the Common Pleas Court. '
All that have property to insure, will pleas?
inspect and scrutinize the preceding reliable
expose ol this old and lung trice' Corpora
tion. For usefulness, security and prompti
tude, it ha ever stood first in its line of trans
actions and for ability and means will at
tract the attention oi the insuring public to
coniirm then con faience in it. 1 lie state
ment is so prepared anyone can contrast its
condition with local and state Insurance of
fices if so disposed. Its investments are of
l hat so1 id character as not to be materially af
lected by the late depression in that cla?s ol
asselts.
The incjeaseof its capital stock to 6500.
000, is a bona fide cash addition to the strength
of the corporation, and a permanent invest
ment lor the pledge and security of its policies
The necessity aud real benefits of in.-mani e
are well exemplified in the fact that the com
pany has paid cash losses during the past year,
at its Western Branch nrhce alone, in Cin
cinnati, to the. sum of 6216,501) 08, most ol
which has been paid considerably in advance
of the time legally due. and il has bad no suit
or litigation, If all or any of these facts are
inducements to the cnntiiiuiiiice of its valu
able patronage, or its im reuse, they will find
its agents ever ready to attend tot'ho demands
ol business as heretofore, with promptitude,
at as favorable rates and terms, as securily
