COTTON SCHOOL AT CLEMSON. th
In order to protect themselves of
from the loss by arbitrary classifica- .wc
tion and grading of their cotton by co
some unscrupulous buyers some farm. th
era of the state made an attempt to gi
inaugurate a special cotton school sot
for teaching this business, not know- thl
ing that Clemson College was already wi
well equipped for this work, which gr
the following letter from Dr. Mell er
explains. It is now up to the farm- ke
era to send up a small class of bright
young men to take this special
course that our warehouse system
may be prepared to pass upon the
grades of their own cotton. E

Mr. J. C. Stribling, of
Pendleton, S. C. fr
Doar Sir:--At the last meeting of J
the board of trustees, Col. Alan John. er
stone preseited to them your request tI
to have established in our textile de. ge
partment a pratical course in the
grading and sampling of cotton for w
the benefit of the farmers of the
state. The board referred this mat. eo]
ter to the executive committee to look
into the entire question and deter- t<
mine if such a course was practicable
without serious interruption to the a
regular work of the young men who
are pursuing work in the department,
and if the committee could find r
that the request of the Farmers' b
Union could be complied with to a
grant the same. The executive com
mittee held a meeting on the 4th if
inst., and, after a careful inveetiga- 9
tion, they requested me to write you 13

sample and grade the cotton his Ii
father propose s selling, The board
of trustees would be pleased to know
that the Farmers' Union contem- yL

positions to the furmers' sons who "'
are every year oraduating in the
textile courses of Clemson College. it

men from the farms and the cotton j
mills of the state to take special er
courses in the tertile department if ti
they are not able to find the time
and money to take the four years' pi
degree course. This short course li
will prepare young 'nen for the work Is
