Death Claims Grandma Fincher.
Died, at Peuawawa, November 19,
Mrs, Mary Ann Fincher, wife of Emsley
Fincher, aged 76 years and 21 days,
She was born iv Center county, Pennsyl
vania, October 29, 1834. She moved

Max Figman's success in the Edith
Ellis comedy drama, "Mary Jane's Pa,"
was so great last season, and the demand
for return engagements so many, that
Johu Cart is keeping him in the play
agaiu this season. "Mary Jane's Pa" is
said to be the beat vehicle Mr. Figtnan
has ever bad. The role of Hiram
Perkins, who deserts his wife and family
and afterward returns like a modern
Enoch Arden, is exactly fitted to his
peculiar style of acting. It is a part
that, while unlikeable in the first act>
becomes most appealing as the play goes
on. His scenes with little Mary Jane are
intensely interesting. Mr. Figman will
be at The Ridgeway soon.

If you ha^p catarrti and have constant
ringing noises in your ears look into the
matter at once.
It's a pretty wire pipn that catarrh is
spreading and is making its wny through
the EustHchian tubes that lend from the
nose to the ears.
When catarrh gets to the ears partial

noises in yrur ears go to V T. McCroe

and drive out catarrh.
To curt' catarrh BTOMEI should be
breathed through the Hyomti inhaler
tor h few minutes, four or five times a
day. Just pour a few drops into the

It kilis the gnrnin; soothes the irrita

CLAIMANTS WANT THEIR MONEY
The Insurance Companies Take Too
Long to Pay Their Losses.
If you sustain a loss how soon miy
you expect to receive your insurance
money in order to replace the property?
This is a question in which every prop
erty owner in interested, yet few know
whether they are insured in a company
that pays its losses promptly or not.
The average property owner selects
bis insurance according to the agent he
wisneh to receive a commission on bin
premium rather than on the merits of
the company. When a loss occurs he
finds that he is not dealing witn hie
agent friend but with the company «nd
its adjuster, which frequently talk differ
ently from the agent.
An examination of the official insur
ance reports t-how that of all companies
reporting to the state of New York the
losses unpaid amount to the average
losses sustained duriug a period of 73
days. This indicates that tie average
company takes 73 days after a fire to
settle a loss The reports also show
thar the resisted lueses amount to two
and three tenths per cent of the losses
sustained during the year.
In comparison with this the North
western Mutual Fire Association of Se
attle has just compiled some interesting
data covering its record for the past ten
years. During that time it has paid
903 losses. The average time between
date of fire and date of adjustment was
15 days. The average time of payment
after receipt of adjustment was one and
three fourths days. The total time be
tween date of fire and date of payment
was sixteen and three-fourths days, thus
requiring less than onr-fourth the time
taken by the average rompanv Of the
wh<--le amount paid just $537 00 has
been paid by order of the court, or about
one hundreth of one per cent of the total
losses. The amount thus paid by order
of the court was bat vine per cent of the
amount sued for ou these claims, show
ing that the company had good grounds
for contenting the claims made.
