The company will oper ate under the stringent insurance laws of the state, which will guar antee every policy holder tho same protection as any other insurance company incorporated under the stip ulated premium plan. Tho company's present capital and surplus is J15.000, and it Is the inten tion of the directors to increase tho capital to $100,000 as soon as possible and branch out into other states. Every NeKrouiln .Kansas City,, as well as the state ot Missouri, who is of insurable age and can qualify phy sically ought to take a policy with this company. -Don't wait for a agent to call on you, but write or phone the office and one of the com pany's representatives will gladly call on you and explain the different fea tures ot their policies.
