(iuidry and family who had moved,to New Or leans a -me months ago, returned to St. Martinville this week, to again make this town their home. Every enlisted man in the army and navy who has a family is re quired to contribute, out of his service salary, at least $16 per month to its support. To this Uncle Sam adds a monthly family allowance ranging from five dol. lars per month for one motherless child, or $15 per month for a wife without children, up to a maxi mum of $50 per month. An en listed man without a family may make a voluntary allotment to a dependent relative, to which the government adds an allowance scaled according to its family al. lowance. The bureau now dis burses about $16,000,000 monthly on this account. In the main the men in uniform give cheerful sup port to this humane provision of - the law, but there are numerous cases in which dependents have been compelled to appeal to the bureau for relief, andl this has ad ded tu the burdeu of its labors.
