A SAFE INVESTMENT
INVESTORS TROUBLES Those who depend for life's comforts and necessities upon the interest of invested capital are never quite free from anxiety. A mortgage or a bond can mature, when the money received by the owner must be quickly reinvested; dividends on stock unexpectedly shrink and the diminished resources do not suffice; a safe may not endure the heat of a burning building and the valuable securities within may be reduced to worthless ashes. Many such possibilities worry those who live upon the income from investments.
AN INVESTMENT THAT STANDS Those who place money in an annuity of the American Bible Society have an investment that does not require a change every few years, of which the income does not shrink, and of which the capital cannot burn up. Money given to the American Bible Society on condition of receiving a fixed annuity for life is kept apart and specially invested throughout the lifetime of the donor. It is as safe as human wisdom can make it.
BESIDES STABLE INCOME A BENEFICENT WORK
Furthermore this sort of a conditional gift to the America Bible Society, besides assuring the donor a fixed income, do a most beneficent work after this income is no longer requir It is used, after the donor has passed away, for God's work spreading the Holy Scriptures among all nations. Ask details of this safe method of investment from WILLIAM FOULKE, TREASURER, AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY,
