To the Families of Men in the Military Service of the United States: Congress has passed a law requiring men in the military service to make certain allotments out of their salaries to their wives and children. It per mits them to make allotments to other near rela tives. The government agrees to add certain al lowances to these allotments. The act further provides for compensation to men who are disabled in the service and permits in surance to be taken out for the benefit of the men and their dependents. You are probably not familiar with your rights under the law. The, Missoula Chapter of the Red Cross will gladly furnish you information and advice in regard to these matters, free of charge. For this purpose an office will be open in the courthouse every Thursday evening at 8 o'clock. This office will be the room just west of the office of the county su * perintendent of schools.

When he served it at the chamber of commerce luncheon yesterday, some of the members looked askance at It. Mr. Mullemer reassured them, "There is no wheat flour in this pie. There is only potato flour In the crust. The success of It is proven by the fact that none of you could tell It from pie crust made of wheat flour." The pie was served with whipped cream, and the members of the cham ber of commerce paid their tribute to the new pie crust by leaving not a crumb of it on their plates. Mr. Mull emer will give his new recipe ter pie crust to any one who is intereAed in it. Getting Rid of Cold*. The easiest and quickest way to get rid of a cold is to take CtuUnberlain's Cough Remedy. This preparation has been in use for many years and tts value fully proven. No matter what remedy you use, however, carte must be taken not to contract a second cold before you have recovered from the first one, and there is serious danger of this.
