Dreadful Cry of "FIRE"
Last year, in the United States, fire destroyed
$325,000,000 worth of property.
This appalling loss means an average of 900.000
for every day in the year.
Are you protected? Are you doing your part to-'
ward protecting your home?
How about your fire insurance? Have your poli
cies been adjusted in accordance with enhanced proper
ty values? If fire destroyed your store, or your home,
tonight, would your loss be fully covered?
Not what your property cost, but what it
can be replaced for, should determine the a
mounl of your insurance:
