Orangeburg, Jan. 9.?Orangeburg
was visited by one of the largest fires
of Its history this morning when the
large, wain building of Clafln unl
vorslty, a negro college supported by
the Northern Methodist church, was
practically destroyed by fire. The
alarm was sent 1? about 11.40 o'clock
this morning and when the fire de
partment reached the scone, the roof
was a mass of flames. The origin of
the fire is a mystery. When discover
ed, the fire was. a soaring flame, ap
pearing to have been burning some
The main building was a three
stery brick structure and a very large
building. In this building were lo
cated class rooms, girls' dormitory,
president's office and other offices,
dining room, kitchen in annex, etc.
All of the students were gotten out
of the building In safety. A large
amount of the students' personal ef
fects were saved and some personal
property of the college, but the loss
of personal property was great.
Tin- large main building of the State
college for negroes, which Is a four
story building, was in close proximity
to the fire, but at no time was in
serious danger of destruction. About
two years ago Badhatn hall, girls'
dormitory of the State coljege, was
detsroyed by fire, entailing a loss of
about $20,000.
There was a stiff wind during the
fire, but luckily the wind blew in the
most favorable direction to prevent
spread of fire to adjolnlngbuildlngs.
Although the firemen fought valiantly,
the wind fanned the flames and the
building was reduced to ashes except
the kitchen annex, which was saved.
The fire was no of the largest oc
curring in Oral gehurg for a long time
and the largest fire ever happening
here in which only one building was
deal roved.
The building destroyed was valued
at between $7;"?.000 and $100,000. The
insurance carried upon the building
amounted to $."it),000 and the amount
carried on the furniture amounted to
$r?,ooo. making a total of $r>r?,ooo in
surance, Dr. I.. M, Dunton, presi
dent of Claflln university, stated that
the school would run smoothly along
as plenty of room would be provided
In other buildings for class rooms and
dormitory accomodatlons. Dr. Dun
ton stated that the administration
building would be rebuilt as son as
possible and that a magnificent struc
ture would be erected to replace the
one destroyed. The present Claflln
university plant is valued at over
$300,000 .

Prof. Chambers Ascribes His Success
to Intelligent Feeding, Good Care
and Trap Nesting.
At a poultry Institute, held by the
Colorado agricultural college last
summer, Prof. W. O. Chambers exhlb
Ited a Rhode Island Red hen that has
laid 200 eggs In one year.
Prof. Chambers keeps from forty
to fifty hens on a town lot and hat
to buy all bis feed. He koopt an ac
curate account of all expenses, anc
last year for feed, louse killer, straw
and all incidentals, the cost was one
dollar per hen. He uses trap nests
and keeps no hen that lays less than
120 eggs in twelve months. The av
erage for his entire flock is a little
over twelve dozen eggs a hen per
The average price in the open mar
ket for the year for eggs hat) been 25
cents a dozen. This makes at market
price an Income of three dollars a
hen for the year?two dollars a hen
mcve than the cost of feed whore all
feed has to be purchased.
Prof. Chambers ha? mads more than
this amount because be has sold some
of bis eggs for hatching. Ho ascribes
hiB success to Intelligent feeding,
good care and trap-nesting. His hens
are given dry feed entirely. He gives
a light feed of whole wheat and corn
three times a day, scattering the grain
in the litter.
He keeps before his hens all the
time in self-feeding hoppers a dry
mash made of the following mixture:
Bran .200
Alfalfa meal.200
Corn meal.100

Linseed meal.100

With this Is mixed a little salt and

money by raising and selling ducks
without water.
Do not try to raise chicks and duck
lings together; the ducklings will soil
the water till the chicks cannot and
should not drink It, and will gobble up
all tho food. The duck should be
fed soft food and not too much grain.
It has no crop, the food passing direct
ly into the gizzard, hence the impor
tance of having water at hand when
the ducks eat. Make sure that they
have an abundance of green food and
sand. When ducks are kept dry, bed
ded In a clean place, given plenty of
water and the right kind of food, they
grow like weeds, and rarely suffer
from disease or lice, though lice wll
occasionally infest them.
Keep the chicks free from lice. They
cannot grow well and fight lice at the
same tlma.
Old geese lay a greater number
