This Office has been in existence for the last sixty years with entire satisfaction to the public.

An insurance in this Society is effected without a profit to stockholders, as each insurer is a

member or stockholder, and insurance is reduced to the actual cost of conducting an office. The

parties effecting an insurance make a deposit which belongs to them, and upon which they pay

their proportion of loss—which is the cost of Insurance. Should no loss take place there is no

expense attending the insurance, as the Deposit is returnable upon the expiration of the Policy,

with 4 per cent. interest.
