The National Red Cross organization
here Is a very remarkable one for size,
and system, considering that It Is al
most entirely volunteer. Hundreds of
people pass through their hands In the
course of a day, making applications
for passports, being equipped and In
structed and preparing for departure.
"Many are called but few depart on
time." Through It all, and with many
complaints and many expressions of
dissatisfaction hurled at them, the men
and women In charge of the various
bureaus are always patient and cour
teous and try in every way to lessen
the disappointment of those who fall to
leave on schedule. They are just as
much affected by the war as If they

danger they can move no faster than

MRS. GIXTXER TO WRITE FOR
This Is the first of a series of
letters from Mrs. Edmond C Gilt
ner that are to be published in
The Oregonlan. Mrs. Olltner, who
is a prominent Portland woman,
is now In New Tork on her way
to France, where she will serve
as a Red Cross nurse. She has a
wide acquaintance among Orego

an experienced writer, and her
letters will doubtless be of much

Red Cross Workers Mast Walt.
The activities of the past two weeks
have made It necessary for the Govern
ment to use every available bit of
space for sending over men and sup
plies, and while nurses are more than
ever needed cables come every day
telling of the urgent call the Red
Cross has been able to obtain very few
reservations at any sailing, and there
are waiting in New Tork today proba
bly 200 Red Cross workers men and
women who were expecting to sail as
I was. borne are pleasant and make
the .best of it, while others do a lot of
complaining and are perfectly well as
sured they could run things In a man
ner to do away with all uncertainties!
The result is that they help matters
not a bit and upset their own dispo
sitions. Mr. Greene, chaplain of Base Hos
pital No. 46. got away only after wait
ing two months. Some new ruling re
garding chaplains had gone Into effect
about the time the unit reached Camp
Merrltt and he was detained.' And the
nurses of No. 44 also waited here nearly
two months before sailing, after a
years wait in Portland. One thing

Aeed for Ships Very Great.
The need for ships is very great and
surely never more felt than now; in

WASH THE KIDHXYS I
All the blood in the body passes thru
the kidneys every few minutes.. This if
why the kidneys play crach an important
role in health c? disease. By some mis
tenons process the kidney selects what
traght to come oat of the blood and
takes it out. If the kidneys are not
good-workmen and become congested
peteons accumulate and we suffer from
cart ache, headache, lumbago, rheu
matism or goat. The urine is often
cloudy, fall of sediment ; channels often
get sore and sleep is disturbed at night.
So it is that Dr. Pierce, of the Invalids'
Hotel and Surgical Institute in Buffalo,
N. Y., advises Washing the Kidneys,"
by drinking six to eight glasses of water
between meals and then if you want
to take a harm lees medicine that will
clear the channels and cure the annoy
ing symptoms, go to your neanest drug
gist and obtain Annric (double strength).
This "Annric," which is so many times
more potent than lithia will drive oat
the unc acid poisons and bathe the kid
neys and channels in a soothing liquid.
If you desire, write for free medical
advice and send sample of water for free
examination. Experience has taught
Dr. Pierce that "Annric " is a m-1
