You most likely believe in fire insurance and in many
other kinds of protection such as having a supply of fuel on
hand in the winter time a supply of provisions and a little sur
plus of money within your reach, with which to buy anything
that you might need. Thfis is all forethought or protection.
Now, is not Life the most precious of all human possessions
the most indispensable cleaieui of a husines.-. career? The bankrupt of
today may next year be on his feet again, busy and thrifty us ever if
he lives: but Death is the one interruption to an active career which is
inevitably final. And Death strikes wherever he will, often sparing
the decrepit and debilitated to smite the stvudy and vigorous. There
