vhich the same was cited in the
s'rench orders of the army. The
■ Fourragere and miniature Fourragere

' separate cover this date.
“For your information, you are in
formed that the 5th and 6th Regi
1 ments of Marines were cited three
times; Boise de Belleau, June 2-13,
1918, Soissons, July 18-19, 1918, and

the 6th Machine Gun Battalion was
twice cited, Boise de Belleau, Junea
2-13, 1918, and Soissons July 18-19,
1918. The Fourragere is therefore a
part of the uniform of the above-men
tioned organizations, and is worn on

ton-hole of the Fourragere to the left
shoulder-strap button, passing the
Fourragere underneath the left arm,
fastening the loop on the pencil end
thereof to the same button, allowing
the brass pencil to hang down in

of the fact that they were at least
twice cited in the French Ordex's of
the Army, i. e., the colors of these
units were decorated with the French
Croix de Guerre with Palm on at least
two different occasions, and the Four
ragere is therefore of the colors of

are entitled have hertofore been

“Laundry Service
Costs Me Nothing”
It was thus that one of our patrons
spoke’to us a few days ago.
At the time she was paying us a
bill of $1.60, so we asked for an ex
planation of what seemed to be a
very strange statement.
“It is all so simple”, she said, “that
I am surprised you ask. By send
ing our washing to the laundry, I
gain ten hours a week. I use these
extra hours in personal shopping,
instead of buying by telephone.
Last week I was able thus to make
a saving of more than $5.00 in my
purchases. I could have said just as
truthfully that laundry service ac
tually adds to my income."
We thought it quite a sensible
domestic arrangement—and so pass
it onto you with our heartiest recom
mendations.
While you are shopping, we will
give your personal and family things
a laundering that we know you will
esteem highly. There is nothing
of rubbing or scrubbing in our
methods—only soft water and soap
of the best. Perfect cleanliness and
sterilization is the sum of our work.
Try this economy in your house
hold program. Start today. A tele
phone call will bring our driver for
your family bundle.
