THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of the United States.
1X0 BROADWAY NEW YORK
The Popularity of tlie 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.
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 has paid since its organ
ization to January 1st, 1880, $51,882,730, 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
riVVVTrPTXTT? 0 TTTVfC
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
l ilities than any of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income last 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 realize a higher rate of rent, or
interest, on real estate than any other company.
The Society takes pleasure in referring to the following; well known busiues

PRESENT FROM THE QUBEN.
Washington, Nov. 23. A present from
Queen Virtoria to the president of the
United States was received at tho white
house to-day in the shape ot a massive desk,
made from timbers of II. M. S. Resolute.
At the cabinet meeting to-day all the
members were present with the exception
of Secretary Ramsey. The session was
very brief and devoted to routine business.
No decision was reached as to the appoint

Gen. Garfield and wifo arrived here this
morning. In consequence of announce
ment by local papers that, in accordance
with the general's request, the proposed
public demonstration would not take place,
but few persons were present at tho railway
station. He was received and warmly wel
corned, however, by Col. Robert G. Ingersoll,
Duputy Quartermaster Gen. Rock
well and a delegation of the Nation
al Tow-rath club, a prominent political
organization of this city. The general and
Mrs. Garfield then drove quietly to their
residence, where, during the evening, they
received a few of their personal friends.
By direction of the president all executive
departments and other government offices
in Washington will be closed Thanksgiving
day and also at noon to-morrow.
Au Unfortunate Delusion.
Exists, that the liver can bo regulated,
and the bowels kept iu a state of elficiency
by the use of mercury, and purgatives ot a
drastic nature. A complcto refutation of
this absurd theory is furnished by tho fact,
that no class of persons suffer more severely
with biliousness and its attendant ailments,
dyspepsia ami constipation, none are more
"out of sorts" than they who habitually use
such remedies. The wisest course they can
adopt, and one productive of speedily bene
ficial results, is to use instead of such perni
cious drugs, Ilostotter's Stomach Bitters,
which accomplishes the work they leave
undone. Botanic in origin, pure, active
and highly recommended by medical men,
this acticle has no affinity with medicines
which act abruptly. It aids, does not
force Nature, and its invigorating effect is
as perceptible as its regulating influence is
prompt and lasting.
