cotton market today. Scalpers took

shorts bought back their cotton they
put the market up on themselves and
brought about a net advance of 4 to

THE HABIT OF GOOD READ
Cultivate the habit of good reading.
I think every man, every young man,
ought to have a little library of his
own, even if it is only half a dozen
good.books that ho can carry around
with him in the bottom of his trunk
books that he bas tried and tested. I
books that he loves, books on whose
pages he can mark himself, hooks he
will read with his best girl when he is
fortunate enough to get one and that
they will mark together perhaps. Be
gin early to have a little group of your
own books. Take them into your life, j
so you will enrich your life with lar-1
ger and nobler thoughts and feelings
and so become a richer and a larger i
and a nobler and a saner and a netter
balanced man. You yourself will be
of greater value to the community.
Not simply iv??l you have a greater
earning power through efficiency, but
you yourself will be of greater value
to the community, will be a better man j
to Uv J with, and you will have more j
to give to that common thought and
feeling which is the real life of our1
nation. We measure our country by
her size, by her wealth, by her power
as a world force. Thia is not the right
way. The way to measure our coun
try is by the number of fine, true, no
ble men and women who are ready to
consecrate their powers and their In
telligence to her service.-Hnry Van

Dividends of 1915
THE regular dividends to be credited by the Mutual Bene
fit Life Insurance Company to its members on-partied
pating premium paying Life and Endowment policies
upon their anniversaries in 1915 show a substantial increase
over the regular dividends credited in 1914. Such increase
results from the fact that it has become unnecessary for
the Company to retain for expenses and contingencies as
large a portion of that part of the stipulated premiums provi
ded therefor as has heretofore b*en retained for such pur
This is the third increase in the regular dividend scale of
the Mutual Benefit since the present premium rates and re
serve basis were adopted in 1900. The regular dividend
scale adopted in 1900 was continued through 1909. The in- *
creased scale adopted in 1912 has been continued up to this
time. The new increased scale for 1915 became effective .w

Absolute Security !
Liberal Policy Contract !
IN connection with the above announcement that dividends for 1915 oft prfcrri
lum paying life and endowment policies have been increased very substantial
ly over those payable on similar policies in 1914 it is worth whil? to call'!At
tention to the following record of the Mutual Benefit Life insurance Company
covering the past seven years. To our knowledge the record is one which his not
been equaled by any other life insurance company.
In 1907 t>e Mutua! Benefit still further liberalized, for both oM and new
policies, its non-forfeiture system adopted in 1879 and modified in 1895 and 190*0. !
In l9o8 the Company established a Suspended Mortality fund, which relieves
the Company of the necessity of changing its dividend scale to meet fluctuations
in death losses from year to year.
In 1909 the Company increased its dividend scale for 1910 and declared a *'
special dividend of $675,000.00 payable in 19io in addition to the increased divi- '
In 1910 the Company established a Real Estate Depreciation fund. , *
In 1911 it established a Security Fluctuation fund and made a further increase
in its dividend scale for 1912.
In J 912 the Company established higher reserves for policies ?s?i?ect prk>r tr>
1900, and provided that thereafter the loan and surrender values of such* policies
should be based upon such higher reserves.
In 1913 the Company declared a special dividend of $861,000.00 in addition
to the regular dividend, and adopted an increased dividend scale for the year 1915.
In 1914 the Company declared a special dividend of $861,1,^0.00 in addi
tion to the regular dividend, and adopted an increased dividend scale for the year
lt will be noted that the several increases in thc Mutual Benefit's dividend
scale and the declaration of special dividends have followed the establishment of
contingency reserves computed upon a mathematical basis, and which, In the light
of past experience, are amply sufficient to protect the Mutual Benefit against those
contingencies to which all life insurance companies are liable.
The first concern of the Mutual Benetit Life Insurance Company has been the
absolute security of its outstanding policy contracts. Secondly, it has endeavored
to liberalize its policy contracts to the fullest possible extent and to furnish insur- j*
ance thereunder at the lowest possible cost. Inasmuch as it has been established
that the earnings of the Company are sufficient to maintain the contingency re- '
serves upon the bases adopted and to provide for increased dividends, such increase
has been made.
The Mutual Benefit confidently presents its claims to the patronage of the'in
suring public upon the ?bove record, which is unique in the history of life'insur-'
