PR.ESI DENT ANDERSON'S PAPER>
President Anderson brought the sub?
ject up by reading a paper on Insurance
rates: In part It was as follows:
"Tho Insurance people claim," ?aid Mr.
Andorson, "that rates are too low, and
that thocompaifles nro making no money;
but the"'annual cash dividends and sur
pitia .communications of these corporations
provo very clonrly that tho contrary Is
true. Ton Now York companies?the
Continental, German-Amorlcan, Germania,
Glen3 Falls, Hanover,. Homo, Niagara,
Phoenix, Westchestor and Willlamsburg?
have paid dividends for the last ten years
of 19.8 per cent, per annum, bosides add-'
lng to their surplus, ?15,089,050, or at th?
rate of 17 por cent, per annum, showing
?n annual average profit of 38.8 per. cent,
on tho capital Invested. This profit has
lieon made, too. In tho face of tlio fact
that tho an'orago expense account of f.ro
companies Is about 42 per cent, of the
premiums, a groat proportion of which
Is paid to local agents, who solicit and
handle a largo number of small policies.
Only 'five American companies ha?vo
$2,000.000 or more of capital?tho Aetna,
of Hartford; the Insurance Company of
..North America; Home, of New York;
Springfield Fire and Marino nnd Phoenix
of'Hartford. In tho last ten years these
companies havo pnld $18,170,000 In divi?
dends and havo added $8,003,921 to their

Signs of Polluted Blood.
There ia nothing so repulsive looking and disgusting as an old sore,
You worry over it till the brain grows weary and work with it until the
patience is exhausted, and the very sight o? the old festering, sickly looking
place makes you irritable, despondent and desperate.
A chronic sore iathe very best evidence that your blood is in an unhealthy
and impoverished condition, that your constitution is breaking down under
the effects of some serious disorder. The taking of strong medicines, like
mercury or potash, will sometimes so pollute and vitiate the blood and im?
pair the general system that the merest scratch or bruise results in obstinate
non-healiug sores of the most offensive character,
Often an inherited tain t breaks out in frightful eating sorej upon the limbs
or face in old age or middle life. Whenever a sore refuses to heal the blood
is always at fault, and, while antiseptic washes, salves, soaps and powders
can do much to keep down the inflammation and cleanse the sore, it will
uever heal permanently till the blood itself has been purified nnd the deadly
germs and poisons destroyed, and with S. S, S. thiscan be accomplished?the
polluted blood Is purified and invigorated, and when
rich.purebloodisagainclrculating freely throughout
the body the flesh around the old sore begins to take
I ou a natural color, the discharge of matter ceases
and the place heals over.
0, 3. S, is both a blood purifier and tonic that puts your blood in order
and at the same time tpnes up the system and builds up the general health.
If you have a chronic sore write us. No charge for medical advice, ,
