It There were good 1 reasons for not attempting
to distribute It among the olllcers and soldiers
of the army and Goners Scott did not want to
keep the money himself although the War De
portment was quite willing tbat he houd do so
Finally he solved tho problem by personally pur
chasing the Itlggs estate and estubllihlng a Na

gift and this unique Institution has since been
maintained by a small tax imposed upon each
soldier of the regular army
