Every person who insures in this company becomes a member of it with All the privileges incident to any corporation and is immediately interested in its general Extension and prosperous condition. The assured at the time of making his application for insurance is required to give his promissory obligation called the Premium note without interest the amount of which is determined by the sum insured and the Hazard of the risk on which note he pays five per cent in Advance. No further payment is required unless losses should occur during the period six Yea by this being the term for which policies arc issued at which times assessments Are made equitably upon All the notes sufficient to cover such losses. To insure a building of the Best class of risks to the amount of of .1,000, the assured would give his note for $40, five per cent of which paid in Advance $2, and �1 for the policy would make Only $3 for his first payment. As the policy runs for six years much personal trouble and anxiety Are saved to the assured in not being required to make annual renewals of the insurance. The company insure Tico thirds of the estimated value of buildings and 07ic-.a Quot of personal property. Mutual insurance has been found by Long experience in Many parts of the United states to be Thesa Esi and a leap ii method whether prosperous or Adverse Fortune attends its operations. Risks which in Stock companies have Cost from 90 to 100 cents on each Hundred dollars insured have Cost in Mutual companies but from 15 to 20 cents on the same amount insured and at this rate for several years in succession. This method of insurance is Well adapted to the Peculiar situation and interests of the slate of Indiana As great dispersion of the risks and insurances can readily be obtained and consequently less liability to Large losses. Every insurer is therefore invited to give this subject mature consideration and thus ascertain the benefits which May to secured by the general operations of this company throughout the state.

If Oong. Hanover College Jan. 27, 1837. The undersigned having examined the series of school books by Lyman cola. M., cheerfully concur in Many of the flattering recommendations of these works.

P. Durbin president of Dickinson College. It. St. Mary s College feb. 19, 1835. At the request of the president of St. Mary s col Ege 1 have cursorily examined the series of elementary school books published by Liman Cobb and have no hesitation in saying that they May to safely employed in the teach inn of children and thai in Many respects they Are preferable to the works of a similar kind in use in this Section of the country. I regard Liman Cobb s edition of Walker s school dictionary As Superior to any other edition in the same form which has come under my observation. His spelling Book and lessons in Reading appear to me deserving of approbation. Two of the Moat experienced teachers of arithmetic in this institution having examined Lyman Cobb s explanatory arithmetic nos. 1 and 2, have expressed the opinion that it is Superior to the greater number of systems of arithmetic used in schools in this part of the country. John m Caffrey vice Prest. Of it. St. Mary s College. From a cursory examination of the above %vork8, i am convinced of their Merit As expressed above. H. R. Butler. President of it. St Mary s College. I have examined several of the series of school books by Lyman Cobb and believe them to be in general Well calculated to interest and developed the Youthful mind. His arithmetic ave in my opinion far Superior to those in general use until recently in this Section of the country. In his explanatory arithmetic As is the Case with the Kindred works of Colburn and Emerson the understanding of the learner is addressed and the ground rules of the science Are rendered so easy by the simple examples and Fani liar explanations that he cannot fail to comprehend them. By the inductive system of teaching the learner is made acquainted with rules and applies them to particular cases far More readily than when brought before his mind in the common didactic form. From the great improvements which have been made within a few years in the manner of presenting the elementary principles to the Youthful mind we May reasonably expect a corresponding improvement in every department of education. I therefore Hope that works like the a Bove mentioned will soon take the place of those in which the Pupil wrought mechanically rather than intellectually. Jacobs a.

From the great reputation which this Medicine has acquired sundry persons Are putting out an article purporting to be Bloodgood s elixir of health to which the certificates Given my elixir have been attached. That the Public May not be deceived on this subject i feel Bilund to give the following information leaving the Public to judge whether when health and life Are at stake it is Safe to venture the use of an article which is got up under such circumstances. The Medicine which has been known for the last six years by the name of or. Bloodgood s elixir of health is a Medicine of my own devising to which i gave the above name. No Medicine was Ever bet re known by that name nor was this Medicine known by any other name it being original with me manufactured by no other person and sold Only by myself or my agents my name As sole proprietor accompanying every bottle. The composition of this Medicine is known Only to myself and it being a vegetable compound it is impossible to Analyse it so As to detect its composition. The Public Are therefore informed that there is no genuine Bloodgood s elixir of health except that which is prepared by wishing the genuine article will be particular to see that the directions on the bottle Are signed with my written signature without which none is genuine. Disclaimer. The undersigned having received great Benefit from h. Eastman s elixir of health at that time under the name of Bloodgood s elixir of health were induced for the Benefit of the afflicted to give certificates of its effects for publication. We were then informed and have no reason yet to doubt the fact that the preparation originated with or. Eastman and was known to no other the name he gave it Bloodgood s elixir being merely to distinguish it from other preparations. What then was our Surprise to learn that the elixir had been counterfeited and the spurious article put Forth to the world with our names a endorsers of its Virtues. It is due to ourselves and to the Public to say that we know nothing of the merits of any such imitation. We have used and highly approved the elixir prepared by h. Eastman but when our names Are attached to the preparations of any other it is a base and unauthorized forgery and As such we denounce it to the Public. .1. R. Lippitt r. D. Searl j. Williams we.
