Catholic Church Dedicated Oc
tober 21, 1860.
lu looking through some old
copies of Th? Advertiser several
days ago we came acruss the fol
lowing notice of thc dedication of
the Catholic church, which, asMe
from its historic value, will be of
peculiar interest to many of our
readers, the date of this old copy
of The Advertiser being Wednes
day October 24, 18GU:
"The dedication of this noble
structure to God, on last .Sunday,
was a most imposing ceremony,
performed, as it was, by the Right
Rev. Bishop Lynch, and his assist
ant Clergy, with all the pomp and
solemnity demanded by so sublime
an occasion. The capacious temple
was filled to overflowing, with all
denominations of our people, and
nothing was omitted that might
have contributed to the grandeur
and the glory of the scene.
'The Choir was assisted by the
best performers and singers in Char
leston, and better Church music
never raised the aspirations of man
towal ds Heaven.
"The Bishop delivered a chaste,
clear, and eloquent address in the
morning, and in tue evening Dr.
O'Connel of Columbia made an
able vindication of the doetrine of
The young man had been on bis
summer holiday for a short time
when ene day the telegraph mes
senger handed him this message:
Come down as soon as you can.
I am dying.
Nearly a day later, after a long
journey he arrived at her home, and
was met on the piazza by Kate her

sending such a message?"

say that I was dying to see you,
but my ten words ran out and I had

.Give Your Boy an Education.
"What is the money value of an
education? The average reduced to
individual cases would be something
like this: Two boys, age 14, are
"both interested in mechanics. One
goes into the shops, the other into
a technical school. The boy in the
ahops starts at ?4 -a week, and by
2the time he is 18 he is getting
#7. At that age the other boy is
leaving school and starting work at
$10 a week. At 20 the shop-train
ed young fellow is getting 89.50
and the technical graduate ?15; at
.22 the former's weekly wages is
.$11.50, and the latter's 820; and by
Ihe time they are both 25 the shop
worker finds 812.75 in his pay en
velope while the technically trained
man draws a salary of $31.
These figures are based on a study
.of 2,000 actual workers made by

industrial and technical education.

NEW YORKER INVENTS HOUSE
tn Two Sections, With Wails and Roof
Hung on Hinges-Quite Easy to
A rather elaborate poultry house
has been designed by a New York
man. It is in two sections, one of
which slides upon the other and ls
small enough to be easily taken apart.
The lower section has screens along
Useful Poultry House.
Its side walls, while the wocden walla
are hinged at the top so that they
can be opened at any angle desired,
chains holding them in position. In
this way ventilation can be obtained
and the interior protected from rain
or too much light. The upper section,
which has a peaked roof, has a door
at one end and a series of roosts ar
ranged around the sides and ends on
the interior. One-half of the roof la
screened, too, and the top on this side
is hinged so that it can be kept open
or closed. The entire roof can also be
slid on or off at will. This arrange
ment makes it easy to clean the house
thoroughly in all parts and keep it
well ventilated, thus eliminating in
sect pests to a great degree.
PERCH SPASE FOR CHICKENS
Small/Hens Generally Require About
Six Inches While Larger Birds
Should Be Allowed Eight.
As a general rule, small hens should
have about six inches of perch space
while the larger hens should be al
lowed eight inches. In the winter
they huddle closer together, but in
the summer there should be plenty_oL
room to allow them to spread out?
Perches should be 12 Inches apart and
not closer than 15 inches to the wall
or celling. Show birds, especially
Hinged Perches and Dropping Board.
Leghorns or similar types should be
kept at a greater distance from walls
aud ceilings. Many good birds are
spoiled by "brooming" their tails
against the walls.
There are several methods of mak
ing movable perches. One of thc most
common is by hinging them to the
wall at the back.
The fowls must be fed at least
twice a day.
Exercise is necessary for both
health and egg production.
A box of crushed oyster shell
should always be within reach.
Split carrots, turnips and cabbage
In half, Instead of chopping fine.
Clear fresh water is necessary for
the hens at all times and all seasons.
The most profitable way to Keep
chickens of any kind is to feed them
To obtain a supply of winter eggs

Old fowls require less feed than
young ones and it is a mistake to
The walls and roosts should be kept
free from mites, which suck tile life
blood of the fowls.
Cement floors should be well cov
ered with straw. The bare floor is
too hard and too cold.
After the second annual molt hens
are apt to become eggbound, espe
cially if well fed and fat.
When the clean, fresh eggs are gath,
ered they should be put in a clean,
dry, cool place until marketed.

In Market For Long
I desire to notify the people of
Edgefield county that I have ar
ranged to give them a good mar
ket for Upland Long Staple cotton.
I solicit a trial shipment to meat
Trenton or a trial in some other
way. Let me urye the farmers to
keep their long staple colton fne
from leaves and trash. Careful
handling pays more in long staple
than in short staple cotton, for the
fibre is injured in freeing it from
trash. Long staple cotton is used
only for goods of a superior quali
ty. Have your long staple cotton
picked by careful hands. It will pay
you. Marketing your long staple
cotton through me will mean mon
ey in your pocket.
