PENSION LEGISLATION. following is quoted from the jn ax-t of 1SU0: ' ' '. persons who served ninety days re in the military or naval service ? United States during the late jf the rebellion, and who have honorably discharged therefrom, .'?ho are now or who may hereafter ffering from a mental or physical ilily of a permanent character, i? re?uk of iJi-oir i/w.n vicious tin b hich incapacitates them from the finance of manual labor in such ree as to render them unable to l support, shall, upon making due of the fact ???????? iced upon the list o? invalid pen? 's of the United States, and be ?d to ireceive a pension not >x >S tl2 per month and not less than ? -month, proportion, d to the de >f inability to earn a support." ?Ill be seen that the slipshod man which t.h.is law is worded makes ?sible far a man of Independent ng inability io w ok. In fact, a er of cases which have recently brought to light show that it is difficult matiter to prove disability in cases where none exists. The of the act La manifest. It is In 1 to pension only chose veterans re .in absolute need and are uri o .help themselves, but it fails to is, an omiss.un which lias opened reasury to many fraudulent and thy claimants. iis act should be repealed at once teps should be taken to rid the ?n list of those who, under its UOUS terms, have been benOfltited at the expensi markable statement: "Brains rule the world. Bluscle is out of date. The 1 thoroughbred scholar takes precedence over the self-made man." This is in striking antithesis to the view recently expressed by a college professor to the effect that the vulgar foot ball man and not the bright student was the col? lege. It is apparent, however, that neither view is the correct one. Ever since Sam caried off the gates of Gaza physical strength has been admired by men and will al ways challenge admira? tion so long as human nature does business at the old stand. The man of muscle without brain is Just about as helpless as the man of brain without the muscle. It is only by a Judicious combination of the two that the best re suits are obtained, and t he most perfect "specimens of manhood are those in which the two elements are nicely tflen - dc-d and evenly balanced. )f The Daily Press is in receipt book entitled "The Road to Prosperi? ty," by T. W. Woods, of Richmond. In this little volume the author entertain? ingly discusses the financial situation, from a free silver standpoint, and vari? ous other questions of general Interest. The book has a number of pictures ?which cleverly Illustrate its subject matter. While all persons may not asree with Mr. Woods' views on the currency question 'there can be no di? vision ot sentiment as to the justice of his caustic remarks in reference to the pension matter and that monumen? tal piece of humbuggery, the free.dis? tribution of- seed by the Agricultural" Department. There is also a chapter devoted to the road question?a subject which cannot be too violently agitated in Virginia. The book is published by Charles H. Kerr & Co., Chicago. Ar, empty treasury may n,,t be the worst thing on; earth. It gives the Spinlsh government an excellent ox far refusing to give pensions.
