In addition to thia regular program of en

to keep the Insane from brooding over their
troubles, the women of the Institution are
given fancy needle work to do and thl has
proven not only beueflclal In the cure of
patients but has also proven a financial
success for the Institution, . a the work

Paroling Boys a Secrets.
Recording to the report of Miss Clare
Lunbeck, the state agent for finding home
for the boys and girls who are ward of
the state, .the new system of finding homes
Is a success.. The 'biennial report state
that since the new system was started In
October, 1904, there, have been S41 boys
paroled ' Into homes and only twenty-two
have been returned to the school, some of
whom were retumedr because out of em
ployment. Twelve have -ran away and their
whereabouts Is unknown. The agent during
the past twelve months has- traveled 11,071
miles by train and-ZSt -by team at an ex
pense to the state of 1482.71. The traveling
waa for the purpose of Investigating the
home before, the boys are 'taken to them
and of visiting the boys and girls after they
are In the homes to see that' they are In
good hands and doing right. .By, the terms
of an act of the last legislature the state
now ha two agents.-- A professor In the
school at Eldora -will act as agent for the
boys' school and Ml Lunbeck will look
after ' the girls' school and i Soldiers' Or
phans' home at Davenport..' .,
Compromise oa Co-lasaraaeo.
There Is likely to be a compromise meas
ure recommended by the legislative Insur
ance commission on the subject of co-insurance.
Auditor Carroll Is understood to be
opposed to the co-Insurance law, on the
ground chiefly that it ia not understood by
the public generally. The man carrying In
surance by not understanding its provisions
will be Injured by the law. The insurance
men want the law because they claim they
need the protection. The compromise that
Is to be offered by the commission Is a
measure that will allow co-Insurance In
cases of large fire loss and under cert n In
restrictions, but refusing It in cases of the
small policyholder who I likely never to
Investigate the subject of co-Insurance. The
demand of the insurance men for a co-

Insurance law Is chiefly based on the claim
that property owners are able to take ad
vantage of them by . the alsence of such a
law. At present, It Is claimed, property
owners of large business blocks, built along
modern lines of architecture, where, fire
seldom reaults In a total loss, are carrying
but small amounts of Insurance. One such
modem building In this ctty. worth JS00.000
has but $50,000 Insurance on It, It Is the
experience . mat there is seldom a nre tnat
will do more than that amount of damage
to the building, since It Is fireproof. But
under the present laws of Iowa If there was
a fire In .' the building which resulted in
damage to the amount of 150,000 the two or
three companies carrying these policies
would have to pay In full, but if there wa
a co-insurance law in the state permitting
the Insurance companies to write In the
contract an agreement ' whereby the prop
erty wner agreed to carry eighty per cent
of the value of the building In Insursnce, a
(60,000 fire would be pro-rated among the
companies carrying tih Inaurance.
