on well-defined economic principles, il
ls incorporated under the laws of our
jtato and covers tho wholo state. VVo
now have ab nit $230,000 worth of prop
erty insured and are desirous to havo
one or more in every county to act as
our agents, but right hero allow me
to say that our agents aro allowed but
one dollar for each applieition.hence no
one will get rich.
Fire and Ligtning!
There aro about twenty-live local flro
companies now incorporated in the

insitutod to cover tho state. Let us
hear from you on this line.

locate all mutual firo companies in the
