On last Sunday morning we wen
visited by another blizzard, the sec.
ond of the season, and some say coldei
than th*; first. The thermometer fel.
to zero and maybe below, and milk
water, vegetables, meat, noses, ears
etc.. were all frozen solid. It came un
heralded by the weather bureau, too
and we are afraid the truck farmers
did not have sufficient notice to covet
their things-at any rate we did not
put shawls on our collards, and think
of suing the Bureau for damages.
The Cincinnati Enquirer tells this
story to prove that the instinct of self
preservation is stronger than reason :
"A man on a Lake Auron steamer had
the only specimen of black rattlesnake
I have ever met with. It was about
the size of an ordinary garter snake
andas vicious as Satan. It was con
fined in a strong box covered with
thick plate g'ass. When any one
would touch the glass with his finger
the snake would strike the underside
opposite the finger as quickly as a
stroke of lightning. The experiment
er would always jerk away as sudden
ly. There was not a man on board,
however muscular and free from nerv
ousness, who could keep his finger to
the glass when the snake would strike,
although knowing that it could not
possibly touch him. Strong men
would try it again and again, certain
?fl?-riieir..p.b,'Iit,y to endure the test, but
with the same result."
An old-fashioned sea story full of
interest and adventure, with a strong
love motive, is begun by W. Clark Rus

"Ouida" succeeds Froude, Goose, Lang,
and other distinguished writers with
an. instalment of the "Great Passions
of History" series, which has been ap
pearing in The Cosmopolitan. A dis
cussion is aroused by Mr. Edward
Bok's article on "The Young Man and
The Church," which will consume tons
of ink before it is settled. Just pre
ceding the famous Charcot's death he
prepared an article for The Cosmo
politan on Pasteur, to be published af
ter Pasteur's death. But Charcot has
died first, and so with the consent of
Charcot's executors, the article is giv

We call attention to the annual state

the condition of the bank of Edgefield
at the close of business on the 31st day
of December, 1894. The figures there
in are sufficient evidence of the wis
dom and coi servatism of the manage

vided profits; or in other words, divi
dends to the stockholders. Edgefield

Cheapest and Best.
The Lloyds are creating- quite a
racket in insurance circles in this
State. They have already forced the
old liue companies in Greenville and
other cities in South Carolina to re
duce their rates fifteen per cent, while
they, the Lloyds, are writing insu
rance for 10 per cent less than these
reduced rates-a gain of 2c "er cent.
All this talk about the LlOj not be

W. Mackay, is able to buy Edgefleld

The Tariff R?duction a Reality.
The Tariff reduction OD a great
many woollen goodd went into ef
fect the first of Januarj-, and we
propose to be up with the times,
and to give our friends the full
benefit of this reduction. We have
decided to sell our immense stock
of gents', boys', and children's
ready made clothing at a discount
of 20 per cent. These good's were
bought in September upon the
very best terms and marked in
plain figures at a low price, and
now you can get 20 per cert off
from the price. A suit that sold
for $15 will now be $12. A sui*,
that sold for $6 will now bo $4.80.
This is a very plain way for our
customers to see the tariff reduc
tion and we hope all will give us a
call at once.

PRIZES ON PATENTS
How to Get $100 and Perhaps
Make a Fortune.
We secure patents and to induce
people to keep track of their bright
ideas we offer a prize of one hun
dred dollars to be paid on the first
of every month to the person who
submits tous the most meritorious
inventi >n during the preceding]
month. We will alHO advertise
the invention free of charge iu the
"Natioual Recorder," a weakly
newspaper, published in Washing
ton, D. C., which has an extensive
circulation throughout the Unitpd
States and is devoted to the inter
ests of inventors.
NOT SO HARD AS IT SEEMS.
The idea of being able to invent
something strikes most people as
being very difficult; this delusion
the Company wishes to dispel. It
is the simple things and small in
ventions that make the greatest
amount ofraouey, and the complex
ones are seldom profitable. Al
most everybody, at some time or
another, conceives an idea, which,
if patented, would probably be
worth to him a fortune. Unfortu
nately such ideas are usually dis
missed without thought. The sim
ple inventions like the car window
which could bo easily slid up and
down without breaking the pas
senger's back, the sauce pan, the
collar button, the nut lock, the
bottle stopper, the snow shovel,
are things that almost everyone
sees some way of improving upon,
and it is these kind of inventions
that bring the greatest returns to
The prize we offer will be paid
at the end of each month, whether
the application has been acted
upon by the Pat9iit Office or not.
Every competitor must apply for
a patent on his invention through
us, and whether he secures the
prize or not, the inventor will have
a valuable present.
