AN HONEST "CO-OPERATIVE."
HOW IMITATION LIFE INSURANCE PUOVKS A
FAILURE EVEN WHEN HONORABLY CON
DUCTED. Correspondence St. Louis Globc-Demecrut
Des Moines, low.v. I have noticed
sevcial articles of late in ninny ot the lead
ing newspapers in regard to tho assesment
plan of life insurance, and as we have a
pretty good illustration in this city of the
lack of permanency of that style of insur
ance, even when honestly and capably
managed, I thought I would send you a
statement in regard thereto for publication
if you care to publish it.
The Iowa Life Insurance company, was
organized in March, 1874. It was started
on the theory underlying the so-called co
operative system, viz : "that there would be
scarcely any death losses, and consequently
very little money to be paid." Its officers
were James M. Shelley, president; C. F.
Davis, vice-president, and James M. Shaf
fer, secretary all citizens of Keokuk and
gentlemen of the highest respectability and
commercial standing. So far as we
know, the company has been hon
estly 'and ably managed. The pre
judice against tho old-line companies on ac
count of tho numerous failures was made
use of, and the plea of "economy"' was also
used to, work up a large membership. The
officers, in organising their company,
avoided many of the errors that incumber
other co-operarive insurance companies; in
other words, they adopted some of the safe
guards of the old-line companies, such as
medical examinations, graduated assess
ments, guarantee capital, etc., and to that
extent the Iowa Life was better than most
ol its co-operative companions.
Hut see the result. Witness the want of
co-hrsiveness in the co-operative system.
The rise and tall ol the Iowa Life is told
iti a few words, from the statement of its
officers to the Iowa insurance department,
as follows :
Total No. policies in force Dec. 31, 1871
Total No. policies in force Dec. 31, 1875
Total No. policies in force Dec. 31, 1870
Total No. policies in force Dec. 31, 1877
Total No. policies in force Dec. 31, 178
Total No. policies in force Dec. 31, 1870,
At one time in 1870 the number of poli
cies reached 0,208, though at the end of
the year they had dropped to 5,000, as
above stated, In November, 1877, the
officers issued a circular to their policy
holders in which they state that "over seven
hundred have left the company since Sep
tember last, and that 0,000 in all have
violated their contracts."
Almost superhuman efforts have been
made to keep the company alive, but it has
reached the average limit of
existence of such companies, and
will soon close its ephemeral ex
istence. Death losses aro coming more
rapidly now among the members who join
ed in 1874 and 1875, as any student of life
insurance could have foretold, and the
losses among the young and vigorous policy
holders is, consequently, more frequent.
And it will be seen, too, that tho effort to
get in "your blood" to supply the place of
those dying is ineffectual. This is the
"last ditch" of tho co-operatives. Their
claim that they can supply tho place of
those dying and lapsing with "young
blood" is theoretical, not practical.
But as "economy" ia tho great watch
word of the co-operative apologists, let us
see how it has worked in tho case of tho
Iowa Life. There were, according to tho
statements of the officers:
Death losses, Other ex
Ia 1874 t 1,010 00 $ 3,174 17
In 1875 3,234 00 17,415 83
In 1870 15,098 50 77,004 40
In 1877 108,050 00 40,104 48
In 1878 27,084 45 0,387 03
In 1870 3,251 85. 2,058 20
Totals 150,234 80 $150,304 21
Tho whole thing in a nut shell is just
tin's : It has cost tho members of the Iowa
Life $315,530.01 to pay $150,243.80 of
death losses. In other words, tho expenses
of tho concern have just about equalled
the amount paid for death losses. What
have the co-operative assailants of tho ''ex
pensive" old-line companies got to say to
that? During the six years of its existence
tho Iowa Lite has paid over $100,000 as
commission to agents alone. C. R. S.
A PRETTY STORY, j
A prisoner on a life sentence in the New
Hertford, Mass., prison has always been a
desperate, dangerous man, ready for rebel
lion at any hour. One day in June a party
of strangers came to the institution. One
was an old gentleman, tho others ladies,
and two of the ladies had small children.
The guide took one of the children on his
arm, and the other walked until the party
came to climbing tho stairs. Jim was
working near by, sulky and morose
as ever, when the guide said to him:
"Jim, won't you help this little gir
up the stairs?" The convict hesitated, a
scowl on his face, and tho little girl held
her arms out to him and said: "If you
will, I guess I'll kiss you." His scowl
vanished in an instant, and he lifted the
child -as tenderly as a father. Half way up
the stairs she kissed him. At the head of
thu stairs she said : "Now, you've got to
kiss me, too." He blushed like a woman,
looked into her innocent face, and ttien
kissed her cheek, and before he reached
the foot of the stairs again ' the man had
tears in his eyes. Ever since that day he
has been a changed man, and no one in
the place gives less trouble,

An Elegant Toilet Preparation, hair
dressing and restorative is found in "Lon
don Hair Color Restorer." It seldom fails
to restore gray or Tided hair to its original
youthful color and beauty. Falling hair is
cheeked by its use, and it produces a
growth of beautiful young hair, soft, giossy
and luxuriant. It certainly is the most
cleanly and effective hair restorer now be
fore the American people.

has stopped my hair from falling, and re
stored it to its natural color. It has proven
satisfactory in every respect. The "London

the leading druggists at 75 cents a bottle.

THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of tho United States.
120 BROADWAY NEW YOEK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that
nual New Business has been
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, audits
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
Asa GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new, throughout the United States,
After the policy has been in force for three years.
"The Equitable Life lias paid since its organ
ization to January 1st, 1BII0, S51,Ji2,730. "and
closed its books upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim."

any other of the leading companies.
FOURTH The Equitable realizes higher rate of rent, or
