THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of the United States.
lO IHvOADAVAY NISW YOKK
The Popularity t)f the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleyen 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.
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 policy has been in force for three years.
"The Equitable Life has paid since its organ
ization, to January 1st, 1880, 51,832,736, 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 P0IICY,
And thereby to popularize life insnrace 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 of assets to lia
bilities 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 Society takes pleasure in referring to the following' well known bnsines

The other day this sedentary born

when suddenly the oflieial, who had

His friend goes like the visions of
youth, never to return.
A Parrot Yarn.
A lady friend is very fond of parrots,
and determined to get one at any cost.
Living near by her was a Frenchman,
who owned a very fine specimen of the
bird, and the lady threw longing and
covetous eyes at it. It could talk like a
woman, and Mrs. Blank at last resolved
to own that parrot. The other day,
being acquainted with the, Frenchman,
she made up her mind to a-sk him to
part with it. She called upon him to
part with it. She called upon him for
"Now, Mr. Napoleon," she pleaded,
"you must let me havo that parrot"
"Oh, madame," ho said, "I could
not part wiz the parrote for any price.
He voz zo choy of my what you call
him? Oui, household. I havo been
offair fccl'ty dollair of ho. I would not
take to tousand dollair for he?"
She pleaded in vain. Napoleon could
not be moved.
A few days later she called again,
but still the Frenchman was immovable.
"I tell you what I do. I gee you two
nice parrote eggs for ten dollar. All
you haf to do is to place r.em in some
cotton, and soy hatch zemsclves out
two magnifique parroto peards,"
The bargain wad made, and the lady
withdrew in a delighted frame of mind.
She did as directed, and in course of
time the eggs were hatched; but, in
stead of "two parrote," a brace of the
finest young ducks that ever made a
hole in the water put in tin appearance.
Mrs. Iilank hurried to the man and
berated him soundly for the deception.
Mr. Napoleon looked surprised.
"Madame," he protested, "I saw ze
femalo parroto lay zoso eggs wiz my
own two eyes. She was ze finest peard
in zo world, but I can not vouch for ze
morality of zo parroto."
The Colored Juryman.
oen. i nomas Harrison, who was
commander of a Texas regiment dur
ing the war, and known by tho boys as
tho "Jim Town Major," was soon after
the war elected Judge of ono of tho
districts of Texas. Shortly after his
election he visited one of the counties
in his district for the purpose of hold,
ing his court Ho arrived at tho coun
ty town on Sunday evening, and sent
for the Sheriff and asked him if a jury
had been summoned for tho court, and
if any upon the jury were colored.
The Sheriff replied he had summoned
a jury, but there were no colored men
on tho jury, and but few in the county.
Judge Harrison told him, under the re
cent order of the Department Com
mander, no legal jury eould be impan
eled snless one or more negroes were
on it, and ordered him to nave some
negroes in attendance on the following
morning, to be placed upon the jury.
The Sheriff, after some trouble, suc
ceeded in finding three or four negroes,
and upon organizing the court Judge
Harrison placed one on each jury.
About the first case called was one
against a party for murder. After
hearing the evidence, arguments of
counsel, and charge of the court tho
jury started down-stairs to. consider
their verdict the colored juror happen
ing to be in the rear. Following them
was the attorney for the defendant At
tho head.ot tho stairs (and in hearing
of the colored juror) tho attorney was
asked by a friend how he thought the
case would bo decided. Tho reply
was, "I think tho defendant will bo ac
quitted or tho jury will bo hung."
Tho jury went down the steps and
out in tho yard, and upon looking
around tho colored member was miss
ing. Upon investigation, they saw him
making 2:10 time in tho direction of
tho brush. The Sheriff was called;
and, after a vigorous pursuit, Mr. Ju
ror was captured and brought before
tho court and asked why ho had run
awny. His reply was, "lie had heard
a gentleman Bay if tho man wasn't
cleared tho jury would bo hung, and
nnd as lie liadn t done notmng ne
didn't want to take any chances." ,

Its eloquence never ceases; from th
rising of the sun to the going aow

with all their convincing argument!
It language never descends from sul

the comprehension of the unlettereil
and fascinates the scholastic with th
nuritv of its diction. It liohls out nJ
wild inducement, it utters no false

truths. It asserts no false dogmas, l
deals not in sophistry and it abhors
prevarication. It breathes no insinua

and plain assertions.
It most potent arguments are utter

While striving to its utmost tension ii
is most convincing. Its proofs are om
nitircsent, self-evident and irrefutable.
It recognizes facts nnd ignores postu

sound of labor breaks upon the stillness

eloquence is generated in tho narrow

Not very long ago a portion of hard
dry skin was found underneath the em
bossed head of a )iuge iron nail that
was fixed into the door of. tho Chapter
House, at Westminster. Upon thitr
skin were found several hairs. Mr.!
Quekett, Curator of the Museum of tha
Collego of Surgeons, recognized the
hair to bo human, and asserted that it
belonged to a fair-haired person- In
former times the Danes used to corns
up the mouths of the English rivers to
pillage the churches. When they wera
caught they were skinned, and their
skins nailed to the door of the churck
they attacked. In the course of time.'
all tho exposed portion would peel off;
that covered by the nail would reruai
protected, and thus bear testimony to
tho cruelty of our ancestors. , In tha
College of Surgeons may be seen three
specimens of human skin, presented by
Mr. Albert Way, viz.; "Portion of hu--'
