G W BANE
REPRESENTING THE OLDEST INTERNATIONAL LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY IN THE WORLD

  When a man dies nowadays, the first comment of his friends, is invariably, "Wonder if he carried any insurance?"
  If the answer is made, that the deceased had a policy in the staunch and reliable New York Insurance Company for a thousand or two a feeling of respect for his foresight and intelligence is next evidenced by the remark: "Well, his family is provided for." That same life insurance money may mean the difference between abject and complete destitution and a life long competence. It may come in mighty handy to pay a mortgage or start a son in business.
  No other insurance company is on so solid a financial footing as the New York Life, and despite the fact few offer such liberal terms to policy holders. Mr G W Bane, the local agent, would like to talk to you on the subject, and will call at your residence on receipt of a postal. If it is inconvenient to come to his office. Mr Bane has been located in Keyser since April 20, and has already, written a number of large policies, among the holders, being such discerning business and professional men as Prosecuting Attorney Reynolds, L T Carskadon, V F Alkire, D C Quinn, Thos L Gray, etc. Incidentally the New York Life is endorsed by 82 governments.
  Mr G W Bane is a West Virginian, a native of Hampshire County. He was long a deputy US Marshal for the district of W Va, and directly prior to locating in Keyser, conducted an insurance agency for the New York Life Insurance Co in Elk Garden. He has a genial personality, and already numbers a host of friends in Keyser and this vicinity.
