The Mutual Life Insurance Company was organized in 1843, the first
of iff kind in America. In 24 years it had become the largest in the
world. For 39 years, in spite of the keenest competition, it has held the lead,
passing unharmed through panics, failures, strikes and wars meeting witlr
promptness its every obligation and having 460 millions of assets to-day.
The recent Insurance agitation was unique. The investigation
certainly was thorough. As every one knows the Mutual Life was on th|
firing line. The smoke has now cleared away. What do we find?
In the first place we find that the Mutual Life is still the largest
and staunchest Life Insurance Company in the world. Without defend*,
ing or in the least belittling the abuses and extravagances recently brought*
to light, everybody should keep in mind the fact that the solvency oli
this Company has not for a moment been affected thereby. Concerninfl
the work of the finance committee which has been attacked in the press,
this Company's auditing committee consisting of Messrs. Truesdale,
Auchincloss, Tish and Dixon stated on February 15th, 1906:
"The Committee certify that the investments of the Company are of
the highest order and well selected." and have found the valuation given
safe and conservative, in many instances less than the market value and in
•none in excess of such value."
In the next place, extravagance has been stopped, and those res-,
ponsible for it have gone a new management has been installed, andL
retrenchments have been effected that have already saved vast sums of
money and will save much more as time goes on. Legislative reforms
hjive likewise been anticipated, and the Company is nopy as sound at the
circumference as it always has been at the core.
In the next place, the ending of the first quarter presents an excel-^
knt opportunity for comparing this year with last.
The amount paid policy holders is $9,608,436.50, an increase of

This remarkable showing is a good thing to be kept in mind by everybody—
those now insured in the Mutual Life, and those who should be. It cannot
be accounted for by the smaller amount of new business written. Of the
saving for the quarter, the sum of $390,961.52 if in items not connected
with the obtaining of new business.
In the next place we find that this Company is doing business—'
more business than any other company in the world with one exception.
Far from being paralyzed or demoralized it is forging right ahead. Policies
are being written cach day honest trustees, keenly
alert, are directing its affairs faithful and experienced men are doing its
intricate work loyal agents are explaining its advantages and discriminating
people are obtaining its protection.
In the next place we find that tKere need be no question as
to the future. A policy in the Mutual Life is just as good as gold.
Nto obligation could possibly be better. A bond of the United States
Government is no safer. It will, therefore, be a misfortune if ar.y one
is misled by the writer who prints for revenue or for notoriety, or by
the attorney who is out for his clients, or the competitor who is out for
himself, or even by the gentlemen who have organized themselves into
committees under an honest misapprehension of the facts. Such incidents
mfjy tend to hinder business, but need deter no one who needs insurance.
With economy, which means rapid improvement in regard to earning
of surplus for dividends, everywhere at work in the Mutual Life with
its immense size as the basis for moderate general expenses with smaller
liability for renewal commissions to agents than any other Company with
the cost of new business limited by law for all Companies, how can any
one possibly better provide for the uncertainties of the future than
through a policy in the first Insi^ce Qom&m in America, and the
strongest in the world—
