The Day Dawneth.
by mrs. elizabeth oakes smith.
tip to the mountains of our God
Ol? 1 weary pilgriln hie;
With broken Btafl'y and feet unBhod,
And half despairing cry.
Ye only mark the uplifted rod.
Ye only yield the aigh?
Oh! faint of heart! lift up your eye?,
Behold how breaks the day I
Oh I deafoned years! along the skies
The |oyous tabrets play;
Awake, ye feeble souls urine;
The Master calls away.
Stoop down, dear I^ord! speak very low,
Lest we, amid the noise
Of maddening sin nnd weary woe,
May hardly dare rejoice}
May fail thy dulcet notes to know,
Nor hear thy loving voice.
Oh! foot-sore pilgrims! heed ye not
The flinty path ye tread;
The Muster's feet the path have wrought,
The night duwn wet his head;
Your sorrowing tears aie not forgot
For He the like hath shed.
Oh! feeble soul! depressed by fetfr,
Behold how breakH the light;
Trust the dear Lord, and ye shall hear
The f? Ag? he gives at night;
Though hang tho dark clouds ovor near,
The lining still is bright.
FARM AND GARDEN
Ginger Snaps.?Beat togethef half a?
pound of butter,. andT half a pound of
sugar; mix with them half a pint of mo
lasses, half n cu^ftil of ginger, and Ott?
pound and a half of flour.
To keep Crows from Corn.?Take a
quart of train oil, and as much turpen
tine and bruised gunpowder boil them
together, and*,, when hot, dip pieces of rags
hi the mixture, aud? fix- them on. sticks in
the field. About four i*re sufficient for
an acre of corn.
Seeds of plauts mny lie preserved, for
rttany months at least, by causing them
to bo packed, either in husks, pods, &c.j
in absorbent paper, with raisins or brown
moist sugaror, a good wa>v practised
by gardeners, is to wrap tho seed in
brown paper or cartridge paper, pasted
down, and then varnished over.
"Whatever may be the nature of the
soil, or of the crop cultivated, it should
always be the aim of the farmer to grow
full crops. Partial and sometimes ex
tensive failures will even then but too
often'oCCUr*;' but to' neglect making the
best known preparations,-or only to pre
pare for half a crop, has a direct ten
dency to unprofitable farming.
Proper Soil, for the Culture of
Turnips.?Sandy loams, in'good heart,,
are most favorable to their growth,
though they will thrive well on strong
loams, if they aro not wot; but, on clay
ey,.thin, or wet soils, thoy are not' \v"orth
cultivating; for, though a good crop may
be raised on such ground, when well pre
pared ind dunged, in poaching the soil,
tliau the value of the crop will repay.
lTyou have occasion to transplant in
the summer season, let it be in the even
ing after the heat is past; plant
and water the' same immediately,
nnd there will be no danger from the
heat next day; but be careful, in digg
ing up the earth, you do not break any
of the youug-shoots, us the sap will ex
ude out of the same to the great danger
of the plants.
Tomato Catsup.?To one gallon of
skinned tomatoes, add four table spoon
flils of salt; four table-spoonfuls of
black pepper, ground line; half a
table spoonful of allspice, ground
fine ; three table spoonfuls of mustard ;
eight pods of red pepper. Simmer it slow
ly iu sharp vinegar, in a pewter vessel,
three or four hours;: then strain it
through a wire sieve, and bottle it up.
When cold',.seal-up the corks, nnd it will
last for years.

The Better Policy.?If any "person
would like to see demonstrated the ad
vantages of raising corn, wheat, oats, &c,
instead of cotton, he may find it in tho
condition arid results of a farm where it it
done/ We have marked it in several ad
vantages, in the long run, or any run of
twelve months, of grain crops over cotton.
As clear a case as we have seen for several
years is that of James F. Riley, of Upper
St. Matthew's, on the South Carolina
Railroad. He has about 100 acres of
promising wl.e.itjand oats, bes'des corn
and other kindred plantings, with stock
around him, all in keeping with a grain
! kingdom. We say and pray that our
farmers would raise provisions first, and
in full, and then something more of the
same sort > for the cotton men will want
it, and unless they are lucky and liberal,
their stock will suffer for it.?Christian

READ THE FOLLOWING s
A lengthened experience has demonstrated that the rates of Premium ordinarily charged by
Life Insurance Companies are from twenty-live to thirty per cent, in excess of what arc riecest?ry
for a safe and legitimate conduct of tiic business. In other words, carclully and prudently maii
aged Companies charging "Mutual" nates have been able to return to thiir policy-holders ??in
2? to 30 per cent, of the amount charged for premiums.
When Life Insurance Comparies were first organized, the reliability of the data upon whb*h
the premiums were constructed had not undergone the test of experierce. It was thought, there
fore, no more than common prudence to adopt a scale of premiums which would, in any event,
meet nil the presumed ami unforsccn contingencies of the business.
As long as the matter was involved in some doubt, it was better to fix the rate too high than to
incur the rick of making it too low; because, in the former case, the error could be easily reme
died, at least in part, by returning to the policy-holders, at certain intervals, such portions of the
premium charged as was found unnecessary for the purposes of the business and the complete
security of the Company.
Experience, however, having satisfactorily demonstrated that these rates aro excessive, what
possible excuse can there lie for mnintaining them?
Avuili'ng themselves of thin experience, the Directors and Manngen of the Uuirerml I.ifc In
surance Company at its organization, adopted a scab: of premiums in accordanee therewith, and
which has proved to be fair and adequate, and all that was necessary to meet the requirements of
the business. These premiums are about twenty-five per cent, lower than those charged by Mu
It also appeared, inasmuch ns the rates so established were as nenr as could possibly be deter
mined fair rates, and not iu excess of what Insurince has previously cost the policy-holders in
Mutual Companies, that any profits arising from prudent management justly and properly be
longed to the stockholders of Ute Company, for die risk incurred by them in undertaking the
Experience has shown that there are rourcea of profit in the practice of the business which
tkcory will not admit of being considered as elements in the calculation of the premiums. These
result fron? a saving in the mortality of '.he members of a Company owing to the medical selec
tion of good lives, again in interest on the investments of the Company over that assumed in
the calculation of its premiums, the profits derivable from the lapsing nnd surrender of Politic*
by the members, and from other minor sources.
Profits from these sources, in a company possessed of a capital of $200,000, and doing a fair
amount of business, would give to the stockholders dividends largely in excess of what were
counted on by the Directors of the Universal it the time of it? organization. They have, the re
fore, determined to divide among the policy-holders of the Company a large part of the profits
neertung from the sources named, all of which have heretofore been divided among the stock
The plan adepted for such dividends is a? follows: Every person who may hereafter issuro
with the Universal will, for the purpose of division, he treated as a stockholder to the extent of
one Annual Premium upon his Policy ; and will share in the profits of the Company to precisely the
same ejetent us a Stockholder owing on equal amount of the capital stock:
Hy this system of Insurance, original with the Universal, the policy-holder secures the follow
ing important advantages:
FniST. Insurance at the regular "Stork'* rates, requiring a primary outlay of about twenty
to thirty per cent, less than that charged by Mutual Oompanie?, and which is equivalent to a
yearly "dividend" paid in advance of that amount on mutual rates. This low cost of insurance
is worthy of attention. Since its organization this company has received in premiums from ita
policy-holders the sum of $1,517,000. To effect the same amount of insurance in a Mutual Com
pany" would have cost them an initial outlay of $2,000,000. By allowing its policy-holders to re
tain in their own possession this excesa of $483,000. the Universal has virtually paid them a
"dividend" of $183,000, and paid it, too, in advance, instead of at the end of one or more years.
It is impossible to find any example of a Mutual Company furnishing insurance at so low a cost
by returning to its policy-holders an equal amount upon similar receipts.
Second. Participation in the legitimate profits of the Company, upon a plan which secures to Ms
}wlicy-liolders the same treatment which Directors and Stockholders award to themsel?ee. This system
of participation, in connection with the low "stock" rates of premium, most necessarily secure to
Ihr policy-holders every advantage to be derived from prudent and careful management.
The low rates of premium compel economy, and, independent of participation, guarantee to the
policy-holder his insurance at a rate which is not in excess of the cost in well managed mutual
companiesr while, by the proposed plan of participation in what may be considered the legiti
mute profits of the business, the cost will be still further diminished.
Thus by the combined advantages arising from low stock rate and participation In the profits
it is confidently believed that tin* UNIVERSAL LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY oflora in
surance at its lowest practicable cost.
K?rThose of the existing Policy-holders who desire to participate in the Profits under the new
Plan can do so by making replication to the Head Office, or to any of the Agents of the Com
