Dear Sir: In response to your letter
of the 4th instant, in which, you sug
gest that the Secretary of WVar as
sign some Ex-Confederate officer fa
miliar with Confederate muster rolls
to assist the chief of the record and
pension office in his compilation of
the recently authorized roster of the
Union and Confederate armies, I am
directed by the Secretary of War to
advise you that it is unnecessary to
make such an assignment, because the
principal Ex-Confederate officers who
assisted in the compilation of the offi
cial records of the Union are now on
duty in the record and pension office,
so that their services will be readily
available whenever they are required
or can be utilized to advantage. Very
respectfully. F. C. Ainsworth,

A careful examination of this corn

.Proper Treatment of Pneumonia...
Pneamonia is too dangerous a dis
ease for anyone to attempt to doctor
himself, although h emay have the
proper remedies at hand. A physician
should always be called. It should be
borne in miad, however, that pneu
monia always results from an attack
of the grip, and that by giving Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy the threat
ened attack of pneumonia may be
warded off. This remedy is also used
by physicians in the treatment of
pneumonia with the best results. Dr.
W. J. Smith, of Sanders, Ala., who is
also a druggist, says of it: "'I have
been selling Chamberlain's Cotugh
Remedy and prescribing it in my prac
tice for the past six years. I use it in
cases of pneumonia and have always
gotten the best results." Sold by
