FARMER SHOULD CARRY JNSURANCE (Continued from Page One) employs a man to blast stumps and that man in turn employes a helper and the helper from any cause what ever is killed or injured while doing the work, the farmer for whom he does the work becomes liable. It is the same with any work that is done for profit. If a hay baler, an ensilage cutter, a ditching machine comes on a farm to do work or if a painter is employed to paint the gutters on the barn roof or a carpenter is employed to build a hog shed, the farmer becomes liable in case the man doing the work does not carry compensation insurance. May Operate Own Machinery. However, a farmer may own his own threshing machine, his own ensilage cutter and perform all of the work with his own hired labor and for himself and h? becomes exempt from the application of the law. The thing for the farmer t do. Mr. Ry-nerson explained, is to require every thresherman or laborer of any kind who comes to the farm to do work to show hi? compensation credentials. In , case there is no insurance carried by ( any party the injured laborer will j likely collect four or five times the amount he wou'd have been paid had been carried. The workmen's compensation law is i i i . .... ; i tka ldro'c Rrn'mon ! ...v .... . explained, in that it is removing from the ccurts the vast number of com- mon law damage suits for injury. This feature is working a g-eat hardship on lawyers, it was explained, because it is taking awav from them ore of the most lucrative "features of the pro- , . .... - fession. W hereas, the attorney fee in ... .' a b'g damage suit frequently mount- ed to ? 1,000 and S1..;V. placed at $200 a statue. under the compensation law. The amount for which a farmer is liable in case of an accident to an employe which comes under the compensation law is often $4,520 or $5,-000. The only safe course for the farmer to pursue is to elect to come under the law, which is his privilege, take out insurance which generally does not cost more than $25 for the year and rest easy and let the insur- company pay the bill. When a farmer elects to come under the com- penation law he i automatical ex- empted from liablity under the com- mon law. Advises Pay for Work. Mr. Rvnerson states that in his j ' ! ! j ! and his business is coming into its proper place in respect to dignity and importance it is just that the farmer should assume his share of the bur dens. BIG SUM IS ASKED IN SUIT ON NOTE. A suit for $3,S00 on a note and- the appointment of a receiver has been filed in the circuit court by the Fow-lerton Bank vs. Naomi L. Deeren, the Fletcher Joint Land Bank, and the Delaware Trust company. Acording to the plaintiff's charges, Naomi Deeren gave them a note for $2,808.73, and gave a mortgage on ! property to secure it. The other two ; defendants own senior mortgages, according to the complaint, and they are made defendants to bring their claims against the property. The property is insufficient to meet all demands against it, it is said, and the appoint- I ment of a receiver is asked.
