THURSDAY, OCT. 8, 1885. (
BONE AND SINEW.
A "Grangers' Picnic" was ic
cently huhl in Pennsylvania, at
which the attendance was immense,
being estimated on the "big day"
at -10,000. An address was delivered
In the morning, and in the after
noon, they being hungry for more
address, Mr. Mortimer Whitehead
spoke for nearly three horns on the
equalization of the tarilf. W. J.
Tell, of North Carolina, then ad
dressed the assembly. The next
day was to be "Editors' day," and
three or four tonguey quill-drivers
were expected to address the as
sembly. This is mentioned merely
to show the great difference between
the honest grangers and the crowd
that gathers to sec a slugging match.
In one ease the real bone and sinew
of the land listen patiently for hours
to dry details, delivered not always
- in a particularly interesting man
ner anxious to add to their already
well-stored minds and have a good,
sociable time when not -o listening,
and in the other case the slugger
crowd feel cut up if the match is in
anyway tame, and one of the
bruisers don't get knocked down
several times; and any little out
side fight is heartily welcome. Most
of the latter crowd have bone and
sinew enough, also, but .it is not
backed up by hard -cnse, 'morality,
thrift and enterprise. The grangers
of America, as a class, are nature's
diamonds in the rough, corn in the
ear, pork in the barrel no, that's a
bad simile big potatoes in the
hill upright and honest men, sonic
times exceedingly "close" in small
things, but nearly always with a
heart open for deserving charity.

SURE OF ONE THINC.
There was a case of assault and
battery before one of the justices
the other day, and a witness with a
black eye. several strips of court
plaster across his nose and one ear
badly lopped over was asked by the
defendant's lawyer if he saw Brown
"Can't say as I did," lie replied.
"Did you see the whole affair?"
"Well, how was it?"
"Well, Smith and me sot on the
reaper talkin' evolution. Jones and
Green sot on the grass talkiu' reli
gion. Brown and White sot bj- the
edge of the straw-stack disputin' on
politics. Three or four boys was in
the barn gittin' up a dog fight."
"Yes, go on."
"Fust I knowed, somebody called
somebody else a liar. Next I
knowed evolution, religion, polities
and fighting dogs was a rolling over
each other on the grass, and every
man kicking and biting and hitting
awaj fur all he was wuth."
"But did vou eec Brown strike
"Can't say as I did."
"Did you see White Mrike
"Can't be sure ol it. The only
thing I'm sure of, mister lawyer, is
that my old woman came out with a
pail of hot water and licked the hull
crowd and had over two quarts left
fur next time." Detroit Free
A MONSTER GUN OF AMERICAN
Heading, Pcun., Sept. 8 Tlie
Scott foundry to-day cast one of tlie
parts of a heavy breech-loading
chambered rilled cannon, with a bore
thirty feet in length, for the Ameri
can Standard Ordnance Company of
New York, under the supervision of
Col. Norm Wiard. Forty thousand
pounds of iron were used in its con
struction and the entire gun will re
quire 100,000 pounds of iron. The
casting was a success and was wit
nessed by many New York parties.
This is the first occasion where pri
vate enterprise has undertaken to
manufacture expensive ordnance for
the Government and lest it entirely
at private cost. Tlie gun, it is ex
pected, will prove capable of deliver
ing 18,000 pounds of projectile and
consuming 0,000 pounds of powder
in one hour's practice of consecutive
firing. The unequal expansion of
metal and consequent bursting of
guns in rapid firing is believed to
have been overcome, nnd it .is ex
pected that it will meet the provi
sions of the Congressional enact
ment that no gun shall be introduced
into the service until it has been
tested by firing it rapidly under con
ditions resembling the test of battle.
Its projectois claim that one of
these new guns can be fired from
five to ten times, while the ordinary
rifles and shotted gun can only be
fired once with safety. Special to

THE undersigned, a Committee of Di
rectors of the Equitable Life As
surance Society of the United States,
appointed to formulate the views of the
Board on the advantages offered by the
Society to the public, report:
1st Tho Society issues all tho approv
ed forms of assurance, including Ordi
nary Life, Endowment and Tontine po
licies. It is immaterial to the Directors
which form of policy is taken by in."
2d The Life and Endowment forms
.of polity provide for annual cash divi.
'dends and a surrender value; arc indis
putable after threo years and payable
immediately after proof of death.
3d Tho premiums on a Tontine po
licy are the same as on the Ordinary
Life, but, whilo the latter is only pay
able in the event of death, tho holder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
tho whole of tho reserve and tho accu
mulated profits in cash at the end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years aie past,
he can, without any larger premium
than on nn ordinary policy, secure these
4th Experience shows that the return
fiaid in cash on maturing Tontine po
icies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that the average cost of the
assurance will bo only about the interest
on the premiums.
Cth Tontine policies, like others, are
paid in full in tho event of death at any
time during tho term of the policy, and
aro incontestable after three years, and
payable immediately after due proof of
Ctli Experience shows that the mor
tality is lower among Tontino policy
holders, as the better lives seek this
kind of assurances, which is a consider
able source of profit. . "
7th Tontino policies will be mailo
non-forfeitablo under tho laws of .the
State, if so desired at tho time tho as.
surnnco iff effected.
8th Tho Tontino system Is fair and
just; its nccounts are accurately kept,
separate from all other business; .the
funds judiciously invested and improv.
cd, nml tlie accumulated profits faith,
fully guarded and properly apnoitioncd.
0th Tho Socloty has since its organ!,
.ation .tiansactcd a larger amount of
now business than nny other company,
while its new business for tho first ha'lt
of tho present year is $1,7GO,000 larger
than that of the first half of 1881. It
