of the friendship ot two men, who,

Thero are eight regular life ns
BiiraDoe companies besides the
Equitable organized under the laws
of the State of Now York which are
now in active pursuit of public
patronage, tbe oombined "ad?
mitted" surpluses of which ou the
1st of January last amounted to
3:56.1157,356.05. This amount iu
I cluiles the snrplusos of the two com
panics next in size to tho Equitable.
The admitted surplus of the Equi?
table alone is over Eiohty-onk and
A HALF per cont. ot the total sur
pluses of the other eight New York
When it ib understood that surplus
is not only the measure of financial
strength, but that from it alone can
dividends be declared, tbo pre?
eminent position of the Equitable
on the vital poiuts of seounty for
tho as-iiirod and the cost of assur?
ance becomes apparent.
The EQUITABLE LIFE AS?
SURANCE SOCIETY of the United
States is tho STRONGEST and
LA R( i EST Life Assurauoo Company
in the world.
