THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of the United States.
l'O BROADWAY NEW 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 vears.
"The Equitable Life lias paid since its organ
ization to January 1st, 18ft0? 51,882,736, and
closed its books upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim."

Alleged Fiction Stranger- than Roihance.
The pleasing picture of the Iowa hero
ine, who had two pickerel under harness
and was drawn by them up and down a
pond in a beautiful little boat, was tho
sweetest lish story ever clipped with an
exchange editor's shears, hut who shall
say that the ingenuity of the local
chronicler has got to tho end of its
tether and devised the sweetest possible,
fish story? Here is the Whitehall Times,
for instance, with a romance of tho
queen of the speckled beauties. A man
has an artificial trout pond with at least
three thousand fish, each weighing from
half a pound to two pounds, more or
less, lie also has a little girl, live years
old, who has succeeded in training tho
fish so that she can go to the edge of
the pond and with a handful of crumbs
feed them from her chubby hand. They
have learned to jump out of the water
and snatch worms from her fingers, and
they aro extremely fond of their littlo
mistress. One dav she lost her balance
and pitched headlong into tho water
where it was deep. She says that when
she went "away down" she" called lusti
ly for help- lfer cries quickly attract
ed her parents, and they were horrified
at seeing tho little girl floating upon
the surface of the pond. Tho father
rushed to the water's edge and reached
out for his pet, and as he raised her
from tho water a perfect solid mass of
trout was found oeneath her. Tlieso
faithful subjects of tho little queen, as
she fell, quickly gathered beneath her
and thus showed their lovo for their
mistress by bearing up her body until
aid arrived, thus preventing her from
meeting a watery grave. 'Tis a beau
tiful tale, but the next file from the Far
West may have another still lovelier.

While Prof. Graham Boll was con
ducting some new photophonic experi
ments in Paris a short time ago, using
the light from the electric arc as his
means of transmission, he found that
all the irregularities and vibrations of
the light caused a sort of murmur in

time, articulato speech was heard su
perimposed, as it were, upon the
"voice" of the arc.
A comparative analysis of the statis

laws: 1. Widowers commit suicide
more frequently than married meu. 2.
The presence and intlueueo of children
in the house diminish the inclination to
suicide in meu and women. .
There has lately been turned out at
Milan a new kind' of bread mado with
blood from raw flesh. It is said to bo a
preventive of scurvy, and to do awa
among peasants with all desire for
coholie drinks. Tho difficulty of blood
coagulatiou being overcome, tho "blood
bread" will last for years. Twenty per
cent, of its ingredients consist of blood,
its cost is only two-thirds of a cent per
loaf, and it is more nutritious than tha
ordinary loaves at ono cent each.

nating currents through the other coils
cause tho rod to bo forcod in and out
with great rapidity.
A Chance for Health
Is afforded those fast sinking into a condi
tion of hopeless debility. The means are
at hand. Iu the form of a genial medi
cinal cordial, Ilostctter's Stomach Bitters
embodies the combined qualities of a blood
fertilizer and uepurant, a tonic and an al
terative. While it promotes digestion ani
assimilation, and stimulates appetite, ha
the further effect of purifyimr tho lite cur
rent and strengthening the nervous system,
as the blood grows richer and purer by its
use, they who resort to this sterling tnedt
ciual agent, acquire not only vigor, but
bodily substance. A healthful change iu
the secretions is effected by it, and that
sure and rapid physical decay which a
chronic obstruction of the functions of the
system produce is arrested. Tho prime
causes of disease being removed, health
is speedily renovated and victor restored.
