THE PACIFIC MUTUAL
Life Insurance Cnmpany of California
Organized J r S 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
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 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 tha GREATEST possible Secur
ity, it Costs participating Policyholders
NOTHING, but every dollar paid into
the C,mpany by them and the ACCU
MULATION thereon, is applied to
their BENEFIT. '1here 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."

Jackson, liss.. Evening News.
The colleges of- this country will
this nionth and next turn out their
graduates. These graduates will go
forth into the world armed with their
d'plonas to do and to dare.- The av
erage college boy is inclined to the
belief that his diploma represents to
him the sum total of human knowl
edge and experience, and in this he
makes the mistake of his life. Edu
cation is a necessary thing for every
human being. In fac-. man to attain
:he highest state in this life is com
pelled to have an education. But
mark you he is not c.-mpelled to have
a college diploma. Some of the most
highly educated people in this coun
try are no- college graduates. They
hold diplomas from the college of
experience. The college graduate
should . recognize that his diploma
means that .he has been prepared to
learn. His mind has been trained to
think. and it has been the idea of
those who have had him in charge
through the different stages of his
education to prepare him to use his
own mind and to think out proposi
tions for himself. A diploma, there
fore, means that a man has been pre
pared to do his own thinking, to
learn from the experience of others
that which will be useful to him in
his daily life. He will be able to
commune with the great men of the
world in all ages. An education
wh.:! does not train a boy to do his
own thinking and to apply what he
has learned is a failure. Often in life
we have seen people holding degrees
from some of the best universities in
the land who were wholly impracti
cable. In the race of life they were
swiftly passed by men who never saw
the inside of a college. So often has
this been the case that men who have
risen by their own exertions, with
only the help of a limited education,
have been constrained to look on all
college training with contempt. This
is an erroneous basis from which to
reason. To where there is one man
who has risen to eminence, on an
education given himself, there have
been ten who starting under the same
conditions have fallen back utter and
ignoble failures. An education is
only valuable as it is applied by the
one who receives it. If it makes a
man an impracticable dreamer, unable
to cope with the stern realities of
life, then -manifestly it has done him
no good; but in judging whether a
higher education has been wasted on
an individual i*t is absolutely essen
tial to know the individual. It is pos
sible that he would have been what he
is whether or not he had received the
training of an institution of higher
The world today is hunting for men
who know how to apply their knowl
edge. Applied knowledge brings a
high price in the market, hence we
see the drift towards a mixed edu
cation, part literary and part indus
trial. wvhich is coming more and more
into favor. An education that d.s
not teach a man the lesson of self
reliance and of competency is an ed
ucation that has fallen short of its
high aims. Of course a boy who
receives his diploma thinks that he is
going to do great things when he gets
out in the world, hugging the de
lusion to his soul that the diploma in
itself imparts to him certain qualifi
cations, of which in reality he may be
lacking. Education :has been the
Achimedian lever which has raised
the world to its present level, but all
this education has not been secured
within the walls of a college. Many
whose educational opportunities, as
we consider them, have been limited,
are more truly educated than those
who have been through some cele
brated college. After all, it is a
question of the individual.

Catching Wild Horses.
Country Life in America.
The bronco is born for the saddle,
but is given to resisting his fate, and
endeavors to make reciprocal the un
pleasantness with which human
beings are associated in his mind.
Indians first captured him by the
simple process of walking him down
through days and nights of wild
dashes and shor: rests, of interrdpted
meals, thirst and anxiety, to final
exhaustion. The white man's system
of catching wil'd horses is essentially
the same. Two or more men with
supplies and swift horses work to
gether. When a herd is sighted one
man follows it for all he is worth,
while the others make camp. When
the horse of the first man is exhaust
ed he returns and another takes his
place. The herd, kept on the jump
with littl'e chance to eat, soon be
comes tired out and is then easily
drivcn to the corral. This method is
practicable because the herd while
fleeing returns to the same genera!

Dear General: We have arranged
conveyances for such of the Confed
rates as may not feel able to walk
during the parade of the Confederate
Veerans at the Reunion on the 16th
of June. I will be glad if you will an
nounce this by appropriate order, and
give me such information as to thehi
number as you can. We will provide
nice conveyances for them and the
persons of each state will ride with
the division of that state. I have had
some suggestions that some would
like this thing to be done. I, there
fore, write to ask that you make it
public. I am authorized by the Reun- p
ion Committee to say that ample pro
Gio will be made for all Confeder
ates who prefer to ride in conveyanc
