A Plaiinlblo Theory For Insnnlty.
Dns MOIKCS , la. , Juno 24. [ Special to
Tnn BKK. ] It has been a matter of consid
erable Inquiry ns to why la a peaceful anil
rural state lilto Iowa the number of Insane
people should constantly Increase. The stnto
has three hospitals of largo capacity now
constructed and In oporatlon. When the
hospital at Mt. Pleasant was built It was
supposed that It would lost for many years
and furnish all tlio room that would bo
needed. Hut four years ago the trustees
asked an appropriation for a now wing to ac
commodate ICO additional patients , and two
years ago another requestor the same sort
was preferred , both of which were granted ,
nnd still the hospital Is crowded. A second
asylum was built at Independence , and it
was thought that this , with the Mt. Pleasant
asylum , would bo amply sufllcicnt for the
needs of the state for many tnoro years , nut
Us capacity was tested , and still the mnn'uur
of Insane Increased till the poorhouscs of the
stnto wcro sheltering unfortunata mun imii
\votnon wlio were BUfTorlmj for the cnro nnd
treatment of a hospital , So two years ngo
the loRlslnturo umdo an appropriation for anew
now hospital and It was located at Clnrlnda
nnd has now bccorao fairly organized nnd
ready for work. Hut tlio Indications ore
that In a few years at the furthest , another
hospital will have to bo built to accommodate
the Increasing number of the Insane.
It socms pretty hard to toll why. In a rural
state like this , nwny from tlio distractions
and the hurry nnd worry of great cities , there
there should bo a steady Incrouso in the num
ber of the insauo. People who nmko an off
hand RUCSS would say that the fewest kisnno
wcro to bo found among farmers , nnd the
greatest number among the overworked and
worried business men of the cities. Investi
gation shows that quite the reverse Is true.
Mr. L. F. Andrews , the assistant secretary
of tlio state board of health , bus bcon giving
special attention to this line of inquiry with
very interesting results. Ho flnds that overexertion -
exertion and nervousness are not the cause
of incrnuso of Insanity , but that it comes
from that class of tlio population that seem to
bo most f rco from nervous diseases. In other
words , the agricultural classes furnish more
inmates for the asylums In proportion to the
population than any other. In 1835 , with
a population of 1,181,071 pursons over
ton years of ago , nearly one-third
were engaged In agriculture , and yet the
statistics of last year show that there were
731 Insane persons from the agricultural pop
ulation with but 730 from all the remaining
population , or about three insane from the
farming populatiou for every ono Irom other
classes. During the biennial period ending
In 1633 there was in ono hospital ISO farmers
and eighty farmers' ' wives. At the same
time there wcro but four professional men
nnd ton wives of professional men. For the
period ending last year the farmers num
bcrcd 209 , their wives 153 , while the pro
fessional mun numbered but seven nnd with
but bt'vcn wives of professional men. This
is a remarkable and a surprising showing.
According to these figures tlio bulk of the
Inmates of the different asylums of the
state come from the farming classes , from
the men and wouipn who nio supposed to IIP
free from the special worries and nnnoy-
nncos that people who llvo in the rush and
whirl of lurgo cities are subject to.
Mr. Andrews , in studying these statistics ,
lias n theory by which ho explains the pheno
menon. Ho holds that while ovcrworlc and
business worry may break down men's con
stitutions It very rarely drives them insane.
In support of this ho cites the fact that since
the beginning of the Mount Pleasant hospital ,
the oldest ono in the state , there have been
but 147 patients there whose insanity was
attributed to overexertion , Oiily sixty-seven
to business anxiety and only fifteen to exces
sive niontnl effort. In other woids it is not
nervous disease or montul break-down that
drives men crazy , nnd to explain the cause of
so much Insanity among the sober industrial
classes ho suggests the fact of their isolation ,
lie holiovos that social intercourse is the
safety valve of the race , and that the
farmer's family , by being cut off from asso
ciation so much of the time , are loft to brood
over their own thoughts and their real or
Imaginary troubles till despondency is suc
ceeded by hypochondria , nnd that in turn by
Insanity. There seems to bo a great deal of
foreo In Mr. Andrews' generalization. It
certainly IB a topic of great interest in Iowa
and can well awaken a prolltahlo discussion.
Whlln on tlii'subji'rt of statistic * it is inter
esting to note that this , 1'ollc county. Is the
banner county In the number of divorces
granted in the last twenty years. Special in
vestigations have bi'nii carried on under the
direction of Commissioner Wright , of the na
tional bureau of statistics. Those show that
In lubuquo county , for instance , there have
been but 300 divorces granted during twenty
years , or a number relatively small. In
lilack Iluwk county , a county containing no
large city. ! 1M were granted during this time.
But In 1'olk county the cllvomu mill has
ground a larger grist , for the number has
reached T''i ) . Tlio worlc was not carried to
completion , only ilrty-oiio counties having
been canvassed , owing to n lack of suftlcicnt
appropriation to carry on the inquiry. When
the losulta are all tabulated they will form
Rome very interesting statistics upon which

Seine thnu ago General Weaver tried to
create a sensation in congress by asserting
that nearly all the farms of Jowa wcro cov
ered over with mortgages. It was stated
that the people of this state were carrying
mortgages on their farms to the amount of
S.Ti ( > , < X > 0,000. A little Investigation of olliolal
figures at the sl.Ho house showed how udicu-
lous and untrue was the asscition. Tlio
entire value of all the real estate , including
farm and uity property , in Iowa Is loss than
the alleged amount of the mortgages upon it.

A Small Tenement Ilouso Totally De
A small tenement house Just noitli of the
Swedish church , on tlio corner of Nineteenth
and C.iss streets , was destroyed by flro yes
terday morning shortly after 7 o'clock. The
house was a story nnd a half double
frame building , and was the
property of the church. The south part of
the building , No. 500 Nineteenth street , was
occupied by MUs Gustavo Jensen , who kept
boarders anil routed rooms in tlio second
story of tha building. The llro was discov
ered in the roof and ceiling of this part of the
house by Miss Tillio Vyfolo \ lives

She was on lior way down to her work when
she saw the flames bursting out of tlio roof.
She gave the alarm nt once and a depart
ment alarm won turned In , but by some mis
take Ilia department made the run to Cum-
mlngg street , and before the inistako was
discovered the ( lames had made unh head
way in the old timbers of the buildIng -
Ing that no further attempt was
made to save the building Rnd the people
who hnd collected about the plnco devoted
tholr energy to saving the furnlturo of the
building. The property of the four young
mon who wcro rooming In the second story
was almost entirely lost. Tlio greater amount
of the goods In the first floor was saved but
was very badly damaged and broken tip.
The loss to goods nnd furniture In that
part of the building will roneh about f'JOU. '
Airs. Johnson had her property Insured for
The north part of the house. No. fill , was
ocuunlod by J. W. FyfoMiss Tillio Fyfo and
nnd Miss lintcllff , who roomoil on the first
tloor , and Mr. Ira 1'ickctt , his sister and
Miss .Icnnio Dillon , who had rooms
on the second floor. All the
goods belonging to the folks occupying the
llrst floor were in a flro saved condition.
The loss will hardly roach $100 the folks who
roomed on the second floor were not able to
save anything. Their loss will bo between
$300 and * 100.
Ttio loss to the building Is but very slight
as It was the Intention of the members of
the church to remove It and erect u new
building in Its place.
There Is no means of discovering how the
flro originated , ns there was no ( Ire In any of
the rooms nnd the lire had died out in the
kitchen steve ,
Thcro was no Insurance on the building.
The flro department met with a brace of
very serious accidents while making the run
to the Nineteenth street flro this morning.
Tlio extra wagon belonging to hook and
ladder company No. 1 was upset wlnlo
rounding the corner of Fourteenth and Dav
enport streets , nud the seven
firemen aboard were forcibly dashed
into the gutter and against the curbing. All
were more or less Injured , "Spud" Farrish

Ijnkc Opposing the U. 1 * .
The Union Pacific track extends north
ward by the side of Cut-Off lake almost to
the northwestern extremity of that sheet ,
its last extension having been to the mam
moth dual icc-houso of Swift & Co. , at the
point indicated. A short tlmo ago the
company set its engineers to work
to extend a now line northward from Locust
street. This line was run through a number
of enclosures upon which were several
shanties and small cottages , and in some
cases it was extended through the domiciles
themselves. The stakes were laid
and were followed by KOIIIO of the right-of-
way agents of the company who served
notice upon all the residents in the way to
evacuate the ground , because , it was alleged
to bo the property of the Union Pacific road.
None of the occupautshowevcrlcft the place.
Accordingly about seven of them were
brought before Justice Wade , on
action for forcible entry and de
tention. One of the defendants showed
that ho had held the ground for over a year ,
and in his case , the complaint was dismissed ,
because such action must bo brought before
the expiration of a year. The suit will ,
therefore , have to be brought before the dis
trict court. Several of the other defendants
claimed that they had not had suflleient
notification , nnd their cases were
continued , while in n few , the
point of the company was sustained , evi
dence having been adduced that the ground
in quiutlon w.is really the property of the
The interested occupants of the ground ,

A liKi : reporter , however , Investigated the
matter this morning and found in conversa
tion with Uyron Heed , A. J , Popploton and
tlio division engineer of the Union Paclllo
that the company owned the right of way fern
n hundred feet along the west bank of
Cut Off lake nnd that the
track now laid was almost on the west line
of the same , leaving the balance of the road
way to extend toward and in many places
into the laku. This territory was purchased
from Uyron Reed , A. J. Poppleton , O. F.
Davis mid Herman Kount/o. The part
tin ough which the track is being straightened
is the western boundary of a tract compris
ing about , flfty acres , which is now covered
with Cut Off lake , and which was bought
from O. F. Davis for tMO un nno This
would seem to Indicate that thcro is no hope
for the residents on the shoie. of Cut Off liilto

A northern man who recently re
turned from Texas , after living for some
months near General Albert Sidney
John&on's old plantation of China Grove ,
thirty miles from Houston , tells omo
aimibing stories of the railway service
in that portion of the Lone Star state ,
says an exchange. One road running
out of Houbton possessed one locomotive
and a single train of cars. The train
would go to Houston one day and then
would go to the other end of the line
the next day. The train would run oil'
the track occasionally , and then the
passengers would have to hoard with
the nearest planter for a few days , while
the cars wore lifted back on the rails.
There being but ono train of course col
lisions were out of the question. Tlio
conductor considered it a matter of only
ordinary politeness to stop tlio train
whenever a lady desired to gather a few
wild lloword along the way. Though he
aimed to be obliging , this conductor one
day got himself thoroughly disliked by
u lady who requested him to stop the
train all night at a small station , whore
she had some friends whom she wanted
to visit for a few hours before going on
to Houston. The conductor told her
