chidstmas Holiday Act.
There is a little two-line act that
-has gone from the Governor's office to
the officiat files in the office of the sec
retary of state. While there are only
two lines in the entire act it repre
sents one of the hardest and most
peculiar fights of the recent session
of the general assembly. Even after
the hill had passed both houses there
was an effort made to have the bill
vetoed, but this was refused. The bill
as adopted reads:
An act to set apart and establish
Christmas -holidays for the state in
stitutions of higher learning in the
state of South Carolina:
Section 1, Be it enacted by the gen
eral assembly of the state of South
Carolina, That all state colleges shall
suspend exercises-for a period not ex
ceeding ten days, including the time
required for going from and return
ing to said colleges, said period to in
elude Christmas day and New Year's
Approved the 17th day of February,
A. D. 1906.
While the bill applies to all state
colleges, it was intended to reach the
Winthrop situation. All of the other
state colle~ges -have been giving
Christmas holidays along the lines in
dicated in the act just adopted.

and finally all got under the table.
The jokers had only to remain in
their eraniped position a few minutes
before they heard the unsteady feet
of the waiter along the passage. The
darkened-room amazed him, and the
cold air from-the window seemed to
