Old Asre Pensions.
Simply speaking, the payment
an old age pension, say of a hundred
dollars each to every citizen, male
or female, who has passed the age of
seventy, does not involve a heavy
burden to the state.
Let us now consider for a moment
the advantages which the state, as
an organization, would receive from
such a system. As matters stand,
the managers of asylums, whether
for the poor, or perhaps for the blind,
or insane, or other invalids, are
always at their wits' ends to know
what they shall do with the aged
people who are crowded upon them.
The almshouses of towns and coun-
ties are filled in the same way.
Now, all these old people are bet-
ter cared for in the homes of old
neighbors, or old friends, very pos-
sibly of sons, or of daughters, who
would receive them and take charge
of them humanely if they could re-
ceive a little ready money for the
extra expense. As society organizes
itself, a very little money goes a
great way in the average household
of an American. The moment that
it appears that a grandfather or a
grandmother has a hundred dollars
a year to his good, that moment we
shall find that the burden thrown
upon the state and town in their
asylums is reduced by a larger pro-
portion than by the charge made by
the pensions upon the treasury. Thus
the pension system has the great ad-
vantage that it maintains life in
homes, and that it abates the neces-
sity for great institutions or asylums.

Death of Milton Falkenstein.
Milton Falkenstein died at the
home of his parents, four miles north
of town, Saturday, after a protracted
struggle with typhoid fever. The
funeral was held at the Christian
church Sunday afternoon and was
largely attended by the townspeople
as well as by the neighbors of the
family. The sermon was preached
by the young man's pastor, Rev.
Wrentmore, and the pall-bearers
were the young men of his neighbor-

Milton was the eldest son of Mr.
and Mrs. Frank Falkenstein. Re
had attended church and school in
Chandler for several years and was
as well known and highly esteemed
as in his home vicinity. He united
with the Christian church several
years ago and has been most faith-
ful in attendance upon the various
services and in his observance of the
teachings of the gospel- The past
winter he taught school and achieved
success in that undertaking. Al-
together he was a young man of
more than ordinary promise and abil-
ity. He had a natural refinement
and geniality of manner which at-
tracted and held the general regard
of the communities in which he was
known. It is a sad blow to the pa-
rents, brother and sisters, and a loss
to his many friends. Yet the exam-
ple of a bright young christian man-
hood remains as a consolation and
