IS BASIS OF LAWSUIT
ATLANTIC, la., Nov. 10. (Special.)
Tha death of Isaao Dlckerson, the
Atlantlo banker who passed away in
Richards, Mo., this week, reveals a
strange history. Year ago when Dlck
erson waa Involved In a bank failure
his loss also brought loss to a friend
who Is now a prominent business man
of Uaasenna. In order to make good
tha loss Dlckeraon allowed tha friend to
become tha beneficiary In a Ufa Insurance
policy, believing he (Dlckerson) could
not llv long, as be waa then In very
poor health. The policy wa for $!0,OU1
For nearly twenty year this friend has
kept up the policy, paying out thousands
of dollars. Now It Is claimed the chil
dren of Dlckeraon, of whom there are
eight, are planning to try to get the life
insurance, but It la generally conceded
that the friend will win out In tha con
tent. Mr. DV kerson waa W years old at
