Down With the Roller Towel When tlie Travelers' Protective Association of lowa net recently, the members in good standing didn't waste any fleeting moments on pate legislation or race suicide. The minutes of the previous meeting were road and ap proved, iind then there was organized a crusade for liberty and freedom and better conditions that may go ringing down the channels or history thereabouts.

Its natural setting is a hostelry where laundry soap is used for shaving purposes and where everybody calls the landlord "Si." The girl who waits on the table has seen hotter days. If you look sympathetic she will tell you about it. THE Fool) IS SERVED IN THOSE LITTLE STONE BOATS THAT WEIGH A POUND EACH AND THE COFFEE IS NEI THR MOCHA NOR JAVA, BUT A LIQUID INSPIRA TION FOR CRIME. THE HAIR BRUSH IS POVERTY STRICKEN AS TO BRISTLES, AND THERE ISN'T ANY COMB. But the towel! The young fellow who clerks in the One Price Clothing Store gets the first look at it and he is followed hy the loco motive engineer who loys over at that town and eats at the hotel. He leaves his mark, all light. A dozen more come in a hurry, and most of them sozzle a hit at the sink, take their turn at the towel, and hustle into the banquet room. And along ahout the time when the ax is being applied to the dried apple pie. the member of the Travelers' Pro tective Asociation of lowa, who has heen trying to sandbag a hill of goods into the store of the village grocer, arrives on the scene. He has the final wipe on the roller towel. It is wet ami clammy and limp. It looks like a war map of Manchuria. A Sherlock Holmes could analyze it and name the vocation of every guest in the hotel. The drummer curses the luck ami wonders why the hoard of health does Hot interfere. And so the fight is on. More power to the Travelers Protective Association. May its Togos and Kojestvenskys keep up the hattie until the banner of the country is trailed in the dust or sent to the laundry. Because Mrs. Effie K1 ink spanked the children of Mrs. [Wm. EOink, her sister-in-law, she is spending three days in the Sioux City, la., jail. She flatly refused to pay the fine put upon her for disturbance of the peace, preferring the martyrdom of incarceration. "Those children needed a spanking, M she said to the judge, "and if their mother won't spank them, somebody must." Mrs. Erne has fine spunk. And she stands upon firm (socio!t>gical principles. It is a pity she has to languish in iail while there are so many children sorely in need of good sound spankings. Every state has its penitentiary, every county its jail, every suhdivisJon or society its procedure for punishment, until we strike the family, the foundation rock of all socie ty; and there all system of judgment and punishment is utterly wanting. The office taken upon herself by Mrs. Kffie Klink might, if consistently kept up, revolutionize society at its foun tain head. The average mother spanks her children whenever she feels badly. The average father relieves himself of indig nation or husiness worry hy a resort to the rod upon his unoffending offspring. The right to spank their children is an inalienable right of every parent. It seems to he the only satisfaction a lot of parents get out of them. But the family spanking is entirely without system, in most cases. And, then, it is said there are cases where the spanking hurts the parent more than it does the child. In such cases as these, the ohliging sister-in-law, who is ahle to see when the children need a spanking and to give it to them, ought to he regarded not as a disturher of the peace, hut. as a blessing. Unfortunately, however, parents in general neglect many other things rather than fail to spank their children. They seem not to realize that child-training includes self training as its first and most essential element. A "KAm-SAVEeV that grows ln popularity. GOING-1 GOING- !i GONE!!! Kerpieids Will Save It.

Previous ly, supervision had been exercised to some extent In other slates, especial ly In New York, but a special depart ment was not established In that state until lss'J. Other states soon created departments of supervision, some copying tlie Massachusetts features and some those of New York. At present every state in the Union exercises some supervision over life insurance companies. Most of them have special departments, but in some cases the supervision Is In charge of the secretary of state or other state Official, BliSUr W right was appointed com missioner of insurance in Massachu setts In 1858 nnd his selection was n very happy one because he had a keen insight into the needs of the business and did much to put it on a safe basis. Ho advocated a standard of solvency and the legislature pass ed a law requiring all life companies doing business there to make a valu ation of ail outstanding policies ac cording to the Actuaries' Mortality tabts and 4 per cent interest and re port the same annually together with the amount of their assets. Since each state had its own laws regarding the regulation of life In surance, it was found expedient to have them ns similar as possible in the various states. Therefore a con vention of insurance department of licials was held In 1871 for the pur pose of discussing the most advisable means of supervising life insurance and nlso of enacting legislation which WOUld minimize the differences. Theso conventions are still held every year and the officials ale still working for uniformity. As each state requires companies to furnish a statement of tlie condi tion of their affairs each year it is extremely desirable that similar re ports can he made to each state, and a uniform blank has now been used for many years upon which com panies are required to furnish de tailed reports of assets und liabilities, one of p/hich must balance the other; also a detailed statement of income and disbursements during the year. The statement showing the condition of the company on December 31 pre ceding must be filed before tho first of March, and must be sworn to by principal officials of the company. Borne states examine their home Companies regularly every year, others at less frequent periods, hut whenever nn Insurance official has reason to douht the eorreetness of the stntement or the Bolveney of any company doing business in Ills statu, he may forthwith examine It at ltß expense. The selected mm- WILLIE B. GOODE. 2y Jos. J. Devney. I iners, who consist of one or moro competent, actuaries and a corps of clerks, go to the home office of the company, where they arc given ac cess to all Its books, policies and records. In case of a thorough ex amination, every piece of property which the company owns or has any loan op, no matter where it is lo cated, is appraised by properly se lected appraisers, records of deeds and mortgages arc investigated to see that tlie titles are all clear, the liability on each policy which the company h is outstanding is figured, its expenditures arc examined; In fact a complete investigation of the assets, liabilities and methods of business i.s made. If it is found that tlie company Is pursuing methods which nre not con ducive to the best interests of its policy holders, these are pointed out and reforms follow, Examinations often result In showing that com panies are even more favorably cir cumstanced than their own reports show. Only recently the examination of a largo company resulted in the examining department crediting it witli over a million dollars more as sets than it claimed, Supervision of life Insurance hy federal authorities has been advo cated for years. Eltzur Wright rec ommended it even as early as 1885, nnd the ngltntion lias heen going on more or less ever since. The Inter est in this movement was consider ably Increased when tlie bureau of commerce nnd labor was established a few years ago and more recently When President Roosevelt recom mended national supervision In his message to congress. Many promi nent officials of Insurance companies are ln favor of it. One striking ad vantage for the companies doing in terstate business, which Us advocates point out, Is that insurance laws to which they conform would be uni form throughout the country. While there are many things in state supervision which if corrected would lighten tlie burdens of the companies, yet the fait must not be overlooked that In the last quarter of the cntury (during which time Oils supervision has been universally exercised i the dearth of failures of life insurance companies has made B record that is not paralleled In any other system of business.

An ambition to become the world's strongest man, eouided with proper physical train ing, lias done for me only what It will do for any young man so favored and inclined. I was horn In Russia, My father was a German and my mother a Swede. As a youngster I longed to be an athlete. Lacking early oppor tunity fur scientific training I used common sense. I did not abuse my body by eating more than I could easily digest, but I ate what I de sired. I pampered a sweet tooth and it did not hurt me. I tried to de velop every muscle and ns a young ster could run, swim, juggle weights and box with boys twice my age. At 10 I was an all-round athlete and then secretly incubated the am bition to become the strongest man In the world. At a demonstration by Invitation before !>r I. Krajewskl, a prominent St. Petersburg phy sician, I broke three world's weiplit lifting records. This started me up the ladder. Since then I have heen around the world, have participated In more than 300 wrestling matches in six years, some with men who outweighed me 100 pounds, and I have not been de feated, When I go into a match I have no idea of my program. Of course I have favorite holds —every one has— , but I guage my work to the prowess of my antagonist. I conserve my strength until the proper moment and then exert it with all the force I command. It is a great thing to know tlie second for attack and then attack like lightning.
