Mrs. Chas. Boguo, to whom -was
delogatod tho work of organizing a
Red Cross canteen servico, has com
pleted tho task and as soon as auth
ority Is obtained from Red Cross
headquarters at Chicago tho canteen
will bo opened.. This authorization
from headquarters comes only aftor
tho service has been organizod and tho
tcopo of tho work outlined, tills out
lino being necessary In order that tho
Chicago officials may dotorminq
whether tho organization is sufficient
ly strong and financially able to carry
out tho work which a canteen may bo
called upon to do.
Tills canteen will extend Its service
to troops passing through, but will
not apply to tho Individual soldiers
who pass trhough on every train, In
other words tho canteen will be o'pon
only at such times as troop trains
pass through, or when ono or moro
cars of soldiers aro attached to a reg
ular tran. Should tho ' office in
charge telegraph ahead that a meal
was doslred for so many soldiers, it.
is tho duty of tho canteen to furnish
such meal, and in this -case tho ex
pense of serving the meal would be
charged to tho government If, how
over, no such ordors are sept then the
soldiers will be furnished with coffee,
sandwiches, tobacco and magazines
frco of charge.
Soventv women have enlisted In this
locaf canteen servico. Those havo

mand of a captain, and quite" natur
ally each captain thinks sho has the
best workers In hor squad.
