Here's another. We put no useless

NOTICE TO POLICY HOLDERS
At a meeting of the Board of Di
rectors of the Platte Mutual Insur
ance company last evening, a new
business policy was adopted, where
by in the future the amount of any
one risk shall not exceed $1,500, and
in the business district not closer
than every other place of business.
Under those conditions it was con
sidered that Mutual insurance can
prosper and give good protection
without making assessments. The
Platte Mutual has been writing in
surance in this city for the past
twenty-five years and during all that
time had only one assessment, not
withstanding the rate for insurance
was about half that of the Old Line
companies, hence the patrons of the
local company have saved largely on
cost of their insurance.
It is a home company and all the
money paid for insurance is kept at
home and deserves the patronage of
everyone who is interested in seeing
the company prosper. Boost.
