TUESDAY, FEB. 2, 1880.
How to live morally in reality in
eludes bow to live physically. Yet
it is to bo feared that a great many
in this world forget what it is to bo
just to the body. The impositions
upon our human natures nro often
self-inflicted. The race of fast
livers is rapidly increasing. It is
not wonderful that in these clays of
rapidity, man himself should rush
on, and in many ways lose his bal
ance. It is altogether probable that
Methuselah had very little to hurry
him, and that the modes of doing
business as late as the lloinan Em
pire, had but little of tho hot haste
of the present day. "When we arc
rushed along by steam at the rate
of fifty or sixty miles per hour, and
can have intelligence from around
tho globe in a day, it is inevitable
that business methods will receive a
like impetus, and that men and
women will seek to crowd into a day
what formerly took a week. The
influence extends into every walk
and run of human life. Just as
every mile of speed, added to the
locomotive after it has attained a
high rate, adds tenfold to wear and
tear ; so in this human race, it is
the stress and strain beyond a cer
tain mark that puts the whole frame
work into a state of tension. It is
true that, by early and continued
training, method may bo so attained,
and an automatic response so se
cured, that one does with case what
would exhaust another. Hut the
.measure of the capacity must be
known to the person himself.
Japid eating is one of the first dc
velonracnts of this haste. It must
be ludicrous to a restaurant boy to
see a cow chewing her cud, and
quietly resting in placid enjoyment.
The idea of resting and recreation
and deliberation in eating, no longer
occupies the thought of the average
American boy, much less of the
business man. Yet the power of
life depends as much upon this as
upon any one conduct of life. The
relation of tho chewing nnd the
juices of the mouth to the after di
gestion, all along the digestive track,
and to that assimilation which is to
give force and vigor to woik, is
such that we cannot afford to foiget
the essential relationship. The fail
ure of this part of the apparatus to
do its part, docs not involve immedi
ate loss of power or bed-ridden
sickness, but is a more frequent
limitation upon forceful life than
any one disability. A thorough di
gestion not only leaves the mind
clear, and the nervous system placid,
but so piovidcs the physical and
mental machinery w itU its propelling
power as to make thought as natural
as if it were a physical function. It
is not dilllcult to sec in the work,
as well as in the writings, of some
men the traces of a bad physical
condition. Emerson overstated the
case when ho said that the sick man
is on the road to rascality, but,
nevertheless, did indicate what iH
true, that a man iu a chronic state
of embarrassed digestion is out of
gear with himself and the lest of
mankind. We believe that the
foundations of many an incapacity
arc laid in this want of quiet, de
Methods of study, to a large de
gree, have similar enors. Tho
cramming process is still too popu
lar. It is not always that the
amount of study assigned is too
great. Oftencr the child leaves the
work to be crowded into too small a
space of time, or to hours which arc
those of tiro and sleepiness. The
mind is with difllculty goaded on to
its woik, and what is accomplished
is at a mucli greater expenditure of
vital force. So as to methods of
business, too much is done under
the pressure and excitement of hurry,
and in such a way that as few hours
as possible may be occupied.
Irregular meals and irregular
Bleep come in for their share of in
fluence. Because the system seeks
in some degree to adjust itself to
the forced conditions, the person is
too apt to coucludc that it is no
serious matter. But observers, oven
on change, aic noting tho effects.
There are fewer middle-aged and
old men that continue to do busi
ness than formeily. Young life is
at tho head of most mercantile and
banking establishments. The num
ber that arc retiring too early from
actual break-down or premature old
age is undisguised. There is need
to order a halt to all this fast living.
Most men arc happier uot to retire
too early fiom active life, oven if
they have a competency. All nio
happier with employment, if tho ces
sation is tho result of damaged
health. AVo cannot cross tho ocean,
or tarry a summer or a -winter at
any great resort, without noting
how many there are who arc only
partial invalids, and yet whoso life
work is restricted by imprudence as
to the care of life. If, now, a man
past sixty is found in tho full en
joyment of business activity, ho is
looked upon as rather a wonder.
Such uien as Metteniieh, Ncssel
roilCt Polmcratou, Gladstone nnd
Victor Hugo c ecarco on .Vhlg side
pf tho wivtcr. While there aro a
very few that survlvo fast living, t
you will gather the histories of one
thousand persons over Bixty-flvo
years of age, it will bo found that,
both by good inheritance nnd care
ful living, tho race is prolonged.
Tho laws of self-control nnd self
restraint need to bo brought more
thoroughly to bear on each indivi
dual life. For, next to character,
health is tho best capital to have in
this world. Ho who spends tho
thrift of a good constitution is a
spendthrift more than he who is
careless as to accumulating wealth.
The New York State libiary con
tains 128,000 volumes. In it is a
book which cost SI, GOO. It is the
first publication of the laws of the
colony of New York, and bea'is date
1091. There are but four other
copies in existence. The volume
was needed to complete a set, and
being rare, thcie was gicat competi
tion for it.

THE undersigned, a Committee of Di
rectors of the Equitablo Life As.
suronco Society of tho United States ,
appointed to formulate the views of fir
Board on tho advantages oflercd by 1 r
Society to the public, report:
1st Tho Society issues all the appro . '
ed forms of aisurancc, including Ordi
nary Life, Ei dowment and Tontine po.
llcies. It is immaterial to tho Directors
which form of policy is taken by m.
2d The Lifo and Endoiymcnt forms
of policy provide for annual cash divl.
(lends and a smrender value; are indis.
putablo after three years and paj able
Immediately after proof of death.
3d Tho premiums on a Tontine po
licy aro tho same ns on the Ordinary
Lite, but, while tho latter is only pay.
ablo In the event of death, the holder of
tho Tontine policy has the right to draw
tho whole of tho reserve and the accu.
mulatcd profits in rash at the end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years are past,
ho can, without any larger premium
than on an ordinary policy, securo these
4th Expcrleneo shows that tho return
paid in cash on maturing Tontlnopo.
Ilcics approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that the avcrago cost of the
assurance will bo only about the Interest
on tho premiums.
Cth Tontlno policies, like others, aro
paid In full In tho ovent of death at any
time during tho term of tho policy, and
aro incontestable after three years, and
payablo Immediately after duo proof of
0th Experience shows that the mor.
tallty Is lower among Tontino policy
holders, as tho better lives seek this
kind of assurances, which Is a consider
able source of profit.
7th Tontine policies will bo made
non-forfeltablo under the laws of the
State, if so desired at tho timo the as
suranco is effected.
8th Tho Tcntine system is fair and
just; its accounts are accurately kept,
separate from all other business: the
funds judiciously Invested and improv
ed, and tho accumulated profits faith,
fully guarded and properly appoitioncd.
0th The Society has since its organi.
zation transacted a larger amount of
new business than any other company,
whllo its nev business for the first half
of the prcsrnt year is $1,700,000 larger
than that if tho first half of 1884. It
has Assets of $00,000,000; over $14 000
000 of Su'plus, and its ratio of Surplus
to Liability Is greater than that of any
other company. '
