Instant relief from the malady, at least for the remainder of this season, Is the guarantee with the prescription, thmigh some physicians may look upon tlie cure as being more deadly than the disease.

Never stili, never satisfied, it constantly seeks new methods, new appliances, new uses. A ceaseless reshaping of practices, readjustment of facilities. Not only [ias modern business required new forms of indemnity, but new manufacturing processes and new buildings of undreamed proportions have brought new fire hazards. STOCK FIRE INSURANCE has not only tfict the insurance requirements, but by research, engineering and laboratory tests has discounted the ne\M hazards to such an extent that its average cost has constantly declined for more than twenty years. Under the system of establishing fir? insurance rates, Stock Fire Insurance company engineers have surveyed practically every commercial building in the United States, whether insured or not, and have on file minute details of. construction, occupancy, protection,., exposure and other information relating to fire hazards. Stock Fire Insurance surveys buildings and their contents — studies neighborhood and community conditions — offers advice — makes recommendations — points out hazards — establishes facts by which risks are measured. To this end it maintains Underwriters' Laboratories, where thousands of materials and devices are tested for safety purposes, and, when approved, arc so In many other ways it contributes to XOJnmercial stability by providing standards of safety.
