Friday, November 2, 1900.
Next Tuesday is the day of the
general election. While in this state
our primary settles the question of
men to fill the various positions, it
is very important that ohr people
should furn out and vote in the gen
eral election. This is the only state
in the Union in which general elec
tions will be held this fall in which
there is no opposition ticket, but that
is so much more the reason why we
should poll it full vote next Tuesday.
It. matters very little so far as our
state an(] county officcrs are eon
cerned, but in the congressional dis -
tricts it is important so as to keep
up our representation in congress that
the qualified voters should go to the
polls and cast their ballots. We
trust, therefore, that the people will
take the proper view of it and turn
oil and vote.
We publish in another column a
brief statement of reecipts for Clem
son college. This statement shows
that $165,000.00 in round numbers
was collected from the privilege tax
between July 1, 1905 and 'July 1, 1906.
Deducting from this the amount of
unused tags, leaves a net income of
$158,354.03. The expense of analysis
amounted to $17,626.59. This shownj
that, Clemson has a surplus from the
cost ot the collection of the privilege
tax for the year ending July, 1900
of $1410,000.00. Counting the other
sources of income for Clemson the
total must be in the neighborhood of
$200,00.00. Taking the enrollment
ol' a little more than six hundred boys,
it. costs tile state about $300.00 a ses
sion to educate a boy at Clemson, and
this does not include what the boy
has to pay for uniform and board.
This is aln expensive college, but it
does seen to us that tlie cost, is it
little lore than it, ougit to be and
that, the institution might be run more
economically. There is no doubt that
it is one of the best agricultural in
stitutons in the United States, but
it would be better for the institution
if it could have a,fixed income instead
of a varying one, as must be the case
so long as it. depends uponl the privi
lege tax for its support.

Uncle Wilmot's Hen. i
Speaking of the intelligence of s

any season of the year.'' 1
This statement aroused the other a
boarders at once.

that, boy you?'' said the man with c

the other. "T ean testify to it of my o
