There were added U this roll durinc the
year the manes at 34,153 lew pensioners,
and 1,221 previously dropped were restored
to tbe rolls, Making in . aggregate 35,413;
and 14,315 were dropped for various causes,
being a net increase on the roll of 19,098.
The average aanual value of each pension
at the close of tie year is $106.75. and the
agercgate ana value of all pensions is
$34,456,600.35, an increase over like value
for the urrvious Tear of $2,211,407.92.
The amount paid for pensions during tbo
year ib $58,908,597.00, exceeding, as will be
observed, the annual value of pensions sev
eral millions of dollars, which represents
the first payments, generally In new
claims, amd known as arrears of pensions.
The amount paid during the year to 31,307
new pensioners was $23,413,815.10, and
there remained in tv ha*n<ls of the several
pension agents 7,503 cases of this class un

The act of January 'J5, 1879, provided —
Tbat all peakiont whleh kare beea granted un
der tbe general law« regulating pensions, or iv»»
hereafter be granted, In coaieqncoce of d«ath
from a cause watch originated ]■ tbe United
States service during the continuance or tbe late
war of the rebellion, or in consequence of
wounds, injuries, or disease received or con
tracted in said rervice during said war of rebel
lion, shall commence frem the date of the death
or discharge from raid service of the person on
JBiMaa account the claim has been or
«hall hereafter be granted, or from the termina
tion of tbe right of the party having prior title to
turn pension.
In an act entitled "An act matin* appro
priations for the payment •( the arrears of
pensions granted by act of Congress," ap
proved March 3, 1879, it was provided as
follows:
AH pensions which have been, or which may
hereafter be, granted in consequence of d :»i!i
occurring from a cause wbicb originated in' tbe
service since tbe 4th day of March, I*6l, or in
consequence of wounds received or disease con
tracted since that date, shall commence from tbe
death or discharge of tbe person on whose ac
count tbe claim has been or i* hereafter granted,
if the disability occurred prior to dis
charge, aud if such disability occurred
after the discharge,- then from the date of
actual disability, or from the termination of the
right of party baring prior title to such pension:
Provided, That application fur such yen-ion has
been or is hereafter filed with the commissioner
of pensions prior to the Ist day of July. 1890,
otherwise the pension shall commence from the
date of filing the application ; but the limitation
herein prescribed shall not apply to claims by or
in behalf of instne persons and children under
sixteen years of age. 4
Tims all persons applying for pension
prior to July 1, ISSO, are entiled to pension
from the time of discharge or the death of
the person on whose account tbe claim is
made, unless tbe disability occurred after
discharge. In all claims made subsequent
to 11i:it date the pension must commence
from the time of the filing of the application.
No good reasons can be given why the claim
ants who tile their claims after July 1,
1880, ought not to receive . their
pensions from the time of discharge
if such disability then existed, or if not then
existing, from tbe time such disability orig
inated. It is but just that all persons who
are able to establish tbe right to receive a
pension should be treated alike with refer
ence to time of tbe commencement thereof.
It has beei urged in favor of this limita
tion that the large amount of arrears is an
Inducement to applicants to apply and se
cure a pension, and that tbe large amount
1o be realized is a temptation to commit
fraud on th« government by means of false
witnessed;
Tbe government bas the means of detect
ing fraud if attempted, and injustice should
cot be done to the deserving and needy sol
dier for fear the government may In some
few instances be imposed upon and com
pelled to pay a pension to which the soldier
Is not justly entitled. It is Impossible for a
eoldler to secure a pension for disabilities
not existing; it is often however, a question
art ether such disability Is or Is not the result
of service in the line of duty, Tbe rules of
tbe pension office for the determination of
this question are sufficiently strict, and with
a proper administration of the affairs of that
office very few pensions will be allowed par
ties not entitled to receive the same. It is
to be hoped that tbe limitations imposed by
lite act of March 3, 1879, will be repealed.

It will be sen from th« foregoing state
ment that the business of the patent office is
continually Increasing. The examining
■work is about six months in arrears. Every
Bncceeding year prater labor and care are
required in the consideration of applications,
owing to the increase in the number of
patents issued and the widening of the field
of invention.
Special effort* were made to Impress upon
congress during its last session the needs of
of tue office, and, as a result, an increase of
twenty-two was proTidtd in the examining
corps, but an experience of several months
Is r.-qulslte before new appointees can be-
me sufficiently skilled to render material
aid la the examination of applications. .
In U>e estimates of appropriations for the
fiscal year e«4iag J«»* 80,1836, the com
missioner asks an increase of forty in tsM
examining corps, as also an increase In com
pensation. The first is essential in order
that tbe force may be adequate for th.
ness earning before tbe office, and the second
Is ner.pusarv to retain skilled and experi
enced men who are able to discern whit
is novel in the intricate inventions presented
for consideration.
Additional room, a power ball, and a labo
ratory are indispensable to the proper con
duct aud dispatch of business; and while the
estimates submitted show consideratle in
crease "v.-i the present appropriation, the re
ceipts of tbe office arc more than ample to
cover them. In providing the necessaay
facilities for tbc administration of tbc affairs*
of this office no burden will be ImposM upon
tbe the people, lor the inventors a'one nay
into the treasury more than sufficient tv fur
nish every! requisite.
In addition to tbc Icirislation repeatedly re
commendtd in relation Is section 4337 of
the Revised Statutes, it is very desirable that
section 4'J."ti be m> amended as to authorize
tbis cilice to refund from its current receipts
any sum or sacna of money to any person
who baa, through mistake, paid tbe same
into the treasury, or to any receiver or ;li
pnsltary, to the credit of the treasury, as for
fees accruing at til ; patent office. It has
frequently happened thai I- thus paid have
been covered into the treasury before it was
ascertained that they had been paid under a
mixapprcbentiiuu. In casts of this kind
special legislation is necessary to authorize
the treasury department to refund. Much
labor to tbis office and the treanuty' would
thus be saved, and persons would '>•• hb to
recover bum pai.l by aiiatak without peti
tioning congress. . . '.-'

pathy and concern of friends create a sub
tile separation between him and ou'Uide

contact with the unaccustomed or unex

Lost in reflection, he filled to observe that

saw a diguified gentleman in the undress of

tbc graceful form : not a scrap of lace or patch
of velvet marred the beauty of the costume,
but in the folds of filmy tulb/ which crossed

The little !.;n<l and sea locked port of San
Pedro is oddly mtuated. Whirr the water baa
in past *g< f boilowed a crescent from the
I cliffs and then receeded, years ago a little
Tillage was founded. Two miles north on
the crest of the cliffs, the Just battle between
i the Me xicsn and . United States
soldiers took place, and in a gtioalisn
grave-yard far from ■ anj habi
tation, repose the bones of tic slain
\ of our army, while out in the bay, ob a rocky
| eminence called Dead * Mia'i Island, th«
dead of tbe defeated warriors found their
sepulchre. One by one these graves have
bees rifled of their contents by the encroach
ment of tbe restless waves, until only a cou
ple now re main, with a snowy cross abore to
mart; their burial place. Half a mile to the
fcoutii U another kiag, low stretch of land,
shores of irUltfriuc white sand, studded with
curious pebbles an strewn with shells, to
which a l.tt> steamer daily pUf «, as well aa
to tbe distant mountainous - islands, ruing
like pVe Mm cloud* far out upon the ocean,
where rarth and sky appear to meet.
The i.t'Je modern town of San Pedro
nc«t!i;s in the crescent-sbaped hollow facing
the sea, with preciptous cliff* rising like
steep walls in its rear, and embracing It
north and south almost to the water's
edge. The entire Tillage lies so
low that a tide wave of ' jiodest
dimensions could with one mighty surge ob
iitt-rate it from the face of the earth. But
the fatal inhabitants dwell in peaceful secur
ity, and many restless city people find in tbe
quaint *]> »t, so abut off from tbe everyday
world, the repose acd isolation which they
annually seek as salvation from the wear and
'ear •>: petty cares. And so it has come to
pas* that every summer finds tbe homely
litUe cottages (ivirSu*iue with city guests,
and the low ground at the north angle of the
crescent and fronting the sea is dotted with
gay trnu all the season.
Here .1 chanced that one day In August,
when the waves were lapping the shore with
a sleepy surge, Stella Langdon and David
Woihlbury encountered each other. She »*.••
ssnalas herself on the Kami, while her little
sister built a mimic fortress by her side. A
■book lay untouched In the girl's lap, for the
hook ■ nature spread out before her was in

"1 do not understand you, sir." Her lips
tightened and her eyes sparkled with a dan
gerous light.
"Be honest In tbe interest of what re
formatory institution did you pursue that
m rrU-rird liuie beggar we encountered on Pa
rrt-t a monlii or two ago!"
"Mr. Woodbury, dtu you notice tbe con
dition of that child i Waaa I took bold of

little ones — the youngest one an infant at
the btaaat, the next that sukiv baby, and
tba oU ■en -year-old U>y in whose
care aba bad placed it that morning."
"Where wan the father!"

the mother tolled away at home, or I
limes went out witli her baby to do a day's

suffering with a severe cough for six months,
and they could do nothing for her but watch
her fade aray before their eyes."
'What did ana. advise- f"
"I persuaded them to take the little one
to tbe Children's Hospital, where I have a
friend — and a noble, good woman she Is —
who is a director. There the little thing was
put straight to bed, as sh- needed to be, and
nursed day and night, as sbe never could
have been at home."
"With whatreMilt?-'
"1 have a kfiar to-day from tbe matron,
who tells me my patient bas grown plump as
a partridge, and will be discharged in three
weeks rnori-, completely cured. Tbe father
has procured steady work in tbe country. and
takes his family there this week. L« t us
change the subject. Do you go bathing?"
I am afraid — "
"Of •tiogareesl" She laughed merrily,
and before be could finish bis explanation
somebody bad come up and swept her off on
a search for sea ferns, whose delicate fronds
were borne by tbe tide.
H* stood for an instant irresolute. Two
crushing revelations dawned upon him in
that moment. He had learned to appreciate
at last tbis noble, sympathetic woman: and
he knew, by a swift, unerring intuition, that
kbe despised him. He asked bliaself what
else be could have expected. A man irrev
erent of age, indifferent to tbe sufferings of
.childhood, and, above all, a coward! He
summed up bis rrvdeutlals with a bitter
laugh, as he fluug himself duwn ou tiie
bescb.
After this passagv-at-arms they mutually
avoided each other. Save wben they rw:
fare to face, they never exchanged a glance
of recosrnition. Yet Both mm- resolved to
concladv tbe season at Sao Pedro. One dsy
Misjt Langdan rode down to Wilmington lo
taice tbe train for Los Angeles. Sbe left her

with many charges and cautious, wbicb tbe

Mtniznc'a tirent < »nnnerrial Speculation.
In the spring of 1537 a merchant of Genoa
informed Balzac that, so great was the neg
lect of the government of Sardinia, there
were vast heaps of scori.w lying near the dis
used silver mines, formerly worked by the
Romans and other*, full of the lead in com
bination with which the silver had
been found, the lead also being believed itself
to contain « ii. 'lucrative quantity of tbo
more precious metals. The idea at once struck
Balzac that with the advanced chemistry of
the day, these nut; might be easily extract
ed from t'.ie refuse, and he engaged his mer
chant friend to Mini him some specimens of
the scoria , that be might submit them to
scientific people in Paris, and, if their re
port was favorable, he and the mer
chant was to apply for a concession to the
government, and undertake the extraction
of whatever was valuable in the scoria.
Balzac kept the project steadily in view, but
the merchant never sent the specimens, and,
indeed, privately obtained a concession for
himself. Moreover, a house at bad the
dead and refuse at Cagliari examined, and
at once applied for a sec
ond concession. An expert who tried the
scorite for this bouse found that they yielded
10 per ciiit. of silver, and therefore the
scheme was In no way devoid of feasibility.
A French chemist Lad promised to confide to
Baizac ainw in tbod of extracting metal from
ore si a I M expense thau by the usual pro
cesses; so that, when the time came fur him to
join iv partnership wail the Genoese mer
chant, lie considered himself prepared for
operation*, though Ihi non-arrival of the
specimens kept the plan in complete uncer
tainty. A full year had passed, and in April,
153!>,"h<j started for the sjatb, being deter
mined to examine the locality himself. Then
he found that he had been deceived. Of
course the world put this failure down as the
bursting of one more rainbow col
ored soap bubble blown by the romancer's
fancy; but except that to undertake any
commercial speculation wiluout capital
is to a certain extent chimerical, the
project was ingenious and well con
trived, and as Urn result showed, not wholly
unr»-niunerat;v,'. The letters to Mme.
llauska which have been mentioned conlain
amusing accounts of this exploration. He ob
served everything, though, as Maxitnc Duu
cimp Las r-ii.a.-K I, he seemed to look at
nothing. We see the Parisian celebrity on
