In answer to several inquiries I will
say, yes we are collecting from all mem
bers the full amount of their contract
whether they had a loss or not
Some of those who have losses clain
this uwlcss. 1 will give an instance in
which it would work detrimental to
other members who have sustained loss
es. Cut first you must understand that
If every cent is collected it will only
pay about 70 per cenf, of the losses.
Now suppose A owes the company
$10.00 for insurance, and has a loss of
$10.00. If he should balance his aoct
he would get 100 per cent or $10.00 in
stead of $7.00 and thus other losers
would get $3.00 less.
Again suppose B owes $20 and has
100 of a loss, if he would nay his $20
(he would have a right to expect every
other member to do the fame thing and
he will eret about $70.
Once more suppsse C owes $20 and has
a claim for a loss or 9V), tie nice a gw
the 100 per cent instead of St. 00.
And these instance could be carried
on and on, but I think these are enough
, to show every man that owing to the
fact that the tensents is not enough to
.pay all the losses in full It is necessary
that every loser as well as every other
member premptly pay his ten cents in
full, in order that we may ""make final
settlement by the middle of the month
but of course if membars have to write
two or three letters and our time is used
up in answering individual letters we
cannot make settlement so soon. There
fore send in your money and watch this
column for news of all kinds of insur
ance. In our list of losses wo named two
men twice by mistake, but no man will
be paid twice.
On the 25th of last month we had
made final settlement with one hundred
and eighty-four members and commeno
ed to send out our assessments to the
members. Since which time I have
received several new claims for losses.
I do not see how any one could expect
to be excused from paying his assess
ment on such ground. When we make
the final settlement we will have to
send a statement to every member giv
ing the names of all who do not pay,
or we will be accused of keeping that
part that each ;loser gets less than 70
per cent of hi claim, and all should be
willing to have the blame rest where It
Illinois had a severe cyclone lately
but that doos not prove that Nebraska
will not be the next to sustain a loss.
We think that every man who has any
property and buildings especially
should have it insured. We hope that
our agents will write enough this month
to make our report come up to one
dearth million dollars a little from each
one will do that

I wish each fire company would send
me amswers to the following questions:
Date of organization. Amount of loss
es paid. Amount at risk at this date.
Number of assessments. Amount of

On December the 4th the Lancaster
county company completed its first year
(with one loss of $110. One assessment

Thar Ar Three Kinds, Bat Only 0
That I Considered tb True Gen.
Thore are three kinds of rubies
the oriental ruby, the spinel ruby and
the balas ruby, says the Jeweler's Re
view. The first is the only true one.
The latter differ considerably in com
position from tfta first The true is
composed almost exclusively of al
umina. Jn the latter are only seven
tenthsof alumina the remainder being
chiefly magnesia Their color, more
over, is due partially to the oxide of
chromium, a substance of whicn the
genuine ruby has not a trace.
In commerce the balas ruby has
much inferior value to the spineL
This is generally of a vivid popy rod
color; the balas is of a violet rose,
although Pegu has furnished white
and white violet spinels, and Suder
matia even bluish gray ones, it can
be seen at on 'e. therefore, how ex
tremely erroneous would be a classiS
cation of gems by color or general
appearance alone. The primitive
form of the spinel ruby is like that of
the diamond eight-sided, which dis
tinguishes it at once from the oriental
The color of the genuine ruby is
that oi nrterial blood, or pigeon's
blood, as it is called. It is extreme
ly bard, and after the sapphire is the
hardest of the corundum which ren
ders it difficult to understand why the
earth so rarely gives it up. Its tint
is as beautiful by artificial light as by
day. and it powers of reflection so
great that ancient belief credited it
with the power of emitting light
The ancients even supposed tbat It
would shine through clothing with
The ) gest ruby known is one
menti' . by Chardin as having baen
engravod with the- name of Sheik
fc'ephy. Another noble ruby is in pos
session of the shah of Persia Its
weight is put at 175 karats. A third
belonging to the king ef Una pur. was
cut into a heiuispheric.il form, and Id
1653 was boue-ht for 13. 8fi6. A ruby
possessed by Gustavus Adolphoa and
presented-! the c arina at the time of
his journey to St. Petersburg, was the
size of a small ben's egg.

M M, Duccomo andl TomnaaM have
studied tbe action of Anagallia arven
eSy which they find, possesses the
property of destroying vapidly and
withoat pain fleshy growths and even
horny wart. . They assumed tbat the
plant contained a ferment, analogous
in ite action, to pepsin and punicreatin,
and' instituted some experiments
to decide tbe point. Some fresh
mat amdi fibrin were' placed in
contact with a small quantity of
the-fresh plant reduced to-powder, and,
afrer beiag maintained at a temperature-of
40 degrees C. for four to five
hour's, they were found to-be consider
ably softened, being dissociated almost
completely in about thirty-six hours,
during which the temperature did not
exceed 4.V degrees. The presence of a
ferment was thus regarded as estab
lished), and the authors ae stated to
have- succeeded in isolating it under
the form, off a white amorphous sub
stance;, easily solnable in water. It is
saidi to- hare- no action upen starch,
and fitrther details as to possible prac
tical applications of the ferment are
promised upon, the completion of con
