XIIIS Institution, which has bee\i established nearly fifty years, offers to- Ministers peculiar' facilities for providing; an AN- ITY for a WIDOW, of from £ 10 to' £ -50. Its capital of £ 22,000, which is yearly increasing, has been raised, not by shares borrowed, bearing interest; but, with the exception of a few Legacies-, from the subscriptions of its members. It will be seen by a reference to the annual reports, that the business of the soci- ety is conducted at a comparatively small cost; and as no profits are made by any pin-ties, aH- the advantages arising from improved ft nan cos are shared by all its members, either by increase of annuity or reduction- of premium the increase on the former amounting. in the last few years, according to length- of membership, to 20, 40, and 60 per cant. .The premiums are calculated on the most mode- rate scale, consistent with the financial safety of the Society. The law which provides that a member leaving no widow, the sum of fr'Mi £ 100 to £ 400, according to the amount of annuity" slnJl be .paid to his child or children, of whatever age,- is a guarantee that the sum he contributes must ultimately benefit his family, r. No fee is demanded on admission beyond one year's premium |; paid in advance, which is carried to the individual's credit, and his I beneficiary interest commences the moment such payment is made, r, To families, where there was no widow, various suns, from £ 100 to £ 320 have been paid, amounting, almost in all cases, to consider- ably more than the premium1 paid.

John Hunt, Secretary, 14, Brixton-rise, Surrey, who is to be seen at the Office, No. 7, Blomfield-street, Fins bury, every Tuesday morning, from eleven till- one o'clock. NEW WEEKLY JOURNAL.
