Our cyclone company U a certainty. I
presume that by May 1 (or 13 ut the fur
thest we will commence to forae pollciee
joaciox from the amouut of applications
arat in daring the past tw day's' and the
many promiM-s of more by twren.1 wbe
are interest; d in the welfare of the com
But do not let thl fact deter you from
writing to the edIt'4fVt the Insurance de
partment for "plication and Instruc
ttopsto vourself. Name your
county a-vT, ' have ovr
n.. h.v iimi insurance i run
comoanv for the last five years
will now loan the tame
yonr neighbor at 10 per cent per annum,
the interest will more than ray for your
Insurance, and at the end of five year, you
will have the principal left.
We draw our conclusions from the
precedent we have In tbo loa Tornado
Awociation, which was organized in Jan-
-ith membership fee ol
SiOO. aurvey fee $1.00 and 10c per 100 00
insurance, 300 for the first
tt 000. alnce which time there have been
fc.it' to assessments of fifty cents per
it .hix1 of five years members paid
. fee of ti.00. and the 10c
w ainnoo. omittlnir the membership
iL. f &i (in iim total costfor over the
rht vears insurance Is $0 00 per $1,000
ssm-ntii ner annum or $3 73 for five
vears Insurance. The company has over
43,000 on hand to pay losses.
ite let us look at the stock company'
rate at lowest cssh rate which is one per
cent or $10.00 per $1,000 Insurance.
Allowing ten per cent the Interest would
bel.OUperyear, to,al C08t ,0 Pollcy
holders of $15.00 against $3.75 In the
mutual company, a difference of $.11.25.
But if you call the $10.00 worth seven
and one half ir cent per annum the In
terest alone will pay all dues to a purely
mutual insurance company while the
principal will be gone to a corporate loan
lathe above I have tnken the lowest
rate, but most of the farmers Insure on
time and pay at the end of the first year.
Let us look at that rate which has been
two per cent, $30.00 per thousand (until
the mutual insurance law was passed
last winter) allowing seven and one half
per cent for the four years after pnyment
the total cost would be $26.00, while the
total cost in a purely mutual with interest
on fees paid would not exceed $3.00.
And yet we have some farmers who
would rather pay the twj per ceiit to a
Block co-npany than join a company of
farmers, clitiming that by so doing they
know that they will not have to pay any
more money, wuue in a mutual compauy
no one can tell how much the members
will be called upon to pay during the five
years, which is true, but let us look nt
MHBftofthe expense lu our Mutual
Cyclone company the agrut g's $1.00
and the secritury gets 60 cents for each
application received and twenty,
cents per hour fordoing the office work
In the stock company the agent gets one
fourth the amount of the note he takes or
when he gets a farmer's note for $20.00
be has done a good days worK, but when
he gets $40.00 or $00 00 worth of notes he
has made more than a mutual Insurance
agent can make In a week's good work,
and further we find a president vice-president,
secretary and treasurer all on a
good salary, while the board of directors
come In for a grod per diem for a week
or two eveiy couple of months during the
year, to say nothing of the dividends, fine
offices and many other lines of expense
that are of no possible use to a farmer's
company, la fact the whole working ft
stock company is sgainst the interest'of
the farmer for these reasons.
A suck company Is organized In order
that It Incorporators may have employ
ment at rood r exorbitant wages and fur
ther that their money may make them a
filitoe the losses lor a series of years
tan b mathematically demonstrated to
he about a certain percentage of the
' whale amount of property to be Insured
a rate can be established by which all of
the above items Including dividend, and
interest and that rate is always high
enough as yon can see when you contem
niate that last year there was one
hundred and twelve stock companies
doing business in this state.
These one hundred and twelve compa
nies wrote Insuraucelnst year to the amouut
of $13107,787, receiving therefor $1,843,
531, paid tor losses $383,438, and
leaving in the hands of these
han companies $000,093. The above
refers to Insurance of all kinds In the
state except the farm mutuals
But If we lake the companies that do
most of insurance on farm property as Is
thicase of the three state companies
which last year insured $24,4U4,lt)U. re
ceived premiums therefor $423,729 aud
nald for losses $153,220, leaving a bai
CBC of $285,500 for the three companies,
rls farmers and Merchant's Home Fire
and Omaha Firo.lee auditor's report for
In the case of the one hundred and
twelve companies, which Ircludes the In
surance of city and town property, plat e
glass, steam boilers, security, etc-, the
amount paid for losses was about 48 per
cent of the premiums received and the
three state companies paid about "30 per
cent of the premiums received.
Now on the other hand mutual com
panies are organized for the purpose of
insuring its members at cost, therefore it
is an object for each one interested In the
welfare of the company to see to it that
all expenses are kept down.
Hence the difference of cost. Another
difference Is that In a stock company the
cost of managing Is not borne by those
wh manage, while in a mutual company
each member pays his pro rata share. In
the latter he is a member and has a vote
whether be will have an honest farmer to
handle his money, but in the stock com
pany the policy holders have nothing to
If the incorporators are a set of light
ning rod peddlers and they elect a horse
thief for secretary and treasurer, all the
policy holder has to do is to pay his
moaey and trust to Providence, (or

The 'Eye and Ear
Are two most delicate and complicat
ed organs; without the eye we could
not guide our footsteps nor observe
tho beauties of nature; without the ear
we could not hear the voices of our
friends nor enjoy the sweet sounds of
music. No one is so helpless as the
biiud aud liiore deserving of pity than
the deaf. Many persons lose sight or
hearing by neglect, which timeiy aid
might prevent. Among the specialists
who treut these organs uono have been
more successful than Dr. Donnls whoso
cfliceis Is over the First National Bank
Lincoln. Mr. C. M. Marshall who has
been in the employ of the big furniture
dealers, Gruetter & Co. was deaf in one
ear from which was a constant offensive
discharge for twenty-five years. The
Dr. cured it entirely in one month. Mr.
