BENEFITS OF INSURANCE Treasury Department Will Make Ample Provisions To the officers and enlisted men and womenof the Army and Navy of the United States and their relatives: The Secretary of the Treasury through the Bureau of War Risk Insurance, has been charged with the administration of the War Insurance Law enacted by the Congress as a measure of justice to the men and women who have been called togive their lives, if need be, in the service of jrtbeir country. I wish to acquaint you with the benefits and privileges which your Government has placed at your disposal. It is essentiaf that' you and your families at - home should know of your and cise the right, thev must coso before the 12th day of February 1918. The cost ranees irom (5 cents monthly, at the age of 2, to $1.20 monthly, at the age of 51 for each if 1,000 of insurance. This is a smallcbarge on a man's pay small in proportion to the benefits it may bring. The pre miums will be deducted from his pay, if he desires, thus eliminat ing trouble on hs part. To provide adequate .protection until February 'l2, 1918, during the period when the soldiers and sailors are learning the details of this law, the Government auto matically insures each man and woman commissioned or enlisted in the military service of the United States. It pays the man $25 a month during total perma nent disability; if be dies within 20 years, it pays the rest of 240 monthly installments of $25 each to his wife, child, or widowed mother. I desire to call the provisions' of this just and generous law to "Artesian Cream Flour" Flour, made right here in our city, is now a reality. After a number of weeks delay, due to parts of the mill not arriving as per contract, all was in readiness this week, and first grade fl ur was placed on the market to-day. This new enterprise is a big boost to Meade, and to all Meade county as well. You can liuv Artesian Cream Flour from ar. v grocer in Meade, and the miller's guarantee of satisfaction or your money back, is behind each sack you buy. No better flour can be milled. To insure its arrival at vour home in perfect condition, it is sacked in Saxolin, paper-lined cotton sanitary sacks. The first sack is all you need be in vited to buy, after that you'll buy only, "Artesian Cream" their rights under this law in or the attention ot our officers and der that full advantage may be;enilste(lnieiland womenso that taken of them. , they may not be deprived of their i rignis inrougn lacKor knowledge r ull information may be obtain ed from the Bureau of War Risk Insurance of the Treasury De partment, Washington D. C. 1 earnestly urge that the officers To care for the wife acd child ren of the enlisted men during his service, the War Insurance Law him to contribute up to one half of his pay for their support. The Government, on application, will generously add to this an al lowance of from $5 to $50 a month according to the size of the fam ily. Moreover, if the enlisted man will make some furthe" pro , vision himself for a dependent parent, brother, sister, or grand child, they may be included in . the Government allowance, vlf, as the result of injuries in i cjurred or disease contracted in ..Ve line -of dutj, anjofficer or en listed ndanor any' Army or Navy nurse should be disabled, pro vision is made for compensation of from $30 to $100 a month to him, ad should he die, compen sation of from $20 to $75 a month will be paid to bis wife, his child or his widowed mother. In order, however, fully to pro tect each person and family, Congress has made it possible for every soldier, sailor, and nurse to obtain life and total dis ability insurance. This insur ance applies to injuries received while he or she is in the service or after he or sh has left it. Exposure to thee.tra dangers of war makes the cost of life in surance in private life insurance companies prohibitive. It was therefore, a plain duty and obli gation for the Government to assume the risk of insuring hun dreds of thousands of our sold iers who are makingthe suprerre sacrifice. Under this law, every soldier, and sailor, and nurse, commissioned and enlisted, ari of any age, has the right, be tween now and February 12, 1'MS' ,Kp take out life and total-disabi:- j ity insurance up to $10,000 at j very low cost, with the Govern-1 ment without medical examin'l ation. This right is purely op tional. The soldiers and ailor are hot compelled to take insur ance, but if they desire to exer- of the Army and Navy give to the men under their command all possible aid in helping them to understand fully the benefits that this insurance may bring to their families and the small cost at which it may be obtained. X his is tne greatest measure of protection ever offered to its fighting forces by any nation in the history of the world. It is not charity; it is simply justice to the enlisted men and women and to their !oved ones at home, and each and every one of them should promptly take the bene fits of this great law. , W. G.
