"The Best Policy on Earth"
A letter from a fortunate holder of an "Elective Policy"
containing the disability clause:
Greenwood, S. C, October 24th, 1911.
Southeastern Life Insurance Company,
Greenville, S. C.
Gentlemen:?I wish to thank you for the prompt manner in which
you placed into effect the Disability Clause in policy No. 2026 held
by my brother, Mr. Chat. A. Cobb, of Abbeville, 5. C.
Some time ago he was paralized, and although not confined to
his bed, is totatly, and I fear, permanently disabled, and in no condi
tion now financially, to keep up his insurance, one premium being due
in the next few days.
Under this Disability Clause you have agreed to pay his premiums
while the disability lasts, and his family is protected for the full
amount of the Policy, $5,000.00, without further payment of premi
ums on his part.
I cannot speak too highly of your Company, and of this splendid
feature of your Elective Policies. I congratulate you on the great
progress you are making, and do not wonder that you are gaining the
confidence and patronage of such a host of our people.
Again thanking you, and with best wishes, I am,
Very truly yours,
(Signed) F. B. COBB.

Profit Sharing Extraordinary!
"S & H" Green Trading Stamps
On and after July 5th, 1912, we will share our profits with
you through the medium of the world's famous tlS. H." Green
Trading Stamps. Why have we adopted the Green Trading Stamps
as a medium of sharing our profits with you? That is a fair ques
tion. First of all, we will give S. & H. Green Trading Stamps.
The richness and variety of the premiums they obtain far surpass
those of any other plan. And further we will give trading stamps
because we think it is a good business proposition to do so.
We have always felt that the Cash Customer should have some
advantage over the customer that preferred to run a book account?
not that we appreciate a cash customer's patronage more than we do
another customer whose name we are glad to have on our books?
but because the cash is worth something to us. It helps us to take
advantage of every trade discount, thus enabling us to sell goods
cheaper, and because we can sell cheap thereby. ?So then cash is
worth something to us. As a factor in building up our business,
wc are willing to hold out special inducements to cash customers,
and our business policy is "One Price to All and that the Lowest"
We offer the&e Trading Stamps, which is the equivalent to giving
a certain cash discount, as they have a cash value greater than
the equivalent in money, because they obtain the most magnificent
premium on earth. ?
