The Best of All
In All Things at All Times.
There are many GOOD life insurance companies, but among
them all there must be one BEST. THE BEST is THE EQUIT
ABLE. If you wish to know why, send for: i, the report of the
Superintendent of Insurance for the State of New York on the ex
amination of The Equitable; 2, for actual results of maturing poli
cies; 3, for statement of death claims paid in 1894. Then you will
know the three great reasons of The Equitable s supremacy: 1st,
its financial stability; 2d, its great profits and advantages to living
policy-holders; 3d, the promptness of its payments and liberality
of its settlements.
