It tells an engrossing and human story
of a woman who enmeshes herself in
falsehoods in a vain attempt to lead an
honest life after a reprehensible past.
The characters in the play are drawn

the author of the play, famous among

EQUITABLE. If you wish to know why, send for: i, the
report of the Superintendent of Insurance for the State of New
York on the examination of The Equitable; 2, for actual results
of maturing policies; 3, for statement of death claims paid in

Equitable’s supremacy: First, its financial stability; second,
its great profits and advantages to living policy-holders; third,
the promptness of its payments and liberality of its settlements.
