THE PYRAMIDS OF PROGRESS
A Four Years of Record Breaking Progress, Such as has never Been Equaled in Old Line Life Insurance History.
Admitted Net Assets
The chronicle of the first four years' experience of the National Loan and Trust Co., is without a
parallel iu the history of life underwriting. '
The National Life and Trust Company issued a greater number of policies to Iowa people than a uy
company operating in the state, except industrial Companies, and leads every company in the state in
new premium income. In short, the National Life and Trust Company has so far out-stripped all com
petitors, that today, it has only its own record to beat, ."ever so strong, never so successful.
A contract in the National Life and Trust Company, running 20. 30, 40 or 50 years, is as certain of
maturing at one hundred cents on the dollar as one falling due tomorrow.
Men of integrity can be profitably employed in any one of twenty-five states, embracing the choicest
territory in various parts of the U. S.
All approved forms of regular Life, limited Payment Life, Endowment and Investment Policies, em
bracing nearly fifty different onus of contracts issued by this company. A roster of policies that for
simplicity, equity and liberality of conditions to the policy holders, are unsurpassed.
THE NATIONAL LIFE AND TRUST COMPANY,
Offers the "Best Insurance in the World," in Life, Limited Payment Life and Investment Endowment Insurance,
well to investigate this Company's line of policies, and consider carefully before making engagements for 1903.
