Gerard paid his final respects this af
ternoon to the Imperial Chancellor, Dr.
von Bethmann-Hollweg; and the Secre

in friendly semi-political conversation
which he iater characterized as par
He tten returned to the Embassy
and supervised the last details for his
departure. Most of the neutral diplo
matic representatives had called on
Ambassador Gerard for brief visits and
he prepared to return as many of these
calls as possible before leaving-.
Mr. Gerard received the American
correspondents, some of whora'ara staying-
here temporarily, and had a con
fidential chat with them. -He an
nounced only for publication that he
had left with a committee of distin
guished Germans named by him 400,
000 marks, this money being the "Ger
ard fund" collected durlngr his recent
visit to the United States and that he
intends to stop at Berne for three or
four days for anticipated Instructions.
All day the American Embassy re
sembled a house during the process
of Spring- house-cleaning.
Various attaches and employes, who
will now scatter to all the corners of
Europe or return to the United States,
were buey with farewells.
When the final details of the pack
ing were finished the old Wilhelraplatz
looked forlorn. In response to a noti
fication of the Foreign Office, all
Americans going on the Embassy train
to Switzerland gathered at the Ann alt
station between 8 and 11 o'clock this
morning with their personal effects,
more or less encompassed In from, one
Buitcase to ten trunks.
The examination of the baggage by
the military and customs authorities
was arranged for Berlin rather than at
th Bwlss border by special courtesy.
It was superintended by officials of
the Foreign Office. The examination,
although careful, was marked with the
greatest courtesy and was concluded
The moving of personal belongings to
the railway station was not without
Its humorous side. Taxicabs are rare
ties nowdays and Americans who had
been in Berlin for years had to trans
port their household property and per
sonal belongings oftentimes by make
shift methods decrepit horse cabs and
The gathering of Americans with the
resultant flow to English in public
failed to cause the slightest ripple of
excitement among the residents of Ber
lin, who today, as ever since the be
ginning of the break with America,
maintained a studied courtesy.

night tightened the gap between them
and the Seattle league-leaders of the
Pacific Coast Hockey Association by
handing tha Spokane Canaries an S-to-1

An Antidote for
(BY DR. C L. BABCOCK.)
There Is a process going on within
the body which often poisons us. It Is
something like the story of the snake
being able to kill itself with its own
poisons. This is the formation of uric
acid in excess within the body. It is a
waste product which takes place in the
liver. This poisonous uric acid is then
passed on to the kidneys, which act as
a filter to pass off and excrete this
poison. If the kidneys are clogged no,
Inactive, the poison degenerates these
organs and causes kidney disease. If it
is deposited in the tissues, around the
joints of the body, it causes rheumatism
Consequently wo must do everythln
to throw off this uric acid poison, and
simple methods are best. Flush the
kidneys by drinking plenty of water
between meals; a pint of hot water
morning and night is splendid. Take
Anuric (double strength) three times
a day for a while and get the kidneys
to working by flushing out this poison.
That painful affliction, known as gout.
as well as muscular rheumatism, 1
caused by the uric acid crystals being
deposited in the big toes or tissues. The
man who uses his brain, perhaps over
taxing his nervous energy, will suffer
fits of blues, depression, headache,
nleeplessness, loss of memory, all duo to
the poison of urlo acid. The man who
does physical work, using his mus
cles, occasionally complains of slug'
gishness, muscular tired feeling, mus
cular stiffness or aches, neuralgic
twinges symptoms all due to this uric
acid accumulation. In every case I ad
vise hot water, und Anuric taken three
times daily a simple, safe remedy,
which Is to ba had at almost every drug
