OLD AGE PENSIONS PR0ESJS0CCESS Experiment Tried by Canada Is Encouraging to the Authorities. J CAN PURCHASE ANNUITIES MAY BE SECURED UNDER TWO PLANS, BOTH OF BENEFIT TO THE PURCHASER CAN'T BE TAKEN FOR DEBT8. (American News Service) Ottawa, Can., Dc. 24.-The Canadi an annuities act, which was passed by that government in 1908, and which provides facilities whereby Canadian citizens can make provisions for a pen sion, when they become too old to work, has proved so successful that the authorities are taking steps to in terest the large manufacturers in the scheme with the hope that the laboring men may reap these benefits through the activity of their employers. Since Sept. 1, 1908, there has been paid into the government annuities branch of the department of commerce and labor, f311 ,35ft. The annuities act embraces all wage earners, regardless of the smallness of the wage, and the alient features iu buying an annuity is that the purchas er invests his savings in making the best possible provision for old age, while the government is the trustee of the funds. Features of the Act. In the act, annuities are purchas able under two plans: First, whereby all payments, with 3 per cent com pound interest, would be returned to legal representatives: second, whereby the return contingency is eliminated, thus necessitating smaller payments. The earliest age at which payments on account of an annuity may be made is 55. No annuity will be paid until 55 years of age, and no annuity will exceed the sum of $600. But as the object primarily is to supply an income when earning powers have ceased, pro vision is made that in the case of in validity or disablement the annuity, if not less than $50, will be paid from that time. Should the amounts paid in be not sufficient to purchase an an nuity of $50, all payments made, with 3 per cent compound interest, will be re turned to the annuitant or his legal representatives. One of the features connected with the act is that the annuity cannot be seized for debt or forfeited in any way. There are no lapses or penalties, but amounts paid in can be withdrawn; otherwise the purpose of the act would be defeated. Perhaps the prominent feature of the system is the elasticity of payments. Payments may be made of 25 cents per week, or lump sums of dollars at a time, weekly, monthly quarterly or yearly. After periodical payments of any time the contract may be complet ed by a single payment. Annuities may be purchased for members of the family, with the stipulation that the annuitant die before the annuity is payable, the payments will be re turned to the purchaser or to his legal representatives. When the annuity is due it can be arranged that one-half shall be payable to the wife during her life. A last survivor annuity may be purchased to include self and wife, which annuity will be paid so long as either is alive. A Statement to tffiie FuMic The Boston Store is thoroughly in sympathy with the movement and agitation now abroad in the land to reduce the strenuous labors of the salesgirls and women to the mini mum. It is not at all surprising that there are so many nervous breakdowns among the fairer sex engaged in this line of work. It is now generally conceded that there is no labor in which women engage where both mental and physical strain is so constant and so great. Until further notice the Boston Store will open daily at 8 A. M close at 5:30 P. M. During the more quiet seasons of the year and whenever possible, one-half of the lady force will be excused at 5 P. M. For the present the store will be open on Saturday evenings as heretofore. We fully appreciate the fact that we are the servants of the people and do not take this advance step in an arbitrary, independent spirit. The success or failure, continuation and further improvement of this movement in Richmond is wholly in the hands and control of the purchasing public. If we find after a fair trial that it does not meet with endorsement and approval, we will again open and close our store as heretofore. We also desire at this time to express our thanks and appreciation for the very liberal patronage enjoyed during this, our fifteenth (15th) year in business. Wishing one and all a Merry Christmas, Happy and Prosperous New Year, we are, Sincerely, BOSTON STORE II. C.

If a Woman in Church Finds a Mouse in Her Hat, Her Course Of Action Is Subject for Good Debate. If the debating societies at the high school or at Earlham college are in need of some subject to wrangle over, the following has been suggested: "Would a woman, seated in a pew at church, who suddenly discovered that there was a mouse in her hat (not a rat in her hair) be guilty of a grave violation of church etiquette it she screamed? Or should she calmly await the conclusion of the sermon, then placidly walk out of the church, remove the offending rodent and re turn in time to participate in the con tributions?" A well known Richmond woman recently had the above referred to blood chilling experience. Like all of her sex (and a big majority of all other sexes that roam this earth) she has a particular aversion to mice. But, did Bhe scream and interrupt the learned discourse of the minister? She did not! This woman, after the first shock of her terrible discovery had worn off, decided that it would be a violation of all rules of the church to become bois terous. So, with Spartan-like courage, she awaited until the minister had finished his sermon of course it was a particularly long one then she walked out of the church, removed her hat, gave her tormentor its liber ty, then returned to her pew white of face, but still calm and dignified.
