346 & 348 Broadway, New York City 

To the Policy-holders and Public: 

One year ago I stated that the European war would not have any material effect on our Company, notwithstanding the world-wide character 

of its business. 
I now confirm that statement by facts based on experience that includes twelve added months of war. 

In life insurance the financial effect of mortality is expressed by the per cent. which the total actual death losses of the year bear to the expected 
death losses according to the tables of mortality adopted by the state for valuation purposes. Through a period of years this per cent. (disregarding 

fractions) has been as follows: 1912 Actual death losses 76‘, of the ‘‘expected’’ 
1913 Actual death losses 73‘, of the ‘‘expected”’ 
1914 Actual death losses 73‘, of the “‘expected’’ (5 months of war 
1915 Actual death losses 73‘, of the ‘‘expected’’ (12 months of war 

In all the world, from the beginning of hostilities up to January, 1916, seventeen months, we had in all the membership of the Company 534 separate 

war claims. 
During the year 1915: 409 members of the Company were killed in war 
448 members of the Company were killed by accident 
707 members of the Company died of cancer 
772 members of the Company died of pneumonia 
950 members of the Company died of tuberculosis 
In the grim battle of life with its inevitable mortality and its unnecessary slaughter, the mortality of a world-war, even while it is being prosecuted, 
amongst a membership that is also world-wide, is about: 
91‘, of that caused by accident in the same membership 
58‘. of that caused by cancer in the same membership 
53’, of that caused by pneumonia in the same membership 
43‘. of that caused by tuberculosis in the same membership 
A modern war cannot be localized. Electricity, steam, and the partial conquest of the air, have made the world so small that any great international! 
upheaval shocks the whole of civilization. War under such conditions takes its toll impartially, and in these days the nation which is an “‘innocent 
bystander”’ suffers proportionately with the belligerents. 
It is interesting to notice that this Company had, in seventeen months, war losses from seventeen countries, and that what may be called AMERI- 
CAN LOSSES exceed those of any belligerent country except in two instances: 

United States (including Lusitania losses $112,000 
Australia 29,000 
Austria-Hungary 105,500 
Belgium 23,000 
Canada 49,000 
Great Britain 84,000 
Russia 76,000 

Only in France and Germany have the totals exceeded those of our own country. 

Life insurance isn’t designed merely for times of peace. It would confess its inability highly to serve humanity if it did not measurably cover all 
the risk naturally incurred by healthy men. 


In New Business we have done well. We have made good the natural shrinkage on an outstanding business of $2,347,000,000 at the close of 1914, 
and increased the total amount to $2,403,000,000 at the close of 1915. 

Of the $214,000,000 new business paid for in 1915 over $200,000,000 was secured in the United States and Canada. 

CLOSE OF 1915. 

Market values, as a whole, are a little lower than a year ago. Bonds of belligerent nations are quoted in our Annual Statement at the market 
where a quotation was obtainable, otherwise and in only one instance as of June 30, 1914.

There is a pathos in the struggle of the unfor 
tunate to put bread upon his table, shoes upon his 

hildren’s feet, and provide an education for his 
yoys and girls and a good home for his family. 
[t is still more pathetic to find one who has accu

the primrose path of dalliance

In this land of golden opportunity the toiler who

nd who is not swept off his feet by the eager 
yursuit of a luxurious life can look forward hope- 
fully to the day when he shall have achieved a

itisfactorily for his declining years. It is for him to

HERE was never a time when the 

relations of mutual confidence and coopera- 

tion between the men in high position in our 
government and in our financial and business world 
was greater than it is to-day. This is a crisis in the 
history of civilization in which we are involved, and 
any political party that cannot or will not rise to the 
occasion, or that by reason of prejudice or partizan 
ship fails to recognize the emergency and seeks to 
evade its great issues, should be ruthlessly put aside.

REO F- QloiderKe or 

On the standard Reo the Fifth chassis and at 
the same price as the touring car model, this Road- 
ster is one of the nattiest, classiest and roomiest cars 
of this type you ll see this season. 

Note the graceful lines when the top is up——an 
effect much desired but difficult to obtain. 

In stormy weather closes in as tightly and as 
cozily as a coupe. Instantly converted into an 
open roadster. Lots of room under rear—and 

Body is similar in design to that of the new Reo 
Six roadster. Seats three full grown adults 

Your local Reo dealer will give you full spec- 
ifications and show you the car. 

Reo low maintenance cost is a feature of this

We Reo Folk are just a little conceited about 
this model—we think it sets a new standard not 
only in value but in appearance. 

It's a genuine four-passenger roadster, too. 

Driver's seat is located several inches forward 
of the main seat. This latter accommodates two 
liberally, and without interfering with the driver. 

Then there is an auxiliary seat which folds neatly 
under the cowl when only three are present—— 
but when needed for a fourth is ready on the instant. 

We experimented with various “clover leaf” 
and other types but finally decided on this body 
as being at the same time the most comfortable, 
practical and graceful in outward appearance. 

Output of these roadster models is limited and 
demand—seems— almost unlimited. Your order 
must be in your Reo dealer's hands well in 
advance of date you want your roadster delivered.

“ee | The Goodyear Conquest 

Detroit A 

~ = Vy a a — | 

Lead in the Nation 
As in the Cities 

Detroit and Los Angeles-—both automobile centers—are unanimous 
in their preference for Goodyear Tires 

Che birthplace of the industry, Detroit remains the home of the 
leading motor car manufacturers of America wens combined 
output constitutes the bulk of this country’s annual production 

It is said that, in proportion to its population los Angeles has 

more motor cars in use than any other city in the world 

One reflects, largely, the opinions of manufacturers; the other, the 
opinions of owners 

In the case of Goodyear Tires, there is not the slightest difference 
ot thought between the two classes 

Our tire census of Detroit and Los Angeles shows that in each city 
Goodyear is favored with a record of 23 per cent 

And this condition is not peculiar to Detroit, or to Los Angeles, or to 
almost any other city we should name 

It is a national condition. It affects all parts of the country 

The people at large, by their voluntary buying of Goodyear Tires 
have made it plain that they prefer Goodyear Tires above all 

Without regard to the cars they own, hundreds of thousands of 
motorists—in the cities and towns and on the farms—buy 
Goodyear Tires because they last longer and give less trouble, and 
because they know that in the end Goodyear Tires cost less 

The reasons for this lower cost of Goodyear Tires are found in their 
quality and construction 

Goodyear No-Hook Tires are built with five features which guard 
against the five great causes of tire deterioration 

They are fortified against rim-cutting by our No-Rim-Cut featur 
against blow-outs by our On-Air cure; against loose treads' by 
our rubber rivets against insecurity by our multiple braided 

} , 
plano wire base; and against puncture and skidding by our 

double-thick All-Weather tread

The one weak point in the situation af

that when the stimulus of war orders ceases 
the railroads will once more suffer from the

We cannot have a continuance of the up- 
ward movement in Wall Street until the 
railways ire put on a better basis The 
farmers are prosperous, industrial workers in 
nearly every field are fully emploved and the 
railways alone continue to suffer This 
means that the million persons who hok

ers of the railroads are far fr satistied 
with the outlook. More than this it m s 
that capital for the improvements and ex

Hi New York Victoria Oil is a speculative

better to buy a dividend-paying oil stock even if 

you bought fewer shares

They are paying no dividends and are still specu 

r., Trotwood, Ohio: Neither the Coey Motor 
Company nor the Farmack Motor Corporation has

stocks are both speculations 

Ww Rockford, Ill The Curtainless Shower Co 
is engaged in legitimate business but has not yet 
paid dividends It would be safer to buy dividend- 

paying stocks 

S., Missouri: United Profit Sharing declined 
because of opposition on the part of merchants to 
the scheme It does not look like a good speculative 


L. D. N., Cincinnati Many persons have been 
duced to invest in land schemes in Florida only to

H., Sussex, N. J The Argentine 6 per cents are

buy the stock 

C., Albany, N. Y.: One runs a good deal of risk 

now in buying stocks of new film companies 
There is growing competition in this fleld and the 

stocks of the various companies (including Federal 

Films) are highly speculative 

W . Williams, Iowa: The Double Service Tire & 
Rubber Co. of Akron, Ohio, is comparatively new 

und I have no reports as to its business If the 
stock, as is claimed, is paying 80 per cent. there 
would be no need of offering it to the public

to straighten affairs, but the results remain to be 
Ss Nashville, Tenn No mining stock can be 

onsidered a really safe investment Afterthought 
Copper, quoted at 5 times par, has lost much of its 
speculative chances. The issue of mortgage bonds 
makes the stock less desirable. It would be safer 

to take a profit 

K., Huntington, W. Va.: 1. Cosden Oil is selling 

at over three times par and while insiders are ad- 

vertising its purchase some of them are liquidating

considerable rise and is still speculative Southern 

Railway is a fair long-pull speculation 

N., East Troy, Wis« The Soo Line is controlled 
by the Canadian Pacific It pays 7 per cent. on 

both common and pfd. The common sells at about 

$124 and the pfd. at about $135. The market prices

not great, though as investments the stocks are

G., Millvale, Pa.: 1. Miami Copper, with its 100 
per cent dividend on par ($5) is, with the price of 
copper so high, still a fair speculation, but insiders

(These few lines and notes of music were addressed by Jenny Lind to her poet 
friend Bayard Taylor, and are among the most precious souvenirs in existence, 

Jenny Lind singing at Castle Garden in 1851. 

All that remains of Jenny Lind is her picture, her autograph, and memories dear to all who ever heard her sing. 

Her greatest charm—her wondrously sweet and melodious voice—is gone forever. 

How different had she lived in the present day! 

‘The Victrola would have preserved her beautiful voice to posterity, just as it has Tamagno’s, Plancon’s, Gerville-Reache’s, Gilibert’s; just as it 
does the other great singers of the world. 

You can hear them today on the Victrola whenever you wish; and generatiori after generation will keep on 
hearing them though the artists themselves will be forever silent. 

Any Victor dealer in any cit) in the world will gladly play any music you wish to hear and demonstrate the various 
styles of the Victor and Victrola—$1o to $400.
