FLATTERED THE MINISTER
An amusing anecdote In Lord
Frederic Hamilton's "Days Before
Yesterday" concerns a fresh draft of
Gordon Highlanders, who shortly af
ter arriving at Calcutta were march
ed to service at St. Andrew' church.
The most optimistic mosoquito
had never imagined such a succul
et banquet as that afforded by 400
bare kneed, kilted Highlanders, and
the mosquitoes made the fullest use
of their opportunity. Soon the
church 'resounded with the vigorous
clapping of hands on bare knees and
legs as the men endeavored to kill
a few of their little tormentors.
Hearing the loud clapping, the
minister puused and said: "My
brethren. It Is verra gratifying to
meenister of the word to learn that
his remarks meet wl' the approba
tion of, hi bearers; but I'd have you
to remember that applause Is strict
ly oot of place in the bouse of God.

enormous and should make every Riower not only frel the
necessity ol insuring hie tobacco crop against hail storms lust
but to do that cry thing and do it at once.
What Dr. Halley Says: &.
operative Association, upon congratulating an insurance com
pany on lowering its rates on tobacco hail insurance, said,
"Within the period thtt I hava had kail insurance I have had
four severe lotxes. The rr.cney I received exceeded consider
ably what I paid in, to say nothing of my pac ol mind that
1 was fully protected in case of a storm. I have always advo
cated carrying hail insurance on tobacco without which every
grower takes a chance to lose all. With it he can, in safety, rjo
into the business of producing a crop which reijuirii, as does
tobacco, so much labor, time and money.
Now that the Burley Crowers have gone into on organization
to handle their business in a modern economic buai.icss like
way, I tee no reason why all growert can not tnl;e out insurance
on the reduced ratet the companies are now quoting."
Look up the insurance agent in your section now, and let him
protect you against the lost of your tobacco. Policies effective
