- Il NE VER A FAILÜRI. The Bed Kiver Valley of Minnesota and North Dakota bas never had a failure of crops. It produced 30,000,000 busliels of wheat besides other cereals in 1890. Farms can be had on the . erop plan, or long time cash payments. It is not an uucommon thing to pay f or a farm from the proceeds of one erop. It has all of the advantages of an old country in the shape of school, church, rnarket, postal &railway facilities, and all the chances of a new country in the way of cheap lands, rich soil, and increase in values. It is one of the most fertile and promising regions in America not yet fully occupied. In the rush to the far west, however, this rich valley bas been over-lóoked. It has room for a millioii more people. Write to F. I. WHITNEY, St. Paul, Minn., for particulars. Pablications sent free.

M1LLEN, WHO AS SPECIAL AGENT FOR THE NATIONAL LIFE MUEl CO, DE8IIÍGS TO SAY That Tiif National Life Insuranc Company was incorporated by the Legislature of Vermom in 1848. lts existence practically covers the whole history of Life Insurance in America, as the oldest company wrote its first policy in 183. Hon. Henry Clay, of Kentucky; Hon. Amos Abbott, of Massachusetts; Hon. Alex. Ramsey, of Penrsylvania were among the incorporators. That during the forty years of its successful experience, it has passed through the cholera epidemie of iS54,the financial panies of 1857 and 1873, as well a the ordeal of the Civil War. These were eriods when corporations and individuals were tried to their utmost capacity. On every side were failures, large and small, but the National came out with a record of solid proiperity, and not a scar to mark the greatest financia! disturbances ever known in this country, lts policy contracts, therefore possess all the security and permanence that stability and successful experienee can guarantee. That it wrote in Michigan during the year 1888 74.000, and during the year 1889 $752,000, which was the largest per cent. of gains during said year by any eimpany in Michigan. No company writes a more satisfactory policy, wriling in the face of each policy three guarantees: First. - A paid up policy. Second. - A cash surtender for each year after the thirn. TmRD. - An extended insurance wbicb provides for all emergencies that may overtake anyone between youth and oíd age.
