The  Daily  Evening  Democrat
Wednesday, October 3, 1883
          We have received, through  Senator Voorhees,  a complete list of pensioners who receive pay upon the roll.  Upon looking over the Shelby county list we find that there are 218 who receive during the year $21,909, over $1,800 per month.  The sums paid vary from $72 per month down to $2.  Some are unquestionably entitled to all they get and others who step up to the Captain's office and draw their pay every quarter are to all appearances the most robust and able-bodied men in the county.
