There is a farmer in Edgefield

The cases of the Farmers' Mu
tual Insurance Association of Ed
geflold count}-, S. C., brought by
Folk ct Folk, the attorneys of said
association, are now creating con
siderable attention not only in Sa
luda but throughout the State, not
only on account of the nice ques
tions involved, but also on account
of the number of oases and the
number of people involved.
The association had, at the time
it suspended operations, about four
hundred members scattered from
thc Saluda lo the Savannah and
from the Sand Hills on the Aiken
line to the Clay Hills on tho Ab
beville line of old Edgefield and
was until its suspension carrying
insurance at reasonable rales and
to the entire satisfaction of its
membership and is to-day, if prop
erly conducted, one of the best and
cheapest plans of fire insurance
known to the State. The feasibility
of the plan of Farmers' Mutual
Insurance Associations and their
successful operations . are evi
denced by the fact that similar or
ganizations are in the full tide of
successful operation in a great
many counties of this State, at the
present time, ind everjr session of
our State legislature adds county
after county to the column of
Farmers' Mutual Insurance Asso
ciations, and we predict that the
day is not far distant when the
whole State, by county organiza
tions, will .monopolize this class of
insurance in South Carolina, as
they reach a class of insurers and
take a class of risks almost aban
doned by the Old Line Companies
doing business in this State at
cheaper rales than now prevail for
such insurance in what is known
as the Old Line Companies. We
predict, further, (hat the day is not
far distant when the old tempor
arily suspended Farmers' Mutual
Insurance Association of Edgefie
county, S. C., will rise phonix-li
from its ashes and build upon t
the ruins of the old institution a
under the same old charter, an e
fief? of insurance that will be a p
tection to the farmer not qi
against Edgefield incendiary a
accidental fires, but a bulw;
against the encroachments f
exactions of old line companies
founded on Northern greed and
love of money which to-day have
left the homes of the solid yeo
manry of this country-the farm
ers-almost helpless and alono.
Although defunct, as it is called
by sorno writers in tho interest of
the parties in Saluda, who do not

sociation; although temporarily
suspended oil account of the fail
ure of the very men lo pay their
assessments who now fail to re
spond when equity and good con
science demand it ; ali hough mem
bers of said association have sus
tained bona fide losses as members
of said association relying upon
the gocd faith of its membership
to meet their assessments and aro
still unpaid, yet the old association
of Edgefield county, S. C., has not
lost its faith in its membership
holding as it does lo the good old
time agricultural, democratic alli
ance motto "equal rights . to all
and special privileges to none,"
and still believes that Ihey will
stand to the rack and pay their
pro rata parts of the losses its
members have sustained, however,
badly they may have thought and
still think the association was
managed. We are glad to say,
however, that Edgefield, that is
