Intended In the Instructions?Will
It be Paid?
Columbia, S. C, Feb. .">.?A subcom
mittee, composed of W. W. Dlxon of
Falrfleld, F. M. Bryan of Charleston
and C. D. Lee of Darlington from the
State house and grounds, has put in
a claim for $KLr>r>0 on behalf of Todd
& Benson, architects of Charleston.
Of this amount 900 is for a plaster
model of the State house as it would
appear were the plans of tho ar
chitects to bo adopted. The model is
The subcommittee asks the State
to pay the architects $12,000 now,
which is about one-fifth of the total
cost of the plans they have drawn
for remodeling the State house, add
ing xan eastern and a western wing
and a new dome. Tho remaining $650
of the $13,r>r>0, is for the traveling ex
penses of A. W. Todd, senior mem
ber of the firm of Todd & Benson,
wdio is in his third term as a mem
ber of the house.
The minutes of the meeting of the
subcommittee on September 27, 1911,
at which the members of the com
mittee, Qov. Bleusc und A. W, Todd
were present, say in regard to this
traveling expense item:
"Mr. Dlxon then moved that Mr.
Todd visit as many of the members
as possible, and us.! any means In
his power to acquaint them of the
contemplated work, at a cost not to
exceed $1,000." The minutes are sign
ed by w. w. Dlxon.
Tho details of the claim for $13,550
i; told in a special report made by
F. M. Bryan for tho commitco on
State house and grounds which the
' but! ? printed in Its journal Thursday.
From tho report it seems that Todd
& Benson <?!' Charleston were em
ployed as architects by the subcom
Under the terms of a concurrent
I resolution, passed at the last session
; of the house, the governor was au
thorized to appoint a committee or in
struct tho committee on State house
and grounds to employ an architect
who Wits to make estimates and plans
toward carrying out the recommenda
tions of tlie governor in his special
message in regard to the undesirable
proximity of the toilets at the lower
entrances to the State house. The
governor accordingly Instructed the
committee on State house and grounds
to take the action which the concur
rent resolution authorizes.
As a result the subcommittee com
post d of F. m. Bryan, chairman; w.
W. Dlxon and C, D. Lee, drew up an
agreement with Todd & BeilSOU, Char
leston architects, to prepare plans
and estimates for the improvement of
I the State copltol building ami to per
form such other duties as are usual
ly required of architerts. The agree
ment says that for the services so
rendered fees shall bo those estab
lished by the American Institute of
Architects. The institute has. agreed
that, "minimum charge based upon
the total cost of the work complete
Is 0 per cent."
A .w. Todd, member of the house
from Charleston, reported to the com
mittee that to cany on' his plans
would cost In round numbers $1,000,

Twelve thousands dollars of the
$13,550 which the subcommittee- is
asking for Todd & Benson represents
one-fifth of the amount they may say
is due them for plans for enlarging
the State house by adding an eastern
and western wing and a new dome.
The claim for $13,550 has been re
ferred to the ways and means com

INTERSTATE FERTILIZERS are made of plant foods, so mixed

the crop starved. The needed elements are supplied at the right

A prominent banker of this city

Knowing that you nre always in

In a good live business proposition,
I take the liberty of presenting to
you what seems to me a most won
derful business and In which, no
doubt you will take a lively interest,
and perhaps write by return mail
the amount of stock that you wish
to subscribe towards the formation of
a new organization known as the
Automatic Catskin Club.
The object of this company is to
? pcrate a large Cat Ranch In or near
Wilmington. N. ('., where land can
be purchased cheap for the purpose.
To start with, we will collect say,
one hundred thousand cats. Each eat
will average twelve kittens a year.
The skins run from ten cents each
for the white ones to Bovonty-flve
e< nis for the pure black, This will I
give up twelve million siv.ns a year to
sell at the average oi thirty cents a
pleco, making our revenue about
throe million six hundred thousand
dollars a year gross.
A man can skin fifty cats per day
Jat two dollars. It Will take inn to
operate the ranch and therefore the
net profit Will he about nine thousand
eight hundred dollars a day.
We will feed the cats on rates and
; will start a rat ranch next door. The
rats multiply four times as fast as the
cats. If we start one million rats we
will have four rats per day for Ottcll
cat, which is plenty. And then we
, will feed the rats on the carcasses of
the cats, from which the skins have
been taken, giving each rat a fourth
of a COt. Ii will thus be seen that
the business will be ?Oft-UCttllg and
automatic all the way through. The
c;:ts will Catch the rats and the rats
will eat the cats and wo will get the
skins, and the profit.
