Hon. Koswcll G. Horr of IMiclii
gan thinks there nrc inoro ai vor
dollars in existence than the govern
ment books show. He suspects thnt
there are private mints at work,
making the handsome profit of luiotit
20 per cent, on the dollars they coin.
This would be a thriving business,
and the dollars would be worth just
as much as those which are mad ; by
Uncle Sam. A very small plant
might turn out, say, a thousand a
day, on which the net profits would
be about 8150. Boston Herald.
li eland would be better fixed poli
tically if its condition should be
made like a state in our Union,
rather than like a province the same
as Canada. Canada lias no repre
sentation in the imperial Parliament.
Great Britain ought to have a Par
liament for imperial purposes, with
representatives from her depend
encies, and another for her local
affairs. It has long been apparent
that the British Parliament cannot
properly consider both general and
local matters. Boston Herald.
To print the Sundny Herald on
our press, it would require 1,020,000
impressions, and would take tj days,
running day and night without a
minute's rest. Shades of Ben Frank
lin! What would the father of
printing in this country think of a
modem newspaper press in com
parison with the old hand press lie
used, that would print not over a
hundred impressions an hour.

As pioof of the superiority of Ilol
stelns as beef cattle, we call attention
to the following statement:
In the winter of 1881 and 1885, We
cau-ed to he slaughtered the recorded
HoNtcIn bull Syracuse (822), calved
Apill 21th, 1882; the recorded cow
Signet (1817), calved April 0th. 18W,
and Little Wonder (1788), calved .May
14th, 1880, with the following result:

Syracuse and Little Wonder had not
been fattened for beef, and Signet wo
had fed for some time, hut she was not
what beef men would lcgaid fat.
Taking everything Into consideration,
we think this shows decidedly to the
advantage of Ilolstelns as beef "animals.
The butchers that purchased and cut
up the careasscs of Signet and Little
Wonder' send us the following strong
testimonial as to the quality of these
two cow s :

rpHE undersigned, a Committee of Di
X rectors ot the Equitable Life As
surance Society of tho United States
appointed to formulate the views of the
Hoard on the advantages offered by tho
Society to the public, report:
1st Tho Society issues all the approv
ed foi ms of assurance, Including Ordf
nary Life, Ei dowment nnd Tontine po
licies. It Is immaterial to the Directors
which form of policy is taken by in
2d The Lite and Endowment forms
of policy provide for annual cash dlvl
dends and a surrendet value; are lndis.
putable after three years and payable
immcdlatelv after nrnnl nt ilnnii.
!ld The premiums on n Tontine po
licy are the same as on tho Ordinary
Lite, but, whilo 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 nnd the nccu
mulated profits in rash nt 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
paid iu cash on maturing Tontine po.
llcles approximates to or exceeds the
amount of piemiums paid by policy
holders, so that the average cost of tho
assurance will bo only about the interest
on the premiums.
Cth Tontine policies, like others, nro
paid In full In tho event of death nt any
lime during the term of the poliey, and
nro incontestable after three yeius, and
payable immediately after due proof of
Cth Experience shows that tho mor.
tallty is lower among Tontino policy,
holders, as tho better lives seek this
kind of nssurances, which is a consider,
able source of prollt.
7th Tontine policies will be made
non-forfeitablo under tho laws of the
State, if so desired at tho tlmo the as
surance Is effected.
8th Tho Tontine system is fair nnd
just; its accounts are accurately kcrt,
separate from all other business; tl.o
funds judiciously invested nnd improv
ed, and tho accumulated protlts faith,
fully guarded and properly apportioned.
0th The Society has since its organl
zation transacted a larger amount of
now business than any other company ,
while its new business for tho first half
of the present year is $1,700,000 larger
than that of tho first half of 1884. It
has Assets of $00,000,000; over $14 000,
000 of Surplus, and its ratio of Surplus
to Liability is greater than that of auy
