A Trip to Texas.
ED. JOURNAL:-On Jan. 16th
I boarded the train at Norris.
Argived in Atlanta 5.30 p. in.;
spent the night there,and bought
a homeseeker's ticket to Deca

And as I was going to visit
my brother as well as to see the
country, I wished to surprise
him. I had not written him
that I was coming, consequently
I had no one to meet me at the
train. So I hired a conveyance

I had not seen him in 18 years,
and my coming- (unexpected by
him) was a meeting never to be

lie nor his wife knew me, and
after fooling theni as long as I
wished I made myself known
by dr'opping some broad hints,
to which they caught on, and
at last recognized me. T Ien

express the pleasure it was to
me to meet again my only
brother whom I had not seen in
so long a time that he did not

agreeably surprised and seemed
delighted to meet me. And I
was also delighted to find my

The board of trustees held
their annual meeting on the 6th
inst., all nembes being present.
During the afternoon session
Prof. W. M. Rigg?, who has
been acting president. since Jan.
1, 1910, was unaniniously elect
ed president. He was called
before the board and his
election announced to him by
the chairman, Mr. Allen Johns
ton. Prof. Riggs requested until
the morning session to give the
matter consideration, and at
that time accepted the position.
He is 37 years old, and has been
at Clemson since 1896. On the
morning following the election
Mr. Johnston presented to 'the
faculty and the students their
new president. The enthusiasm
and joy displayed oy the stu
dent body when this announce
ment was made was much
greater than any one has ever
seen here before. No president
at Clemson has ever enjoyed so
completely the esteem of the
students as has President Riggs.
At this meeting of the board
of trustees President Riggs rec
omimended to them that an
additibnal story be added to bar
racks No. 2, to provide for the
accommodation of 500 students.
The president also recomiended
that a piazza be placed on the
front of barracks No. 2 for the
pleasure of the students. Both
of the recommendations were
adopted, and a sum of money
appropriated to cover expenses.
The board of trustees has de
cided to establish a branch ex
periment station in the Pee Dee
section, and when this is com
pleted establish one in the'Sand
Hill section of the state. Thest
two, together with the one at
Clemson and the one near Sum
merville, will complete a system
of stations covering the soil con
ditions of South Carolina. The
farmers of this section will
doubtless be glad to hear of this
The sum of $3,50 has been do
nated as a contribution to the
Corn Growers' Association.
A large appropriation has been
made for the Improvement and
development of the Clemson
farm. This farm is run in con
nection with the college, and is
making every possible effort to
wvard- beconming a modlel one.
