TIIE FATAL FOURTH.
"Frederic," said my wife, in the tone of
a dying martyr, "do you really mean to let
your children have, fireworks on the
'I do, my dear."'
'Then I know something drcadlul will
happen. Think of Tom."
"Tom is eleven years old. He must take
his chances like other young scamps of his
"But, Frederic, there are Frank and Dcr
tie, and Jenny, and Lil, and the baby."
Oh dear! I know something will happen."
And my wife shook her head proheticaHy
Here my sister-in-law, Wilhemina, broke
"Never fear; your children will all be
spared to grow up, Mary. Naughty chil
dren always live. For my rart, I think
fire-works are fun," she adds.
Now Mina was a very emphatic young
lady, with the most positive and unchange
able views on the conduct of life. Misa
Italics, I used to call her, because she was
all tor cmphafis, and yet she was such a
small type of a girl.
"Mina, your tastes are entirely too loud,"
my wife said.
The young person tossed her saucy bead,
arched a pair ot delicate eye-brows, then
bounced up and went to the window look
ing down an avenue that leads up to our
country house. Now Mina never bounced
up without jerking down the skirts of a
small jacket she was fond of wearing. It
was a sort of cut-away coat arrangement,
with buttons behind, a bit ot vest in front,
a dash of white linen bosom, and a stand
up collar. To-day the rig was brown silk,
with bits of gold color peeping from mys
terious linings, and cordings. Mina wore
her fair hair short. She shook it out ot
cold water every moruing, parted it on one
side with masculine freedom; then putting
in a pair of turquoise ear-rings, bought,
with feminine coquetry, to match her eyes,
she considered, in her own concise language,
"that top piece fixed." Now Mina was a
girl for which the days ot good Walter
Scott, that maker ot heroines, would have
furnished no model. Cooper's young hunt"
ers never bore su'.h a maiden as Mina safe
ly to the arms of her lamily. Hannah
More would have used my sister-in-law sim
ly as a frightful example. A French nov
elist would ascribe to her more wickedness
than poor Mina would even know how to
name, and then made a dazzling study. In
short, Mina's contradictions in character
would have bothered Shakespeare himself,
and exhausted Ids subtle involutions of lan
guage in painting a picture at once so rude
and gentle, so bold and so shy, such a jolly
fellow and such a very woman. She was
the outgrowth of an unsettled social state,
of a day when women, having struggled out
of their old places, have not yet qui'e
jostled comfortably into their new ones, and
so, feeling a little insecure, they incline to
be defiant. Mina belonged to a woman's
club, where, in the daintiest silks and sweet
est thing in lace, she talked of feminine
ability in every department of severe labor
and scientific research. On returning home
she always went to bed with a headache,
but wits none the less ready to declare her
self fit for marine service, or any other
work commonly held proper for men only.
"If McAllister comes to spend the Fourth
he'll bring all sorts of fire-works," remarked
this enthusiastic young woman, not dis
guising that she was looking out for McAl
lister down the avenue.
"Mina," said my wife, "don't speuk of
men without a decent prefix to their names;
it isn't pretty."
"I don't satit to be pretty," answers
Mina; "Iwnnt to be clever and independent
and strong." Here she shook all her
bangles, and examined a pearl ring on her
"You want to be mannish, don't you?"
Baid I. teasingly.
"Quite the contrary I want to be Hensi
bio." Then, with a careless yawn, as if she
had said a miitter-of-coursu tiling, slio add
ed, "I think I shall take up geology.'
"You'd better be a nice woiuauly girl,
and take up a husband," quoth her sister.
"Take in, you mean," I suggest, by way
"Not at all," answers the ready little

minx; "she means take up, Men can't ar
rivo at any elevated position unless wo
do tako 'cm up."
"Oil, Aunt Hilly," screamed Tom, rushing
into tho room, followed by Muff, our old
terrier, a sleepy, superannuated pet, of
which the children wero very fond.
"Tom, don't call your aunt Billy," says
"Yes, he shall. My name is WUhelmina,
or William, and Billy is good for short. Go
"Aunt Billy, McAllister is coming from
the station, and he's got his arms full of
fire works Roman candles, and rockets,
and pin-wheels, and everything," says the
"Bravo!" cries Mina.
"And Mr. Worth is with him, and ain't
got so much as a cracker," adds Tom, with
"Humph ! I never did like Mr. Worth,"
says Mina, sympathetically.
"He likes you, I bet, Aunt Billy; but
you won't marry him, will you, Aunt Billy?"
asks Tom, who was at that tender age when
the small boy is quite jealous of the aflec
tions of a pretty aunt,
"Marry! NonsensOj child, I wouldn't
marry any man," answers Mina, with very
marked italics. "I have to make a career.'
"What's that?" says Tom.
'Why, it's a a it's writing a great
book, or painting a picture, or going on the
stage, or well it's showing that a woman
is just as clever as a man."
"But a woman ain't," says the ungallant
"You think so because you're only a
child, and ignorant."
"I ain't ignorant neither,"' answers my
eldest hope, whose grammar weakens as his
zeal strengthens. "I say a woman can't
lift a barrel ot flour, and a man can. So."
"Like your father, Master Tom, you con
found muscle with brains. A woman can
do much better than lift a barrel of flour."
"Ho! women git scared," says Tom.
"But never mind; you're a brick, Aunt
Billy, and you shan't marry anybody not
"Ah, now, Tom, I might marry McAllis
ter." "Gus McAllister is a fortune hunter," I
"He's very handsome," says my perverse
sister-in-law, "and has very judicious views
on the woman question hasn't he Muff?"
At this he pulls old Muff's ear, but having
gone to sleep, he makes no sign.

THE EQUITABLE LIFE
10 BROADWAY NEW YORK
The Popularity of t lie Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nual New Rusiners has leen larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known roniptnes in the payment of Death Claims, audits
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
Asa GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious iulluence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new, throughout the United States,
After the policy has been in force for three rears.
"The Equitable Life has paid since its organ
ization to January 1st, liiiJO, 51,8112,730, and
closed its books upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim."
The Equitable Life Assurance Society was the firt to in

And thereby to popularize life inurace to a degree before

states of Massachusetts and New York, the Equitable Life
Assurance Society shows the following' strong points:
FIRST The Equitable has a larger ratio of assets to lia
bilities than any of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income last year
than any other company.
THIRD The Equitable's death rate was less last year than
any other of the leading companies.
FOURTH The Equitable realizes a higher rate of rent, or
interest, on real estate than any other company.
