The stubject of this memoir. James
Caleb Cook, was born in Newberry
manhood he gave himself to the
Lord by confirmation. and lived -
Consistent Christian throughout his
long life: an example to all.
When the tocsin of xar sounded
and South Carolina called her sons to
take up arms ir her deiense he
pr PimpC responded. Il e was a mem
b-:r of Ct. HI.. Third Regiment. S. C.
V. (Capt. 1). A. Dickert's company.)
fc went through this terrible strig
,ie unhurt and returned to his native
cot,rnty to rebuild his home. He was
married in 1865 to Miss Elizabe:h
Sheeley, who together with seven
children, survives him.
When Mt. Pilgrim churc'h: was or
ganized he was a charter member and
was elected elder, which office he
held unti! 'his death.
Our departed brother was fOr 12 or
more years superintedent of Mt.
Pilgrim Sunday School, giving his
best efforts to the training of the
youth, for in them he recognized the
future workers of the church and the

THE PACIHC MUTUAL
Life Insurance Cnmpany of California
Organized 1868 on "Old Line" Plan.
Read what one who is recognized au
thority on the subject, has to say: "Of
late the magazines and daily papers
have had much to say by way of critit
cism of certain Life Insurance Compa
nies, and especially with regard to the
Legal Organization of such Companies,
and of the manner of their control.
These CRITICISMS do not apply to
The Pacific Mutual, but DEMON
STRATE the Truth of the Assertion
that 'for POLICY-HOLDERS The
Pacific Mutual has the BEST Legal
organization." It is not controlled by
ONE or Two men, having no pecuniary
interest or responsibility save as policy
holders, or recipients of salary; But it
is controled by a BOARD of fifteen
Directors, not mere dummies, but Stock
holders in their own right, holding a
large amount of the Company's stock,
and Policyholners as well. The Direc
tors of the Company are men of high
Financial and Commercial standing, and
are by LAW'made RESPONSIBLE for
the acts of the Officers of the CORPO
"The Company has a capital stock of
$500,000 Fully paid up in GOLD coin,
but while this Capital. and the Stock
holders' responsibility afford to Policy,
holders the GREATEST possible Secur
ity, it Costs participating Policyholders
NOTHING, but every dollar paid into
the Company by them and the ACCU
MULATION thereon, is applied to
their BENEFIT. There is no Other
LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY trans.
acting business in America whose Pol
icyholders, by Legal enactment, are so
Safe-guarded as are the Policyholders
of The Pacific Mutual."
