To the Confederate Met-orial Lit
erary Society: Although there are
now in the South Carolina room 370
relics and records, the receipts of
relics and cash during the past year
have boon loss than in preceding
ones. There is, however, evidence
to the vice regent that there is no
abatement of interest in the museum
in the Statv of South Carolina.
Among thr uibursements included
in the finaunial statement submittcd
is the purchase of 100 copies of the
catalogue issued by the Society and
the distribution of thern throughout
South Carolina. A letter or postal
card accompanied each catalogue,
and the responses show that the Con
federate Museum is growing in their
appreciation. In addition to the
catalogues mentioned, twenty more
furnished by the Society have been
sent to the press of Soath Carolina,
chapters of Daughters of the Con
:edoracy and to the State officers of
the South Carolina Division, United
Daughters of the Confederacy.
Doubtless tLo distribution of these
catalogues has been an appreciable
factor in bringing ie next annual
meeting of the Daughters of the Con

Washington, February 11.-Gen.
Otis bad another victory to record
this morning, aid though the action
before Caloocan did not result in as
heavy a loss to the American side as
the battle of last Saturday night and
Sunday morning, it is bolioved to
have heen quite as important in re
suits. Caloocan is ot) the line of
railroad connecting Manilla with
Malolos, the insurgent capital, and
it may be that this capture of the
first named town will make it possi
ble to advance rapidly by rail upon
the insurgent headquarters if it
shall be deemed necessary to force
the fighting and undertake the cap
turo of Aguinaldo.
The officials here were encouraged
today by Gen. Otis's quotation of the
opinion of credible persons, Filipinos,
it is understood, to the effect that
Aguinaldo no longer has the powei to
keop the ingurgents under his lead,
as this points to an early Bubmission
of the insurgents to the American
government. None will be allowed
to come to Manilla, however, until
they have laid down their arms for
good. As for Agninaldo, it is now
believed that he will refuse to the
ist t-o make terms that would meet
with the approval of Gen. Otis, and
that when the insurrection falls
through lie will make his escape to
the Continent rather than remain in

PHIILA)ELPHIAS BIG CLOCK.
It 1i1%* the Momipoly io Oher ThIngs 3e
The largest clock in this country
and the highest clock it the world
was started in the city hall tower at
midnight New Year's ove. All things
considered, it is the greatest clock in
sizo and importancein the world, al
though thera are two clocks with
One of these great clocks adorns
the steeple of Mecblin cathedral,
one of the finest old Gothic edifices
in Belgium. The dials ara forty
feet in diameter, and the movement
is much simplified by the omission of
a minuto hand.
It is likely that the big dials that
loom up over Westminster bridge,
London, in the tall tower of the
houses of parliament, are better
known than the greater time piece in
Mechlin. These (ials are six inches
more in diameter than those of the
city hall clock, but the clock is oper
ated in a manner now nearly obso
lete, though the timepiece was in
stalled as recently ns 1859. The
London clock has dials twenty-two
and one-half feet in diameter, and is
operated by means of weights, to
wind which requires the services of
two men four days a week.
The city hall clock stands 370 feet
above the pavement, that in the
Mechlin cathedral nearly 300 feet,
and the one in Westminster palace

Up to the present the city hall
clock has cost about $21,000. The

Shie visit to the clock story in the tall
tower one is astonished to find there
are no "work" to be seen. The poni
derous hands on the four dials are
operated by means of air under great
pressure forced through tubes, and
all four pairs of hands i're controlled
by one little master clock that could
easily bo set on a library mantle
The little clock, as it ticks the
minutes, received by telegraph from
Washington Observatory, in turn re
leases the compressed air, and over
each dial 400 pounds of hands are
pushed forward. The hands are
moved every half minute and the
jump of the minute hand from half
minute to half minute is six and one
half inches. The pressure exerted

Lancaster, S. C., Feb. 4.-Mr.
Editor: Through )our kindness, my
letter of the 19th of Jant'ary in re
gard to practical diveraification of
crops, etc., was honored by being
placed among the front columns of
your valuable paper.
As I gave your readers some prac
tical experience in pea culture and
the results, etc., I now wish to give
them my modo of curing my vines,
etc. I would start my mower about
eight or nine o'clock in the morning,
after the dow was off. Then I would
start my rake close behind my mower.
Next with my one horse wagon be
hind the rake distributing stakes to
shock the vines on. Then my fork
men beind the rake stacking the
vines. I cut my stakes throo and
one-half feet long and drive them six
or eight inches in the ground and
pile my vines about two feet high on
the top of the stakes, allowing too
vines to hang down to the ground.
When my mower stops at night my
vines are all raked and shocked on
Some of your readers may say
that won't do if there should come a
wet spell, but there is where the mis
take is. I mowed about live acres
the first day aid it began raining
that night and rained for two days.
1 never saw nicer cured vines in' my
life. I let my vines statid in the
shock a little more than two weeks.
1 then hauled them up and put them
in barn. I never saw nicer cured
vines and they did not shed their
leaves at all. I did not put my hay
on the market until the first of Jan
uary and it was impossible for me to
fill the demands an(d by the first of
February I had sold my entire crop,
still reckiving orders every day for
poa vino hay. M customers all say
it was the best pea vine hay they
over bought,, and I could sell as much
more right here in our little town if
I had it.
This process is a little exponsive in
regard to curing tho vines, but it is
the only sao way andl(] I know it is
much the best. My vines are per
fectly bright and yellow, while oth
ers that cut and let, theni lay on the
ground for a few days were blavk
andl quite a lot of thle leaves dlroppe(d

not take twenty bushels of cotton

M rs. Kidder called her talk a i"Jec

According to Mrs. Kidder, the first
mistake it womni ever inade was re
sponsible for the intiodnetion of the
uradlo. Some of the later ones, how
over, have not turned out so well.
One of Ihiese latter day onus is the
way they go to Work to denonstrate
their equality with ien.
"Women seei to thinlk that the
way to gain their own giound is to

into the cheapost commodity in tihe
market. If it had boon sugar we
could have appreciated the obvious
compliment to the sex. Still it is
som comfort that even in bir dis
grace, she was somothing indispensa.
"Another nistake of woivmen is
loving too much. Of courso, love is
beautiful, divine, and all that, when
it is deserved. Bit our sex is prone
to ivestigate. It is another of our
mistakes that wl t.rust too much.
