10 BROADWAY N13W YOEK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleyen 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

Some Ways of Cooking Eggx.
A meal of cjrgs, which are cheap,
(iiickly cooked nnd noiirihhiiifr, and
which every limner has, or ought to
have, on his premises, will often savo
Iho housekeeper a great deal of heat
and worry, and hens satistaclory to
all concerned, as a more elaborate meat
dinner. And first, as to boiling eggs,
it is a little- Miigular, but it is true,
that most jieojile don't know how to
perform this simple piece of cookery.

them at all, but just cover them with
boiling water, and let them stand for
ten minutes where they will keep hot,
but not boil.
A very palatable dish may be made
of eggs and asparagus, thus: cut ten
der asparagus into pieces half au inch
long, and boil twenty minutes ; then
drain till dry, and put into a saucepan
containing acupful of rich drawn but
ter; beat together to a boil, season
with pepper and wilt, and pour into a
buttered dish ; break half a dozen eggs
over the surface; put a bit of butter
upon each; spriuklo with salt ami
pepper, ami put into the oven until
the eggs are set.
Another easily prepared and really
delicious dish is made thus: provide
as many rather deep saucers, as you
have persons to bo served. Warm and
butter them, and sprinkle in each some
finely ( hopped ham or parsley, then
break into it two eggs, being careful
not to break tho yolks, sprinkle light
ly with salt aud pepper, and drop on
llieui one-half a teaspoonful of butter
broken into very small pieces; place
into a moderately hot ovcu until the
white is set, which will he in about

well-bealen yolks and cornstarch ; stir
all together very thoroughly, then add
tho milk ; now put the butter in the
hot pan, and when melted pour iu the
mixture; cover and place on the stove
where it will brown but not burn;
cook about seven minutes; fold, turn
on a hot dish, and serve with cream

Homes of tho I'oor.
Passing into First avenue, Now
Xork, we find that nearly every build
ing is a tenement house, and a largo
majority of them arc six stories high.
Every building has its row of stores
facing on the street, and then its three
four, live layers ot families families
because they consist of parents and
children, but not families in tho scuso
that we tiro used to, where both par
ents and all the children strive to
make homo happy. Each floor is di
vided in i o many suites of rooms, each
suite occupied by from two to six or
more persons. The door of ono of
these tenement houses stands invit
ingly open if anything in this cheer
less neighborhood can bo said to bo
inviting. No ono will havo any ob
jections to our going up, for nothing
is very private hereabout. Tho peo
plo we are going to seo aro as likely to
be honest as wo arc, and they work
and earn Choir own living. They aro
independent and beg of noniau. As
for vice, they liavo little chance for it;
I hoy aro too busy struggling for life.
The head of nearly every ono of these
families hi this great building is a la
boring man. They havo broad shoul
ders, and brawny arms, and strong
muscles, and they work all day, ex
cept in a few eases where gin and the
head of the house go oil' on a picnic
together. By their hard labor, taking
u tow holidays, tlioy can barely scrapo
enough together to keep themselves
and their families alive. Tho city's
price for thoso men is $1.60 per day,
and this may bo taken as an average.
This gives thorn $9.60 a week, out of
which thoy havo to pay sixty cents
car faro. Tho family then have $9 a
week to pay their rent, keop their bi
ble, and buy their clothes. Those

The Fortune of au Editor.
That St. Jacobs Oil will cure Rheuma
tism I am coiiTineed. For two years I
suffered with Rheumatism in my left shoul
der and right hand, aud last tall I was in
capable of attending to my duties, and lay
many a night unable to sleep on account of
terriole pnins. A few weeks ago a severe
attack of this trouble struck me, and this
time I concluded to try the St. Jacobs Oil,
I must acknowledge, with but littlu con
fidence in its merits. I trecly confess that
the result has completely astonished me.
The first application relieved the pain very
materially, and the continued use of only
two bottles has completely cured me of this
chronic evil, and that after the most emi
nent physicians and their prescriptions had
been of no avail. I therefore consider it a
duty to publish the above for the benefit of
all sufferers with Rheumatism and kindred
complaints. G. A. IIeilman,

Tho Equitable seems to have established
a new practice in making its policies abso

three full premiums, as well as in the pay
