AN important consideration, which Company^
pays the best, and where can the cheapest
and best Insurance be obtained. We say, in the
CONNECTICUT MUTUAL. Because-Tho largest
Mutual Life Company-55,000 members-its im?
mense security, its surplus over all liabilities over
$6,000,000; its large and ever increasing annual
dividends, on some policies oxeeeding 70 per cent.;
tho largest animal dividend from tho earnings of
a single year ever mado by any Company in the
world; its easy modo of receiving premiums-only
HALF CASH required -you can soeuro a larger
amount of Insurance for" the money paid, than in
any other Company-in short, it pays tho beat in
the Connecticut Mutual. For particulars, call?n
