A LEADING WESTERN LIFE
INSURANCE COMPANY
Why should an Iowa man send his
money east for Life Insurance when he
can place it in The Central Life of Des
Moines, and get a better policy at less
expense.
The following are some of the rea
sons why The Central Life is Best for
policy holders:
1. The Central Life shows the lowest death rate
of any company in the United States, therefore the
highest class of business.
2. The Central Life has the largest percentage of
assets to liability to policy holders, therefore stands
first in the point of ability to fulfill its obligations.
3. The Central Life being a Central Western Com

has made and will make the largest accumulations for
policy holders.
4. The Central Life deposits with the Insurance

sufficient
to guarantee every policy holder against loss
therefore a Government Bond cannot

weaken, but give tone and strength to
the tissues and organs involved. W.
H. Howell, of Houston, Texas, says:
"No better pill can lie used than Little
Early Risers for constipation, sick
headache, etc." Sold liy Nick Dolling,
