The policy was taken out with the ?nivcrs?l Insurance Company, and afterwards taken over by the Hoyai Liver Company, who reduced the premium to 9d. per week. Plaintiff < continued to pay her 4d.. hu since tbon the policy bad lapsed, and though de- I fendant had got some of the premiums refunded, the plaintiff could get nothing, i His Honour: How can you claimi' it 1 was an illegal transaction. | Mr. Seime: Not on the part of my Mi?.
