At Clemson Collego.
Wo had tho ploasuro of paying a brief
visit to Clemson Collego last Monday
morning. While waiting tho hour for a
professional engagement wo had a fow
minutes of leisure, and embraced thc
opportunity to attend tho chapel oxor
ciscs at niuo o'clock. It was an impos
ing scene to witness over four hundred
boys tilo in with military precision and
take their places for morning worship.
Tho exercises wero conducted by Presi
dent Hartzog in a most impressive man
ner. His brief but pointed application
of the Scripture lesson held up before
tho minds of these young men tho highest
ideal and most worthy motive that
should actuate tho appreciative student
in tho search after knowledge, after
truth. livery listener hung ujiou los
words, mid il is safe to say many treas
ure?! up his Hayings, Tho (plai ter ol' an
hour devolod daily to this exorcise must
make a lasting impression for good upon
tho mind and heart of tim young. Tho
moral and religious atmosphere that per
vades this institution is second to none.
How can it bc otherwise when 'ho '.'resi
dent and his able faculty aro men of
irreproachable Christian character ? ll
may not bc sectarian-properly it
should not, but Christianity, in thc I
broad, catholic sense, is inculcated,
..such, is tin" tone and sphit that perme
ates Clemson, and you can feel it in the
?cry air. lt gives tho boys an uplift and
plants their feet on the solid rock ot
right living and correct thinking. ll
makes MUN, and thus achieves thc true
end of all ?ducation, thc development of
a true, symmetrical character as thc re
sultant of thc training of the head, the
hand, thc heart.
Clemson can justly boast of a line set
of boys. They aro there, and of the
kind, too, that will some day make men
of the right stamp, men of whom South
Carolina may bo proud, whether I hey go
into tho army, tho navy, tho workshop,
tho marts of trade, or last, but not least,
the livid ami farm. They will bc able to
magnify their calling, get thc most out
of whatever their hands lind to do, and

in the following hmguago:
"Tlio Sonii-Centennial of tho founding
of Walludla is to ho celebrated tins year,
and the occasion is tube marked hy the
erection of a monument to tho memory
of the late Uon. John A. Wagoner,
founder and President of tlio Godman
Colonization Sooioty. Wo fully agree
with thu Semi Centennial committee
when they nay the Walhalla founding
colli?! lie colobratod in no inore worthy
manner, (ion. Wagoner, tho founder of
Walhalla, was ono of tho most enter
prising and public-spirited citizens uf
Charleston, lie was a man ahead of
Iiis time, moro in sympathy with tho
push and energy that ohaiuctorizes the
Carolinian ?>f to day than with tho self
contained conservatism ?>f tho oblen
time. Could Ins fellow citizens have
seen with Iiis oyo? at that time, or could
they have foreseen what has happened
since, there would havo been many Wal
halla? scattered through South Carolina
and so largo a number of sturdy white
farmers among our population that the
terrible days of negro domination could
never havo had a place in our history.
Vineyards and orchards, although they
could not havo altogether replaced our
cotton Holds, would have supplemented
them to such an extent that tho dispen
sary would never havo been hoard of, and
wo wouhl have hoon spared tlio ten years
of fuel ional strife that it has occasioned.
Many Charlcstonians who know and
esteemed Cen. Wagoner, ami many who
appreciate him more highly now than
they ?li?! in the days that aro not, still
survive, and will gladly contribute their
share to a monument lo preserve his
memory to future generations.
From thc seaboard lo thc mountains
