LIFEINSURANCEAGENTSl Are Busy During: Thwe Last Days of 1902. P«opl« Are Learning to liny from the Beit Companies. g In a talk with James M C wan. res- gj Idcnt manager of the Northwestern Mu- J\ tual l.lfc of Mltw.iukec WIs, lit hi* g« office In thi Mill kin building estcrday, the fact WHS brought out that the North, western this year him biokin till previous records fur business wrltti n during the first e!e\fn months of any our year, ·Inoe tho o »m]any began writing lift* in* ·urancf. nearly 4.1 years ago Mr, Cowan wrote il.irli.K the month of November over $*)00--he MIMI that the Northwevtern's npn' pnl cy .» :i "».nncr." and wherever an oportunlty |i given to properly ami clearly present H--people buy. Mr. Cowan said that the business men of Illinois were r.ipldly learning that a western man's nest Interests are · conserved and that he can do better for his money by insuring In a flrstclass western company. The Review for many years has commended to Its readers the value of first- class old-line life Insurance. The business of life Insurance affords an excellent opportunity for u young man without rapl- f tal to bulil up a business for himself ( We notice that many f the bright col- | | lege men of the priscnt day aro taktnn () up life Insurance as n regular business gj and are making 1 It tiholr life, work--they /» are putting Into th's business thrlr usual gj enersy ami, of course satisfactory r«- TM suits follow tiiclr efforts. It has often been a problem with youna men after leaving collcgx and .university Just what profession or line of business to engage in, and It has occurred to us many times, that her* Is a business that does not require a long number of years of preparatory study, nor does It require large capital It Is a noticeable fuel that thin business Is on » much higher plane, and a better class nf men are engaging, in It today than at any time In the his. tory of tho business Mr. Cowan aays "that lie believes n man can sell life insurance if he can ·ell any other line of goods, and that even a "fourth-class" salesman can sell Northwestern policies. The truth of the matter Is. the policy contract almost ·ells Itself, If It Is Intel! gently shown." When you r omember the number of men who are carrying only a small line o Insurance--!f they are Insured at all-and when you think of the many young men wh- are com ng or age each year there certainly seems to be an opportunity ready made for an enthusiastic young worker In this field Mr Cowan believes that a conscientious Insurance agtnt who soils llrst-class lite Insurance la the beat Mend that can come Into a- man's home. The Nnrthwestcrn's agent In Drciitur certa.iily 'believes In His company" and the business of life Insurance. BIXON WAS ROBBED, THE BIG STORE BACHMAN BROS MARTIN CO.

It is lined with a triple warp Italian lining, guaranteed to wear as long as the outside of the suit, and the garments bear the Union Label. Buy this suit and you will not have to buy another for a long time.
