The farming public will be gratified
to know that the Continental Insur
ance Company of Now York, has em
barked in the Insurance of growing
crops against loss or damage from
hail, f he Continental does the largest
farm Insurance business in America.
Its popularity is the reHult of years of
honorable treatment of its patrons. Its
past record is the best evidence of its
future course. With nearly Five Mill
ion dollars of gross assets the indem
nity offered is unquestionable. The
loss to fanners in the west Inst year
by hail was enormous, the danger this
year from the same cause is imminent
A word to the wise is sufficient.
Delays are dangerous. Insure at once
against Hail in this old and reliable
Company. For particulars call at Tub
