To Our Pollcy Holders.
Tbe limit for paymenl of asscssments
for tbc recent losscs in our home insur
ance associalion expired on Deccmber
2:trd. All but a few proraptly made re
turns and only two of the sevcral hun?
dred have drawu out, after flrst paying
theassessment It has been nearly two
years siuce tbere waa an asscssment
levied, scveral small tircs in the meantime
being scttlcd for by tbc Assocutlon from
its own funds. By so doiog there was a
saving of about twenty-five dollars each
time to its members which would have
occurred on account of postage andsla
tloncry: ln tbe recent assessment
were bunched losses aggrcgating eight
hundred dollars, some of which had been
paid from the personal funds of the man
ager to save cxtra asscssments and con
srquent expeuse to policy holders as
notcd. Two of tbc f.res being partial
buruiugs, bave not as yet been appraised
because tbe associalion Is busy having
these replaced and repaired, and it is not
possible to estimate cost until (inished;
but the preseut assessment will cover all
and lcave a small surplus, wbichbelongs
to tbe policy holders and will be used to
pay minor losses should they occur. In
January of each year the laws of Vlr
ginia rcijuire a sworn statement to be
published of tbecondltion of all such as
sociations and all moneys received or
paid out by them. Tbis will bedone In
a week or so by our association, and then
policy holders can scewbat has been col
lectcd and bow applied.
The association has over two hundred
thousand dollars ln live insurance, but
when assessingto cover a loss it is necea
aary to allow for some few defaulters,
aud then to add somethiug for postage,
etc Noltber tbe Association nor any of
its ofttcers derivc one cent from asseas
ments. The whole is devoted to the pay?
ing of losses and legitimate expenses con
nected tberewitb. Some pcrsons have
fallen into error because of their neglect
of decimals in computing tbe amounts
ralsed from asscssments. For instance:
40 cents on each $100 of $200,000 insur?
ance would raise $800, not $8,000, as we
learn some bave computed it.
Here are several rcasons why such in?
surance as ours is tbe bcat:
1. Insurance at actnal cost.
i. Economical and experienced raau
a. Easiest possible terma of payment.
4. Absolutely safe.
5. Business conuned to choice risks;
no general business, with its moral haz
ard of burning to get insurance.
6. YVbere other compauies divide pro
fits araong their oineera we glve our in
sured the benetit of such. Any surplus
isused todefray losses and no assessment
levied. Thus the policy holder is allowed
to keep the money which he could other
wise be called upon to pay.
Tbis is clean and sound business.

lot waa taken and counted lt was found
that the honor had been bestowed upon
Mias Fannie Chase, of Chase's Wharf.
When it was made known that Miss
Chase had been elected, she was re

once named Mr. Paul C. Palmer. Queen
Fannie waa then escorted to the throne,
which had beeu erected upon the stage
and decorated with cedar and holly, by
her Mluister and the crown placed upon
her hcad. Then followed the coronation
address by Mr. William B. Sanders,
which was all that could have been de
sired. The remalnder of the evening

(irantl Masttr of Masons Wright,
of Virginia, has appointed Dr. II. W.

Bauman for No. 10; R. A. Fitzhugh
for No. 11; and Capt. S. J. Quinn

Without Sense of Snicll.
Wm. C. Fitzhugh is the genial
proprietor of the Iloss Honse, at Ur
banna, Va., and while he baa long
catered to the ijreat satisfaction of
the traveling pnblic, this boniface has
from infancy been bereft of one of the
senses which it would be thonght
was C88ential in keeping, as he has
done, a first-class hostelry. He has
never kuown what it is to have the
sense of smell. Even hartsborn,
which is one of the strongest odors,
produees no sensation to him when
sniffed into the noetril by such a
draught as would floor an ordinary
Mr. Fitzhugh catne into the world
with a severe cold,and for a time his
life- was despaired of. Shortly after
ward he fell across a bucket, his
nose striking on the rim and frac
turing the bridge. To these reasons
he ascribes his lack of olfactory
powers. The affection goes so far as
to deprive him, in a measure, of the
sense of taste. Flavors and mild ex
tracts are indistinguishable to him;
for instance, hecannot recognize any
flavor in ice cream, though he is
very found of this delicacy, enjoying
it for itssweetness.
One would think that life was
hardly endurable wheu deprived of
all the sweetest odors the Creatorhas
given us, but Mr. Fitzhugh feels
that his afTliction is not so much of
an one after all when he sees the
town so suiffiing by, and between
breatha mutter "fish ~f-ac-t{p)ry!"
