You w lit probably ask: How can the MUTUAL

figures on such small pit) ments r
"J be answer Is plain: 'Iho experience of as

United States establishes the feasibility ot pay.

Now, then, not one ot tho many associations

understand that no dlfllculty can possibly occur
to prevent the redemption ot our bonds.

It requires but a moment's thought to ses
that, It the various Insurance societies can and
do pay death benefits from 1 1.000 to 3,000 on
average assessments for less in amount than
ours, It Is not only possible, but an actual fact,
for our Association to redeem their bonds ot
tho exact figures advertised, and thus glv e pur
chasers benefits far be) ond those ever offered
b) any other association In the land.
Every other association, whether life in
surance or on an) other system, such, for ex
ample, as the "Kunltable Leiguc," tho "Order
of'Jontl" rnd "Iron Hall," would actually
cense to exist if new members were not ob
tained. To prove to you the vitality and enulty ot the
plan nt our Association, It Is snOlclcnt to say
that since our organisation Jio less than four ot
the associations of this city have found it Ju
dicious and necessary to completely rovl'e

a soldier reported to Oencral Carr that
Captain Stanton ami fifty soldiers wero
having an engagement with Indians near
Wounded Knee, (icncral Carr sent Lieu

Some time later Captain Stanton mid

t-ume time after noon he noticed 11 large
party of Indians with a herd of ponies
coming from tlieu'.ist.
Ho immeellatelv gave chaso and after
running some miles gradually drew nearer
the Indians who began tiring nt the troops.
Shots were exchanged finite llvelv tor
some time when the Indians made for a
creek called Wounded Knee. This they
followed for somo dlslnnco and wero lost
to lew In tho Had Lands. Captain Stan

of the Indian ponies were stampeded.
To-day (lenenil Carr will send out u

Tho murder fur which La Montague was
hanged was n brutal and cold-bloo led

unnaturally Intimate vvitli I,n Montague,
who was her own brother, and charged
the latter with tlio crime.
