Modern Woodmen of America
We have been presented with a handsome copy of the special edition of the Modern Woodman, the official organ of the Modern Woodmen of America, a fraternal insurance society. There were 156,000 copies of this edition printed, and it contains a full page half-tone cut of the head officers and delegates to the last Head Camp at Omaha. Fraternal insurance is becoming very popular with the people and the M. W. A. is fast taking the lead amongst these fraternities. Over
25,000 new members joined this order in 1892 and already 6,000 have joined in 1893. The highest average cost per year of carrying $1,000 insurance has only been $4.95, the cheapest on record. This order is financially sound and is under excellent management and embraces in its membership 80,000 of the brainy working men iof the Great Northwest. It is doing an immense amount of good and distributes monthly about $75,000. If you want to join this order you can
receive full information from the clerk, M. T. Lamey, or members of the camp.
