THUE^DAY, ATRIL 6,1893.
Clemson College gets a big lift
in the privilege tax. $45,000 has
been paid in airead to the State,
all of which goes to Clemson.
A Washington special say : "To
day a quarantine official and a
member of the health board from
New York were here in consulta
tion with government officials in
regard to the prospects of cholera
in the country the coming summer.
Their statements were full of
bloomy forebodings. They believe
the appearance of the cholera is
almost inevitable, and for various
reasons they fear that it will be
widespread and disastrous in its
results so that every human effort
that can be put forth by the gov
ernment and the people to prevent
its spread or lessen its destructive
efferts should be* put in play."

He said : "Tell the good people of

Meat Comes Down.
CHICAGO, April 1.-The great
provision deal on [the board of
trade, which for twelve months
has kept the price of pork, lard
and ribs under the domination of
two firms, was loosened up to-day.
Cudahh and Fairbanks, who have
since March, 1892, been in com
mand of the provision market,
have abdicated. They are satisfied
seemingly, with the $3,000,000
which they are said to have cleared
upon their twelve months7 manipu
The markets for provisions to
day, without the support which
those firms have been in the habit
of giving them, were extremely
weak. There was a drop of $1 per
barrel in pork and $1 per 100
pounds in lard. When the crowd
saw that hog meats were aban
doned by their late supporters
there was a general rush to unload
resulting in the heavy decline
referred io. The big drop in the
price of provisions was the prin
cipal feature in the markets to-day.
Everything else was similarly
affected, but at a less depressing
extent than the provision deal.
I TILLMAN GOES WESTWARD. J
He And Mr. .Traxler Off To
Visit Liquor Concerns.
It has been kept very quiet aud
nothing has been said about it,
but all the same Governor Tillman
will leave the city and th J State )
this morning on an extended
western tour, which will cause him
to absent himself from the city
for something over a week, or j
perhaps ten days.
He is to be accompanied by
State Liquor Commissioner
Traxler, and they are going away

I R?parations for the opening of
the great State Dispensary- The
Governor said when asked about
his trip yesterday afternoon that
he and Mr. Traxler would leave
the city this morning. He states
! that they will visit Cincinnati and
other western cities. They are
going he says, to confer with the
great brewers and whiskey man
ufactures to see about the selection
of the stock for the big Stat e bar

Mr. Traxler will return to the
[ city this morning and he and the
Governor will leave at once.
This ?B perhaps the first time I
that a Governor of any States has |
[ever gone on such a mission.

I come out of the determination of
the liquor mer/ to fight the Dis

they would be found open after
the day fixed by law for the Dis
pensrry law togo into active opera
tion. He said he was .there to see j
that the law was carried out ac
cording to the provisions, and
the opposition of the liquor men
was not worrying him in^he least.
The Governor says that the
j stand taken by the liquor men
that those who had paid their $100
to the county treasurers, and
secured licenses from the cities
land town to carry on a liquor
business for a year, such licenses
being secnred. prior ' to the time
that the law--au they claim-.:
could have become operative", can
not possibly hold good and it will
never be so decided. He gives his
reasons for. this, but does not care
to make them public. The Gov

ever of any barrooms remaining
[open after the last day of Juno
He says the preparations for the
opening of the ^Dispensary will be

RALEIGH. N. C., March 10.
News reached here co-day of a
remarkable fight in Cleveland
county, near the South Carolina
line. Two men, named Trout and
Hutchins, were removing a
a beehive, about which they had
wrapped a cloth. Two men named
McDaniel met them,and a quarrel
and fight followed. Hutchins
stripped the cloth from the hive,
and placing it over his head held
the hive in front as he advanced
toword the McDaniels. Bees poured
out and savagely attacked the
latter who had to retreat. One of
them * shot Hutchins in the
shoulder, but he advanced with his
novel Gatling gun, and sided by
the bees drove the McDaniels over

A Cure for Hog Disease.
Joel Smith, a farmer who lives
about ten miles from Waycross,
Ga., has discovered a simple and
successful remedy for diseases of
all kinds among hogs. Previous to
the discovery of this remedy Mr.
Smith lost a large number of hogs
from the cholera. The farmers will
appreciate the remedy.
The remVdy is ball potash. The
food is put in a trough and tho
potash is mixed thoroughly with
the food. One" ball of potash is
sufficient for fifty hogs. The dose
is repeated about once every two
months. ' The hogs are slow to eat
the mixture at first, but they soon
learn to eat it
Since Mr. Smith has been
treating his hogs with the above
named remedy there has been no
sickness among ?.them. The hogs
belonging to his neighbors have
died from cholera and his hogs '
remained in healthy ^ondition.

Rupture of Intestines Caused by
In a recent, number of the New
York Medical Journal, Dr. Fayette
Dunlap describes a case of resec
tion of the small intestine for rup
ture caused by a tapeworm. When
he saw the patient he believed that
there was an ectopic gestation with
ruptured sac. On the abdomen
being opened the pelvis was seen
to be filled with recent blood-clot,
and a tapeworm was found pro
truding from a large ragged rup
ture in the small intestine. About
two-thirds of the lumen of the
intestine was gone, the edges were
ragged and gangrenous, but it was
quite evident that there had been
no previous ulceration. The dam

for thirty hours after the opera

the abdomen there was remo/ed
about eight feet of live tapeworm,
and with tho enema there came
away seventeen feet more. Dr.

to free itself so eroded the wall as

Union Mutual Life Insurance Company,
Its Policies are the Most Liberal Now Offered
to the Public.
Is I he only exist ing Company whose policies are, o: can be subject to the
MAINE NON-FORFEIT URE LAW. U
\ . ... , _ ' ' %
WHAT IT IS.
The Maine Non-Forfeiture law protects policies from forfeiture
by reason of default of payment of premiums. It provides that, after
three years' premiums have been paid, failure to pay any subsequent
premiums shall not forfeit s. policy, but it shall continue in force for
its full araoun.t until the reserve (less a small surrender charge) upon
the policy is exhausted.
The reserve is a sum made up of portions of each and every pre
mium paid upon a policy in anticipation of its maturity. Beginning
with a small portion of the first premium, it is increased each year by
the addition of each subsequent premium, and grows larger year by
year, until, at maturity, it axactly equals the face of the policy. When
a policy iSidiscontiuued therefore, there is in the hands of th? Com
pany a reservo, greater or less, according to the character and age of
the policy. Instead of permitting the Company, upon non-payment
of premium, to confiscate this reserve, the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law
requires the Company to continue the policy in force until the policy
holder receives an equivalent for it in extended insurance.
How IT WORKS.
If a person, aged 35, pays throe years' premiums upon a twenty
payment Life policy and then discontinues payment, the policy will
be continued.4 years and 257 days longer; if he pay? five premiums,
and then discontinues, the insurance will continue 7 years and 357
days longer. -v
If the polices a twenty year endowment, same age, three years'
payments will give^an extension of 8 years and 150 days ; five years'
payment 13 years, 380 days. If the policy is a 15 Year Endowment,
($1,000) same age, thrta^ars' payments will secure insurance to the
end of the endowment period and $13.68 in cash if insured lives till
that time, and in like manner ten years' payments secures insurance
for the full 15 years and $592^ in cash.
These extensions vary witnSihe age of the insured, the class of
policy, and the number of paymenis made ; they are stated in each
policy, in years and days, for each number of payments, so that-the
policy-holder.knows at a glance exactly what he is entitled to if he
discontinues his payments at any time. \?
What it Has Done.
The Company Has Paid over Two Hundred Death Claims, in con
sequence of this "law, aggregating in sum3 insured more than Four
Hundred Thousand Dollars.
In every case there had been a default in ?he payment of pre
mium, and, except for this law, the policies would have been of little
or no value. Instead of this, the insurance in cachease was extended
to the time of death, and the Company was required to pay to the
beneficiaries under the policies the sum of $418,335.77.
Tie Tie ol. lie Lat Extensions as Compared
WITH IPAJLD-TTIP VALUES.
It is tjfe custom of many companies to provide in their policies
that,-upon discontinuance of payment of Premium, paid-up policies
will be given, without the option of extension. This was the practice
of the Union Mutual before the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law was en
acted, but it now substitutes for pa d up values the more advantage
ous plan of extended insurance. The objection to the paid-up system
is that the amount of paid-up insurance which is given upon the dis
continuance of payments upon a policy, unless it has been in force a
great many years, is insignificant, and of little or no value as protec
tion ; and it leaves the insured who ceases ^J^inent without adequate
insurance at th? very time he needs it the most.
The great advantage of the extended insurance afforded hy the
Maine Law over the most liberal paid-up system is strikingly shown by
the following comparison, and it will be observed that tie paid-up
value is insignificant in comparison with the amount actually paid by
the Union Mutual. The result of two hundred and twelve policies
If the insured had received paid-up policies instead of ex
tended insurance, the Company would have had to
pay in settlement of the claims only. $98,197.50
Whereas, in fact, it did pay under the Maine Law, $418,344.77
Making a difference in favor of the beneficiaries under Two
Hundred and Twelve pol iciei of $320,147.28
The policies are free from all restrictions, and incontestible after
