The Philadelphia Record notes that
theSpanish government has just made
some queer discoveries in the course
of an investigation of its accounts to
determine where new economies might
be introduced. It seems that in 1637
annuities were granted to a number of
nuns, the vouncest of whom was at
that time 17 years of age and the
oldest 66. Notwithstanding the fact
that the acres of the annuitants would
now range between 78 and 121 years
none of them has apparently died, for
tne pensions, amounting in all to yo,
000 pesetas a vear, have been drawn
regularly ever since thev were granted
The church authorities have been
asked for an explanation and for
proofs that the nuns are still alive
failing which the latter will be sehed
uled as dead.
