MR. GLADSTONE Oil IRISH AFFAIRS.
The speech deliver oil by Mr.
Gladstone at Edinburgh on the Jitli
of November contained the follow
ing significant passage:
Formerly, the electorate of Ire
land was so limited that it was al
most impossible to recognize its
utterances as the voice of the nation.
The members were split into three
parties rarnellitcs, Tories, and
Liberals. Now Ireland's electorate
is us Inoad, as extended, as well
qilalilicu lo speai; oi urc wains ami
wishes of the people, as are the
electorates of Scotland and England.
I am confident that England will
never repent giung perfect equality
to Ireland. Wo must, look ":i stop
further lorward, and expect the
party which is probably in a vast
majority in Ireland to demand large
powers' of self-government. Such
will be a grave contingency. But
let it not 1111 us with alarm, because
as long as we give liberally, equi
tably, and prudently it will be need
less to fear the results, assuming
always that nothing w ill be demanded
that will jeopardize or eompioinise
the unity of the cmpiic. If such a
.demand be made we will know how
to deal with it. It is unjust for the
people of Ireland to suppose that
any other basis is contemplated.
Whatever demand Irehinil may de
liberately and constitutionally make,
unless it infringes on the principles
connected w ith the honorable main
tenance of the unity of the empire,
we aie bound at any rate to tieat
with careful attention. Loud
cheers. To stint Ireland in powers
" necessary or desirable for the man
agement of purely Irish matters is a
LIFE IN A HAREM.
The l'rincess do Uclgioso lias
given, in her "Souvenir of a, Tourney
in Asia Minor, etc.," a very stiik
ing picture of harem life, and its
loathsome features are perfectly in
keeping with the unnatural and
sensuous existence which polygamy
imposes on women.
Here is a sketch: "Possibly I
may destroy some illusions by speak
ing 'with so little lespcct of the
harems. We have read descriptions
in the 'Arabian Nights' and other
Oriental stoiics; we have been told
that these places arc the abodes of
bounty and love. We aie authorised
in believing that the descriptions
written, though exaggerated and
embellished, have still a foundation
of truth, and that in these myster
ious retreats, all the marvels of art,
luxury, magnificence and voluptuous
ness are combined. How far we arc
from the truth! Imagine walls
blackened and cracked; ceilings
with the beams gaping and covered
with dust and spider's webs ; sofas
torn and greasy ; portieres in tatters;
traces of tallow and oil everywhere.
When I entered, for the fust time,
one of these charming places, I was
disgusted, but the mistress of the
house did not perceive it. Mirrors
being very scarce in these countries,
the ladies bedizen themselves in the
sftrangest possible guise. They
thrust a number of bejewelled pins
into printed cotton handkerchiefs
and then roll them round their heads.
They pay not the least attention to
their hair, and only the very gi cat
ladies who have visited the capital
possess combs. As for the many
colored paints, of which they make
an immoderate use, they can only
regulate their distribution by mutual
assistance, and as the women living
irr the same house are so many rivals,
the great object is to render them
ridiculous. They put vermilion on
their lips, rouge on their checks,
nose, forehead and chin, while
wherever there is a vacancy, and
blue aiound the eyes and under
their nose. Stranger still is the
manner in which they paint their
eyebrows. They aio doubtless told
that to be beautiful the eycbiows
should form a huge arch, and they
have hence concluded that the laigcr
, the inch the more beautiful is the
eyebrow, without inepiiiing whether
it's position is not irrevocably fixed
by nature. This being the ease
tl;cy allow their eyebrows all the
space between the temples, and
paint on their foreheads two im
mense arches, which, stinting from
the top of the nose, run across the
forehead. Some young eccentiic
beauties in efer a straight line to a
curve, and tr.ico a bioad black band
across the forehead, but theso are
exceptions." Cleveland Lender'

THE undersigned, a Committee of Di
rectors Of the Equitable Life As.
suiance Society of the United States,
appointed to formulaic the views of the
Board on the advantages oil'ercd by the
Society to the public, report:
1st The Society issues all the approv
cd foims of aisuiance, including Ordl
naiy Life, Endowment and Tontine po.
licics. It ib immaterial to the 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 8,unender value; are iudis.
putablc after three years and payable
immediately after prool of death.
Ud Tho premiums on a Tontine po
licy aie the tame as on the Oidiuary
Lite, but, while the latter is only pay.
able in the event ot death, the holder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
the whole of the reseie and the uAii.
initialed profits rn cash at the end of a
stated peiiod; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing ycais aie past,
he can, without any laiger piemium
than on an oulinary policy, secuio these
4th Experience shows that the tcturn
paid in cash on maturing Tontiuo po.
licics appidximatcs to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that the average cost of tho
assurance will be only about the interest
on the premiums.
5th Tontiuo policies, like others, uro
paid in full in the event of death nt any
time dining the term of the policy, and
aio incontestable after three ycais, and
payable immediately after due proof of
0th Experience shows that tho mor
tality is lower among Tontine policy
holders, ns the better lives seek this
kind of assuuinecs, which is n consider
able source of piotlt.
7th Tontine policies will be made
non-forfcitablo under the laws of the
State, if so desired at the time tho as
suranco is clleclcd.
8th The Tontine system is fair and
just; its accounts are accurately kept,
separate from all other business; tlio
funds judiciously invested nnd improv
ed, nnd the accumulated profits faith,
fully guarded and properly apportioned.'
Dtli The Society has since its organi.
notion tians-ucted it larger amount of
now business than any other company,
while its new business for the ilist half
of tlio present year is $1,750,000 larger
than that of the first half of 1884. It

to Liability is greater than that of any
