H. Surrender of Bonus for Value in Cash.
According to this method, if the person assured does not. wish the sum in his Policy increased, he may surrender the Bonus, and take its value in cash; that is, instead of the amount being paid with the sum assured at death, such a sum will now be given as the Directors may consider equivalent to it in present value.

wou.k* he given for a surrender of the Bonus of £873, while the Policy will continue to receive its share of profits, at future investigations, as if the surrender had not taken place.
***" -Application of the Bonus to the Extinction of Annual

He pays a premium of £d7 7s. bd. but wishes to apply the Bonus in extinction of the Annual Payment. His age being 65 last birth-day, he can redeem his future Premiums by surrendering £578 14*. 9d. of his Bonus, leaving ±,04ps. 6d. to be paid along with the sum assured at death, and will receive further additions at each Investigation he may survive.
XV. Select Assurances.
The public are indebted to this Company for the introduction of new and important benefits in the practice of Life Assurance. A Standard Policy which has existed for Five Years is admissible to a class of Select Assurances ;" and in that class all Policies are unchallengeable on any ground of objection whatever. The Directors have also made provision, in connexion with that class, for relieving the Assured Tvho have no prospect of going abroad, from the usual irkome restrictions as to residence beyond the limits of Europe. Persons lending money on the security of Policies, Marriage, Trustees, and, in short, all who rely on the security afforded by Life Assurance, cannot fail to appreciate these new and important advantages.
