Why Do Men Insure?
and Why Are Insured Men Most Almost Citizens of Worth in Their Community A drop of water falls into a stagnant pool and remains, growing filthier and more ill-smelling each day, and polluting, with its fellow drops, the surrounding atmosphere. ANOTHER drop of water, no purer and no larger, falls into a mountain revulet, where it sings its way, augumented by thou sands of other drops, to the river, and then on to the ocean, in creasing in force and power with every mile it covers. It turns mill wheels, furnishes power for electric light plants, irrigates waste land, and is always producing results. IN JUST SUCH A WAY two men's lives may differ. The ! one a spendthrift and ne'er-do-well, thinking only of self and his pleasures. Mixing with other men of his kind he finally, like the first drop, falls into the "slough of despond." His usefulness is gone and soon he is missed when Father Time gathers him in. His life was a failure, and his death even more so. The other man gets his innings. He grasps his opportunities, j No task is too great, and no work can be called drudgery, for he j has a goal and is producing. "" 11 ? * ?

When his final calling comes, he goes to the great beyond as a conqueror in the fight. He has done his duty, and while! doing it, has painstakingly protected himself and his family. Which of these men would you prefer to be? "Every man in the world worthy the name, loves something ?his wife, his children, his mother, his sister, his reputation before other men. If he has not that sentiment in his soul, he is a poor stick. When he buys life insurance he is elevating and satisfying that one high, human sentiment by providing for that which he loves. Insurance is the one thing in the world that, at the least , cost, and with the most certainty, supplies that demand and de sire of noble sentiment. The Northern Life not only protects your family when death comes, but pays to you the face of your policy if you lose hands, feet, or eyes and pays you a monthly endemnity up to $200.00 per month if sick or disabled by accident.

PRESIDENT WOODROW WILSON, who saved Alaska Election: Nov. 3, 1914 CHARLES E. BUNNELL, who supports the Wilson policies i LA FOLLETTE ON | < PRESIDENT WILSON j ? Incidentally, tho country rejoices i that Wilson is President, not Roose- j velt, whose recently expressed atti tude towards disarmament confirms this judgment. The accumulating and I increasing horrors of tho European | war are creating a great tidal wave of public opinion which sweeps aside all specious reasoning aud admits of but one simple, common-sense, hu-! mane conclusion?a demand for peace ! and disarmament among civilized na tions. The author of this just and proper sentiment is Robert M. La Follette. not so long ago a hero of Roosevelt's showered with praise by that dispen ser of blame and of rewards. Mr. La Follette is nothing If not a keen ob-! server of political currents and pop ular opinion, and in his Weekly, he declares that President Wilson "today holds a supreme place in the confi dence of the people of the Unitedj States." which is summed up in the simple phrase, "He Is keeping us out of war." Tho praise Senator La Fol lette bestows upon him and Mr. Bry an is unreserved. Those who, like Mr. Roosevelt, mocked at Mr. Wilson's Mexico policy now offer up prayers of thanksgiving that we were sparod a war with Mexico. As for the peace treaties, negotiated with Mr. Bryan, which Mr. Roosevelt scorns, tho Wis consin Senator declares that they con stitute a "great service to the human race." From our observation of press and public, we believe that Senator La Follette is correct in his estimate of what the public Is thinking. We cannot out feel that Mr. Roosevelt's rehashing of his mistaken militaristic theories just at this time is as grave a political mistake as any of the mauy that he has recently made and that have caused his friends to wonder what has becomo of his once great political skill and intuitive knowledge of public opinion.?New York Even ing Poet. TERRIFIC WAR-RATE IS WORLD WIDE Tho estimate of Paul Leroy-Beau lieu. the French political economist, that half tho population of the world is affected by the war is not Immod erate. Indeed, if reference is had to the indirect consequences of the war, it is within the bounds of truth to | say that it affects practically every living human being. India might be supposed to bo far enough away from the firing-line not to feel the onset of armies In West ern Europe. Yet is it very directly affected by the dispatch of native '??Anne tr\ tha fr/inf n rwl hv thA U'lth. draw&l of an element of the popula tion and a material part of the na tional wealth from Industry, and this over and above the Interference of commerce. China and Japan are af fected, all the colonial dependencies of the warring powers are affected. The Persian carpet-bagger, the Arab trader, the savages in the rubber for ests and the copra-gatherers in the South Sea islands, all suffer more or less from a conflict the evil conse quences of which extend to practical ly all the industries of the civilized and uncivilized man the world over. No part of the world's population, in these days of close international re lations and commercial intercourse, lives wholly to Itself, and any break down of one part of the complex ma chinery inevitably interferes with the working of the other parts. Europe's colossal waste of wealth will bring disastrous results not only to the na tions immediately involved, and not alone to others in close trade relations with the belligerents, but to hum ble toilers in the remotest regions of the globe. It will bo a staggering bill to pay and one which will levy an enforced tribute to some kind on all the human family.?New York World.

COL. SWANITZ APPROVES ALASKA COAL BILL ?*1'? SEATTLE, Oct. 17.?Col. A. C. Swunitz, of Alameda, Cal., the chief engineer of the Alaska Northern rail road, is a recent arrival at the Rain ier-Grand, from his homo in the South, where he has spent most of the sum mer. Col, Swanitz is rathor elated over the passage of tho Alaska coal bill. "It Is an excellent bill," he said. "It meets all of the requirements and will undoubtedly result in good work as soon as a railway is com pleted into the Matanuska coal fields. I know of one coucern on the Pacific coast which wishes to take out 100, 000 tons of coke a year, and they are perfectly satisfied with the law. It is an effort to bring about better condi tions 'in Alaska, and demonstrates that Secretary of the Interior Lane is the right man in the right place."? Seattle Post Intelligencer.

CHENA SLOUGH j THROWING ICE ?<?? FAIRBANKS, Sept. 30.?For the first time this season the C lien a slough and the river bolow here are show ing signs of the rapidly approaching freezeup. Quito a lot of ice was in sight along the slough through the city this morning and extended part way across it at the big riffle by the Nordale hotel. The ice is still thin, and has not as yet hindered navigation, to any extent, but the small boats are getting shy of making long trips. From the time the river begins to "thow Ice" until the freezeup is complete there is quite a long period, depend ing upon weather conditions. With such as there Is today it will be a matter of two or three weeks prob ably.?Fairbanks News Miner. FITTING MEMORIAL FOR MRS. WILSON PROPOSED ?
