packing his valise with an arm foll of
old exchanges, a*box of paper collars,
and ? tooth brush, our Editor departed
henc?'fbr the mountain regions of South
Carolina, and will probably be absent fer
the next vc oath. But during his sojourn
in the mountains he will not forget the
Advertiser, as he has promised to write
ns a weekly letter, giving his observa
tions by the way. ' We hope he wBI have
a pleasant trip, and return much rein

The Kev. Mr. Broaddus in the Male
Academy.
As wflT b8 seen by reference to our ad
vertising columns, the Rev. LUTHER
BRoADbus^wfll ' assume charge of the
Edgefield Male Academy en the 11th of j
September next. We "beg for Ins card- [
and the accompanying one of the Trus
J^esv??*he Sf ?sciai attention of parents,
guardians, ami the public generally.
. That Mr. BROADDUS has determined to
take the Mate School, is, without
doubt, 'good news for the'people of Edge
field. He is young, fresh in.body and
vigoTOTisln mind, and has not had time
to forget anything of that high course of
study which so distinguishes his alma
water-Furman University.JMost earn
es?ly^ dd ws? hope pur :people will come J
ap to the support of Mr. BROADDUS. He |
deserves, it ; .and if he is encouraged, as
he should be, he will build up here once
more a fine school.
Piano Tuning.
Our young friend WILLIS CHE A TH AM
has just returned from Baltimore, where
he has been for the last six or eight
months, receiving instruction in the art
Of tufting ?id repairing Pianos, and
brings with him a high recommendation
from the Principal of the. Institution as
to his proficiency in that art. We call J
attention to WILLIE'S card in another |

In. glane?rg OVC^.?H* proceedings of
the Commenct:mont at Emory bollegc,
Oxford, Ga., cn the 10th, we notice tho
following complimentary allusion's to
young JOSEPH A. TIMMERMAN,- a son of
our old and esteemed friend,. W. T. TIM
HERMAN, Esq., of Richmond County,
Ga.,-a son of Edgfield and well known
throughout our District-an'd take pleas
ure in transferring the.same to our col
umns. Young TIMMERMAN, although
only in College some eighteen months,
yet received the second honor in the
Graduating Class. Read the following:
' Mr. J. A.--Timmerman discussed a
theme that was calculated to excite'tho
emotional nature, and also to arouse tho
more intense feelings of our bosoms.
The " Impeachment of Warren Hastings"
furnished a subject that developed in
young T. a power that a less exciting
theme would fail to discover. I appre
hend/that he experienced emotions simi
lar to those that agi ted the bosom of the
?loquent Burke when he uttered the
memorable words, *' I impeach him in
the name of the people of India. I im
peach htm a? the common enemy and;
oppressor of all." The manner in which'
the grave subject was presented indicated
that the points wore fully appreciated.

Of Deep Interest to Many Edgefield
. People.
Of deep interest to many Edgefield
peqpl? "will .be a forth" coming book, en
titled "Reminiscences of Dr. WM. B.
JOHNSON." This book is to he issued by
the ,Rev. Mr. 'GAINES, editor of the
Working Christian, and will be compiled
from certain manuscripts written by Dr.
JOHNSON a few years before his death.
These manuscripts are said to contain a
good autobiography of this pious, gifted
and useful man:. Mr. GAINES thinks
this book will contain about 150 pages,
and that it can be sold for $1. When the
li?mes of three hundred persons are
pledged for as many copies, the work
will be put'ih print without delay.
tn this community where Dr. JOHN
SON lived and labored during the best
yeaors of his life, we think there will be
no difficulty in securing a large list .of
subscribers to the proposed work. We
hope that many, of his old scholars, many
of his old friends, many admirers of his
pure and stern Christian character, will,
without delay, send their names to Mr.
GAINES. Address 41 Rev. GAINES,, of the
Working Christian, Charleston S. C."
Speaking for. ourself, personally, we
knew Dr. JOHNSON in the most intimate
manner from our cradle to his grave,
and we loved and honored him in the
profoundest manner. He died in Green
ville in October, 1862V during the war, in
his 81st year-a devoted patriot, who
watched and worked for his native South
until his latest breath, and died praying
for her freedom.
For us, it. will be not only a pleasure,
but an honor and a privil?ge, to receive
and forward the' names of subscribers to
tb.e " Reminiscences of Dr. WM. B. JOHN
SON."

DEATH OF A REPENTANT ROQUE.
Recently, a negro of bad character died
iu this County, named Sam. Reynolds.
He had been strongly suspected of set
ting fire to tho gin house of T. B. Fraser,
Esq., which was destroyed by tire more
than a year ago. On his death-bed, Sam,
contested his guilt in this matter, und
also that he set fire to tho Spring Hill
Church. He accused a certain white man
of being tho " cause of his ruin."-Sum
ter News.
SUDDEN DEATH.-On Monday nwt, the
second son of Mr. Sol. C. Harman, ^
promising child of about ten years, came
to a most melancholy and sudden death.
Ho bad been playing in n pile of cotton
seed, and being missed at dinner, upon
search he wail found smothered in the
cotton seed. He had grabbled out a per
pendicular hole in the seed about the size
of his body, and the poor little fellow was
found with his head down in the hole.
He had been absent for about an hour
from the house.-Lexington Dispatch.

The following, from Hon. Edmund
Burke, speaks for itself:
NEWPORT, N. H., June 5, 1871.
DEAR Sin:-In February last a fire oc
curred in my dwelling house. It caught
from a stove-pipe, between the ceiling
and .loor*of the second story, and had
made considerable headway when dis
covered. It was in a place difficult of
access and much combustible material
around it to feed upon. On discovering
the fire, my wife, with the aid of one
servant girl, applied the extinguisher
purchased'of yon, and very soon sup
pressed it.
I attribute the preservation of my
house entirely to the extinguisher, which
no sum of money would induce me to
part with, if I could not get another,
. . Yours truly,
EDMUND BURKE.
The Columbia Union, of Tuesday
says : " Persons who visitad tho place
yesterday, near Littleton ou the line of
the Greenville and Columbia Railroad,
state that between 2,200 and 2,300 cords
of oak and pine wood were burned. The
fire was incendiary, it having been set in
many places. Mr. Joseph Crews loses
between $3000 and $4000 by this piece of
malice. The railroad trestle was not
much injured, although it had been set
on fire two or throe miles distant from
the wood."

About Effecting Insurance en their ld ves:
1st. Insurance at Stock Rates, being from 20 to: 3C Per
Cent, less than the Rates charged by Mutual Companies
2d. Each Policy-holder is regarded as a Stockholder to the
extent of one Annual . Premium on his Policy, and wjl share
in th e Profits of the Company- to. the same extent as J Stock
holder owning'an equal amount of the Capital Stoc]$.
3d. Every Policy issued by the Company is nomfofeitable,
and contains a! Clause stating its exact Surrender Vane.
BEFORE INSURING YOUR LIFE OR ACCEPTING THE AG?SCY OF ANY
COMPANY
READ THE FOLLOWING :
A lengthened experience has demonstrated that the rates of Erenram ordinarily
charged by Life Insttrance Companies ?rc from twenty-five to thirty p* cent, in excess
of what arc necessary for a sate' and legitimate conduct of the bvuiness. In other
words, carefully am) prudentlv-managed Companies charging "Mttual" rates have
been able to return to their policyholders from 25 to 30 per cent, of tte amount charged
for premiums./ :
When Life Insurance Companies were first organized/ the reliibility of the data
upon which the premiums were constructed had not undergone the test of experience.
It was thought, theiefore, no more than common prudence to adopt a scale of premiums
which would, in any event, meet all the presumed and unforeseen contingencies of the
business.
As long as the matter was involved in some doubt,' it was better to fix thc rate too
high than to incur the risk of making it too low ; because, in the former case, the error
could be easily remedied, at least iu part, hy returning to the policyholders, at certain
intervals, such portion of the premium charged as wa? found unnecessary for thc
purposes of the business and the complete security of the Compauy.
Experience, however, having satisfactorily demonstrated that these ra'te? ave.ex?csT
sive, what possible excuse can there be" f<>r maintaining them ? .
Ayajlipglhen15ely.es of this experience, the Directors ?nd'tanagers pf the ?fth vsal
Jffi ?MWQW'?WWW* ft it? fi^ap.ija't'jon*, apopted Vsc?je of premiums in ac?r
dance tnerpH'?tb. ?u$l $ijp1i Tms proved to bo fair and adequate, and all that ?as
necessary to meei thaTcquirepiente ff the businees, TheBc premiums are about ?we tty
five per cent, lower tl}?n those charged by Mutual Companies.
It also appeared, ?uasinuch as the rates so established were as near as could possibly
be determined fair rates, and not in excess of what Insurance has previously cost the
Policyholders m Mutrial Companies, that any profits arising from prudent manage
ment justly and properly belonged to thest?ckholders of the Company, for thc risk
incurred hy them in undertaking the business.
Experience has shown that there aro sources of profit in the practice of the business
which theory will not ddrnit of being considered as elemeuts m thc calculation ef^ the
premiums. These- results from a saving in the mortality of the wcm.hova., of a Com
pany owing to the meificat selection of good lives, a gain in in,tWy*t on tim investments
of the Company over that assumed iii the calculation qf it's premiums, the. profits
derivable from th- lapsing ap,d su;^d>!f pf N'ties- by the members, and from other
' rUutMnnn thpsp-sq|ree?, in a Comvhnv poSse>sed of a capital of $200,000, and dc-'
ing a fair Satcmft of business, 'would gWto the stockholders dividends largely ft eg ?
cess of what wera counted ou by the'Directora pf thc Unketwl z\'M ?
organization. ' They have, thVruTpr?, determined to mv\f wm ty iwhcyholdero ot
the Coinpaiiy a' large lm'rt t\{ the profits accruing fron? ih> sources named, ?di of which ?
h.ty.e h.-r?totoro liJ( i) ('?lYi.k'd ajpor.g tlic-setofkbc?^?8- , .
TV plan wlo^it,l'}b?W*th% drw*i6n is as follows : Every person who may hereafter
insure with thc UnivcrnU will, for the purposes of divi?oi, be treated as a stoekUol- 1
der to tho extent of one Annual Premium nponnia Www ; an-lwill ?harem the profits j
of the Company to precisely the saihe extent as a Stockholder owwy -nuequal amount j
of (he capital tiock. . -iii
By thu? system of Insurance, original with the Universal, the pcheyhoMer secures
the following important advantages : . :
FIRST. Insurance at (Ju regular " Slock" rates, requiring q primary wUlay of
ahmt twenty< to thirty per cent, less than that charged by Mutual Companies, and
which isxclivaient to a yearly " dividend" paid in advance-oVttesX amount ou mutual
rates. This low cost of insurance is worthy of attention Sinai its organization this
Company han received to premiums from its policyholders' the sum pf ?1,517,000. To
effect the same amount of insurance in a Mutual Company wouid have cost them an
initial outlay of $2,000,000. By allowing its policyholders to retain in their own pos
session this "excess of $483,000, the Universal has virtually paid them a " dividend ' of
$483,000, and paid it, too. in advance, instead of at the end of ort? or moro years. It
is impossible to find anr example of a Mutual Company furnishing insurance at so
low a cost hvreturningito ita policyholders an equal amount upon similar receipts. ,
SECOND. * PartidvaHon in (he legitimate profits of the Company, tQKM ?f vbn which
secures to the poUeynolders the same treatment which Pire?tojs. and Stockholders award
to themselves. Tins system of participation, in commotion with thc low " stock" rates
of premium, must necessarily secure to. the policyholders every possible advantage to
be derived from prudent and careful management. ' i.
The low rates -of premium compel economy, and, independent of participation,
guarantee to the policyh?lder his insurance at a rate which is not in excess of the cost
in well managed mutual companies ; while, by the proposed plan. of participation in
what may bc considered the legitimate profits of the business, the cost will be still
further diminished.
Thus by the combined advantages arising from low stock rate and participation in
thc profits it is confidently believed that the UNIVERSAL LIFE INSURANCE
COMPANY offers insurance at its lowest practicable cost.
Those of thc existing Policyholders who desire to : particip?t^ in the Profits
under the new Plan can do so by making application to the ijoad Qfljee, or to any -of
the Agents of the Company.
