WOW MAKES PROMPT SETTLEMENT
Yesterday C E Wright, clerk of Walnut Camp, Woodmen of the World, presented to Mrs. Eliza Grunig a check for $1000, that being the amount of insurance carried in the order by her late husband, Fred Grunig.
Mr. Grunig died five weeks ago last Tuesday night and in view of the fact that the proofs of death were not forwarded to the head camp until two weeks after his death, the payment of the claim was made several days sooner than was expected by the officers of the local camp.
Walnut camp has been very fortunate regarding losses by death. During the 15 or 16 years that it has been in existence only two members have passed to the great beyond, Chase Parson and Fred Grunig. The camp now has a membership of 57.
