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 I 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 contro led 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 PolicyhoIners 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 RATION. "The Company has a capital stock of $500,0O0 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 IULATION 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."

Our life for a day is but an epitome of a lifetime. We wake in the morn ing with no knowledge of where our souls have been wandering while our senses slept: with fresh vigor and interest we enter upon the occupa tions and interests of our daily work, and fulfil our duties with a vigor which begins somewhat :o fail as the evening shadows lengthen. As dark ness deepens. the freshness and strength which marked the early hours of the day give place to weari ness, and at last we are glad to lay aside our work and cares and to surrender ourselves to the sleep which so closely resembles death, even though we have no certainty that we shall ever wake to see the light of another day. But although "to-day" was not an institution of man. how wonderfully helpful it is to him in the fulfilment of the duties of life, and in bearing its -burdens and sorrows. Each day has its own alloted task, and it is seldom more than we have strength to perform. It is only when we go beyond that which was given us for the day, and force the tired mind and body to go on and on doing what might well be left till the morrow; when we are not content to bear the evils of the day, but harass .our souls by anticipating those the future may bring: when we are not satisfied with the "daily bread," for which One wiser than we taught us to pray, but strive to "lay up much goods for many years;" when the pleasures tha: were given us to enjoy in mod eration degenerate into wild excesses; that nature takes revenge for the neglect of her laws, and sanatoriums and lunatic asylums are filled with the victims of ill-regulated lives. To heal:hy, well-balanced minds the thought of "to-day." with its duties and pleasures. is an ever fresh delight. After a feeling of gratitude for the protection that has shielded us during the helpless hours of darkness, and for the sleep that brought refreshment to mind and body. the thoughts turn with pleas ant anticipations to the 'ccupations of the day w.hich has just begun: and if. on entering on those occupa tions we ask for gu!iiance and a strength greater than our own. we need not fear that they wiji prove more than we ran periorsi. Duties of some kind are almoist essential to one's happiness: and vwe do not envy those to whom the morning brings the thought that it matters nothing how the day is spe-it, since they have nothing to do for themselves or others that is of the least importance. Still less to be envied are those who. having duties, shrink from doing them, through indifference, indolence or a dislike for the sort of work they are entgaged in. It is true.:bat: many are compe!!ed. by circutmstances. to umler- take tasks for which ther. have and mrwiEingly, :he more especially .i miatter how unpleasant or how hunble the drudgery that wins one's daily bread. it may be lightened and inade lezs repulsive by undertaking it cheerfuliv and conscientiously. D),ne in such a spirit. what is hard and(1 disagreeable loses half its rks.am~feness or us. There is an' ther thought in con nectin with "To-dav which it is well for us to remember each morn ing when thinking of our gratitude and our engagements, which is that it is not given us to be spent entirely upon ourselves. One rarely stands so ailone in the world that he ha; no oi-e in the least dependent upon him for care Ir kindness. If he is so unior tunate as to have no family ties of aInv kind. t-er are at leas: those of riendship, o: there are acq.An1tanceS !o wh.

Ail so in plannln the davs work w: can al.o olan -V (Wed of kindness to be ritne during the day. For lack (f such 1thogh 1 many opportumnties (t, dugol escape us: and we believe :at it is not so much from a lack of sympathy with and compassion for p verty anI suffering that there is 0o ch of both in the world., as it is from thoughtlessness znd absorp tion in one's own concerns, on the part of those having means to relieve it. Had the priest and the Levite not been so wrapped up in the contemplation of their own im portance and dignity and in the thought of their special duties, they might have won the meed of praise which will cling to the "Good Samari tan" so long as the world endures. When the opportunity of doing a kind act to any ,oi those among whom our lot in life is cast occurs to us, we should do it "to-day;" to-morrow it may be-almost certainly will be-too late, and such chances do not often repeat themselves, and the recollec tion of such an opportunity being neglected, when it is too late to re pair the fault, can cost us many a tear and pang of self-reproach. The division of time into days, each separated from the other by an inter val of repose and unconsciousness, is one of the greatest blessings to those upon whom some heavy sorrow has fallen. What poor human heart would fail to break if the overwhelm _ng sense of loss and grief of that first day after some dearly loved one has been taken from earth were to' be endured without any respite? in the fres'hness of our affliction we can not believe that a time will ever come wvhen we shall be able to bear our loss quietly and patiently, as it becomes us to bear whatever affBic tioyn comes from the hand of Our Loving Father. It is possible that at first sleep is banished by the sharp ness of our pain; but exhausted na ture cannot be denied and at last a merciful slumber falls upon the sens es, and for a while grief is forgotten. But how terrible the fresh realization of it that comes with the morning light. Day after day this is repeated, each one restoring somewhat the nat ural tone to the mind. and accustom ing us to our loss; the world around us5 goes on as usual, and whether we will or not, we must take our share in its work. We do not forget nor cease in the smallest degree to love our lost friend, but the living claim more and more our love and care: and wve learn more and more to nind comfort in the thought that they who: have beenr taken fromi us "are in joy andI felici ty." and that our separation wviil not be eternal. Like balm to the wound ed heart comes the assurance that fell from lips which never uttered unaught but truth: "Today thou shalt be with Me in p)aradise:" and because of that promise we can wait for that blessed reunion; knowing that He who prom ised was ''Tesuis Christ. the same yes terday, t oday and forever."
