A SALVATION A'RMY BUMAIU. •Little Cupid is a base protandor. The only real, gefruine pilomotor o£ matiimooiy is the Salvation Army. Cupid only adds; tho finishing -touches after tluo Army had done all tho hawl preliiniwiry work. And Cupid, pretender that he is, has bom taking ali tho credit. The Salvation Army, says a writer in the Chicago Tribune makes marriages that count and lust. It is no trouble to bring about a marriage in the upper, fashiosratolu world, where tin young moil and women have nothing to do save thmk about love. Tiro Army promoters of matrimony confine their olTorts to tho busy folk—the men and women "who do thingis. Thoy make it a point to join the young folk who have no social opportunities, and who oHmi-wise might miss the blessings that go .with double harness.
The Salvation Arany nmmita'n a social department-, at tho head of which is StuH'-Captain Miss 11. Louise Cogges'hall. The duties of tho so-.-ial department consist chiefly in promo-ting and maintaiprog mavriages. Unlike Cupid, the Salvation Army makes marriages that last. The Army matrimonial promoters slick to the married ooujiles, aid tiWtu w-lven tilrcly have difficulties, advising, crccoMragin-g, yiiwl in all ways mailing their married, progress easy. The social departiuidnt of tho Salvation Army is the greatest and most successful matrimonial agrn:cy in tho world. ,A.i»d it is strictly legitimate. The police never imvlro inquiries concerning the matrimonial bureau. The police in fact, do qjiite the contrary. It is the |wlie« who aid and abet the aguney in every way possible Tsot a few of those young men and women who want to got married, but have no way of fmding a mate, are diroct<>d to-the social department of the Salvation Army by the. police.
