THE simplicity and practicability of this new
Plow commends it favorably to the special
notice of every farmer. 1 1 possesses a decided
superiority over all other plows now in use. Tho
wnec.s are tour toot in diameter, and run on tne
unplowcd land. Its entire construction is in no
way complicated. The plow is managed in every
manner witn ease, and requires only two levers
to be used iu making any alteration. Thc supe
riority of the "Gay" Plow will bo clearly shown
by tho following certificate :
We, the undersigned, citizens of Linn county,
Oregon, having purchased aud used upon our
farms tho "Gay" Plow, hereby certify that the
same bus given us entire satisfaction. Its facility
tor adjurttug to suit the depth ot furrow wituout
moving from the scat, is simple and easy. We
like the plow for its draught, because tho same is
brought to bear directly upon the plow-beam in
stead of the carriage ; also, because it is strong
and durable, all except tno wood-work Deing con-,
structcd of wrought iron no castings are used.
Tne wheels running upon the solid land is an ad
vantage over other gang-plows, in strikinir off
land and in plowing, not ha ving to make the nec
essary changes in tho machinery, and the scat is
always level, not thr wing the driver forward or
sideways as in other plows. Better work and
more of it can be accomplished by tho use of this
Plow than by hand.
We take pleasure in recommending the "Gay"
Plow to our brother farmers, as - one having no
superior in Oregon.

ITS POLICIES ARE NEGOTIABLE.
Bv the Charter of tbo Company, certificates of
obligations will be issued, agreeing to purcnase
its policies at their value which, when accompa
nied by the policy duly assigned or iransierroa,
are negotiable, and may be used as collateral ie
cur.ty, in making loans from the Company or
from other parties.
The Hon. Jno. E. Sanford, Insurance Commis
sioner of Massachusetts, in his Report for 1H68,
speaking of Dividends in Life Insurance Compa
nies, says . " The sooner such guarantees cease
to be made, and such expectations created, the
sooner Life Insurance will come to rest on its true
motive, and men insure their lives for security.
and not for dividends. The best and the most
nonular companies will then he those that prom
ise only equity, and render all that they promise,
and furnish the best security, witn tne most up
right and judicious management.
" By the Stock plan the full cash effect of the
premium is immediately secured to the insured,
the Company taking all the risk. By the Mu
tual plan, the full valne in insurance of the pre
mium paid, is not secured to the policy-holder.
who takes a portion of the risk himself.
