THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of tlic United States.
The J'opulfiiity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nual New Ru.m'ucvs 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, audits
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
Asa (iUARANTEE of this, aud 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
izatioii to January 1st. lllltO, S51.fMi2.73G, and
closed its books upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim.''
The'Equitable Life Assurance Society was the firt to in
TOXTIXE SAVINGS FUND POLICY.
And thereby to popularize life insurace to a degree before
Ry 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
1 ilities than any of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income lastj'ear
than any other company.
THIRD The Equitable's death rate was loss 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.
TheSociety takes pletxsnre in referrinffto the following well known business

While valcea of gladnoia, with w.rd of cheer,
Were gaily hailing the bright New Vear;
Hho alept In her coffin' cloao embrace,
Aud tvara rained down on hor beautiful face;
A etrunucr I atood In the ahadow'd room,
Where death had apread h' mantle of (loom;
And I look'd with a thrill of awe, untold,
On the lovely face, ao whltu aud cold .
Through a midst of tear, I look'd on tho face,
So peaceful and awoet in lt renting place;
Forever free from all orrjw and fear,
While voicej wero hailing the birth of the year.
I naw the roKe buda and folda of lace.
Lying no near tho beautiful fare
And tho abitilng wave of the oft rich hulr.
Brushed from the marhlo brow ao liiir.
Oh! Why, on a day ao fair a thin.
Wero her dear llpi cold to love' w irm Idas?
With tho flrat bright ray of tho New Year's cun,
Her life In a fairer land had bet-uu.
Aa I heard the pleadinga and pitiful erica,
While tear-drop rained from love' and eye!,
I longed to atand in their mldxt aud ear
"Your darling la happy thla New Year' day."
Thla beautiful casket la frailest clay,
The angels have carried the Jewel away
Her life bcjlna with the glad New Year,
In a laud that kuowe'h not aorrow'e tear.
Where never la beard the tollluu bell,
That saddest of aoundH tho old year's kuell
Where the rolling aeasona may never bring,
To tht aweet tuned harp, a broken stilng.
Tho circle 1 broken, and one by ono,
Shall your handa be folded, your work be done;
Y'oa will meet ber again, aome golden day,
When a few more aeasou shall creep away.
For her grave, yon have turned thewlntcr' anow,
But many a summer' golden glow,
Wl'.h broldered mantle the mound shall apread,
Where thy darling sleeps In her dreamless bed.

WIT AND HUMOR.
It Is a poor speller who does not kep
an i to business.
The man who missed his footing prob
ably bad his boots stolen.
Mrs. Lnngtiy is so beautiful that she
is more than head ami shoulders above
any adornments of dress.
It's probably true that tho church U
tho puwrost plaeo on earth, since so
many of tho congregation sleep.
Tho cultured way to speak of a bur
lesque actress' dress is to say that the
skirts are very decolleto at the bottom.
Kvcry maiden can have a feller if sh
has money to buy a sewing-machina
with all tho modern attachments.
Old lady (to modest Curate "Lor',
sir, I do li'ko to 'ear you preach, extrum
pery! Your language is that won'erful
"There is no placo like home," re
peated Mr. Henpeek, looking at a mot

Tho ancient maiden who defers hor
proposition of marriago much longer
will soon have Mr. chances for this leap
Women don't take to telegraphy very
much. Lots of dispatches have to be
taken on manifold, and tho sex don't
care for man if old.
The woman who trims her own bon
net can always be picked out ot a crowd
by other women; now if men only had
this peculiar gift of selection.
A dull old laily, being told that a cer
tain lawyer was lying at the point of
death, exclaimed: "My gracious! won't
even death stop that man's lying?"
Time, 2 a. m.: "My dear." said he.
" 's all right. I've been down getting

At Bullong Mr. Belleville (who likes
to air his French before his friends.)

A child of 5 was being taken to a
party in a close carriage, and whilei
passing through a plantation lie sud
denly vxelaimed with great satisfaction:
"Look! look! I'm going out to tea; but
all the trees are going home!"
Speaking -of Mr. Forbes' lecture on
"Kings I llavo Met," a Western news
paper says that some day he will como
across three kings and a pair of sevens,
and then he will learn something about
the really great resources of this coun
try. King Ludwig, of Bavaria, who in
council, sits, and makes bis ministers
stand, often wakes his old chamberlain
at 3 o'clock in tho morning to play bil
liards, ami if ho dares to yawn ho is
soon made to feel the weight of the roy
Tho other day a mild little man, with
an invalid wife and seven children, wou
jt big black bear nt a radio in Memphis.
The bear was rallied off because it ate
up its last owner, and the little man
who made tho lucky throw is just wild
to know what to do.
Dr. G. is one of tho most fervent
apostles of materialism. In recalling;
certain souvenirs of his youth, ho be
gan an anecdote, in the most natural
tono in the world "At the, timo I was
in love with an agglomeration of mole
cules called Ernestine."
A woman who went to a concert to
hear a performer called Blind Tom
"play by ear," says sho was swindled,
aud wants the fraud exposed. Sho says
that, instead of playinjy by ear, ho
played with his lingers, just like other
I ho Newark Advertiser writer re
garding this old favorite and popular
actress: Maggie Mitchell having com
menced her professional career in this
city, her course has been a matter of
more than ordinary interests here. Sho
has been on tho stage for thirty years.
She acknowledges to 4U, and as sho has
made a great deal of money, people
wonder why she docs not retire. Th
truth is, that sho is not as rich as slui
was, and her work now is for her child
ren. Some years ago her husband.
Paddock, bought the Forest placo at
Long Branch, paying -75,000 therefore,
10,000 of which wtw cash down. 'Finn
ran on and interests and taxes with it,
but the little commediciine is in no
sense u business woman, and so she
left everything to her husband. One
day the remaining !?;V,000 fell duo and
could not be met. Tho placo was sold
ou mortgage and brought less then tho
tirst payment, and sho awoko to a re
alization of the fact that sho had a hard
time before her, nnd the littie woman
is still on tho stage.
Maggie Mitchell, since her first treat
success in New York nineteen years
ago, mis neen a earryaii lor ner entire
family. She feeds them, lodges them,
ami clothes them. Sho has an old fath
er between 70 and 80, who is a Tcrit-
able. "Old Eccles." In snlto of tho
fnmiliarity with her plays and acting.
Maggie Mitchell is still one of the great
playing stars of the stage. Sho makes
mouev constantly and everywhere, and
sho deserves to. Sho has created a
school in acting, and her school ia bo
yond imitation. Few women havogivon
as gvert pleasure to the public.
Miss Eva Sothern.tho beautiful daugh-
ter of E. A. Sothern (Lord Dundreary),
is about to appear, or has by this tinm
appeared, in conjuction with Mr. Bouei
cault, at the Olympic, London, in "An

dramatizations of the "Gamin do Paris." '
revamped as far hack as 1803 for hi
wife, Agnes Robertson. Mr Sotliem
