The Equitable Life

Five Hundred Different
Policy Contracts,
Life and Investment-

Surely something there that will fit your case. The Equitable Society,

He Wasn't positive.

"Can I assure your Iller asked the persuasive man.

"I dunno," replied Farmer Corntossel, "I don't want no ule assurance. I've got all I can carry, an' my wito wants me to stop some of that, I hope you can't, but I'm a truthful man, an' I ain't goin' to express no positive opinion till altor I've heard you talk awhile." Exchange.

Il that was an Equitable agent he got a policy. Thero are a few salient points about our Gold Debenture Endowment policies that you can't get away from. Assurance in force over one billion, surplus over sixtyone million-that means absolute safety. It means more-10 Tbeans a better investment than a government bond better rate of interest. There never has been such an attractive ofter made to young men. It's easy to get and easy to keep. You can't do better than to Investigate.


The family of the man
who neglects or delays
taking out adequate
life assurance is very
likely, sooner or
later, to have occasion
to regret such care-
The remedy is apparent
No better policies,

No better company than The Equitable Society

TWENTY YEARS OF WOO DS. On the first day of November the Pittsburg agency was twenty years old. And on that day, too, Edward A. Woods started on the twenty-first year of his connection with the agency. The success of this agency and of its manager are such household words in the Equitable, that it would be superfluous to speak of them here.

On November i Manager Woods published in each of the Pittsburg papers a very striking and effective advertisement, of which the following is a copy:






OF THE U. s.

1880 Strongest in the World." 1900

The Story of a Double Decade. The Pittsburg agency of the Equitable Life is 20 years old to-day.

Starting in 1880 with one office and two agents, its offices now occupy the entire seventh floor of the Tradesmens Building, its office force numbers 21 people and its 129 agents write an aggregate of $10,000,000 of assurance in a year.

Twenty years ago there were no electric lights ; no electric cars ; no natural gas; telephones, passenger elevators and bicycles were just coming into use ; typewriters were scarcely known, and automobiles were a fantastic dream of the future.

The world has grown in 20 years-Pittsburg has grown-the Equitable has grown-but read how The Pittsburg Agency Has Grown:


1900 Agents,

129 Office Force. . .

21 Rooms Occupied. . .

25 Assurance in Force. . $297,500 $49,629.200 Premium Income, . . $10.529 $1.747.522 New Business,

$21.000 $10,000,000 $100,000 Policies in Force, None Number of Policyholders, . 240 12,709

Of all the regular Life Assurance companies in existence there are only 22 whose total premium income exceeds that of this single agency of the Equitable. EDWARD A. WOODS, Manager,



ST. LOUIS MEETING. A meeting of the St. Louis agency was held on Friday, November 23, at the Mercantile Club in that city. A large number were present, and many addresses were made by the field men, expressing great satisfaction with the Society's new contract system. One of the agents called attention to the fact that he would begin next year with more than $1,200 of renewals coming to him from this year's work, and that he would start next year's work with more hope and enthusiasm, and with brighter prospects than ever before in his connection with the business. Mr. Tarbell made a speech full of fire and inspiration, and which was enthusiastically received. Speeches were also made by Messrs. R. J. Williams, D. F. Cobb, O. H. P. Hale, J. Talbot, E. T. Nolan, W. T. Hancock and J. S. Kendrick

The event was also commemorated by the publication of a very handsome little book, which was sent to all the policy holders in the territory.

May the story of the next double de ade be one of equal success with that of the past, and when it is written may it still be written not only of the Pittsburg agency, but also of Manager Edward A. Woods.

A. C. Haynes gave a lunch to his business associates at Delmonico's, November 12. They promised him a great amount of assurance during the remainder of the year, and up to date it looks as if they were going to do it with ease.

L. Samuel writes from Portland, Ore.: This is a good time to call the attention of our field men to the advantage of dealing in finance with a strong institution, instead of one that is all right in fair weather, but cannot stand the storm. The country has just furnished a good example: Alvord stole Seven Hundred Thousand Dollars from one of your New York banks, and it was fortunate for those who dealt with that bank that it was well able to weather such a loss. Cashier Brown stole only One Hundred and Ninety-one Thousand Dollars from a Kentucky bank; it promptly closed its doors, and will probably pull down to ruin a great many men who did business with them.

Whom do you suspect, Samuel?

On October 26 a meeting and dinner of the Yorkshire agency of the British branch was held at Leeds, under the presidency of Mr. H. W. Southgate, F. S. S., the manager for Yorkshire. Mr. Triggs, the joint general manager for Great Britain, was present, and made a stirring appeal for a good windup in 1900. Addresses were also made by Messrs. Southgate, White, Jarvis, Victor Southgate and others. Every one present was most enthusiastic, and a large business was promised. Here's looking across at you, Yorkshire.

Miss Amendt's picture appears in the current issue of Success. This has inspired the following from the office poet: "Have you seen Miss Amendt's picture in

"Success"? It is taken in her very bestest dress; There's a happy smile depicted on her face, And her dress it is of black "peau de soie" lace.
