Dark Tales Concerning the County
There is a pubRo matter on hand that
ought to be seen into-and that quickly.
This mailer concerns the taxpayers' of
Edgefiel I County. Over on the Western
side of the County there are three bridges
to be built; one over Turkey Creek at
Low's Ford, near Dun ton s ville; one
over Buekhalter's Spring Branch, in the
a?irne section; and one over Stevens' Creek
at Rogue Shoals. Now the tale goes
(and willi extreme plausibility on its
face) tba'; certain highly respectable and
responsible citizens, among them two
old and experienced bridge-builders,
sent in bids to the Commissioners offer
ing to build all three of these bridges for
$4300, but that instead of closing with
these bids, the Commissioners have giv
en the job to certain other parties whose
bid is from $7100 to $8000. The parties of
the $4300 bad are Democrats ; Those of
, the big jlgwrea are Republicans : This is
the body of the tale ; the offshoots are
We do not hesitate to say that we fear
the taxpayers of our County are about to
be again outrageously swindled.
' On Sale-day next, in all probability,
there willi be a Railroad meeting at this
place. And at the same time let the tax
payers, through a Committee appoint
ed for the purpose, look narrowly into
this Bridge business. If things should
prove to be as common report says, then
let the County Treasurer be enjoined
from paying ont the public funds for
any such swindling operations. With
many others, we are determined not to
let this matter rest here.
Near Woodlawn, on the Savannah
River side of this District, a few days
ago, a colored man named Joseph Kent
robbed the house of Mrs. PEGGY JONES,
a widow lady, of about $230 in cash and
several other valuable articles. The rob
bery was committed during the tempora
ry absence o<" Mrs. JONES. The thief, it is
expected, went to Augusta with his booty,
and the authorities are on the lookout for
$3* Rov. T. S. BOINEST, a prominent
Lutheran Minister, died at his residence
at Potnaria, Newberry County, on the 3rd
inst., in the 45th year of his age.

been arrested in Anderson for insulting
lat", .es on the street.
g?r The Greenville Mountaineer chron
icles the death of Dr. James Harrison, a
prominent physician of that County.
?S3~ From the returns made to the
State Auditor's office, it appears there is
about $21,000 deficit in the Abbeville
County Treasury to be accounted for.
jZ39- Dexter will have to throw up his
honors. The Goldsmith Maid trotted her
mile at Milwaukio, on Thursday, in two
minutes and seventeen seconds, which
is, we believe, a half second better time
than was ever made by Dexter, the track,
too, according to exact measurement, be
ing sixty-nine feet over a mile. Now,
what will Bonner do ? He must buy the
Goldsmith Maid, or beat her.
JST- A hurricane occurred on tho 21st
ult., on Ortigua Island, Jamaica, by
which every estate was damaged. The.
loss is immense. Five churches were
prostrated. In Tatala Island 800 houses
and forty estates were destroyed. In St.

The Late Thomas R. Waring.
It is with great regret (says the Char
leston Cour er, of the 7th,) we announce
the decease, yesterday, of this must esti
mable citizen and gentleman. Mr. War
ing was largely and influentially connect
ed. He bas been taken away in the very
prime of a useful life, all tho duties of
which ho has discharged with singular
fidelity, and which procured him the
esteem sud consideration of the entire
community. Mr. Waring was well
known lor years as the Cashier of the
Bank ol' the State. When this bank
ceased itu operations, his valuable servi
ces were immediately claimed as Cashier
of the Smth Carolina Loan and Trust
Company. Of the highest integrity, and
of large ?nancial ability, he was equally
esteemed in all tho relations of lifo, and
his death is a matter of common loss and
universal regret. We extend to his fami

NEGRO PHILANTHROPY.-On Tuesday
afternoon assistance was asked of the
Howard Association for a colored woman
and her sick child, who had been taken
with the fever and were lying in a house
in Church street. At the office of the
association there were several colored nur
ses who had tendered their services (to be ,
paid for) to the association, and one of j
these was dispatched to the house. Upon
finding that the sick persons were of lier j
own color, the nurse returned in disgust,
saying " ?he was hired to attend white
people and not niggers," and could not be
induced to wait on the sufferers. The j
other colored nurses made the same point.
At length one of the directors of the as
sociation was sent down, who instructed
the sick vornan to. hire any nurse she
knew of, at tht expense of the association.
But we believe that one of the regular
nurses afterward changed her mind. We
may mention, in this connection, that the
association, like true charity, knows no
distinction of race or condition.-Charles
TAKING THE VEIL.-The Savannah ?
Advertiser says that the Chapel of thc ]
Sisters of Mercy, in that eily, was crowded
Monday morning by a large assemblage,
drawn thither to witness the touching
ceremony of taking the white veil by four
young ladies, former pupils of the sisters,
who graduated at tue last term. The
postulants, who were handsomely attired
in their snow-white robes, were Misses
Agnes Brown, Ella Kennedy and Agnes
McMahon, of Savannah, and MissBioder
ick of Augusta. At the same time two
novices were made full sisters, viz : Miss
Mary Enright, in religion Sister Mary
Augustin, and Miss Mary O'Connor, in
religion Sister Mary Gonzaga. The pos
tulants, after the delivery o?a very ap
propriate sermon by Father Patrick, re
ceived communion and read out their vows
of postacy, charity and obedience. After
mass the veils and caps were received at
the hands of the officiating clergyman,
Father Patrick, assisted by Mother Vero
nica and Sister Celia. The entire cere
mony occupied over two hours and a half.

LEWIS JONES WITH JENNINGS
SMITH cfc CO :-Jennings, Smith cfc Co.
are still conducting the business of Cot
ton Factors and Commission Merchants,
and Capt. Lewis Jones is their right-hand
man in Edgefield. They have no right
to complain of transactions, for fair deal
ing, prompt attention to business, and
personal popularity, have long ago secur

run of business. See their new card in
BEALL, SPEARS <fc CO :-Beall, Spears
cfc Co. have been engaged in the Cotton
and Commission business in Augusta for
many years, and their brilliant and
steady-going success is to be attributed
to the promptness and energy always dis
played in attention to business. They
are honorable and courteous gentlemen,
and long experience makes them very
dersirable merchants to deal with. Cot
ton planters will do well to consult the
new advertisement of Beall, Spears cfc

Locomotive is the "MikeO'Dowd"! And
it is bearing down upon you with a train
three miles long, loaded with Family Grc

South Carolina. The Schedule of the
"Mike" is published at large in this
week's Advertiser. It is in chapters.
Study each one carefully.
W. A. RAMSAY.-W. A. Ramsay is
an old and firmly established dealer in
every character of Ready-made Clothing
and Gentlemens' Furnishing Goods. His
present stock is very heavy, and com
plete in every particular. For many a
long year, Mr. Ramsay has had the res
pect and confidence of the masses. Con
sult his new card. .
AND NOW FRIENDS, WE SMILE
AND SCRATCH OUR HEAD .--For we
have come to James A Gray & Co. And
verily we can say nothing new of them !
Their advertisement is a permanent fix
ture in the columns of the Advertiser,
and they themselves are permanent fix
tures in the hearts of the people of Edge
field. They have laid in an extraordina
j rily heavy Stock of Fall and Winter Dry
! Goods, and are now prepared to serve
you at their counters, or to fill your or

courteous gentlemen as of yore, and
fully deserve the universal respect and

So Edgefield gentlemen, old and young,
but young more particularly, if j'ou wish
to bc well dressed-and it is a highly im
portant aud highly desirable end to at
tain-go this fall to August Dorr in Au.

character, he is a polished, generous,
kindly gentleman. We beg for his new
I Fall and Winteradvertisemeut very spe

! THE MULLARK Y BROTHERS.- We
we will not be so absurd as to tell Edge
field people who the Mullarky Brothers
are. Wo will only remind them (;md
even that is unnecessary) that these same
Mullarky Brothers are still flinging their
Dry-goods banner to tho breeze-a ban
ner that has long waved in honor, and in
triumph. And long may it wave, say
we ! Elsewhere in to-day's paper, the
Mullarky Brothers speak for themselves.
Give them due heed.
BRANCH, SONS cfc CO.-Branch, Sons
cfc Co. ought to be by this time (if they
are not) known to every planter and bu
siness man in Edgefield District, for
they are as prompt and reliable as any
mon on record, and thoroughly conver
sant with all tho requirements of the
Cotton and Commission business. We
can safely and strongly recommend
them to our people. Give thom a trial,
and give their new card special attention.
BAKER cfc ANSLEY:-Baker cfc Ans
ley are successors to Baker, MillorctCo.,
who were known far and near as popular
dealers in Groceries. They had many
customors in this rogionof country ; and
all thesa, when they go to Augusta, can
repair to the same old place and liner the
same old advantages and accommoda
tions. Baker ct Ansley tell in another
column what they sell and what they do.
BENNETT cfc THURMOND.-Bennett
ifc Thurmond are eminently safe and relia
ble Grocers and Commission Merchants,
and, during a long business career, have
invariably given entire satisfaction to
thousands of patrons. They are among
the most laborious Grocery men in Au
gusta, their wholo time being devoted
to their business. Bennett cfc Thurmond
are a strong Grocery House, and we
would advise our friends to always give
them a trial. Do not overlook their at
tractive advertisement this week.
Is a blessing vouchsafed to few. Even
those who have been favored by nature
with strong constitutions and vigorous
frames are apt to neglect the precautions
necessary to preserve these precious en
dowments. Indeed, as a rule, the more
healthy and robust a man is, tho more
liberties he is inclined to take with his
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, as to
have a much better chance of long life,
and exemptions from disease and pain,
than the most athletic of their fellows
who are foolish enough to suppose them
selves invulnerable, and act accordingly.
It is not too much to say that more
than half tho people of the civilized world
need an occasional tonic, to enable them
to support.lhe strain upon their bodies
and minds, which tho fast life of this
restless age occasions. In fact, a pure,
wholesome, unexciting tonic is the grand
desideratum of the busy millions, and
they have thc articlo in Hostetter's Stom
ach Bitters. It is a stamina! medicine, i.
e. it imparts permanent strength to weak
systems and invigorates delicate consti
tutions. Its reputation and its sales have
steadilv increased. Competitive pre
prepatfons have been introduced ad
libitum, and, as far as the public is con
cerned, ad nauseam, in the hope of rival
ing it ; but they have all either porished
in the attempt, or been left far in tho
rear. It has been the great medical suc
cess of the present century, and it is quito
certain that no proprietary medicine in
this country is as widely known, or as
Ten lightning presses, running inces
santly (Sundays excepted,) the whole
year through, barely supply the demand
for the Illustrated Almanac", in which the
nat u re and. uses of tho preparation are

IMPORTANT TO BUILDERS AND CON
TRACTO as.-We learn from our Charles
ton exchanges that Mr. P. P. TOALE, the
well-known manufacturer of Doors, Sash
es, Blinds, etc., has established a depot at
No. Hayne street, where he keeps con
sUitttly on hand not only all articles from
his own manufactory, but also every va

everything necessary to tinten handsome^

This Company Offers the Following Important Advantages to those
About Effecting Insurance on their Lives:
1st. Insurance at Stock Rates, being from 20 to 30 Per
Cent, less than the Rates charged by Mutual Companies.
2d. Each Policy-holder is regarded as a Stockholder to the
extent of one Annual Premium on his Policy, and Till share
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 non-forfeitable,
and contains a Clause stating its exact Surrender Value.
BEFORE INSURING YOUR LIFE OR ACCEPTING /THE AGENCY OF ANY
READ THE FOLLOWING :
A lengthened experience has demonstrated that thc rates of Piemium ordinarily
charged hy Life Insurance Companies arc from twenty-five to thirty per cent, in excess
of what are necessary for a sate and legitimate conduct of the business. In other
words, carefully and prudentlv-nianagcd 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 thc test "of exp?rience.
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 of the
As long as the matter was involved in sonic doubt, it was better to fix the rate too
high than to incur thc risk of making\t too low ; because, in thc former case, the error
could be easily remedied, at least in part, by returning to thc policyholders, at certain
intervals, such portiou of thc premium charged as was found unnecessary for the
purposes of the business and the complete security of the Company.
Experience, however, having satisfactorily demonstrated that these rates are exces
sive, what possible excuse can there be for maintaining them ?
Availing themselves of this experience, thc Directors and Managers of the Universal
Life 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 was
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 os could possibly
be determined fair rates, and not in excess of what Insurance has previously cost the
Policyholders in Mutual Compapiea, that any 'profits arising from prudent manage
ment, justly and properly belonged to the stockholders of the Company, for the risk
incurred by them in undertaking the business.
""Experience has shown that there are sources of profit in the practice of the business
which theory will not admit of being considered as eleme^ 's in the calculation of the
premiums. These results from a saving in the mortality of the members of a Com
pany owing to the medical selection of good lives, a gain in interest on the investments
of the Company over that assumed in the calculation of its premiums, the profits
derivable from the lapsing and surrender of Policies by the members, and from other
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 thepirectors of the Universal at the timi of its
organization. They haye, therefore, determined to divide' among the policyholders of
the Company a large part of the profits accruing from the sources named, all of which
have heretofore been divided among the stockholders.
The plan adopted for such division ?3 aa follows : Every person who may hereafter
insure with the Universal will, for the purposes of division, be treated as a stockhol
der to thc extent of one Annual Premium upon his Policy ; and witt share inlhe profits
of the Company to precisely the same extent as a Stockholder owing an equal amount
of the capital stock.
By this system of Insurance, original with the Universal, the policyholder secures
the following important advantages :
FIRST. Insurance at the regular " Stock" rates, requiring a primary outlay of
about twenty to thirty per cent, less than that charged by Mutual Oompanies, and
which is equivalent to a yearly " dividend" paid in advance of that amount ta mutual
rates. This low cost of insurance is worthy of attention. Since its orcanijation this
Company has received in premiums from its policyholders the sum of $1,517,000. To
effect the same amount of 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 $483,000, the Universal has virtually paid them a " di?dend of
$483,000, and paid it, too, in advanoe, instead of at the ena of one or moreyears. It
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.
SECOND, participation in the legitimate profits of the Company, upon arlan which
secures to the policyholders the same treatment which Directors and Stockho&rs award
tc themselves. This system of participation, in connection with the low " sbek" rates
of premium, must necessarily secure lo Hie policyholders every possible adrantage to
be derived from prudent and careful management.
The low rates of premium compel economy, and, independent of participation,
guarantee to the policyholder his insurance at a rate which is not in excess pf the cost
m well managed mutual companies ; while, by the proposed plan of partiopation in
what may be considered the legitimate profits of the business, the cost wjf be still
Thus by the combined advantages arising from low stock rate and partitipation in
thc profits it is confidently believed that the UNIVERSAL LIFE INSURANCE
COMPANY offers insurance at its lowest practicable cost.
Those of the existing Policyholders who desire to participate in |he Profits
under the new Plan can do so by making application to the Head Office, 0) to any of
the Agents of the Company.
The Company is in a sound financial condition.
