We write Insurance ia the BEST Companies. The HAIL SEASON, which is again approaching, reminds us of the disastrous year of 1915, when more, than 125,000.00 was paid out in HAIL losses to our customers. A small premium protected many farmers who could not afford to stand the loss of a crop which would have been disastrous to them in a financial way. We have no assurance what the year 1916 will bring to us but it has been demonstrated a number of times, that the farmer with a promising crop cannot afford to carry his own risk. We are writing for the same Old Line Companies that gave such universal satisfaction last year, making adjustments promptly and paying their losses dollar for dollar.

THE CITIZENS STATE BANK will devote all the time necessary throughout the hail season in giving prompt and efficient service in looking after the interests of their customers Should the present splendid prospects continue it will behoove every farmer in the County to spend a small amount in protecting his growing crop. The rate for Ellis County this year will -be eight per cent in all Old Line Companies, and from the present indications we expect one of the best Hail Writing Seasons we have ever had. We shall be pleased to write your policy and will appreciate the business. Trusting that Ellis County wi'll pour forth one of its most bounteous wheat crops and that we may have the privilege of protecting same for you with a Hail Policy in one of gur Companies, we are Very truly yours, CITIZENS STATE BANK.
