he tells the following stories:
"There -ls a form of stage humor
which has always been popular, in
America, and perhaps Is an expres
sion of a national trait. It consists
of the joke which is made by thc ac

The business man protects himself ;ag?inst the loss of1 his
factory by means of lire insurance. For reasons much mow
imperative he should insure his family, against the ?oss of his
producing power by life insurance. The factory may never
burn, but the man will die. Though the factory, should bum
uninsured, the owner might live to accumulate property ,worth
many times, its value. But if the man dies' uninsured *fls
family suffers an absolute and irreparable loss. Only through
life insurance can this consequence be avoided. Life insur
ance does not insure life, but it does insure the productive
value of a life, and it affords the only means possible for the
vast majority of men to continue an adequate provision for
their families after they themselves are dead. This is not
only possible, but it. is a duty. Thc law requires a man to
provide Ipr his wife and children, and the highest sentiments
of noble manhood demand that he should also make provision
for his widow and orphans.
