EoiTOB iNSt RAKCK DEPARTMENT:
Dear Sir: Allow ma to congratulate
too on the growth of mutual Insurance In
Nebraska. The good effect of the work
it aoticable all over the state. In nearly
every county the farmers are bestirring
themselves and organizing so they can
Jtelp each ether In case of lost, and It
proves a great saving of money t tncm.
A few doeen farmers here in Richardson
county organized a company June, 1887.
.We nad Tery little law then but many of
us bad enjoyed the "mutual economy" in
the east and we felt that old line compan
ies were robbing at, so we went abxad on
our own orders. We found there was nt
a township in the county but what hud
paid more cash to Insurance companies
than all . the farmers tn the county bad
ever received back from them since its
settlement We call this an unequal show
not a fair shake. Our company now
has nearly 800 members among the sub
stantial people of the county. We have
issued 339 policies, aggregating nearly
$4,004,000. We are free from debt and
hare about $200 in the treasury; have
paid all losses promptly and have never
yet assessed our members. Our total
losses on all the risks to data has been
$43. The total of losse and expenses In
our county mutual fire and lightning
company to date, has cost a member $1.40
on a $1,000 policy. A $1,000 policy In a
stock cempany for that time costs $15 to
$20, and I have found esses where they
chsrged as high as $33, where they
found a farmer not pi led. If we had
not organised as we did the parties con
nected with our company would have
paid out about $5,000 more for insurance
since '87 than they did. When all the
farmers of the county are enrolled with
us our saving should be about $5,000 a
year. Now that we have a good mutual
' Insurance law, no county in the state is
excusable that does not organize a good
safe csreful company. Uur next great
need is to get the State Mutual Cyclone
Company in good running order, it was
organized by the mutual fire men from
different counties at Lincoln last August,
and will soon have $150,000 policies
issued. Storm Insurance like, tire Insur
ance in old Hda companies costs the
scattered and Isolated farmer more than
It Is worth. So on account of high
charges the majority of farmers do not
insure against storm. Yet every time a
severe storm rages we would feel better
if we had a policy on house and barn.
Now that we bave a mutual storm com
pany spread all over the state ready and
willing to give us insurance at actuitl
cost no farmer can give a valid excuse
for standing aside uninsured. The farm
ers of Iowa have made a splendid success
of a state storm company like this, as we
have often been told in your department.
No one can reasonably object to moderate
assessments one in a while if they know
their money goes direct to the sufferer.
It would be a person truly heartless that
would look upon sudden wreck and ruin
of his fellow man and then refuse to give
his mite to aid the sufferer. This is
exactly the mission of the ' State Cyclone
Company. , We have no dividends or
salaried officers to pay. Asldo from post
age, printed matter, and the petty fees
allowed the Secretary for clerical work,
all funds received are laid up to pay
losses. Farmers who have been paying
the high rates of the old line cyclone
companies cannot now give any good
reason for continuing to do so. Why
longer stick to a company that expects
you to pay all losses, then In addition, the
royal salaries, dividends and profits,
which are generally greater than the
losses? This mutual company offers you
a membership if you only agree to nay
your share of losses and the very smallest
possible expense. Profit and gain for no
one. Brother farmers, we ought to cut
loose and join the mutual at the first
opportunity. Each and every one of us
will have an equal say in the manage
ment and conduct of the mutual, so if at
any time anything don't suit we can move
an amendment. The mutual has no own-
- w v. rMn,Kiiuiucio w jUTCIU II. All IIIO
members at each annual meeting give the
directions and shape Its policy. It is
.humane, it Is fraternal.to stand by each
-other in bad luck. Those who never car
irled storm policies should so protect them
selves now and if they never meet a loss
it will be a happy thought that they sent
a little money to those who did suffer.
After 25 years experience in mutual in
surance I predict that assessments in this
storm company will never be high.

An Important Question.
"How am I to obtain better prices for
what I bave to sell" is often the query
of the farmer and tiller of the soil, and
it is indeed one of vast importance to
them. The question may be answered
in various ways by those who bave
give a the subject their attention. One
way of answering it, and it seems to us
the best way. would be to change the
mode of marketing what they have to
sell by shipping direct to the largor
markets where the best prices can be
obtained. Commission merchants who
receive and sell the greater portion of
farm produce in our large cities have
hitherto almost been unknown save to
the country merchants and others who
buy produce for shipment. To them he
has been an important factor ia receiv
ing and selling their smpmenu, ana
generally at profit to the shipper. If
the f.vrrnrs are to sve this profit they
must make use of the same means, by
making their -own shipments and no
longer be compelled to accept at home
what the buyers may offer them. "But"
inquires the farmer, ' How am I ti do
this, and who am I to ship to?" To
some good reliable commission mer
chant of course: for no doubt there are
reliable commission cicn engaged in
this business in our large cities, and
they should not only be selected for
their reliability but their attitude to
ward the farmer's trade should be
known. Hut few commission bouses
seek the farmer's trado for fear of dis
pleasing the country merchants, and
thereby injuring their trade from this
source. The house selected should be
one that solicits the farmer's trade
direct, and that receives and sells their
shipments upon the same terms and
conditions as it does from the merchant
and regular shippers.
To those who desire to make their
shipments direct to the Chicago market
we would reccommend the commission
house of Summers. Morrison & Co., 174
South Water St. Tbey make a speciali
ty of receiving shipments direct from
the farmers and producers and have a
very large trade from this source.
Their advertisoient will be found in
another column. Tbey handle every
thing you may have to ship and if you
will write them for prices or any infor
mation that you may desire in regard
to shipping they will be glad to
A Good Cheap Roof.
Black Seal prepared roofing is ac
knowledged by people who have used it
for years to be the best rooting of its
kind in the market. It is wind-proof,
as it withstands wind of the most disas
trous nature, is water-proof as water
caunot penetrate it, and practically fire
proof as falling sparks or brands of fire
will not ignite it. The Black Seal roof
ing is adapted for flat or steep surfaces,
and any inexperienced person can lay
from six to eight sqs. per day. It is
made for alt climates, and has been in
use from eight to ten years, which
proves that its durable qualities are un
excelled. This rooting is much cheaper
than Iron, tin, metal, or shingles, and if
put on according to directions will give
entire satisfaction in every respect. It
is manufactured aud sold by the W. h.
Campe Rooting and Manufacturing Co.,
Kansas City, Mo., who will bo pleased

In our advertisement of the Crete
nurseries last montn we made a mis
statement that should have been cor
rected. In giving the apple crop far
1891 we should have said 13,000 bushels
not 1,300. Mr. Stephens reports a grat
ifying incroase in sales of all kinds of
nursery stock over previous years with
all stock in tho best condition. Nebras
ka orchardists are demonstrating that
fruit can be raised here and every farm
er should pay more attention to this
division of agriculture.
Topoka Tribune: A well known Ko-
publicnn politician estimates that if a
nonpartisan vote on the silver quos-
tion were taken in Kansas, with no
candidates and no other issues in the
Hold, the voto would bo five to ono in
favor of free silver. This is a very
fair estimate, and yet tho:-e are lots of
editors foolish enough to lot tho New
lork tail wag tho Western dog.
These liepubliean editors of Kansas
occupy a position similar to that of
tho Northern rebel in war times.
Cincinnati Herald Don't you dare
say that the organized farmers and
laborers of the country aro revolu
tionary and anarchistic. Organized
industry is trying to rijjht groat
wrongs rationally and constitutionally.
Organized capital with tho helrj of
unorganised labor is trying to per
petuate tho wrongs. If tho rich had
to bear for three months what mult'
tudes of poor aro bearing they would
precipitate a bloody revolution.
Alliance Herald: Everything is
low but interest. Within the past two
years that has increased one hundred
per cent Two years ago, it required
n pound aud a half of cotton to pay
for the use of a dollar a year. Now,
it requires three pound. That is the
result of a pernicious financial system.
Reform the system so that it "would
assure 'oqual rights to all, and spocial
favors to none." ami tho righteous
rule would soon enforce justice to all,
which would assure profits to labor
and prosperity to tho whole country.

papors arranged for a groat division

Now that the great convention has
met and organized a party ou a plat
form that will have the support of
abodt two-thirds of the voters of the
country, they announce that they will
have to submit with patience ton kind
of temporary craze that has seized a
few fanatics but can have no perma
nent effect upon the politics of the
country. Every one of the former
predictions has failed, and the pro
phets of evil would revise their judg
ment of affairs if they were not
blinded by prejudice and interest.

How many a rustic maiden's heart

tended to toll her fortune, especially
the future of her heart history, from
the cords she laid on the green turf! In

the veil that hides the future and to

love idealizes its object, and
no pencil is deemed true and fair that

Don't Feed Hene and Chick To
gether. It is a mistake to feed the hens a 1
growing chicks together, as the result
will be that the hens receive too much
and the chicks oo little food. Atrthis
season one good meal a day is all that
adult fowls should have, as too much
grain causes them to become too fat.
Chicks, on the contrary, nntil three
or four months old, should have two
meals daily. If all the fowls aro fed
together, the proper apportionment
of the food cannot be -ibserved. If
the food m ot given wit judgment,
the result is a waste and an increase
of the cost.

Steel Harvesters and Mowers.
When 1). M. Osborne built the first all steel Harvester and Binder in 1885 it
marked a new d-parture that left all our competitors far in the rear. They have
all compliment? ' as by imitation.
The New Osborne placed upon the market this year is ilso a long stride In
advance that places ns at the head and proclaims ns the leaders in all that per
tains to cutting and binding grain.
THE NEW OSBORNE
Lightest Strongest and Simplest Machine Made.
BECAUSE its frame is all made of angle steel and put together with steel
bolts. No round or square Iron pipe about it.
BECAUSE it has tbe steepest deck, thus insuring a quick delivery to the
packers, and avoiding all trouble from packing and choking.
BECAUSE it has the widest drive wheel, being over 10 inches on the face,
thus avoiding all danger of sliding in dry or sinking in wet v; eat her.
BECAUSE you don't have to elevate the grain so high.
BECAUSE all its parts are steel and malleable iron, thus insuring four times
the strength at half the weight of cast iron.
BECAUSE its chain drive, front cut and straight pitman apply their power
direct. No lost motion-
BECAUSE, it is the easiest adjusted, easiest bandied, and best built machine
on earth. Don't buy a machine until you have seen the New Osborne. Two
horses can handle it. Its use on a farm is proof of an intelligent farmer.

The Number Four Mowers; 4, S and 6 feet cut stands at the head of the list.
Ask any one of its hundred thousand users and the same reply will be made. "It

the best is none too good for you.
