Premier Diamond Mine.
Estimates of the diamonds in the
Premier mine, near Pretoria, in which
the 3-032 carat stone was recently
found, are that the total production
may be worth $600,o00,o00. Last year
it earned over 8oo per cent dividend,
and its stock is selling at 144 times
par. It is outside the De Beers dia
mond trust and is selling its product,
with no syndicate restrictions, at the
high prices which the trust makes
and molds the market to. The trust's
policy has been to restrict output and
keep prices pegged artificially,
a hard thing to do with a new and
independent company of immense
productive capacity in the field.
Probably we shall learn that it has
been absorbed into the trust one of
these days, and a disturbing element
in the diamond trade thus neutralized
till another e". deposit is discovered.

Up and Down With the Bishop.
Bishop Drdley of Kentucky was
much addicted to sport, especially
liking to hunt and fish. Once, when
on a shooting trip, the bishop chanced
to fall in with an old mountaineer
who, according to Representative 01
lie James, took a great fancy to his
new acquaintance, whom he did not
in the least suspect was a bishop.
When Bishop Dudley was preparing
for his return home he invited the old
man to visit Louisville, so that he
might hear him preach.
"Preach?" gasped the old moun
taineer. "What, vou preach! Kin
you preach as well as you kin shoot?"
"Much .etter," responded the bish
op. smilingly. "Be sure and come
some Studay. I'll see that you get a
good seat in front."
The old man availed himself of the
invitation thus extended. At the con
clusion of the service he quickly
sought out his friend, the bishop, and
grasped him by the hand.
'Mr. Bishop," he cried enthusias
tically. "I don't know much about

THE PACIFIC 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 criti
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
Thej Pacific Mutual, but DEMON
STRATE the Truth of the AssertionI
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 controlled 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 C'nmpany by them and the ACCU
MULATION thereon, is applied to
their BENEFIT. There is no Other'
IFE INSURANCE COMPANY trans-~
acting business in America whose Pol
icyolders, by Legal enactment, are so
Safe-guarded as are the Policyholders
of The Pacific Mutual."
