Globe Mutual Life Insurance Company,
of New York.
CASH ASSETS JANUARY 1, 18(10, $1,171,000.
Has hoon in oporation but four years, during
which time it has assured a larger amount than
any Company in tho United States, during a cor?
responding period of existence Ono of thc chief
causes of its organization, was tho forfeiture by
several Northern Companies of tho policies of
Southerners, during tho war. Thc loading officers
of this Company protested against this injustice,
and on its consummation, withdrew and orga?
nized tho "GLOBE MUTUAL," on principios moro
liberal and j Hst than those yet adopted by any
other Insurance Company. In tho evout of death
in hattie or in a dtiol, tho equitablo value of the
policy will ho returned to tho heirs. ALL other
Companies forfeit it. In caso of suicide, tho
FULL Policy is paid. No restriction on travel.
This Company has, in its guarantoo fund of
$500,000, an clement of strength possessed hy no
other Company. It offers tho entirely new fcaturo
of Probability Endowment, which gives tho
largest possiblo sum for tho premium paid. No
othor Company posso.-Bos this feature. Insures
children of any ago. In tho moderation of its
premium rates, in tho variety of its tables, in its
dividends and in tho security offered insurers, it
invites comparison with any other Company.
