first paragraph of the original ‘Articles of Incorporation’ states:
the farming community of Perry County, Missouri has long
the necessity of a cheaper and safer insurance than they now have,
also the necessity of retaining at home the large sums of money
taken from them without adequate compensation whereby
community is drained continually of no small proportion of its
needed capital for the benefit of the Eastern States and foreign
County Mutual Insurance Company is still guided by these precepts.
This company is policyholder owned.
There are no stockholders to drain capital from the company’s reserves.
These invested funds generate an income which serves to lower insurance
