NEGRO OUTRAGE ISGEORGIA.

eonnt of a fiendish outrags committed by ne
A - groe? in Georgia:
? It appears that on Thursday last, two re
I apectabh young girls residing near Station 14,
"upon the Central Hoad, were on their way
homo from school, wben they were overtaken
by two atout negroes, who immediately seized
them, and despite their screams for aid. com?
mitted a diabolical outrage. Haring effected
their brutal deed of violence, one of the ne
Stoes, who had bnt one arm, shook the rauti
ted stump of the other in the faoo ot the
eldest of the two Rina, and exclaimed : 'T j
want my revenge aud Tax bonud to hare
" it When I belonged to your father I ran
away, he followed me to the woods and shot
mA. and I had to loee thia arm; do you see it?
How Pm bound to get even with him. and
drawing his pocket knife, he severed her arm
entirely from ber body, between tho wrist aud
elbow joiut. Tbe two" scoundrels then broke
?"?away and rao for th) woods. Very fortunately
the gula had presence of mind enough to tie
the mutilated arm tightly above ute elbow
' nc til medical aid could be procured, and it ?
barely possible that the yoong- sufferer's life
may be spired.
Tho news of this deed of violence ran lise
wildfire alf through the neighborhood, and m
a ahort time a mounted patrol was organized,
who volunteered to go in pursuit of the scoun?
drels. They soon found one of them, whom
they questioned light sharply, but somehow

SOUTHERN LUE INSURANCE OOM
? .."?-. - . . . ?

if S1? [From the Atlanta ConeHrution.1
2b the Settlor of the Constitution: Ton have
generously tendered the nee of your columns,
that I may reply to a anal ic ions attack, made
by the Insurance Timos, ot New York, upon
an ' institution with which many honorable
gentlemen in this and other Southern States
Until suggested by friends not connected
with the Southern Life Insurance Company
-the institution assailed-I had not thought
lt necessary to reply, and for the foUowing J
Fn-st. Ail the agents of the Southern Life
had been directed'to use tbe article io question
ai the best canvass ng document with wbieh
they could be armed.
U In the next place, I had supposed that a
. journal which bad no regard for truth, and the
endorsement of which Is a matter of mere bar?
gain and sale, would produce no other effect
by ita attacks than the one realized, viz : tho
. strengthening ot the "Southern, Life."
I had supposed that no Sont hern man could
be influenced by the statements of a jauraal
which had published, as I had shown io a for?
mer card, twelve* wilful unmitigated fabc
hoods, in the short space ot sixteen hoes.
In the next place, it bad occurred to me,
that the very animus of this editor, which is
so patent, hw hatred of everything Southern,
his contemptible thrust at the incapacity of ?
the Sou tb ern people to manage hie insurance,
his meek suggestions in another article of the
same paper, that all Southern and Western
companies give op the business of life insur?
ance to the Morth, and his complaint of oar
elannhnesw, because, forsooth, we presumed
to retain Southern money in Southern States,
would have been a suaficient answer for every
For these reason s I thought it unnecessary
to write. At tbe suggestion ot friends, how?
ever, ? reply brierly.
11? Times evidences its ignorance of facts,
ar its total disregard of troth, or both, by its
reference to General Gordon F. Granger as
.gent for this company, lt- is, however, as
well support ed here as elsewhere in its article.
- General Granger has not now, nor never had,
any connection whatever with this company.
The Times says the losses of the boothera
life have been heavy, and compares it with
certain picked companies from the North.
The losses have peen heavy, bnt the busi?
ness has been heavy too. Ii a merchant does
- ons million of profitable business, does he not
expect greater loss rn bad debts, Ac, than
' another who does one-tenth of the business?
' Jin Lite Company insures 6000 lives, most it
' not have, of necessity, a larger number jf its
insured die,, than another which insures 500
The Southern Life lost more thao its picked
company-the Great Western-bat it did vast?
ly more business. Wby did not the editor of |
the Times give thc amonot of the business
done by each, the amount of loss by each, and
then d/aw the comparison? Does not the
merest child in figures understand this to be
the only way to get at the ratio of loss ? Yes;
bot it did not suit the purpose of the Times.
.Lei the tacts be known.
This picked company is shown bv the New
York reports of 1868 to have received $60,347,
Autd to have paid out the same year in cash,
ii 10417. Thus expending absolutely over 18000
more than it received. Wbde the Atlanta De?
partment ou gross premiums to the amount of
nearly $200,0-0, spent in losses and expanses
of every description on ly ,39 per cent, ot its re?
ceipt?, ?nd the whole company increased its
assets- in six months-over $126,000. | Besides,
the Times knows, as every insurance man doe J,
that losses equalize themselves io the course
of ye ara-so that tbe general average is pre?
served. This ia the foundation of all Ufe.
tablea. Aa iUontrative of this, the Atlanta De-*
ptrtment, in its immense business, receiving
nearlv one thousand applications, has sustain?
ed bot one loss-Amos E. Ward-for $10 000
sinoe its organization, and the other depart?
ments losing in bot little greater ratio. Her ce,
the heavy accumulation. Yet. in the estima?
tion of the Times, the Southern Life is un?
sound, and the Great Western perfectly good.
The animus of the article furnishes the solu?
tion. The one is Southern-t he otber Northern.
Again, this J tonest eheet, seeing the absurdi?
ty ot ita position, seeks to stab the Southern
Life by attackin* the integrity of its officers.
J,t says the statement of our assets is "cooked
Up"-that is, fited up to deceive- not true, in
otber words, the? officers of the company, in
swearing tome, statement of assets'and lia?
bilities, swore 'falsely-perjoed themselves.
Does he intimate that by any possibility the
officers ol his pet companies could "cook up"
statements? No. How is Uns? A pain, the
animus of his paper furnishes the reply. One
aet of officers are Soulhern-the otber North
' ".The Times says the Southern Life is
one on the high road to bankruptcy, but its
pete are alt sound. What do t he figures show?
That the 8antfaerd Life has $300 for every $100
of liability, while the largest companies ?D the
North have less than $150 of liability; yet, in
the'eetitnation of the limes, the Southern Lifo
is bankrupt, And his companies perfectly
sound.- How so ? Again, let the animus ol
that paper answer. The one is Southern-the
The gist ot tfie controversy is this-whether
officers of Southern companies swear falsely,
and officers cf Northern companies truthfully.
Whether the gentlemen whose reputations are
i den ti fled wiib this institution are to be be?
hoved, or the Tunes. Or, if outside testimo?
ny is preferred, the Times, or the Southern

The Atlanta ioAe%enoer aays: "-Thia com?
pany, we do not hesitate to say. is one of tbe
moot reliable aa well as successful in not only
the South, but the whole country."
The Constitution says: "By ita teiiabilily,
liberal features, audits patmtic object, it ia
acht eying a success unparalleled in the annals
of life insurance."1
The louisville Courier says: "TPWi ample
capital and Ltrge surplus, it at once guaran?
tees to policy-holders perfect security "and
urges Boat hem people to patronize it, because
it retains the money at home.
I might IUI whole columns with extracts
from leading journals in South Carolina and
elsewhere, but these m ty answer for an offset
tx the Times- possibly.
Tbe Tunea, however, char ?res that we pay
for these puffs 1 But is the Times paid for its
puff) ? Oh, no. These Journals can be bought;
the Times cannot. How is this? Plainly, the
answer must be-these are Southern, that
But I deny that one cent waa eyer paid for
any endorsements I have quoted. I did pa;
some of the Southern papers to insert a former
card in reference to this s .me card; others
would receive notbit g. I propose to conti au 3
to pay to get these facts before the people.
Tb i Southern Life ie able ti pa j ; it will make
money by spreading them before the country,
and it will continue to do it.
The Tunes will find, I imagine, that it bas
undertaken a difficult task in trying to teach
the people of these States that there are not
brains or integrity enough in tbe South to
manage life insurance; that the officers cf this
company, at Memphis, have swern falsely;
men whose high and responsible poeitioos as
railroad and bank presidents radicated the un?
limited confidence of the country in their com?
mon 8eose. integrity and financial ability. It
will not be easy to convince the South that the
long hst of Southern gentlemen connected with
this institution are engaged in a grand scheme
to defraud the widows and orphans of the
South; or that they will settle less fairly witb
policy-holders than companies from the Time?'
section-some of whom boast of accumulated
millions by tbe forfeiture of rebel policies
who bave one price for the North, another for
the South, and who have endeavored to pur?
chase tbe policies of rebel widows for a con?
temptible pittance of tbe sum insured.
He mistakes) the Southern people when he
supposes tbem so ignorant of life insurance
as to believe a company from tbe North, with
lees than $150 or assets to $100 of liability, is
stroogtr and safer than a Southern company,
which bas 1300 for every $100 or liability. Or
when be imagines tbe South so North-struck
as to believ?, because a company hails fiona
that section, it can pay ita president, as a sal?
ary, $25 000 ot the pol'cy-holder?' money, and
another offers agenta forty five per cent, com?
missions, and yet be more economically and
better managed than a Southern company
which pays its president-who in financial
ability is the peer of any-only $3000, and
its best agents less than one-half of the above
commission: or that a company from tho
North, which pays fifty to fifty-seven per cent,
to its stockholders, is better for tho insured
tban tbe Southern Life, which, notwithstand?
ing its rapid accumulations, his not paid one j
douhrAo ita stockhcMers. but has paid fort]/per j
cent to its policy-holders.
The Ka? hagan the war upon Southern in?
stitutions, and strikes the Southern Life only
because it is the pioneer. The success of this
company bas checked the drain of money from
our section, hence the limes' complaint ot sec?
tionalism. We make our bauble acknowledg?
ments of belog intensely sectional, if an honest
effect to retaiu Southern money at home be
In conclusion, I acknowledge my indebted?
ness to the Times tor the opportunity he bas
afforded for getting these tacts before the pei -
pie. The Southern Life invites its further at?
tacks. If tba solid assets of this company,
and its patriotic purposes, do not commend it
to the confidence and support of our people, it
will never ask the aid of the lurnea. If such
?beets can destroy tbe ?nfldence of the South
ern people in the directors and stockholder s of J
this company, then, indeed, have these gentle?
men lived to little purpose.

pEVKR A IV D AGUE,
?arva. FROM WBICH MANKIND SUFFER
H Bj over a large part of tbe globe, is tho .
^?L^A^T M consequence of a diseased action in
BJ"Ttbe system, induced bv the poison
B Bf ions miasm or vegetable di cay This
_JBa_ exhalation is evolved l y the action
M ~~ of solar heat on wet soil, and rises
W with the watery vapor fi om it.
While the sun is below the horizon this vapor
lingers near the earth's surface, and the virus .
is taken with it through the langs uro the blood.*
Tbere it acts ax an irritating poison on tbe
internal viscera and excreting organs of the body.
The liver becomes torpid and fails to secrete not
only this virus, but also the bile from the blood.
Both the virus and the bile accumulate in the circu?
lation, and produc? vio ent constitutional disorder.
Tbe spleen, the kroneys, and the stomach sympa?
thize with tbe liv, r. and become disordered also.
Finally, the instinct of our organism, as li m an at?
tempt* to expel tb?? noxious infusion, concentrates
the ?hole blood of the body in tbe internal excreto?
ries to force them to cast it out. The blood leaves
the surface, and rushes lo the central organs with
conrrestlve violence. This is the Chill But in this
effort it tails, 'ihcn the Fever follows, in which the
""blood leave? the central organs and rushes to the
surface, as it in another effort to expel the irritating
poison through that other great excretory-the skin.
In this also lt fails, and the system abandons Ute
attempt exhausted, and wjits tor ti e recovery of
btrcngth to repeat the hopeless effort another day.
These are' Ihe fits of paroxysms ot Fever auu Ague.
Such constitutional disorder will ot course under
mine the health if it ta not removed.
We have laoorcd to nnd, and have found an anti?
.Mt ICS AGL'K CURE.
tVblch neutralizes this malarious poison in the J
blood, and stimulates tbe liver to expel it from the ^
body. AM it should. >o it docs cure this afflicting I
disorder with perlect certainty. And it does more,
or rather does what is of more service to those sub?
ject to this infection. If taken in season lt expels
it from the svstem.as it is absoroed. and tuns keeps
those who use it tree I rom its attacks; keeps the sys?
tem in health although expo-ed to the disease. Con?
sequently it not only CUM S, but protects from, Uie
grent variety of aflcctiois which are induced by this
malignant Influence, such as Remittent Fever, Chill
Fever. Dumb, or Masked A gue, Periodical Headache,
or bilious Headache. Bilious Fever?, t-eunicia,
Rheumatism Gout. Blindness, Toothache, raracbe,
Catarrh. Asthma, Palpitations Painful Affections of
the ppleen, Hysterics, Colic, Paralysis, and ??intu?
Affect ons ' f the Stomach and Dowels, all of which,
when arising frtm this cause, will be found to as?
sume, more or lese, the intermittent type. This
"AGUE CUBE." removes the cause of these derange?
ments and cures the disease.
1 his it accomplishes by srimulatirg the excreto?
ries to expel the virus from the system; and those
organs by denr?es become habited lo do this, their
efflce. of their own accord. Hence arises what w*
term acclimatation. Time may accomplish the same
end, but ?lten Me is not long enough, or is sacrificed
in the attempt, while this ? Ague Cure" does it at
once, and with safety. We have great reason to be?
lieve ibis is a surer as well as safer remedy for the
whole class of diseases which are canst d by the mi- -,
asmatic iniectinu. tban any ether which has been
discovered; and it has eull another imp?t taut ad- J
vantage to the public, which is, that it is cheap as fj
well as good. .
