From the date of its establishment
Clemson college has been getting
into shape to fulfill its primary duty
of educating the boys of this State
in agricultural and engineering pur
suits. The fact is recognized that
there are many boys destined to fol
low agriculture in after life, and
many men in the State actually en
gaged in farming who could be help
ed and benefitted by carrying to
them the scientific facts of agricul
ture. The regeneration of the State,
from an agricultural standpoint, is
too slow when we, depend only upon
the agricultural graduate. In order to
hasten this process and to increase:
the usefulness of the college and to
extend its benefits to the greatest
number, the board -stablished in the
agricultural deparLment the division
of extension work and farmers' in
The men of this division have
nothing to do with the teaching in
the college, but are to give their
whole time to helping the farmers of
The force of this division consists
of a superintendent, a specialist in
dairying, a specialist in general ani
mal husbandry, and a specialist in I
rural school agriculture. These form
the basis of a permanent institute
corps and it is planned to hold a
number of institutes at such times:
as the farmer will be at leisure to
attend. It is intended that the ma
jority of these institutes shall be
held in the rural districts where
they' will be able to reach those most;
in need of them. - - 4 1
In addition to their work in in
stitutes these men will select a few
farmers scattered over the State,
who are interested in their special
line of work, whom they will visit
regularly and suggest to them im
proved methods. They will act, as it
wpre, as advisory -physician, causing
an accurate record to be kept of all
operations and results and .finally
publishing these in bulletin form."for
the information of others.

REPLIES TO COURT.
Denies He Sought to' Influence Coop

Nashville, Tenn., April 27.-Gayer-I
nor Patterson in a statement replies
at length to the cnarge, made by
three members of the supreme.
court, that he had attempted to
coerce the court in connection with
the decision of the Cooper case.
The governor at the outset ques
tions the taste of the judges' state
ment and declares that the neces
sity for answering is not of his own
seeking. He declares he said and did
nothing that would bring the court
into public -discussion, save his of
lal act of Issuing a pardon. The*
or declares that the Cooper

party disloyalty 'and holds
primary plan can not be
con as a menace to the court.
He as in reply to the statement
that the te for the primary was
far beyond 'the Nashville term of the
court, "Wi has that term to do
with the primary, if the Cooper case~
was to be held as a political asset?'
He asks the three judges who re-'
pudiated the primary .plan if they
would enter a separate judicial pri
mary, with delegates elected directly
by the people. He declares if they
would, the chairman of the State
omamittee has assured him that he
will reconvene the committee and
offer a resolution to that effect. He
says he will join with the judges in'
a request that such change be made.
The governor explains in detail
his connection with the action of the
State committee, declaring he has
wished to avoid any controversy
with the judges, but declares that all:
'effor".s to reach an understanding
werd in vain, and declared that the
flat usal to submit to any terms
w.iwarranted and an injustice to
mittee. The governor says
tension shall be confined to the ef
forts of four men. Every man in
the college and especially in the ag
ricultural department and experi
ment station will be called upon to
help in the good work.
Each paper in the State will be
supplied once a week with a short
article by some member of the fac
ulty, giving useful information to
the farmers on some pertinent sub
jects, thus, as it were, supplying a
good reading course.
The engineering department is
now preparing a bulletin giving a
number of plans and specifications
for the building of the simpler rural
school houses and stands ready to
advise not only along these lines,
but regarding all farm buildings.
Eventually a number of short
courses will be established at the
college so that those who have time
can spend a few weeks here, thus
getting the -benefit of the superior
teaching facilities. A summer wind
up institute, or congress, to last the
better part of a week upon the col
lege grounds, will be the clincher
to each year's work.
To sum up then Clemson college
is virtually throwing her doors open
to every farmer and'citizen of the
State. She proposes doing this:
By holdixg one hundred or more
institutes over the State.
By visiting in person the farms of
the State and advising with their
By sending her representative in
to the schools and encouraging the
teaching of agriculture to those boys
and girls who may not be able to
By editing a reading course for
farmers to be published in every pa
per in the State.
' By establishing short agricultural
courses for farmers.
By assisting in the betterment of
rural schools and farm buildings.
By holding a summer farmers'
congress once a year, thus bringing
together for instruction and the ex
change of ideas the best and most
progressive farmers of the State.
Up to the present the superintend
ent of extension division has been
alone in this work. During the time
from last November until the pres
ent he has, with some assistance,
held sixty-three institutes, attended
by over five thousand farmers. Many
of these institutes, though conducted
by but one man, lasted from three
to four hourk.

Got $223 From Southern Railway
Station by Operating Combina
Winnsboro, April 27.-Between the
hours of 11 p. m. and 5 a. m. Tues
day night a burglar or burglars
forced the wire guard over the win
dow in the Southern railway station
here, opened the safe by operating
the combination and took therefrom
$223 in cash, escaping unobserved.
There is not the slightest clue.
The window was forced with a
crowbar, and this, together with an
express book in which part of the
money had been placed by the agent,
was found afterward in a car load
ed with cross ties near the freight
station. Of the money taken, $185
belonged to the freight department,
$20 to the passenger service and $18
to the- operator. The night operator
is positive in his assertion that the
safe door was locked when he went
off duty at 11. The drawers in the
safe, which contained other money,
were not tampered with. No other
places were entered in the town.
