            Casualty Corporation (the "Company"), Forms 3, 4, and 5 in
            accordance with Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of
            1934 and the rules thereunder;

        (2) do and perform any and all acts for and on behalf of the
            undersigned which may be necessary or desirable to complete and
            execute any such Form 3, 4, or 5 and timely file such form with
            the United States Securities and Exchange Commission and any
            stock exchange or similar authority; and

        (3) take any other action of any type whatsoever in connection with
            the foregoing which, in the opinion of such attorney-in-fact,
            may be of benefit to, in the best interest of, or legally
            required by, the undersigned, it being understood that the
            documents executed by such attorney-in-fact on behalf of the

        The undersigned hereby grants to each such attorney-in-fact full power
and authority to do and perform any and every act and thing whatsoever
