The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nual Xew 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;P0LICIES, old and
new, throughout the United States,
After the policy has been in force for three years.

VALUE OF SCARCE COINS.
Of all the decimal United States coins
the most valuable is the silver dollar of
1904, which is excessively rare. Specimens
are worth from $500 to $1,000 each, ac
cording to the nearness with which they
approach perfection. The coinage of this
year was very limited, aud there were no
more dollars coined until 183(1. "Proof
of the last natueuyear are worth $10, and
good examples $5. There wa9 nothing
done iu dollars in 183', ttnd thu issues
of 1833 and 1339 are rare enough
to raise the quotations tor good
specimens to $40 each. From
that date forward to 173, when the trade
dollar came in, there is no break in the
line of dollars, but from 1850 to 183(5, in
clusive, they are quoted as "rare" or
"scarce," those of 1831 and 1832 being
worth $33 or $40 each. Previous to 1804
the value of a "good" specimen vuries from
$1.73 for 1779 to $3 for 1793 aud $4 for
1801, sure that the first date of all (1794),
which is very rare, brings $30. Some of
the early date'i are made peculiarly valua
ble by reason of variation in the num
ber and style of 6tars, etc., there being three
varieties of 1793 and five of 1793.
Of the silver half-dollars, those of 1790
and 1797 are the most valuable, choice ex
amples of these dates being worth from $15
to $20. Good ones ot other years previous
to 1800 will bring from $2 to $4. One of
this class of 1815 is quoted at $2 50, aud
then they are of little rarity until 183C,
when a specimen with reeded edge and
head ot 1837 is valued at $3 or $4. The
other issue of this year is worth $1. The
next dates of note arc 1850, 1831 and 1852,
valued at $1 50, $2 30 and $3 respectively.
More recent dates are only valuable to col
lectors when in perfect condition, "proofs"
ot later issues only being desired, nntl they
range in worth from $1 25 to $8.
Quarter dollars are likewise a specula
tive is?ue, and, therefore, favorites with
dealers, particularly the dates 1823 and
182 1, winch are excessively rare, and com
mand from forty-five to seventy-five dol
lars each. The 1833 issue without arrows
is also much sought ufter, fair specimens
bringing from six to eight dollars. The j
only other dates worth over one dollar for
"good" examples are: 1824, $1 50: 1822.
$2 00; 1819, $1 75; 1815, $2 00; 1807,
$2 00; 1800, $2 00; 1805, $1 50; 1304,
$4 00; and 1790, $4 00.
Silver dimes arc still more valuable as a
class than the quarters, their smaller size
aud more general circulation having made
good specimens rather scarce in all the ear
lier dates. From 1823 back to 1790 they
raogc iu worth from $1 to $7, except in five
instances. The high rates arc: 1824,
$2 50; 1822, $3; 1811, $2 51), 1809, $3;
1807, $2; 1803, $3; 1802, $0; J801 $5;
1800, $7; 1798, $5; 1797, $3, and 1790. $3.
An 1849, witli a draped figure of Liberty,
like 1341 ; is worth $1, as is a good issue
Of all the minor coins, however, an 1802
mlf dime is the chief in cost, tho price
ranging troru f 7 to $00, according to
quality. A good specimen of many other
dates is, nevertheless, a handy thing to have,
as will be noted by tho following quota
tions : Sevouteeu ninety-four, $4 ; 1700, $4 ;
797, $2; 1800, $1 25; 1801, $0; 1803, $4;
1804, $4:1840 (with drapery), $1 184(1;
I 73. From that date until 1873, when
the coinage closed, do unusual worth at
taches to this class. A first-class specimen
of tho last-named dated is worth 00 cents,
For tho three-cent silver piece there is
but little speculative call, as their period
only reachos from 1851 to 1873, including
both of these years. By far the most valu
able of all of them is tho 1853, a perfect
speciman of which is worth $2. From
1803 to 1801) an uncirculated ono i worth
50 cents. And the other date aro of small
value Boston Post.
WHY AUNT SALLIE NEVER HAR
MED. The following "yarn" is an old one, . but
will bear reading several times, and each
time provoke a laugh :
"Now, Aunt Sallie, do please tell us why
you never got married. You remember
you said once that when you were a girl
you were engaged to a minister, and prom
ised us you would tell us about it some
time. Now aunt please tell us.''
"Well, you see, when I was about 17
years old I was living in Utica, in the
State of New York. Though' I say it my
self I was quite a good looking girl then,
and Ud several beaux. The one that took
my fancy was a young minister, a very
pious young man and remarkably steady,
lie thought a good deal of mo Bnd I kiad
of took a fancy to him, and things went
on until we were engaged. Ono evening
he came to mo, and put his arms around
me, wlieu I got excited, and somewhat
duiitrated. It was a long timo
ago, and I don't know but what I mighf
have hugged back a little. I was like any
other girl, and pretty soon I pretended to
be mad about it, and I pushed him away,
though I wasn't mad a bit. You must
know the house where I lived was on ono
of tho back streets of tho town. There
were glass doors in the parlor, which open
ed over the street. These doors were drawn
to. I stepped back a little from him, and
when he came up close I rushed him back
again. I pushed him harder than I in
tended to; and don't you think, girls, the
poor fellow lost his balance and fell through
one of the doors into the street."
"Oh, aunt was he killed T
"No; he fell head first, and as he was
going I caught him by the legs of his
trousers. I held on for a minute and tried
to pull him back, but his suspenders gave
way and the poor young man fell clear out
of his pantaloons into a paroei of ludies and
gentlemen along the street."
"Oh, aunty 1 aunty ! Lordy!"
"There that's right; squall and giggle as
much as you want to. Girls that can't
hear a little thing like that without tearing
around the room and hc-he-ing in such a
way, don't know enough to come in when
it raius. Catching me telling you anything
"But, Aunt Sallie, what lx;came of himf
Did you ever see him againJ"
"No; the moment he touched the ground
ho got up and left that that place in a ter
rible hurry. I tell you it was a sight to bo
remembered. How tho man did run ! He
went out west, and I believe he is preach
ing in Illinois. But he never married. Ho
was very modest, ind I suppose ho was so
badly frightened that time that he never
dared to trust himself near a woman again.
That, girls, is the reason why I never mar
ried. I felt very bad about it for he was
a real good man, and I've often thought to
myself that we should have been very happy
if his suspenders hadn't given way."
SHODDY ARISTOCRACY IN
Indianojoia Sunday Sentinel.
A pirate geuerally sails in a vessel of
lalse colors. This U a compound sin
against humanity and God. But a pirate .
sailing under false colors occasionally de
lights iu unmasking himself aud hoisting
the black ting. This is commendable to a
certain degree, and would bo more so if
the pirate never hoisted any other color,
but let the black flag wave till the wind
ribboned it, the bullets of a wronged na
tion let skylight through its inky folds, or
the hands of a modern Paul Jones tore it
from its stays, and, with a hoarse voice of
victory, placed tho ensign of a conquerijg
nation where it once lloated.
We have in every community false sails
and false sailors. These parade our streeta
with long drawn sighs, enter our theatres,
and with rosy smiles sit in our churches.
These false sailoro we call shoddy aristo
crats. May be there is some better name;
certaiuly none more appropriate. A shod
dy anything is condemued anywhere and
everywhere. A shoddy piece of goods or a
shoddy piece of humanity come under the
same category. Aristocracy is nil right in
itself. But there is just as much difference
between true and shoddy aristocracy, ns
there is between a Puuch aud Judy show
and a gathering of crowned heads.
True aristocracy docs not consist in the
spread of brains upon tho back, nor tho
wasting of taleuts on the hair and mustache.
Nor does true aristocracy consist of a gold
watch, a cigar, an elevated head, and an
utter ignorance of all but "our set," but it
IiK'S imply a common courtesy, a sensible
politeness, and brains which control actions
manlike, woman-like, common sense like.
Shoddy aristocracy means cither of two
things: First, an undue importance which
attaches to a few thousand ; or, fsecondly, an
over big-headedness which springs from
nothing, and aims to make the world sec
the dapping false sails, which in reality
murk the abode of conceit, and of the
spreading peacock, which make up in
plumage and tail what it lacks in brains
and aristocracy. Such creatures do exist.
They live. They live here.
We can tolerate them on tho street, or
on the circus pavillion, but when they
sweep down tho aisles ot God's house, join
on chanting tho Tc Deum, or singing
"Come thou fount ot every blessing," we
listen for tears to fall upon the harp strings
of tho angels, or the stars to atop the songs
which they havo been singing since the
creation. This class of pcoplo in our
churches very much injure the causo of the
Godly, Tho world brands them hypocrites,
because no man can owe another beyond
his ability to pay and ride in his carriage
and wear tine clothes, without being a .
