Mr. and Mrs. Jackson Rice were

He has had some very exciting
experiences during his services

months in different hospitals, been
operated on three different times;
but spent much of the time at the
front, has been gassed' twice and
slightly wounded once. At one
j timefat the front when they were
i separated from the'ir supplies he
j went four days and nights without
food or water. He says that time
he' was "about all in. Once when
he was delivering messages from
one post, to another, as he was
making a trip'the .big shells were
dying and bursting all around him

not make it. seeing'a dug out, he
jumped into it, but found it
already oecupid by a number of
Huns, lie Kt)S he proceeded to
get out of there as quickly as lie
got in, but just. a he was making
his exit a big linn grabbed him
by the coat, but it fortunately was

Hold U. S. Insurance
To the relatives
so.Miers and snilora: .
Your relatives serving with the
colors will soon bo back in civil
life. For your protection and for
their own, they undoubtedly have
taken out insurance " with the
United States Government. You
should impress upon yojir relatives
in the service the vital importance
of-keeping their insurance with
the Government. Write to theui
without desjay or tell them per
sonafly, if you can that, they may
retain insurance with the United
States Government even after they
leave thcf military service.
The priviledge ef continuing
their Government insurance in a
valuable right given to soldiers
and sailors as part of the compen
sation for -their heroic and loyai.
services. If the soldier or. sailor
permits his insurance to lapse, he
loses that right and he will never
oeable to regain it. But if, ho
keepH up his present insurance
by the regular payment of the
monthly premiums he will be
able to change it later to a fctand-
ird Government policy without
medical examination. Meantime
lie can keep up -his present insur
ance at substantially (the same low
rate. The Government will write
ordinary life insurance, 20-pay-ni
nt life, endowment maturing at
age ()-', and oilier usual tonus of
insurance. This will be Govern
ment insurance at Government
Many men will come out of the
war physically iurpared and will,
therefore, be unable to obtain any
life insurance protection whatso
ever for themselves and their
families unlese they keep up their
present insurance with the United
States Government. Uncle Sam's
insurance may bo continued and
converted into standard- Govern
ment policies, regaidless of the
men's physical condition.
Impress theso things upon your
relatives in the service. Tell them
there is nothing safer or stronger
than Government insurance-. Tell
thetn to talk ' about this to their
commanding officers and to the in
surance officer' at their place of
duty before they leae the service.
Tell them to carry back with them
to civil life as an aid and an sset,
the continued insurance protection
of the protection of the United
States Government. Tell them
for your sake and, for their sake,
to lioid on to - Undo Sam's ii
