Security Mutual Life
Insurance Co.



/^^HE SECURITY MUTUAL LIFE was
\^i/ incorporated October 6, 1886, to do
business upon the mutual plan, and
commenced operations January 3, 1887, the
first quarterly premium of $18.90 on policy No.
1 being the first asset and the nucleus of its
present $10,240,000. The Company at the start
occupied two small rooms and had but two
employes in addition to the General Manager,
Charles M. Turner, who was the organizer.
The progress made has been steady, each year
showing nice additions to the amount of assets
held the preceding year. At the close of the
first year the Company had a little over $1,-
000,000 insurance in force and $15,000 in as-
sets after paying its first death claim of $1,000,
the policy being issued on the 8th day of De-
cember, 1887, and delivered on the 10th ; the
insured died of malignant diphtheria on the
17th and the widow had her money on the



24th. Since the payment of the first death
loss the Company has paid policyholders and
beneficiaries over $17,500,000. The Company
now has over $63,000,000 insurance in force,
$10,240,000 assets, with a surplus above all
liabilities of $269,000. The officers and direc-
tors are well known Binghamton men of first-
class reputation and business ability and the
Company is recognized by the Insurance De-
partments and the insurance fraternity gen-
erally as being a first-class institution giving
unquestioned protection to its policyholders
and according to all fair treatment and just
settlements. Since organization its death loss-
es have in the main been paid on the same day
they were approved. As an indication that the
Company is endorsed at home where it is best
known, the statement is made that during the
past year the local agency stood second on
the list of all the agencies in the twenty-five
states in which thev are doing business.

Establishing Themselves
at Home and Afar

Here is a motor truck that is carrying its good
name into all branches of Industrial Transportation.

It not only is the standard equipment of local con-
cerns — but is being adopted as such in many far-away
localities.

A truck creating a reputation which brings more
Larrabecs to a users' fleet — is a REAL motor tmick.
This is what Larrabee trucks are doing.

Years ago in this "Valley of Opportunity" Larra-
bee wagons were a transportation by-word, Deyo En-
gines were a sure thing in gasoline power. Today it's
trucks — the best that supreme engineering can produce.
This industry is destined to be one of Binghamton's
greatest.

A. L. DAVIS' SON, BINGHAMTON, N. Y.

One of the Largest Retail Farm Machinery and Supply Houses in the East



This business started in 1876 as a wagon repair shop, a few years later taking the agency
for mowers and grain binders ; other lines were added with such success that in 1914 the wagon
repair and paint shops were discontinued and the splendid facilities of the new building which
had been erected three years previous were devoted to the sale of farm machinery and other
supplies needed for farm operation.

The farms about Binghamton are hilly but very productive; the average size is less than
100 acres. There is a home market for all farm jiroducts at good prices. The majority of the
farmers do their own work with the help of their families. All these factors give a wonderful
opportunity for the sale of improved machinery and labor-saving devices. Two salesmen and
one machine expert are employed on the road. The lines handled besides regular farm machin-
ery comprise engines, tractors, water supply systems, electric lighting outfits, milking machines,
stoves, ranges, pipeless furnaces, power washing machines, barn equipment, field and garden seeds^
roofing, fencing, harness, robes, blankets, etc.

Every winter personal invitations are mailed to nearly 10,000 progressive farmers within
a radius of 50 miles to attend a three-day Agricultural Institute which is held in this building.
This event brings to the city 4,000 to 5,000 farmers and their families. Entertainment con-
sists of demonstrations of different farm machines, much of which is belted up and shown in
motion as in actual field work. Lectures on farm problems under the supervision of the Local
Farm Bureau— Free lunch of coffee, sandwiches and doughnuts— Distribution of about $400 in
prizes, besides cooking and baking lectures and demonstrations for the ladies. This aflfair has
developed from a small beginning nine years ago into a real event in the lives of the farmers
of this section, being a combination of COUNTliV FAIR, SOCIAL GATHERING MACHIN
ERY DISPLAY and AGRICULTURAL INSTITUTE; and is a very important factor in showing
the people of the surrounding country the advantages in making Binghamton their shopping
center not only for farm machinery and supplies, but for everything they need. "
