Simply get an ounce of othtnc

and a few applications should show
you how easy it ls to rid yourself ot
the homely freckles and get a bean

one ounce needed for the weist case.

Keeping Money at Home
In paying out money for anything, whether 'lt be Insurance or shoes, our
first question ls: "Am I getting value received ?"
For a quarter of a century, The Mutual Benefit Life Insurance Com
pany has been giving tho people.t>f South Carolina the very Highest Quali
ty ef Life Insurance In return for the premiums paid. Our policyholders
have attested their satisfaction in such substantial ways that the Company's
business .in this State has increased year by year, until on January 1st,
li*15. lt amounted to within a fraction or $18.000,000.00.
But that bi not all. In addition to the large sums paid policyholders last
year, and tho liberal loans which are always available on- policies, tho
Company has loaned in Ute last titree or four years a . very considerable
amount on. South Carolina farms. In 1912, '13 and '14 the amount paid out
and Invested in South Carolina was $684,799.07 in excess or the total pre
miums collected. The Company's total South Carolina investments, on De
cember 31st, 1914, amounted, aa will be noticed, to $2,224,365.34-an Increase
during tho past year of $446.966.30.. THAT MEANS KEEPING YOUR
