1st. Insurance ai Stock Units* "bcir-^' iroui 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 will share
in the Profits o? the Company to the same extent as a Stock
holder-owning an equal amom.t 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 TE1JE FOLLOWING*
A lengthened experience has demonstrated that the rates of Premium ordinarily
charged by Life Insurance Companies are from twenty-five to thirty per cent, in excess
of what are necessary for a safe and legitimate conduct- of the business. In other
words, carefully anil prudently-managed Companies? charging ^Mutual" rates have
been able to return to their policyholders from 25 to 30 per cent, ol 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.
11 was thought, therefore,;. nore 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 some doubt, it was better to fix thc rate too
high than to incur the risk of making it too low ; because, in the former case, the error
could be easily remedied, at least in part, by returning to the policyholders, at certain
intervals, such portion of the premium charged as was found' unnecessary for. the
purposes of the business and the complote security of thc Company.
Experience, however, having satisfactorily demonstrated that these-Tates are excess
sive, what- possible excuse can there be fWr 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*bc 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 tb ose* charged by -Mutual Companies.
It also appeared, inasr .ucii as the rate.? so established were as near as could possibly
be determined fair rates, and not in excess of what Insurance has previously cost the
Policyholders in Mutual Companies, that any profits arising from prudent manage
ment justly and properly belonged to the stockholders of the Company, for the risk
incurred Cy them in truj^eri?kitig the Business.
Experience ha* shown that tin ie a:<- sounvs ol' profit in the; practice o? the business

premiums. Tl; ?? ri -.??'.- ?feorii fi guying in the mortal- of the members of a Com

Profits from these sources, in a Company possessed of a capital of ?200,001), and do
ing a fair amount of business, would give to tho stockholders dividends'largely iii o.\
cess of what were counted on by thc Directors of the Universal at the time of its
OTganizat?on: They have,; theretor&j oatWiunoa to ' divide ar??orjg fl:?.- policyholdiTs bl
Hie Company a large part of the profits accruing from tho sources name.!, ail of which
have heretofore been divided among thc stockholders.
The plan adopted for such division is as follows : Every person who may hereafter
insure with lie Universal w Al, for the purposes of division, be treated as a stockhol
der to the extent of one Annual Premium upon his Policy ; and will share in Ute profils
of the Company toprecise/y 'he soin?' extent as a Stockholder oxvimj an equal amount
of thc cap ital slock.
By this system of Insurance; original with the Uu'iccrsal, the policyholder secures
the following important advantages :
FIP.ST. Insurance ai Ike regular, '' Slock'' rates, requiring a primary outlay of
about twenty to thirty per cad. tess-than thal charged by Mutual Companies, and
which is equivalent to 3 yearly " dividend'' paid in advance of that amount on mu lui
rates. This low cost of insurance is worthy bf attention! Since its organization this
Company has received in premiums from its policyholders the sum of $1,517,000. To
eli'ect the same amount of insurance in a Mutual Company would have c-'st them an
initial outlay o? v2,?t'0.0UU. Dy allowing its policyholders to retain in their own pos
session this excess bfl^SoSjOOOl the Univ---ai has virtually paid them a "dividend ' ol
HS-3,000, and paid it, too, in advance, instead of at thc end of one or more years, lt
is 'inpossible i-o-find-anyexample-of a Mutual Company furnishing insurance at so
low a cost by returning lo its policyholders an equal amount upon similar receipt.
SECOND. Participa'ion in the legitimate profits of (he Company, upon a pian which
secures to the ])olicyholders the same treatment which Dirxtors and titockhohh rs a ward |
to themselves. This system of'participation, id connection with tho low " stock" rates
oi premium, must necessarily secure to the policyholders even* possible advantage to
be derived from prudent and careful managt mein.
The low rates of premium compclieconouiy, and, independent of participation,
guarantee to the policyholder his insurance at a rate which is nb) in excess of the cost
in well'managed mutual companies ; while* by-the proposed plaii of .participation in
what may be considered the legitimateprofits of the business, the cost will be still
Thus by the combined advai tagt s a rising from low stock rate and participation in

Over the Bars.
'Twas milking time, and tho cows came
From the meadows swcot with clover,
And stood in the la?e, while pretty Jane.
Had'a quiet chat with the drover
Such a quiet chat that it scarcely seemed
That a single worn was spoken ;
While a magie spell with thc night dews
. And the rythm' of song was unbroken
Thc cattle stood ut fco lover's sido,
Without any show ol' vexation,
As though impressed that a nvc bar rest
Was-a paff of their rest oration.
And as Jane listened to thc notes that
Right under the $ars and over,
Her heart-took wing, the silty thing,
And nestled up close to the drover.
Shc.heard him sayihis home was poor,
-That .he'd nothing but love to give
And she smiled content, as though
.Love had spent .
I Every arrow he Bad in his quiver ;
She smiled content, when the evening
air .7 :
With voiccfrof birds arc ringing,
And her lips confered that a lowly nest
! Should never prevent her singing.
So over.the bars the lovers lean,
In the joy of their sweet communion;
And their looks; declare that poverty
Shall be a bar to their union ;
0, sweetestmusic, go thread your rhymes
Now under the haas and. over !
Where p""Ctty Jane,"in the fragrant lane,
Bewitched the heart of the drover.
The Question of thc Over Issue of
As our readers may presume, [says tho
Colombia Phoenix] we have not the hon
or of Governor Scoffs confidence Nor
does the Phccnix iutervicw people whose
statements, airer; ?hoy are made, may
just as well bo defined false as true. As
his Excellency is now arraigned -before
thc bar of the public, and has boen pla
ced, by tho New .York World in thc
criminal's dock, it is proper that his da
fence be heard. The correspondent of |
tho Charleston Courier has interviewed
Gov. Scott. About the only practical
piece of information he gives, is that ar
rangements have b?eu made to take the
financial agency.of thc State from the
present agent and "place it in thc handsof
the Union Trust'; Company, of New
York. That Is, GOT. Scott ct Co. propose
to lock the stabio doors fter the horses
of tho State have ?cen stolen; and he,
porhaps, not theT^?st notorious in thc
band of the Radical olficials who have
grown fat and waxed saucy upon the
bleeding and mutilated body of pros
trate Carolina. Why, wc a.sk his Excel
lency, did you mako Kimpton your li
nancial agent in-New York, and place
millions of State sc.uriii-s in his un
known hands, without exacting even a
bond from him, such as an assistant
cashier gives in ono of our city banks?
Yon and your advisers, we say to his
Excellency, are responsible in law and
morals for all that the State of South
Carolina may lose from thc great conspi
racy- financial-whereby unknown mil
lions may perhaps have been added to
thc public debt o?jSoulh Carolina. Is it
.enc that ?ib'rpu/>rrvr~.\-<-TiITh iiiJB fcTflte
may now bo over ?20,000,000? If so,
can our poor and plundered people pay
$1,500,000 per annum interest on that
debi, and, besides that sum, the current
expenses of thc Government? Whither
are wc uri Ming? Whither sails thc ship
Ol* State? .'.ml what says tho Attorney
General of the State';' Have you no du
ties in this cris:? to discharge? rf thc
State luis been plundered-if tho treasu
ry has been invaded-as we know is the
case-is it not the duty of the Attorney
General to proceed against the plunder
ers? Where frauds were alleged in
New .York, Gov. Hoffman put his At
torney-General to-work. If Scott is no
Hoffman, is it also the eas-' that Cham
berlain is no Champlain? Wc said that
this man Kimpton would cost thc Slate
at least ?1,000,000.
Is it that our estimate was very mode
rate? It looks very much like it. Alas
for South Carolina,- when swindlers and
robbers prey upon her, and then ide
themselves under thc United States flag!
Scott oe Co. plunder, our people, and then
call upon Grant, and he puts them under
military rule !

A Horrible Crime.
From the Louisville Ledger.
Wc aro called upon to record another
of those horrible crimes that have of laic
become so frequent, and which shock by
their atrocity ali who hear them. On
Tuesday Highton the Turnpike between
New Albany and the Charlestown road,
a negro attempted to violate the daugh
ter of Mr. Amos Stacey a highly respec
ted citizen of Clark county, Indiana The
screams of the terrified girl, and her
struggles to free herself from the black
fiend who had seized her, were heard by
the family of Mr. Stacey, whose resi
dence was near by, and the father started
to the rescue of his child. But he had
proceeded but a short distance when he
fell dead from heart disease, brought on
by the startling danger and excitement
produced upon him by it
The would-be ravisher, in thc excite
ment that followed, succeeding in mak
ing his escape, and thc girl was saved.
Thc neighborhood was alarmed, and
search made in all directions for thc
black liend, but he succeeded in evading
pursuit, and got safely away. Tho en
tire neighborhood in which Mr. Stacey
resided is in an intense stale of excite
ment, and there ?snot the slightest doubt,
if thc negro is arrested, that ho will at
once be sining up to the nearest, tree,
without judge or jury. Mr. Staeoy was
a most excellent citizen, and his death
under such terrible circumstances has
raised the passions of the people in that
vicinity to the highest pitch, and ?twill
not bo safe for any negro who rnny be
found loafing around that vicinity for
sometime to cc mc.

LINCOLN'S EMANCIPATION PROCLA

thus refers to tho burning of tho eman
cipation of Lincoln :
It is announced that thc original copy
of Lincoln's proclamation, by which the
people of the South wore robbed of four
hundred millions of dollars worth ol
property, was consumed in the Chicago
lire. It is further stated that this pre
cious document cost the people of Chica
go twenty-five thousand dollars. Now
can any one tell how tho people of Chi
cago got possession of an original docu
ment, which belongs to the archives of
the Government, and who got the twen
tv-five thousand dollars ?
?&r The Macon (Ga.) Telegraph, under
the heading of " Grand Collapse of South
Carolina Carpet-Baggism in Wall street,''
says: " It will be seen hythe morning
dispatches that the carpet-bag plunder
ers of South Carolinaare in New York
endeavoring to cover up their tracks and
secure their plunder. According to thc
World, who has looked into tho matter,
over twenty millions of State bonds have
boen printed and fraudulently issued
fir tho negotiation of which thc Finan
cial Agent holds claims against tho State
to the amount of $4,000,000. Scott issues
a manifesto claiming that niue millions
of these bonds have never been signed
or issued ; but who cn believe a word of
what he says? We fear the old State is
gone up at last-a victim alike to Radical
fraud and tyranny. Tho best wo can
hope for is, that thc money loss will fall

Thc Ku-Klux business in South Caro

perous. Thc law is in the hands of
shirtless rascals who have passed from
their proper place, the gutter, to tho bench
by the aid ol' negro votes ; "loyal" vil

and if there is aught to be wondered at it
is that the number of outrages is not ten
fold greater than it is. Wo go agalpst

sincere in its professed wishes to re es
