"THE WISEST INVESTMENT'
Another Endorseiient for Pacific Mutual's Liberal Treat.
meat of Policy Holders.
The. following letter speaks volumes. For years Mr. G.
Wiley Weils. now of Santa Monica, was one of the most promi
nent and favorably known - lawyers in Los Angeles. His
sound advico to insure NOW is timely and worthy of the care
ful consideration of all who read his letter.
Santa Monica, Cal., June 19, 1906.
PACIFIC MUTUAL LIFE INSURANCE CO.,
Los Angeles, Cal.
I am in receipt of your letter containing check for two thou
sand and twenty-five dollars ($2025,) in payment of dividend
declared upon my twenty payrnent life policy No. 14519 which
matured a few days ago. You are indeed to be congratulated
upon your prompt and very satisfactory settlement.
. I fully appreciate the varied liberal options offered me as fol
First.-Total cash surrender value (Reserve $3125, Dividend
(Being $647 more than paid in premfums, besides twenty
years of insurance free, which upon a non-participating basis
would have cost $2589.)
Second.-Insurance Fully Paid for Life $5,000 and a cash
dividend of $2025.
(Being 45 per cent. of the total premiums paid.)
Third.-Jnsurance Fully Paid for Life $7940.
Fourth.-Cash aunual income for life $6 10. 15. Being 13.5
per cent. of premiums paid besides twenty years insurance
free, valued at $2589.)
For a number of. years my experience with certain insurance
companies was very unsatisfactory. It was therefore with re
luctance and much misgiving that I allowed your representa
tive to persuade me to apply for insurance in the Pacific
Mutual. I am convinced now, however, that it was the wisest in
vestment I could have made at that time. What was true twenty
years ago, I believe to be just as true today. My advice, Dased
upon actual experience, especially to young men, is, insure
NOW. You have kept faith with your patrons in a generous
manner and your honest administration of a sacred trust is
IWith a feeling of satisfaction and gratitude I beg to remain
with wishes for continued prosperity for the grand old Pacific
Yours very truly,

How Major Barlow and 0ol. Fraim
Became Fast Friends.
The Glascow - Senatorial district
now represented by Senator lo P
Gillenwaters, has been the scene oJ
many political battles," said a f9rme1
resident of that section. "and re
members once when Major Rarlow
who represented the district severa
times was prosecuting an active can,
vass that trouble in plenty was fur
nished the speakers . It was som<
time after the close of the war, and
race prejudice ran high. In Monroe
one of the counties situated on ti
border, where the ravages of war had
been most pronounced, lived Col. J
M. Fraim, a financier of whom it ha
been said that he woilld speculate oi
anything from a hen and chiekenm
to half a county in Kansas, and dir
ing the major's canvass in Monroe l
malde sone statements to which Col.
Fraim took exceptions. During th(
speech of the major Col. Fraim .dis
puted his utterance, but the mattet
was dropped and on the following day
the speaking was to be held at. what
is now the village of Flippin, neat
the splendid estate of Col. Fraim.
'Before reachiiing the appointment
Major Barlow then resumed hif
trouble, stopped at a country stor
and purclased a liug butcher knife
but immediately altered his mind al
fequested the merchant, who knen
nothing of his intentions, to exenst

Fraim suggested that lie was satisfied
Major Barlow then resumed his

ger. He met him at the r'acecourse
where the Englishman was wiith semc
friends. Thiev italed, iabtth 'ace..
and the Frenchman gave the party a
tip, and offered to put their money or
a for them.
"We shall never see our 5 again,
said one 'of the party, who did not
trust the stranger. But when the race
had been won 1h0 appeared with their
winnings and distributed them. Just
before the Grand Prix he asked hi
hotel acquaintance to baek the Eng.
lish horse, for him.
''I only want to put on a hnudred
franes,'' lie said; But he could find
nothing smaller than a thousand
frane note. ''It is a nuisance,' said
he, ''I want to go back to Paris with
out waiting for tl e race. And after
all I don 't know you, do I, to the
tune of 40?''
The Englishman laughed, and gave
him 900 fanes change. They never
saw him again, and both the thousand
franc, note and the smaller notes in
which lie had paid them their former
winnings proved to be sham ones.
But the cleverest switndle of all of
which I have heard this seasoa was
worked by an Englishman. A well
known theatrical manager of my ac
quaintance, on a visit to Paris, was
astonished to see a man whom lie
knew well by sight and recognized as
a ienber of the 'swell mob'' taking
to a lady and her daughter, people in
society. He took an early opportunity
of warning them against the man, but
''Captain Thompson,'' they said
(this was the name adopted by the
swindler) ''is a mai of means. We
have known him for some time. He
occupies one of the best suites in the
hotel, and far from getting money
from us, lie has brought us money.
Little by little the theatrical manager
discovered what 'Captain Thoilp
son' ' Was doing.
He had mnade the ladies' acquaint
anee, and had actually proposed tc
the you'nger one. Every now and then
on his retturn froi the races, hi
brought them Small sums of money,
which he ''had taken the liberty of
winning for them.'' He recouped
himself by gambling with the ladies
friends, and in the course of a few
weeks lie had made several thousani
pounds out of two or three young mel
who, having been introduced to hin
by ladies whom they knew well, had
no suspicion that they were in the
hands of a sharper.
