Man: Well, Fighting Bob Turner is after me. He swears he will shoot me on sight. He's mean. You know, I'm a little scared.
Mr. Bunion: You had better get your life insured.
/
Man: That's what I'll do, I'll go right now and do it, for he is a man of his word.
Mr. Bunion: Yes, indeed! he will surely shoot if he says so.
/
Insurance Man: How much insurance do you want and whose favor? Who shall get it in--
Man: Fifty thousand dollars, sir, in favor of Mr. Bunion. If I die or get killed, give to him all of it!

Man: Heres a policy for fifty thousand dollars on my life. If Bob shoots me, you get the money. Mr. Bunion: Well! Ha!- I ah..hope you ah, eh, oh! Ah. Here he comes, now, with a gun, too.
