The Millinery Stores Display Latest

Designs-The Rain Interferes.
Last Tuesday was what is known
as :opening day in Newberry. The
millinery stores put on their prettiest
looks an'd everything was in holiday
attire. The rain which we so much
needed came about midday but it did
not keep the ladies at home. They
went from the city and came from the
:ounty and from the adjacent towns.
The Newberry milliners have long
been noted for 'their 'taste in making
bhe prettiest hats and the ladies in
wearing the handsomest dresses. The

Among a few of the dress hats for
ladies was a very pretty large black
hat trimmed wi-vh two large white
plumes, one underneath the brim and

One -of the prettiest hats shown

The ohildren's' hacs- were, if any
hing, prettier than they 'have ever
been heretofore. The large flat hats
seem to be the favorite shape for lit
tle folks; they were prettily trimmed
in all the leading shades of ribbon.
One of them that attracted a great
deal of attention was a large black
bat with an exquisitely made top and
two large black plumes.
Altogether the display was a suc

-Of late the magazines and daily
papers have had much to say by way
of criticism of certain life insurance
companies, and especially with regard
to the legal organizations of such com
panies, and of the manner of their
control. These criticisms do not ap
ply to the Pacific Mutual Life Insur
ance company of California, but dem
onstrate the truth of the assertion
that 'for policyholders The Pacific
Mutual has the best legal organiza
".It is not. controlled by one or two
men having no pecuniary interest or
responsibility save as policyholders
*r recipients of salary, but is controll
ed by a board of fifteen directors, not
mere dummies, but stockholders in
their own right, holding a large
amount of the company's stock, and
policyholders as well. The directors
of the company are men of high fi
nancial and commercial standing, and
by law made responsible for the acts
of the officers of the corporation.
"The Pacific Mutual Life Insurance
company has a capital stock of $5oo,
ooo fully paid up in gold coin. While
this capital and the stockholders' re
sponsibility afford to policyholders
th6 greatest security, it costs partic
ipating policyholders nothing, but
every dollar paid into the company by
them, and the accumulation thereon,
is applied for their benefit. There is
no other life insurance company
traisacting 'business in Ameri-ca wihose
policyholders, by legal enactment,
are so safe-guarded as are the pqli
cyholders of the Pacific Mutual Life
Insurance company of California.
To these measures for lasting se
curity the Pacific 'Mutual adds bene
fits and provisions of enusual merit.
A policy in the Pacific Mutual is con
sequently a perfect contract of in
surance which arms and defends at
all points for all time, and can be pos
itively relied .upon to effect the aims
of the policyiholder."
