Globe Mutual Life Insurance Co., of N. Y.
CASU ASSETS JANUARY 1, 18C0, $1,171,000.
Has been in operation but four years, during
which time it lias assured a larger amount than
any Company in tho United States, during a cor?
responding period of existence. Ono of tho chief |
causes of its organization, was the forfeiture by
soveral Northern Companies of tho policies of I
Southerners, during the war. Thc leading officers 1
of this Company protested against this injustice,
and on its consummation, withdrew and orga?
nized tho "GLOBE MUTUAL," on princir.lea moro
liberal and just than those Vet adopted by any
other Insurance Company. In the event of death
in battlo or in a dael, tho equitable value of the
policy will bo returned to tho heirs. ALL other j
Companies forfeit it. In caso of suicide, the
FULL Policy is paid. No restriction on travel.
Thia Company has, in its guarantee fund of I
$500,000, an element of strength possessed by no
other Company. It offers the entirely new feature
of Probability Endowment, which gives tho
largest possible sum for the premium paid. No
other Company possesses thia featnro. Insures
children of any age. In tho moderation of its
Sreminm ratea, in the variety of its tables, in its
ividonds and in the security offered insurers, it
invitee comparison with any other Company.
