About 90 names a day are dropped from the pension rolls. This average Is equivalent to about iiVu deaths a month, or about 32.000 annually among federal survivors of the war carried along on the pension How many survive who are not on the pension roll is not recorded In the pension office or the adjutant general office ol the War Department. The orflcials refer to these unrecorded soldiers as the "unknown army." and there Is such an army of survivors on both sides, confederate as well as union.

Many of them belong to Grand Army posts or Confederate Veteran camps, but there are undoubtedly a number who are neither pensioners nor Identified with organizations. Every once in a while a survivor of the war who had been lost sight of turns up In some out-of-the-way corner of the world and applies for a pension through a congressman or under general statute. Vanishing Army. The old soldiers of both armies are vanishing rapidly. Just how many survive, will not be known1 until after the completion of the thirteenth census, and can only be approximated now outside ot those whose names are carried on the pension rolls as having served In the Union army.

There is no such record of the confederates, for they get no general pensions, and their names and places of residence are not a matter of official record. A number of confederate soldiers can be located through the rolls of the veteran camp in the South, but these records are not nearly so complete as those of the (irand Army of the Republic. The law providing for the taking of the census of 1910 stipulated that there should be Included a tabulation of number ot union and confederate soldiers and sailors living. The census ot 1900 continued no such tabulation.
