It was a well satlslled crowd oi
fanners ihat gathered at Parma Au
gust 2ti to attend the annual meet
ing of the Xew Madrid Comity Far
mers Mutual Fire Insurance Com
pany. Thay had every right to be
well satisfied with the record made
by their company during the first
year of Us operation, for the yor.i
just passed has be:?n a very aucceca
ful one for the organization viid bur
jtiFtilied the faith of those farmer'
who, with the assistance of thr
Farm Uureas of Xew Madrid, Psm
iscot and Mississippi counties, worr
responsible for the formation of thr
Secretary Slakes Koporfc for Year.
Geo. M. Meier, soeretary-troasurej
of the company, made a report of
the car's business, which was unan
imously uc epted. This rejiol-t
?liov. ?d that 3oi policies had been
written during tho year, totalling
$27-1,510.00; that a lire loss of $300
had been paid, and that tho, total
expenses, iueludiug agents' fcis, in
terest, organization expenses and tlu
expense oi carrying on tho busines'
e mounted to $710. -38. The tota!
receipts, including initial premiums
and policy fees on both ilro am!
storm policies, amounted to $1,(J5S.
i;. The books of tho company wort,
audited by H. C. Allen o Parma and
J. K. Robbins of Murston. Mr. Rob
bins, reporting for this rominftee
stated that the books were found
very satisfactory and complimented
iho secretary upon the manner ir
which the records had been kept.
Doth the amendments to th by
1..W3, proposod in the notice of the
ennual meeting, .wore adopted. The
first amendment provided that im
plements' shall be insured only dur
ing the time they are stored in isur
able buildings and net in op'eration.
The second nmandment authorized
the Board of Directors to nccep.
risks in e::cess of $1500.00, provided
such excess risks wore in accordance
with tb.3 requirements anil limita
tions of tho Farmers Mutual He-Insurance

wore immediately insured in said
100 Per Cent Assessment Voted.
Tile question of the annual ;'3ess
ment was discussed and Wiis order
ed by tho Hoard of Directors thr.t a
100 per cent assessment should bt
levied, and tho secretary was i:i
structed to proceed with the collec
liou of said assessment. The 100
per cent assessment will moan that
the a:-sessment will be the same .'
the initial premium paid by the
policy holder that is, if a policy
holder paid an initial premium on
the basis of 40 cents per huiidr.H1
dollar valuation, his assessment
will be on tho basis of -10 cents pci
hundred dollar valuation. While
i his assessment will bring in mov
money than is needed for carrying
-n the business at this time, it will
-erT. e as a. rescrv? fund to tako csrc
t possible future losses without the
necessity -of making special assess
ments. Directors Elected.

3Iutual" Tire Insurance Means Big
Saving; for Tanners.
A mutual iiro insurance co'nnnny
properly organized, efficiently man
aged and safoly conducted, will af
ford safe Insurance at cost, and this
cost will be found to bo a groat oal
less than tho rate churged by old
line companies. One farmer, who
attended the annual meeting al
Parma, stated that through tho New
Madrid County Farmers' Mutual
Fire Insurance-' Company he is now
gettelng tho same Insurance at a
cost of l.S0 per year that form
erly cost him 15.00 per year tliro'
tho old lino company. When a com
pany can render service of this kind
it is safo to predict that its opera
tion will bo nttended with succesr
and that tho New Madrid County
Farmers' Fire Insurance Compa
ny is looking forward to a very
rapidly increasing business in tlu
years to come,
