Robert E. Lee Portrait
THE SLAVE OWNER'S SPECTRE.
And the Nigger never flitting,
still is sitting, still is sitting
On that horrid bust of HORACE
just above my chamber-door;
And his lips, they have the
snigger, of a worthless freeborn Nigger,
And he swells his sombre figger,
when I ask him, with a roar,
"Will you blacks again be Cattle,
as you used to be before?"
Cries the Chattel, "Never more!"

Life Insurance Company,
No. 98 BROADWAY, New York,
Offers more advantages to Insurers than any other Company in the United
States. Its prominent features are as
follows: A permanent Capital Stock of
$125,000, now largely added to by accumulation. Stockholders receive no other
dividends than legal interest on their stock. Policy-Holders receive
ALL THE PROFITS,
WITHOUT ANY PERSONAL LIABILITY.
The only Stock Company in the
United States whose Charter expressly requires that ALL the profits shall be
divided among the Policy-Holders. It has, therefore, all the
advantages and security of a Stock and Mutual Co. combined, without their
separate disadvantages. Dividends to Policy-Holders once
credited, are never forfeited. Proportion of Assets to
Liabilities LARGER than most other Companies in the United States. Liberality and Promptitude in the
settlement of Claims. All reasonable aid granted to
Members to enable them to KEEP THEIR POLICIES IN FORCE in case of their
inability to pay their future premiums. Let no Member therefore ALLOW HIS
POLICY TO LAPSE without first advising with the Company. CYRUS CURTISS President. CLEAYTON NEWBOLD Vice-President. W. A. BREWER, JR Actuary and
