A California clergyman, Rev.

iiome from a tour through Great
Britain on a bicyclo. His cyclo
meter showed that he had ridden
09(5 miles. Ho covered the ontiro
distance between tho South of
Englnud and tho North of Scot
land. Mr. Torry's object was to
study the social, industrial and
economic conditions of tho peo
ple. Ho says ho found very fow
unemployed men and was sur

the common people. Tho wheel

This is becauso it works acids out

This may be the warning
cry to you some night.
Whether it refers to your store,
factory, mill, office, or resi
dence, it means that all of your
valuable account books, secu

notes, receipts, mortgages, etc.,
will be destroyed if not pro
tected by a fire-proof safe.
Can you afford to run this
hazardous risk? The loss of
an insurance policy alone in
nine cases out of ten would
cause you endless trouble and
expense in going to law to se
cure a settlement, and then
your chances of coming to a
satisfactory adjustment with
the insurance company would
j indeed be very slim. It is a
duty that you owe to your
, business, to your family and
to yourself to protect these
things against both fire and
thieves. That old tin box or
