Washington Oct. 18.?The Supreme
Court of the United States today an?
nounced its determination to review
the findings of the lower courts in
the case of VC'ue vs. th<? Nothwest
- rn Mutual Life Insurance Company.
This case Involves the Question as to
whether the ordinary life assurance
policy insures against hanging under
sentence :be inw. McCue is one of
i>. helrg of the late Mayor McCue of
Charlottssvllle, Va., who was- hanged
i few yours ago on the charge of
murdering his wife. The Insurance
company refused to make payment on
a policy Amounting to $16.000. The
United Stat?s Circuit Court for the
Hestern district df Virginia decided in
favor <?f the company, holding that
death <>n the gallowg was not one of
the risks against which Mc^ue was
insured but lhi ^ourt of appeals for
the Fourth Circuit reversed that find?
ing, and held In favor of the McCue
policy. Thi Supreme Court will go
over the entire record and decide the
OOSS upon Its merits.

MR. CLEVELAND'S KINDNERS.
People With Hard Luck Stories Re?
ceive Sympathy and Help.
Mr. Cleveland's friends have any
number of stories about his own kind
heartedness to both men and animals*
When fishing he limited the number
of fish he caught with a view to some
reasonable use, and he killed his flat
as soon as they were caught. When
lying ill at Westland he greatly en
Joyed the singing of the birds in the
early morning in the trees about the
place, and was anxious that the cats
should not be permitted to get at
them. Once when he was living in
New York I remember his worrying
for days about a cat that he saw some
boys chasing; he blamed himself for
not getting out of the street car and
defending the frightened animal. He
was doubtless restrained from such
chivalric descent upon the young hood?
lums by reflection as to the crowd and
conspicuity that would havo attended
The president's family were amused
by the frequently grotesque begging
letters that poured in upon them. But
the numbers of thee? applications and
the absurdity of many of them did
not by any means cause the president
to disregard them all; he gave atten?
tion to some appeals, Indeed, that
might be thought to have little war?
rant. I remember the case of a
youth who "had the nerve* 'to ask the
president to assist him financially
through college. The young man had
no claim at all upon Mr. Cleveland,
but here was something about the
letter that interested him, so, instead
of throwing it into the wast paper
basket, he made careful Inquiries and
actually granted the request.
I found out that at Marion he had
lent a neighbor some seven hundred
dollars for what ??emed a reasonable
seafaring venture, nearly all of which
sum was lost. I do not know how
many "old farms" and other small
real estate "Investments" of his were

while before, Mr. Cleveland sent for
him and confessed that he had "made
a fool of himself again," and wanted
to be helped out of the scrape. In
other words, he had g.me security

of sonv- live thousand dollari?in a
ease where he thought the man had
been unjustly treated, though nis ben?
eficiary was a kind of man for whom
Mr. Cleveland really could have little
sympathy. Surely, all through his
life Mr. Cleveland was "fortifying his
own heart" with acts of kindness. No
wonder he understood so well that
trait in Lincoln.
Carolina Cabbage Industry.
The early cabbage Industry in
South Carolina has developed enor?
mous proportions in recent years.
It is said that this one crop has in?
creased land values and farm rev?
enues more than any other crop in
South Carolina. The history of this
Industry, as told In the Taylor-Trot
wood Magazine by John W. Geraty,
a pioneer cabbage raiser, makes an
exceedingly interesting story.
Several years ago Mr. Geraty, who
was then a small dealer in merchan?
dise, conceived the idea of growing
a crop of winter cabbage for the
New York market. A crop of three
acres was planted the first winter,
and the neighbors thought he was
cabbage crazy. The cabbage seed
was planted in the early winter. The
crop matured In early spring and
was harvested and shipped to New
York, selling at prices which made
a net profit of several hundred dol?
lars per acre.
From this small beginning the in?
dustry has grown until at the present
time there are over fourteen thousand
acres of vegetab'es grown in three
coast counties of South Carolina?
Charleston, Colleton and Beaufort?
for shipment to the Northern mar?
kets. As many as 250 solid car loads
have been shipped from Young's Is?
land in a single day during the ship?
ping season. On one farm on Young's
Island are sown each season over
six thousand pounds of cabbage
Mr. Geraty states that the lands
from which these vegetables are
grown were considered too low for cot?
ton, and forty years ago were worth
from one to five dollars per acre. To?
day they are valued at $150 per acre,
but cannot be bought at any price
from the present owners.?American
Dr. A. N. Bellinger, one of the old?
est physicians of Charleston, died
Remember that if the opportunities
for great deeds should never come,
the opportunity for good deeds Is re?
newed day by day. The thing for us
to long for is the goodness, not the
glory.?F. W. Faber.

"Not many days ago the editor of
The Herald received a statement from
a local merchant on a bill-head print?
ed out of town. The editor of the
Herald never thought of ordering his
goods from out of town but went
straight to the merchant's store and
bought them because he believes In
patronizing home enterprises. But
not so with the merchant; when he
needed stationery he never thought of !
patronizing the home paper but went
to extra trouble and expense to get
the same goods elsewhere.
The Herald is not an object of
charity but a legitimate business in?
stitution that is as well equipped for
turning out first- class printing as any
office in the State. It does not want
a penny it does not earn legitimately.
But as a home Institution it certainly
is entitled to an opportunity to bid on
work before It is sent elsewhere. It j
it cannot compete with other first
class printing houses it doesn't want
the work, but all things being even
the home enterprise ought to be giv?
en the preference. The same prin?
ciple can be applied to every business
enterprise in Dillon and this article is
written for the benennt of those who
are in the habit of buying other
things out of town besides printing.
The home merchant is entitled to the
local trade provided he can give you
the same goods for the same money.
This buying away from home is more
of a habit than anything else?not a

Onions and Pneumonia.
Hot onions, according to a Frenca>
physician, are said to be a sure cura
for pneumonia. The remedy is as
follows: Take six or ten onions, ac?
cording to sire, chop fine, put in &

same quantity of rye meal and vine?
gar enough to make a thick pasta.
In the meantime stir it thoroughly,
letting it simmer for five or ten min?

enough to cover the lungs and apply
to chest as hot as the patient cant
bear. In about ten minutes apply an?
other, and thus continue by reheat?

the patient will be out of danger.
