TENNESSEE LEADS IN REPORT.
A bulletin from the office -of the
Standard Life Insurance Company at
Atlanta, Ga., for the week ending
Feb. 3rd, shows that the state of
Tennessee led last week in the
amount of policies written. This
state, through its several agents, of
which Dr. J. E. Wallace of this city
is one of the representatives. Mr. B.
M. Roddy and Mr. G. W. Adkins of
Memphis are the otheV two "reports
$25,2"j0 worth of policies for the past
week, enabling the volunteer state to
take the lead in so far as Standard
Life reports are concerned, for the
first time since the certificates were
issued to do business in this state.
The return of Dr. Wallace from East
Tennessee where he has been for the
Past month, brought renewed lire ana
more matured plans for a vigorous
campaign in Middle Tennessee, whicli
is to extend back East to the border
of Virginia. "We want to teach our
people the advantages to be derived In
throwing a safeguard and protection
around their families by taking a
policy in the Standard Life Insurance
Company, whicli is the only proper
thing for a man or woman to do who
wishes to leave their dependent ones
In a good shape, even though they
die," declared Dr. Wallace to a Globe
representative. He continued by say
ing he had just been surprised be
yond his ability to express at the
hearty reception that the Standard
Life had been given in upper East
Tennessee. "Bristol is one town is
Tennessee where there Is co-operation
in its tallest sense on the part of
the colored people under the leader
ship of Mr. Robt. Clay and the men
bers of the Business League", declai
ed Mr. Wallace.
