The insurance protection it furnishes is cheaper to the policy holder, year by year, than that of any other permanent' f o r m . Hence for the man who needs protection, and intends to use the institution of Life Insurance for that end to its fullest capacity--to get all the benefit out of it that his money will secure--for that man the "Ordinary Life" is unquestionably the best. It contains everything that any other policy has in direct proportion to premium paid.
