large
percentage of our people. What Is to
be done? What can the ordinary person
oo to properly Dalance bodily health'
The answer is easy. Eat less meat, ea
coarse, plain food, with plenty of vesre
tables, drink plenty of water between
meals and take an uric acid solvent
before meals for a while, such as Anuric
(double strength), obtained at almost
any drug store. It was first discovered
by Dr. Pierce, of the Surgical Institute
in Bijffalo, N. Y. "Moet everyone trou
bled with uric acid finds that Anuric
dissolves the uric acid as hot water will

the fact that many other celebrities
have entered pictures. Miss Elliott has
never had a desire to Invade the cinema
world. To all of the companies which
have sought to entice her she has
resolutely said, "No." '
The Goldwyn officers had several sur
prises during the last moment of their
negotiations with this famous beauty.
They asked what furnishings she
wished for her dressing-rooms, what
type of motor she preferred to convey
her to the studio, and other Questions
of the same sort.. Even the upstarts
of the film business are very par
ticular about these details. But Miss
Elliott was not interested at all.
All of us in Europe have seen so
much that is distressing, so much that
is chastening, so much that adjusts
any sane man or woman's perspective
