killing Marion Sebastian was taken to Frankfort a few days since Tudor is in wretch cj health and was unable to be moved sooner We un derstand an effort to secure a pardon isbaing made Fight at Stanford A special from Stanford says that on Tuesday morning Jesse Rout a saloon keeper disputed with Mayor J N Mpnefee over a charge that fye made in the Council when the latter drew a knife and plunged it into the left side of Rout who was saved only by a thick book that he hid in his pocket Rout got hold of a hatchet but was disarmed bafore he could use it Board of Supervisors The board of supervisors has bean in session all week but will not corn plete their work until tomorrow Sat urday A member of the board told TIlE RECORD that the indications were that they would raise the list fully 100000 This is a big amount but the board is composed of careful men and what they say will doubtless stick Who Will it Be The term of Postmaster Hamilton expires next month and the people are guessing who the successor will be Shugars still beliaves his prom ises will hold and is very confident West says nothing wood while Harris wears a confident smile This is the situation in a nutshell and from the present outlook its impossi ble to tell which one will be invited to stick his shins under Mr JtfcKinleys remedy n MID JjUqiEs Agt business and issawing peoplebelieve piecounter i ff Dull Court Day at Danville The present city ordinance has was no stock worth talking about on the market Monday and busincss gen erally was dull although the circuit court brought a good many people to town It is thought that before the next court day the council will repeal the law keeping the cattle away from Main street A Stitch In Time There should be some arrangement whereby the fire alarm could be from the outside and the Court House door locked at ni ht It stands open and parties go there to drnk smoke or do anything they choose A match or c gar stub carelessly drop ped will some night set fire to our handsome Temple of Justice and de stroy it It is qut qf the question to lock the door whle the fire alarm re mains inside so why not fa the portico and fi vn the bull ling every night Eh Judge IJurnside highin worked ion Many flutes In cutting the combination out of J M Higginbothams sae which was dynamited not long since George Wright the mechanic had to drill fiftytwo Ijolfis Tlia shot completely scattered the lock and inside of the door and the front so bady that a new doqr had to be ordered Mr WriglJt is a number one workman and notwithstanding the many holes drilled soon had the lock out No clew has been obtained as to who the cracksmen were nor do we suppose there eyer win be George Is Getting There A Frankfort special says Senator George T Farris of Lancaster is being quietly groomed by his friends for the race for the Democratic nomi nation for Register of the Land Office lIe is said to haye expressed a to fiU niohe in the next ticket and the Senate out of defer ence to him may not pass the bill abolishing the office at the end of the present term even if the House does so Unless this Legislature abolishes the office it will of course last for four years after the expiration of th term of the present incumbent Another PJke The Fiscal Court has bought the old Danville road at the committees including half the Dx river bridge at 1535 This leaves only thi e roads collecting toll viz the Richmond Stanford and the Crab Orchard These do not want to the committees pros and as the court has agreed to go on that price only the hitch comes The county now owns to date 53 miles for which it gave or has promised to give 20915 an av erage of about oGJ per mile The three remaining rqqds consist of about 07 or 38 miles All parties interested will meet with the Court today and fix up tIle d eds notes etc Prospects for Improvement A city official told a RECORD man the other day that therj was a strong probability that the town and county vvoull in the spring unite and tear jiway the old workhouse building and vepluce it with a new one which would be a credit to the community This should by all means be done As the old thing now stands it is not only an eyesore Lut a great danger to the county jail which is only a few feet distant It is a fire trap of the most dangerous kind and is wholly unfit for people to enter Rats and vermin line the walls and floors while there are cracks in he sides large enough to pitch dog through It has been abandoned and now stands one of the greatest nuisances in the town Should it burn it would be next to im possible to save the county jail Accidental Shooting sprung upthis non ht the acc p S excellent willingness figures While handling a 38 Colts revolver in Logan Robinsons store Monday night Will Ward shot and badly wounded Wm Broaddus They are boys and were in the back of the store Ward was trying to put a Smith Wesson cartridge into a Colts pstol when Broaddus stepped up and warned him to be careful about it The ball entered Broaddus right groin and Dr Kinnaird cut it out on the opposite side The physician thinks that while the wound is very painful and troublesome that it will not prove fatal Broaddus was re moved to Dave Ross residence over the jail and everything is being done for his comfort He is a son of George Broaddus and a peaceful and quiet boy regrets tha affair more than Ward as the two boys were great friend Good for Garrard R L Elkin of this county was very fortunate in his poultry exhibit al Louisville last week His fowls are the Black Minorca are beau ties Hegot five premiums out of six entries and considering the fact that there were fowls on hand from all the United States this is quite a feather in Bobs cap His premiums were as follows For pullet he was a tie with one other exhibitor score 95 and third prize in same ring score 94 points hen he secured second ing it all together the Garrari mm came out flying bothmere Noone breedand OVl r pulLet gettingscoringbirds colors A Good Idea We understand the County Court is talking of placing electric lights in the circuit court room As it is now the room is as dark as a dungeon and the only way any light is made at all is by means of a few rickety lamps which are more than likely to fall or explode and burn the handsome building The cost of putting in the wires bo as much as twill cost to buy new oil lamps which will have to be done before next circuit court Wo under stand also that special arrangements can be made with the elecric light people whereby the county will only be charged for the lights when act ually in use Thus it seen that the cost of electricity is not as much as oil and the building is fire from that cause As its cheaper and safer there should be no advancement o public good willnot i absolutelysafe rom gasbagsthat Rig Court at Danville Circuit court convened at Danville Monday with a large docket to be triel The A Ivocate says Judge San lcy delivered to the grand jury the most vigorous charge heard in the the toilgate raiders lie insisted that the sit this matter to the bottom and spare no man whom damaging evidence was found He showed where the mob spirit would undermine tlvi very foundation of the government and said that the responsibility rested with the people themselves Had tho public senti nent in this and other counties been strong enough there would have been very few raids Such outlaws can be caught if the people want to catch them said Judge Saufloy Turnpike property has the same right as any other property and no man has a right to destroy it or acquire it without due legal processes Cal Guither Hot Some confusion has been caused in he Second Rgiment K S G over ha placing of cilLcrd in charge at the Danville tollgate It seems that Gjn Collier asked Col Gaither to put Lieut Sharpley of Frankfort on duty as he sharpley was idle Col Gaither re used to do so saying that Sharpley vas too hasty and otherwise to place over the men A report has since been started to the effect that Col Gaither had placed a non commissioned officer over the men and Gaither believes Sharpley started the report J his made Col Gaither angry and he has issued an order relieving Sharpley from any connection with the regiment Those acquainted with B I Gaither know that ho is too strict i disciplinarian and two well up in matters to ever place a noncom mission man over troops on duty where they are more than likely to be called upon to fire on men A tenyearold boy would know better than that and lever E Is friends will never believe that he d d thing Fix for Them Since last issue of TIlE RECORD we have heard many reports of visits to residences in town by burglars Only in a few instances have they succeeded in entering houses but they are cer tainly abroad in the land and the should prepare and sleep with one eye open Do no shooting to scare but drill a hole through the trifling hide of the first one heard prowling about your premises It has been reported that the 1S9S burglar usually chloroforms his vctims and some believe it was done here last week This makes it all the more that a strict lookout should be kept The general belief is that the present work is being done by lo cal talent who wero prompted by the work done on IlSggiubothams sae The rascals know that the town has no police protection during the middle of the night and that they have all chances of escaping if they only get out of a mans house Now the thing to do is buy a good pistol lay it handy and let drive at the first sonofagun you hear Shoot to hit take no

BY V Publisher cK jouis ZAYDRA TERMS MONTHS THREE 100 FRIDAY January 21 1898 TILE present session of the Kentucky legislators has far surpassed the and hopes of the pople by to the business for whch they were elected Not much bragging is being done by the press yet as it Ins been fooled so many times heretofore by sessions which startel out very promising and wound up in a complete failure We believe however that the present ag gregation will succeed in passing many measures that will be of creat benefit to the people and that the members will not do like many other3 elected to office forget that they are the servants and the people the masters and consider themselves masters and the people the servants Many elected to office do crowd this foolish idea into their little craniums and the result is that they have to be relegated to the rear Whenever a man thinks him self much bigger or better than oth er people that mans pants arc as of striking the ceiling as a nickle is for a ginger cake As stated above we do not believe the present session is composed of a lot of conceited asses but theres no teliing how things turn out Let us hope for the best THE people of the nation will now breathe easier as a special to the dai lies announcs the important news that Dora Clay has returned to her husband Gen Cassius M Clay We have never known any affair to ba so completely run into the ground as has this separation The papers have pub lished every move made by both par ties and the way the country corres pondents have worked the dailies has been a sight to behold Of course Gen Clay is a prominent man but his pri vate affairs should not be picked to pieces like has been done in the past few months and such would not have been done had the old man been able to get about It is sad that when he saw Dora returning he ran her afar off fell on her neck and kiss ed her A choice piece of veal was or dered the ring placed upon her finger and the lion and the lamb lie down to gether so let us hope that the matter will be allowed to rest and the noble old man be permitted to spend his re maining days in that peace which he so richly deserves THE suggestion to publish the list of pensioners is a good one No honest soldier will object to have his name published to the world but on the other hand will be proud to be on what was intended for a roll of honor The kick will come from the coffee coolers and camp followers who were never near enough a battle to smell the smoke These latter should be purged from the lists and unless it is done the honest bonafide veteran will soon be ashamed to be on the rolls If the government would take the money it proposes to send to the fools who rushed into the Klondyke and use it in employing competent men to seek out the frauds on the pen sion roll it would be a move both wise and timely WILLIAM RKIXECKK a prominent Louisville man who was connected with the Kentucky Trust Company has fled for parts unknown leaving behind a letter stating that he had misappropriated 875000 of the compa nys funds Its the same old story lie had the money on his hands and it Losing on his first attempt he continued in the mad effort to win back and replace it The greed for money will make some men resort to most anything Reinecke al ways bore a good reputation for hon esty but in these days of rascality and mad desire to get money the people need not be surprised at anything SOME seem to think that in event of Uncle Sam helping Cuba and boxing little Spains jaws that England would pat the U S on the back and urge us on for the reason that it would place us under moral obliga tions to pay off Cubas great debt which she now owes It looks quite reasonable to believe this for John Bull hates Americans worse than the devil does holy water and you can bet your last chip that England will not do anything for us unless she sees something big coming to her in re turn Englands attitude toward us is what might be

IN PRESCRIPTIONS h 1 Lancaster r ABOUT THE FINNY TRJSE Strange Associations Among Fish That Would Seem to Indicate Friendship a large shark was cauglrt oj the coast not far from San Francisco and when it was hauled in shore several curious fishes were found clinging to it They were about a foot in length black and shining while the bead was curiously flattened having n plate upon it resembling a section of a Venetian blind This plate was a sucker and the fishes had fastened themselves tp the shark by it and could hardly be pulled away fish was the remora a curious member of the finny tribe invariably found with sharks and sometimes set consorting with large turtle and sheepshead What the relationship real ly is would be difficult to tell but tIQ shark apparently does not object and I so far as we know does not attempt to injure his attendants so it is fair assume that it is a case of friend shipIn watching sharks in deep water have always the reinoras swIm Pling alongside but the moment the shark was hooked they attached them selves by the sucking plate and as a rule came out of the wqter with their companion sacrificing their Jives rather than while thos which had not secured a hold swam about where the shark was pulled out evidently much disturbed The shark has another friend ip the little pilotfish a member of the mack erel family I have seen a dozen or more swimming about the head of a maneater darting off to every small object that met their eye or scent and returning to their big consort I have seen the pilot swim out ten feet to a floating dead fish and return tp the chark that was swimming on the upon which the latter would move in that direction This may have been a coincidence but serves the plan oJ friendship very well This association is so common among marine Iprms that it is difficult to disavp v tIlt idea of friendship and protection Up among the tentacles of the Portuguese manofwar which are so deadly that the slightest touch will kill a sardine I have found in the Gulf of Mexico numbers of little fishes allied to tile mackerel and qf the exaot tint of tin tentacles undoubtedly finding protec tion in this resemblance As I lifted up one of the menofwar by the taU the fishes darted about in great con fusion and returned immediately to their companion as I replaced it in the water and there was apparently some bond of friendship between them Nearly all the large jellyfisbes have their trains of finny courtiers in near ly every case allied to the mackerel family and probably born on the high seas so taking up with the umbrella like jelly for a protector The trepang the favorite fish of the celestials who spend 30000 annuall for this dainty affords protection to a small fish reef and noting a large trepang lifted it up when to my amazement out came a silvery tish so trans parent that print could almost be read through it I caught the curious vis itor and placed it in water where it swam about few minutes and then died This incident resuitf in the of other trepangs and 1 found that nearly all had an occupant In no instance did I see a fish return to its protector though the naturalists of the Naples aquarium have been sc fortunate curious to say the return being made tail first The presence of a sea anemone on the back of a crab might be cousideret an accidental occurrence but there is to believe there is a bone of friendship between certain Individ uals A distinguished German natural ist found in his explorations a large crab which bore upon one of its claws just at the joint a sea anemone the mouth of the latter being so situated that it fell just beneath the mouth o the crab when the latter was eating To prove whether the crab had any affection for his companion the took the crab and placed in a tank forcibly taking the anemone from the claw and dropping it in the water lIe supposed that the crab would be relieved but on the contrary it seemed to be disturbed and hunted around until it found the anemone into several pieces and scattered them about the tank returning after awhile to find that the crab hod collected every available piece and was evidently guarding them The experiment was tried with sev eral crabs with the same result would seem to show that between the crab and the anemone existed a bond of some kind This companionship is seen especially in Africa where nearly all the large animals have their bird companions On the black rhinoceros a white heron is often seen while on the oxen several birds take possession and when an enemy approaches they rise with loud cries warning their huge companion and many a hunter loses a good shot in this way The camel has a feathered friend that is often seen perched upon its ears ex amining the skin with great care and the moose has a good friend in the Can ada jay that roosts on its horns and back and gives warning of an enemy Among all the lower animals can be found these strange associations which considered as friendship or something else are none the less remarkable San Francisco Chronicle A NUI1 AN TEA cures Dyspep rWRIvl eia Indi gestion Regulates the Liver Price 25 eta e entIy to bi b surface ofanimals coral deli

unceasingly as founders of states She has not yet been seized with the weary satiety of overcivilization and feels a ure she adopts a child or a career and objectThehome and developing the country has been through her so thoroughly accom pUshed that with all our vast terri tory we have scarcely a district that might truly be spoken of as the This achievement liberates for other uses the energy of woman and true to the spirit of the times she casts about her for a career other than ft domestic one Even in the small towns of newlyset tied districts the daughters of the fam ivy do not settle down to an intermin able round of spiritless housework but instead start out with their brothers to are idle or fill the position of lady of leisure for such would be The women with genuine business ability test it in a small boat near shore and meeting success go further to venture more The woman with a tal cut or a voice migrates to a city for its cultivation and the old profession of teaching has its countless aspirants all eager to learn new meth ods Besides all these there are the young women who would lead a life of comfort at home in large places but who prefer the hazards ef selfsupport in the world to in a smaller sphere so there comes a dny when these too join the army thronging to the large cities The education of books and colleges is of primary importance in their minds just now but by and by they will real ize that the world bestows more of its wealth and that means power on those who possess knowledge of men and an ability to recognize opportunity when it is met and to seize it before it has fled Another lesson that the girl of the plains must learn is that manners and dress enhance what to sue cess she may possess and are not to be despised as evidence of decadence or effeteness All honesty is not rude and a polished manner enables one to meet on advantageous ground while a faulty manner is acceptable only to those whose ways are equally defectiveThe of refinement and civiliza lion but making all conform to given standards is to reduce all to the same mold The woman of the west need not fear that her rugged individuality will be thus obliterated for she lives too near to natures heart The free dom of the plains the large liberty of her native land have been infused into her blood and she will remain as she woman whose labor is the of thought whose opinions are the result of honest convictions and whoso love of self is lost in love of mankind and of country Harpers Bazar OYSTERS after they have been brought away from the sea

means of making the fortune that Mr Bailey is credited with possessing It was as a a baby phenomenon that that did the good turn for the success or of the great and only Baruuni Columbia Is the name of the creature and of the hundreds of rare animals in the aggregation none is treasured more highly than she now a huge ungainly mid overgrown creature with not half the wit possessed by the smallest ele pliant connected with the circus It was away back in 18SO when the news got around that the first elephant born in captivity was living and travel hug with the Barnum show Mr Bailey jas a struggling young circus owner 4 ien and battling against fearful odds Rarmmi was at the height of his re markable career at the very topmost notch of circus fame Mr Barnum quick to see the advan tuge of having so important an attrac tion as a real American baby elephant telegraphed to Mr Bailey as follows Will give you 100000 for your baby elephant Must have it Mr Bailey wired in answer Will not sell at any price This seemed a daring thing for Mr Bailey to do for 100000 would almost have purchased time entire show Mr Baileys best friends whom he con suited in the matter advised him to the offer Instead of doing that he refused it and hustled east to meet liarnum on his own ground By the time that the Bailey circus reached the east the whole country was billed with posters on which was print ed What Barnum Thinks of the Baby Elephant Underneath that heading was printed Barnutns telegram to Mr Bailey As the Bailey show followed in the wake of the Barnum circus each town in which time Barnum aggregation appeared was billed with the Bailey posters Probably the Bailey advertising did not affect the attendance at the Barnum circus Mr Bailey has since said that he thought it did not But the advertise ments staring the veteran showman in time face everywhere he went worried him and finally to dodge the huge posters he changed the route of his cir cus although that route had been de termined upon nearly 12 months in ad vance lIe jumped from New York to Kansas City and surrendered the whole eastern field to the Bailey show The next year the two shows were con solidated and have been one show ever since Mr Barnuros one joke with Mr Bailey as long as time shrewd old circus manager was alive was Well have you any more baby elephants that you do not want to sell N Y iress THE BASQUES An Intcre tlnar People la the Sonth of France Time Basques or Euskahhinak as call themselves on account of the prim itive character of their institutions but more particularly because of the archaic features of their language have long attracted the attention of ethnol ogists Few writers on European travel have been able to keep their hands off this interesting people Owing to the difficulty of obtaining information from time original Basque sources a wide range of speculation has been offered for cultivation Interest for a long time mainly centered in the language the physical characteristics were largely neglected The last ten years have however witnessed a remarkable change in this respect A series of investigations has been offered to science based almost entirely upon the study of the living population As a consequence this people has within a decade emerged from the hazy domain of romance into the clear light of scien tifict knowledge Much remains to be accomplished but enough is definitely known to warrant many conclusions both as to their physical origin and ethnic Popular Science JSTonthly I Unman Thermometer There are men said Mr Bifferly who

Inrni for Five Years and IK Swindled tiy Natives I expect I am the only American who ever cultivated a farm in France which I did fur five years with someprofit and munch pleasure said the scholarly and eloquent Judge Mackey of South Carolina Some years ago I went to Europe for tny health In Paris 1 met a wealthy New Yorker a Mr Baker to whom 1 hud extended some kindness during our civil Avar He was glad to see me and we recalled old times in our native countrj After a few lays he seemed loath to separate from me anti begged me to live with him lie couldnt speak the language and as his two daughters were in a French whool time hung heavy on his hands I consented and Raker leased a beautiful old chateau five miles out of Paris on time Seine It had bcnniifnl grounds and 22 acres of good arable land The farm lie turned over to me fur five years for tile sum of one dollar and my eoiuiinny nnd I nt oixre uroct ded to it in cultivation First I took in a Frenchman ns n farmer and found him to understand agriculture admirably but he was the most unconscionable rascal that ever evaded prison He would cheat me in every little transaction When straw berries which we raised under glass for the Paris market were worth six fames a quart he came back from town with the proceeds declaring that he had only received three francs Of course I found the rascal out eventual ly but never was quite able to cheek mate his crookedness Early in our partnership I had a serious quarrel with him Under our contract I was to furnish two horses and he was to provide two oxen lie came up with one little scrub ox and hitched in with it was his own daugh ter a girl of 20 years This was the team with which he proposed to do plowing The idea of a woman being driven alongside an ox to ground It made me angry and I gave Mr Frenchman a piece of my mind I told him that women were not put on a level with beasts in America and at the some time unfastened the harness from about the girl lIe shrugged his and said this was France and me of the French flag flying over my house I called his attention to the fact that above was the flag and time controversy ended the girl being givena insteat of Jjaving to help draw the plow We raised peas beans potatoes and every sort of vegetable for which a ready sale was found in Prod ucts of the farm are dear in France A goodsized chicken is worth 15D and ham retails for 40 cents a pound I tried raising Indian corn but the climate didnt suit it being too far north and so we were able to gather only four bushels from one acre Even with my thieving coadjutor I cleared about 1000 per year while he must have made at least twice that sum The French are not to be relied on when it comes to selling food products One day I went to market and took a notion to buy a dressed hare Our cook served it in the most dainty style im aginable and our whole party enjoyed it tremendously Not long afterward in conferring with the cook about the details of a dinner she told me that it might be well to buy another cat as we seemed much pleased with the other one Then I knew the horrible truth and remembered that I had bought the animal dressed and minus its head Washington Post Dromedaries That SmoUc Dromedaries are said to be particu larly fond of tobacco smoke and cnn be made to do almost anything under its influence Travelers in Egypt it is asserted rely more on tobacco smoke for their control over these huge beasts than anything else When trav eling on long journeys the dromedaries are in ninny cases required to travel night and day without rest and the beasts are kept up to their tasks smoking cigars The driver carries a triangular piece cf wood which is pierced at one point like a cigar hold er This is inserted in the mouth of

declared a draw us the train es from the immediate effects of the waterspout which burst against the of a mountain but the immense volume of water poured down the mountain side dong the roadbed finally caught up with the twin and iu uudated it so that the passengers hail taken oil in handcars The particulars of this unique race arc highly interesting It was the daily passenger train from Pucbla to Mexico city and a large number of passengers were aboard About 10 the fky be lame suddenly covered with musses of black clouds An inky waterspout culebra as it is called by reason of its resemblance to a writhing serpent hung from the heavens and advanced rapidly in the track of the moving train There was great excitement among the passengers The people in the third elnKS conch who had the best view of the phenomenon went down on their knees in prayers for deliverance One lady had a nervous attack and fainted When time engineer learned ot the ramie aboard his train he decided to show time culebra his heels Tncn began the prettiest race on record with the lives of n load of passengers as the stakca grade down grade around sharp curves across bridges and over the levels Hew

threatened to engulf it Wider the engineer threw time throttle endeavoring to escape this new danger And all would have been safe but sharp curve intervened and the engine jumped time track The engineer saw time danger and reversed the lever and applied the brakes Time ongine rolled down the embankment limit the rest of the train including the tender remained on the track The next moment the mass of water struck the now stationary train and flooded it to the level of the platforms The passengers and crew were helpless to do more than look out to see what had become of the engineer and supposing them killed nut they both scrambled or rather swam out of the window of the overturned cab and clambered buck on the train This happened in the vicinity of San Antonio Calpulalpain state of Tlax A relief train was dispatched to a point as near as it could get and the passeujfors and crew of the ship wrecked train wcro transhipped in cars nnd brought on to Mexico ar riving here only four

point to the fact that if a man wants to live long and preserve his health and strength he ought to marry These figures may perhaps serve to make up the undecided minds of young men who are hesitating about taking the plunge into matri mony Among unmarried men between the ages of SO and ir the death rate is 27 per cent Among married omen between the same ages it is only IS per cent For 11 bachelors who live to be 40 years of age 7S married men triumphantly arrive at the same period The differ ence gets all the more marled as time on At CO years of age there are only 22 bachelors to 4S married men at 70 there are 11 bachelors to 27 who are married and by the time they reach 90 the married men are three to one for there are nine of them to every three bachelors And yet in the face of facts like these we still find men daring to remain single It really is as much as their lives are worth if they only came to think Men may talk of their lives being shortened by domestic worries and anxieties and cares That is all rub bish Statistics must tell the truth and these statistics of the Berlin doctor say that a man who is a bachelor stands in far greater risk of a shortened span Of course any wife can tell you she knows where the secret lies Men who have somebody to look after them to feed them properly and see that they change their wet boots and come home at night at reasonable hours well and live miserable bachelor who has no one to care whether he lives on burned mutton chops and sleeps in damp sheets whether he leaves his top coat at home when he has had or

With them death is the moving factor causing the payment of the policy with us a definite and fixed mathenialical rule in lieu of death matures the policy INSURANCE IS A LAW OF AVERAGE They figure on so many men out of a thousand dying we figure on so many policies They kill the kill the policy There is no reason why a man should die to reap the ben fit of his investment We return an average of 230 for every dollar paid us and yet we assume an obligation less than onethird as great as has been assumed and paid for years by the leading life insurance companies of America Only about twenty 20 per cent of the people are insurable Only the somul and healthy who least need its advantages can obtain lire insurance Wiry should there not be a means the other eighty So per cent of time population can carry an invest ment time same as the favored few who can get life insurance Our is to open the door to the entire population to enjoy the same or greater benefits for an equal or less expenditure
