J. B. Purdy tells interestingly of his
trip to Japan and the city of Vladivostok.
Mr, Purdy is well-known in Hilo, having
beeu master mechanic for the Hllo Rail
road Co. He finds no place with a better
climate, or more attractive than Hilo;
though he goes soon to Honolulu to
accept a position offered. He says the
opportunities for foreigners iu Japan arc
few, in business, or the proiessions. The
Japanese have wonderful ability as
imitators and have adopted all foreign,
especially American, ideas, so readily
and fully that thcie is no competing with
them. They are a superior race physic
ally and can endure much hardship. The
country is thickly populated and the
streets of the larger cities are filled with
a mass of people, so that ou occasions, as
on the great holiday, Jan. i, it is impos
sible to get about. In parades, four
wheeled carts drawn by hand are much
used; pennants fly everywhere and imita
tlon cherry blossoms, the national flower,
apparently, are omul-present.
Mr. Purdy was iu Vladivostok, the
Pacific port for Russia's railway, iu Jan
uary. The harbor is large and secure
and the bay on which the city is situated,
as well as the olope from the bay, appear
similar to those of Hllo. The harbor was
nearly Ice-bound, ingress and egress were
made possible for ships by the use of
powerful ice-breaking rams. Mr. Purdy
drove with a double team ovet sixteen
miles of ice near the city. The business
part of Vladivostok and the wharves were
burned a few months ago during riots
Much of interest for the tourist was

Manager The Mutual Life Insurance Co. of New York.
Dear Sir: I have received policy for $30,000, issued to mc in favor of mv
daughter on tire continuous instalment plan.
My daughter is but eighteen years of age, and this contract guarantees to her
,(1,000 at my death, and $1,000 per annum as long as she lives, nnd to pay not
less than twenty installments even if she should not live twenty years after my
death. The reason I am so much pleased w 1th this policy is based upon the
fact that I fully realize, that no matter how much money I might leave my
daughter ot my death I would have no guarantee that it would last her throuch
her entire lifetime.
The Company's liability under this form of cqntract might be $50,000 or pos
sibly $70 000, if my daughter should live to be as old as some of her ancestors.
Yours very truly, Israkl W. Marshall.
