LIFE INSURANCE MORE IMPORTANT THAN CROP LNSURANCE I Every farmer, as he tries to get l his affairs m shape, is bound to 'wonder, "What would happen to my family if I dropped dead next I week ?" Perhaps the boys could ]carry on the farm work; maybe there will be enough cash on hand to meet pressing needs; but what about the mortgage ? Carrying the t mortgage has been all the head of the family could manage. What would happen if he were gone? We all ,know quite well what has happened in cases without number in our experience. The farm ha been lost, and the family lot with it. Nobody wants that to happen. That's why so many farmers are making a special effort to protect i their families by life insurance policies. It will be a hard enough loss for any family to bear to have the husband and father gone. But if his insurance policy pro- rides cash to cover immediate needs and enough more to make ia substantial payment on the [ ]mortgage, the family can meet the future with some assurance.
