THE BISMARCK BROTHERHOOD.
A NEW PLAN IN LIFE INSURANCE.
Thu Tcutonlit Lifo Inturanco company,
of Chicago, in connection with tho Bis
mark Brotherhood, offers extraordinary
Inducements to nil who may dcslro to In
sure cither life or health, or both together.
The premiums am so graded ns to meet
tho wants of all clnssos, whether rich or
poor, tho Insured having the cliolco to
pay hN premiums yearly, quarterly,
monthly or weekly.
A payment of CO cent per weok will
secure to the insured ten dollars per
week, in the event of sickness Bnd to his
lawful repre'cntitlvo 51,000 In the event
of death. A payment of 38 cents per
week secures to tlio Insured tho $10 week
ly allowance, und tho sum of $."i00 in tho
ovent of death. Thu, It is seen, that a
very trifling sum, an amount that cun bo
paid by the poorest in our midst, will se
cure exemption from want, in tho event of
sickness, nod provision for tho loved onc,
In the event thu insured hould die. Wo
senrcely need commend to the patronage
of our pcoplo nn organization that I- cal
culated to relieve to much di'tress to
bring a competence where, otherwise,
thero would bo suffering and want.

Tbo Ohio river ut this point has risen a
couplo of feet, caused by a big rise in the
.Mississippi river. There is no current
in tho harbor at all on account of the back
water. Reports from tho Ohio abovo

river; it is slowly and steadily falling, and
the channel Is becoming troublesome.
Tho decllno In tho Cumberland continues,
nnd on Harpeth Shoals there it only twenty-four
inches water. Tho Tennessee is
about at low ns it cull get.
The Mississippi list been swelling dur
ing the last few days and there is a fair
channel to Si. Louis. The rivers are In a
splendid condition for the Juno rise.
