THE TIMES, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 15, 1910. 9 NEW CIVIL SERVICE PENSION SYSTEM. (By Fraxcis Geouge Heath.) Having spent forty - two years of a somewhat strenuous life inside the Civil Service and having served the cause of Briti?h Government employee for more than eight years as Vice - Chairman of the Ci - il Servant' Deferred Pay Executive Committee, the present writer is gratified that a Cabinet Minister has now presented to those who have brought about a great reform in the Government pension system tome token of appreciation.

Christ's 15 : i Clause It is eviden to us that there it not wise that the Sta those alone who si widespread expedient that a more general System of help should They proceeded to carry out tliis mendation bv tucestinr: that when Servant died prematurely his dependants should receive one year's pay ; and that be also should have a bonus of a year s pay if he would consent to pay for it by agreeing to accept as superannuation allowance forty - eightieths of his salary instead of forty - sixtieths for each year of service. That is to say, that when he had served the usual maximum period of 40 vears he should obtain as pension a half instead of two - thirds of his retiring oaiary. The New System. A considerable amount of discussion took place in the Civil Service as to the offered terms ; a plebiscite was taken to ascertain the views of those interested, and then some negotiation with the Government was begun. It was .contended that, in nil the circumstances, two years' instead of one year's pay should be the bonus if the severe conditions of the half - salary pension instead of two - thirds were enforced. The contention has ended in a sort of compromise, which lias been stereotyped by the new Pension Act, Briefly its provisions - compulsory for new entrants but optional for those in the Sor - ice before the passing of the new Act are that about a year and a half's pay, based on the amount of the salary given just before retirement, should be allowed in addition to the annual forty - eightieths, and, should the prospective recipient predecease the pensionable period, his legal representatives should be paid a bonus of one year's pay. This arrangement is adjustable to any period of service by the provision that he should be pud a lump sum, equal to one - tbirtieth of the annua alary and emolumonta of his office, multiplied by the e additional alio .

But a fuller knowledge of its character has dissipated that erroneous view, a. j it is now recognized at gout is no respecter 01 persons, Dut seizes its grip rich and poor, with but little dis - It is to the presence of an excess of uric acid the system that all gouty affections owe their origin. Theories are rtfo as to now ana where the substance is formed, but, what - spurce and origin, it i generally agreed that the kidneys are mainly concerned in ttmg rid 01 it, ana tnai any impairment, ui The liver is also acid, and thus when this most important organ becomes deranged sluggish or congested uric acid is permitted to remain in the body and there to work some mischief. GOUT BEGINS AT MIDDLE AGE that caused the distressing suffering The time taken to effect this clearance varies, depending, of course, upon the duration of tho disease. If Bishop's Varalettes are started at an early .stage a very short course - - suffiMa to do all that is necessary, but in the mora chronic forms naturally a more prolonged course of treatment will be required. In either case after the desired result has been attained, their occasional employment will keep the kidneys in perfect working order and assist them to filter away the uric acid as it is formed, and consequently ward off threatened attacks, and keep the system in a sound state of health. It should be remembered that Bishop's Vara - lettee are entirely innocuous, no matter how long it may be necessary to continue their use. They can never produce any ill effects or unpleasant consequences. They are equally suit' able for the most delicate as well as for the most robust constitution, and their effects cannot in any circumstances be anything but beneficial. Another do in connection with Bishop's Varalettes they do not contain any sugar, and so are suitable for gouty subjects from every point ol view. Bishop's Varalettes are equally effective as a preventive. They should, therefore, be taken regularly by all those who have airy reason to suspect the existence of gout in their system, although it may not have developed to any appreciable extent. PROGRESS OF GOUT. If the sufferer neglects the warnings given, very soon more serious troubles show them selves, and the disease takes on one or more of the advanced forms of gout.
