Tlie J'ojiularit y of t lie Equitable Life Assurance Society,
imlicateil by the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nual New I5usiues has been larger than that of anv other
Company in the vvorhl, is due, in a great measure, to its well
know n roiiiitness in the payment of Death Claims, audits
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
Asa (il'ARAXTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious inlliicnce of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new, throughout the United States.
A BSOLUT ELY INCONTESTABLE,
After the policv has been in force fcr 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

And thereby to popularize life insuiace to a degree before
Iiv 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:
FIIIST The Equitable has a larger ratio ot assets to lia
bilities 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.

two hours' speech of great ability and
power. He painted in glowing colors the
unwarranted miinler, wlncl he character

warmth for a verdict fixing the punish

their room, and remained about an hour
when they adjourned to supper.
At 10:0 o'clock the waiting crowd in
the court-room were surprised by the jury
calling for tho sherilf and sending for the
judge, with the announcement that they
had made a verdict, having been in their
room about five hours. The judge p.t once
came in, and the jury filed before his honor,
anil the roll was called in the midst of
deathly silence, when the foreman handed
tint verdict to the clerk, who read in a clear
voice as follows :

Tlio Colonel's Coffee Mill.
Yesterday old Joe Hemlock, one of
tin.' blackest colored men iu Detroit,
was promenading through the editorial
rooms of tlm AVce Vwm, in search of
money enough to buy ti new pair of
boots, and lite sight of him revived mi
old recollection. In lxiil, after the
iVl real, from Bull linn, tlm third Michi
gan Infant ry went inlo camp at Hunt
er's Place, and old Joe, then a middle
aged darkey, came inlo camp as a run
away. Cob Met 'oimell seized upon him
for n cook, and after instructions Joo
was given charg.t of tlm Colonel's
kitchen. His first meal was dinner,
and about time for it to appear ho walk
ed iu on the Colonel, made a very low
bow, and said:
"Kernel, Ie not rpiito up to the sit

Difference Between "Cousins."
The difference between city and their
country cousins is more marked than
most people believe. The lirsl impres
sion a man has on finding himself for
the first time iu a great city is of vague
excitement, accompanied by a sense of
danger. The multiplicity of objects ap
pears fantastic to an eye accustomed to
rural scenery: the uniiilcrmittent noises,
tiie entangled yet purposeful panorama
of unfamiliar human faces, combine to
throw the visitor into n state of mind
totally sir:." jv to him. And amid so
much liiumllii'itis life he se.'s death ev
erywhere on i he lookout, for a victim.
Put. if the visitor to these strange re
gions looks at tiie faces of tiiu-e ho
meets in search of some relied ion of
his own per;tH'iiatio!i, he looks in vain.
The countenance of the e'ey man, as he
threads hiswiiy along the -.t reefs, iscui'
iouy iiiipassiv.,. At a first glance it
appears al-.o to be uuobs.'rvaul, but this
it is nol. for though be scemsto look at
nothing, il soon heroines evident that ho
sees everything. He nicch iniealiy in
forms hiiiiscli out of tiie corner of his
eye, of cveniiiiiig that might tend to
obstruct or threaten him; and though
he passes through a tliou-and people,
without encountering ihe gaze or tread
ing on the toes ol any one of them, bo
will recognize an acquaintance or cal
culate to an in ! i the rale of speed at
which he 1UU--1. make the crossing iu or
der to escape tin; omnibus from one di
rectiM4i au i the truck from the other.
Doubile.-s cu--i"in and memory will ac
count for a large pari ol il; yet the im
passive face would probably anpear far
less iinp:is-i- ' I ii in it docs had not the.
contraction nf Ihe facial niu-elcs, brought
about by the inuunicralile impressions
and tiie impos-il.iiiiy of responding to
them all, be. -nine in a manner lixed.

Testing, Hyr Innocence.
The following touching scene recent
ly occurred iu a court of juslice in
A poor, pale seamstress was arraign.
I'd for theft. She appeared at the bar
with her baby of 11 months on her arm.
She went to gel some work one day,
and stole three gold coins of In francs
each. The money was missed soon af
ter .she left her employer, and a servant
was sent to her room to claim it. The
servant found her about to quit tiie
room with the gold coins in her hand.
Slut said to the servant, "I was goim;
to carry them back to you." Neverthe
less, she was carried to the Commission
er of Police, and he ordered focr to be
sent before a police court for trial. She
was too poor to engage a lawy er, and
when asked by the Judge what she had
to say for herself, she answered: "The
day 1 went to my employer's I carried
my child with me. It was in my arms
as it is now. I was md paying atten
tion to it. There were several gold
coins mi the mantlepiece, and unknown
tomc.il stretched out its litl'e hand and
seized three pieces, w hich I did not ob
serve until I got home. I at om e put
on my bonnet, and was going to my
employer to return them, when 1 was
arrested. This is Ihe solemn truth, us
1 hope for heaven's mercy."
Tlie court could not believu this sto
ry. They upbraided the mother for her
imprudence iu endeavoring to palm oil
such a manifest lie for the truth. They
besought her, for her own sake, to re
fract so absurd a tale, for it could have
no effect but to oblige the court to sen
tence her to a much mom severe pun
ishment than they were disposed to in
lliet upon one so young, and evidently
so deep in poverty.
Theso appeals' had no effect, except
to strengthen the poor mother's perti
nacious adherence, to her original slory.
As this firmness was su-laiiied by that
look of innocence which the most adroit
criminal can never counterfeit, tho
court was at some loss to discover what
decision just eo demanded. To relievo
their embarrassment, one of the Judges
proposed to renew the scene described
ny tho mother. Three gold coins went
placed on the ulerk's table. The moth
er was requested to assume the position
iu which she stood at her employer'
house-. Them was then a breathless
pause iu court. Tlm baby soon discov
ered the blight coins, eyed them font,
moment, smiled, and then stretched
forth its liny hand, and clutched them
in its lingers with a miser's eagerness.
The mother was at once uequilled.
