It is a purely mutual Company. There aro no stockholders. All its
assets, surplus and earnings belong exclusively to policy-hold

It has an honorahlo record of fifty-four years, during all of which

Its policies are incontestable from date of issue.
Its oolioios as now issued contain no restriction as to rosidonce, travel
or occupation, as to habits of lifo, or as to manner, time or

The solo condition is that if premiums aro paid the Company will
certainly pay the policy immediately in tho event it becomes
a claim by death, either in one sum or a limited number of in
stalments at option or insured, and thus leave a widow or an
estate a legacy and not a law-suit.
