Refuge Ass-uranee Co mpany Ltd. INCREASED PREMtUM REVENUE E134,000 OVER PREVIOUS YEAR. To prove that our nation is gradually b- om- ing more and more thrifty, one has only to olancc at the work accomplished by tho leading Industrial Insurance Offices year by year. The Refuge Assurance Company, -whose balance sheet is printed in another column, has, despite the depressed state of trade, had au excellent year. The income from premiums alone amounts to E2,601,230, which is over L134,000 more than that received during the preceding year. The. ramifications of its business extend to nearly 'every village and hamlet in Great Britain, and it certainly holds a very high position in the confidence of the people. Its claims for the vear amounted to £ 1,131,426- It tfOuld be impossible to judge with any degree of accuracy the amount of suffering and sorrow that has been Softened and alleviated by the payment of this huse sum in the hour of trial and bereavement. Since the inception of the Company it haa paid away in claims, over 13 million pounds; truly a stupendous record. It is worthy of note that locally in South Wales, the Company paid in claims last year £ 69,000. The bonus in the ordinary branch, on with-prout policies is well maintained, and a substantial surplus has been carried forward, which virtually guarantees the maintenance of the bonus at this high standard. No disaster of any magnitude involving the loss of life, occurs, but what the Corupaný is called upon to pay claims in con- sequence. The recent sad disaster of the Manx mail-boat, "Ellftu Vannin," which was wrecked in the Mersey last December, is still fresh in our memories, and this involved the Refuge in seven claims, amounting to £ 315. The colliery explosion at Deri, near Bargoed. in the fall of last year, also produced twelve claims, amounting to 24.01. One of the outstanding features of the Company is its promptness in paying its legiti- inat-o without any irksome formalities åud to thig much of its success is attributed. Its solidarity is beyond question, as the total, funds stand close npon seven million pounds, having.been increased Iflst year by considerably over half-a-millioit pounds. Another special feature in -th* fever-increasing amount of endoiv- monfc assurance transacted, being a sort of savings bank combined with insurance pro- tection. The business in this branch is going u o by leaps and hounds which says much for the 'thrifty habits of our population. The Refuge" is what its name implies, n vorititble olac.e of safety, and is destined to become, a mighty power in the Insurance World.
