THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of
10 B It OADWAY 1ST K VV YOH K
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated hy 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 ami
new, throughout the United States.
After the policy has been in force for three years.

any other of the leading companies.

sore throat, hoarseness and bronchial affec
tions. For thirty years theso Troches have
been in use, with annually increasing favor.
They are not new and untried, but, having
been tested by wide and constant uso for
nearly an entire generation, they have at
tained well-merited rank among the few
staple remedies of the age.
The TiinoAT. "Brown's Bronchial Tro

in all disorders of the throat and larnyx, re

Mrs. Winslow's Soothiso Syrup Rev
Sylvanus Cobb thus writes in the Boston
Christian Freeman: We would by no
means recommend any kind of medicine
which we uul not know to bo good par
ticularly tor infants. But of Mrs. Wins'
low'j Soothing Syrup we speak from
knowledge: in our own tamily, it has prov
ed a bleasiug indeed, by giving an infant
troubled with colic pains, quiet sleep, and
the parents unbroken rest at night. Most
parents can appreciate these blessings.
Here is an article which works to perfection,
and which is harmless ;for the sleepwhich It
affords the infant is perfectly natural, and
the little cherub awakes ns "bright as a
button." And during the process of tooth
ing, its value is incalculable. Wc havo
frequently heard mothers eay that they
would not be without it from the birth of
the child till it had finished with tho teeth

lingering diseases of tho throat and lungs,
Dr. King's New Discovery has no equal
and has established for itself a world-wido
reputation. Many leading physicians
recommend and use it in their practice.
The formula from which it is prepared is
highly recommended by all medical jour

TnE OHIO SENATOKSIUI'.
New York, Nov. 25. A Washington
dispatch says Gen. Garfield has neither
time nor inclination to take any part in the
contest for the senatorship in Ohio, and
supposes there will be no question raised in
tho senato about the admission of the
clwice of the Ohio legislature. Judge
Lawrence, first comptroller, has written a
letter on the subject to show the right of
the legislature to elect another in the place
of Mr. Garfield. That there may be no
question about it a joint resolution will be
offered on the meeting of congress exempt
ing Ohio from tho terms of the congress
ional act in selecting a senator to fill the
vacaucy beginning with the 4th of March,
Gen. Garfield, as soon as he arrived in
Washington, put an end to tho unseemly
quarrel of the iival committees desiring to
take charge of tho inauguration ceremonies
The general, when told of the petty differ
ence existing, is said to havo remarked, "If
thero is anything I detest it is discord."
The combination committee took tho hint,
tho citizens filing to the left and office hold
ers to the right, leaving tho chairman with
authority to appoint 0 new committee of
TREATIES WITH CHINA.
Washington, Nov. 25. The secretary of
state this morning received a telegram from
the commissioners at Peking under date of
the 10th inst., informing him that on that
day two treaties were signod, one of com
merce and the other concerning immigra
tion. Mr, Prescott was to leave Peking
on the 20th inst. and to bring homo tho
treaties by the first steamer.
By previous telegram Evarta had been in
formed that the immigration treaty secured
to this country the control and regulation
of the introduction of Chinese laborers by
our own legislation. Tho details of tho
commercial treaty are not yet known.
An Unfortunate Delusion.
Exists, that the liver can bo 'regulated,
and the bowels kept in a stato of efficiency
by tho uso of mercury, and purgatives ot a
drastic nature. A complcto refutation of
this absurd theory is furnished by the fact,
that no class of persons suffer more severely
with biliousness and its attendant ailments,
dyspepsia and constipation, none are moro
"out of sorts" than they who habitually uso
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, Ilostctter' 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, docs not
force Nature, and its invigorating effect is
as pcrccptiblo as its regulating influence Is
prompt and lasting.
