last night that the organization is one
of the liveliest Portland ever boasted
"when it presented a "pumpkin festival"
in the ballroom of the Multnomah
Hotel. The frolic will long be remem
bered not only by those who attended,
but by the poor among whom the pro
ceeds, estimated at $250, will be dis
tributed Christmas time by the club.
The entire exhibition was one of in

entertainments and original make-ups

The decorations consisted of stream

case demanded. The floor. was covered
with sawdust and tobacco smoke gave
an artistic cloud effect.
The attractions were booths built on
the country fair plan, arranged around
the room. Games of chance were the
most popular land there were plenty

Germans in fighting near the : river
Bzura, says: "
"Three German regiments "were
caught with their backs to the river
and suflered heavily from the Russian
artillery, while the Russian infantry
was creeping ever nearer. Their only
way to escape was across tbe river, but
this attempt was frustrated by the
Russian cavalry. Seeing thftr position
was hopeless, the whole force, amount
ing to two and one-half -. regiments,
"The Germa attempt to turn the
Russian flank at Wielun Pass was
expected and checked," says the Times
Petrograd correspondent. "The diffi
culties of the Russian operations in
Poland were enormously aggravated by
the havoc the Germans wrought during
their retreat from Warsaw.
Scene Suggests Earthquake.
"A Ruzsky Slovo correspondent, who
visited the scene, says it is difficult to
find a solitary foot of undamaged rail
way roadbed for miles. The. scene, he
declares, suggests the visitation of a
tremendous . typhoon or earthquake.
The devastation of. the country runs
from Warsaw to near Kutno, where the
destruction becomes less complete.

official Russian reports that the Rus.

A third battle front south of the

to a late dispatch from Petrograd.
An official report issued at Petro
grad tonight says there have been con
tinued Russian successes on the Cra
cow front, wherein November 32-the
Russians took 6000 prisoners.
Strength Unknown to Russians.
The Germans are reported advancing
along this new line from Valioun, and
the Petrograd report admits that the
strength of the column is unknown
there, as the Teutons are being con
tinually shifted along the German
frontier behind these forces.
Battles-on the fronts north of "the
Vistula and between the Vistula and
Warthe are progressing- violently.
In the earlier dispatches no mention
regarding the reported surrounding of
the Galician stronglsold of Cracow was
credited by the general war headquar

Decision Postponed, Says Berlin.
Berlin dispatches give the official
German report regarding the cam
paigns against the Russians, which say
that no decision has resulted In the
battles in Poland. It is asserted that
the Teuton offensive east of Cracow is
progressing and that the Germans are
holding their own against the Rus
sian invasion of East Prussia, but that
Russian reinforcements have delayed
a decision south of Warsaw. '
General Liebert is declared to be in
Berlin and General Tannewitz at the
head of his command. An. official re

officers were prisoners of the Russians.

It is because The Oregonian has a greater hoine
circulation that the wideawake merchants of
Portland and other cities deem it wise to spend
more money use "more advertising space in The
Oregonian than in any other Portland newspaper
, Just think of it. . Every morning there are 192
carriers delivering The Oregonian into Portland
homes. These carriers deliver the papers directly
to the homes. , The city circulation of The Ore
gonian is far iq excess of the city" circulation of
any other Portland paper.
The Oregonian is 1 practically indispensable to
these homes. To the woman of the iome as well
as to the man. The man wants the news of the
- world before he reads the ads. The woman wants
to see the advertisements before she reads the
news of the world. .
The woman of the home controls more than 80
per cent of the family expense account. The ad
vertisements are her guide to . keen buying. She
reads the ads carefully. Then decides where she

to us. Not only is it a spectacular
wholly charming and artistic presenta
tion, but it is inspired of a sound and
vigorous logic and is purposeful.
And the lesson it teaches is as sweet
and wholesome as the bread pills the
doctor gives Gwendolyn. The play has
all the - qualities of homely realities
blended with the gleam and glitter of
romantic allegory. Only it is not alle
gorical. These dreams of the fever-
tossed poor little rich girl seem real
child dreams, with none of the uplifted
mental writhings of a philosopher.
There i3 no pretense at tremendous
wit, but they are delightfully humor
ous and quaint.
Child's Dreams) Staged. .
And they are pathetic The story
has been reprinted often as the stories
of successful plays Invariably are. The
poor little rich girl, a child of luxury,
overdosed by a sleeping potion at the
hands of the "two-faced" nurse, falls
Into a delirum, which brings her close
into the shadows.
The author has brilliantly visualized
the fancies of the sick child's mind
with the actualities of the sick room
and has conjoined the two with imag
inative genius. She personifies and
makes flesh the human attributes of
the father, who is made of money and
makes ducks and drakes of his wealth,
the mother with a social bee buzzlDg in
her bonnet, the governess who Is a
snake in the grass, the two-faced
nurse, the doctor who rides hobbies,
the little bird who is always telling
things, the big ears of the butler, who
hears everything, and they actually
The doctor as the child sees him is
in his riding clothes and rides his
hobby, while he snaps his whip and
measures her height. The doctor as we
see him shakes his thermometer and
takes her temperature. And when he
pulled her through the window of the
Robin Hood barn she has heard of so
often, the audience actually sighed its
relief, for it was symbolical of the
truth that the real doctor was telling
her parents that their poor little rich
girl would "pull through." We knew,
because we had seen that it was des
tined to end happily, that father would
rid himself of his harness and load of
money-making, that mother's social
bee would fly away but none of us
was prepared for the exquisite satire
in having the mimble plumber pick up
the bonnet and follow wildly in the
trail of society. "

The Simplest and Quickest Way
Is to Dissolve It.
- The only sure way to, get rid of dan
druff is to dissolve it. -her you destroy
it entirely. To do this, just get about
four ounces of plain, ordinary liquid
arvon; apply St at night when retiring;
use enough to moisten the scalp and
rub it in gently with the finger tips.
By morning most, if not all, of your
dandruff will be gone, and three or
four more applications will completely
dissolve and entirely destroy every
single sign and trace of it, no matter
how much dandruff you may have.
You will find, too. that all itching
and digging of the scalp will stop at
once, and you hair will be fluffy, lus
trous, glossy, silky and soft, and look
and feel a hundred times better.
If you want to preserve your hair, do
by all means get rid of dandruff, for
nothing destroys the hair more quick
ly. It not only starves the hair and
makes it fall out. but it makes it
stringy, straggly, dull. dry. brittle and
lifeless, and everyone notices It. You
can get liquid arvon at anr drug store.
It is inexpensive and never fails to do
