Very few of our readers have any correct idea of the Pension policy of our government. Some of them, doubtless, would be interested in having a clear idea of its magnitude. Five thousand local examiners in va rious sections of the country con stantly engaged with a large number of clerks who do nothing but examine the innumerable claims of soldiers who were wounded, or their legal representatives, if dead, to ascertain and present the cluims for pensions under the pension laws. This is said to be and is, undoubtedly the hardest worked department of the govern ment. It is paying out one million five hundred thousand dollars a week, but this is the smallest part of the work, for the payments are made at the local pension offices located at eighteen or twenty cities in the Union. The largest single office is that at Columbus, Ohio, where eight millions of dollars, perhaps more, are paid out to pensioners in a single year. The next largest paying office is In dianapolis, Chicago being third, and Topeka, Kansas, fourth. Six and a half millions of dollars are paid there yearly. It is surprising to learn that nearly four millions are paid out at Knox ville, Tennessee, and two and a half millions are paid at Louisville, Ken tucky. While so mnch money is ex pended on these pensions, it is grati fying to,'know that such large sums are distributed in these Southern States. he people of the North have been constantly expressing their pleasure that all of this pension mon ey goes to the Northern States, while nearly six and u half millions goes to these two Southern States. It cannot be that it is owing to so many people in them having proved untrue to their section in the war hut rather to many northern soldiershav ing removed to them to better their fortunes mainly in the cultivation of belter lands and enjoying better cli mates. For the same reason the pension rolls run up to 1,200 In Ken tucky, 8,000 iu Tennessee, 4,000 in Texas and average about one thous and in each of the other Gulf States. “One of the ouriosities of the pen sion law is the large number of dif ferent rates that have been allowed. Between the rates of $1 a month and $106.00 a month the highest and low est rates, there are 149 different rates on the rolls. It seems odd to pay $2.60 to some pensioners and $2,664 to others, or $13.33 to some and $13,331 to others. Yet this is done under the various laws passed by congress Twelve (dollars a month is the pen sion drawn by 25,000 invalids and 85.000 widows, minors and depen dents. a larger number than any oth er rate. All but 8,000 of the widows draw this sum per month. Seventy thousand invalids draw $4 a month, 50.000 $6, C5,000 $8, 20,000 $10, 12,000 $10, 14,000 $24, 12,000 $30, 3,000 $30, 2,500 $45, 1,500 $50, and 1,000 $72. Three widows and orphans draw $100 a month, and four $100.60 a month. More than 33,000 of the pensioners get from the government the pittance of $2 a month or less, several hun dred of these getting only $1 £ month.” Some persons suppose that all the veterans of the late war, or nearly all, are on the pension rolls. This is not true, for of 2,800,000 men who went into the war of rebellion, as it is call ed, only 429,000 pensioners are now carried on the rolls. So it will be seen there is but one pension for every 7 soldiers. The rolls show 20,000 pen sioners of the war with Mexico, 15,000 of them survivors. Number 6. native lands to pass their declining years with the “old folks at home.” \Vo furnish the facts in this article to give our readers a clearer view of this pension business than they pos sessed. Many suppose that all the pension money goes to and is used in the free States. From the above statement it will be seen that some millions are paid in the former slave states and to that extent is useful to the people in them ns it is circulated there. We are indebted to the Au gusta Chronicle for some of the facts embodied in this article. We were aware that much of the money was received in the Southern States, but a writer for the Augusta Chronicle gives more light upon the subject than we possessed and it affords us pleasure to communicate it to our readers. “There are more than 10,000 pen sioners of file war of 1812, about 700 of them being survivors. Not a sin glo survivor remains of the Revolu tionary war, though 30 pensioners on nccount of that war are still on the roll, all of them widows. This iB rather strange, considering that the last battle of the Revolution was fought about 108 years ago, but some of the survivors of that war were lusty old chaps, who married late in life and left young widows to draw their pensions for them. Say a youth of 16 Berved iu the Revolution At 05 years of age he married a girl of 20; that girl would be only 89 years old now. Rather odd that a century of time, full of so much history, can be so easily spanued by the lives of man and wife, isn’t it?’’ The soldiers of the late war, are now scattered all over the world. “Every quarter pension money or ders or checks are sent to Mexico, Alaska, Central and South America, China, India und even to Greenland and’Iceland. All told there aro near ly 2,500 pensioners who reside in for eign countries, many of them widows throat or dhUculty 8 ofVreathhig! ^ ot soldiers who have returned to their np,- —— JAS. D.

There seems to be an innate, al most organic disposition in men and women, and the brute creation, too, to have “spells”, some in one way some in another. In other words, men and women make fools of them selves periodically. Some of the best men have these “spells,” though they differ widely in the direction they take as well as in their duration. Some good men get on a “spree” of two or three weeks, and all kind offices of friends aro powerless to dispossess the demon that is in temporary rule. When the spell lias its run, as it is certain to do in a short period, there is a sereni ty and sweetness about the man that is really charming. Wo knew of a distinguished son of Georgia, learned iu the law, rich in earthly possessions, eloquent, gallant, modest as a girl, and forawliileajustice’of the Supreme Court of this State, who took these ‘spells” periodically, and while in their mighty toils no friendlyvrord, no admonition, not even a brother’s, could exorcise the mystic influence that had possession of his mind, body and soul; but when the freak had fled, and the “spell” was over the cur rent of that man’s life would run aloDg in a groove of sweet sobriety, and harmony. We knew a married lady once, of fine family, root, branch, flower and fruit, happily married, too, who, every few years, would lock herself in a room of her residence and have no communion with husband qr children for weeks, and barely permit a ser vant to enter the door to bring her water and meals. There was no ac counting for her strange freak, but it was as certain to return as the years were to roll by, and when the spell was at its end, there was no more I tender, loving, companionable wo man in all the town than she. Young women are not exempt from these follies. Many instances in every one’s mind’s eye, are readily re-called. With some it is love, or disappoint ment, or jealousy, a senseless whim, but whatever it he it comes along at periods with the certainty of the earth’s revolutions. Even the lower animals have these freaks. Dogs go mad, and others sometimes take the sulks, as hunter* well know, and disappoint all their well laid, schemes for sports of the forest and field. And even the old cows, who have looked all through the winter so weak, attenuated and spiritless, when SpriDg comes, and the green grass covers, the earth, hoist their tails, kick up their hind legs, a la can-can style, and put all the mod est un^Je bovine to utter wonderment to know what in the deuce is in the old critter. But the worst type remains: it is the man for a “fuss.” Wheneverj- body else is at peace, and the ele ments themselves inviting to sereni ty, this man breaks out and terrori ses the community and his * family with his violence or malicious devil try. But even he gets over his “spell” after awhile, and then he is quiet and orderly until the demon gets hold of him again. There are hundreds of milder cases that the public ear does not catch, domestic in their nature and there fore sacred. But there are very few Fashionable Resorts, From Our Regular Correspondent. Nauragasset Pikr, U. I., August 8th, 1889. There is galoty at “The Pier.” If hearts ache and heads throb with calcula ting and contriving how to keep up the style that such a life necessitates, the looker on Is none the wiser—at least not often. Once In a while though, the mask slips off. and one sees the tragic face that has been so successfully hidden. As I eat on the broad hotel piazza the other evening listening to the dreamy Htralns of one of the dreamiest of Straus waltzes, I won dered as a person not rich !s apt to do, how it was possible for ho many people to wear precious stones and the costliest of costly costumes. I soon found that “all was not gold that glittered." A young woman whom I had watched In the waltz, and who seemed the personification of grace, beauty’ and mental oaee, tripped lightly-out and approached a gentleman standing only a few feet from where 1 was sitting. “Is that ypu, Dick?" she asked "Yes, what do you want?" was the some what gruff response. “Did you get the money?" hie companion inquired softly and eagerly. "No I didn’t, and I wish you would stop bothering. You are enough to wear a man Into his grave.” "I shall leave this hotel to-morrow,” the lady re plied with a catch In her voice. "Our bill now is-” "Shut up will you!" the nmn ex- really a wonderful book, ns all the critics of alt the papers agree. The.New tYork Sun, which is generally hyper-critical in all matters pertaining to authorship, gives this volumo a glowing tribute. Some of the reviewers class Dean with Haggard In respect to the power of the Imagination, "l’otosega” Is certainly a weird book and Intensely Interesting. The style Is quaint ami classic, and the characters are as In dividual as persons In actual life. “The Sage of the Crimson Bash,” who may pro perly bo called the villain of “Petosega," is the most entrancing character possible to conceive of. One never knows what ho Is going to do next, ,Hls experience at “Tho Boat of Being,” and beside the "Wheels of the Universe” is unique, original and thril ling beyond description. “Petosega" Is soiling faster than “She" did. The long Irish poasant clock of white camels hair, lined with white silk, Is In groat favor at "Tho Pier.” Thoso gar ments are most graceful and useful articles of toilet for the hotel piazza after the dunce or for ocean promenades. One of the latest fads at tills beautiful summer resort is the making of carriage sunshades by ladles. The ooverlngs are or overy possible design—white with black lace, black silk with white lace, ombrolder- ed sections, with fringe around tho top and edge. One lady from Philadelphia Is •aid to have thirteen sunshades, each one matching a costume, nine oi which she made herself. Elhanob Kibe. Washington Letter. From Our Regular Correspondent.

Tho arsenical pallor whioh has distinguished so many faces Is now slowly disappearing. Our best physicians are having something to say againtt tiro steady absorption of these poisons, and it Is quite time. There ought to have been a law long ago, against tho sale of such things. I had a pleasant talk with two of the fashionable reformers, one of whom originated the Idea of employ ing Miss M. G. Anderson, the Metropolitan Guide and shopper of Brooklyn to find something for thc face, hands and scalp that was thoroughly pure and that would do honest work In removing pimples and preventing and removing wrinkles and other unsightly stains and excrescences. Miss Anderson was successful in her search, though It took nearly three mouths to accomplish It, and the oxpondi- turo of a considerable amount of money in tho different analyzatious. The right pre parations were at last discovered to the great joy of thoso who needed safe beaut- tifying. The most popular novel is tho last one out. “Petosega" Is stamped on tho cover, and "The Heroines of Petosega" on tho in side. The author hails from Michigan, and is a young man who worked his way through the Michigan University and through Harvard College. “Petosega" Is kick up a row. The fact of the matter is that England is just as much in terested in having the illegal taklug of seals stopped as is the United States and the Canadians may howl all they please but her majesty’s gov ernment will not get excited over this question. The law under which this seizure was made was passed by tho last Congress as the result of an investigation made by a com mittee of the House. It was among the last hills signed by Mr. Cleveland. Commissioner of Pensions Tanner has answered the charge of favorit ism in making applications special by giving out a statement showing the entire number of such cases to have been nine hundred and fifty two. These applications were represented by 317 attorneys, the largest number and whose people roam about a listless, half-hearted sort *ff way. Tho Nows quotes the following ’ inspired language: Blessed is the man that stosi* clear of the way of the kickat and mingles himself not in thfr congregation of the mossback, but whose delight is in new rail roads, brick blocks and other en terprises which build up himself' and his town.
