The Yellow Fever On the Decrease.
Judging from what we glean from
the latest papers, and from trustworthy
private sources, we feel safe in saying
that the yellow fever in Charleston is
on the decrease. Indeed it has never
that is this season-amounted to any
thing very alarming, having appeared
only in one or two rather unclean locali
ties. The last papers report " no new
case within the last twenty-four hours."
?S*On Tuesday last a freedman by
the name of Barney Balentine delivered
himself up to Sheriff MCDEVITT, saying
that he had on that day shot another col
ored man by the name of Grant Bosey,
living on the plantation of Mr. JOHN
RAINSFORD. It appears that Barney was
of impression that Grant was a little too
intimate with Barney's wife; that Bar
ney had told Grant time and again to de
sist his assiduous attentions to Mrs. Bar
ney ; and that Grant would'nt desist,
and he, Barney, finally "went for him."
Grant is badly shot in the shoulder, and
may not recover.

^-The Chronicled- Sentinel, of ??Fri
day, says : " On yesterday Messrs. Branch,

bales of new cotton from one plantation.
They were grown by Mr. J. M. Turpin
on his plantation near this city. Mr. Tur

by Messrs. Branch, Sons <fcCo. for the
first five bales of new cotton from one

those who buve been favored by nature
with strong constitutions and vigorous
frames are apt to neglect the precautions
necessary to preserve these precious en
dovrmente. Indeed, as a rufe, tho more '
healthy and robust a man is, the more
liberties he is inclined to take with ins
own physique. It is some consolation to
the naturally weak and feeble to know
that they can be so invigorated and built
up, by a proper use of tho means which
science has placed at their disposal, aa to
have a much better chance ot long life,
and exemptions from disease and pain,
than the most athletic of their fellows
who are foolish enough to suppose them

It is not too much to say that more
than half the people of the civilized world
need an occasional tonic, to enable them
to support the strain upon their bodies

restless age occasions. Io fact, a pure,
wholesome, unexciting tonic is the grand
desideratum of the busy millions, and
they have the article in Tlostetter's Stom

systems and invigorates delicate consti
tutions. Its reputation and its sales have
steadily increased. Competitive pre

Thin hair is thick

hair where thc follicles are destroyed,
or the glands atrophied and decayed.
But such as remain can be saved for

of fouling the hair with a pasty sedi

Its occasional uso will prevent the hair
from turning gray or falling off, and
consequently prevent baldness. Free
from those deleterious substances which
make some preparations dangerous, and
injurious to the hair, the Vigor can
only benefit but not barm it. If wanted

Tbis Company Offers the Following Important.Advantages to thosi
About Effecting Insurance on their Lives :
1st. Insurance at Stock'Rates, being from 20 to 30 Pe]
Cent, less than the Rates charged by Mutual Companies.
2d. Each Policy-holder is regarded as a Stockholder to th<
extent of one Annual Premium on his Policy, and will shar<
in the Profits of the Company to the same extent as a Stock
holder owning an equal amount of the Capital Stock.
3d. Every Policy issued by the Company is nonforfeitable
and contains a Clause stating its exact Surrender Value.
BEFORE INSURING YOUR LIFE OR ACCEPTING THE AGENCY OF.AIT
READ THE FOLLOWING :
A lengthened experience has demonstrated that the rates of Premium ordinarily
charged Dy Life Insurance Companies are from twenty-five to thirty per cent? in exc?s
of what are necessary for a safe and legitimate conduct of the business. . In othe
words, carefully and prudently-managed Companies charging "Mutual" rates hav
been able to return to their policyholders from 25 to 30 per cent, of the amount charge*
When Life Insurance Companies were first organized, the reliability of tho dab
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 premium
which woula, in any event, meet all the presumed and unforeseen contingencies of th
As long as the matter was involved in some doubt, it was better to fix the rate toi
high than to incur the risk of making it too low ; because, in the former case, thc erro
could be easily remedied, at least in part, by returning to the policyholders, at certaii
intervals, such portion of the premium charged as was found unnecessary for th
purposes of the business and the complete security of the Company.
Experience, however, having satisfactorily demonstrated that these rates are exc?s
sive, what possible excuse can there be for maintaining them ?
Availing themselves of this experience, the Directors and Managers of the Universa
Lije Insurance Company, at its organization, adopted a scale of premiums in accor
dance therewith, and which has proved to be fair and adequate, and all that wa
necessary to meet the requirements of the business. These premiums are about twenty
five per cent, lower than those charged by Mutual Companies. . .
It also appeared, inasmuch as the rates so established were as near as could possibly
be determined fair rates, and not in excess of what Insurance has previously cost th"
Policyholders in Mutual Companies, that any profits arising from prudent manage
ment justly and properly belonged t? the stockholders of the Company, for the nsl
incurred by them in undertaking the business.
"'. Experience has shown that there are sources of profit in the practice of the busines
which theory will not admit of being considered as elements m the calculation of th
premiums. These results from a saving in the mortality of the members of a Oom
pany owing to the medical selection of good lives, a gain in interest on the investment
of the Company over that assumed in the calculation of its premiums, the profit
derivable from the lapsing and surrender of Policies by the members, and from othe
Profits from these sources, in a Company possessed of a capital of $200,000, and do
ing a fair amount of business, would give to the stockholders dividends largely in ex
cess of what were counted on by the Directors of the Universal at the time of it
organization. They have, therefore, determined to divide among the policyholders c
the Company a large part of the profits accruing from thc sources named, all of whicl
have heretofore been divided among the stockholders.
The plan adopted for such division is as follows : Every person who may hcreafte
insure with the Universal will, for the purposes of division, be treated as a stockhol
der to the extent of one Annu.al Pr mium upon his Policv ; and will share in the profit
of the Company to precisely the ernie exten t as a Stockliolder owing an equal amoun
of thc capital stock.
By this system of Insurance, original with the Universal, thc policynolder secure
the following important advantages :
FIRST. Insurance at thc regular " Slock" rates, requiring a primary outlay q
about twenty to thirty per cent, less (han (hat charqui- by Mutual Companies, am
which is equivalent to a yearly " dividend'' paid in advance of that amount on mutua
rates. This low cost of insurance is worthy of attention. Since its organization thi
Company has received in premiums from its policyholders tho sum of $1,517,000. Ti
effect the same amount ol' insurance in a Mutual Company would have cost them ai
initial outlay of $2,000.000. By allowing its policyholders to retain in their own pos
session this excess of $-iS3,000, the Universal has virtually paid thom a " dividend" o
..j;4S3,000. and paid it, toe. ia advance, instead of at the end of one or more years. I
is mipossible Jo find any example ol' a Mutual Company furnishing insurance at si
low a cost by returning to its policyholders an equal amount upon similar receipts.
SECOKP. Participation in Ihr. legitimate profits of the Company, upon apian wida
secures to the jw?cyhohlers the same treatment which Directors and Stockholders awart
to themselves. This system ol' participation, in connection with the low " stock" rate
of premium, must necessarily secure to the policyholders every ?'ossible advantage ti
be derived from prudent and careful management.
The low rates of premium compel economy, and, independent of participation
guarantee to thc policynolder his insurance at a rate which is not in excess of the cos
in well managed mutual companies ; while, by the proposed plan of participation ii
what mav be considered thc legitimate p>rofits of the business, the cost will be stil
Thus by the combined advantages arising from low stock rate and participation ii
thc profits it is confidently believed that thc UNIVERSAL LIFE INSURANCI
COMPANY offers insurance at its lowest practicable cost.
Those of the existing Policyholders who desire to participate in the Profit
under the new Plan can do so by making application to thc Head Office, or to any o
the Agents of the Company.
The Company is in a sound financial condition.
