tion. Head of the household, can you face
your family with an easy conscience
when you go home at night?
As you look around the supper table
and think of the future, as well as the
present, requirements of those who
depend upon you, what kind of a feel
ing does it give you? Suppose you
were suddenly called by death, how
would they be left as to money re
sources? You cannot vindicate your right to
be called the protector of your wife
and children unless you extend your
protection into that unknown future In
which you may have no living part.
For if you were not here tomorrow
the needs of your dependent family for
food, clothing, shelter, education, pos
sibly for expensive medical treatment,
would be the same as they are today.
The answer to this is, put money
In to the savings bank regularly, insure
your life and be on the lookout for
good, safe investments for your sav
ings as they accumulate.
It makes you shudder to think of all
that might happen if you were to pass
away without having made proper pro
vision for the dear ones you would
leave behind. .
Then waste no time In taking the
proper steps to secure this protection
which is expected of you and concern
ing which your conscience will give
you no peace until it is provided.
The man who has built up a good
bank account from part of his earn
ings can go home after his day's work
and greet his loved ones with a smile
because he knows that they are safe,
no matter what happens to him.
