There will be services in tho Methodist
Church, in this place, on Sunday next.
It is probable -JfttfjBie Rev. Mr. PARKS,
of AngustaJ will preach on this occasion.
A Qu?rterly Meeting sat at Harmony
Church, six miles East of. us, on Sunday
last,- at which the Rev. SUM BROWNE
presided. This meeting'is still going on,.
and we hear that it is likely to continue
throughout the week.
Last week - we spoke of the card j
of our young friend, HUGH B. HARRI
SON, which came to us too late for pub
lication. This week wo give it place.
HUGH, as a gallant man should, addres
ses himself "particularly to the ladies."
... A Narrow and a Happy Escape
"We hear that on Sunday afternoon last,
ou?>much' esteemed friends, Mr. and
Mrs. Jsrb; H. HoLLrNGswoRiH, with
their little boy, a child of three or four
years, met with an extremely narrow cs
cape from imminent peril. Driving to
call Qn their neighbor, Mrs. JAMES HILL,
the horse took fright soon after they had
entered her gate, and dashed aside into a
field. Mr. H. endeavored to curb him,
but immediately both reins snapped en
tirely asunder, after which the animal
turned and ' tore furiously through tiie
gate again, dashing tho buggy violently
against Uh? trunk of a huge oak. Its
three occupants were first thrown out,
and then tho buggy fell with-its top upon
them. But, strange to say, all three es
caped without tho slightest injury. And
this is a horse, which ladies and young
girls have been driving for years, a horse
thought to be tho most amiable and trupt
worthy of .all horses, e

" Murder Will Ont."
Most of our readers will remember the
murder of our fellow-citizen, Price, at
Quaker Springs, near Augusta, in De

was committed by six negro fellows, ol" |

a third i?*ow serving a-term in (b/epeni

are compounded with great care, and in such pro

What this great restorative will do must be gath

They will be able to offer the best Cotton, Grain and Truck Land in the

the purchaser.to pay for the same out of the crops raised.
They will also assist Immigrants, when necessary, to transportation and

A lengthened experience lias demonstrated that the rates of Premium ordinarily
charged ny Life Insurance Companies are from twenty-five to thiitf per cent, in excess
of what aro necessary for a, snj'p and legitimate conduct of the business. In other
words, parefqily and'piai?eiitiy-manage? Companies charging "Mutual" rates have
been able to return to their policyholders from 25 to 30 per cent, of the amount charged
When Life Insurance Companies were first organized, the reliability of the data
upon which the premiums were constructed had not undergone the test of experience.
It was thought, therefore, no more than common prudence to adopt a scale of premiums
which would, in any event, meet all the presumed and unforeseen contingencies pf the.
As long as the matter was involved in some doubt, it w as bette? to fix the rato too
high than to incur thc ??di nf makin.git too lp\v ; btv*."*', in the former ouse, the error
could bc easily reme? li cd. itt least in part, by returning to thc policyholders, at certain
intervals, such portion . of the premium charged as was found unnecessary for the
purposes of the business ana thc mmpleic security of the Company.
Experience, however, having satwi'aci inly demonstrated that these rates are exces
sive, what possible excuse can there LM ?- r inaint?iningthein ?
Availing themselves bf th is experience, Hie Directors and Managers of the Universal
Life Insurance Company, at its organization, adopted a scale of premiums in accor
dance therewith, ami winch has proved to be fair and adequate, and all that was
necessary to meet the twjmremi?nfe of the business. These premiums are about twenty
five per cent, lower than those charged by Mutual Companies.
lt also appeared; inasmuch as du: Tilths BO established'were as near as could possibly
be determined fair rates, hud not i:; excess of what Insurance has previously cost the
Policyholders in j\tulu(U Companies, that' ail>' profits arising from prudent manage

the following important advantages ;

about twenty lo thirty j:er cent, less than thal charged by Mutual Companies, and
which is equivalent to p yearly " dividend" paid in advance of that amount'on mutual
rates. This low cost of insurance is worthy of attention. Since its organization this
Company has received in premiums from its policyholders the sum of $1,517,000. To
effect the same amount o? insurance in a Mutual Company would have cost them an
initial outlay of $2,000,000. By allowing its policyholders to retain in their own pos
session this excess of $433,000, the Universal has virtually paid them a " dividend" of
one or more years. It
$483,000, and paid it, too, in advance, instead of at ?i? e:
is impossible to find any example of a Mutual Company furnishing insurance at so
Low a cost by returning'to its policyholders an equal amount upon similar receipts.
SKCoxn.' Participation in the legitimate pro/its of the Company, upon apian which
secures to thc policyholders the same treatment which Directors and Stockholders award
lo themselves. Tins"system of participation, bi connection with thc low " stock'' rates
of premium, must necessarilysecure to thc policy folder's every possible advantage to
be derived from prudent and careful management.
