THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of tlie United States.
BHOADWAY NEW YORK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated hy the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nual New liusine-s has heen 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 fo take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
Asa (iUAIiANTEE 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 years.
;;Tlie 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
TONTINE SAVINGS FUND POLICY,
And thereby to popularize life
Ily the late report of the Insurance Commissioner for the
states of .Massachusetts and
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 last year
than any other company.
THIKD The Equitable' death rate was less 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.

After the Correspondence.
The scnato in executive session directed
its committee on privileges and elections
to investigate by what means tho full text
of the Chineso treaties and accompanying
documents (printed in cotifldenco for the
use of all members of tho senate) became
public la.st week in twelve or fifteen news
papers throughout tho country. Tlio res
olution irdering this investigation
was presented by Edmunds, who
supported it in a speed), in tho course of
which the expressed the hope that the
senate will subject any correspondent who
refuses to disclose the source from which
he obtained the documents to imprison
ment in j.til for as long a time as lie may
continue to refuse to answer tho com
mittee's question. Tho resolution adopted
empowers the committee to semi for persons
Are those whom a confirmed tendency to
biliousness, subjects to the various and
changeful symptoms indicative of liver com
plaint. rsaiisea,sick headache, constipation,
furred tongue, an unpleasant breath, a dull
or sharp pain in the neighborhood of the
affected organ, impurity of the blood and
loss of appetite signalize it as one ot
the most distressing, as it is
most common of maladies. There is, bow
ever, a benign specific for the diseasea and
all its unpleasant manifestations. It is the
concurrent testimony of tho public, and the
medical proprofession, that llostetter's
Stomach Hitters is a medicine which
achieves results speedily felt, thorough nnd
benign. Resides rectifying liver disorder,
it invigorates the feeble, conquers kidney
nnd bladder jomplaints. and hastens the
convalescence ot those recovering from en
feebling diseases, Moreover it is the grand
specific for lever and ague.
An Artilleial Monastery.
The owner of a rich villa, a Sicilian
nobleman at llargcria, near Palermo,
has a fondness for satire, which ho
has exemplified in a novel manner.
After occupying it for some time, lio
turned it into an artificial monastery,
which you understand only after en
tering it. In tho cloisters you seo
groups of monks standing, sitting, nnd
kneeling, and you are about to retire,
believing that you have invaded their
privacy, when you discover that they
are wax. They look exceedingly
pious and solemn, as if they had en
tirely rcliuijuisheil sublunary aff.iirs,
and fixed their hopes and thoughts on
a very melancholy heaven. Tho sar
casm lies in their exact resemblaiico
in lace, form, and manner to tlio no
bleniainulillW'ent acquaintances, noted
for their worldly and selfish disposi
tion well-bred egotists and syco
phants, who frequent the tables of
the rich and hang on tho favors of tho
titled Their secular expression is
skillfully blended with one of satii'ti
nioniousiiess, and yet the likeness is
accurately preserved. Tho effect is
ludicrous, and the figures arc stinging
sarcasms embodied in wax. Tho or
iginals do not like it, as may he sup-po.-ed,
but they do not want to quar
rel with tho nobleman, of whom they
speak as a humorist that will have bis
way, and so try to hide their chagrin.
A number of new toad-caters bavo
carefully kept away from tho Sicili
an's entertainments, fearing that they
shall bo reproduced iu his monastery.

Tho medicil faculty ot' iMiiielsou
ville, and in fact throughout tho wholo
of Wiiiaham county, Connecticut, aro
greatly interested iu an experiment
of sddn grafting which has been going
on there, and which has finally proved
a gratifying Kiicces. On tho JUst of
December, 187S, Jesse, an eleven year
old sou of Mr. El win Morgan, an in
lluential citizen of Canterbury, an ad
jacent village, fell into a shallow vat
containing a solution of potash in
boiling water. Ho struck on both
feet, tlio liquid coming nearly up to
his hips, and instantly tho skin began
to j,ieel oil'. With remarkable pres
ence of mind tho lad leaped to tho
lloor, where ho lay unconscious for
son 10 time. It was found that tho
Uesh on both legs had been so horri
bly and thoroughly boiled that no
cells remained for a now skin to form
a growth upon. Tho boy's life was
ono of excruciating agony for mouth.
Tho seared members began to turn un
der the body, and actually "flexed"
or knit to the back of his thigh. A
young physician, (ioorgo J. lloss, of
that town, finding that his older
brethren had given up tho case as in
curable, an I one w'hicli must speedily
result iu death, determined to atteuiiib
tho salvation of tho lad's life by skin
grafting. Ho was"pisbod and poohod
at," to use his own words, by tho old
beads of the profession without mer
cy, but tho boy's parents imploring
him to undertake the operation ho.was
filially induced to try it. Over two
thousand grafts were used, tho mother
of tho child, a noble-hear ted coach
num. in tho family, tho -hid himself
and many of the neighbors submitting
portions of their cuticle for the oper
ation. A prevailing desire was man
ifested to have the child livo without
bocoinlng a cripple. Hundreds of
visitors llockod to seo the patient, and
Implored Dr. Koss to try a piece of
their skin for tho operation. Tho
pieces of lies h were pulled oil with
forceps, and wcro about three times
the hizo of a pin. The process of
i grafting is similar to that employed
ii horticulture. One of tho limbs
looked as though pitted with small
pox. Tho grafts grow fastest in tho
spring mouths. Ono of them is put
ou n muscle, where it sinks iu and de
posits a cell, after which the top
sloughs off. Tho logs aro nearly ro
sturud to tiioir normal and natural
functions, ami tho child can walk a
short distance without a crutch, but
is still very weak from oxhuustiou
