The Policy Holders' Life and Tontine
Assurance Company of the South.
WE desire to call tho attention of the pub?
lic to aomo of the especial advantages offered
by tho abovo Company.
It is nuder the management of men of weU
known intogrity and ability.
It is a PURELY MUTUAL COMPANY, ma?
naged entirely in the interests of its Policy
It is a strictly CASH Company, avoiding
the CREDIT system which is at best expou
eivo, complicated, and often deceptive, and ia
being abandoned by the best Companies in
tho North. "IT IS SIMPLY TRADING IN
MONEY, AND DOES NOT INVOLVE ANY
Thc solvency of a Company does not de?
pend on the amount ot ita Assets, but on the
PROPORTION of Assets to Liabilities, and
ou thc character of its Assets.
Tho following table is based on tho "real?
ized" premium accumulations cf each of the
Campamos named, made from tho statements
of tho Companies, and without any purpose
of making invidious comparisons-for the
sake of truth solely:
Asset i to
New York Life..
St. Louis Mutual
Security, N. Y...
Tho alovo tuBt is more severe on a young
Company than an old one, yet tho Policy
Holders' occupiee a 'high position, although
but one year old. lt might bc added that it
docs so despite tho fact that its investment
iu State securities is valued at 163 per cent,
below cost. Thc investment was compulsory.
Prudence in tho selection of risks is an?
other lett of good management. Theeuoceas
of the Tolicy Holders' can be best shown by a
comparison with a few well known Companiea.

Carolina.Not stated iu report.
Piedmont and Arlington, not distinctly stated
Lest it might be objected that tbia compar?
ison favors a young Company, because of its
lighter mortality, (so much the better for it,)
the following is submitted, to which no such
objection can be mado.
Losses on New Business.
Mutaal Life < 16C9); $1 to each 763 at risk.
Policy Holders (1870), $1 to each 583 at risk.
Threo years' average of forty-six Northern
Companios (1867-'8-'9), $1 to each 500 at risk.
Equitable (1869), $1 to each 300 at risk.
Connecticut Mutual (1869), $1 to each 285 a*
New York Life (1S09,) $1 to each 263 at risk.
Thc large incomes received from interest
by old Companiee belongs and is apportioned
to thc older policies, and ie not used in paye?
ment of death claims; therefore, the only just
test of "cost of insurance" ia the per centage
of premium incomo paid out in settlement of
"death claims and expenses."

A careful examination of the foregoing ta?
bles will show that in the threo most impor?
tant points of management, to wit: Percent?
age of "realized" assets, prudence In selec?
tion of risks, and economy, tho Policy Holders
has at once taken a front rank.
By patronizing thia Company you secure all
the advantages that can bo safely granted Ly
any other, and at the same time aid in re?
building our waste pisces.
Last, but not least, you will seenro higher
rates cf interest on your investment than you
can if you send it North,
