The Baptist Sunday school excur sion went to Lava Hot Springs Thursday. This is a time when farmers need life insurance, but the premium is hard to get at this time of the year. Many times agents travel the country and take notes due in the fall for the premium and many times the farmer cannot meet the note. Beebe has a credit system where no notes are given and no in terest charged. For instance, sup pose a man aged thirty-five wants $16,000 of life insurance and has not the money now and does not want to give a note or pay any in terest here is what Beebe will do: Suppose the farmer figures that in 100 days he can pay his premium. He pays Beebe $28.28 on a $10,000 policy for 100 days. At the end of the 100 days if he does not want to pay the annual premium he pays $94.20 for 120 more days. Other ages and amounts in proportion. If 100 days is not enough he can take any number of days (not over 364) and pay cash in advance of $2.83 per 100 days or $ .0283 for each day per $1000. There is absolutely no excuse for any man to be without life insurance of these terms. Beebe does not tie you up in a note for if you don't want the insurance he does not want you to have it. After one gets a Beebe policy there is no excuse for lapsing it. Ray Crabtree, manager ' of the Beachy Shoe, company, returned Wednesday evening from a trip to Salt Lake.
