Cancel for September 1: Bennett, Hutchinson & Co., Insurance

Hutchinson & Co.,
SEP   1   1898

Almost certainly coming from the same document, these three stamps likely paid the tax on an insurace policy.  The 1/2 stamp was used to pay the tax on an insurace premium of one dollar or less. 

Bennett Hutchinson was an Indiana-based insurance company.
