AN ACED WHITE OAK.
On the farm of John Mix, which
is situated two and one-half miles
from Centre Square, on the old
Cheshire road, there grows a large
white oak tree. Jt grows from the
top of a large bowlder whose aver
age height is about eight and one
half feet. From the ground where
the rock stands the tree, as nearly
as can be ascertained, measures
about sixty feet to the top. The
surface of the rock is about eighteen
by twenty-two feet, and the base
of the tree on its surface is spread
like putty. The main body of the
tree grows in and through the nearly
a foot wide fissures of the rock,
hidden from public view, except a
narrow root on the outside, which
grows to the ground below, thirteen
feet. Above tlio rock the trunk
measures seven feet. It is curious
to sec the way the tree has grown
aroud the projection of the rock and
has lilted itself to the curves and
grooves. From the highway the
tree appears to be about sixty or
seventy feet broad. The general
supposition is that the tree must bo
nearly two hundred years old, as it
was two-thirds as large when the
present occupant of the farm, John
Mix, was a boy, and now he has
reached his eighty-fifth year. His
father also lived and died on this
farm, and as long as he could re
member it was a good-sized tree.

The reason why Mr. Morrison and
his free trade brethren want to
tinker the tariff is that our indus
tries maj' be placed on a firm basis
"just as tlicy arc in England, you
know." In order to show how
"firm" the English basis is, take
this statement from a recent issue
of the Yorkshire Post: "If the
building of ships on the Tees and
other northern rivers were entirely
stopped for half a dozen years it
would hardly be sulllcient to bring
that and the industries depending
upon it back to their normal condi
tion. If you compare the out-put
of the shipyards, the rolling mills,
the engineering establishments, and
the minor trades that thrive or lan
guish with the construction of ves
sels during the past year with the
business done in 188-1, you will find
that there has been a falling off of
from 30 to -10 per cent, within the
twelve months." Can Mr. Morrison
find any such "firmness" as that in
our "protection-cursed" country?

1st Tho Society hmiesall the approv
ed forms of insurance, including Old.'
nary Life, Endowment and Tontine pc.
llcics. It is immaterial to the Dlrcctois
which loim of policy is taken by in
2d The Lifo and Endowment forms
of policy provide for annuai cash divi
denda and a surrender value; are India
tunable after three years and payable
immediately after proof of death.
3d Tho premiums on a Toutino po
licy are tho same as on tlio Ordinary
Lite, but, while tho latter is only pay.
able in tho event ol dtath, tho holder of
tho Tonliuo policy has tho right to draw
the whole of the reserve and tlio accu
mulated profits in cash at tlio cud of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, atter his producing years aro past,
ho can, without any larger premium
than on an oidhiary policy, secure theso
4th Experience shows that tho return
paid in cash on maturing Tontine po
licies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holder so that the averago cost of tho
assurance will be only about tho interest
on tho premiums.
0th Tontino policies, like others, aro
paid in lull iu the event of death at any
time during tlio term of tho policy, and
aro incontestable after three years, nnd
payablo immediately after duo proof of
0th Experience shows that the mor
tallty is lower among Tontine policy,
holders, as tho better lives seek this
kind of assurances, which is a consider
able source of prolit.
7th Tontino policies will bo made
non-lorfoitable under tho laws of the
State, if bo desired at the timo the as
surnnco is effected.
bth The Tontine system is fair anil
just; its accounts aro accurately kept,
separate iiom all other business; tlio
fuuds judiciously Invested and improv
ed, and tho accumulated piollts lalth
fully guarded and pioperly appoitioned.
9th The Society has smco its orguni

while its now business lor the first halt
