The Time, The Place, The Opportunity!
Next Thursday, February 24th, at North Laurens,
the opportunity awaits all shrewd investors who arc desirious of getting- a good profit on a comparatively small outlay, in a short time. This is not a
Get-Rich-Quick scheme, but a safe, sure, solid and sound attractive investment that is bound beyond question to bring handsome returns. From the
many propositions we have had made us to buy these Beautiful. High, Dry and Level Lots at private sale, all of which we promptly refused, we
would conclude that there is a most healthy and strong demand for this high class and eagerly sought after Suburban Property, lying right along side
the proposed route of the Interurban Trolley Line. Laurens, Greenville and Clinton are wide-awake to the limit on this valuable acquisition to their
respective, progressive and growing towns, therefore the greatest and keenest interest is centered on North Laurens. Don't forget the
Free Lot and the Big: Balloon Ascension as Already Announced, Thursday, February 24th, at 10:30 a. m.
The parade will form and start from the Court House Squ;ire, headed by the Manager, the Auctioneer, the Surveyor, and Prof. Charles Swartz, the
Aeronaut; then comes the big famous Silver Cornet and Reed Band from Newberry, led by Prof. W. A. Wherrv. Musical Director and Conductor,
followed by hundreds of eager purchasers in automobiles, carnages, surreys, rubber-tired buggies and other good turnouts, and you want to be right
there in this grand money making procession. The Free Tickets to the Free Lot will be given out on arrival at the property; immediately after which
the Auction Sale begins. Should Thursday, Feb. 24th, prove another inclement day, the sale with all attractions will be held on the First Fair Day
thereafter. Be on hand early Thursday, February 24th.

When Setting The Hens.
A hen should never he set where
other hens will lay to her or disturb
her. If she has stolen her nest in a
secluded place, well and good; hut if
she wants to sit in ttie hen-house
where the rest of the hens lay, she
should be moved, which can easily be
done after night, and by keeping the
nest closed for a day she will gener
ally become quieted down.
The house where they are set
should preferably he in another
yard, or kept closed for a few day,
as she will invariably go hack to her
original nest, if allowed to go into
her cdd run or yard.
After she has been on probation
several days she Is set on the eggs
intended for her to incubate. Right
now the work begins, for the time
to light the head lice is just three
weeks before the chicks are hatched.
She is dusted thoroughly with a good
lice powder, and this does not mean
sprinkling a little over her while she
is sitting on the nest. She is held in
the lap and gone over thoroughly,
holding back the feathers and getting
the powder down next to her skin.
She is then placed on the nest gently
so as to keep as much of the powder in
the feathers as possible. This dusting
is repealed weekly until the chicks
come off, when they will have a fair
chance to live.?W. C. Taylor, in
