OLD HILL LEE.
AN AITLAL 1'Olt IIIM WHICH IS WOLTIIV UK
Quite every man, woman and child iu
this city knows "Old Rill Lee." For full
twenty years, now, he lias been one of
Cairo's "olijects"- one of her curiosities
one of her pecitlar characters one of the
results of her institutions an object to lie
scoffed, stoned, laughed at, commiserated
aid pitied. All of this and more has Old
Rill been to Cairo. And what has Cairo
been to Old Rill! Cairo lias been his honn
the only home he cwr knew from boy
hood up (he city where his miserable life
has wasted away to a mere spark; a
single (bread as it were, that any
hour of any day may see snapped asunder.
What life has been to him, few if any know,
what it is now; it is my purpose to tell the
best I may to the good and charitable read
ers of the "great religious organ of the
west," Tut: Daily Caiiui Rlli.kti.n. In an
old. miserable, dilapidate. I shanty that af
fords little protection from hi heat or the
cold iive "Old Rill Lee" and his ninety-,
year-old mother. This poor oid creature
lies there mi a pile of rope and straw
that would be considered ali
together an inferior resting place for any
dumb animal, much h s, tor the aiding
bones of a poor half starved, half naked
old, old woman. This old soul and her
wretched son, "Old Ihll..' have no ni. nns of
support, whatever, and no mean, at all. ex
cept the pitiful pitatice of two d dlars a
week that is allowed them by the c-mrt.
To be sure (hey could go to the poor !iue,
but they will not. Rut is that
any good reason, or any reason ut
all, why they should no be allowel
a sum equal to what the expense of their
keep in the poor houv would lie to live on
in their own shanty: There are many chari
ties to be sUstab-cd iu the city and county,
we know; but there is not one per-on or one
family so utterly helpie and utterly needy
as old '"('ran L 'e" aud her .ni, -OM Rill."
That tle ir lives have not been such as arc
commendable, i not to i. considered now a!
this late a date. That ti.ey nr.- drunker, ami
low and besotted and f'.-thy. should bo lot
s ght of, in the greater consid -rations of
their present sufferings. "Old (Iran" is
toothless; hi-r stomai li is weak as her i n
feeblcl intellect, and she is literally and
absolutely peiishing for proper nourish

''THE ORIGIN OF TONTINES"AND I5Y
WHOM INTRODUCED INTO LIFE
Tontine annuities which were fir.st ma le
attractive by Loreuz Tonti, about the mid
dle of the seventh century, have become
exceedingly populur throughout Europe,
and iu some parts of South America. A
Tontine is quite the reverse of life assur
ance; as it consists of a combination of
persons w ho contribute to a common fund
which shall be enjoyed by the survivors
only; so that as years roll ou and the mem
bers surviving diminish : the income is. of
course, constantly increasing to those who
live; until the last members of a class en
joy most extraordinary advantages from the
system. In 1 .!) t. .survivor of the
Tontine in France, a widow, just before her
death, enjoyed an income equivalent to
about f.m.lKjo, of our money for her orig
inal subscription of about $-0. So
popular has this system been in
Europe, that governments have used it f r
tne purpose of raising money for national
support. The system now in practice by
the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
though different from either Tontine or
Life Assurance, combines the advantage,
o! both, mid was brought out under ti e
supervision of two well known mathematician-,
Mr. George. W. Phillips, actuary
Equitable Life Assurance Society of the
United States ami Mr. Mieppard II'mes,
author of the contribution plan of divi
dens. The system is known as the "Future
Savings Fund Plan" and at the time of its
introduction into iife aurancc by tic
Equitable Life Assurance Society of the
United Mat.-s. was strongly endorsed by
many leading mathematicians in thh;
coun'ry and Europe. William Rums, then
superintendent of the insurance depatinert
of tiie state ot New Yolk, wrote, to Mr.
Geo. W. Phiilips under date of February
