Insurance of Animals in 1906

CAPE ARGUS - 1906, September 22
The Owner of Cabs has noticed with pleasure that an insurance company had been started for the sole object of insuring the lives of animals. He said this had supplied a long-felt want. Many a poor man who had only his horse or mule to depend upon for his living had lost the animal and was deprived of his living, not being able to replace this loss. Through this company he could protect himself, and he trusted this new venture would receive the success it deserved. Cab-owners should take advantage of this, as well as wagon-carriers, butchers, bakers, etc. The fees were very small, and there was no doubt that if this company was well supported the charges should become considerably less.
