When Miss Sadlo Campbell, trained
nurse, left here last July a passenger
on the Drltish tramp steamer Aeon
time had caned no lines in her pret
ty face and her brown hair showed
no trare of gray. Twelve days after
leaving port the Aeon was wrecked
on a desert island, where the passen

Campbell arrived home jestcrdny on
tho liner Mariposa. Instead of tho
neat tailor-made suit In which Bhe
went away she wore a nondescript
creation In pink, the best she could
get In the south seas. Her drawn
face bore the chisel marks of the anx
ious caro that hud changed her
blown hair to it snow white. Quietly
and with tho eloquence of simplicity
bhe told the story of her last "case";
how at her patient's side she had
fiaed death In mld-I'nclflc; had reach
ed an island barren of Negetatlon and
Inhabited only by land crabs; how a
little daughter had been born to her
patient on that desolate island and
how, two das later, they were all
Mho Aeon left here July C for Sd

but by an caslon of the law pi.ssagu
was sold to more than a dozen people.
The passengers Included Chaplain II.

18 months, Miss Campbell, who had
been engaged to accompany Mrs. Pat

the luck of transportation facilities
that passage was taken un the Aeon.
Following two dnys of gale1 (hd
Aeon dashed on a reef.
"Wo were In bed," said Miss Camp
bell, "when the ship struck tho reef.
It grounded very gently, but It scared'
us just tho same, and In a few min
utes we were all on the bridge, vthcrn
no spent the night. A heavy mist
had shut out the sight of the break
ers until too late.
"During the night the Aeon turned
broadside to the beach and was never
still for an Instant. It wns not until
da light that Captain Downlo dis
co crod that we were on Christmas
Island, 35 miles out of our course.
Tho highest part of ChrlstmaB Island
Is only 10 feet above the water and
there is not n estlge of verdure on
It. The sea had got Into the fresh
water on the Aeon and until Chief
Engineer Merrltt improvised n distil

"They helped us ashore, where wo
sat in the broiling bud, white the
men dragged lumber through the surf
and with the boards and tarpaulin
from the ship built us a hut. Hut
for my anxiety about Mrs. Patrick I
might hae enjojed the Robinson Cru
soe part of It. As It was, however,
I had no thought but of the effect It
might hao on her and fear lest In
an emergency I could do nothing."
1 Huts were built and storerooms.
Provisions were brought ashore from
tho waterlogged and badly mangled
ship, and life ashore was organized
Into something like sjstem. A flag
pole was set up from which nil day
there fluttered at half mast n re-
creed llrltlsh flag. At night a great
bonfire wns lighted In hopo of nt

sister ships might bo In the vicinity
20 or 30 bonfires!. were lighted. Hut

Meanwhile nn aged carpenter, Han.

n well, in which tho fresh water ioso

the captain, chief engineer, second
officer and third engineer started foi
Fanning Island In one of the Aeon's
lifeboats. The-next day the boat
drifted back with sails gone and tho

Meanwhile, the etcnt which had ta

was drawing near. Captain Downlo
