A lengthened experience has demonstrated that the rates of Premium ordinarily charged by
Life Insurance Companies am from twenty-live to thirty per cent, in excess of wha'tnre necesttTry
for a safe anil legitimate conduct of the business. In other words, carefully t and P?'?tdt u4y,Juan?
agvd Companies charging "Mutual" rates have been able to return to..?iei*ri X'ohcj-aoTders "from.

When Life Insurance Com paries were first organized, the reliability of the data upon vrhiek
the premiums were constructed had not undergone tho test of experience. It was? thought, thors
fore, no more than common prudence to adopt a tcolc. of premiums which Tronld, in any otsht,
meet all the presumed and unfon-cen Coutirtgencies of the busStien. I 'aioySi Sseat t*"\h

Experience, however, ffaving satisfactorily demonstrated that these rates are oxcopsIto, Wkaf'

Availing themselves of this experience, the Directors and Manager? of tho Universal Jtijt la

which has proved to be fair and adequate, and all that was necessary to meet the rcqiiircntetttftef

It also appeared, inasmuch as the rates so established were as near as conld possibly ha dctor

Experience has shown that there are sources of profit in the practice of the business which

result from a saving in tho mortality of ".he mombers of a Company owing to the niudieal selee
? tun of good lives, a gain in interest on tlie in\estiuents of tho Company over that a,K>umcd in
the calculation of its premiums'; the profits deiivable from the lapsing and surrender of Policifs
by the members, and from other minor sources. f
* Profits from these sources, in a company po-sessed of a capital of S200,000, and doing a fair
amount of business, would give to the stockholders dividends largely in excess of what were
counted on by the Directors of tho Universal it the time of its organization. Thev have, ihsre
forc, determined to divide among the iwlicy -holdcrs of the Company a large part of the profits,
accruing from the sources named, all of which have heretofore been divided among the. stock
The plan adopted for such dividends is as follows: Every person who mar hftreafter issuro
with the Unfao'Sf? will, for the purpose of riivisibn, lie treated as a stockholder to the extent of
one Annual Premium upon his Policy; ami vill share in the profits of the Company to precisely the
mmc c.rtcn1. ?.i u Stockholder owing on cqnal amount of the capital ftock.
By this system of Insurance, original v'itli tho Unircrsal, the policy-holder secures tho follow
ing important advantages:
First. Insurance at the regular "Stotk" rate, requiring a primary outlay of about hrcnti/
to thirty jH-r cent, less than that charged by Mutual Companies, and which is equivalent to a,
yearly "dividend" paid in advance of that amount on mutual rates. This low cost of insurance
is worthy of attention. Since its organization this company has received in premiums from its
policy-holders the sum of $1,517,000. To cfiect the same amount of insurance in n MuttutMfts*
pany would have cost them an initial outlay of $2,000,01)0. By allowing its policy-holders to re
tain* in their own possession this excess of $-183,000, the Universal has virtually paid them a
"dividend" of $48.1,000, and paid it, too, in cdvance, instead of at the end ef one or more Tfais..
It is impossible to find any example of a Mutual ('onipany furnishing insurance at to Jow a cesi
by returning to its policy-holders an equal amount upon similar receipt?.
SkcoNO, Participation in the legitimate profits of the. Companif, U}fffi,tt ff(in which secures to the
policy-holders the mine treatment uhich Vinctors and Stockholders niearrf to themselves, . This snteni
of participation, in connection with the low "stock" rates of premium, most necessarily secure to
the policy-holders every advantage to be derived from prudent and careful manRgehicrlr.
'1 he low rates of premium compel economy, and, independent of ]>articipatinn, guarantee te trie
policy-holder his insurance at a rate which is not in excess of the cost In well managed rauinal
companicsr while, by the proposed plan of participation in what may be considercfV the tegiti
mate profits of the business, the cost will be still further diminished.
Thus by the combined advantages arising from low stock rate and participation in the profits
it is confidently believed that the UNIVERSAL LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY dfler? in
surance at its lowest practicable cast. '
JJW Thosc of the existing Policy-holders who desire to participate in the Profits under the new
Plan can do so by making application to the Head Office, or to any of the Agents of ihYCom
