Que 1 particularly re member was that of a Mr. and Mrs Watenuan. .Mrs. Waterman held a poll cy ou tiia life nf her husband for (L'.tXX lu ihe company for which 1 was then adjuster. Waterman died very sud deuly, aud the physician wuo was call ed lu-be arrived after tli^iatient bad died- gave a certltlcate of death from heart disease, lie told me that the man had bo?n under his care for some time for valvular disease of the heart, and there could be no douUt as to the cause of deuth. He had expressed n wish to be burled in his native village lu the country, far from a railroad, and the body had beeu taken there be fore the claim was presented to our company. 1 didn't like to pay in such a case, bat Charley Dyke, our agent who issued the policy, said It would hurt his business If I didn't, so I handed over (2,0X1 and took Hie cus tomary receipt "Somo six months after ttie settle ment of this case I was in the otilce of a physician who was an examiner for another company. He was examining an applicant for Insurance, and when be had finished and the man went out the doctor said to me: '? 'I shall decline that r!.*k. The m. n has valvular disease of the heart.' " 'Better give me his name,' I said. 'He may apply to our company." " 'Enderberry.' he said. "I made a note of the name and re ported It at the office. But the man never applied to us? that Is, so far as I ever knew. "It was a year later, as near as I can remember, that Dyke came to ine and said be was troubled, als>ut the Waterman case. A few days before be bad met a man on the street in a distant city who resembled Waterman so strikingly that be (the agent) had gone up to him and addressed him as such. The man looked puzzled, then declared that bis name was not Wa terman. On being asked who be was be said he was John Enderberry. "Of course I was interested. Never theless I couldn't exactly make out a case between Waterman and Ender berry. In the first place. Dyke was not certain of the Identity between the man he had met and Waterman; in the sec ond place, 1 couldn't see how a man who was suffering from valvular dis ease of the heart could have secured a policy In our company. There was nothing for me to gain by Investigating the matter, so 1 let It drop, assuring Dyke that l^e must have been mis taken. "Soon after this I left the company I had been with for so long and took a position with another. One day 1 was directed to go and adjust a loss of $2, 500 on a man of tlie name of r.rlck man, who was supposed to have died of heart disease. 1 was told that the widow had beeu so shocked at weeing her husband drop dead before her that she was confined to her room ancj. kept under the Inlluence of sedatives. 1 suppose It was an uncertainty 1 con stantly felt regarding the Waterman claim that induced me to take a look at the deceased. When 1 did so 1 was astonished. The glimpse I hud got in the doctor's otilce of the man culled Enderberry was sufficient to cause me to remember him. It seemed to me that the ashen face before me was the face of this man. "At any rate 1 determined to pro!>e the matter. I told the doctor that I fancied the man wag not dead, hut la declared that he was. 1 Insisted on an. autopsy. to which the widow consent ed. This staggered me, nnd 1 conclud ed to forego the examination. Instead I wired Dyke to come down. When lie came he declared the dead man was Waterman, alias Enderborry, alias Brickuian. I told the doctor to go on with the autopsy, which he did. "I stood by during the operation and expected at the first Incision to see the man start up or at least blood to flow. Neither occurred. The doctor told me that he had discovered a very singular malformation of the heart, such as he had never seen before, but had read of In medical books, fie described It to me, using medical nomenclature, but 1 could neither understand It nor remem ber the terms. "There remained one more precau tion. That was for Dyke to see the woman. He had known Mrs. Water man and could Identify her In case she was getting life Insurance through dif ferent husbands. He went upstairs to her room unannounced, opened the door, and there sat the Widow Water man. "The explanation? It was this: Wa terman? Trumball was his real name had been getting life insurance policies under different names for compara tively small amounts for a long while. The heart formation from which he suffered would occasionally throw him Into a condition which could not be easily distinguished from death and in which he remained long enough to be pronounced dead. After one of these attacks It occurred to him to take out life Insurance in amounts so small that they would be paid without spe cial investigation. At times the man would pass the examination without his heart trouble being detectoil; at other times it would be apparent and the risk declined. "However, he was now' dead and no mistake. I sent receipts to bis wife by Dyke for her to sign, which she did without making any claim, and I never said anything about the matter except to the manager of the company last in terested." .WILLIAM GOULD PRlCnAItD.
