Mr. Stutts of Kingstree Robbed.
A daring and mysterious robbery oc
cr.rred in Kingstree last Friday night. Mr.
R. R. Stutts, the dispenser at that place,
was robbed between the hours of 12 o'clock
midnight and dayiight of $195 in cash, and
a check for $22 on i-n Atlanta bank. Also
his double-b-rd! shot gun. wateh and
chain, his hat, five cigars and two 1-cent
.%r. Stutts attended a meeting of the NIa
sonic lodge Friday night and got home a
little before midnight. ie is positive that
he had the money when he went to bed,
and he is equally positive that lte put his
vest under his pillow just before retiring;
and here comes the mysterious part-how
the burglar succeeded in opening the win
dow and entering the room without
awakening the occupants, consisting of
Mr. Stutts, his wife and two children; Mr.
Newman, a miail contractor, sleeping in an
adjoining room. Mr. Stutts thinks he and
his wife must have been chloroformed. as
they both slept late the next morning and
felt queer and somewhat stupefied upon
being roused from their slumbers. There
was a lamp burning where Mr. Stutts and
family were sleeping when the robbery
took place. Mr. Stutts has no special rea
son for suspecting any one, and it can
scarcely be said that any clue exists to the
This robbery of Mr. Stntts is all the more
unfortunate, as the greater part of the
moner stolen from him belonged to the
State Dispensary, and it will be very hard
on Mr. Stutts to have it to pay back. The
Dispensary at Kingstree seems to be un
fortunate, as about two years ago Mr. Mc
Donald lost his position as dispenser by
sending money through H. 0. Snow, whose
checks proved not to be worth the paper
they were written on.
Mr. Stutts is looked upon as a straight
forward and honest man, and has given
very good satisfaction in his capacity as
dispenser, and friends generally will regret
to hear of his misfortune in having the
money stolen from him.
This is the second robbery that has oc
cnrred in Kingstree recently. Te door
to the safe in the express ofilee was blown
off some weeks since, but fortunately the
robbers were frightened away.

REPORTI OF THE MUTUAL LIFE.
The continuous magnificent growth of
the Mutual Life Insurance Company. of
New York has for many decades been a
source of pride to its many policy holders
and of wonder to those interested in social
economics throughout the civilized world.
In many respects the Mutual Life stands
alone as to its position. There is nothing
like it- Its annual report of business for
the year enditig December 31. 18903, the full
details of which are now in the hands of
Ithe New York State Insurance Departmuent,
Ishows that the company possesses net
assets aggregating S234,744,148.42. The
books of the company indicate accordin

much larger sum than that, but this yeai

-requirements of the State Department.
which exclude. assets that are not realized1
upon, but which are proper to regard as
-ultimately good and available. The liabil
ities on tihe risks in force amount to $211.,
010,633.72, leaving a surplus fund of $29,
73,514.70. This shows an increase in -
mitted assets during 1b690, according to the
New York State standard, of S15.040,0U5 22,
-and an increase in surplus of $2,853.467 UG.
T he total income of the campany for the

It Pays to Advertise.
We want our readers to look over our
atdvertisint- colunns and reieibe r it is to
those moerchanlts that the public ean thank
for a newspaper being published in their
commuunitv. The subscription list, of
course heils, but the main dependence of
a news'aper cones from mercLants who
have enterprise enough to cater to the pub.
lic for the cash trade. Any nuin with goois
on h shees can sell them on cred:t
and can ctmmiand such prices as justiti. s
the risks lie takes. but the mierchant who
endeavors to sell goods for the cash must
reeet competition fairly and squarely. It
is therefore safe to conclude that the ad
vertising merchant has bought his goods to
sell for the cash and there is the place to
buy and save monev. Some merchants will
try to convince the buyer that instead of
giving the paper pay for advertising, the
customer gets it in the decreased price of
the goods, but that old yarn has become
hackneyed and the people have learned
better. They tind the more public spirited
a merchant is, the more he caters for trade
and the more anxious is he to outstrip his
competitors: just lo k in the stores that
advertise their wares and those that don't
