licies. It is immaterial to tho Directors
which form 'of policy is taken by in
2d The Life and Endowment forms
of policy provide for annual cash divi.
(lends and a sui render vnlue; arc Indis
putable after three years and payable
immediately after proof of death.
8d Tho premiums on a Tontine no-
licy are the same as on the Ordinary
Life, but, while the latter is only pay.
able in the event of death, the holder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
tho whole of tho reserve nnu tho accu
mulated profits in cash nt the end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years ate past,
he can, without any larger premium
than on an ordinary policy, secure these
4th Experience shows that tho icturn
paid in cash on maturing Tontine po
licies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that tho avtrngo cost of the
assurance will bo only nbout tho interest
on the premiums.
0th Tontine policies, like others, are
paid In full in the event of death nt any
timo during tho term of the policy, and
nro incontestable after three years, and
payablo immediately after duo proof of
0th Experience shows that tho mor
tality is lower among Tontino policy,
holders, as tho better lives seek this
kind of assurances, which is a consider
ablo source of profit.
7th Tontino policies will be mode
non-forfeltablo under tho Jaws of thu
State, if so desired ot lliu time tho as
suranco is effected.
