The Bavarian Beer

Made by the Highland Brewing Company,

Is a superior thick-niash food beer, by expcrst pronounced equal to imported, of which
Wurzhurgor Hofhrau is the l)est known. No other brewery in M.-ussachusetts has the facilities
for making this brew.

Our Export and Pilsner

Are light, infusion l)ecrs that stand in the front rank <>f AniL-riian Imagers. There can In; no
better beer. The Highland beer is made on the highest point in Springfield, and is of the
same grade.

Why it is Best:

Because, l — It is made from ])rimc malt and hops and purest water.

Because, 2 — It is made under the direction of skilled practical brewers.

Because, 3 — It is a matured beer, ripened properly by age, for the Highland Hrewcry
has brewing capacity and the storage cajiacity to do this.

Therefore Order It.

but a meetinj; with .Mr. Kansehousen is to converge with a
quiet, courteous f^entlciiian whose earnest manner ii the ex-
pression of strict integrity. In the iii.iny years he has l<ecn
connected with the company no complaint has arisen of hi«
prnmisin;; more, to obtain business, than his company !;»■>'>>>■'
tccil to fulfil.

Nlr. Kansehousen is an e.\pert in the voluminous intricarit s
of life insurance, the merits and demerits of any |)olicy l)ci.i-
apparent to the least informed, under his exposition. I In
policy chiefly promulgated by his company is the eiuliiwiiu mi
lorm which, accordintj to the law of this state, liccomcs 11 >.i
forfeitable alter two annual premiums have been paid. A iii.ia
at the age of tweuty-ci^;llI takiim out a$i,ix«.i, twenty paymc ,1.
policy endowment age si.\ty, would pay an aiiiiiial premium 1
$34.90, and at the end of twenty years would have paid m
$698. .Should he then desire to surrender his policy f.
company would allow him $053.37, his insurance thus . :
him only $44.73 for the entire period. This, howevci. 1
no allowance lor the annual dividend paid. The cash dii ;
on this policy in 1894 was $379. In other words, at the ctic. 1
twenty years the amount returned, added to the > ash dividcinl-..
paid annually, would niore than cover what had been paid 1..
The insurance thus becomes absolutely Kt:il>-'<, the coinpai.y
payinji the beneficiary a bonus tor the privilege of insurin ;
him. Mr. Kansehousen would be pleased to explain to anyoi.c
contemplating the purchase of a policy, the advantages often I
by his company. It is a matter worthy of mention that tl
State Mutual has upon its books the names of more Massachii
setts policy holders than any other Massachusetts company
and has been in business fifty years, its conservative methods
of investing its funds being the keynote of its succcs.s.

Mr. Kansehousen served three years in the Second U.S. infantry, rck:iilais. enlisting in ift'-'.. and scrvinK
till 1869. In December of that year was elected second lieutenant of Company K, Second M. V. M. He wa»
also a member of the Pcabody Guards. Recently the captaincy of the new militia company was tendered
him, but the engrossing press of business caused him to decline the honor.

On the rolls of the Masonic and Odd Fellow memberships Mr. Kansehousen's name has long been inicribed.
He is a member of Springfield Commandery, Knights Templar and of Hampden lodge of (Wd Fellows."

Mr. Kansehousen's office is in Chicopee Bank building, corner Court Square.

THE GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC.



T-*HK Nalional Association oi federal Veterans
of the rebellion, dates from March, 1866. The
primarj" meeting being held in Springfield, 111.
The man who conceived the }»r^"d idea of a brother-
hood of soldiers was Major Benjamin K. Steph-
enson of Illinois. With his tent mate. Chaplain
Riitledge oi his regiment, he often talked, in bivouac
and march, of the desirability of some fornt of associa-
tion that would pre.serve the friendships of .soldiers so
closely allied in the fellowship oi suffering, when they
were mustered out of service. The idea, with its
possibilities of good, so mastered them, that they
agreed that if spared they would together work out
some project. They met at the time and place above
mentioned, calling in conference prominent soldiers,
and drew up a ritual and decided on the name. The
first post was organized at Decatur, April 6, by
Major Stephenson, who had been made commander of
the department of Illinois.

The purposes of the Grand .Army are well-voiced
in the Declaration of Principles in the constitution,
originally written by .Adjutant General Robert M.
Woods, and slightly amended at subsequent conven-
tions.
