The principal business of Our Country today is WAR. We see it and its fruits in
every movement of the HOUR. We are Buying Bonds and Stamps to maintain OUR
LIBERTY. Wc are conserving foods and materials in order to give Our Soldiers and
Allies their proper needs. THE WHEATLESS DAYS MEAN A SHORTAGE OF BREAD
STUFF. The 1918 Crops'of this section look promising and they must be protected by
you and conserved through the war measures of our Government. The prices are high,
the demand is great. Your Government insists that every one must produce and conserve
to the limit. This means .more acres farmed, mofe cattle, hogs, sheep and more money
borrowed with which to operate. Therefore, your stock and crops must be protected
against loss. We are ready and willing to assist you in every way possible with ADVICE,
INSTRUCTION and give any aid that WE CAN RENDER. Those LIVE STOCK, AUTO
MOBILES and BUILDINGS should be PROTECTED AGAINST THAT uncontrolable pest,
known as HAIL. We are writing Hail Policies now that are effective after May 15th,
which covers you for the 1918 Hail Season.
. Should you insure now and report to us on or before May 15th that your crop is
winter killed or gone, your policy is. cancelled without any cost to youi The following
rates are quoted by us which apply for 1918 season in this county:
.WHEAT. CORN. OATS. SPELTZ. - 101 Per Cent.

12' Per Cent. Limit Per
13 Per Cent. Acre $30.00
151 Per Cent.
Limit per Section 2,500.00 by any one company. The above rates are based on a
limit of $10.00 per acre for small grain but we can cover you for any amount you desire
in one or more companies. OUR TERMS ARE CASH or NOTE DUE IN FALL, NOTE
RATES SAME AS CASH RATE.
