The list of delegates appointed by Mr. Montgomery to the Ruston Convention appears in this issue of the TIMES. The list is objection able in several respects. The gen tlemen, personally, are unobjec tionable, but they are, with one or two exceptions inexperienced in convention matters. Such men as Mr. Eb. Smith and Mr. Win. Mc Dowell would add strength to the delegation. Maj Waddill being up North, of course cannot be at the conlvention. Unless the delegates were notified of their appointments anterior to the promulgation of the list, (late Thursday afternoon,) some of them will not know it in time, if the mails are used to notify them, for the mail to 'Omega goes out Tuesdays and Thursdays. King should have had at least seven of the ten delegates, and no Lott or Wells man should have a place on the delegation, The mass meeting wanted King and failing him, Murdoch, any other repre sentation on the delegation, is contrary to the expressed will of the people. LIFE INSURANCE. That no man with a family should be without insurance on his life is a a self evident proposition. It is also equally clear that every man contemplating matrimony, should insure his life. As the cost of life insurance is greater as a man gets older, it is of benefit to take out a policy as soon as possible. In the past, insurance has been ex pensive, but new plans are contiln ually being introduced, an d cheaper rates made until now, the burden is very light, and within the reach of all. Among the cheap plans are the secret societies, of which the Knights of Pythias and the Knights of Honor, are the most conspicuous. The attractive fea tures of these orders are the low rates of insurance, but they could establish even lower rates, were it not for the expensive machinery required to run the orders. It has been a theory of life in surance that "a proper reserve af fords a guaranty for the ultimate payment of every dollar of risk assumed." This theory, if good, would result in success to all hon estly conducted life insurance com panies, but, life insurance com panies do fail, many have failed in the last few years, and they will continue to fail. To keep a life in surance company going,the member ship must be kept up, and immense sums have been spent and are now being spent to keep up the mem bership. Many people object to secret orders, but yet want life in surance. The ordinary plan of life insurance is too expensive. In order to place life insurance in reach of all, there has been or ganised in New York (and the New York laws regarding insurance are very strict) a company with little or no machinery, and which is thus enabled'to furnish the low est possible insurance, accompan led by absolute security. This is the Security Mutual Benefit So ciety organized in 1881, whose ad vertisement may be found in this issue of the TIMES. The plan of the company and rates of insurance can be obtained at this office, and all in want of insurance would do well to call here and get full infor mation. As a matter of compari son of cost, the following figures, showing cost of each $1.000 of in surance including annual dues for the year 1885, are given: Masonic Mutual Benefit Society $22.00. Knights of Pythias, $19.73. Knights of Honor, $16 50. Security Mutual Benefit Society,, $11.60. Think this matter over, and then come and take a few thousand in the Security. Thos. F. Plunkett, president of the Hartford Silk Co., and treasu rer of the Union Gingham Manu facturing Co., is a defaulter to the extent of a quarter of a million dollars. "A young lady mn Pike county, who was watching a binditg har vester at work fell upon the table and was carried up with the grain. As the girl was of about the size of a bundle the machine did not rec ognize the difference, and so she came through with a neat little string around her waist. One of the harvest hands caught her is the machine 'kicked' her out, and set her on the ground right side up, when it was found that she had been more frightened than hart." -JeMu ialbta, in Indianspolis J*3 -ttI A roICAl.
