The excellent record of the' 'Mer
cantile' 'is attracting much attent
ion. It now has in Nebraska over
seven thousand policy holders and
over six million dollars of insur-
ence in force. It has annually for
five years on an average declared
to its policy holders a div
idend of 15 to 20 per cent ; that is ,
it has saved in cost * to its policy
holders that much. There is no
man but what would like to be in
a business that would yield him 20
per cent profit. The Mutual In
surance Journal.
The Mutual Insurance people of
the state can be proud of the fact
that Nebraska has within its board
ers some of the yery strongest
Mutual companies in the world ,
Many both farm and city whose poli
cies are as good as gold anywhere
and the reputation of which goes
unquestioned. Among the number
none are better than the Farmers
Mutual Insurance Company ad
The Nebraska Mercantile Mutual
Insurance Company , both of Lin
coln , and the Trans-Missi&sippi
Mutual Fire Association of Oma
ha , and our readers should carry
in these companies all of the insur
ance they can place with them up
to the full amount desired. No
person claims but that in case of
loss they are fairly treated and
when the amount is agreed upon ,
paid promptly. The Mutual - Insurance
surance Journal.
These companies are represent
ed by I. M. Eice of Valentine. In
these companies together with the
German Mutual of Omaha he has
written thousands of dollars of in
surance for people in Valentine ,
Crookston , Cody , Merriman ,
Gordon , "Wooklake and through
out Cherry Co. There has never
been a question as to the reliability
of these mutual companies and
those holding policies in them can
testify to the saving in cost of in
surance. There should be no dis
crimination against them because
they have saved thousands of dollars
lars to policy holders , and insur
ance rates have been lowered 25
per cent by virtue-of the existence
of these companies , in which even
those opposed to mutual insurance
have profited. They insure city
and farm property , school houses
and churches.

father Heth had passed away some
time the night before. He had retir
ed as usual and in the morning was
found dead. , Mr. Heth had been a
sufferer for many years and although
his death was not a surprise to any
one it is none the less sad. M. Heth

The Methodist social was a success
last Friday night but we think it rath
er hard on the bald headed men to be
obliged to pay a fine. Perhaps that
was to help out our new druggist , if
so all right. Clare Cole was fined for
not bringing a partner. He declares
that it was not his fault but we are of
the opinion that it was as we know of
several young ladies that did not re
ceive an invitation to accompany him
to the said social.
