A PENSION RULING. What RII Old SoJdler Slast Show licfore fiecurlnff an Increase of PcnMlon. WABinysTO'. Feb. 11.—Assistant Secretary John M.

He decided that where a soldier pensioned for deafne'ss • walks alongside a railroad track for the purpose of making a "short cut" from his home to another part of the city and is struck by a car and injured, the Injury is primarily due to his own negligence and only secondarily and remotely, if at nil, to his deafness. To establish u claim for increase of pension on account of injuries alleged t.o have been incurred by reason of the disability for which pensioned, it must be clearly and satisfactorily shown that the -accident resulting -in such injuries was directly occasioned by the preexisting disability and wns in no wise due to negligence or carelessness on the part of the claimant or to the luck of that care and'X'aution which ordinary prudence would dictate should- be exercised by one in a crippled condition or not in the normal enjoyment of all his faculties. _ MAY HAVE TO BE TRIED OVER.
