Fearing that he might not receive

on November 2, last year, and last night
he was in the Multnomah County Jail,

The prisoner was buyer for his father's
According to Block's story, as told to
Assistant United States Attorney Gold
stein yesterday, he was married the
month following the entry of the United
States into the war. As time passed
he read in the papers that newly mar
ried men would be drafted and par
ticularly that young men of wealth
would have no chance to escape serv
ice. This preyed on his mand, and last
November he drew $10,000 from the
bank, took his bride and fled The
couple visited Minneapolis, St. Paul,
Seattle, Portland and San Francisco.
Last May, in San Francisco, a baby
girl was bom.
Mrs. Hart, mother of the young Mrs.
Block, was advised that the baby was

From This District, and Candidate

I have not been called for service in
the Army and If I should be that fact
would not in any way interfere with
my race for Congress.
Tour Congressman will serve you or
your exploiters. Your vote will deter
mine which.
Last election I received 28,000 votes;
McArthur 34,000; the Democrat only
9000, which shows that I am the logical
candidate against McArthur now.
If elected I will support Wilson on
every vote. .
Break the stranglehold of the money
trust by giving to Uncle Sam equal
banking privileges with Rockefeller
and Morgan.
Open entire O. & C. land grant, with
the trees growing thereon, for homes.
Government ownership will make
shipbuilding ' permanent in Portland.
Nothing less will.
McArthur voted against the President
on the 8-hour law and the water power
bill. He has voted with the big Inter
ests on every occasion. The fact that
McArthur has misrepresented you for
two terms does not entitle him to a
third term. Don't wait till 1920 to elect
a Congressman who will serve you.

Bitro-Phosphate, the Organic Substance
Discovered by French Scientist, Excites
Interest of American Physicians
New York. The discovery of an or
ganic phosphate which when taken into
the human system is quickly converted
Into healthy body tissue, is regarded
by medical specialists as of vital Im
portance to people who suffer from ail
ments directly or Indirectly due to de
pleted nervous vitality, such as neuras
thenia, nervous weaKness. ininness.
premature old age. insomnia, lack of
energy, nervous debility, etc
Thinness and weakness are usually'
due to starved nerves. Our bodies need
more phosphate than is contained in
modern foods. Physicians claim there
Is nothing that will supply this defi
ciency so well as the organic phos
phate known among dnrggists as bitro
phosphate, which is inexpensive and is
sold by most all druggists under a
guarantee of satisfaction or money
back. By feeding the nerves directly
and by supplying the body cells with
the necessary phosphoric food elements,
bitro-pnosphate quickly produces a
welcome transformation in the appear
ance; the increase in weight frequently
being astonishing.
Clinical tests made in St. Catherine's
Hospital, N. Y. C, showed that two
patients gained in weight 23 and 27
pounds, respectively, through the ad
ministration of this organic phosphate;
both patients claim they have not felt
as fetrong and well for the past twelve
This increase in weight also carries
with it a general improvement in the
health. Nervousness, sleeplessness and
lack of energy, which nearly always
accompany excessive thinness, soon
disappear, dull eyes become bright, and
pale cheeks glow with the bloom of
perfect health.
Physicians and hospitals everywhere
are now recognizing its merits by its
use in ever increasing quantities. Fred
erick Kolle, M. D., editor at New York
Physician's "Who's Who," says: "Bitro
Phosphate should be prescribed by
every doctor and used in every hospital
to increase strength and nerve force
and to enrich the blood."
Jos. D. Harrigan, Former Visiting
Specialist to North Eastern Dispensa
tory, says: "Let those who are weak,
thin, nervous, anaemic or run - down,
take a natural, unadulterated strength
and tissue building substance such as
bitro-phosphate' and you will soon see
some astonishing results in the increase
of nerve energy, strength of body and
mind and power of endurance."
CAUTION: Although Bitro - Phos
phate is unsurpassed for relieving
nervousness, sleeplessness and general
weakness, owing to its . remarkable
flesh-growing properties, it should not
be used by anyone who does not desire
to put on flesh. Adv.
