Any such company must, in its by-laws and its policies, fix, by a uniform rulle. the contingent mutual liability of its members for the payment of losses and expenses, and such contingent liabilities shall not be less than three nor more than five annual cash premiums as written in this policy; but such liability shall cease with the expiration of the time for which a cash premium has been paid in advance, except for liability incurred during that time."
