Spartanburg's Two Colleges.
Spartanburg, September 21.-The
opening of the two colleges, Converse
and Wofford, yesterday morning was
attended with very gratifying results
to the faculty, trustees and others
connected with these two institutions.
It is impossible to secure the total
enrollment at these colleges, as stu
dents will be coming in and register
ing for the next week or more.
At Converse college there was the
largest attendance of new students on
record. The opening was very en
couraging to President Pell, who has
labored effectively and successfully
as the. head of the institution for the
past several years.
There are over 4oo new students at
Wofford college, including those at
the fitting school. The number is

* The College Of Charleston.
Charleston,- September 21.-Not
withstanding the fact that the dormi
tory of the College of Charleston has
been enlarged, the accommodations
will be taxed this year, it is thought.
The annex is now finished and ar
rangements are generally proceeding
for the opening of the new session.
The college has steadily grown in
popularity with the interior of the
state during the past few years, each
year showing an increased attendance
and this year is expectced to show a
much larger attendance of boys from
up the state than heretofore.

MONEY FOR SCHOOLS.
mportant Issue as to the Dispensary
Counties and Those That Are
Dry. The Act of Igo4.
On account of the doubt as to the
xact law on the subject, it will be
ecessary to make considerable in
uiry into the method of distribu
ing the dispensary school money in
ounties voting out the dispensaries.
The conditions, it is stated, are very
eculiar. The school law, as com
iled in 1903, made no provision for
ounties that might be dry, and Marl
oro and Greenwood recieved Their
h'are of the profits as well as any
eficiency that might exist according
o the superintendents of education.
The law of 1904, approved February
5, however, provides that no county

iciency shall be made up in all coun

Regarding the question which has

ave voted out their dispensaries un
