IHE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society -of the United States.
10 BROADWAY 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, 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

Assurance Society shows the following strong points:
FIRST The Equitable has a larger ratio of assets to lia
Hlities than any of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved
than any other company.
THIRD The Equitable's death rate was less last year than
any other of the leading companies.
FOURTH The Equitable realize a higher rate of rent, or
interest, on real estate than any other company.

Hayes uud the Ohio Scnatorsliin.
Toledo, O., Nov. 22. A gentleman, in h
position to know whereof he speaks, says
that the use made of tho name oi President
Hayes in connection with the senatorial po
sition from this state was without the
knowledge or consent of the president, and
that he is not and cannot be a candidate
for any position. It is also understood that
the president lavora the return of Sherman
to the senate, ho believing that tho long ex
perience of that gentleman will enable him
to bo of great service, not only to the state
but to the whole nation.
Preparations at Vineennes.
Vincennes, Nov. 22. The remains of
Gov. Williams will reach this city to-mor

are being made by tho citizens of tho city
and county to receivo them with appropri
ate ceremonies. A committeo of eight
prominent citizens left yesterday for In
dianapolis to escort tho remains to this city,
and arc expected to arrive about noon to
morrow. Upon the arrival of tho train a
procession will bo formed and escort the
remains to the court house, where they will
lie in state until Wednesday morning, when
they will bo taken to his homo at Wheat
land, about twclvo miles cast of this city,
for interment. Hon. Henry S. Cauthorn of
this city and speaker of the house of rep
resentatives will deliver tho funeral oration
The court house is draped in mourning as
many business houses and the city's gloom
testifies to tho general feeling ot sorrow
pervading tho community.
The Vote of Indiana.
Indianapolis, Nov. 22. To-day tho
board met to canvass tho presidential vote
of Indiana, but owing to tho fact that tho
Eighth district had not reported tho work
was only partially accomplished. The only
effect of this omissiou will bo to reduce tho
popular majority of tho republican ticket,
and it will not in any way change tho gen
eral result. Tho stato secretary was unable to
account for tho dolay in this district, but a
telegram to Montgomery county brought
the answer that the marshal, Hon. Claudo
Matthews, had tailed to call for them.

What Not to Kill.
The French Minister of Finance
done a good deed in causing a placard
to be posted which it. would be wise lot
citizens of all countries to have beforo
their eves. It tells farmers, sportsmen
and boys and others what creatures J
neretoiore ny a muitiiuuo oi ignorant
people considered to he posts to bo abat
ed not to Kill, as follows:
Hedge-hog Lives mostly on mice,
small rodents, slugs and grubs unirnals:
hurtful lo agriculture. Don't kill the
Toad Farm assistant, ho destroy?
from -'0 to 30 insects per hour. Dou't
kill the toad.
Moln It is continually destroying
grubs, lame, pa.mer worms and insects
injurious to agriculture. No trace oi
vegetation is found in its stomach.
Don't kill the mole.
Birds Each department loses several
milllions annually through insects.
Birds aro the only enemy able to con
tend against them vigorously. They
aro the great caterpillar-killers and ag
ricultural assistants. Children, doiTt
disturb their nest..
Lady-Bird Never destroy, for they;

Changes of Flour in Eccjjniing Bread.
In popular use, says Prof. Horsford,.
we employ the word ""bread" to qualifyi
loaves which aro served in slices. The
rolls aro much smaller. Both consist
alike of crumb and crust. The cnimbl
is made of a multitude of cells of thin'
walls containing carbonic acid gas, the
product of fermentation in tho dough.
These walls of the cell contain both glu
ten and starch and traces of dextrine
and sugar. As a congruence of the
treatment of water and application of
heat, tho starch grains, which in their
normal condition aro little sacs filled,
with minute granules of starch proper,
have been swollen and burst Starph
similarly treated bv itself, as in the pre
paration for stifi'ening linen in the laun-i
dry, when dried in a thin layer upon
eluss plate, for example, is transparent.
and presents a glazed surface. Wheuf
this glazed material is removed with a'
kuifo blade, it is seen to be stiff and,
horny. The gluU'n which is mixed with!
it in the crumb of bread, and which may!
be conceived to be continuous .however
thin throughout the wall of the cell, has,
been, by the process of baking, dehy-j
drated; that is the heat to which it has
been subjected has driven out a certain;
amount of water which chemically

from which it has been expeiieu that ton
water expelled by heat from alum ci
tals sustains to the original body of alum.
On drying, it abstracts the water from
the starch with which it is coated or mti
mutely mixed, as the roasted alum a
sorbs the water that is sprinkled upon it.
Tho starch by this process being Unei
and stiffened, gives its support to t.
walls of the cell, and renders the texture:
of the stale loaf more lirnie than that ot.
the fresh loaf.
A Voracious Eater.
A remarkable feat of eating and
drinking against time is reported by the
Hungarian press, and said to have Dcen.
performed by a youthful Magyaher re-j
siding in Orosswardlen. This surpass-
ing trenchman laid a wager, and is saiti
to have won it with several minutes and
an omelette to spare, that he would be
tween tho hours of 9:30 P. M. and mid
night, devour the following comestible,
it being clearly understood that there
should be a full portion of each dish ire
succession, any two of which portions
may bo estimated as constituting a
hearty meal for a full-grown adult bless
ed by nature with a lively appetite:
Roast beef with paprika sauce and po
tatoes; a Viennese veal cutlet withpeaa;
a fillet of veal with dumplings; prilled
pork and pumpkins; hall a fowl frietf
in batter; bubble and simeak; a beef-!
steak with poached eggs; fried calves'1,
liver; calves' brains and kidneW
pickled veal; stewed beef; a broiled
goose liver, and a fricasseed fowl wltl
carrots. Ho not only contrived to sum
away all the articles enumerated in thk
comprehensive iik, washing then:
down with two quarts of beer, four botJ
ties of old wine, and three of aerated
water; but when ho had cleared the last
of his appointed dishes the clock-dial
then marking ten minutes to 12 ha'
asked for a three-egg omelette, whiol
vanished down his throat before
