PASSENGER PIGEONS A century ago the great naturalist, James Audubon, observed this species in such abundance that he did not believe its numbers would ever be greatly dimin ished. Yet the last passenger pigeon vanished twenty years ago. If the fate of an entire species is unpredictable, how much more so are the fortunes of an individual. That is why the wise man, no matter how abundant his fortunes today, prepares for adversities that may befall tomorrow. Moral: Insure in The Travelers. All forms of in surance.
