COL JAMS. W. NICIOLSON DEAD.
it The announcement of the death of
no man in LouisIana could have
'* brought genuine sorrow to as many
Y Louisianians as did the sad news of
the death of Col. Jas. W. Nicholson,
V or "Old Nick," as he was affectionate
', ly called by thousands who have re
P ceived instruction from hilm during
the past half century. Nor will the
tidings of his death sadden the heartb
of Louisiana boys alone, but in every
I State of the Union, in fact in every
civilized country in the world, are
hundreds df young m'en who attended
the Louisiana State University & A.
I & M. College at Baton Rouge, and
who knew and loved "Old Nick," and
who will bow their heads in grief at
news of his death.
Col. Nicholson was born in Clai
Iborne parish, Louisiana, and when but
a boy joined the Confederate Army, ir
which he served for three years.
After the war he taught school in
Claiborne parish and was afterwards
elected to the chair of mathematics of
the State University, whwlh position
he held at the time of hip death. Col.
Nicholson was one of the most distin
guished mathematicians in the United
States and was the author of a series
of mathematical works, which will be
a lasting monument to his memory.
As an educator, mathematician and
author of great note he has builded
a lasting monument to his memory,
but the monument of greatest beauty
which he constructed during a life
'time of usefulness was the monument
of love and affection which he builded
in the hearts of thousands of boys and
men who were associated with him as
students and professor doring his fifty
years of service in that capacity.
To his sorrowing family the Gazette
and the people of Louisiana extend
sympathy and condolence, while we
commend his soul to the Divine Cre

SFlatterlng showlnd In annual statement
A I HEN the Mutual Life Insurance Company of New
York issued its first policies in 1843, no other
existing life insurance company in this country
had yet begun the issue of legal reserve policies. It is,
therefore, the oldest life insurance company in America.
The company's'achievements, past and present, in
the matter of benefits to policy holders, have long at
tracted public attention. In 1916 it paid policy hold
ers a total of $68,654,843.80-a sum exceeding the
amount received directly from policy holders through
premiums by $i6,748,758.97. Such results are of
course possible by reason of the company's invest
ments, the total interest from this souroe in 1916 hav
ing been $29,076,952.44.
The balance sheet for 1916 shows a contingency re
serve of $16,252,739.77.
This was .an increase over 1915 of $1,627,160.51,
while in that year also there had been an increase in
this item of $1,977,963.97, making total increase in
the two years of $3,605,124.58.
The new insurance paid for in 1915, including divi
(lend of 84,766,295, additions was $175,377 932. Pol
icies already in force were increased during the year by
ti;,321,132, and policies previously terminated were
revived to the amount of $2,518,949. This makes the
total of new insurance placed upon the books during
the year $184,218,013.
The cash on hand at the close of the year was but
$4,383,965.63 as it is the company's, purpose to keep
its funds closely invested. This balance represents an
amount considerably less than three weeks' income.
