At any time In the fu ture It may be reconverted: that Is, transformed from so much paid-up In surance back Into tho original dividend, when It may bo withdrawn or otherwise disposed of according to tho will or necessity of tho owner.

Protection was the original object ho had In view when he secured tho policy, and through re versionary addition's the amount of It Is augmented, tho rate Increasing with time through tho operation of compound In terest. An actual experience will graphically illustrate the advantages: In 1S37 Gen eral Stewart L. Woodford of New York, who subsequently became nn Interna tional figure ns a lawyer and diplomat, secured a policy for $3,000 In an excellent company, on which ho paid an annual premium of Jot. St. He eventually carried a largo line of life Insurance In various companies, but wo will confine our at tention to thin singlo contract. On this ho paid fifty-six premiums, aggregating $3,071.04. With the exception of $75 (the reversionary value of which was $2."i7.M) used for extra premium during the civil war, 1SS2 to 1SC7, not a dollar of the ac cumulating ' dividends was withdrawn. Deducting tho (.75 extra premium paid out of tho dividend fund, the total net premiums paid amounted to $2,996.04. At the tlmo of his death, which occurred several months ago, tho reversionary addition which had been bought by the undrawn dividends aggregated $3,163, or $172.06 more than tho total premiums 'he had paid. Ills beneficiaries received on that single contract of $3,000 tho sum of $0,169. General Woodford also carried an other $3,000 po'ley In the same company, which cost him total premiums of $3,223.71, the dividend additions on which were worth J3.5G2, His original $6,000 of life Insurance had grown to $12,531 at the time of his death. wise.

Michigan has created a state Insurance fund for the protection of the stato In stitutions. It begins with $100,000 appro priated by the legislature, to which an nual additions will be made from tho general fund of the state until a fund of $1,000,000 has been accumulated. A proclamation has been Issued by Governor Dunne of Illinois, designating October 9 as state fire prevention dav, and recommending that on that data fire drills be held In the schools, fac te rlcs and public Institutions of the state and that special attention be given to ull means of preventing fires. According to local insurance men, TrlnhA AlhArt nf Mnnnrn who m nnw in this country, and expects lo visit tho Big Horn mountains In search of bear, is said to carry about the largest amount of life insurance of any man in tne worm. Tne policies are said to aggregate more than $5,000,000. General Agent Johnston of the Gcrmanta Lilfe, who lias been attending the annual Insurance Companies Now Conserving Human Life There Is a kind of conservation spring ing up, reports the Wall Street Journal, which Is paying big returns to Its promo tors. Somehow or other the life Insur nnco companies have begun to realize that the family Is tho field upon which to work In husbanding their resources. Tho grent enemy of prosperous Insur nnco Is HI health. Most Illnesses can be handled In the family, and, It promptly attended to can be prevented by ordinary means, such as a compe tent nurse could apply, or a singlo visit' of a doctor dispose of. That has led 1 the Metropolitan Life Insurance com- ' pany of Now York to attach n nurse service to Its local agencies In various parts of tho country. The bond . be tween tho agency and the family Is tho visit monthly of the collector of prem iums, who not only fills out n blank on tho family's health, but observes the sanitary conditions of the premises, mnklng a fairly comprehensive report of the health of tho family. It Is easy to see how comprehensive this service may become In Its Influence upon tho health of tho community. The promotion of better conditions in the neighborhood through committees of pol icy holders has probably the vastest pos sibilities of any step which hna recently been taken In the direction of collective warfare. Thanks aro due to such men as Prof. Irving Fisher and Prof. J. Peaso Norton, who, together with others, aeveral years ago Inaugurated this cam paign to eliminate economic waste by at tention to sound sanitary policies. The great cause of poverty la not financial panics, not Industrial and commercial de pressions, nor even tho loss of millions In bad crops. The worst foe to human wel fare Is still preventable sickness, and the Insurance program which stlkes at this fundamental source of misery Is a mis sionary Indeed. . .

Mayor Doctor Intimated that the dis position of the charges against Chief John McKale was taken up and that it would finally be decided In a day or two. It Is thought that tho charges will be dropped with the understanding that new rules will be Introduced at once. Mayor Doctor stated that the rules of the Omaha flro department would be adapted to the needs of South Omaha and adopted by the board without delay. The mayor stated that he was determined to bring the discipline of the department up from Its present status. The appointment of the men necessary to make up the double shift brings to a close one of the long-expected actions of the board. That there will be soreness goes without saying, by reason of the fact that seventy men will be disap pointed by their failure to land. The dis position of the vacant places were made with an eye to the different nationalities of the city. Captain John Kubat, who was tried for Inefficiency when the new board was first elected, Is promoted to his former place at the head of No. 3 company, after having been reduced for several months.

Do will hereafter take up the city warrants which tho banks have taken up and charged the city 6 per cent Interest for so doing. The 6 per cent Interest Instuad of going to the banks will go to the .city tnd be paid Into the Interest and sinking fund. The move means a saving of about ll.SO between the months of August and January of each year, when the banks take up the city warrants on a premium Treasurer Mprttn some time ago placed 1100,000 at 4 per cent Interest Instead of the old 2 per cent drawn by the city The money so placed was taken from funds not liable to be drawn upon within the year. There la still more of the pub lic improvement money drawing 2 per cent, but the city treasurer cannot put It out at 4 per cent because of the fact that the money Is available for use nnd much of It will be needed within the next few months. The banks will not pay 4 per cent under a year's deposit of the funds, it Is said. , The money, however, will be used by tho city to take up warrants to the ex tent of about $a,000 within the time be tween now and January 1. This will mean that the treasurer will be able to pour something like an extra 11,000 Into the Irtcrest and sinking fund with an eye to the reduction of the city's bonded In debtedness. l'ollrrvroinnn rvanieri.

The following was the report submitted to tho board by Mayor Doctor In the matter of appoint ing a policewoman. Tho mayor askod -that It be given publicity: After careful consideration, having In mind the future welfare of tho boys and girls of our city, I havo come to the conclusion that the appointment of n woman to the police department of this city, whoso principal duties will bo that of censor of places of public amusement, vis., theaters, public dances, parks, etc, will rrsult In much good. It Is a well established fact that only a very small percentage of the average boys and girls aro naturally bad. The great majorltv of those who stray from tho path of honor are Induced to do so by others who havo fallen before and not through thrlr own deslro to be bad, and while I bellev.i the conduct of the boys and girls of this city will compnre favorably with that of any other city, yet, If by the appolnt- iiicni uerein reicrrt-ti 10, me erring boys and glrla can bo Induced to lead moral, upright lives, thereby becoming useful members of socletv. the exDenii lmiiini to this appointment will bo more than uniiucu.

This Is by far the largest aggregate ship ment or reedcr stock ever sent out of the local yards and Superintendent Wal ters was elated over tho fact that the yards were cleaned up last night ready tor tne expected incoming shipments from outside. According to well-informed cattle men the run this year Is 10 per cent under the corresponding date of one year ago. Last year's cattle shipments to the local mar ket were tho lightest In ten years, and it Is feared that this year will 'fall be low the preceding twelvemonth. Cnrpriiter Injured. J. C.
