with paralysis a
ears andefeht months
practically confined to the house.
Though almost helpless and un
able to perform his desired du
ties, he never made a complaint,
and in his afliction he was al
ways steadfast in the faith of the
Heavenly Father. Always will
ing and ready to discuss the well
fare of the service of the Master.
During his afliction he was
nursed by a loving wife, who
showed a lifetime of devotion to
her loved one always at his side,
and always willing at a moments
notice to administer to him, such
of this life's goods as were
necessary to the comfort of the
body. The Rev. Adams is sur
vived by his wife, MrsAnnie Ad

The community as well as. thc
state has sustained a great loss
in the death ?f the Rev. Adams,
We shall miss him for his cleai
and concise judgment. He wai
always slow to make a decisior
on any matter. Seldom, if eve:
talkative, always willing am
ready to lend a helping . hand t<
his fellow men. But whom wi
love, God loves even more. So
Beyond the pale of mortal sight.
Thy soul har "own its way,
The pale blue ..lelts around thy fligh
And we miss thee more each day
'Oh,' how we miss thy tender voice
Thy loving fatherly care,
It's music made our hearts rejoice
It soothed our every fear.
Enter now thy Master's joy,
The crown that then hast won,
ls purest gold with&ut alloy.
Thy work has been well done .

CULLINGS OF STATE COLLEGE

Orangeburg, 'April 27.- Tues-,
day ApriLJ4th, the birthday of
Senator ^?^?Mtl^^Morrill, pf.
Vermont, fath'eTi?P "roe 'Land
Grant colleges, was observed by
the faculty and students of the
State College as agricultural day.
All other exercises of the college
were dispensed with and the en
tire force of workers assembled
in the chapel and devoted the
time to discussions of problems
affecting rural and city life in
the various sections of the State
represented. Special addresses
were made by designated mem
bers of the faculty and interest
ing papers were read by students
assigned to this feature oi the
conference. The day was most
interestingly and profitably spent
and has doubtless inspired many
ideas of community improvement
among all attendants. The day
will be an annual observance in
the future life of the college.
It is a notable fact that of the
887 students enrolled in the insti
tution this session, 897 came
from farms. This shows that
our people are lining up strong
on agricultural education. The
other trades and occupations of
industrial life are also well rep
resented. The students have
come from six states aside from
South Carolina, North Carolina,
Georgia and Flordia are well
The annual summer session for
teachers will begin this year
