An Investment that does not tnate in value Life Insiirance O WNERS of life tesrurance have had occasion recently to compare the stability of this foim cf investment with that of even the highest grade securities. A chart of the market price averages of Isading stocks for twenty years shows an irregular line that rises and dips, sometimes vertically, with L' peaks and valleys". There are no "depressions" in the investment values of life insurance policies. They do not fluc- tuate T nth business cycles. From year to year, the 44 million Metropolitan Life Insurance policies show z steady increase in values to policy-holdera The man who regularly invests part of hia earninrsjn Efe insurance can go to sleep each night' vith the knowledge that he is building an estate of the greatest security and with a sure investi aent return for every dollar paid' in. Li fe insurance is an investment whose value consta atly increases the longer it is kept in force.
