IN JUAREZ STREETS
Teniion Between Two ITationi at
Border Shown by Contemptuous
Attitude to "Gringoi."
GAVTRA SHOWS HIS HATRED
EL TAXO, Tex., March IS. The
tension between the two nations at
this point oa the border was no
ticeably sharper today, as far as
Jnares waa concerned. General Oa
vira coupled his announcement as to
the whereabouts of the American
troops with a statement that he
would no longer receive American
newspaper correspondents. Few
Americans visited Juares today and
those few returned with word of a
decidedly hostile attitude shown to
ward them by the Mexicans.
In some Instances the children in
the streets threw mud at visiting
Americans and shouted Insults after
them. Customs officials on the
American side of the international
bridge reported that they had heard
scattered shots fired In Juaret dur
ing the past two nights, but were
unable to ascertain the cause of the
Threatened itllk Death.
Andres Oarcla, 1'arrania consul here,
announced today that hs wss twins
bombarded with thrests of death and
Insults sent through the mails by fol
lowers of Fells Diss. He said that simi
lar communications were being sent to
General Oavlra 'In Juares.
One such communication was written
en a copy of an American newspaper
wbloa had large headlines announcing
j that Carransa had agreed to permit
American troops to cross the border.
Over this was written:
"You are a traitor to the national
honor of Mexico and will meet the fate
r such." .
Another letter contained high flown
phrases of Fells Diss and denounced
Carransa and Oarcla as betrayers cf i
their country. A third missive contained
a fairly well-drawn caricature of the
first chief, surrounded with obscene and
Consul Oarcla said that he had de
tailed some of his agents to trace the
senders of these letters and that hs was
practically certain of their Identity. He
aid that as soon as he was sure of his
men he would probably lay his Informa
tion before the American authorities.

WASHINGTON, March 17. Reports to
the State and War departments Indicated
that condition generally in the Interior
of Mexico were fairly quiet General
Fun ton reported In one dispatch that
there was some excitement at various
points along the frontier. He said that
trains southbound on the border carried
only a few passengers. Other dispatches
received from him were of purely routine
character, It was said authoritatively, .
Consular advices to tho stats depart
. metit were to the of Isot that quiet pre
' vallej In virtually all sections of Mexico
with the exception of Tamproo and Tor
roon. At Tamplco and in the adjacent
oil fields Americans were reported to be
vneasy, although no disorders had de
veloped. The attitude of the military
forces In the district la said to be un
tavorable to Americans.
It Is believed, however, that when the
acquiescent attitude of the do facto gov
ernment toward the campaign against
Villa becomes known there will tb no
further cauae for apprehension.
Stlaalloa Not New Os.
The situation In Tamplco la not a new
ne, and Is not a direct result of the de
termination of the United States to cap
Torreon has for sometime been a seat
of disorder. Consul Williams, who left
Ms consulate st Torreon In charge of the
Urlttiih vice consul returned to the border
with a parly of Americans reported to
the State department late today that he
had quit his poet because of unbearable

PAW9. March 1.-The retirement of
Admiral . Von Tirj.lts. is considered In
French official circles, according to the
Pails newspapers, to be due to the fact
Ithpt he has opposed the coming out of
the German fleet, while Fmperor Wil
liam desires to sen it enffaRe ttin lirltlsh

quently drawn that a chanfre may be
looked for In the German naval policy
and that the recent appearance of Ger

Our Symmetrical Growth Makes This Pyramid Possible
TO POLICYHOLDERS: While the history of this company
for the past'eleven years has been an unbroken record of steady prog
ress and financial success, the extraordinary percentages' of increase
in insurance in force, assets and surplus, make 1915 the best year in
the entire life of the institution. During 1915 the percentage of net
increase in Insurance Account to New Business was 52, probably the
greatest of any company.
DOES INSURANCE PAY? Upon
policies which became claims last year
there had been paid total premiums of
$58,415. Families of the insured received
back every dollar of the premiums and
$285,467.72 IN EXCESS OF THAT
AMOUNT or a profit of over 589 per
cent on the investment. Old-line-insurance
in these 169 instances had superla
tive merit AS AN INVESTMENT. YES!
INSURANCE DOES PAY.
Our business is limited to the interior
section where living: conditions are favor
able and as a result the death rate of the
Company continues low. Death claims
paid laat year amounted to $4 per $1,000
of insurance in force. Good interest
earnings and low death rate enable the
Kansas City Life to furnish protection at
the LOWEST NET COST.
New insurance issued has- averaged
$72,000.00 for every business day of 1915,
increasing: the number of company pa
trons to approximately 50,000 persons.
The Kansas City Life has always been
conspicuous for economy in administra
tion. The total compensation of Home
Office officials, directors and employees,
last year was $68,698 less than 2Vfc per
cent of income.
More than eighty-five per cent of the
Company's funds are safely invested in
first mortgages on improved real estate,
school bonds and loans to policyholders,
at satisfactory rates of interest. Con
stantly increasing land values in the West
make farm mortgage loans hiirhly desir
able investments. , . . ,
The ratio of assets to liabilities was
substantially increased, during the past
year a striking evidence .of careful ad
ministration of the Company's affairs.
The excess of income over . operating
expenses was $1,880,854.49, of which
$973,299.68 was paid to policyholders and
$850,859.63 was added to their reserves
thus 75 of the entire premium income
was devoted to policyholders.
The Kansas City Life dominates in its
home territory in the amount of new in
surance issued. During nineteen-fifteen,
as in former years, its new business in
western territory, including Missouri,
Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma
and northern Texas, was the greatest of
any American company. This institution
could receive no higher endorsement than
this generous recognition and patronage
from home territory where the company
is best known.

with men in the field, previous experience is not necessary to success.
