call for recruits went out yesterday
and enlistment of as many desirable
men as can be obtained will be made
tomorrow night at the- Armory and
during each night of the week.
Possible field service in Mexico is one

does not occur at once, the belief is
greneral in well-informed military cir
cles that intervention is Inevitable
sooner or later. It is for this reason
that the filling up of the ranks is be
T Inducements Are Attractive.
"War or no war, however, the recruit
ing officers have a number of attrac
tive inducements to offer to young men
who wish to enter the citizen soldiery.
Extensive field maneuvers have been
decided upon for July, in the event the
troops are not In active service by that
time. . 'The Third Oregon Infantry has
been assigned to operate with the
Twenty-first United States Infantry In
the maneuver campaign. Guardsmen
will be allotted ten days under canvas
at some point not yet determined upon,
within 15 miles of Portland. They will
receive full pay from the Government
together with all their expenses.
Another inducement is the near ap
proach of the outdoor rifle practice
season. With the finest target range
west of the Rocky Mountains located
12 miles south of Portland on the
Southern Pacific Railway the Third In
fantry riflemen are afforded excep
tional advantages for rifle practice.
Kifles, ammunition, transportation and
even meals are furnished without
charge each Sunday at the range and
every effort is matte to develop each
man into a crack shot.

The regiment Is also preparing for
an ambitious trip early next year, when
the entire command will be taken to

as well as their expenses on this trip.

THE captivating grace of tone and
ethereal beauty of nuance and ln-
moves an audience under the spell of
the Flonzaley Quartet, which will visit
Portland April 27, is due to complex
and singularly interesting causes. First
of all, four men peculiarly attuned by
genius and that incomprehensive en
tity known as personal affinity en
tered into a bond of strong and endur
ing musical friendship. An intimate
affection and sympathy with one an
other's highest conceptions of art and
human emotion was the foundation of
this union. Stronger than any tie of
mere patriotic feeling was this bond
of devotion to music as the expression
of emotional appeal to all humanity,
for these men hailed from three coun
tries of Europe, Italy, Belgium and
A' rich American patron of mhslc
with many millions at his rommand
and a ' Summer home In Switzerland
discovered the unusual genius and af
finity of these four men, and carefully
nurtured the union by a generous en
dowment, which not only gave them
the use of priceless treasures - in
stringed instruments, each, one of
which is worth a fortune, but also en
abled them to devote themselves heart
and soul to creating a new - standard
for the world in quartet playing.
Refusing all offers to appear as so
loists to teach, or to play in orchestra,
they have chosen the rare and fasci
nating art of quartet-playing as their
exclusive life work.
The history of music has known three
famous string quartets the Joachim
Quartet, founded by the great violin
ist of that name in 1S69; the Kneisel
Quartet, of Boston, and the Flonzaley
Quartet, of Iake Geneva, Switzerland.
Of these, the Flonzaley Quartet rep
resents the latest development of this
most enchanting phase of art.
Under direction of Lois Steers-Wynn
Coman this famous string quartet will
be heard at the Heilig Theater Monday,

Manhattan Miss Finds From Baron von
llrltmullrr That No One Really
Loves But Once.
NEW YORK, April IS According to
Baron von- Heittnuller no one really
loves more than once in a lifetime. Ac
cording to Miss Alice Johnston, of Man
hattan, this belief of the Baron's is
quite correct. Both having arrived at
this momentous conclusion, there will
be a wedding in Savannah that will
make Miss Johnston the Baroness von
The Baron is a bachelor, although
he proposed to Miss Johnston for the
first -time" n less than 20 years ago.
She, he believed, was the only woman
in the. world for him, and if he could
not. have her he Would remain single
for the rest of his days.
Twenty years ago Miss Johnston was
not quite so sure that a woman might
have only one real love, and besides
the Baron was rich at that time and she
had a queer aversion - to marrying
wealth. ' According to her own state
ments she was determined to marry a
poor man. and the fact that the Baron
had unlimited- wealth precluded the
possibility of a match.
So 20 years passed away and each
year brought with It a proposal from
the Baron and each. proposal or rather
19 of them received a negative reply.
Last Saturday Miss Johnston, then
living in. the Saxonia Apartments on.
upper Broadway, received, her annual
proposal. Instead 'of coming from Ger
many, as in past years, it -came from
Savannah and it carried wtth it the
announcement that it would be the last.
The message stated that the Baron's
wealth, which had been invested in
oil. lands in Mexico, had been shat
tered as a result of the. present rev
olution and he was making his 20th
proposal with the knowledge that he
would not be able to support a wife
unless things took a miraculous change
for the better.
To 'this final appeal Miss Johnston
capitulated and sailed yesterday on the
Savannah line steamship City of Savan
nah, first telegraphing the Baron that
his proposal, had been accepted.
After the wedding the couple will
brave the terrors of Mexico in an en
deavor to retrieve the Baron's fortunes.

Spanish Refugee Says General
Will Not Join Huerta. .

All foreigners Protected and Even
- Those Banished Are Xot Treated
Badly, Asserts Miss Arrieta,
Here From Torreon.
Miaa Luisa Arrieta. a Spanish ref
ugee from Mexico, reached Portland
yesterday morning with ber sister.
Mrs. Roy W. Kesl. who had made the
journey down to Torreon to bring: her
to safety. They brought first-hand
news of the situation in Mexico and
grave interesting; sidelights on their ex
perience. Mr.. Kesl. who lives on Council Crest,
Is an employe of the -O.-W. R. & N
Company, but formerly was in Mexico,
where his wife's relations still reside.
Miss Arrieta speaks nothing but her
native tongue, Spanish, and Mr. Kesl
acted as Interpreter.
'After General Villa had taken Tor
reon. which is a. city ot about 30,000
Inhabitants, he ordered all Spanish,
with few exceptions, to leave in 24
hours. The reason for that is because
the Spaniards as a whole are on the
side ot Huerta. A train consisting of
two ordinary passenger coaches and
some express coaches carried out be
tween 900 and 1000 Spaniards. . MUs
Arrieta said that they were not badly
treated, but that there was nothing but
water on the train and the journey to
El Paso took two days instead of the
regulation 24 hours.

case of war. unless America invaded
In answer to the query, "What Is
the likelihood, in the event of Car
ran za becoming president, that Villa
may revolt against his master and at
tempt to gain power?" Miss Arrieta
said that Villa certainty at present had
no apparent desire for such an office,
that he admitted himself illiterate and
ill-fitted for politics, and content to
manage the military. Car ran xa, she
said, was a peace-loving business man.
and the consensus of opinion seemed to
b that If the rebels were successful,
as she expected, then Carransa would
hold the reins of Madero's unexpired
term only until the country was peace

Villa's Order Obeyed.
Except where non-combatants were
strictly in the line of fighting and In
that way were hurt or their property
damaged. Miss Arrieta said that 'there
was absolutely no loot, no Ill-treat
ment. Villa had given orders that
anyone captured in the act of looting
or ill-treating non-combatants was to
be shot straightway, and his orders
were feared and obeyed.
The manner in which Villa came to
take up arms against Huerta la Inter

had given orders to Villa, which he
carried out, wrongly or disobeyed.

BE PRETTY! TURN
GRAY HAIR DARK
Try Grandmother's old Favorite
Recipe of Sage Tea and
Almost everyone knows that Sage Tea
and Sulphur, properly compounded,
brings back the natural color and lustre
to the hair when faded, streaked or
gray; also ends dandruff, itching scalp
and stops falling hair. Years ago the
only way to get this mixture was to
make it at home, which is mussy and
troublesome. Nowadays, by asking at
any drug- store for "Wyeth's Sage and
Sulphur Hair Remedy," you will get a
large bottle of this famous old recipe
for about 60 cents.
Don't stay gray! Try it! No one can
possibly tell that you darkened your
hair, as tt does it so naturally and
evenly. You dampen a sponge or soft
brush with It and draw this through
your hair, taking one small strand at
a time: by morning the gray hair dis
appears, and after another application
or. two, your hair becomes beautifully
dark, thick and glossy. Adv.
