fact. We shall indulge in no spread-eagleism-no bombast,
but give you a chonicle of money-saving facts.
WE HAVE BARGAINS AT ALL TIMES !
But none such as these.
Read the list to the end, cut out from the ad. the items
that interest you, and compare the printed statement with
the actual merchandise offered. MONEY BACK on every
dollars worth that you purchase if not as represented and
satisfactory.

you compare the prices with the intrinsic worth of the Goods.

The Directors of The Anderson Mutual
Fire and Life Insurance Company h> ld their
annual meeting at the office of Bonham
cfc Watkins on yesterday. The applications
and policies have been printed and the
Company will begin business next Mon
day. The object nf the Company is to give
to the people of Anderson County especi
ally both life and fire insurance at actual
cost. Every dollar paid into the Company
remains at home and goec- to improve our
own County. Probably more than ?25,
000 is paid by the people of this County
alone annually for fire insurance, and we
should judge that even a larger amount is
paid for life insurance. This money goes
principally to build up northern cities,
probably not one fifth of it coming back to
us in payment of losses. If kept at home
there would be a sufficient amount to build
a fair sized cotton mill each year. This
company, while conducted on the mutual
plan, is organized on the strictest business
principles and the policy holders are amply
protected in case of death or loss. The
names of the officers and directors are a
sufficient guarantee that the business will
be conducted in a safe and economical
manner. Tue officers are J. R. Vandiver,
President; J. J. Fretwell, vice-President;
H. H Watkins, Secretary and Treasurer.
The following comprise the- Board of Di
rectors : W. G WatBon, John M.Glenn,
J J. Baker. R B. A. Robinson, J. G.
Duckworth, B. C. Martin, A.P. Hubbard,
J. J. Major and R S. Hill.
