It is now conclusively established
that the big life insurance compan
ies of New York are managed liv
professional, financial criminals of
the highest cunning, who steal the
policy holders' money to enrich
themselves and their friends, and
for years have escaped punishment
by stealing more money belonging
to the policy holders for the colters
of republican campaign committees.
And these insurance managers are
probably no worse, in fact probably
not half as bad as tlie managers of
the big trusts who are experts at
cunning thievery.
Refering to the decrease in popu
lation in this state during the past
five years, the Chicago Chronicle
says: Interesting material for spec
ulation is to be found in the fact
shown by the recent Iowa census
that the population of that state has
decreased approximately 30 000
since the federal census of 1900.
What has caused the decrease?
It would be easy enough to dis
pose of the matter by citing the
modern tendency of population to
center in the cities, but while this
would account for decreases in the
agricultural counties it would not
account for the decrease in popula
tion iD the state at large—unless,
indeed, we figure that the 30,000
missing Iowans have emigrated to
cities in other states.
This theory is defective also in
the fact that Iowa contains few cities
of any considerable size and none of
these has made extraordinary growth
during the last five years. Evidently
therefore, the cause of the defection
must be looked for elsewhere.
If Iowa were a poverty stricken
commonwealth—if its land were
poor and unproductive and its crops
half failures—it would be easy
enough to solve the problem. We
could assume that the people had
become tired of struggling for a
bare living and had sought better
opportunities elsewhere. But, as
everybody knows, the conditions in
Iowa are exactly the reverse of those
Iowa land is the richest and most
productive in the country and its
crops never fail. The farmers of
the Hawkeye state have prospered
•bevond all computation during the
last five years. They have every
reason to feel satisfied and no cause
to complain. We can not, therefore,
assign dissatisfaction as the cause of
thehegira. What can it be, then?
May not the decrease of popula
tion be due to prosperity instead of
to adversity? The theory looks par
adoxical at first sight, but it is in
reality quite reasonable.
Every successful farmer lias an
ambition to increase the size of his
farm. Iowa farmers have been suc
cessful in the highest degree and
they have no doubt correspondingly
.increased the size of their farms.
In other words, the individual liold
ings have increased, with the in
evitable result that the number of
individual holders has diminished.
There can be no doubt that the
high price of Iowa farm lands has
proved a temptation to their owners
It is reasonable to conjecture that
many of them have sold at a profit
and have then moved farther west,
or emigrated to the Canadian north
west_ where land is to be had for
Iowa may be experiencing the re
sults which always follow the con
solidation of land holdings. Iowa
will not become a second Ireland,
but it is possible that the same cause
which has depopulated Ireland is at
work on a smaller scale in Iowa.

Laaffhter iind Health.
A physician in sourcli of remedies
for Luuiau ills finds that laughter
stands very liigU lu tlie list of prophy
lactics. The effect of mere cheerful
ness ns a health promoter Is well
known, but un occasional outburst of
downright laughter is the heroic rem
edy. It 1.1 a matter of everyday experi
ence, says tho authority iu question,
that one feels the better for a good
laugh, au explosion of laughter being
in truth a "nerve storm, comparable in
lis effect to a thunderstorm in nature,
doing good by dissipating those op
pressive clouds of care which some
times darken the mental horizon." This
authority assurcj us that the memora
ble adage, "I.augii and grow fat," rests
011 a 8»uik1 philosophical basis. Portly
people arc not given to laughter be
cause they are fat. They are fat be
cause they laugh.
llurjrliirH 11 ml Chloroform.
Doctors agree that tho public Is
wrjny in ihe popular conception that
burglars sometimes chloroform the In
mates of a house before committing a
robbery. The usual story is that the
anaesthetic was squirted into the sleep
ing room through keyholes. A Kan
sas City surgeon who has had occasion
to administer chloroform or ether 000
times suys that .chloroform adminis­
tered in this manner would put a
quietus on tho burglar as well as till
inmates of a home. Physicians have
tried many times to administer chloro
form to sleeping persons and have met
with very poor results. The first ef
fect of au auuesthetie is not to lull to
Insensibility, but to arouse all the men
tal and physical vigor of the person
to whom It Is given.—Ivansa9 City
Willing hands will not remain long
idle if wedded to thoughtful hearts anil
observant eyes.—H. W. tittle.
Wouldn't Take It Oat In Trade.
A Welshman sued a fellow country
man some time since for a certain
amount of money ojvlng to him. The
debtor repeatedly offered to take the
debt out in trade, but this offer did not
seem at all to suit the taste of tha
creditor. At laBt tho Judge asked the
plaintiff the reason for liis unwilling
ness to accept tbe debtor's offer to
"work off the debt."
His reply was, "Well, you see, your
honor, the man's an undertaker!"
