The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nual New Business 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 (JUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the tierni
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.

How Murk Twain was Swindled.
Mr. ltcdimtli tells tlto following sto
ry of Murk Twain ;
I think it was Mark's second year of
let: tu rill"; in tho East. Ho tokl me one
day that ho was going to get married,
anil ho wanted nie to go with him to
buy what you would havo called a
"i roiiMsoau" if you had been a woman.
Ilo bought enough (or a century or
two ; bo comes from a long-lived race,
ami ho had an cyo to tho future, i lo
was not worth more than i82U,(M)0 or
f 25,000 at tho timo, I guess. Ho has
niado since over $100,000 by his book
and lectures and interests in insurance
companies at Hartford, where he lives.
He went and got married at Elmira,
whero his father-in-law lived. Tho
latter was ft millionaire, 0110 of tho
coal-mining lords. Mark had asked
his friends in tho editorial oflico to se
locta first-class suite of rooms in a
fashionablo boauding-houso, uud to
have a carriage ready to take his brido
and himself there when they came to
I$uHalo. Ho knew they would do ft,
and gavo himself no more anxiety
about it. When ho reached liull'alo
he found tho boys, sure enough, at tho
depot with the finest carriage and
span of horses bo had ever seen in that
city. They drove hint up to a hand
some house in an aristocratic street,
and us tho door was opened, there
were tho parents of the brido to wel
come him home. As tho story was
told mo I didn't get it from Mark
the bride's folks had come up, without
his knowledge, by a special train.
Mark went from room to room, and
found every room furnished exquisite
ly some in blue and some in yellow
silks the furniture and upholstery of
the most luxurious and expensive
styles. Then he was informed "ollic
ially" that he had been driven up by
his own coachman in his own carriago
to his own house. They say tears
came to Mark's eyes, ul though his
wonderful bright eyes the keenest
and clearest and most" penetrating eyes
1 ever saw in any man's head aren't
given to weeping asa regular business,
lie could not find words to "express
his sentiments,'' so he only "rose to
explain." "Well, this is a "first-class
swindle!" be stammered.
Ilonsilatc Is a new material which is
attracting considerable attention. It
can bo made into umbrella handles,
canes, checkers and dominoes, clock
ca?es and other things which hereto
fore have been manufactured from
ivory, bard rubber and similar sub
stances. It is said to be banter than
celluloid, and, as in tho case of the lat
ter material, if coloring matter be
properly mixed with it, can be made
to imitate malachite, expensive mar
bles, etc. It can be readily molded in
dies, and be formed into slabs or bars.
It may be turned, polished, or sawed
into any shape desired.
Twenty years ago, -when Sardoti
was very poor, be promised, in return
for a small advance of cash, to write a
comedy lor the Palais Itoyal Theater.
He postponed and postponed. Threat
ened now with an action, ho has com
plied, which explains why that petty
theater will bring out a masterpiece.
Poor Dumas perc was not liko Sardou ;
what he promised was punctually per
formed. Dumas came to Paris with
40 francs in his pocket.. IIo earned
and squandered 10,000,000 francs.
When going to bed to dio ho found a
20-frauce piece in his pocket. "Look,"
said he, showing it to his son proudly
"what 1 possess on quitting tho
world, and peoplo accuse nic of ex
travagance." When Dumas ills invit
ed 15a rem Taylor to attend his father's
funeral in the country, he assured tho
liarou, "You can catch a return train
in time for dinner."
Kkai.ly St. Jacobs Oil is a wonderful
remedy, writes Mr. Win. Reinhurt, Elmore,
Wis., for I could mention dozens of casts
where it has proved its magical influence.
One case in particular Twill statu: I
know a man who sulfercd with Rheuma
tism for the last twenty-four years, and of
late ho could hardly move around. Alter
using a few bottles of St. Jacobs Oil he
was entirely cured.

Not a Musical Critic.
A young lady, moving in tho most
exalted social circles of Galveston, af
ter much toil and practice at tho pi
ano, learned to play with considera
ble dexterity a piece entitled "Picnic
Polka." It is something after the
style of the celebrated "Rattle of
Prague." Tho listener can readily
distinguish the roar of the artillery,
the rattle of the musketry, tho shout
ot the soldiers and the groans of tho
dying. In tho "Picnic Polka" thu
noise of tho winding among tho trees,
the joyous carols of the birds are re
produced, the finale being a thunder
shower, which disturbs tho sylvan
revelers. It happens that a country
cousin is in town just now, and tho
young lady thought sho would play
the piece lo him ami hear his com
ment. He is a plain, simple-minded
youth, and although not very bright
is very appreciative. She told him
what the piece was, and then proceed
ed to give Dim the "Picnic Polka."
The first notes are rather slow and
hesitating, the idea sought to be con
veyed being the solemn solitude ot
the forest, through which the gentlo
zephyr (not heifer) sighs. After she
got through with tho preface she ask
ed him if ho did not imagine himself
in a lodge in some vast wilderness.
He replied that he thought all that
slowness meant the delay In getting oil'.
Said he : "There is always some nam
ed cu-s who oversleeps himself and
keeps everybody else waitiu'."
Sue did not euro to discuss the point
with the ignorant beast, so, to conceal
her emotion, she once more let
herself out on tho piano. The woods
were tilled with music. Tim mocking-bird
whistled us if his throat
w ould split, tho cuckoo filled thu syl
van bowers with his repeated cry,
while ever and anon thu mournful
coo'iii; of the dove interrupted the
matin song of the lark.
"There, now, 1 "iiess you know
what that sounds like," she said.
"You mean that 'tootle, tootle, too
tle, chug, chug, chug?' Y'ou just bet
I understand mat. Many is tne time
at a picnic I've heard it from the
mouth of a demijohn or the bungholo
of a beer keg."
Her lirst impulse was to hurl tho
piaiio stool at him, but it passed oil,
and once more sho went at the piano
us if it were the young man's head,
ami insured for double the value.
The thunder growled, the lightning
Hashed (from her eyes) and tne lirst
heavy drops are heard upon tho leaves.
She banged and mangled the keys at a
fearful rate ; peal alter peal of deafen
ing thunder perturbed the atmosphere
and re-cchoeil in still louder rever
berations, uiit.il it wound up in ono
appalling clap as a great finale. Then,
turning to the awe-struck youth, shu
said: "I suppose you have heard
something like that before."
"Yes, that's what the fellow with
the linen pants said when hesatdowu
on the custard pie."
Tho audience found himself alone,
but ho picked up his hat and saunter
ed out into the street, densely uucoii
sclous that he hail said anything out
of the way. Galvtxtoii Sewn,
