GIRL TELLS OF
Fellow Student of Miss Camp
bell, Monmouth, Enlists.
MUCH MISERY WITNESSED
Red Cross Worker, However, Says
Situation Is Slore Calm Now In
London. Where She, an Amer
ican, . Holds Position.
The unusual experiences of Ameri
cans and others in Europe following
the outbreak of the war are related in
a letter received a rew days ago by
Miss Agues Dorothy Campbell, of Mon
mouth, Or., from Miss Arls Jackson, an
American girl, who enlisted in the Eng
lish Red Cross service. Miss Campbell
met Miss Jackson while the two were
studying art in Europe. Miss Campbell
returned recently. She is a graduate
of the University of Oregon.
"When we said good-bye to you,"
reads the letter to Miss Campbell, "we
little thought we should be following
In your footsteps from St. Malo to
London. Even a month ago If anyone
had told me we should spend August
In London, I should have considered
them quite mad. But here we are and
here we have been since August 4, and
here we shall be for, goodness knows
"There is no need to mention the
'awful cause' of this change of plan.
And yet one thinks, talks, dreams and
actually eats nothing but war! '
Offers of Help Recorded.
"Immediately upon our arrival here,
I offered my services to the British
Red Cross Society and they were ac
cepted. So I have been placed at the
head of the inquiry tabla of the Ken
sington branch, and spend every day
from 10 until 5 at the Kensington town
hall. Two girls are under me and my
duties are to see that all offers of help
are properly registered in books.
Also I have to arrange an me
classes which come under the auspices
of the Red Cross such as nursing.
cookinsr. etc. So it means many inter
views with doctors, nurses and people
who are offering their houses for
classes. It also means answering more
foolish Questions than I thought human
brain was capable of devising. But if
I am of any use in this dreadtui time
I am satisfied, and I am certainly stor
inn- ud some interesting experiences.
"Am coming in close contact with
many titled creatures and I find them
Just as human as we are.
Miser? Only Is Left Behind.
"We remained in Parme (a mile from
Bt Malo) until two days after France
declared war. Then we practically fled
to England. It was really too ghastly
to remain there longer. Not a whole
man was left, not a decent horse, not
a motor, only women with Bwollen
faces and stricken eyes. Also not
grain of news filtered through, as the
government had taken over all the
trains, teleeraph wires and 'phones.
"We had a very uncomfortable time
crossing from St. Malo to Southampton
but no thrilling experiences. Our boat,
ordinarily carrying 300. was crowded
to suffocation with more than tuuu.
"As we left the shores of France
crowds or French olvllians and soldiers
eheered us, singing the 'Marseillaise
and shouting 'Vive l'Angleterre.' It
was auite a thrilling spectacle.
"In Southampton we sat five hours
on our luggage waiting for some regi
ments to come in. We managed a
comoartment on the train, but many
rode in the luggage vans. So we got
through with our baggage and we had
money, as two days before the panic
in France I drew out nearly $300 In
English gold and It has turned out
to be a very good tning.
Situation Is More Calm.
"Of course the people at home have
been wild and there has been some
anxious cabling, but everything is
calm now. We have been able to get
our old rooms back and are really very
comfortable. So we may be here for
onfe months, as we can't go home
until we can go with some degree of
comfort not steerage, as so many of
our terrified country people are going,
"In the American Relief Committee
rooms (whih has done a magnificent
work), at the Savoy, we have met many
students whom we knew in Berlin and
who suffered frightful atrocities at the
hands of the Germans, trying to escape
froiu there. In the meantime there are
so many of whom we can glean no
scrap of news, and needless to say we
are most anxious. Also in Berlin are
all our furs, and all our brasses and
china, left there to be shipped home
later now probably lost to us forever.
All our letters have gone to Frank
fort and they tell us we shall never re
ceive them, so for a while we shan't
know whether our friends owe us let
ters or whether we owe them."

MANNER OF RAISING PERFECT
BABY IS TOLD.
As I walked over the beautiful, graceful slopes
as I gazed out at that inspiring view of the
city, the mountains, the river, the thousands
of square miles before me I thought of the
dream that has become a reality.
Before me, completed, lie Westover Terraces
the magnificent, the wonder-work of man!
What so many Portland people have said
was an impossibility, has been accomplished.
The ideal of two great engineers is realized.
I do not believe you have seen any greater
evidence of confidence in Portland than that of the
men who have stood behind this gigantic undertaking
through the past five years. Over a million and a half
dollars has been invested. Over a thousand men have
worked on this project. Over seven billion: gallons of
water have been used by the hydraulic giants. Over
three million cubic yards of dirt have been moved.
Wednesday, Sept. 23, will be "Westover Day."
On this date the second and last section of Westover
Terraces will be placed on sale. It is the last high-class
view property in Portland. As John C. Olmstead, the
great Boston landscape engineer who designed West
over a man of international fame said, "There is
nothing like it, anywhere''

England Is Bringing Soldiers

PAPERS' SILENCE ORDERED
Rev. Oswald W. Taylor Hears From
Brother About to Leave on For
eign Service Clerical Parent,
Nearly 10, Wants to Go.
That British troops from India are
being transported to England by way
of Canada at the rate of several thou
sand dally and that the newspapers
are forbidden to publish the informa
tion is the news contained in a letter
received by Rev. Oswald W. Taylor, of
Portland, from his brother. Llewellyn
Taylor, an employe of the Imperial
Bank of Canada, in Prince Albert, who
is an officer in the volunteers and is
under orders himseK for foreign serv
ice . .
The feeling existent in Canada is
shown by Mr. Taylor's assertion that
his father, who is a Church of Eng
land clergyman, nearly 70 years of age,
is only restrained from offering his
services to his country because of his
physical Inability to stand the hard
ships of a campaign.
Mr. Taylor's letter, date September
6, is, In part, as follows:
"I am writing to ycu on what, at the
present time, seems o be the eve of
my departure for the unknown. I am
going to the war.
Indian fervlce Expected.
"As you know. I am an officer in the
52d Regiment. The first contingent of
the regiment left here about three
weeks ago and, as far as we know, is
due to sail on the 15th. Immediately
after their departure from here we re
ceived orders to recruit a second con
tingent, which we have done, also to
hold ourselves in readiness to be called
away at any time. We think, however,
that It will be three weeks before that
call is made.
"We are bound for foreign service,
but don't think it is probable that we
will see service in Europe. India seems
to be the destination intended for some
Canadian troops. This is apparent from
the fact that Indian soldiers are pass
ing over the' Canadian Pacific Rail
road at the rate of one tralnload every
six hours from Vancouver to Halifax.
This information is not allowed to be
published by the newspapers.
"At any rate, old chap, after careful
thought and deliberation, I have de
termined to throw in my lot with the
rest. What's the use of wearing the
King's uniform if I don't live up to
what it represents? Father says he
would go himself if he was strong
enough to endure the fatigue. He quite
agrees with me that I am only doing
my duty by going. I am a good shot
and my eyesight is as good as ever, if
not better. Of course, it will be incon
venient to wear glasses all the time,
but I did fine without them in camp
at Sewell this year, so everything is

army. My position will be held open
until I return, and the question of
paying absentees half salaries is under
consideration. My regimental pay will
be $3.60 a day with everything sup
plied. "By Jove, you know it's a corker
how things happen. Here I entered the
militia three years ago as a hobby, but
the spirit of the thing gradually
worked upon me and I became keener
and keener. This Spring I went to
Winnipeg and attended the Royal
School; then I went down to camp
this Summer and passed my signalling
examination, finally after finishing up,
war breaks out! I must have seen it
coming and didn't know it!
"Well, old chap, after all this
'spieling' it would be a Joke on me if
we weren't ordered out, but there is
no chance of that happening, as the
fight is only Just starting."

It entirely. To do this, get about four
ounces of ordinary liquid arvon; apply
It at night when retiring; use enough
to moisten the scalp and rub It in gent

Do this tonight, and by morning
most, if not all. of your dandruff will
be gone, and three or four more appli
cations will completely dissolve and en
tirely destroy every single sign and
trace of it. no matter how much dan
druff you may have.
You will find, too, that all Itching
and digging of the scalp will stop at
once, and your hair will be fluffy, lus
trous, glossy, ellky and soft, and look
and feel a hundred times better.
If you want to preserve your heir,
do by all means get rid of dandruff,
for nothing destroys the hair more
quickly. It not only starves the hair
and makes It fall out but It makes It
stringy, straggly, dull. dry. brittle and
lifeless, and everyone nottcae it. You
