Health of Des Moines

The Newspapers of the State speak of the improved physical appearance of the home-arrived members of the Legislature. The improved condition of the members is all owing to their residence during the Winter in the healthiest City in the State. When a man takes on a strong desire to die, he should ignore Des Moines altogether; but if, on the other hand, he desires to preserve the freshness and vigor of health, the Capital of the State offers to him superior inducements.
