A pension claimant who has apjjlied under the gen eral law must make a formal application under the act of June 27, 1890, if he wishes to have his right to pension deter mined under the latter act. His claim cannot be transferred from one law (o the other. If pension is granted under the act of 1890 it will commence from the date of filing of his formnl application under said act, and not from the date of filing of his claim under the general law. D. E., Chelbca, Ind. T. See reply to J. N. II. above. V. C, Wabasha, Minn. The rate of widow's pension under act of June 27, 18D0, is S8 per month." It is the same un der the general law unless the widow was married to the soldier before March 19, 1886, or before or during his service. G. O., Conway Springs, Kan. The Com missioner of Pensions is presumed to be governed by the rulings and decisions of The Secretary of the Interior in general and in particular cases. A case ought in general to he finally acted on within six months after medical examination, if the proofs are otherwise complete. Invalid pension commences from the dale of til ing of the formal application. G. W. G., Oakland, Md. The term "wholly disabled for manual labor" in the act of Jan. 5, 1893, providing for increase of Mexican "War service-pension in certain cases, is regarded as equivalent to total inability for the performance of any manual labor whatever, for which a rate of S0 is provided by the general law. It is held in a decision under this law that the claimant, 74 years old, is not entitled, he cause able to do the walking necessary in the performance of the duties of County Surveyor, the compensation of which is about S50 per year, and though he has as sistants to carry and set the instruments for him. A. O., TVhitesboro, N. Y. -There is no official publication for general circulation which contains the ratings of invalid pension. The National Tribune Soldier's Hand Book, obtainable as a premium, contains all such, however. J. C, Browning, Mo. As has been re peatedly stated in this column and else where, pensioners are not obliged to an swer the questions contained in a circu lar letter from the Commissioner of Pen sions through the pension agents, seek ing information as to the pensioner's marriage, etc. The Commissioner of Pen sions appears to be acting in the belief that "pension frauds" will in the future assume the form of bogus widows and other bogus heirs of deceased soldiers and sailors, and he is seeking to anticipate the future by collecting information of the character indicated. M. II., Cork, Ireland. No U. S. bountv was offered for enlistments in the navy before July 1, 1854. J. R., Cleves, O. Whether a widow was a first or second or third wife makes no difference in the determination of her title to pension, but if she was not married to the soldier before June 27, 1890, she is not entitled to pension under the pension act of that date, and can obtain pension only under general law, which requires satisfactory evidence showing soldier's death to have been due to the service and 'ine of duty. C. M. J., Chicago, 111. Appeals in re jected pension cases should be addressed to the "Secretary of the Interior," though they are in .fact considered by the Board of Pension Appeals, under the supervision of the Assistant Secretary of the Interior, Hon. Webster Davis. No "notice of appeal"-need be given. The Pension Bureau receives notice from the Department. G. D., Archbold, O. If discharged from the army to enlist in the navy, you would have been entitled, on discharge from the navy, to receive the same bounty that you would have been entitled to receive if you had continued to serve under your army enlistment. If discharged from your army enlistment before two years' service for reasons other than the close of the war or wound or injury incurred in service and line of duty you would not be entitled to any further bounty. F. C. A., Baltimore, Md. It is not clear what information you wish. The rating for a gunshot wound is supposed to in clude all disablement resulting there from. Invalid pension under the general law commences from the date the disabili ty claimed on was formally set forth in ap plication filed in the Pension Bureau. ClIAS. H. EUSSELL. Daxl. Ryax. W. F.

The thriving town of Medway, Mass., has no more repntable citizen than Capt. John P. L. Grant, the carpenter aud bnilder. For months ho was a sufferer from wrecked di gestion, loss of memory and the keenest of rheumatic pains arising from a life of ambi tious labor and arduous exposure as an offi cer in the late war, and later as a U. S. mail carrier. A representative of this paper called on Capt. Grant for his story. He met the news paper man cheerily, and in his own honest, simple language, said: "I was born in South Berwick, Me., Dec. .10, 1634, and when two years old, moved with my parents to Old York, Me. When 1G years old I was apprenticed to a prominent builder, Samuel Colcord, of Exeter, N. H., to learn the carpenter's trade with the added privilege of attending Phillips Academy, then as now a famous seat of learning. I graduated from there and went to Portland, Me., where I served two years with Hon. Win. G. Kimball, a noted builder of the time. "I worked in Newburyport two years and then established myself in business in West Amcsbtiry. During this period I was mar ried at Charlestown. In 1862 I removed to York, where I enlisted in the U. S. service. 1 served nearly three years, participated in forty-three battles, some of. them the hottest lights of the war, was twice wounded and for a time disabled, and at last was discharged at Augusta, Mc, in 18G3. " I secured and kept the contract for car rying the mails between York and Ports mouth, !N". IT., for twelve years. I removed to Medway in March, 1887, where I have since r sided, iu business as a carpenter and bnilder. I have raised a family of ten chil dren, and have now a family of sis residing with me. ''About three years ago I was suddenly attacked with dizzy spells, protracted in duration and more frequent as the weeks went by. With these attacks came incessant vomiting and spasms of coma, so that In stantly I would fall wherever I might be and remain so for tome time. "Soon I was forced to keep in bed, my di-t gestion was wrecked, by bnsiness was going ' to pieces, and everything looked very dark, i Of course I tried all kinds of remedies thai were recommended, but to no avail, and I also went to a Medical Institute in Boston, but all my expenditnre was fruitless. "Finally I secured a box of Dr. Williams' , Pink Pills for Pale People, and received o 1 great relief from them that my family and' myself could sec the direct benefits. "I kept on with their use and steadilj, grew better. The dizzy attacks lessened and at last left mc, the vomiting has entirely ceased and ray general health has not yet stopped its improvement. My digestion is now good, and to no other agency than to Dr.j Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People can my' cure be ascribed. "I had since the war been troubled greatly with chronic rheumatism, but this' was relieed by taking these pills. It is on' of the greatest remedies ever used by any body and every member of my family has the same high opinion of it that I do. ij have nothing but earnest, grateful praise for what it has done for me." (Signed) John P. L. Grant. Capt. Grant will be glad to answer any letters addressed him about his case. His address is P. O. box 142, Medwav, Mass. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Peoplo arc a specific for troubles peculiar to females,! snch as suppressions, irregularities, and all! forms of weakness. They build up the blood,.' and restore the glow of health to pale andl sallow cheeks. In men they effect a radi cal cure in all cases arising from mental! worry, overwork or excesses of whatever nature. They are manufactured by the Dr, Williams' Medicine Company, Schenectady N. Y., and are sold by all druggists at 50 cents a box, or six boxes for 2.50. THE ljEMEF COflPS. News and Gossip of tho Great AuxU iary. Mrs. S. E.
