THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of the United States.
l'O "B ROADWAY NEW YORK
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 policv has been in force for three years.
"The Equitable Life has paid since its organ
ization to January 1st, 1880, $51,882,736, and
closed its books upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim."
The Equitatde Life Assurance Society wa the first to iu
trod nee the
TONTINE SAVINGS FUND POLICY,
And thereby to popularize life
By the late report of the Insurance Commissioner for the
states of Massachusetts and New York, the Equitable Life
Assurance Society shows the following strong points:
FIRST The Equitable has a larger ratio ot assets to lia
I ilities than any of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income hist year
than any other company.
THIRD The Equitable death rate was less last year than
any other of the leading companies.
F0URT1I The Equitable realize a higher rate of rent, or
interest, on real estate than any other company.
The Society take pleasuru iu referring to the following well known biwiued

Mississippi Eiver Iiuprovoinont Con
vention. Nkw Orleans, La., Nov. 17. The Mis
sissippi river improvement convention was
permanently organized to day, with Judge
II. F. Simrall, ot Mississippi, president,
and one vice president from each state ot
the Mississippi valley. The president de
clared on taking the chair that the question
they had met to consider belongs aiike to
all parties. It was a national question
in the broadest sense, and virtually
concerned nearly one-half the population of
the country, with whom the cheap trans
portation of theproducts of their fields to
market overshadowed all other material
considerations. A committee on resolu
tionsand an address to congress was form
ed to remain in continuous session till the
neit convention; also a permanent com
mittee on statistics to furnish congress with
necessary information relating to the ob
jects of the convention.
Sherman aud the Ohio Senatorship.
Colcmiicp, O., Nov. 17. Q. D. Meyers,
of the Columbus Evening Dispatch, receiv
ed the following letter from Secretary Sher
Washington, D. C, Nov. 15, 1880.
Mr Dear Sir I understand that from
my letter to you, of which I have no copy,
you have some doubt3 of my position. I
intended to gay to you that while I could
make no personal effort to secure the place
of senator, I would gladly accept it and, if
elected, would faithfully serve the people
of Ohio in that position. Very truly yours,
Signed John Sherman.
A double-leaded editorial appears show
ing the merits he possesses for the position
and calls on every republican in Ohio to
assist iu electing him to that position.
The Official Vote of New York,
New York, Nov. 17. Tho official can
vass of New York state has been made, al
though the roturn of New York city has
not yet been sent to Albany. It shows that
in the state Garfield has 30,933 majority;
outsido of New York city his ma
jority is 03,318. Hancock's majority in this
city is 41,285. It is thus made apparent
that had New York city given Hancock as
large a majority as it did Tildcn, 33,000,
and had Brooklyn done as well as in 1870,
Garfield would then have bad a majority
iti the entire state, but with the increased
registry of 33,000 this year the democratic
majority should have been at least 30,000
more in New York city and 7,000
more in Brooklyn, which would
have elected Hancock. The majority, as it
is in New York state, w so much turgor
thau has been claimed by the democratic
newspapers who placed it at 14,000 only,
that those who wero hoping to nullify the
result by proving great frauds upon the
republicans are somewhat discouraged to
night, and it is plain that little more will be
heard of tho claim.

Hints to Barbers.
Nearly everybody has read lfyk
Twain's experiences abroad in getting
shaved, ana who has not laughed at
the description of his anticipations of
enjoying the bliss of a Parisian share
and iu lamcutablo scquol. In a recent
article iu the Ilarttord t'ourant he
treat tho subject seriously. He says :
It is safo to suy that nine out of tea
of the men one meets on the streets in
our cities shave, or rather are shaved.
Some shave tho rnustacho, some shavo
the chin, some the cheeks. Indeed,
out! must go into mathematics to the
tublosof permutations and combina
tions to Cud how many varieties of
Hhitving are possible. Woman Is ac
cused of being the party who devotes
her time to appearances and frivoltics
of tho mirror, out, after all, man does
his share of it. . The reason he escapes
is that he blandly sets down his dec
orative work as being a matter of ne
cessity. Ami it is true that shaving is a
very old custom, nor have we any
thing to suy against it, except that it
is unnatural, mid is, and should bo
acknowledged to be, a concession to
the looking-gluss and to vanity. But
tho point Is tint old as is tho art, it is
a singular thing how few know how
to shave. "Nearly all men share in
tho passive voice." This may be ta
ken as the grammatical phrase or as
.... ...i i. i . ( .i.
nil ,ii;iwiiotv icugciiiuui 01 viie iwiw
the barber which they havo to en-
. . .... k
dure, h.ich signification la true, ami
while nearly all mcu consout to reifj'
their shaving to a tew who make it
business, only a fraction of that few
understand their art.
There is a financial blunder at the
bottom of it that makes t rouble all
throuzh. The doirma that a shavo I'
a shave is a mistake. Olio nun with
a still' bcnrJ and a full I'aco willchoo
to have his whole expausive couutciV
ancc clean shorn ; another will snavo
ou ins upper lip. lo eucu it was a
"shave," and each is charged alike.
One may requite thirty minutes at-i
teulioii, the other ten minutes. The
first will dull a iH.or, tho second not
affect iu edge. To each it is 10 ccuts.
Now, a barber's working day, wo
will assume, is ten hours long, if he
is occupied three-quarters of the time,
he must 1)0 busier than usually ap
pears. This gives him 6cven hours'
labor, and if he struck a day of half,
hour luces, his whole receipts wonld
be $1.40. if his luck gave him ten
minute cases, he would take in $4.30.
liven this would uot pay were it not
for the seductive side issues the hair
cuts and shampoos of the trade that
bring in more per hour llian tho fun
Now, as the price and the circum
stances of shaving go, it is a constant
hurry to finish a man, as shaving
scarcely rays at the best, and if he is
ouo of tho most absorbing subjects
full shave and stiff beard it is a loss
to work upon him. To shave him
carctully takes too much time and
costs the edge of the razor. To skim
UVCL Ilia LUltj vu.biiig vu mijivua via
beard here and there, and leaving odd I
oases of hair along the deserts of the I
check, saves the razor and spoils tho
person who pays lor the operation,
und who should not bo entirely tor
gotten. The scale of prices ought to
be regulated by what one gets, and
barbers ought have tho courage to
chargo for what they do.
This done, a revolution in tho art
would follow. Speed would not be
the great aim. Attention could bo
given to tho removal of the beard,
which, in old times, it was as impor
tant to remove as the lather, and tho
man who went out of tho barber's
shop would leavo satisfied, instead of
hoping that tue next time it would do
better. We recommend theso consid
erations to tho trade without chargo
lor the advice. Shaving is a custom of
civilization : playing witu soap bub
blcs is a camo of childhood. It is
now a matter of luck which of these
operations falls to the barber's patron
Ludorick Cortusius, an eminent
lawyer, who died at Padua on the 15th
of July, 1518, when upon his dcatu
bed forbade his relations to shed tears
at his funeral, and oven put his heir
under a heavy penalty if ne neglected
to perform his orders. On the other
hand he ordered musicians, singers,
pipers, fiddlers, ot all kinds, to supply
the place of mourners, and directed
that fiftvof them should march before
Ids corpse wilh tho clergyman, play
ing upon their several instruments.
For this service he ordered each of
them half a ducat. Ho likewise ap
pointed twelru maids iu green habits
to carry his corpse to the Church of
St. Sophia, where ho wus to be bunou,
and that they, too, as they went along;
should siug aloud; having, eacu ot.
them, as a recompense, a haudsome:
sum of money allotted for a rnarrlage
portion. All the clergy of Padua
marchod before in lung procession,!
together with all the monks of tho
convent, except those wearing black'
habits, whom ho expressly excluded
by his will, lest the blackness of their
hoods should throw a gloom upon tho
cheertulnoss of tho procession, XoUt
