THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of the United States.
10 BROADWAY NEW YOKK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleyen years its average an
nual New Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, audits
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
Asa GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious influence v a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new, throughout the United States.
After the policy has been in force for three years.
"The Equitable Life has paid since its organ
ization to January 1st, 1880, 51,882,730, and
closed its books upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim."
The Equitable Life Assurance Society was the first to in
T0XTIXE SAYINGS FUiXD POLICY,
And thereby to popularize life insurace to a degree before
Iy the late report of the Insurance Commissioner for the
states of Massachusetts and New York, the Equitable Life
Assurance Society shows the following strong points:
FIRST The Equitable has a larger ratio of assets to lia
bilities than any of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income last year
than any other company.
THIRD The Equitable's death rate was less last year than
any other of the leading companies.
FOURTH The Equitable realizes a higher rate of rent, or
interest, on real estate than any other company.
Tht'Society takes pleasure in referring to tue following well known business
men insured iu the society, composing an

sketch is thought to bo intended as tho
ex-premier's revenge for Thackeray's
burlesque novel of "Codings by." Tho

as to leave room fur a 'denial by tho
