, This company was organized in 1882, as a mutual, and did its business
on that plan until May last, when" the law having been changed to allow
it, they created a guarantee capital of $50,000 and cesisea doing business
on the mutual plan.
They have over $120,000 in well secured assets, and their ratio of
aesets to liabilities wi'l compare favorably with any company doing
business in the state.
They have paid ail just losses, and propose in the future to pay them
promptly as any other company.
The officers have a reputation in this community for business integrity
that is a guarantee of fair dealing, and propose to do only a fair business
in every respect.
W believe it is to the best interest of all who wish insurance to
buildup a reliable company in this state, and thus in some measure stop
the drain of money th t now goes out of the state for insurance.
There was paid last .year to companies located in other states nearly
$2,000,000 in premiums, and only about $500,000 was paid in losses.

TIIH SCHOOL BOSDS.
On tbe qnestion of voting school bonds
in this district last Tuesday, the proposi
tion seems to have been carried. Twelve
otes were cast against it and 109 for it.
Tbe question has been raised, that 109
voters are not a majority of those in the
The majority of the people of this dis
trict ore in favor of providing for the
building of a fair-price school house. If
there is Jiny chance for quibble as to
whether the proposition for bonds was
carried last Saturday, givo us another
election It will not take long, and it will
possess the ment of safety.
The victory of L. K. Pratt over Gilke
son for judge is of a magnitude sufficient
to please the most exacting.
Below are Mr. Pratt's certain or approx
imate majorities in the counties which we
have heard from:
Ellis county, 104.
Books county, 436.
Trego county, 215.
Graham county, 400.
Gove county, 36.
St. John county, 8.
Sheridan eounfcy, 236.
Decatur county, 257.
Norton county, 400.
Total majority for Mr. Pratt in the
above counties, 2,0J2.
To hear from et are the counties of
Phillips, Riwlin, Thomas and several
unorganized counties. Mr. Pratt, of
course, has a majority in every one of
these. It now looks as if the World's
advance estimate of 2,5C0 majority in the
district for Mr. Pratt was too low rather
than too high.
This is a glorious victory for Mr. Pratt,
in that it is the clear conscience of the
masses of (he good people demanding the
selection of a capable, worthy man for
the high oilbe of julge of the courts of
this extensive julicial district.
It i" een more than this. It is a re
buke to the small array of so-called Be
publicans who created that "tempest in a
teapot" along this line of railroad.
Thursday morning, between 7 and 8
o'clock, the east-bound accommodation
train, with Conductor Doggrell in charge,
ran into a handcar five miles this side of
Cleveland, St. John county. Both engines
jumped the track. One was disabled.
Several cars were thrown from the track,
but our railway repoiter has not returned
from the scene to tell us just how many.
One of the engineers was scalded badly.
The track was mended about 6 p. m.
Thursday. During the night the patch-ed-up
accommodation train pulled
through Wa-Keeney on the way east.
