("1ASH ASSETS JANUARY 1, $1,171,000.
J INCORPORATED 1804
Has 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 the chief
causes ot tts organization, was the forfeiture by
sevi l il Northern Companies of tho policies ot
Southerners, during the war. The leading oflicers
of this Company protested against this injustice,
and on ii* consummation, withdrew and orga?
nized tho "GLOBE ML' t'UAL," on principles moro
liberal and just than those yet adopted by any
other Insurance Company. In tho cvont of death
in battle or in a duel, the equitable value of the
policy will be rotnrncd to tho hoirs. ALL other
Companies, forfeit it. In case of suicido, tho
FULL Policy is paid. No restriction on travel.
This Companv has, in it H guarantee fund of
$500,000. an element of atrongth possessed by no
other Company. It ofl'ers the entirely new fuaturo
of Probability Endowment, which gives the
largest possible sum for the premium paid. No
other Companv jmsse-se* this featnre. Insures
children of any uge. In tho moderation of its
premium rates, in tho variety of its tables, in it H
dividends and in tho seenrity offered insurers, it
invites comparison with anv other Company.
