CO. 32 EASTERN AVENUE. Three Months for 25 Cents. THE CALEDONIAN. THE DIFFERENCE. Massachusetts has six old line Life Insurance Companies, that have been in continuous business since organized in the years 1823 to 1S62, an average age of 54 years for each Comgany. During this long period nothing has ever happened to give n Policy Holder the slightest fear. Since 1877 there has been sixty (GO) Assessment Associations organized in the State, of which number only three (3) remain "to tell the story" and these are only four and seven years old each. Comment is unnecessary. No wonder that the late law was passed prohibiting further organization, and issuing of any new policies by the three left. The State Mutual Life of Mass. has been in continuous business for 54 years, has the largest amount of insurance in force, and does nearly double the new business of any other Massachusetts Company from year to year in its own state, stands the highest financially, and pays the largest dividends. A Massachusetts Company is a good one to be insured in, and the State Mutual is the best. "Don't take my word for it, but investigate." CHAS. S. HASTINGS, Gen'l Agent for Vermont and Northern N. H.
