ONE DAY'S LABOR
FOR THE ORPHANAGES
Saturday hug Come to be Set Apart
as a Work Day for the Orphanages
of Sooth Carolina. '
One day in each year has been set
apart for the past two years l\ South
Carolina as "Orphan Work Day," on
which day the proceeds of every man's
work has been asked to bo given to
the different orphanages of the State.
This has been a custom now for sev
eral years and each year finds more
and more men willing to give their
portion to the worthy cause. This
year the work day falls on the 30th of
is month, Saturday, and on that day
^?body who will is expected to lay
their earnings and send them
t orphanage in which he or she
st interested. All of the orphan
ages of the state have jointly request
ed the day and they are expecting a
The following letter has been re
ceived In regard to the work day with
-the request to publish:
Orphnnagc Work Day.
For the last few years the various
orphanages of the state have united
in asking the good people of the state
to give the proceeds of one day's la
bor to the orphans. The last Satur
day in September has been set apart
as "Work Day", and all, both grown
people and children, who feel Inter
ested in helping the orphans are ask
ed to give that day's labor or Income
to the orphanage of their choice. There
are about 2S0 orphans at Thornwell
Orphanage, (Presbyterian) Clinton. S.
C; almost as many at Connie Max
well (Baptist). Greenwood, S. C; 225
at Epworth Orphanage (Methodist).
Columbia, E. C; GO at The Church
Home (Episcopal) Yorkvlllo, S. C.
These orphan children are being
clothed, fed and educated entirely by
the gifts of the people, and it is earn
estly hoped that a liberal response will
be made to this appeal. Let none fail
to send the wages or income of one
day's labor to the orphanage of his
choice. Make remittances by check,

The Cotton MnrkcL
Quite unexepectedly a heavy selling
movement broke out in the cotton
market this week, and under the most
aggressive kind of pressure values de
clined rapidly to the lowest point
' touched in considerably over two
years. This development came in the
nature of a distinct surprise, since it
was speculative conditions until af
ter the appearance of the final Govern
ment report on October 2. However,
sentiment in the trade has been over
whelmingly bearish for some time
past, and it is evident that those in
terests operating for higher prices
Iha^l become discouraged at the fail
ure" of the market to respond to the
reports of extensive deterioration In
the belt. Certainly this view seei 's
confirmed by the great volume of
liquidation that started on Tuesday
and which continued, with little inter
ruption, until the October, December
and January deliveries had fallen be
low 10.70 cents, or a loss of over $2.50
"per bale for the week. While the
throwing over of long y>tton was
Chiefly responsible for the drastic
break, the depression was accentuat
ed by further heavy hedge selling for
southern account, and rumors that a
prominent trader had again taken up
an active position on ?ho short side
also had a sentimental tffect. As a
.matter of fact, practically every In
fluence was against the market, not
only in a spoculntlvo sense, but from
a crop and trade standpoint as well.
Thus, despite the insistent claims that
the crop has suffered serious damage
from one cause or another, the South
has continued to sell cotton at every
Favorable opportunity. Close study of
the dally weather reportsfor the past
fortnight or so brings to light few fea
tures of a disturbing character: on the
contrnry, conditions hove apparently
been highly satisfactory to tho rapid j
development of the plant, and tho re- (
cent estimates of only 12,500,000 bales
are generally discredited. Moreover,
the receipts aro steadily increasing,
being about 175,000 bales heavier than
for tho same period last year, where
as, oji the other hand, both domestic
and foreign spinners aro still very
sparingly. As partially Illustrating
this point, the foreign commerce re
turns for August were of significance
?bowing, as they did, a contradiction
f a little over 7,300 bales In exports
abroad as compared with the same
month a year ago. Tho total move
ment reached 239,Lit bales, as against
246,736 In ioio, but for tho eight
months of the calendar year thero ap
pears an increase* of about 1,000,000
bales. With the declining tendency In
the option list, spot prices sagged to
lower levels in all markets, tho spot
quotation at this city falling to 11.00
cents on Friday, or over $13 per bale
below tho prevailing figure on tho
corresponding date last year.Dun's
POULTRY HOUSE IN WINTER

(Dy W. M. KELLET.)
Whatever Btylo of poultry house Is

when thoy aro kopt inside, give tho
birds fresh oarth occasionally In order
that they may replenish their grind
ing organs with pebbles. They should
also have dust to dust themselvos In
and be fed meat in some form, either
cut bone and meat scraps from Bome
nearby market, ar purchased animal
foods. A boiled liver from a butcher,
cut up fine, is excellent. A little
chopped cabbage or mashed vegetable
food with ground bones, crushed
oyster shell, etc., will complete a diet
that should produce excellent results.
Feed regularly every morning and
the hens will bo found waiting for
their breakfast. Hot buckwheat cakes
aud table scraps with a drink of skim
milk occasionally mako one of tho
best balanced rations that can be
found for a few hens. It la my opin
ion that tho fact hat a few hens pro
duce better results than a large num
ber is due in a mensuro to table
scraps forming a largo proportion of
