THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of the United States.
10 BROADWAY NEW YORK
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, and its
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
Asa (iUAIlANTEK 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.
Alter the policy has been in force for three years.

iinsiii-eesslul lawsuit, and a-keil aid to
enable him to return to Ntireinlmr',
his place of resilience. Liszt pye him
a hearty reception and opened his desk
to get him sumo money, but found ho
possessed only three dueats.
"You see,"nid the generous artist,
"that I am as poor us yourself. How
ever, I have credit, and can coin money
willi my piano. I have a miniaturo
given mo by the. Emperor of Austria;
the painting is of little value, but the
diamonds arc line; sell the diamonds
and keep the money."

iiocarneii it to a jeweier, wno, Hiipeet

he had stolen it, had him arrest
ed and thrown into prison. The
stranger writ, for his generous benefac
tor, who immediately called upon the
jeweler and lold himlhat the man was
innocent, aud thai lie had given him
"Rut who are you?" asked the jew
eler. "My name is Lis.t," he replied.
"I kiK'W 'f no linancier of that
name," said the j 'weler.
"Very possible," aid Li.t.
"Rut do you know that these dia
mond. are worth (i.ooo llnrius?''
"So much the better fur him to whom
I gave them."
Rut yon imisi In- very rich to make
"My sole fortune eon.-its of three

"Then you are a fool," said the jew
"No," said Lis.l. "I have only to
move the ends ol my lingers to get as
much money as I waul."
"Then you are a sorcerer," aid the
1 will show von the kind of sorcery

Seeing a piano in the back parlor of
the jeweler's shop, the eccentric artUt
sat ilown to it ami began to improvise a
ravishing air. A beautiful young lady
made her appearance, and at the close
of the performance exclaimed:
"Von know him then?" said the jew
eler to his daughter.
"I have never seen him before," she
said, "but there is no one in tho world
but Liszi who can produce such sounds
from a piano."
The jeweler was satisfied, the stranger
was released and relieved, the report of
Liszt being in the city tlew, and lie was
wailed upon and feted by the nobles,
who besought him to give a concert in
their cily. The jeweler, wcing the
homage that was paid to the man of
genius, was ambitions of forming an al
liance w ith him, and said to him:
"How do you lin 1 my daughter?"
"Adorable!" was the reply.
"What do you think of marriage?"
con tinned the jeweler.
"Well enough to try it," said Liszt.
"What do you sav to a dowry of 3,
000,000 of francs?" lie was next asked.
"1 will accept it," was the reply,
"and thank you, too."
"Well, my daughter likes you and
you like her," said the jeweler "the
dowry is ready. Will you by my son-in-law?"
"Gladly!" replied Lisy.t; and the mar
riage was celebrated tho week follow

could sell his cotton. Not knowing his
customer the merchant refined, but
about this lime a well-known elder of
tho church entered and tapping tho
farmer on the shoulder, asked:
"How are you, Rrother Frank?"
"Is that gentleman a member of your

the dealer, "go through this house from

Condensed History of Steam.
About -jsu y.-ars R. C, Hero, of Alex

some of the powers of steam, and was
moved by its power.
Iu 5 10 A. 1)., an architect arranged
several caldrons of water, each covered
with the wide bottom of a leather tube,
which rose to a narrow top, with pipes
extended to the rafters of an adjoining
building. A lire was kindled beneath
the caldrons, and the house was shaken
with the efforts of the steam ascending
the, tubes. This is the first uotice of the
power of steam recorded.
In 1.1:1 1. June 17 Raseo de Garay tried
a steamboat of -'00 tons with tolera

and a moveable wheel on each side of
the ship. It was laid aside as im
practicable. A present was, however,
made to Garay.
