All intelligent ages have had their

designation of "club."
If you have read history, you know

Ken .lohnson club, a Krolhers' club, to
which Swift ami Kolingbroke belonged:
a Literary club, w-hich Kurke anil Cold

reading rooms where j'ou find all news

there is a library, where you find all
books from hermeneutics to the fairy

these are from luxuriant homes, and
they have excused themselves for a

they may enjoy the larger sociability

"Out of the six secular nights of the

llring me mallet and chisel, and I
will cut on the tombstone that man's
epitaph. "Klessed are the dead who
die in the Lord." "No." you say, "that
would not be appropriate." "Let me die
the death of the righteous, and let my
last end be like His." "No." you say.
"that would not be appropriate." Then
give me the mallet and chisel, and I will
cut an honest epitaph: "Here lies the
victim of a dissipating club house!" I
think that damage is often done by
by the scions of some aristocratic
family, who belong to one of these
dissipating club houses. People
coining up from humbler classes
feel it an honor to belong to the
same club, forgetting the fact that
many of the sons and grandsons of
the large commercial establishments of
the last generation are now, as to mind,
imbecile; as to body, diseased; as to
morals, rotten. They would have got
through their property long ago if they
had had full possession of it; but the
wily ancestors, who earned the money
by hard knocks, foresaw how it was to
be and they tied up everything in the
will. Now, there is nothing of that
unworthy descendant but his grand
father's name and roast beef rotundity.
And yet how many steamers there are
which feel honored to lash fast that
worm-eaten tug, though it drags them
straight into the breakers.
Another test by which you can find
whether your club is legitimate or il
legitimatethe effect it has on your
secular occupation. I can understand
how through such an institution a man
can reach commercial success. I know
some men have formed their best busi-
' ness relations through such a channel.
If the club has advantaged you in an
honorable calling it is a legitimate club.
But has your credit failed? Are bar
Rainmakers more cautious how they.

hoofs of the fast hoi-ses, or drowned in
large potations of cognac and Morion

"Loch Karn." Their business house
was the "ViJl'Mlu Havre." They struck,
and the "Ville du Havre" went under.
Which would you rather have pressed

chalice of the Christian communion?
Who would you rather have for your

who spend their evenings betting,

Our plan is a new application of an old principle, and is based up
on thp. actual experience of successful life insurance companies, cover
ing a period of over 200 years. The same principles govern both, only
WE pay while you UVK.
THEY pay when you DIE.
WE offer the INVESTMENT features.
THEY protect in case of DEATH.
With them, death is the moving factor, causing the payment of the
policy; with us, a definite and fixed mathematical rule, in lieu of death,
matures tjie policy.
They figure on so many men out of a thousand dying we figure
on so many policies, They kill the man we kill the policy.
There is 110 reason why a man should die to reap the ben
fit of his investment.
We return an average of $2.30 for every dollar paid us, and yet we
assume an obligation less than one-third as great as has been assumed
and paid for years by the leading life insurance companies of America.
Only about twenty (20) per cent, of the people are insurable. Only
the sound and healthy, who least need it's advantages, can obtain
life insurance.- Why should there not be a means provided whereby
the other eighty (80) per cent, of the population can carry an invest
ment the same as the favored few who can get life insurance? Our mis
sion is to open the door to the entire population to enjoy the same or
greater benefits for an ecptal or less expenditure, considering the ad
vantage to be derived, and that those advantages may be enjoyed during
Jifo py the one making the investment.
That our plan is popular and based upon sound business princi
ples, is evidenced by our large and increasing membership, as shown
by our remarkable 'Exhibit of Growth, See literature.
We court the clysest scrutiny and most thoroug investigation. No.
statement made that cannot be verified by actual results.
