Assurance Society of
1''0 BROADWAY 3STEAV YORK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleyen years its average an
nual New Rim'hos has. been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a trreat 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 (il'ARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious intlui-nce of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new, throughout the United States.

FIRST Tlie Equitable has a larger ratio of assets to lia

SECONP 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 leadin.iX companies.

A CHICAGO LETTER.
Cnicuio, III., Jan. 3,
l)i:.vn Dfi.i.KTiN : While yet my tothcr
lieel rests U)on the sill of tlie exit door of
1SS0 lingennly, lest I lift it anil pass the
portals of l I, with duties unperformed,
or w't'h wrongs unatoned, I bethink me
that my promise to write you, as time
served or as occurrences might suggest, has
not been very religiously fulfilled. I may
not cover all my delinquenccs, in that re
quest, by this one single epistle, yet the ef-
Utformy promi., ma t

doice of thirtv-two years anion'' your
people prolific of friendship and
tnnspiriugs that are still sub
ject to periodical resurrection.
When, on the eve of my departure from
Cairo, I wrung the honest hinds of my
friends, 1 was r.jsured that, within six
months, I vould accomplish the round trip
from Cairo to Chicago and retain. Nearly
mne months L'ive passed since then, yet
I'm in and of Chicago still.
Of Chicago jMpi r I'm tnamered. It is,
iu every cssen'.iil particular, the city ot the
American continent. The great sights, and
sounds and see ires of the world arc subject
t ) enjoyment here, at will. The city is dis
tinguished by rill the concomitants of the
highest civilization furnishing to the "un-
ilercniat or nuM-sui element, a
day's round of oyster lunches
and "model artistes"' exhibitions for
13 cents, or to the aristocracy, a $50.00
box seat annng the half-crazed admirers
of tin; divine Sara ot "infinite promiscuity."
No where e!.-e on earth can 13 cents com
mand such feasts and frolics; no where the
on earth can f VLOO be expended so wildly,
so reekle.-sly and foolishly as here in Chica
go. I speak, mw, mind you, of the city;
but iu the suiiurbi I see much that reminds
me i f the earlier day s of Cairo.
Many years ago a stranger was brought
b fore Squire Shanucssy on a charge ol
drunkenness. The stranger not only pro
tected his innocence, but proved it showed
by competent testimony that he was a con
sistent member of the M. E. church south
and nbhonvd, above ull things, the immod
erate use of intoxicating liquors. "Well,"
remarked the sipiire, as he elevated his
spectacles to the routs of his hair, "well my
friend, I coufess that you have Known your
innocence. You have not only shown the
charce to bo unfounded but that you never
drink yourself, nor countenance it in others.
That you have showu all this is not to be
denied; but still, my dear sir, I have a iuty
to pertorm, and must not shrink from it.
As a conservator of the pence, and us an
officer charged with tho execution of the
law, I feel it my duty to fine you live dol
lars as a warning."
Justice ot a kindred kind is yet admin
istered iu tho suburbs of Chicago.
A poor devil from Quincy
failing to secure employment and being
moneyless", sought shelter for the night in
a box car. Next morning he was brought
into tlie police court. "Vouf peen schleep.

When I tell you that I do mit tax imag
ination for a single fact involved in this
little story, you will agree with mi that,
notwithstanding the overshadowing great
ness of tho city, its magnificent churches,
eleguut and spacious school houses, public
libraries and reading rooms the society of
some of the suburbs remains crude und ua
unsettled, primitive and peculiar.
The business men of the Union Stock
Yards seem especially adopted for their
several pursuits. They are generous and
warm-hearted; but entertain an aversion
for "tile." The stranger is not compell
ed to await the forms of an introduction to
make acquaintances. II can make him
self known without employing any such
The thirty-six square miles embraced
within the limits of tlie Town ot Like (in
which the Stock Yards are located; contain
a population of 19,000 souls. The live stock
business, that involved the expenditure of
1143,000,000 last year, is of corse, the lead
ingindustry,and bringing together 0.000 to
8,000 laborers, the demand fur liquid stimu
lants supports exactly 123 saloons, that en
joy a daily patronage aggregating f 1mi0
to f 3,000. Another consequence, or out
growth of such a condition.
is a collection of houses and a
community of people, some ten miles away,
known as Bridgeport. Here are certain
rendering and fertilizing establishments
that spread obnoxions, revolting stinks for
miles in every direction. And as Prentice
once said of Natchez, so wiT now ..ay of
Bridgeport : "It would be a most eligible
location tor bell, because the devil would
have no occasion to remove its inhabitants."
While it is not to be
denied that there are worthy
people there, it i3 true, nevertheless, that
the moral status of the peace is iu entire
harmony with the sickening effluvia that
always envelopes it, but enough of tins.
The assurances the Bl'i.i.kti.n gives of
Cain's substantial progress is certainly veiy
gratify ing to all friends ofthe plate, wheth
er among you or abroad. Your Union de
put, your elevator, the close connection
with the M.&O. n. K., "The Ilaliulay,"
and last, but by no means least, your street
railway system, must all serve as promoters
of Cairo's growth. The growing demand
tor and stiffened prices of improve' and un
improved real estate form a resultant that
inspires increased confidence iu the city's
future, giyi.'S new vigor to the belief
that business will enforce the upbuilding a
great city at the mouth of the Ohio that
the prosperity of the place trom this time
forth will not be strained or of an evanes
cvnt kind, but solid, substantial and
healthy. M. B. II.
Disorders which Affect the Kidneys
Are among the most formidable known.
Diabetes, Bright' disease, gravel and other
complaints of the urinary organs are not or
dinanh cured iu severe cases, but thev inav
be averted liv timely medication. A use
ful stimulant ot the urinary glands lias ever
been found in Ilostetter's Stomach Bitters,
a medicine which not only affords the re
quisite stimulus when they become inactive,
out increases their vigor ami secretive pow

neys and bladder, this medicine has the
additional effect of expelling from th
blood impurities which it is the 'peculiar
office of those organs to eliminate and pass

Marriage in Albania.
Albanian marriage arrangements arc
very peculiar. When a damsel arrives
nt marriageable age, her parents pul
lish the fact among their friends and
acquaintances. Miould no suitor come
forward, it rests witli her brothers to
lind one. A brother thus circumstanc
ed will sometimes conic up to a nialo
friend in the street and make the com
plimentary proposal then and there.
"You ure just the man I wanted to see"
thus goes the abrupt formula on these
occasions "my sister is now fourteen
years old: you mti-t marry her." As
etiquette forbids a plump refusal, tho
peiitleman thus honored gives a sort of
nalf-acquicscence, and then hurries off
to instruct some old lady to act as go
between. Should ho bo satisfied with
tho report made, after duo inquiry, la
this advisor, the wedding is arranged;
but not until the very last moment is
the expectant bridegroom allowed to seo
his future spouse, and then it would bo
contrary to the prescriptions of soeiety
for him to draw back, however iinpre
possessing shoiight prove to bo. Af
ter the performance of tho ceremony, a
very curious piece of etiquette comes
into play. Among tho Asiatics and un
civilized jieople generally, it is tho rulo
of the bndo-eleet to feign coyness; but
among Arnnuts the bridegroom has to
make this pretence. After the marriage)
feast Is over, and tho newly-niado wife
has withdrawn, her husband lingers be

her relatives are tho prescriptions of
etiquette considered to bo sufficiently
complied with to admit of his follow
