The Salvation Army specialized in coffee and doughnuts-and danger. The devoted women of the Salvation Army carried their diminutive cook ing apparatus to the front-line tren ches when they were permitted. They braved death and wounds, and they fried doughnuts, wherever there were hungry doughboys, within the limits of the Salvationists' means. This service was performed freely; it was performed faithfully. The lassies knew how to make coffee and dough nuts, and knowing how, they made them. That is the substance of the whole thing-they knew how to do something useful, and did it. They didn't preach about it, or gesticulate, or write pieces to the papers, or sob in public, or moralize over the wick edness of war, or argue Scripture, or chant beatitudes-they simply moved their funny little stoves up to where the boys were and worked all day or all night at making coffee and doughnuts. Also they smiled while they worked, but (bless their deep maternal common sense!) they didn't try to pretend like it was all a joke or a picnic. Again, let us repeat, the women of the Salvation Army knew how to do something and did it. How greatly simplified would all our prob. lems be if we would but agree, each with himself, to learn to do some thing that needs to be done, and then do it! The world-particularly Am erica-is jam full of "smart alecks" who know all about everything or something about nothing, yet who are unable or unwilling to make a decent living in practical employment. There are sermons in doughnuts and entire theologies in a cup of good coffee. NEW SALVATION ARMY HOTEL. A new Salvation Army Hostel has just been opened in San Antonio. The Hotel Williams with its furnish ings has been leased for a Red Shield Club and Hostel. It is a fine three-story brick building, 45x90, with a forty-foot grass plot at the side. On the first floor will be a parlor, writing room, library, social hall. kitchen and lunch room, with two bed-rooms for officers in charge. The two upper floors are all bedroems, which will accommodate at least for ty men. JAMES D. SIMION, ATTOtRNV-AT-LAW AND NOTARY PUBLIC. Office near Court H-ouse, St. Martinville, La.

Sediment contaminates milk and makes it less salable. Most of the sediment in milk oome' from the bodies of cows, and consists of hairs, manure, bedding, eto. Straining removes only the coarse particles of dirt and removes neith er the bacteria nor the fine dirt. Straining improves the commereja quality of milk, but does not appr. elably improve its healthfulness. The best system is to prevent, sc far as possible, the entrance of dirt into milk. This can be done best by having clean cows in clean stables milked with clean hands, into clean small-top paills. Filter cloth and absorbent cotton are efficient materials for strainers. Cheese cloth and wire gauze are less effective. Straining cloths should be changed whenever they become soiled. They should be thoroughly washed and sterilized after each using. EfMcient sterilization is accomplish ed by boiling or exposure to steam for at least five minutes. Write to the Extension Divisalon Louisiana State University, for de tailed information on the produotion and ears of milk. NATIONAL EDUCATION CAMPAIGN PLANNEO.

Tony Goulas in his article last week talks much, but says mighty little of argument or value. Yes Tony, we believe we know more about street improvements elsewhlre than you do, and for !yv,ur information will tell you, that .Jennerette paved its Main street antd railroad avenue from a general tax, submitted andt voted by the people. Crowley and (Opelousas paved their streets at the entire expense of the property owners, by authority of the ('ounci-ls, Ah hbville and Crowley are now build ing streets at the expense of pro perty owners, by authority of the Councils, New Iberia will soon be paving her streets at the ex pense of the property owners, by authority of the Council. Lafayette will soon vote on a compromise proposition of a tax for one third and two thirds by property owners, this is a compro mise of the Council and Chamber of Commerce. St. Martinville could have order ed the streets paved at the expense of the property owners without cousulting them, but the Council th , :., 1,. Ft ,I nhmit the matter before the tax payers for them to decide-:.anl they have spoken. Tony why did you not submit the same proposition in the parish to have the property owners to pay one third of the roads. You should not discrinminate, what is just forI one should be just for the other. Can't you make the difference? The Sisters of Mercy will open' their Schools on Tuesday Sept., 9th.
