IT. J. T. M. 8WI0AHT. EDITOR. Tkl ItPMrtneot will be dtt4 for to. ben- V of Mutukl ImurmoM CompaoK through- ut um mate. on time RIDOUIlt to Cyclone- 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 pany. 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 company. 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 good interest. 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 1891.) 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 say. 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 otherwise.) Hail. If yoo want to Insure against hall read the Farmers' Alliance of March 81st and tell us how many acres you want to Insure anp are willing to give 50 cents In cash and a Dote for 10 cents per acre, payable ft ov. 1st. Next week in this department the sub' ject of hail Insurance will be given in de tail. Be sure and read it ana tell your neighbor. Ask him for fifty cents for The Alliance until Nov. 1st I will try to give him tbo value ef his money in this department aione. ' Cheap Landf.

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.

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.
