Knowing that this was a Yankee company, we were particular to write them that Mr. Watts had took out the policy at our personal solicitation to cover him while breaking the colt, and that if they would pay up promptly we expected to he able to place another policy. The secretary wrote us that the company denied liability. because Clarence had been covered as a dry goods store clerk, while he had taken out the policy for the special purpose of breaking a colt. The United Mutual would not accept hostlers or horse-trainers under any circumstances, and the dried-up little runt that runs it said he thought our letter was plain proof of a scheme to take advantage of the company. He also canceled our commission as agent and called in his supplies. We promptly sent 'ern in O. K. We don't want any company that does not

If there is no money in it for people who take out policies through us, we don't ask their patronage. There ought to he room for everybody to snake something out of insurance, but when a greedy Yankee concern like this wants to take everything sight, that lets us out. We are now negotiating for the Tourists' Mutual Protection Society of Ivanhoe, Ga., a true Southern company.
