Annual Premium $54.60
1913 Dividends $67.24
Suppose you had been born in 1831 ; that fifteen years later you insured ir. the Mutual Bene
fit for $3,500.00-on the ordinary Life Plan-the policy calling for an annual premium of $54.60.
but, that instead of your paying the company anythnig in 1913 you received a dividend of $12.64
in excess of hte premium. Would you not feel that you had been rather fortunate irr the selection of
"Unreasonable suppositions," do I hear you usny? The Mutual Benefit has made just such a
record as this, the particulars of which are embraced in our leaflet, "Record of the Oldest Policy,"
with which I wish you to be familiar.
Have you ever asked yourselves the question: "Would my -Jeath cause a material loss of in
come io my family?" If an analysis of your affairs compels an affirmative answer, your families
nerc'i additional protection, which you can best secue trhrough a Muautl Benefit policy.
If this is a new one on you, simply fill out and mail to any of the undersigned the enclosed cou
pon-now, and while the matter is fresh in your minds.
