THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of the United States.
l'O BROADWAY NEW YOIUC
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nual New Business lias 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, and its
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists
As a 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.
"The Equitable Life lias 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 Equitable Life Assurance Society was the first to in
TONTINE SAVINGS FUND P0HCT,
And thereby to popularize life insuraee to a degree before
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
l'ilities than any of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income hist 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.

THE ILLINOIS SOCIAL SCIENCE AS
SOCIATION. Tito Illinois Social Bcicnco association
hoM its annual meutingin Chicago, October
8th anil 0th, electing an activo and efficient
bourd of managemout tor tho ensuing year,
Tlio president, Mrs. Helen Ekln Starrc'tt, a
lady of lino literary ability, "and a promi
nent and popular lecturer, lias in Tlio
Western Magazine (of which she is the ac
cotuplibhcd editor) tho following pertinent
"Tho present month witnessed tho meet
ing in Chicago of a largo and influential
body of intelligent and curncst women
known as the Social Hcienco association of
Illinois. This was the third annual meet
ing, and tho papers read and tho subjects
diicussed were unusually aide and inter
esting. No ouo could attend tho meetings
and listen to the papers and discussions
without realizing how much tho thought of
women is enriching tho world, and how
broad is tho scope of their interest in tho
organization and welfare of society. Tho
subjects discussed included methods of
education, sanitary science methods of dis
pensing charity, industrial organization,
oo-qjcrntion and finance.
Tlio Illinois Social Science association is
composed wholly of women. Its methods
and objects, however, are tho same as those
of the American Social Science association
which is national in its scopo and is com
posed of both men and women. Such as
sociation are new, the first having been in
augurated since the war and tho abolition of
slavery, and many seem quite unable to get
any clear idea ot what is meant by the term
Sociul Science, or of tho object and aim of
Sicial Science associations. It is indeed difll
cult to describe or defino in brief but per
haps it is a fair statement to say that
Social Science seeks to discover what great
natural laws afluct tho growth and organi
zation of society; to trace all social effects
to their true causes; to gain a knowledge
ot the conditions that produce health or
disease in tho body politic and by the ap
plication of this knowledge to strive to
mako better the condition of the human
race. The social scientists believe that
these great natural and moral forces are
largely within the power of man to control.
Without exaggeration we may say of So
cial Science in its highest application that
it is the "special providence" of modern civ
ilization; it is the new theology; it is in a
profound sense a search after divine truth.
Its object is the most unselfish that tho
world has ever known; its devotees are
those whoso whole souls are filled with the
enthusiasm of humanity; whose labors
arc for the best good of others, and whoso
benevolent projects compass tho welfare of
generations yet unborn.
Everything that relates to the social wel
fare and happiness of man is ttic special
subject of interest to tho social scientist.
Is a pestilence abroad in the citji While
some appeal directly for aid to tho super
natural power, the social scientist seeks to
discover the broken law that breeds tho
pestilence and causes desolation and
death. Ho examines the sewers
and labors to have sewer gas pre
vented; enters the dwellings of the poor
and degraded !nd commands that the free
air and sunshine of heaven be admitted,
and they come, bringing healing on their
wings, lho pestilence departs anu the
social scientist is no less reverent than the
humblest worshipper who returns thanks to
God for removing it by special interposition,
when he ascribes the work to human agency
through discovery of aud obedience to the
laws of health.
Crime is rampant in certain districts,
and the religionist prays that tho spirit of
God may bo poured out anu the poopie
converted from sin. Tho social scientist
goes into the districts; he tears down
crowded and unhealthy tenements; ho es
tablishes schools; he makes acccssiblo the
couttorts and conveniences of lite; ho em
ploys the laborer and pays him honestly and
fuirly. Crime diminishes; tho people are
elevated, and tho social scientist ascribe the
work to tho Divine spirit much niore in
telligently and devoutly than the man who
merely prayed. This is tho science of an
sweriug our own prayers; it is tho revela
tion of good will towards men that is
shown by tlio discovery that the divine
laws, like countless all potent agencies,
surround us on every hand. Among them
wo live and move and havo our being, and
when wo would accomplish certain results
we need only to understand and lay hold
upon these mighty forces, and lol the
power to remove mountains is in our own
Tho Social Science association is the
flower and fruit of all other human associa
tions. It is possiblo only in tho most
civilized and enlightened and humanized
society. Tho benefits that flow from its
work are as all-pervading as the sunlight
and air, which bless alike tho evil and tho
good, or the rain that falls impartially upon
the just and tho unjust."
It is purposed by the board of manage
ment to hold several meetings in different
parts ot the state during the year, one of
which will be held in Cairo at any early
date. It is expectod that a number of the
prominent ladies of the association, in Chi
cago and other cities will attend aud a fine
literary programme will be prosentea on
that occasion. Tho hearty co-operation of
all pcrsoiiB Interested iutho organization and
welfare ot society and tho elevation, intel
lectually and morally of social life, is cor
dially requested. Ladies desirous of
idnntifvinir themselves with tho association
can do so through the secretary, Mrs. II. II.
Handy, 41)7 West Washington street,
Chicairo. or any member of tho association.
Tho careful study of the science of living,
deserves our best thought ana ciiort.
