The Inclination, the Time, the Money ABOARD this ship, seeing the world, is a young couple in the sixties. Neither came from a rich family. Nor did they get rich in the mar ket, strike a mining bonanza, reap a fortune in real estate, or stake a successful invention. But they have the time and the money, as well as the inclina tion, to travel. Forty years ago they returned from a brief honey moon and established a home where modesty reigned jointly with happiness. As the husband's income grew so did the cost of living. Also the scale of living. So, too, did his respon sibilities. As he looked these responsibilities in the face, he wondered. He saw a few men seeking to meet similar situations by scrimping themselves and their families-saving until it hurt. He saw others taking speculative chances, winning, losing. He saw others who thought not of the morrow. But he found a method of meeting his responsi bilities that seemed satisfactory in every way. It promised no extravagant returns and required that the family live on a little less than he earned. It promised, however, that they would not want if he did not live to see them through. He lived. The three children are grown, self supporting, parents themselves now. The life insurance policies which had solved the problem of protection when his family needed pro tection are now converted into an income. The income has made his retirement from active work possible. The income will continue as long as either he or his wife lives, an income sufficient to provide a trip now and then and to permit escape from the rigors of winter and the heat of summer. Moral: Insure in The Travelers. The Travelers Insurance Company, The Travelers Indemnity Company, The Travelers Fire Insurance Company, Hartford, Connecticut. All forms of life, casualty and fire insurance.
