RULING IMPORTANT TO
The court of appeals of our neigh
bring state, Missouri., has just ren
dered a decision that will, if sus
tained by other courts, greatly affect
the interests ' of fraternal life insur
ance societies. The decision will be
of interest in Rack Island, as it in
volves a great order whose headquar
ters are here. The decision in brief is
to the effect that a failure to pay an
astessment when due does not neces
sarily invalidate the insurance, or in
other words that unless a policy is
cancelled as soon as it is lapsed the
society is liable for the face of the
Tne case at issue was one bv which
the heirs rf John Tevi. of ExoeMar
Spring. Mo , will be paid the f.tce
value of his insurauce policy in the
Molern Wood met., although bis pol
icy a4sessiuent had b en overdue two
weeks ween be dkd. and the dues
were not paid ud to date until more
than two nours after hi death.
It a t-hown that Tevi, in com
mon with about SO per cent of the to
tal local niemberhip of the organiza
tion, was invariably from a day o a
fortnight in arrears, and the conten
tion of the attorneys for the widow
was that inasmuch'as the custom had
been to accept Tevis' money, not
withstanding it was generally ten
dered in arrears. the same money and
tender must hi good after death, not
withstanding then the policy would bt
immediately due. Tne trial court
he:d this was gor-d lw, and no the
court of appeals affirm? the decision.
Every effort has been made to retain
the assea.-nifeiit, but the court he'd
that inasmuch as the custom of thx
lodge had been to take money from
delinquent wbile they lived, it must
continue to take it from their repre
sentatives when dead in order to keep
up the policy.
The case was stubbornly fought.
The order trid to how that the sec
retary who took the monthly assess
ment was tae agent of the lode. The
court now holds that he is the agent
of the lodge and not the agent of the
members, but j t as a ticket seller
is the agent of a railroad and not the
agent of the man to whom he sells a
ticket. Boing the agent of the lodge
what that st-cretary doe he doe- tor
the lodge, and the day he start in
accepting dues from the members

dy he abrogates all claues iu the
policy which say that if duet are not

LUMBER MILLS ARE
CLOSING FOR SEASON
Ou!y a few weeks remain before the
lumber mills along the river will
start to close down for the winur

STJETA0E ! er9 to secure all the material they
needed. Unless severely cold weather

Some people have an idea that
there is a place up north where aU
the logs from each company's forest
are made up and are started thence
on their long j mrney down the river.
This is not the case, h wever. in
ma y instances Many raf:s are madrt

each of the company' forests have

companies of the M ssissippi river.
Tte logs are u t from the forest
lands by contractors. Sometimes
as many as 40 coutractors are
wo'king for one company. T.ese
logs are marked by each contractor.
The legs thus marked are taken to the
bmls of the streams and when tte
water is at the proper stage and the
dams are full, are dumped into the
river to be cariied bt-1 w when the
Hood gates are open. Tnis year there
has been a scarcity of water acd the
result nas been a le-i ev-y tak to get
