Kates Soeu Effective
13y a recent net of the legislature 'he
South-Eastern Tariff Association was
allowed to operate in this State. Mr.
Jos. Rain?>, representing tho Associa
tion,-was here last week making a now
rating of the town and tho surround
ing territory. At the conclusion of his
wo-k Mr. Ralce called a mealing of all
tho loc*l agents of o'd lino companies
here In the parlors of the Ben-Delia
hotel on last Saturday morning, at
which meeting Dr. John A. Bark?d\le
was elected Prealdont and A. C. Todd
& Co , Secretary of the local board for
tho term of one yoar.
Tho new rating will go into offect as
soon as promulgated by the head ollico
of the Association at Atlanta. It Is un
derstood that tho rates on mercantile
nskB will bo pract'cally the fame, with
some changes. The new rating on
dwellings and couutry property will not
go into offect until the rate on property
in tho town is promulgated by the As
sociation.
The recent legislation of the legisla
ture in regard to lire insurance Is con
sidered by thoso interested in tho sub
ject throughout the State as one of the
wisest bills introduced at the past ses
sion as it will no doubt generally cause
* .eduction in the rates throughout the
Stato, putting this State on an equal
basis with the adjoining sta'o* as re
quired by tho Act.
The cow rates will be a matter of in
terest to property holders in the coun

Fl ROT USE OF TEA.
An A not vii ( LcrpimI Ascribes It to a
Wtnji. of CUillft.
By whom or when the use of teu for
drinking purposes was first discovered,
iu lost in antiquity. It Is spoken of ns
a famous herb Iii Chinese literature as
far buck as 'J.tXK) years B. Ct, at which
time Its cultivation and Classification
were almost an thorough and complete
ns they are today. One of tho ancient
legends says tlmt its virtues wero'ac
cidentally learned by King .Shen Nung
She, the Chlneso monarch who, Is also
known as "tho divine husbandman,"
who. the record says, flourished forty
centuries ago. He was engaged in,boil
ing water over a fire tnado of tbe
branches of the tea plant and carcless
ly allowed some of the leaves to -fal
Into tho pot
The liquid which he expected tocoine
from the vessel simply as" sterilised
water was miraculously ?onverted Into
an elixir of life by the accidental'ad
dition of the tea loaves. Boon after it
became highly esteemed in all tho ori
ental el ties and was used na a royal
gVft from the Chinese nionorchs to the
potentates of southern and western
Asia.
This same King Shen N\iug Sho not
only earned the title of respect of
which be was known through the 4Ufh
covery of the virtues of tea, but too
