The fifty-third annual statement of j
The Mutual Life Insurance Company

ing the operations Df the Company for |

their magnitude as to make it woriby
of the s pee ir. I consideration uot only
of those who are insured in this great
Company but of those who are inter

The results for 1803 show increased
security and permanent benefits to ev

These stupendous figures show toe
hold that the Company has upon the
confidence of the insuring public and
show that i* seeks, iii constantly in
creasing ratio, the benefits to be deriv

the greatest of all the companies.
The report for 1895 demonstrates the
increasing popularity of the Mutual

to hold its policies. The assets now
amount iii the aggregate to $221,213,

A Bold Robbery.
On Saturday night last Mr. J. M.
Eaves, our efficient depot agent, wa?
robbed of $100. Upon retiring, he
placed thia amount in his trunk, locked
it, and placet the key under his pillow.
Some JOJO during the night he was
awakened by a noise in his room. Jump
ing out of bed, he saw a fleeing form,
at. which he fired several shots, but
without bringing down the coon or ar
resting his flight. The next day ten dol
lars were found onJ the steps, dropped
by the thief.
On last Wednesday aoout 10 a. m., the
dwelling bouse of Mrs. Annie L. Hol
son, situated in north Edgefield, was
j discovered to bp on tire, having origi
I oared between the ceiling and roof.
Prompt, eiloris were made to ?ave the
house but al! in vain. Much of the
furniture, however was removed. There
was partial insurance, $490, through
the ageucy of D. R. Durisoe Esq., and
the loss bas been adjusted and will be
paid in foll without discount or abate
ment. The company carrying the ri-k
was the .old "diable "Pensylvania" of
Death of Mr, C. G. Ct*var.
In the dea.h of this citizen Port
Roy?? 1 loses a good man. Unobfrelive
and industrious, Mr. Covar had lived
among us for many years, ever si nee he
moved here (rom hi? old home in Edge
iield. At the time of his death, which
occurred on his farm near Port Royal,
Friday last, from pneumonia, he was
52 years of age, and leaves a widow and
several children to mourn his loss. De
ceased had been the watchman at the
Baldwin Fertilizer Works for years,
and was well thought of by his employ
ers. The remains were taken to Beau
fort Saturday, and, after funeral ser
vices by Rev. A. (J. Wilkins, were in
terred in the yard of the Beaufort
Baptist church.-Port Royal Post.
Badly Shot and Often.
Probably Capt. Tom C. Morgan, -,t
the Rehobo h section, has been wound
ed oftener than any^jtLer man in Edffe
fleld. ile is now sixr.y-four years of i
age and was in the Confederate war
from sti rt to finish. He was first se
verely wounded in the left arm; his
second wound was in the neck from
right to left; his ihiro wouud was in
the neck also, but from left, to right; in
these two neck wounds the last ball
came out of the same h.ule.that the first
one went in. The fourph wound was in
the hip and thigh. In J87G, during the
memorable Wallace House imbroglio,
be waa-acchlentiy.shot through both
legs by Bob Hammer d, of Edgefield
County, one knee-cap being shattered
and the leg shortened thereby. From
all these he recovered, although b:\dly
crippled, only to have n. tree fail ou bim
a few years later, which broke bis skull
and one arm. After he got well from
ail these things it would seem that be
ought to have had immunity from cas
ualties, but not so: the doctors got
hold of hun-they split open one of bis
ar.iis between the elbow and shoulder,
sawed out four inches of the bone and
sewed bim up again. This arm is con
sequently an almost useless appendage.
And yet Capt. Morgan is so modest a
man that although we have known bim
forty years we never knew of all these
honorable scars until quite recently.

The Board of Trustees have ap
propriated a considerable sum of
money for the puimose of purchas
ing a set. of new instruments for
the "Clemson Band." This Band
hus been organized only one year.
It has a roll of- eighteen members.
Of course it ia not e.^ual to "Sousa's
Band," yet whene\er it becomes
known that the "Clemson Band" is
going to play, people, old and

A DIFFERENT KIT OF FISH
?'Fly Not Yet" From the Demo
EDITOR ADVERTISER: Thus far
two candidates have announced
themselves for Governor. The
platform of OUR ?6: "I am opposed
to higher education for poor boys."
The platform of the other is: "I
ran once before and was defeated."
The people are not going wild over
either. These gentlemen have
brought themselves out, and it is
now time for the people to trot out
a dark horse. Who is the logical
candidate for Governor? The Alli
ance is responsible for the Issu?s
now before the people. The prin
ciples of the Alliance are about to
triumph in the coming fight. Be
sides, South Carolina is about to
???ave the Democratic party, and
will seek au alliance with the new
Silver partv of rue West. That
being the case, who is more com
petent ti lead the Democracy of
ibis State than Joseph L. Keitt, of
dewberry? He is president of the
Staff Alliance. He is avowedly in
favor of i he new alignment of par
ties. He is sound on the money
question. He is one of the purest, ?
ablest men ever reared within the ]
borders of the State. There ie but <
one thing in the wi.y of his being |
Governor- he is too modest toan- ;
nounce his candidacy. Buttha peo- j
pie of South Carolina should not (
let that be a hindrance. With one (
accord, they should, force him to (
the front, and insist upon his mak- ;
ing the race. Refora.ers should t
remember that we are in great dan
ger of losing all that we have (
fought for during these many years, i
Does it not behoove us, then. t3 see t
thal the next Governor of South 1,
Carolina shall be a mau of sterling
worth, a true Reformer and a pa
triotic citizen? Our slogan should
be, "measures, not men." There
fore, Joseph L. Keilt, State presi- ,
ideutof the Farmers Alliance is the
logical candidate for Governor. j
Force him to the front.
SOME SOLID STUFF ;
Evf ry teacher has in a greater or
less degree realized that some
change should be made in the
course of study commonly pursued
in our public schools. Arithmetic,
Grammar, and History are "chunk
ed" into the pupils, mind for eight
or ten years and then he is turned
loose on the world to exercise the
important functions of citizenship,
and also to bring up a family. He
may know the parts of speech in
grammar-how to pause an ordi
nary sentence, but his mind is un
steady as to the verb. He may
know enough arithmetic to work
simple interest, but this also will
be lost after a few years. He may
know that the United States has
been victorious in every war she
has waged, but for the life of him
he could not give you the basic
principles upon which our govern
ment is founded ; he is sublimely
oblivious of the great issues to
which different interpretatio ns of
the constitution have given rise.
In a word, his knowledge of gov
ernmental affairs is not gleaned
from, reading, but from hearsay
and from standing on the edge of
the miserable political mud-pud
dle which collects in the average
county campaign in the United
States every two years. That such
a person is unfitted for all th'
higher duties of a citizen and the
nobler offices of a man, needs no
It is our humble opinion that
our public schools pay too much
attention to Arithmetic, Grammar,
History, andGeoaphy and give no
time to practical lessons on the
sludy civics and the elements of
natural science. That a ki owiedge
of the fundamental principles ol
political economy should be in
stilled into the raiuds of our com
ing citizens, is a truism long since
But that a study of natural sci
ence will also serve as a mental
simulus in the public schools, is
by no means so generously conce
ded. Old fogies still hang for the
three R's, aud anything else, they
say, will bewilder the child's mind,
will be out of his reach. First th?
common and literary branches, and
then take on science as a sort ol
top-load. In answer to this we
would say that the truths of sci
ence are more easily comprehend
ed than a*.y of tho usual common
school studi s. When accompani
ed by experiment (as all success
ful science teaching is) nothing it
simpler or more beautiful than
this study. The l aue and curte ol
school life is this everlasting'learn
ing by note." Almost ali ile-obi ?(i
learns about Grammar, A nt li merit
and History, i-t ac Uir d in thu
way. Not to with science; every
thing illustrative ->r nature's great
laws can be made so simple, so
clear, so plain by expi-rim< ni thai
the ch'ld will never forget.
Even granting tint* some facts in
elementary scienc ?shoul i b . above
the comprehension of? the ordinary
child, even* these not. fully com
prehended things may, by their
very air of mystery, powerfully
impel th" child to renewed exer
tion?. And too, unlike the myste
ries of Grammar and Arithmetic,
which, by their barrenness do not
invite the pupil to seek further
the mysteries of science wear a
fresh and inviting look. Sir Wal
ter Scott nays: "Children derive
impulses rf a wonderful and im
portant kind from hearing things,
that they cannot entirely compre
hend." Huxley, one or ths great
est minds of the century used
these words: "Suppose ir were
certain that our li yes and fortunes
depended upon our winning or los
ing a game of chess. Don't you.
think we should consider it a pri
mary duty lo learn (lie names and
moves of the j^ees-s. Yet tho lives,
fortunes, and happiness of every
one, depend upon knowing some -
thing bf the rules of a game infin
itely more complicated than chees.
It is a game which has been play
ed from untold ages, every man
and woman of us being one of the
two players in a game cf his or her
own. The chessboard is the world,
the pieces aro the phenomena of
the universe, the rules of the game
are what we call the laws of na
ture. The player on the other side
is hidden from us. We know that
his play is always fair, just and
patient. But we also know to our
co it that he never overlooks a mis
take or makes the smallest allow
ance for ignorance. To the man
who plays weil the highest s'.akes
