Watson, who was not a participant in
the game of cards, but looked over
the shoulders of the players nnd made
remarks about their hands.

temper and struck Watson; that Ben
Hanna drew his pistol, and the battle
then became general. Both the Han

A Letter from a Fortunate Holder of an "Elective Policy"
Containing the Disability Clause:
Greenwood, S. C, October 24th, 1911.
Southeastern Life Insurance Company,
Greenville, S. C.
Gentlemen:?I wish to thank you for the prompt manner in which
you placed into effect the Disability Clause in policy No. 2026 held
by my biother, Mr. Chas. a. Cobb, of Abbeville, S. C.
Some time ago he was paralized, and although not confined to
his bed, is totatly, and I fear, permanently disabled, and in no condi
tion now financially, to keep up his insurance, one premium being due
in the next few days.
Under this Disability Clause you have agreed to pay his premiums
while the disability lasts, and his family is protected for the full
amount of the Policy, $5,000.00, without further payment of premi
ums on his part.
I cannot speak too highly of your Company, and of this splendid
feature of your Elective Policies. I congratulate you on the great
progress you are making, and do not wonder that you are gaining the
confidence and patronage of such a host of our people.
Again thanking youy and with best wishes, I am,
Very truly yours,
(Signed) F. B. COBB.
