CARR, Presiding Judge.
This is the second appeal of this cause, 36 Ala.App. 411, 57 So.2d 122.
After remandment the complaint was not amended in any manner. The defendant filed only the general issue.
The evidence at the second trial did not vary substantially from that at the first trial.
The material allegations of the complaint are set out in the former opinion.
Without dispute in the evidence the appellee did not give written notice of his illness within ten days after the commencement of disability, that is from March 2, 1948.
At the trial of the case at bar the court charged the jury:
The court was without authority to submit to the jury the doctrine of excuse for failure to perform notice conditions in the policy in the absence of allegations in the complaint of the facts and circumstances upon which the excuse or failure was based. 46 C.J.S., Insurance, § 1283(c), p. 333; 41 Am.Jur., Pleading, Sec. 103, p. 362; Sovereign Camp W. O. W. v. Cox, 221 Ala. 58, 127 So. 847; Inter-Ocean Cas. Co. v. Foster, 226 Ala. 348, 147 So. 127.
This was not in accord with the general rule which provides that the averments of the complaint and the proof must correspond. 16 Ala.Dig., Pleading, As a matter of fact, under the pleading and proof as disclosed by the instant record our conclusions must be controlled by the holdings on the former appeal.
The judgment below is reversed and the cause remanded.
Reversed and remanded.
