AFEW reasons why they should have the
preference over all others:
1. wheeler A Wilson's Sewing Machine is
much simpler than any of tho others; re?
quiring lesa than half tho amount of ma?
2. As the reanlt of this simplicity, thia ma?
chino ia much lesa liable than the others to
get ont of repair.
3. Another result of thia simplicity is
4. Another result ia less friction, and, con?
sequently, greater ease and rapidity of mo?
tion, with less noise.
5. And greatest of all, that it uscB no Shut?
tle, and makes the lock atitch.
It ia tho cheapest to buy tba beet. Buy the
machine that lias justly, fairly and honora?
bly won a reputation and independence
against a strong and hitter competition. For
moro than twenty years has tho Wheeler A
Wilson not only stood first and foremost, but
now stands tho unrivalled Sewing Machine oi
the enlightened civilized world. Buy tho ma?
chine that has been thus tested and proved,
and then you ure sure to get the best. For

THIS COMPANY offers the fellowing IMPORTANT ADVANTAGES to those
about EFFECTING INSURANCE ON THEIR LIVES:
1. Insurance at Stock Raten, being from 20 to 30 per cent, lcea than the rates charged by
2. Each Policy-holder is regarded as a Stockholder to the oxtent of one Annual Premium
on his Policy, and will aharo in tho Profita of the Company to tho same extent as a Stock?
holder owning an equal amonnt of thc Capital Stock.
3. Every Policy issued by the Company IB non-forfeitablo, and contains a ?clause stating its
exact Surrender Value.
Before Insuring your Life or accepting the Agency of any Company,
Il IC AD TI1K FOLLOW INC!
A lengthened experience has demonstrated that tho ratea of premium ordinarily charged
by lifo inauranco companies aro from twenty-live to thirty per cent, in exctBs of what are ne?
cessary for a safo aud legitimate conduct of tho business. In other words, carefully and
nrndcntly-managed companies charging "mutual" rates have been able to return to their
policy-holders from 25 to 30 per ceut. ot the amount charged for premiums.
When lifo insurance companies wero firat organized, reliability of the data upon which pre?
miums were constructed had not undergone test of experience. It WSB thought, therefore, no
moro than common prudence tn adopt a scale of premiums which would, in any event, meet
all tho presumed and unforeseen contingencies of the business. As long aB the matter was
luvolvad in some doubt, it WSB better to fix the ralo loo high than to incur the risk of mak?
ing it too low; becanao, in the formor case, tho error could bo easily remedied, at least in
part, by returning to the policy-holders, at certain intervals, such portion of the premium
charged HH waB found necessary tor the purposes of tho business and the complete eecurity
of (he company. Experience, however, having satislacto. il j demonstrated that these rates
aro excessive, what possible excuso can there ho for maintaining th? m?
Availing thomaelves of thia'experience, thc Directors aud Managers of the Universal Life
Insurance Company, at its organization, adopt? d a ecalo of premiums in accordance there?
with, and which bas proven to bo fail and adequate, and all that was necessary to meet the
requirements of the business. These premiums aro about twenty-five per cont, lower than
those charge by mutual enmuaneis. It also appeared, inasmuch as the rates so established
were a? near AH could possibly be determined fair rates, and not iu excess of v. hit insurance
has previously cost tbe policyholders in mutual companies, that an; profits arising from
prudent management Justly and properly belonged to thc stockholders of tho company, for
tho rink incurred by them in undertaking tho business.
Expe. ienco has shown that there aro sources of profitin tho prartico of thc boniness which
theory will not admit of being considered as el? ments in the calculation of the premiums,
rin se results form a caving in the mortality of the mouthe rs of a company owing to the me?
dical selection of good lives, a gain in interest on the investments of tho company over that
assumed iu tho calculation of its pr? m innis, thc profils dcrivablo from tho lapsing and sur?
render of policies by the members, and from other minor sources. Profits from these sources,
in a company possessed of a capita' of $200,000, and doing a fair amonnt of business, would
givo to tho stockholders dividends largely in excess nf what wore counted on by the Directors
of the Universal at the time of itu organization. They have, therefore, determined to divide
among thu policy-holders of tho company ii largo part of tho profits acoruing from the
sources named, all of which have heretofore been divided among the stockholders.
Tho plan adopted for such division is as follows: Every person who may hereafter insure
with tho Universal will, for tho purposes of division, he treated aa a stockholder to ext? nt of
ono animal premium upon bia policy; and will share in tho profits of the company to precisely
samo extent as a stockholder owning an cqnal summit of tho capital Block.
By this Kystom of insurance, original with tho Universal, tho policy-holder secures the fol?
lowing im port un t advantages:
1. Insurance at the regular "stock" rates, r? quiring a primary outlay of abc ut twenty
thirty per cent. loss than that charged by mutual companies, and which is ?quivalent to
yearly "dlvhlond" paitl in i dvance nf that amount on mutual rates. This low cost of insur?
ance is worthy of attention. Since its organization, this company has received in premiums
from its policy-holders the sum of f1,617.000. To effect the same amount of inaut ant e in a
mutual company would have cost th? ni an initial outlay of ?2 000,000. By allowing its policv
bofders to retain, in their own possession, this excess ??f $483,000, tho Universal bas virtually
paid them a "dividend" of $483,000 and paid lt, too, in advance, instead of at the end of one
or more years. It is impossible lo find any example cf a mutual company furnishing insur?
ance nt so low a coat hy returning to policy-hohlcra an eipial amount upon similar receipts.
2 Participation in tho legitimate profits of tho company, upon a plan which secures to the
pnlioy-holdcrs tho samo treatment which directors and stockhold? rs award to themselves.
This sysicm of participation, in connection with tho low "stock" rates of premiums, muet
necessarily secure to tho polioy-holdere every possible advantage to bc derived from prudent
and careful management.
The low rates <*f premium con pd economy, and, independent of participation, guarantee
t<> tho policy-holder his insurance at a rate w hich is not in e xe? ss of the cost in well managed
mut uni companies; w hile, hy th?! proposod plan ot participation in what may bo considered
thn legitimate profits of the business, the cost will bu still lut t lier diminish? d'.
j bus by tho combined advantages arising front '"w stock rate and participation in profita,
it is confidently believed tho UNIVERSAL LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY offers insurance at
its lowest practicable cost.
Those of tho existing policy-holders who ?lesir?11<> participate in the profits under the new
phiti can ?to so hv making application to the head office, or to anv agents of the company.
