Litchfield Mutual Fire Insurance Ce.
THE Directors of the Litchfield Mutual Fire
Insurance Company, in submitting their
26th annual report, propose to submit therewith
a brief summary of their operations during the
quarter of a century which has elapsed eince their
organization, for the purpose of determining
whether the Company has fulfilled the design and
expectations of its founders by affording the con
venience of a central location in our County, ex
tending facilities and resulting benefits by means,
of agencies established in each town, and still pre
serving a just and uniform rate of insurance, and
by avoiding the assumption of hazardous risks by
ageDts, by subjecting all survey, of property and
applications for insurance to a Central Board of
Directors ; and thus furnishing to each member
of the Company a safe, economical, and “ home"
insurance company, at equitable rates, and secur
ing the resulting profits to the insured, as their
common property.
How well the principle ot mutual insurance has
been sustained, as an economical and reliable sys
tem, will appear from the following statement
of the operations of the Company during the 27
years of its existence :
The following statement exhibits the amount
in cash received for premiums, the amount charg
ed on the Company books, reserved as a guarantee
fund, and as a basis for assessment, if necessary ;
and also, the amount of property insured—which
we have arranged into periods of five years, while
our policies were thus extended ; and three jearB
for the subsequent period, the last being the pre
sent term of insurance :

The Company have no unpaid losses nor claims
of any kind against them.
They have never made an assessment, and dur
ing the past year, have made a dividend of 10 per
cent, on tlxeir renewal of policies of insurance,
which they will continue through the present
year, and probably for the future
They have a by-Jaw which prevents the assur
ing of any risk, which, in any contingency, in
volves the loss of more than $2,500 of property.
Hence there can be no apprehension of any future
assessment. The funds of the Company are loan
ed on bonds and mortgages, and other securities
where they can be made available at ai.y time.
For the prevention of fraud, and as a protec
tion against over insurance, the Company pay
three fourths of the cash value of buildings, which
is usually, (deducting the foundation.) the full
value of the property destroyed—and also, the
full cash value of all partial losses on buildings,
and on all personal property contained therein,
within amount of the insurance. The Company
have inserted in their “ stereotyped policy’ ’ a pro
'vision, by wnich, in any case of disagreement in
relation to the kiss or damage sustained by tbe in
sured, tbe questions arising therein shall be sub
mitted to three judicious and disinterested per
sons as arbitrators, selected in tbe usual way by
both parties; or if either party neglects to ap
point, it shall be theduty of the Judge of Probate
qualified to act, to make such appointment, whose
award in writing, after a fair hearing, shall lie
final. This has been found a just, prompt, and
very satisfactory method of adjusting all claims of
a doubtful character, avoids all litigation, and is
not expensive. The financial affairs of ihe Com
pany have been managed with the most rigid
economy. The expenses have been mostly for re
newal of policies and the compensation to agents,
(not exceeding 10 per cent.) The incidental ex
penses of rent, postage, and other services, have
not exceeded seventy dollars per annum The his
tory of theCompany exhibits the fact, that stren th
and eminent responsibility are necessary to render
a Company prosperous, and give it the full confi
dence of the public. Under the Five Years sys
tem, the Company barely existed with a cash sur
plus ; but under the present system, and for the
ten years, it has not expended 40 per cent, of
its annual cash receipts, and has become one of
the strongest Companies in the state. Other mu
tual Companies charge from 5 to 10 per cent, on
the property insured, on which they receive 5 per
cent, in cosh, and the balance in notes—present
ing a large amount in notes as capital. Our Com
pany have contented themselves with charging
only the amount usually charged by Stock Com
panies, and have not made the insured responsi
ble for more than they would have paid in cash,
in annual insurance. To estimate, therefore, cor
rectly, the benefits which have resulted to the in
sured on the mutual principle, we hare only to
add the cancelled and uneancelled premiums
charged on the bocks of the Company with the
cash received—making an aggregate of $185,
236.76-. Deducting the losses and expenses, ($34,
127.31,) and the balance, $151,109.45 has been
saved—thus taking as an example, a detached
risk, at 40 cents on $100. less than one-filth of
the premiums has been used--making the insui
ance cost less than 8 cents on that sum for each
The Financial Summary of the operations and
condition of the Company, after 27 years of expe
rience, are the best argument which can be ad
duced in favor of the system of Mutual Insurance,
and should satisfy the most incredulous, that it
is both profitable and reliable, when judiciously
managed, and at the same time, sustains theemi
nent responsibility of the Company, its claims to
public confidence, and its adaptation to the cir
cumstances of our community, for such risks as
can be legitimately assumed by the Company.

J. c. ATEB k Co. Cents: I feel it my duty to ac
knowledge what your Sarsaparilla has done for me*
Having inherited a Scrofulous infection, I have suffered
from it in various ways for years. Sometimes it buret
out in Ulcers on my hands and arms; sometimes it
turned inward and distressed me at the stomach. Two
years ago it broke out on my head aud covered my scalp
and ears with oue sore, which was painful and loathsome
beyond description. I tried many medicines and several
physicians, but without much relief from any thing. In
met, the disorder grew worse. At length I was rejoiced
to read in the Gospel Messenger that you had prepared
an alterative (Sarsaparilla), for 1 knew from your reputa
tion that any thing you made must be good. 1 sent to
Cincinnati and got it, and used it till it cured me. I took
it, as you advise, in amull doses of a teaspoonful over a
mouth, and used almost three bottles. New and healthy
skin soon began to form under the scab, which after a
while foil off. My skin is now dear, aud 1 kuow by my
feelings that the disease has goue from my system. You
can well believe that I feel what I am saying when I tell
you, that 1 hold you to be one of the opoetles of the age,
and remaiu ever gratefully. Yours,

Zcbulon Sloan of l‘rosi>ect, Texas, writes: “ Three bot

over two years.”

Uterine Ulceration* Female Diseases*
Dr. J. B. S. Chsmilng, of Now York City, writes ; “ I
most cheerfully comply with the request of your agent in
saving I have found your Sarsaparilla a most excellent
alterative in the numerous complaints for wliirh wo
employ such a remedy, but especially In hkmale Diseases
of the Scrofulous diathesis. I have cured many inveter
ate rases of Leucorrhoea by ft. and some where the com
plaint was caused by ulceration of the uterus. The ulcer
ation itself was soon cured. Nothing within my knowl
edge equals it for llieae female derailments.”
Edward S. Marrow, of Newbury, Ala., wi lies, “A dan
gerous ovarian tumor on one of the females in my family,
which had defied all the remedies we could employ, has
at length been completely cured by your Extract of Sar
saparilla. Our physician thought nothing but extirpa
tion could afford relief, but he advised the trial of your
Sarsaparilla as the last resort before cutting, and it
proved effectual. After takingyour remedy eight weeks
no symptom of the disease remains.”
Syphilis and Mercurial Disease.
New Orleans. 25th August, 1*59.
Dr. J. C. A TER: Sir, I cheerfully comply with tin* re
?uest of your agent, and report to you some of the effects
have realized with your Sarsaparilla.
I bav<* cured with it. in my practice, most of tho com
plaints for which it is recommended, and have found its
effects truly wonderful in the cure of Venereal and Mer
curial Disease. One of my patients had Syphilitic ulcers
in bis throat, which were consuming his palate and tho
top of his mouth. Your Sarsaparilla, steadily taken,
cured him in five weeks. Another was attacked by sec
ondary symptoms in his nose, and tiie ulceration had
eaten away a considerable part of if, so tlmt I Ulieve tho
disorder would soon reach his brain aud kill him. Rut it
yielded to my administration of your Sarsaparilla: tho
ulcers healed, and he is well again, not of course without
some disfiguration to his face. A woman who had been
treated for the same disorder by mercury wus suffering
from this poison in her bones. They had become so sen
sitive to the weather that on a damp day she suffered ex
cruciating pain in her joints and bones, She, t< o, was
cured entirely by your C-arsaparilla in a few weeks. I
know from its formula, which your agent gave me, that
this Preparation from your laboratory must ben great
remedy; consequently, these truly lenmikublo results
with it lmve not surprised me.

Dr. J. C. Ayer: Sir, I have been afflicted with a pain
ful chronic liheumutism for a long time, which baffled the
skill of physicians, ami stuck to mo in spite of all tlio
i umedies 1 could find, until I trietl your Sarsaparilla. One
bottle cured njo in two weeks, and restored my general
health so much that I am far better than before 1 was
attacked. 1 think it a wonderful medicine. J. HIE AM.
Jules Y. Getchell, of St. Louis, writes: “I have been
afflicted for years with an affectum af the. Liver, which
destroyed my health. I tried every thing, and every Ailing
failed to relievo me; and 1 have been a broken-down man
for some years from no other ranee than deraugaueut t-f
the. Liver. My beloved pastor, the ltev. Mr. Kspy, ach ised
me to try your Sarsaparilla, la-cause lie fald lie knew you,
and any thing you made was woi tli trying. Py the bless
ing of God it lias cured me, and lias so purified my Mood
as to make a new man of me. 1 feel young again. Iho

This is a remedy so universally known to surpass any
other for the cure of threat nml lung complaints, that it
is useless here to publish the evidet ee of its virtues, lip
unrivalled excellence for coughs and colds, and its truly
wonderful cures of pulmonary disease, have made it
known throughout the civilised nations of the earth.
Few are the communities, or even families, among them
who have not some personal experience of its effects —
some living trophy in their midst of its victory over the
subtle and dangerous disorders of the throat and lungs.
As all know the dreadful fatality of these disorders, and
as they know, too. the effects of this remedy, we need not
do more than to assure them that it has now all the vir
tues that it did have when making the cures which have
won so strongly upon the confidence of mankind.

The experience of thousands duilv proves that
no preparation of Iron can be compared with it.
Impurities of the blood, depression of vital ener
lty, pale and otlieiwise sickly complexion* indi
cate its necessity in almost every conceivable ease.
Innoxious in all maladies in which it has bean
tried, it lias proved absolutely curative in each
ot tlie following complaints, via:
In Debility, NHavocs Affections, Emaciation,
Dyspepsia. Constipation, Diaubikea. Dysentery,
Incipient Consumption, Scrofulous Tuberculosis,
Salt Rheum. Mismknstruation, Whites, Chloro
sis, Liver Complaints,Chronic Headaches, Rheu
matism, Intermittent I evers, i imples on the
Face, &c.
In cases of General Debility, whether the result
of acute disease, or of the continued diminution
of nervous and muscular energy from chronic
complaints, one trial of this restorative has prov
ed successful to an extent which no desciiption
no written attestions would render credible. In
valids so long bed ridden as to have become ter
gotten in ttieir own neighborhoods, have sudden
ly re-api eared in the busy world as if just return
ed from protracted travel in a distant land. Some
very signal instances of this kind are attested of
female sufferers, emaciated victims of apparent
marasmus, sanguineous exhaustion, critical chan
ges, and that complication of nervous and dya
peptic aversion to air and exercise for which the
physician lias no name.
In Nervous Affections of all kinds, and for rea
sons familiar to medical men, the operation of
this preparation of iron must necessarily be salu
tary, for, unlike the old oxides, it is vigorously
tonic,without being exciting and rverheating ;
and gently, regularly aperient, even in the most
obstinate eases of costiveness without ever being
a gastric purgative, or inflicting a disagreeable
It is this latter property, among other*, which

I i Dyspepsia, innumerable as arc its causes, a
single box of these Chalybeate Tills has often suf

attendent Costiv.ntss.
In unchecked Diarrhoea, even when advanced
to Dysentery, confirmed. iFinnciating, und appar
ently malignant, the effects have keen equally do
[ cisive and astonishing.
| In the local pains, loss of flesh and strength,
debilitating cough, and remittent hectic, which
I generally indicate Incipient Consumption, this
I temedy has allayed the alarm of friends and phy

In Scrofulous Tuberculosis, this medicated iron
lias had far more than the good effect 01 the most
cautiously balanced preparations of iodine, with

The attention of females cannot lie too confi
dently invited to tills remedy and restorative, in the
cases peculiarly affecting them.
In Rheumatism both chronic and inflammatory
—in tlies latter, however, more decidedly—it has
been invariably well reported, both as alleviating
pain and reducing the swellings and stiffness of
the joints and muscles.
In Intermittent revere it must necessarily be a
great remedy and cnerget' restorative, and its
progress in the new setth ments of the West, will
probably be one < f high renown and usefulness.
No remedy has ever been discovered in the
whole history of medicine, which exerts such
prompt, happy, and fully restorative effects.
Good appetite, complete digestion, rapid acquisi

active ami cheerful exei cise, mmediately follow
its use.
