'Why does the Independent Order of Odd Fellows increase so rapidly, and prosper so well, wnen it Is not an Insurance company?" A past Grand Master gives the fol. lowing good reasons which may tend to throw some light on the subject: Let me say the Independent Order of Odd Fellows is an insurance com pany, one of the greatest, if not the greatest in ezistance today, and at the same time the cheapest one that I know of. it is a lire insurance company, a tornado insurance company, an acci dent insurance company; it Insures its members against loss on account of sickness, and against "distress" of every character, all in the same policy and that is not all, it insures orphan children a home and education. It Insures every member that obeys its laws and precepts, a good moral char acter, a sweet disposition and a happy nied it as long as men get sick, and die; as long as there is a human heart td comfort and a ' "tear to dry When all these things disappear and vanish away Odd Fellowship will have no mission to perform and will Barren- der its charter and go ont of existence Till then It will continue to prosper and accomplish its mission.

It insures its old and indl gent members against the chilly blast of misfortune, the pangs of hunger and the sufferings of want. It Insures evervone of its policy holders a de cent burial, and all for ten cents a week. It also pays what it agrees to and if that Is not enough It pays more and you don't have "to die to beat it" Its policies are all endowment policies payable In the life If needed; If not It Is payable to the widows and orphans. Now does It seem strange that it prospers P Do you know of any other company that gives so much Insurance for the money ? Then again, it has the largest cap! tal of any company In existence, and Its funds are more safely invested. Its capital consists of one million human frlenlships, the value of which Is so great that it cannot be computed in dollars and Cent: It la beyond -the comprehension of the human mind, This capital is all invested in "The Bonds" of love, and they are deposited In the Bank of "Truth", of which "Faith" is the President, and gweet, tender-hearted "Charity" the Cashier A great many "runs" have been made upon the Bank, but It has never been "wrecktd," indeed it has been dis covered that the more of its capital that it pays out the more there is left. The interest on these "Bonds" has never been in aeiauit; our income Is assured by a law of God, that, ''Bread cast uqon ine waters snail return a- gain." Ask the membership that lived in Chicago at the time of the great fire, if it Is not an insurance company; asK tne policy noiders in East St. Louis and New Baden what thev think of Odd Fellowship as a protection against cyclones and torna dos; ask the Odd Fellows ana their tn rt-t 1 1 i nJ tfonf 1 1 tf A In TnfinafnH Tin iaiuuit.0 timu jiiu iu vwuiioi'uu a a-1 and Galvestou, Texas, what Odd Fel lowship was to them In the days of their trouble; ask the widows and or phans of the yellow fever districts what they think of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows as a life insur ance company; ask the 2,35ft, 700 mem berg of our Order that have been relieved in times of distress what a protection Odd Fellowship has been to them; then ask the 356,720 widows of deceased brothers that have been assisted In times of need how they regard our Order as an Insurance com pany; visit our Orphans' Homes and count the hundreds of children we are feeding, clothing and educating1 and then tell me what you think of this Insurance. And then go to our Old Folks homes and see what we are doing for our aged brothers and sisters and you will will no longer wonder why we prosper. Examine the statement of the i'lot-ses' paid by our company nlnce 1830, 984, 543.55U 87, and then rem-mber the fact that we are paying out for the "relief of distress" more than 94,000. 000 every year, more than 10 00 every minute of the time and surely you will agree with me that we are a great "insurance company," one that In sures against all the storms of life. Not a cold-blooded corporation, buta warm hearted confederation. We live in an age of insurance, and insur ance companies are a blessing to the world; hut In no company that I know of can a man get as much Insurance for the money as be can by becoming an Odd Fellow.

LeondoUruwellof Glen wood town ship desires the republican nomination for the office of commissioner of the third district as appears from the an nouncement elsewhere In this Issue. Mr. 3ruwell Is one of the oldest and most respected residents of Phillips county having lived here about thirty years during which time he has ac quired considerable property. lie is man whose integrity is unquestioned, and possessed of good, business ability. He has always been a true republican and has been elected to township offi ces by safe majorities when the pre cinct was overwhelmingly populist in complexion which shows the esteem in which be Is held by his neighbors. The office of commissioner Is one that requires a roan of judgment and abl a. e-y . . i ny. air. uruwen seems to possess both talents. He will make a strong candidate. - Serious Accident. Al Stearns who works it the Mc Dowell and Albaugh livery barn was kicked by a horse which he was hitch ing up Monday night about 12 o'clock.

A late one Is art ald-to-matrluvmy bureau.. . The army, finding a couple that wishes to marry provides the furniture for a four-room flat for 910, a wedding suit for 91, and atrosseau for the bride, making It possible for the couple to marry for 912. In the hablonable . churches, where swell procession weddings are desired, tha bride is encouraged to spend this sum on a bridal coquet alone: her dress and wedding outfit costing so much that her fatbvr Is fin ancially hampered for years. Is not the Salvation army, plan tho better one Is It right that a family should be run In debt In order that a daugh ter may, have a wardrobe that a man with three times her father's Income could not afford?
