, AN EXCEPTION. .
Life insurance is an txception (1)
to the rule "Don't buy a thing until
you need it;" and (2) in that its cost
has not increased along with prae-
1 ticaiiy everything else. 11 one waits
.until h actually needs life insurance,
. he cannot then get it. Insurance com
f panics insure only sound lives. Im
: paired lives are denied all the atand
jard policies. The percentage which
i companies reject is greater than their
i death rate percentage. : .
If you have no life Insurance, the
Him to miks your application ia when
j you are in good health. While the
. cost of insurance has not advanced,
yet the premium does increase with
each year of added age. The younger
the age at which policy is taken, the
smaller the premium.
