lJiO: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 inlluence 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
ization to January 1st,
closed its books upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim."
The Equitable Life Assurance Society was the first to in

And thereby to popularize life
Py 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
l alkies than any of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income last year
than any other company.
THIRD The Equitable's death rate was less last year than
any other of the leading companies.
FOURTH The Equitable real ize. a higher rate of rent, or

Wahuisoton, Jud. 18. The house com
merce committee did not consider the
Mississippi river lo-day, but wot'ked on
the Washington river front. Tliero in a
disposition among tlio members of the
committee to givo the commission tlio
$1,800,000 und put off tlio reach between
St. Louis and Cairo with $500,000, leaving
the reservoir system with nothing. This
will be hardly tought in the house by those
interested in all three appropriations and
there will probably be a minority report by
Vinegar and WhinKey.
The hearing was completed to day before
tho ways ' and means committee of the
house upon tho Carlisle bill "to regulate the
manufacture of the vinegar by the alcoholic
evaponzdtion process." Commissioner
Raum gave the views of the internal revenue
department upon the bill, and Messrs.
Rush and Parnell of Chicago, Gushing of
Dubuque, Uechtner of Milwaukee and
Stugg of St. Louis represented ihc manu
facturers. 'With some slight modifications
it is probable the bill will bo favorably re
ported to the house.
The house committee on post-offices and
post-roads will hold a ppecial meeting to
morrow for the consideration of resolutions
relative to government telegraph lines
which were introduced into the house Mon
day and referred to them.
Tic majority report present in the house
to-day by Representative Sparks from the
committee on military nlfairs upon tho bill
"to place Gen. Grant upon the retired list
with the rank and pay of general," simply
state that "the committee having fully
considered said bill, begged leave to report
the snmo buck to the house with recom
mendation that it do not pass." Gen.
McCook submitted the views of the minori
ty in a lenghty report, reviewing the public
services of Gen. Grant and expressing the
opinion that there is an overwhelming
public sentiment in favor of some measure
ot the kind suggested by the president, and
they believe that the majority ot the
people, with out regard to party affiliation,
will indorse and approve it.
Sufferers from Snow Slides.
Salt Lakk, Jan. 18. Everybody lias
come down from Alta but sixteen persons.
Last night a company was organized here
to go to Alta and recover the dead bodies.
A committee was appointed to take up a
subscription tor the relief of tho refugees.
Tho storm has cleared away, but it
will be impossible to repair dam

sheds before spring. A slide in American
fork buried tho Pittsburg mine boarding
house with two men in it, one of whom was
dugout a ivc by a Chinaman.
Last night the flouring mill, near this
city, burned. Loss on mill $15,000; grain,
f.1,000; insured for $7,000 in tour compa
nies. Wretched. Indeed,
Are those whom a confirmed tendency to
biliousness, subjects to tho various and
changeful symptoms indicative of liver com
plaint. Nausea,sick headache, constipation,
furred tongue, an unpleasant breath, a dull
or sharp pain in the neighborhood of the
affected organ, impurity of tlio blood and
loss oi appetite signalize it as one ot
tho most distressing, ns it is
most common of maladies, There is, how
ever, a lienifrn snecilip. for tlio dinnnson nml
all its unpleasant manifestations. It is the
concurrent testimony of the public and tho
medical proprofession, that Ifostetter's
rMoinaen jsnrers is a medicine winch
achieves results speedily felt, thorough and
benign. Resides rectifying livur disorder,
it illviL'Olutes the fepliln. rnnnupra L-i.lm.v

convalescence ot those recovering from en

Orpha M. Undue, of Buttle Creek, Mic h.,
writes, May 10, 1S73 : "I upset a teakettle
of boiling hot water on my hand, inflicting
a very severe scald. I applied Dr. Thomas'
Eclectric Oil, and take great pleasure in
announcing to you that tho effect was to
allay pain and prevent blistering. I was
cured in three days. Wo prizo it very
highly as a fumily medicine." Paul G.

Tho Countess of Antrim has effect
ed a diversion. The cards for her last
afternoon "At Homo" in Lowndes
Square were marked, "Dipping at 4-.:j0

this created considerable excitement.
What could beabout to happen? Was
tho Counters bent on u bathing party?
Was it sonm American surprise?
What could it be? It was simply

Every Season a Favorite.
If we were any of us positively re
quired toslnto which one of the sea
sons of the year wo would willingly
do without," it would bo hard to come
to a decision. Ritchter, tho German
poet and romancer, pretty nearly hits
oil the case for each one of us, begin
ning with saying that Autumn is bis
favorite season, and that even in tho
Soring he looks forward to it with
pleasure : for in tho Autumn he walks
around in the garden on beautiful days
and anticipates in imagination tho
glorious Spring lime. But Spring is
his favorite season because then ho has
a presentiment of the full glow of
Stimmeraud tho long days. Tlio Sum
mer again has great charms, on ac
count of tho approach of Autumn,
which cools ono after tho torment
ing beats, and affords longer and calm
er enjoyment; nnd pleasant, beeauso
then coines the preparation for Win
ter. Winter, again, is pleasant and
invigorating, antl prophetic ot Spring,
even asoarlyas right after New Year's.
On the whole, he could not tell which
season of the year ho would be willing
to give up; but it certainly would
never be the coming one. '
Sheep and Cows.
A correspondent of tho Ohio Farmer
says that he has found by experience
that six Cotswold sheep will not con
sume more food than a cow, and are
more profitable, for a lamb of this
breed, weighing l-'.j pounds, $j.5() is
obtained. He estimates that owes will
produce, eight lambs per annum and
fifty pounds of wool, now worth thirty-seven
cents per pound. Tho expe
rience of the correspondent is no doubt
correct, but in other localities it might
Cows L'nder the Weather.
Cows are very sensitive as to the in
fluence of tho weather. In bright,
clear days their vital forces are. moro
active and vigorous, digestion is more
rapid, and assimilation and waste are
moro active, and secretions which, like
lmtter, depend upon tho destruction
of tissue, are more abundant. Lassi
tude is favorable to transudation, be
cause it relaxes the delicate membranes
and makes tho passages of liquids easi
er, and consequently more abundant.
Thus, while the fats in milk diminish,
the albuminoids increase in muggy
.weather; and yet a given weight of
milk makes less cheese than in fair
weather. This loss in cheese is owing
to the fact that as the albumen of tho
blood passes over into the milk vessels,
tho major part of it is converted into
caseinc, which is coagulable by ronnet,
while albumen is not. This change
from albumen to caseiuo is effected by
tho vital forces, nnd is moro or less
complete as they vary in strength.
The greater energy of bright days in
creases the per cent of caseiuo, and
makes that of albumen less. In mug
gy weather this is reversed. Theso
changes often amount to enough to
make tivo per cent difference in tho
yield of cheese in favor of good weath
er, while tho total of albuminoids, ns
shown by analysis, is the greater in
the muggy days. From the decrease
in fat and the increase of albuminoids,
which are heavier than fat, tho 'milk
of the muggy days shows tho greater
specllic gravity, and yields a less per
cent of butter. 1'ruf. L. Ii. Arnold
in JV. i . Tribune.
Previous to 1783 there were very
few mules in this country, and thoso
of such an inferior order tis to preju
dice farmers against them as until to
compete with horses in work upon tho
road or farm. Consequently there
were no jacks, and no disposition to
increase the stock. Rut W ashington
became convinced that the introduc
tion of mules generally among South
ern planters would prove to them a
great blessing as they were less liable
to disease, longer lived worked upon
shorter feud, and are much less liable
to bo injured than horses by care
less servants. As soon as it becamo
known abroad that tho illustrious
Washington wanted to slock his Mount
Vernon estate with mules, tho King of
Spain sent him a jack and two jennets
from tho island of Malta. Tho first
was of gray color, sixteen hands high,
heavily miido, and of sluggish nature.
Ho was named tho Royal Gift. Tho
other was culled tho Knight of Malta,
lie was about its high, and litho and
fiery oven to fcrocit y. Tho two sets of
animals gavo him tho most favorablo
opportunity of making improvements
by cross breeding, tho result of which
was tho favorito jack Compound, bo
causo ho partook of tho best points in
both originals. Tho General bred his
blooded marcs to theso jacks, even tak
ing thoso from his own stables for that
purpose, and produced such supiirb 1
mules that tho country was agog to
breed soiuo ot the sort, ami they soon
becamo quite common. This was tho
origin of improved mules iu tho Unit
ed Suites. Though over eighty years
ago, thoro are now soiuo of tho third
ami fourth generation of tho Knight ,
of Malta and Royal Gift to bo round in
Virginia, ami tho great bcuollta aris
ing from Iholr introduction to tha
country are to be seen upon every cul
tivalod acre in the Southern Slates.
