Then, without any provocation, she asserts,
defiantly, "Well, George Eliot is a woman,
and she writes better than any man."
"Oh, far better," McAllister agrees, eag

that are occupied by men."

The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nual New Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due. in a great measure, to its well
known promptness 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 influence, 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 years.
