To Suie a building of the Best class of risks to the amount of a thousand dollars the assured would give his note for $40, five per cent of which paid in Advance $2, and one Dollar for the policy would make Only three dollars for his first payment. As the policy runs for six years much personal trouble and Audi Ely Are saved to the As suied in not being required to make annual of the insurance. The company insure two ii if of the estimated value of buildings and one half of personal property.

At this rate risks which Cost but 5 15 j cents on each 100 Dol the a suied in this company will at All times have the Benefit of the Good Foit nne which May attend its operations As the a lots Are assessed Only in proportion to losses and incidental expenses and it is As fair to presume thai the company will meet with compare Lively few losses As that it will be rendered insolvent by extensive losses which would teduits the whole amount of its Premium notes to be expended for their payment. The contingency upon which the assess cents or Calls upon the Premium notes depend is As much in a or of the assured in this company As and terse to them. In proof of this the actual results in in by similar institutions can be adduced.
