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, audits
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
Asa (iUARANTEE 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 has paid since its organ
ization to January 1st, 1880, 51,882,730, and
closed its hooks upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim."
The Equitable Life Assurance Society was the first to in

And thereby to popularize life insurace to a degree before
Iy 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
bilities than any of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income last year
than any other company. N
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.

New Haven, Ct., January 24. Roclloff
Von Barcn, a Ilolluiidor, who has resided
in New Haven with his wife and child for
six inouthH, has fallen heir to an immense
fortuno by the death of his great grund-
uncle, Ileinrieh Spier, of Rotterdam, who
bequeaths him his property. Lat week
lleinrich Von Barcn, half-brother to
Koelloir, called at this city direct from
Rotterdam, accompanied by William A.
Beach, the New York lawyer, and, Roelloff
sriys, told him ot his good fortune, and
offered him 125,000 in cash if ho would
make him niutinger of his estates. llein
rich to pay Roelloff 125,000 weekly. This
offer was refused, and Roelloff has since re
ceived letters from the mayor of Rotterdam
and two notaries who drew the will, in
forming him that thecstuto left him is esti
mated between $25,000,000 and $40,000,
000. It is said the property is tho accu
mulation of several generations, and in
eludes, besides an immenso amount ot real
and personal property, two shipyards and a
fleet of seventy vessels. Van Buren goes to
New York to-morrow to meet the mayor
and notaries, who are said to have arrived
there to consult with him. Van Barcn is
about 35, and says he was formerly a
Catholic priest, entering upon that calling
at the wish of his father and other
relatives, but after serving three
years renounced religion against
their wishes. He further says that in an
altercation with his half brother over the
matter he was stubbed, and drawing his
own knife killed his half-brother in self
defence. Acting under the advice of the
authorities he went to London where he
married an English woman, ami lived un
der the name of Joliann Spier, a name he
has retained in this country. When he ar
rived in New Haven he was penniless, and
his appeals for aid to his relatives being
disregarded, and unable to get employment,
he has lived mainly on charity.
Bad habits arc easily contracted; so are
Colds, and both are very hard to get rid of.
The Colds are quickly and surely cured by
Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup.
lv you take our advice you will lose no
time in calling on your druggist for 'Sel
lers' Cough Syrup" without an equal.

What strikes the mind of the civilian
is that we have a small army, which
generally breaks down in all its details
whenever any call is made upon it, and
that our artillery, which we are given
to regard a.-i the best in the world, turns
out to be not far from the worst, while
our military expenditure is out of all
proportion with results. The total mil
itary expenditure-of tho Gorman army
is ),o'J2MW: on a peace footing it
numbers 1K,(i7'J ollk'cr.s and -lOO,!!,'!')
rank and file, on a war footing 81, lM
otlieors and 1,27'vUil rank and tile, all
trained soldiers, while behind this vast
forcn there are the land-strum and tho
troops of thelield reserve, which would
enable it to plae in the held 2,.Oni,00J
men without drawing on the last re
serves. What on too other hand, is
our position? Our army estimates
amount to i'lA.ti-l.'i.OOO. For this we
have 7,'I-it officers and l'Jo,C7.) rank and
lile, 11,000 enrolled pensioners and
army reserve force, l.')7..'i,iii militiamen,
14.NUI yeomanry cavalry, and l'.M.IDl
volunteers. It will be said that Ger
many can obtain men cheaper than us;
on account of compulsory sendee; but,
making full allowance for tho differeneo
in tho rale of pay to German and Kng
lish soldiers in the regular army, this
does not account for the enormous dis
proportion iu expenditure aud results.

Reason in Dogs.
I knew a Skye terrier w ho, being told
to carry a fishing-rod, carefully experi
mented along its length to find its cen
ter of gravity, then carried it on till his
master came to a narrow jiath through
a wood. Here Skye considered, dropped
the rod, took it by the end, and dragged
it under him lengthwise till tho open
road was gained, when betook the rod
by the center of gravity again, and went
on. This could not he a copy of human
actions, but the result of original rea
soning. Mr. Henry Cecil gives the following
on the authority tif tho late Mr. Dawes,
the astronomer: "Being busy in his
garden and having a large bunch of
keys in his hand lie gave it to a retriev
er to hold for him till he was at liberty.
Going into the house soon after he
got to reclaim the keys. The remem
brance of what ho had done with them
only returned to him when he required
to see them in tho evening; Ho then
recalled that ho had given them to tho
dog, and forgotten to take them again,
CaTling him, and looking impressively
into bis face, ho said, 'My keys! feteli
me my keys!' The dog looked wistful
and puzzled for a moment, and then
bounded off to tho garden, his master
following. Ho went straight to tho
root of an apple tree, eatehed up tho
keys anil brought them. May wo not
fairly iut into words tho dog's train of
reasoning, thus: 'My master has given
mo thoso keys to hold; ho has forgotten
them; I cannot carry them all day; but
1 must put them in safety whero I can
find them again.1"
Mr. K. Howson sends us tho story of a
terrier-like dog of no particular breed,
named Uglymug, who had a poodlo for
companion. Whenever Uglyrnug saw
signs of ft family meal being spread

labyrinthine shrubbery, under the pre

M. Jules Amigiies has communicated
to the Figaro a long document, which
he declares to lie the political testament
of , tho late Prince Loui N'ajxilcon. Tho
lucubration ends wild a kind of pro
gramme of the third Kni'iire, the prin

tho army and magistracy in accordance
with the new Constitution; formation of
a Parliament in which nil social groups
should bo represented. This document,
written in 1H77, was published on tho
day of the anniversary of J)ec. 1', in tho
hope, doubtless, of serving as a pro
