"LONG AS SHE

"Insurance Insurance, " or "Monthly Insurance," Is New Science in
Family's Protection, Taught by Experiences of Past.
BY H. C. FETSCH.
INCOME insurance is not altogether
new, We have had it for some 20
years past, but we have been asleep.
Jf not, why this clarion call and con
centrated effort to sell real life Insur
ance, this new family service of life
Insurance men sold the old forms in
the past because they and many of the
companies knew no better. Now, how
ever, with this new service we haven't
that excuse. We usually sell that which
we understand and which we believe
in. We only have lately begun to un
derstand the income feature of life in
surance. It is reported that one of the big
life insurance companies has followed
up its death losses of $5000 or more.
The result of this investigation brings
put the astounding fact that after
seven years 90 per cent of the benefi
ciaries have vloat or spent the entire
proceeds of the insurance and in 10
years' time all or 100 per cent of the
Beneficiaries have lost or spent the
entire proceeds, .
In this -modern ase we nave an tne
types of insurance. Foremost of all
life insurance. Then follow fire, health,
accident, marine, boiler, plate glass
and many others. And now we add
another which I am pleased to call In

can now insure insurance, inn i

Let me submit a few figures. A policy
of $3000 In any American oia line com

for 13 years. By way of comparison,
n.tria. n 110.000 nolicy. The com
pany owes $10,000 cash at death. In
lieu thereof it will pay $652 a year for
20 years. Payments are increased by
surplus interest dividends in some of
the companies. -
The earnings on $10,000 at 5 per cem
are $500 annually. The difference be
tween this and $652 is $152, or 30 per

rudely from our pleasures and our

Death seems to us when we take
time to think of It at all. as a horrible
catastrophe that will probably - over
take us when we are very old, but we
think that perhaps by that fime we
won't mind so very much, and so the
thought that suddenly, any minute, we
may be called, is pushed, far from us,
and dwelt upon only in the darkness of
a sleepless night.
For the success of our work In the
world and perhaps too tor our cheer
fulness it is probably as well that this
is so; we might lose ambition entirely
if we were always listening for the
summons, thinking nothing at all worth
while, except perhaps preparation for
a future life, forgetting that our best
preparation for that is in the right liv
ing now. But, on the other hand, could
we more fully realise the thought of
death, how differently we would order
our lives and how much more care we
would take to see that the future of
our dependent ones was Becure.
This sure coming some day of the
dread visitor is. of course, the strong
est arrow in the insurance man's quiv
er, for there isn't a husband or father
anywhere who does not hope or ex
pect to make some sort of provision
for his family. There are thousands
3t men with no property and unin
sured. Every blessed man expeots
to attend to the matter "some
day." He sees men dying all around
him, many of them with no warning
whatever, but it doesn't really come
home to his Inner consciousness that
be may be next, that he may be called
before the provision for his family is
made. It is the part of the insurance
agent to help to bring this realisation
home. Protection la the prime reason
for insurance, founded on love of fam
ily and of homo and the desire to take
care of one's own, not savings, not in
vestment, not anything else but pro
tection. Therefore the insurance agent
has man's primal instinct to appeal to.
an Instinct almost as deeply rooted in
his nature as the Instinct of self-preservation.
For the family is a unit and
it is hjs own for whom he desires to
It Is a well-known fact that no one

more that he might have left them bet

.The insurance mar, ig bo prophet of
evil, no bearer of ill tidings; rather is
he the exponent of the gospel of love
and care and rather does be open the
door to the easiest way to show this
love and care, and make provision for
dependent ones, but there would sure

made with the main line or the Norm

East Thirtieth street, on the north

likely that the Hullivan's Gulch one
