Old ,s. Louis.
It iscnrioustorcmoniber that although
the early constitution of St. Louis, so
long as it was a foreign srttli'iuont, was
essentially ri'uch, it was luit foriuux
triinoly slight spaoo of tinio under any
legal French Covernnicnt. It made a
jutrt of the Fremh irovince of Louis
iana, and was established in 17(5:1 by a
fur-trader, 1'ierro Laclede Ligueste, un
der authority of the (Jovernor-General
at New Orleans, and was named aftes
that gracious rococo sovereign. Louir
XV. But it was precisely iu i7ii.l that
Louis XV., terminating 1v the Treaty
of Paris his disastrous conflict known in
Europe as the Seven Years' War, and
here as the Old French War, was obliged
to yield to Spain all of the French pos
sessions on the west 1 ank of the Missis
sippi, togrtber w ith Xew Orleans, and
to (ireat Britain those on the east bank.
The new domination, however, by no
means began at once, not by reason of
resistance to it, but for reasons connect
ed with the sparsity of population, tho
vast distances to be traversed, and lack
of physical ability in the new ownership
to manifest its power. Four vears after
ward, or in 17tirt, some Spanish soldiers
under Kios arrived at St. Louis and
completed the transfer, and it was not
till 1780 that the first Span ih Governor,
l'edro Ficrnas, was installed.
Meanw hile, many French settlers who
had established themselves in a line of
posts on the other side of the river,
along a trail kept open from Canada,
preferring, after the Treaty of 1'aris, a
Latin domination at least to that of
(ireat Britain, had crossed over and
joined their compatriots. lrincipal
among these was Captain St.-Ange de
Hellerivc, who had commanded at Ioit
Chartres, near where Kaskaskia now
stands. He brought with him forty sol
diers of his garrison. He was invested
at St. Louis with the chief -command,
both military and civil, and continued
to retain it, "or something like it, by his
personalinfluence, long after he was
nominally superseded. He had great
power, among other ways, over the In
dian tribes, and made the famous Puu
tiac his int.mate personal friend.
' The Spanish regime continued peace
fully under somo live or six Governors
down to 1801, when the whole territory,
having first been re-transferred to
France after tho victories of Xapoleon,
was sold uv JVapoleon to thoLmtcd
States, in Jell'erson's Presidency, for

an important auxiliary even initio wars
of tue Europeans. Just as French and
Indians organized for the massacre "of
Braddock near Fort Du Ouesne.' or
'Pittsburgh, the British brought down
Indians upon the French settlements of
tho West. In 1789, 1,4K) savages from
the vicinity of Mackinaw, said to have
been led by 140 British regulars, sud
denly appeared before St. Louis, and
made a lierce onslaught upon it. They
were fortunately beaten oil', and the ap
proach of a body of Americans -for we
aided our French allies where we could,
as they aided ns at Yorktown com
pleted their discomfiture. This was
known as the year of the Grand Coup,
just as the arrival of ten boats together
at another time for protection against
robbers, an extraordinary prevalence
of honey-bees, and the like, in the an
nals of the small settlement, caused
distinctive appellations to be conferred,
on tho years in which they took place.
1 When tho American flag was tirt
hoited, in 1801, it floated over a littlo
village of 1.0'.' houses and three streets,
in one of which was a log church, un
der the jurisdiction, like all other eccle
siastical matters in the province, of tho
Bishopric of Cuba. Around tho village
was a line of stockade and stone fort
resses, er.-cted by the Spanish Governor
.Cruzat after the Indian invasion before
mentioned. Up to a few years ago
there was frtill standing on the river
bank an old round tower, somewhat
like the disputed mill at Newport, which

would spread a long strip of canvas
along the room and then mark it oll
into sections tho size he intended to
make the pictures. Next he would mix
up about a dozen pots of paint ns
many colors as it was necessary for
him to use. Taking the brush from one
pot he would paint a daub, a tree or
something on each section; then ho
would take up another color aud co
along the strip of canvas daubing water
or houses on each picture, and so on
till he had turned out the whole string,
:.ll alike, you know. In this way be
managed to paint about twenty pictures
u day. He received seventy-cents for
a h" picture. My informant assured

that would be about fM6 for tho day's
work. 1 his would be enough for tho

funds would be out and he would go
to work again. In this way he man
aged to keep alloat and be drunk tho

TO THE POLICY-HOLDERS OF THE
EQUITABLE LIFE ASSUR
Gentlemen: The officers of the Soci
ety beg to call the attention of the policy
holders to a few facts:
The Equitable Life Assurance Society of
the United States was founded in 1859. In
the present year it will complete the first
quarter-century of its existence. What
could it fairly hive expected, at the start,
to da in the brief number of years that have
now elapsed? What have the leading com
panies in the world done in the same time?
The Equitable Society of London, the
great pioneer in this branch of assuranco,
commenced business in 1702, nearly a cen
tury before us, and is at present, aver 120
years old. its assets are about $22,000,000,
and the amount at risk about $30,000,000.
The Scottish Widows' Fund, at present
the largest British office, commenced busi
ness in 1815, and at the end of fifty years
had $20,000,000 of assets and $00,000,000
The New York Life Insurance Company
commenced business on the 12th of Aoril.
1843. At the end f its twenty-fifth year,
less four months, it had $13,424,925 ef
assets and $102,132,514 at risk, with a sur
plus of $4,459,189.
Against these result of other companies
this Society has, six months before the end
f its twenty-fifth year, $33,030,581 of assets
and $275,100,583 at risk, with a surplus of
$9,115,009 at 4 per cent., or of $12,109,750
at 4l2 per cent, interest, according t the
American Experience Table, this last
amount being in conformity to the standard
adopted by the State of New York. The
surplus at both standards is greater than
the surplus of any other company in the
world. Since its organization it has return
ed to its policy-holders in cash $73,877,
099.51. Further, during tho past ycir,
1883, it has issued policies for $81,129,750,
being $L0,0G7,849 more than any other
