Irl R. Hicks, the St. Louis weather
prophet, predicts a bloody revolution
in this country at an early date.
Mr. Hicks's weather prophecy for
February has been fulfilled with such
remarkable accuracy that we are
tempted to believe his revolution tale.
He predicted the cold wave and s' orrns
on the 5th, Cth, and 7tb, and that the
cold would continue in a modified de
gree up to ?o-day, Wednesday. Now,
for next week, he says the I7th and
18th will uring decided storm condi
tions, "with perhaps a sudden, sweep
ing cold wave," and "from about the
22nd to the 24th storms of dangerous
character will sweep through the con
tinent and a cold wave that may prove
a terror to man and beast." Watch
these three days, 22nd, 23rd, and 24th.
There are people in Edgefield who
can trace their lineage back to a very
remote period, in the face of which the
Daughters of the Revolution and the
Colonial Dames must pale their iue
fectual fires. We have among us a de
scendant of one of the signers of the
original Articles of Confederation.
Another, descendent from the Carrolls
of Carrollton, Maryland. Still anoth
er descended from a Colonel who serv
ed in the wars of Henry of Navarre. A
family whose great, great grandfather
was killed at the battle of Guilford C.
H. Another which traces its descent
back to an ancient Irish Duke. Not
a little Indian blood flows in the veins
of some of our people, and one indi
vidual looks back a century or two to
a Cherokee Indian Chief for his pro
Even the colored people, some of
them claim to be blue blooded. For
instance: Jack Sample goes back to
an ancestor, who was a cannibal king
of the Fejee Islands, his last bite hav
ing been a piece of one of Wash
Adams's baked grand daddies, for even
in those days the Samples were lean
and the Adamses fat.

PRIZES ON PATENTS.
How to Get $100 and Perhaps
Make a Fortune.
We secure l atents and ^o iuduce
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 mouth to the person who
submits to us the most meritorious
inventi >n during the preceding
month. We will also advertiso
the inventiou free of charge in the
"National Recorder," a wenkly
newspaper, published in Washing
ton, D. C., which has an extensive
circulation throughout the United
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 of money, and the complex,
ones aro 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 be 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
tb.9 application has been acted
upon by the Pat?nt 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.

throughout the different counties
of the State of Georgia, and the
State "being a very large one, con
taining 137 counties, have decided
to sell the remainder of my terri
tory at very low figures.
This plan of insurance ha9 been
operated in this (Edgefield) county
and throughout the Stute of South
Carolina uuder the name of "The
Farmers' Mutual Fire Association."
There is no change in the plan of
insurance only a Blight change in
the name. The price of couuties
range from $50 to $100 each, owing
to the size of the county aud the
number you buy. Now all I ask
isthat you find out from the treas
urer of j'our county association
how much insurance was written
up in this county and multiply
that by 50 cents per hundred (the
amouut the agent collects), aud
am sure you will be convinced tha
you cannot find a business that
will pay you near so well.
