THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE AND CAPE COUNTY HERALD. FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 1913.
When a Business Man Needs Money He Can Turn to His Life Insurance Policy and Quickly Obtain Cash. He has no feeling of obligation as when he barrows from a bank, and his life insurance company is ready and glad to be of service. But- Don't mortgage your life insurance policy to buy an automo bile, or to buy anything else. Don't do it unless you know you will go broke without that cash. When you consider borrowing on yonr policy, remember, it isn't YOUR money you are taking. It is your little children mortgaging their bread and butter. It is your wife giving it by doing days' work for some other woman. Even if you do fail in business, your creditors cannot take your life insurance money from you or from your dear ones. That money is absolutely safe from every business wreck. And you cannot save money in any other way for your family, if your business goes on the rocks. Think of this when you are in desperate need of cash. Mortgage your home, if you must but have a life insurance policy with which you are your family can pay off the mortgage. FRED B. PATTEN, Genl.

In koeping with his annual custom, C. L. Graves closed doors to his Pop Coin market Friday and devoted the day to observing the CCth anniver sary of his birth. He remained at home where he re ceived and entertained many of his friends and relatives who had called to give expression to their feelings of interest in his welfare, and after his guests had departed late in the after noon, he then began preparations for the real celebration. At his request, Mrs. Graves prepar ed one of th" old-timQ&paits of turnip-greens, seasoned wV h. jaws, baKtd a big batch of corn brad and provided him with a large bucket of ice cold buttermilk. While the supper was In coure of preparation, Mr. Graves tuned up the old violin and amused himself with a few of his favorite tunes among which were "Natchez Under the Hill," "Ar kansas Traveler," "Mocking Pird,' "Turkey in the Straw," "AH Bound 'Hound With a Woolen String" and "The Gorder's March to the Tig Ren." He reluctantly put the fiddle back in its accustomed place when Mrs. Graves suggested that he prepare for supper. When everything was in readiness the old pioneer drew his chair up to tho table and proceeded to lay waste to the good things that had been pre pared for his enjoyment. Not a word was uttered while the feast proceeded, and finally after the last drop of buttermilk had been drained, and all the corn bread and greens and pig snouts had faded from view, the old musician pushed back from the table, and after giving a few satisfied yawns, called for the boot jack, in evidence of his intention to retire for the night.

The negro appeared in the store at about 4 o'clock in the afternoon and asked Meyer Maltz, the clerk, to show him some stockings. After making his purchase, and while the clerk was en gaged in wrapping the bundle, Buff right was occupied in concealing two pairs of pants under his coat which he wore ihrow n loosely over onebhoulder. Mr. Kasretz, who was sitting at the tailor's bench in the rear 'of the store, became suspicious of the darky and walked down to the front of the store to see what he was doing. He aske( liutt right why he wore the coat in that peculiar fashion, and while ques tioning him, he suddenly seized the coat and jerked it Irom the negro s shoulders. When he did so, there was revealed two pairs of trousers hanging across the arm that had been concealed by the coat.
