REV. Dr. Cumming, of London, saya: "Tho assuranco of life is ono of the moat
Christian things that I know, for what is it? It is taking the load that would
CRUSH ONE FAMILY and spreading it over twenty thousand families; so that a
mero drop lights upon each, iustcad of the overwhelming torrent falling apon one.
It seems to mc a beautiful illustration of bearing one another's burdens. And,
therefore, let every young man entering upon lifo, every head of a family, whether
high or low, set his bouso m order so far as to assure his life."
Thousands of widows and orphans live to attest the divine beneficence of LIFE
INSURANCE. Without its protecting togis, many of them would, to-day, be beg?
gars Jupon tho streets, or occupants of poor-houses and penitentiaries. " No man
eau foretell what will bc his circumstances at tho time of his death. Tho rich man of
to-day dieB the pauper of to-morrow, and the family, delicately reared, become the
unprepared victims of dire Want, with her train of couutless evils. Sucha result fa
impossible, with a policy of Lifo Insurance. It, indeed, offers the otdy absolutely safe
investment which can be made for the bouetit of ono's family and of his own old
ago. AU othor investments may result in loss or ruin. If all would insure, who can
calculate tho immense suffering and crime which tho world would be spared!
