) INCORPORATED 1804.
Das boon in operation but four years, during
which time it has assured a larger amount than
any Company in the United States, during a cor?
responding period of existence One of thc chief]
causes of its organization, was the forfeiture hy
several Northern Companies of tho policies of I
Southerners, during the war. The loading ofticcrs
of this Company protested against thia injustice,
and on ils consummation, withdrew and orga?
nized tin- "GLOBE MUTUAL," on principles moro
liberal and ?lint than those yot adopted by any
other Insurance Company. In tho event of death
in hattie >>r in a duel, tho cquitahlo value of the
policy will bo returned to tho heirs. ALL other |
Companies forfeit it. In case of suicide, the
FULL Policy is paid. No restriction on travel.
This Company has, in its guarantee fund of |
$509,000, an element of strength possessed by no
other Company. It offers the entirely new feature
of Probability Endowment, which gives the
largest possihlo sum for tho premium paid. No
other Company posse.-ses this feature. Insures
children of any ago. In the 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.
