Every invalid who can read will understand the plain directions in his own language, which are folded round the pills, which should be taken in the doses and at the times distinctly specified therein, while great attention should be paid to diet and many minor matters, all of which, however, are important, inasmuch as they angment the curative powers of the pills, prevent them from disagreeing with the most delicate, and spare time and suffering.
REPORT OF THE DIRECTORS. For the Year and Quinquennium ending 30th June, 1867, read at the ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING of
PROPRIETORS, 9th August, 1867. GEORGE RUSSELL, ESQ., Chairman of the Company, in the Chair.
The Report which the Directors have now to make to the Proprietors has ref-rence not only to the progress of the Company during the past year, but also to the more important consideration of its financial condition at the close of another quinquennium, and of the long term of Sixty years from the date of its establishment.
As regards the progress of the Company during the Year, it may be sufficient to state that the ordinary Receipts and Payments have been augmented by those of another small Assurance Society, the business of which has been transferred to the Eagle in this interval. Thus, the total Premiums received have
been £397,533, and the Interest from Investments, 2123.852 ; whilst, on the other hand, the Claims on decease of Lives Assured have amounted to £307,016, and the Expenses of Blanagement to £16,923_this last sum including €3,909, which will, for the most part, now cease.
An exception to this general augmentation is to be found in the case of the Premiums on New Assurances, which have amounted to £15,101-a less sum than they have reached in foregoin? years.
Adverting now to the results of the quinquennial investigation, which has been in progress for several months, and which has been conducted with au due care and circumspection, it appears, from the Actuary's statement, that there were in force on the 30th June last, the following Policies, viz. :
16.882 participating, assuring, with additions, 23,305,962, and paying Premiums amounting to 2274,517 per Annum;
And 4,096 non-participating, assuring £3,709,743, and paying Premiums amounting to £112,319 per Annum. The total amount Assured in these two classes_viz., £13,015,705_together with some annuities, is found, by the minute and laborious processes used in such investigations, to involve an immediate liability of £6,211,830.
The total Annual Premium receivable-viz., 238,836-—is shown, by the like processes, to be now worth £1,506,168, or nearly 12 years' purchase.
The net Liability arising under these large items_-viz., 21.738,669-is included in the following statement, which has been verified by the Auditors, and which comprises all the realised and unrealised Assets of the Company, and also all cluims ugainst it, immediate or remote. LIABILITIES. £ 8. d.

eighteen months only in which they have accrued. The Directors consider that these results are satisfactory, and they trust that the Proprietors will be of the same opinion, looking at the progress which the Company has made during the last twenty years, and the position which it has now attained, they feel themselves jusiified in anticipating that its future career will be a successful one. They will only add, that they hope in a few weeks to be enabled to remove from their Temporary Officer to the new premises in Pall Mall, and thenceforth to have more suitable accommodation for the carrying on of the Company's business than it has been their good fortune of late years to enjoy.
