ence in Columbus, Ohio, October 12

for the uplift and betterment of the
race. The Columbus meeting is the
direct result of the Indian Congress
held at Muskogee last fall, at which
prominent Redmen from all parts of
the country were in attendance.
One of the main purposes of this
year's meeting is to demonstrate to
the American people that the Indian
has shown wonderful development
within the last score of years.
Senators Owen of Oklahoma and
Curtis of Kansas and Representative
Carter of Oklahpma, all of Indian
parentage are Joining in the call for

POWER FOR (iOOD
That the officials under a com-
mission form of government are a
power for good along lines when
they apply themselves has been man-
ifested in the city of Des Moines,
where an iron clad grocery trust or
combine existed. In order to com-
bat the high cost of living the city
officials turned the city hall lawn
over to the vegetable and farm pro-
duce venders. Nearly half a hun-
dred hucksters were lined up on the
plot and the rush of consumers ivho
had tired of grocery combine prices
began at six in the morning and by
eight all the farmers had sold out.
New potatoes were bought at 45c
a peck of $1.75 a bushel wheru
j formerly the price had been three
j dollars a bushel. Apples sold for ten
| and twelve cents a peck. Cucumbers
| went three for ten cents when the
grocery trust charged ten centu
This was the opening of a perman-
ent market price t0 combat the hfgfi
cost of living, and thousands of peo-
ple made such a rush for products
.that the police had to be called to
prevent fights between the shoppers.
Rev. A. J. Henson of Star was
here Sunday and Monday attending
the Fifth Sunday Meeting of the
Parson's Poem A Gem.

Northwestern National Life Insurance Co.
|^HAT rate of interest are you willing to pay, not to borrow
enough money to take care of your family after you die,
hut to buy it outright, so that it will be theirs forever,
just as though you had put it in the bank for them?
ou probably pay 5 per cent or more just to borrow, but
avery strong Life Insurance Institution will sell you a fund
? payable in cash to your widow or children, and vou never pay
anything for it but the interest and a mighty low rate at that:
At the age of 2f, 1S.jper cent
At the age of 3l 2 per cent
At the age of 35 21-2 percent
At the age of 88 2 3-4 percent
At the age of 43 s per t.(m
At the age of 47 ;j]-2 percent
At the age of 50 4 per cent
When you buy Life Insurance, all you pay is,the interest
the company puts up the principal. When you buy other
property you must pay both principal and interest.
