Admitted to the Soldiers' Orphans' School
Four to the children of David McAfee, late of East Nantmeal, deceased, were admitted last week to the Soldiers' Orphans' School, at Chester Springs.  McAfee was a soldier in the Rebellion and was a member of the 97th Regiment.  He was injured during the war, which, together with a subsequent injury in the same locality, caused his death.

William Kates, of Philadelphia, a soldiers' orphan, came to West Chester today from Chester Springs, where he had been attending the Soldiers' Orphans' School, at this place.  He attained his 16th birthday yesterday, which event severed his connection with this institution by the rules and regulations governing the same.  A new suit is given each boy leaving the school and Mullin & Loomis measured young Kates for his to-day.
There are about 192 scholars at this school at present.
