THE BISMARCK BROTHERHOOD.
A NEW PLAN IN LIFE INSURANCE.
The Toutonin Lifo Insurnnco company.
of Chicago, in connection with tho Bis

inducements to all who may desire to in
sure cither lifo or health, or both together
Tho promiums aro so graded ns to meet
the wants of all clnsses, whether rich or
poor, tho insured having tho clioico to
pay his premiums yearly, quarterly,
monthly or weekly.
A paymont of CO cents per week will
secure to tho insured ten dolinrs per
week, in the ovent of sickness, and to hi
lawful representative $1,000 in the ovent
of death. A payment of 118 cents pe:
week secures to tho Insured the $10 week
ly allowance, and tho sum of $.r00 in th
uvent of death. Thus, it is seen, that
very trifling sum, an amount that can be
paid by tho poorest In our midst, will se
cure exemption from want, in the event of
sickness, and provision for tho loved ones,
in tho ovent tho insured should die. W
scarcely need commend to the patronago
of our pcoplo an organization that is cul
ciliated to relievo so much distress t
bring a competonco where, otherwise,
there would bo suffering and want.

the church with their banners, whllo a
processional hymn was being sung by tho
young ladles of tho choir. It is also
worthy of mention that each class was pro
vidod with a largo old English letter, com
mencing with T, which being handed to
the superintendent, was by him hung
ovor tho altar; tho whole constituting tho
words "Tho Comforter is Come." Mr.

is a muss of ico cream, (supposed to bc)

what ho has to say without regard to
the efloct it may havo on his personal in

good as any othor man's. In politics ho is
us candid as he Is honest in his everyday

allow us to say,) is a peculiar idea ho has
that certain democrats in cortnin circles
aro entitled to his support for all the
offices In tho gift of tho people. A strango
impression socms to linger on his mind,
that any democrat, outsido of this circle,
