An Objector to Tension Reform.
A. CWeiesert. commander-in-chief of
the grand army, has written a letter to
Representative O'Neil in protest against
his proposed pension reforms.
The law as it stands gives pensions to
all men who served for 90 days daring
the civil war if they have become or shall
hereafter become in whole or in part dis
abled for manual labor. Under this pro
vision pensions have been given to well-to-do
men, to rich men. to mea whom the
government already hires at good salaries,
to lawyers with a large practice, to phy
sicians, merchants and members of con
The payment of pensions to such men
is an abuse, says the New York World.
It is also a wrong to the disabled and
helpless old soldiers. These latter are not
italf well enough cared for, and one rea
on is that the money which should be
available for their support is paid to
thousands of men perfectly well able to
aapport themselves or possessed of means
of their own. Many millions are drawn
every year by men who do not cecd gov
Mr. O'Neil proposes lo correct this. He
proposes tbat disability pensions shall
AOt be paid to men who were not actually
dlsab!ed iu service.or by reason of service
when such men have incomes of more
than $600 a year.
This clause Mr. Weissert regards as es--pecially
obnoxious "occause it requires a
public acknowledgement of poverty"
ut what shame can any honorable man
feel in acknowledging a poverty due to
physical inability to work? The esential
idea in granting pensions to men not dis
abled in service is to relieve their poverty
when they grow older or fall victims to
disease. Their poverty furnishes the oc
casion fur giving them bounty. The only
men who have reason for shame iu the
natter are these who accept the govern
ment's money when they do not need it.
Mr. Weissert also objects to the props
aal that widows' pensions shall not be
paid ta women who did not marry their
soldier husbands within five years after
discharge frem service. The number of
years fixed upon is a detail which may be
changed before action ia taken, if the
period be deemed too short. But some
thing should be done to check the prac
tice on the part of designing young wo
men of marrying old soldiers simply for
the sake of a pension after their certainly
approaching and perhaps desired death.
One case was recently reported where
a young women of SO mar
ried a moilbard old soldier of SO
and claimed a pension as his widow.
Bach practices are manifest abuses.
They make heavy drains upon the treas
ury and there is assuredly no suggestion
of disregard for the old soldier in an at
tempt to protect against such in justice a
treasury whose every dollar is the product
of tome man's hard work.
It ought to be the purpose and the
pride of Grand Army mem, of whom Mr.
Weissert is the commander, to aid in de
fending the country against assaults
- through the pension office, as they de
fended it against physical assault in their

XIGID ECONOMY AND HARD LABOR.
How One Boston Merchant Became Rich
and I lfluentlal.
"It would bo well for the young men
of today to take n y recipe for becoming
prosperous," eaid Mr. John Shepard the
other day es he sat. before his little desk
in an npper story of big great dry goods
house on Winter itreet. "I began life
at the very bottom runs of the ladder,
but with a determination that I would
succeed if such a thing were possible
with the talent that I possessed. Early
in life I came to the conclusion that
economy was the f rst great essential in
establishing a fortune, and that labor
was the second. I banished from my
mind all other con dderations when I be
gan to work upon the road that I felt
sure would lead to the goal of which I
was in search.
"I remember very distinctly going
down Marshall strset one day and hav
ing my attention attracted by a most
tempting display in a confectioner's win
dow. I had what is known as a very
sweet tooth, and I brought up standing
before the sweet collection as if sud
denly arrested by some irresistible force.
My hand immediately found ita way to
the pocket that carried my meager hoard
ings, and before I really knew what I
was doing I had invested 2 cents in but
terscotch. When I got back into the
street, I began to 1 ave a full realization
of what I had done, and it is safe to say
that no candy ever entered a boy's mouth
that was so little relished as was my
butterscotch. I regretted that invest
ment for years, and whenever the tempta
tion again came u;xn me while passing
the store I pnt it a ay instantly.
'Keeping close to this line of strict
economy, I found myself at last in a po
sition to go into business. Then, how
ever, I commenced to feel that capital
alone was powerless in the attainment
of success, unless it was seconded by un
tiring labor. Hera also I met all the
necessary requirements, frequently de
voting 20 hours of the 24 to my business.
Gradually I found that I was amassing a
fortune, and fina'ly I established the
house which now 1 .cars my name. After
I had accomplished what I started out to
do, there came over me an entire change.
I had no aspirations to become abnor
"All that I want 1 was a safe guaran
tee against possible disaster in the fu
ture. I devoted a portion of my time to
the enjoyment of life, believing that I
had earned my right to do so. No, sir;
there is no use in filling a boy's head
with all the u w fcngled ideas of getting
rich, as they are not practical. Econo
my and labor are the only elements that
enter into the greet plan of successful
business life." Bo -ton Herald.
At a dinner the other evening every
one was asked to state truthfully what
were his or her economies, and the
result was very a musing, each person
being convicted of some small meanness
which contrasted oddly enough with bis
or her style of living. -I must confess
I can never resist hatpins," said one
grande dame. '-I simply hate to buy
them, and I alwaj feel a disposition to
take one whenever I see a well garnished
pincushion .'it a frii nd's house."
"I am so thankfi.l to hear yon say so,"
exclaimed another magnate of society
wh entertains charmingly ia her lovely
house on Murray hill, "for I am a veri
table kleptomaniac about rubber bands.
Whenever I attend one of my charitable
meetings I alwayt. feel . an almost irre

"I think the only thing I am really
stingy about," admitted a rich bachelor
who is renowned for Ins hospitalities,
"are matches. I always light over an
old match if possible, and invariably row
the servants if they buy too many."

Eflec t of Mu .ic on Animals.
At the zoo the zebra, wild ass, deer
and ostrich went ii to paroxysms of rag?
at the sound of the piccolo, although
they had manifested various signs of
pleasure over the v.olin and flute. The
tiger was asleep, an 1 refused to be awak
ened by the fiddler and flutist. But
when the man with the piccolo began to
play tho animal 6 rang furiously to ita
feet and rushed anf lily up and down the
cage, lashing its tiil. So extreme was
the beast's anguish that the piccolo man
speedily gave place to the flutist. The
difference in effect '.vas at once apparent.
The tiger stopped, listened, ly down
and purred like a k tten in its enjoyment
of the grateful sounds, and presently fell
asleep in luxurio is repose. London
Tne Daily Dinner In Some Houses.
In no way has th i spirit of the times
brought more change than in the dinner
hour and costume. The grandfathers of
the present general ion thought 6 o'clock
a late hour to dine, but now 7:30 is con
sidered early. The master should also
don his dress suit, although the Tuxedo
coat in one's own house is allowable.
