The oldest policy on the books of the Australian Mutual Provident Society has just become a -'claim. The policy, which was the ; fourth issued by .the.'Society, -is dated 28fli Fsbruary, 1849, and is for £250. The bonus additions, including that for the year 1886, estimated, amount to £570, tho total claim being £820. The- annual premium was £6 18s 4d, and was paid f0r.38 years, making a total paid of £262 16s Bd. j The result is thai/ the member has had an investment yielding him about 5 J per cent, over the whole 38 years, while the assurance, ranging from £250 to £S2O, has been carried meanwhile for nothing. Mr Laurence Hayes, who died somewhat suddenly ab his residence, No. 1, Hamilton West, Waikato, on Saturday last, \ 16th April, was employed a? painter by, the Railway Department.

Searancke, Esq., Coroner, certified that death resulted from apoplexy. He was formerly member of No. 38. and recently of No. 4, L.O.L. The deceased, who ,ljas. been inthe colony about six years, and was from Bolton, England, where he was much respected, leaves a wife and seven young children quite unprovided for.

The business has been lately purchased by Mr John Scott, who is now holding acleai- ,- ance sale. The goods seem to be marked very cheap, and from the numerous purchasers about, we believe the public fully appreciate the bargains. .This is an opportuniy f for tbo.J public and large;buyers to purchase heavy winter goods at nominal prices.
