Important to Farmers.
Of all policies of insurance that
tVcre is a difference in, it is tha farm
policy. The only thing .that is the
same in all farm policies is the price
you pay for them, so you should see
that you got the best. Tho Notional
Union Fire Insurance Company issues
one of the most liberal policies issued
in the stato today, and I can prove it,
if you will let me compare it with your
present policy, uon't wait until your
present polioy-expireB, but bring it in
now and let us compare them, thea
when it does expire you will know
where to get your insurance Jin the
future. C. F. Temple.
