THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of the United States.
lO 13 II OADW AY N 15 W YOKK
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, audits
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, 51,882,736, 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

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

SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income last year
than any other company.
THIRD The Equitable' 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.

Almost the entire of yesterday tore
noon was consumed in Judge Olmsted's
court by a hotly contested case in which
Mr. Thos. Median and the American Union
Telegraph company were tho interested

Elizabeth Cady Stanton thinks women
ought to write their names in full, as she
does, and not allow themselves to be repre
sented by letters, like a spool of thread or a
barrel of flour. A spool of thread or a bar
rel of flour is much more useful than most
of the women who like to display their own
names. A woman may be as vain and fool
ish in one way as another, and she may as
well exhibit her vanity in dry goods as in
the pomposity of her name. What if Mrs.
L D. E. N. Southworth were to be led
astray by this absurd notice of Elizabeth's?
What printing office would be able to stand
the strain? Not The Bulletin.
Young ladies, in the language of
slang, often ''kick" the young men, thereby
breaking their hearts and driving them to
suicide, but it is seldom that we hear of a
young lady "kicking" herself into sorrow.
A few nights ago at Earlham College, near
Richmond, Indiana, after the lights had
been turned down lor the night, the merry
girls concluded to indulge in tho luxury of
a kicking match. At long as they kicked
in a rational manner and to a reasonable
height with only one foot, hilarity reigned
supreme, but when ambitious Miss John-:
son, of Ilokoino, attempted to kick a square
yard of plaster from the ceiling with both
feet at once, it resulted, as all such cases
should, in gloom and misery. The reck
less young lady lost her balance, fell heavi
ly to the floor and was so badly stunned
that sho had to bo taken to the nursery,
where she still lies suffering from a severe
attack of nervous prostration and other
injuries. Moral for the girls: Be sure
you're right, then kick ahead.
The Springfield State Journal (repub
lican) says: "Hon. John H. Oberly ap
pears to be in request as the editor of the
democratic papers at several points in the
state. It has already been reported that,
at the expiration of his term of office as
railroad commissioner, he would go back
to his first love, Tub C'.vnto Bulletin. It
is also stated that a strong combination of
Oberly and Dowdall, of the Peoria Demo
crat, has been projected we forbear, in
this connection, to quote Oberly 's remark
about Dowdall, several years ago; again,
there have been rumors that Oberly .was to
find a field for his journalistic genius among
the "moss-backs" of Quincy and Adams
county, and still later we are
informed that the discouraged and
down trodden democracy of McLean county
were firmly impressed that the penacea for
all their woes would be discovered if he
could be placed at the head of a bourbon
organ at Bloomington. While it is evident
that what the democracy ot Illinois want
in order to givo them success is more popu
lar ignorance instead of more intelligence,
it is .difficult to see how their condition is
to be helped by multiplying their news
papers. However this may be, we predict
that Mr. Oberly's career as a newspaper
editor, wherever his lot may be cast, will
be much more brilliant than that he has just
closed as a democratic candidate for secre
tary of state."
A Word to Our Readers.
When you read of a remedy that will
cure all diseases, beware of it; but when
you read of a pure vegetable compound
which claims to euro only certain parts of a
body, and furnishes high proof that it docs
this, you can safely try it and with tho as
surance that it will help you. This is just
what Warner's Safe Kidney and Liver Curo
does. It cures all troubles of the lower
portion of the body and none others. It
will not help tho toothache, caracha nor
consumption, but it will put your body in a
vigorous and healthy state where )ou can
enjoy lifo and appreciate its good things.

Striking; Coal Miners.
Sprinoield, III., Nov. 30. This evening
more miners came out of the coal shafts
and are on a strike, so that out of the eight
or ten mines in the vicinity, only one or
two ot tho number have a working force.
These men were being paid three cents per
bushel for mining, which rule has been
maintained by the operators all through
the past dull season. The miners at
these rates were making splen
did wages, aud their action does not meet
with much sympathy in this community.
The operators whose mines have been left
by the striking workmen deem this action
of their employes as unjustifiable, and have
notified all strikers that they will not be
employed at any price in tho future, and
propose to fill their mines with negroes
and whoever will work Irom abroad at three
cents per bushel. All strikers havo been
notified to remove their kits' from the pits
Libel Suits Instituted bv the Proprietors
New York, Nov. 30. Tho editors and
publishers of Truth havo begun a suit for
libel against the proprietor of the
Times, damages being demanded
in the sum of 30,000. The particu
lar offence upon which the suit is based
is an editorial in the Times printed just
after the O'Brien confession, in which the
writer charges tho Truth propiietors with
being guilty not only of forgery but of
subornation of porjury. Other suits havo
been begun against "Gath," Gcorgo Albert
Townsend, New York correspondent of the
Cincinnati Enquirer, who indulged in a like
strain, and against three others.
The Story of Wreck.
Owen Sound," Nov. 30. Tho steamer
Manotlin, arrived to-night from Manitoulin
island, brought J. G. Peasons first matu;
John Ncsbit, first engineer ; Robert Mc
Enecney, wheel-man; Mat. Nobles, fireman,
P. Croft, deck-hand of tho steamer Simcoo
which foundered on tho 24th inst.
The Simcoo left Chicago on tho 18th
with a cargo of 19,000 bushels of corn and
general freight. Sho experienced contin
ued and severe gales on Lake Michigan, ac
companied with heavy snow storms, which
sho weathered. Early on the morning
of tho 24th, whilst off Providence bay,
on tho south side of Manitoulin island,
the sea was so heavy it broke through
the engine room putting out the fires. The
ship became completely unmanageable and
remained in a trough of the sea, taking in
water until noon, when sho sank. As sho
filled her upper works were forced away,
carrying the life-boat with it. The five
named succeeded in releasing ono of the
boats from tho wreck and got into it. They
thin tried to rcscuo tho others who
were clinging to tho upper works,
but wero unablo to reach them, When tho
hull went down tho remainder of tho crew
were standing forward by tho bow and
niado no apparent effort to savo them.
After witnessing tho wreck, tho lifeboat

which placo they went by team to Mani

Lire Elephants. '"
There are now on exhibition in New
York two peculiar elephants brought
from the mountains of the Malay Pen
insula, nlxut 800 miles from Singapore.
They ant remarknble for their small
size," being respectively twenty-eight
and thirty-six inches tall; and for being
covered with a thick coat of bristly
hair or wool. They are .supposed to be
from 5 to 7 years old. In size they re
semble the extinct elephants of Malla,
and in covering those of Siberia. Their
woolly coat is attributed to the circum
stance that they live high upon the
mountains where the climate is cold.
Tho species appear to be all but un
known to nalurali.sl.s, this pair being
the first that have survived the passage
through the healed low country to the
coast and the subsequent journey by
sea. Tho sailors on the steamer which
brought them the Oxfordshire, Cap
tain C. P. Jones named them Prince
and Sidney. They are described as
playful and harmless, and they keep
their little trunks stretched out to
strangers to be petted. They loved to
bo scratched on tho under side of the
trunk close to the mouth, and they hold
their trunks curled back over their
heads as long as anyone scratches them.
Like elephants of large growth, they
keep up a swaying motion, cither side
ways or forward and backward. ' When
a visitor lets one of the little fellows
take his hand he delicately curls his
!roboscis around it and carries it gent

The process of making hollow rubber
balls used by children as playthings is
quite curious, and may be interesting
to those not familiar with it. A Ilol
yoke writer thus describes it:
These balls havo a solid surface, are
made by a different process from that
of making the soft rubber balls which
are perforated by an opening, and, of
course, are much more tirm, durable
anil elastic. The sheets of rubber pre
pared for balls are cut Into strips of
double convex shape. The edges of
tho strips are moistened with a prepar
ation of rubber and naphtha, by which,
they uro joined firmly together, three
of the strips being used for one ball.
This part of the work is done by
girls, and a skillful girl can earn about
1.50 per day. When the strips are
joined together, the ball is very near
the shape of u Brazil nut. Beforo tho
last opening is closed a small quantity
of carbonate of ammonia is put inside,
which, when subjected to strong heat,
will make the rubber expand and fill
out the ball mold. The opening is then,
closed with the adhesive mixture, and
it is placed In an iron mold of the size
and shape of the ball desired. The
molds are packed into frames, in which
they are subjected to the heat of a vul
ennizcr. They are kept in place in tho frame
by iron rods along tho side, and when
tho frame is full, iron plates at tho end
are screwed down tightly upon the
molds to hold them in place. These
iron plates are about three-fourths of
an inch thick, and so strong is tho ex
pansive force of tho rubber in the molds
that they bend this thick iron rod into
a curve. If ono of tho molds should,
work out of place while vulcanizing in1
In process, the molds would fly out with
a noise like the report of a dozen pis
tols, and the work is spoiled. The
action of the heut does the rest. Whoa
the molds are opened they contain the
perfect rouud halls, with no mark of
tho places where tho pieces were
placed. The slight ridge made by tho
mold is ground off by a stono used for
that purpose, and the ball is done.
Trobably the largest rock in the known
world Is the south dome of tho Yosemite.
Standing at tho fork of tho upper valley,
it rears itself, a solid, rocky loaf, 60O
feet above the ground. A more power
ful hand than that of a Titan has cut
away the eastern half, leaving a sheer
precipice over a mile in height No
man ever trod tho top of this domo ua
til last year. Former visitors gazed ia
wonder at the spikes driven into the
rock by hardy spirits who had repeated
ly endeavored to scale it The shreads '
of rope dangling in tho wind told the
story of their failure. Last year, how
ever, after thousands of dollars had been
expended, several persons found their
way to the top of the dome, and this
tminmcr two sheep were found browsing
on thi) hitherto Inaccessible peik. .
