THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of the United States.
10 BROADWAY "YORK.
The ropularity of tlie 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 years.
, "The Equitable Life
ization to January 1st,
closed its books upon that date without' a con
tested or past due claim."
Tin? Equitable Life Assurance Society was the first to in
TONTIXE SAVINGS FUND POLICY,
And thereby to popularize life insurace to a degree before
Ily 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
Lilities than any of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income last year
than any other company.
TIIIKD The Equitable's 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.
TlicSocioty takes pleasure in referrina: to tlie following well known business

At the Table A Glimpse at the Literature
of Tea and Coffee,
New Vink Kvuiiliijr. I'ost.
Profound treaties have boon written,
wordy arguments havo been wasted,
and sarcastic expletives leveled gener
ally about tho mental as well ua tho
physical inlluenco of tea and coffee up
on civilized people The Knglish, who
generally take to tea for breakfast, tiro
becoming gradually converted to cof
fee, but they are valiant tea drinkci-j
yet. although it makes the llesh tlabby
and skin w rinkled. TLe two decoctions
oll'cred unfailing subjects for the book
writers and reviewers to quarrel over un
til the famous Liebig with his chemical
discoveries asserted that tea and coll'eo
hail become necessaries of life to w hole
nations, but especially essential to the
poorer i lasscs, supplying a void not
readily tilled up by the limited supply
of good meats and w holcsoine food gen
erally. Coll'eo and tea were introduced into
Kuglaud like Komulus and Renins, and
were each in turn relentlessly abused,
not onlv by the people, but bv the Stale.
Coli'ee inherited the tilleof "hell broth."
Tea was called "rank poison," but, as a
refuge for the wils of the day from
smaller frv, the collec houses from the
start, were always cnormouslv patron
ized. In HHio that, clever ami comfort
able old body, IVpys, wrote:
"I did semi fora'cup of lea (a China
drink) of which I had never drank be
fore," and six or seven years later ho
again wrote: "Home, al there' found
my wife making of tea, a drink which
Mr. Pclling. the potiieary, tells her is
good for her cold and delluxions."
This precious drug the good old lady
was becoming so happy over, the pot
tieary has sold her at a frightful price,
at the very lowest a crown for an
ounce; but l'epys was thereafter great
ly comforted by a hand-bill of a certain
(iarway of Kxchange alley, who now
sold tea at so low prices as l(!.s to ids
a pound. Many noblemen, physic
ians, and surgeons resorted to his house
to drink thereof. Dr. Johnson was a
most insatiable tea-drinker. Among
his early tea-drinking day memories
was one of (iarrack, who, though ho
entertained an inordinat" love for tho
cheering cup, when taking tea with
Peg Woilington scolded her for making
it, too strong while it was so cosily.
Later, plea-ant tea talks of the Doctor
describes himself as "a hardened and
shameless tea-drinker, who has formally
years diluted his meals with only tho
infusion of this fascinating plant ; whose
kettle has scarcely lime to cool; who
wiih tea amuses himself in the evcniHgs
and solaces the midnight and welcome
night.." Who now-a-dcys can fancy a
Mistress Pi . making the precious
beverage for a DrJolmsoti at I o'clock
in the morning atid listening to his
morning ta'k without, a sign of impa
tience or feeling bored, to say nothing
of feeling sleepy ?
The ( iermatis are masters in the art
of preparing collec, especially Ihodor
mali vrmix. lake the French, they

during the day, assisted by a cigar; es
"'daily is this nmdi.' desirable for tins
sedentary life. Collec contains a sub
stance called thcivc, a volatile matter

during the process of preparation. An
oinn f good lea contains about ten
grain- of thieve, quile Millieient to cre
ate ery unpleasant symptoms, sonic
tiling like over exhilaration, or.to place
it mildly, intoxication. Tea drinkers
I'liii lla i el'ore calculate how much tea
to drink as from three to four grains of
iheiic arc simply siiliieiciit for a dav,
and therefore three ounces a week is
re. illy more than one should consume,
A friar of a monaslry in Arabia no

Tho great cattle and sheep raising re
gions of this count ry begin one hundred
and lifty miles west of Omaha, the starling-point
of the I'tiioii Pacific Railroad,
one thousand four hundred miles west
of the Atlantic. They extend west
through Nebraska and Wyoming over
the fertile Laramie plains to the Hooky
Mountains, and a thousand miles on to
wards the Pacific, through I'lah, Ore
gon, and Washington Territories, w here
there is ample room for more than live
times the live-stock now raised. Start
ing from the warm shores of the (iuif of
Mexico, the great. American gra.ing
groumls run one thousand live hundred
miles north, over the international
boundary linn into ( 'anada. They in
clude large portions of Texas, which
muster live and a half million of cattle;
Colorado, with thirty million acres
adapted for the growth of grain, cattle
or sheep; Wyoming, estimated to con
tain iifty-live thousand square miles of
grazing; Montana, larger than the
Ilritish Islands, and half of it under
stood to consist of fertile valleys and
grass-covered plains. Over such' a w ido
area the nianagcuieut i.s somewhat di
vcrsilicd tho herds vary from less than
one thousand to more than fifty thou
The raising of cattle and sheep iu this
immense territory is yet iu its infancy.
The choicest ranges along the lines of

within a few years, and with tho pres
ent activity iu extending new lines of
roail largo tracts of these superior
grazing lands will bo available.

The elegantly-furnished drawing-room

the result of a mean parsimony and a
persistent paring in other directions.
