HOW HOUSEHOLD REFUSE IS REMOVED
Ono or two wooden "backets"
form pail of the furniture of every
Edinburgh household. They arc
shaped like truncated cones the
smaller base forming the bottom
sons to give a relatively wide open
top rendering tho bucket easy to
fill and easy to empty when laid
hold of by the wooden cars
which serve for handles. These
"ashbackcts" stand in some conven
ient corner and receive the day's
sweepings the ashes after being
thriftily sifted and Such debris as
legitimately finds its way into our
own dustbin. The daily vegetable
refuse is promptly burned as soon
as it becomes waste matter or it
may be dried under the stove at
night and what is fit to burn is
burned in the kitchen (ire in the
morning. At six o'clock each morn
ing in Edinburgh old town, and at
seven o'clock in the new town, these
buckets arc carried to tho curb by
the house-servant and wait the pub
lic dust-cart. The two men who
accompany the cart lift the bucket
by its handles, and overturn its con
tents into the cart so easily that
little delay occurs upon tho journey ;
so that, with a sutllcient plant of
carts and men, Edinburgh may be
looked upon as a town swept and
garnished every morning but Sun
day. This is no real exception, ior
the Saturday night cleaning is the
great institution of the week, and
then the clever managing servant
carries her "backet" to the street
just as the cart is about to pass, and
lias it "couped" and returned to her
with the least possible loss of time.
No "tip" is tendered or expected
for this service, which is duly paid
for on a business footing in the as
sessments. In London, where the
dustman comes out of his way, with
use of broom and spade, at varying
expenditure of time, in cleansing
receptacles of varying degrees of
foulness, tho custom of "tipping"
for such personal service is of facile
growth, and once established becomes
difficult or impossible to oradicate.
MATRIMONIAL FASHIONS IN JAPAN.
There is sometimes a very matter-of-fact
clement about matrimonial
fashions in Japan. A vernacular
newspaper describes the case of a
lad' whose story illustrates our
statement. She was a dancing girl
of Nihon-bashi, and, whether by
industry or inheritance, her means
were considerably better than those
of the majority of her class. live
years ago she made the acquaintance
of a young gentleman whose man
ners were very engaging and who
represented himself as the heir
apparent to a fortune of some four
teen or fifteen thousand dollars. It
was not necessary that, like ordinary
heirs, he should wait to step into
some dead man's shoes. A time
had already been fixed for the
allotment of his property. In 1883
he could be quite sure of coming
into possession. Under these cir
cumstances he proposed for the
dancing girl, and obtained her
consent, contingent, however, upon
satisfactory proofs of his heirship.
These were duly forthcoming, and
the country youth became mulco in
the geisha's house, that is to say,
he was received as its lord and
master. His hobby was medicine.
Every day he attended the classes
at the Tokio Medical College, and
in order that his industrious pro
pensities might not be baulked, his
wife paid the fees and other educa
cational expenses, amounting, on
the average, to ten yen per mensom.
When 1885 came, it found the
happy couple plus a son, but mhitis
about two thousand yen which re
presented nearly the whole of the
feisha's wordly belongings. But what
matter! The medical student's
dollars were always there. They
weren't, however. The scholastic
youth had not a sen of his own,
either in esse or in posse, which cir
cumstance being discovered, his
wife did what, think you gentle
reader? Quietly turned him out,
keeping the child herself, and began
to dance again for a livelihood. We
trust she will succeed. Japan

THE undersigned, a Committee of Di
rectors ot the Equitable Life As
suianco Society of tho United States,
appointed to formulate the views of the
Board on the advantages offered by the
Society to the public, report:
1st The Society issues all the approv
ed forms of assurance, including Ordi
nary Life, Ei do wment and Tontine po
licies. It is immaterial to tho Directors
which form of policy is taken by in
2d The Life and Endowment forms
of policy provide for annual cash divi
dends and a surrender value; aic indis
putable after three years and payable
immediately after proof of death.
3d Tho premiums on a Tontine po
licy are tho same as on tho Ordinary
Lite, but, while the latter is only pay
able in the event of death, the holder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
the whole of the reserve and the accu
mulated profits in rash at the end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
lime, after his producing years aie past,
he can, without any laiger premium
tbun on nn ordinary policy, secure these
4th Experience shows that the return
paid in cash on maturing Tontino po.
HCies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums poid by policy
holders, so that the avtrago cost ol the
assuranco will be only about tho interest
on tne premiums.
5th Tontine policies, like others, are
paid In full hi the event of death at any
time during the term of the policy, and
aro incontestable after three yeais, and
payAble immediately after duo proof of
0th Experience shows that tho 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 Tontine 'policies will be made
non-forfolfabl'e under tho laws of tho
State, if so dciirf-d at the time tho as
suranco ih effected.
8th The Tontino system Is fair and
just; its accounts are nccurafely kept,
separate from all other busincbs; tho
funds judiciously invented and improv.
