TOTALLY DESTROYED BY FIRE
Is what may be said of your home any time fire
comes without warning and cleans oat in a hurry
leaving you nothing but ashes, unless you are
protected by insurance.
If your home is worth $5,000 and is burned up
by fire without insurance you get nothing. If
you carry $5,000 insurance with the Farmers Mu
tual, for which you pay us only $37.50 and your
home burns you get $5,000. Which appeals to
your sound judgment ?
