authority of law, and for the enrich

over issue and fraud is variously es
timated at from ten to thirty millions
of dollars. The fact of the frauds
and over issues is apparent. And
this is in a Gov?jjb??nf?iu which the
tax-pa??tffi&irs!?)ad no voice or rep
resentation. For every wrong there
must be a remody. And this with
States as well as individuals. The
tax-payers of the -tate have na.in
tention of ever paying a .single"dol
lar of ^^q^citfaror interest of the
bonds* OVTOTCK whit h have thus been
fraudulently issued. A nd of this they
advertised the public, in solemn form,
on the 12th of May, 1871.
The fact that there were fraud-f
was made apparent to ihem.? Thf^
extent of the fraafdJat?rSover issue

(?till enough was ascertained in their
three ?lays' session to sound the
voice of camion and of warning.
One example will suffice. M;r.r

12th of I>ecemueO870. had stated
the whole amount of bonds, then is

Of the -withdraQl |o|.?ie >cgtra

So satisfied, however, were they of

Whereas, by the Act of the 26th j

issued, purporting,to bind the.proper-,

void, as having been issued cor
ruptly, improvidently and for fraud
ulent purposes, and in derogation of
thje. rights of that portion of the peo
ple of this State; upon whom the
public burdens ?r? made to rest.' "
These, .resolutions, unanimously
adopted,.wereat--once a notification
and certificate to the world of the
fr^udulsrrt character, of any ' bonds
thereafter issued. And this, because
it was then ascertained that no such
bonds could be honestly issued. Tho

The first remedy for this monstrous

. The Wild Woman.
Gebhartsville. Somerset county,
Pa., clkims the sensation of the
weeks. It has a genuine, simon-pure
wild woman, almost as nude as was
Eve after the fal I/for she wears only
an apron of leaves, sandals of bark,
and a necklace of tea-berries. Swift
as a doe, people have rarely been
able to see her features distinctly in
her visits to the neighboring farm
houses and out-skirts of' the village ;
yet those who have seen her declare
that she is far from uncomely in per
ron and countenance. Pier oval face
is set with keen black eyes, ami
framed in long masses of flowing
black hair; ami with her tall, slen
der figure, she has I he air of tile
queen of the forests. Like most
women, she has a great dread of men,
and bonds away over fences and
lields whenever one atteints to ap
proach her. Yet she is consistent,
and avoids in like manner too great
familiarity with wemen.
For children, "however, she seems
to" have a'gre?t fonduess, as was c.x
emplifiod only a ic-w days past.
While gassing near thc house of a
farmer she espied ai lii'tl? girl three
or four years old, playing in the
road. Crouching, she crawled be
hind a fence until within a short dis-:
tance-of the child, ;.then, with a
; bound, cleared the fence, in the next
moment seized the screaming little
}-enera?d-was away at the top of ber
speed. The mother hearing the
eereamsTof her ctpld. pursued, scream
ing yet more loudly. Her husband,
attracted,by the cries of both, ba?
tened to-the scene. The"vwild? i.wo?
?man. fi^r?ijj* her self encumbered. by1
the weight of the child, dropped it
and escaped. The latter was uninju
red, with the exception of some
.?cratelies,-; Which, iK*;db?b^ are attrib
qta hie-tp the long pails of the: strange
denizon of the fields and forest.

READ THE F'tfLXOWEVG : v Vj
A lengthened expenence has demonstrated that the rates of Premium ordinarily '
charged Dy Life laurance Comranies are from twenty-five to thirty per cent, in excess
of what are necessary for a safe '. and legitimate conduct' of the' business. In other
words, carefully and prudently-managed Companies charging -"Mutual" rates have
been able to r?jttmtoitfteirp?bcyhcfiders from 25 to 30 percent, of .the; amouijtdfiarged
When Life Insurance Companies1 were first organisedptbq -reliability of the data
noon which the premiums were constructed h?d not underdone the" test of experience,
l it was thought, therefore, no more than common prudence to adopt a scale of premiums,
which would, ;iri any event, meet all the presumed and unforeseen contingencies of th?
business. . 1 . "' ,; . )VA A\
As long as the matter was involved in some doubt, it was better to fix the rate too
high than.to incur the risk.of m?king it too low ; beeause.'in thelormer case, the error
could be easily remedied, at least in part, by returning to the policyholders, ai certain
intervals,. such, portion of .the premium charged as. was found unnecessary 'tor. the
purposes of'.thebusin?ss^nd the complete security of the Company. ? : ?- '
"Experience, however, having satisfactorily demonstrated that these ratee -ire exces
sive, what possible excuse can there be for maintaining them ? .,
Availing themselves ?f;thi8 experience; the Directors and Managers of the Universal
Life Insurance Company, at its organization, adopted a scale of premiums in accor
dance therewith*'and'wh?ch' has proved to be fair and adequate? and all that was.
necessary to meet the requirements of the business. These premiums'are'about'tweaty
'fivje per cent. loweFtfian those charged by. Mutual Companies.
It also appeared, inasmuch as the rates so established were-as near as could possibly
be ! determined- fair rates, and not in exegss of what Insurance has previously, coif the .
[Policyholders in Mutual Companies, that any profits arising from prudent manage
m?nt'-justly and properly belonged to the stockholders -cf the Company, for the*psk
incurred by them iii qndertaking'the business. . ... ?1.
Experience has shown that there are sources of profit in the practice of the business
fsrHich theory wjUinof'adraitiof being considered as elernent? m the .calculation of the
premiums. These results frcm a saving in the mortality of the members of a Com
pany owing to the medical selection of good lives, again in interest on;t~i? investments
of !tne Company dvev ?l?at assumed in the calculation bf'its premiums, the'profits
derivable from the lapsing and surrender of.Policies by the members, and from other
Profits from these sources, in a Company possessed of a capital of $200,000, and do
ing a fair amount of business, would give to the stockholders dividentis larg?ryii?1 ex
cess of what were counted on .by the Directors of the Universal\&\ the time of its
organization. They haver therefore, determined, to divide among the policyholders of
[ the Company a.large part of the profits accruing fromtiie source^ named, alt of which
I have heretofore been "divided among the stockholders.
The plan adopted for such division is.as follows : Every person.who may hereafter
insure with the Universal will, for the purposes of division, be treated as a stockhol
der to the extent of one Annual Premium upon his Policv ; and will share in Ote profits
?of ?he Company to precisely the sameextent'as a Stockholder owing an equal amount
of ?he capital slock.
By this-system of/Insurance, original with thc Universal, the policyholder secures
the fellowing important advantages :
FIRST. Lisurance at Oie regular"" Stock" rates, requiring a primary''outlay of
about twenty Ao ihirly pan eenl .less, thain that cliarged by Mutual Companies, ana
which is equivalen' to ? yearly " dividend" paid in advance of that amount on mv.tual
rates. This ow cost of insurance is worthy of attention. Since its organization .this
Company has received in premiums from its policyholders the sum of $1,517,000. ' To
effect the same amount of insurance in a Mutual "Company would have cost them an
initial outlay of $2,000,000. By allowing its policyholders to retain in their own pos
session this excess of $483,000, the Universal has virtually paid them a " diudend" of
$483,000, and paid it, too. in advance, instead of at the end of one or more years. It;
is 'inpossible io find any example of a. Mutual Company furnishing insurance at_,so
low a cost by returning to its policyholders an equal amount upon similar receipts. ~
bf premium, must necessarily secure to the policyholders every possible advantage to
be derived from prudent and careful management.
'the low rates of premium compel economy, and, independent of participation,
^uarantee to the policyholder his insurance at a rate which is not' in?&xcess of tne cost
, iii well managed mutual companies ; while, by the proposed plan of participation in
j what may be considered thc legitimate profits of the business, the cost will be still
. Thus by thc combined advantages arising from low stock rate and participation in
the profits it is confidently believed that the UNIVERSAL LIFE INSURANCE
COMPANY offers insurance at its lowest practicable cost.
Jf?C* Those of the existing Policyholders who desire to participate in the. Profits
under thc new Plan can db so" by making appHWriop-to tjie . liead Office, or to any- of
the Agents of the Company.
Hie Company is in a sound financial condition.
