At first no disease is apparently
more harmless than dropsy a little
swe-ling of the eyelids, hands, feet,
ankles or abdomen. Finally there is
great shortness of breath, cough,
faint spells, sometimes nausea and
vomiting, even bursting of the limbs
and a lingering and wretched death if
the dropsy is not removed.

General Agent at Bismarck
The annual report of the Montana
Life 'Insurance Company, of Helena,
at the close of business December 31,
11)1 shows a marvelous record of
progress and increase in every
branch of the Company's business,
especially in view of the fact that the
company has actually transacted bus­
iness for an approximate period of
only six years.
Among the items of special inter­
est disclosed by the report is the
statement that at the close of the
year insurance in force amounted to
2.001 $16,014.759, of which $14,500,000 is
1.00: Montana business, which credits this'
state as any other life insurance com­
pany transacting business therein.
Another startling feature is the ex­
traordinary volume of igsued and
pald-for new business during the year
1916, amounting to the grand total of
$6,103,890.00 of which $5,086,500.00
was placed on the lifes of citizens of
In view of the fact that the most
important factor in the progress of
a life insurance company is not the
business written, but the annual in­
crease in business, the record in this
instance, giving an increase of $4,
535^890.00, shows a greater propor­
tionate gain than any other institu­
tion of like character.
The total assets of the company on
December 31st, 1910. was $421,000.00,
while on December 31, 1916, they had
increased to $1,51'9,012.32.

Perhaps the most remarkable feat­
ure of the annual statement shows
a net surplus of 1350,78^.73 in excess
of all liabilities, which, including the
capital stock, establishes a surplus
for the protection of policyholders, in
excess of the legal reserve, of $600,

part of North Dakota and the eastern
