This is an increase of 72 over last
yeari. T. sonmc counties t here is an
iincrease of the amuoiunt paid, though
a decrease inl thle nuImber of penlsionl
ei's, but this is accountedi for by the(
faet thlat the decrease is in the lower
classes -and ther'e is an increase in
the -higher classes, which receive the
The largest amount goes to Spar
Itinburg county, which draws $20,
:670,28; Greenville gets $13,439.39;
Anderson, $14,603.79; Richland, $8,
'012.29' Aiken $8,584.11. Many of the
old soldiers and their widows are
eongregatedl in the mill towns in the
Piedmiont and the middle counties,
and the amount paid for pe.isions
does not, therefore, indier'e~ anything
as to the number of soldiers sent to
