THE EQUIT i - ... w Assurance Society of IJj'O BROADWAY 1ST W YORK Assets, $-38,000,000. ' The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society, indicated by the fact that for Eleyen 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 equitable claim exists. Asa GUARANTEE of this, cious influence of a technical companies, the Equitable makes new, throughout the United States.' ABSOLUTELY INCONTESTABLE, 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.'' The Equitable Life Assurance Society was the first to in troduce the TONTINE SAVINGS FUND POLICY, And thereby to popularize life insurace to a degree before unknown. , By 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 1 ilities than any of the leading companies. SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income last year than any other company. THIRD 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.

JIK HITS THE NAIL ON TEE HEAD Editor Bulletin: The amount of love and admiration en tertained by the radical party, as represent ed by the Evening News, is exemplified in their comments upon the disaffection of our talented fellow townsman, Judge Bird, who it would apear, has had the courage to thiak and act upon his own responsibility, in matters political and otherwise. The judge previous to the meeting at Chicago, and before he had seen fit to exercise a freeman's prerogative, was considered one of the brightest jewels in the republican crown, and was eulogized to the blue skies above, as an intelligent gentleman and a faithful worker in the canse. But what a fall has their intelligent and thoughtful colored man received! Having proclaimed himself heartily in favor of Hon. John II. Oberly, and as en tertaining a decided regard for the unsec tional democracy, he is met with hisses and howls from his former admirers, and was actually driven from tho ball at Chicago, according to the report as published in the News, Monday evening. The article, mostly taken from the Chi cago Tribune, was prefaced with some "timely remarks" by the News' editor, to the effect, that the democratic charge that the negro was purchasable, was true and a few other flings, which, of course, was en joyed (?) by the colored men alluded too. Now I want to know by what authority does the News or any of its radical sup porters presume to question the integrity of Judge Bird, or intimate that he was pur chased I Has he not as much talent and integrity now as was Ins, while supposibly support ing a ticket, whoso followers never did ought but snub and crush him) Has uot the News, timo and again madly and wildly asserted tho manhood and especial houesty of the colored race, and reiterated time and again, that the colored man knew his rights as well as any one, aud could not be bought? Why this sudden change of base? I tell you, my colored friends, that the only foundation for this base and contemptible attack upon one of the most intelligent col ored men in Southern Illinois, is caused simply by reasou of his coming out squarely, and promulgating opinions, which he hon estly cutertaius and which forsooth hap pens to differ from the programme, which the radical leaders have laid down for the guidance of the colored voters. I would ask in all candor why should we not as a race, entertain thu kindest feelings toward the Hon. John H. Oberly? As Judge Bird truthfully said at Chicago, he is a trtto cxponant of republican principles sufficiently so at least to suit tho racci whom lie has so benefited in this state. Is it not a well-know fact that he, long years ago, advocated .with all the talent and eu ergy at his command tho perfect freedom oft' .; .'iir schools of the stuto of Illinois, i. -':. . .f race or color? !i t do this in spite of tho most vi 1' i isition coupled with threats and ulin : s ho not not entitled to your es 1 conlldenco for theso battloings, ; ir rights, and bringing down upon his. tta -otod head, tho execrations of thous ands of hi political fiionds? I can but think the colored man who docs not cast his vote for John II. Oberly, presents a spectacle at once ungrateful and unjust, and displays a wanton degree of ignorance of the service which that talent ed and warm hearted gentleman rendered in their behalf. Stand by tho man who fought tor you, . and show to tho world that tho spirit of ap preciation still finds a resting placo within your hearts. I can't seo why tho colored voters of this county should devote so much of their timo and attention to tho republican straight ticket now in the field. Surely the caucus which placed that ticket in nomination had but little regard for the desires of their colored friends and adherants. When it became known that a colored man was to bo put in nomination for the office of circuit clerk, the colored fraternity were promptly notified that John Roevcs had secured a ' patent right upon that position, and that "no niggers need apply." Other attempts of the colored element to gain representa tion on the ticket was promptly repelled, and the whites finally allowed, without in terruption, to concoct a list which they barely hope will win the loaves and fishes. Ia view of thso facts, it should not surprise any one that the more intelligent of the colored voter should possibly remem ber theso slights and kicks, and at the last day render some substantial as sistance to the independent boys who are in the field. At least it would seem more manly tor the colored man to desert and despise the organization which had done nought but spit upon them, than to cringe like a cur dog, and present the oth er cheek. I do not blame the sprightly editor of the News for making so desperate a fight against the success of the Independent ticket. The failure of the Republican cause in this county sounds the death knell of his little paper, for without the county patronage his paper could not survive ten days. Of course this is tho fate of the paper. The whole independent ticket will be elected, and its success will dem onstrate practically bow ungrateful de feated politicians are in general, for what little sympathy a consumptive campaign daily obtains from its friends, who expected success, mainly through its instrumentality, cannot be utilized to any alarming extent. The News has made a good fight, and while it has been constrained, at times, to dip into the republican slop bucket it has, in the main, made a sprightly defence and done all that its most ardent friends could hope for. We shall all finally miss the News and its editor, but truth is mighty and has generally been uble to overcome ordinary obsticles, and the demise of the little even ing issue will only strengthen people in the belief that the adage is infallible. Colored Louihana Democrat. AN EDUCATIONAL ENDORSEMENT. The Rev. C. A. Harvey, D. 1)., of the Howard University, of Washington, has addressed the following letter to Messrs. II. H. Warner & Co., of Rochester, N. Y.: Gentlemen: I take pleasure in stating that I have for two years past been ac quainted with the remedy known ns War ner's Safo Kidney and Liver Cure, and with its remarkablo curative efficiency in obstinate and so-called incurable cases of Bright's Disease in this city. In some of these cases, which seemed to be in the last stages, and which had been given up by practicioners of both schools, the speedy change wrought by this remedy seemed but little less than miraculous. I am con vinced that for Bright's Disease, in all its stages, no remedy heretofore discovered can be held for ono moment in comparison with this. Respectfully C. A. Harvey. . SURE SKIN. If you see a lady drop her glove and a gentleman by the side of her. kindly tell ing her tn pick it up, you need not hesitate in forming an opinion that they are mar ried, and if you see a man or woman's face all covered with blotches and pimples, you must not hesitate but tell them to use Spring Blossom. Prices 50 cents, trial bot tles 10 cents. A Down Town Merchant having passed several sleepless nights, disturbed by the agonies and cries of a suffering child, and becoming convinced that Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup was just the article needed, procured a supply tor the child. On reaching home and acquainting his wife with what he had dono she re fused to have it administered to the child as sho was strongly in favor of Homm pathiy. That night the child passed in suffering, and tho parents without sleep. Returning homo the day following, the father found the baby still worse; and while contemplating another sleepless night, the mother stepped from the room to attend to some domestic duties, and left the father with the child. During her ab sence bo administered a portion of tho Soothing Syrup to the baby and said noth ing. That night all hands slept well, and tho little fellow awoke in tho morning bright and happy. Tho mother was de lighted with the sudden and wonderful change, and although at first offendod at the deception practiced upon her, lias contin ued to use tho tho Svrup, and sufferinir cry ing babies and restless nights have disap peared. A single trial af the Syrup nercr yet failed to relievo tho baby, and over come tho prejudices of the mother. Sold by all druggists. 25 cents a bottle.
