Ten good reasons why you should give Corporate Surety Bonds. Because It saves you the embarrass ment of asking your friends to. go on your bond. Because-It saves your friends the embarrassment of refusing to go on your bond. Became It saves you tho embarrass ment of refusing to go on your friends' bond. Because It Saves Loss of Friendship. Because A Personal Bond may be good today and absolutely worthless in six months from today, due to the many causes that operate to change the mind and character of man. Becauso Corporate Bonds made are for stability and permanent protection, while personal bonds are hazardous and uncertain. Because Personal surety may die bo. fore theicompletion of tho bond, wjiilc Corporatej Surety lives beyond the lives of men, Because Corporate Surety charges a premium for making your bond and is prepared to meet a loss, while Per sonal Surety does not make any such charge and does not expect any loss. Because If a loss does occur, the merits of tho case are thoroughly pa'ssed upon by experienced men who make the Surety business n specialty. Personal) bondsmen usually anticipate no loss and If one does occur, are in no position to make nn investigation. Because The Maryland Casualty Company of Baltimore, Md., is one of the largest compnnies in this line of business, and I, as agent and attorney-in-fact for the company I can execute bonds and bind the company, whjle you wait, up to $50,000.00.
