A WIDOW OF PENSIONS
A Ralls Cmiiuy Lady Received Three Distinct Pensions From Govern ment. Mrs. Malidda Mathews is a widow, and ir'-.ii'. in Ralls county una -i.v i seven miles south ol Mew Lond to, hut Bhe is very succ 1 ul id the way of receiving pensions. Her ttrsi husband waa named Bollinger who serve", n the civil war and is said to have been a brave soldier. Some jear alter Un close of the war Mr. llo linger died and the widow received a pension of 12,000! but in the meantime she married a man named Mathewa and the pen sion was divided among her four children Her second husband was also an old soldier and a pensioner, and after his death the widow drew a pension of $1,100 under what is known as the new law. Last week she was granted an other pension of j8 per month under the old law, on the death of her second husband, malting three separate and distinct pen sions that she has been granted on the death of her two hus bands. She is still a widow, i but it is said that she would not refuse to mairy another old soldier provided he was to her liking and would not object to receiving another pension. The Journal reporter was not informed as to the amount of t he arearages she received with lier last pension, but it is doubt f ul if there is another widow in the state who has been granted three separate pensions.

Recently, while counting over the clothes the housekeeper observed Aunt Marth t gazing at herself in the mirror. "What yo' think of this bon net, Miss Molly? It's new. 'It's very becoming," said the lady more politely than truthfully, "but Aunt Martha, I am afraid you are getting very extravagant. I am sure you are spending all you make in clothes. " "I certainly do that thing," said Aunt Maitha seriously. "I certainly do You see. I saved money once, and it was stole, and I said then, "I'll spend ez I go, ez I go,' Miss Molly, -and men i gets tiie good of it.'

The news paper goes to its reader and places itself iu his very hands every uay ot the week.
