A JIajority of Them Will Get Increase of Pensions The Oldest Pensioner in County. The new pension law recently passed by congress has been signed by the President and already pensioners who come under the law are Bending in their applications. The law fixes the pensions of old soldiers according to their ages. Those over 62 and under 70 years will receive $12 a month, over 70 and under 75 years of age, $15 a month, and those over 75 years, $20 a month. This will not affect those who already receive pensions under other pensions laws above the figures mentioned above. The above figures are the minimum that men of these ages can receive. There are probably 2,500 pensioners in Leavenworth county, including those in the Soldiers' home, who will come under the new law; in fact very few of those who saw service in the Civil war are under the age limit of 62 years, fixed by the new law. The oldest pensioner in Leavenworth county is believed to be John Byers who is 97 years of age. TEACHERS WILL MEET They Will Discuss Matters at the Court House Tomorrow.

The streets are dry, the world is clear, The sunlight is amazing; Why does the maiden pout and sigh When outward she is gazing. Why does she frown on Jack's advance, No word of pleasure saying? It is because she got engaged In hopes of early sleighing. The storm clouds fly, the world is cold With slippery roads amazing: Why does the matron weep and sigh Upon her prospect gazing? Why does she frown on Jack's advance The dreary outlook dreading? It is because she married him In hopes of easy sledding. McLandburgh Wilson. Army Wedding. Lieutenant G. G.

Christianla, Norway. ' On the northernmost coast a bottle has been washed ashore containing letters and a packet of tobacco. The letters, which were written in Icelandic, showed that this messenger from the sea came from the Vestmanna islands, which are situated off the southern coast of Iceland. The few inhabitants of these wild, inhospitable islands have no communication with the outside world except by "bottle post." Whenever they want to communicate with the Icelanders, their nearest neighbors, they place their letters in a bottle, adding some tobacco as a gift to the finder, who is expected to forward the letters to their destinations. The bottle is then carefully sealed and thrown into the sea when a south wind is blowing, so that the current generally carries it to the Icelandic shores. The bottle in question, however, evidently got out of its course, and had taken fully 12 months to reach the Norwegian coast, a distance of over 1,000 miles, roughly speaking. Hopeless.
