Atlanta Constituiion.
Birthday s are very common things
in this sublunary world. There are
sixty millions of the'm every year and
that means about one hundred and
fifty thousand every day or six thous
and every hour. Just think of it
every minute one hundred mortal souls
come into this world-to live and die,
for good or for evil-for happiness or
misery. As far back as we have any
history, sacred or profane, kings and
princes have celebrated their birthdays
with feasts and wine and song, and
even the humble and the poor take
note of their annual return. Pharaoh
celebrated his in Joseph's day,. and it
was on Ilerod's birthday that the
daughter of Herodias danced before
him and asked him for the head of
John, the Baptist.
I was ruminating about this because
today is a notable birthday in my fam
ily. The maternal ancestor has at last
reached her three-score years and ten
-the allotted age of man and woman
kind, and from now on every day she
lives will be one of grace. David says
that the days of our years are three
score years and ten, but if by reason of
strength they b3 four score years yet is
their strength labor and sorrow. Poor
old man, he did have a troubled life.
le sinned and he repented in great
anguish, and he exclaimed, " My sin
is ever before me." Solomon saith,
" The day of one's death is better than
the day of his birth." And Joh said,
"Cursed is the night when I was born.''
Jeremiah's life was oie o, loat ation.
The maxims and precetil of these old
prophets and preachers are wonder
fully teautiful and have never been
equalled, but great men are not always
wise, and even Solomon fell from grace
and died accursed. The man who
said, "Rejoice in the wife of thy youth
and be thou always ravished with her
love," forsook his own and consorted
with a thousand others of all nations,
creeds and colors. Ile reigned eighty
years and died a dissappointed, dis
honored, degraded and miserable old
man. But old age is not necessarily
unhappy. The poet speaks of
'*An old age serene and bright,
As lovely as a Lapland night,"
and another poet says: " The world
is vcry lovely. Oh, my God, I thank
Thee that I live." Our old age is very
much what we choose to make it. It
is a sad thing to be weary and tired
with the weight of years. It is pitiful
to look upon an old man who never
smiles, who has outlived all social
pleasures and whose company is neith
er sought nor desired. For the sake
of our neighbors and friends it is our
duty to be cheerful in their company.
We should sometimes smile even if we
have to force it. Let us grow old
gracefully. I have now in mind just
such an one--a hale, healthy old time
gentleman of four score years, whose
presence is always welcome and whose
children, grandchildren and neighbors
and friends give him glad greeting
when he comes. Ile will be missed
when he dies, for the world is better
that lie lives in it. His Christian faith,
his moral conduct, his good example
and his cheet ful disposition are a bene
diction to the community.
But I was thinking about my wife's
birthday. There are thirty-seven
birthdays in our family, and she knows
them all and never forgets them. They
average about three a month, but this
one of hers is a very notable one, for
she is the maternal ancestor, andl this
day fulills her years and crosses the
line. Seventy years ago she was born,
and not long after that the stars fell.
Of course they dild. Sevenmty is a num
oral of sacred significance. There
were seventy elders of Israel and
seventy wise- men compiled the 0O(1
Testament,. The Jews were kept in
captivity seventy years. The Lord
sent out seventy of his disciples to
preach andl teach the people, and
seventy years is the allotted age of
mankind. But, my wife is not old.
Time has written no wrinkles on her
brow nor furrows on her chdek nor
silveredl her raven hair. If the long
war had not intervenedl she would net,
look more than fIfty years now.
But the wear andl tea! of the war
and anxiety while fleeing from the
foul Invader, with six little hungry
children tagging after her, made years
of months an'dI weeks of days. Btt
women, especially mothers, can endure
more distress and suffering than men.
The maternal Instinct keeps them up.
They can suffer and be strong. It
looks like the motherhood of ten child
ren would wear a woman out, but they
seem to thrive on it, and late in life
they take on flesh and round up all the
corners. But they never stop work.
My wife haa made over five thousand
little garments and Is still making them,
for the little grandchildren keep com
ing on. Her reputation for nice needle
' work and making but,tonholes has been
long established, and she is proud of
it. She never istops sewing until she
loses her spectacles, and then she bor
rows mine. N4o, she is not old.

until he locses his digestion.
St. .'aul said that " The love of
money is the root of all evil," but he
bad no thought of applying it to wo

If she gets any she is not happy until
she spends it. The girls said their

She always was a free trader. I was a

she was my best customer. She never

r- PREtiSIDEN'T HARTZOG
STAYS AT CL1MSON.
e -
Trustees Refused to Accept His
f Resignation uui it Was With
drawn.
s President lleury S. Hartzog is to re
r main at the head of Clemson College,
t which was settled by the trustees at
t their annual meeting cn Thursday, Gth
inst. The first matter taken up was
the consideration of the resignation of
President Hartzog, which was tendered
I at the special meeting of the board
three weeks ago, The board was is
session several hours Wednesday night
and again the next morning, and
Thursday afternoon the following
statement was given out:
" The board of trustees of Clemson
College with a full realization of the
gravity of the issues involved, and a
sense of our primary obligation to con
sider only the interests of this great in
stitution, have giden most carefnl con
sideration to the resignation of Presi
dent Hartzog now before us. We have
made a careful investigation of all the
charges that have been presented and
given a patient hearing to all parties
desiring to be heard. It seems to us
that these charges are chiefly the re
sult of misunderstandings and have
been magnified in the minds of the
students to a greater extent than they
deserve. We can find nothing against
President Hartzog involving mortal
turpitude. We realize that mistakes
have occurred. We propose to remedy
L,hem.
" We have kept in view the absolute
necessity of maintaining and preserv
ing discipline in the college, while giv
ing due weight to all that has been
urged as to the relations alleged to
exist between the president, and the
corps. We recall the faithful, efficient
and satisfactory manner in which
President Hartzog has for five years
past administered the business interestb
of the college.
" Bearing all these facts in mind and
with a realizing sense of the grave
responsibilities resting upon us, it is
the deliberate opinion of the board
that the resignation of Presdei}t
Hartzog should not be accepted.
" Therefore be it resolved, That this
board respectfully requests and urges
President Hartzog to withdraw his
resignation and continue his valuable
services to this institution."
When the statement was given out
it was stated that it had been unani
mously adopted, every member pres
ent voting for it. All the members were
present except Col. Norris. The sessions
of the board at this meeting were held
with closed doors, and there was no
public taking of testimony as at the
last meeting.
After the decision of the trustees
had been announced President Hart
zog went before them and thanked
them for their vindication of
him and they expressions of con
fidence. He aid that since it. was
their desire that he should do so he
would withdraw his resignation and
remain with the college.
Thursday afternoon he was asked by
this correspondent if he desired to
make any statement for the public. He
replied in the negative, remarking that
he did not feel that there was any oc
casion for him to make any such state
ment. He said that he had all along
demanded the fullest investigation of
his administration of the affairs of the
college, and now that the Investiga
tion had been held and he had been
vindicated and asked to retain the
p residency he naturaily felt gratified.
He will remain at the head of the col
lege and will serve it with the zeal and
devotion as heretofore.
After disposing of the Hartzog mat-.
ter the trustees took up other routine
matters that naturally come before
them at their annual meeting. Two
or three of the younger members of
the faculty have resigned with a view
of accepting positions elsewhere, but
these resignations would have occurred
anyway and have no connection with
the recent troubles at the college.
LIliT ON THE ~QUEsTiON.---A short

electric lights, caught on fire, and in

GRAT MACH INE INVENTRI
An Apparatus for Cooling the
Atmosplhere In Dwellings.
Prof. Willis L. Moore, chief of the
Weather Bureau at Washington, has
perfected a very valuable machine
which should make the hottest sum
mer endurable in the most torrid
clime. It is an apparatus for coolhng
the atmosphere in houses and it may
be used for commercial purposes as a
cold storage plant. The machine it
described in a dispatch from Wash
ington to the New York Sun as fol
lows:
The gravity appuratus for cooling
dwellings, invented by Prof. Wilhs L.
Moore, chief of the Weather Bureau
patents for which were i ecently se
cured, was placed in operation for pub
lie demonstration today. The machine
looks like a cylinder stove, and the in.
ventor says it will in time come to be
considered as essential to the comfort
of a dwelling in summer as heating ap
paratus in winter. Prof. Moore saye
that the cost of cooling a given space
with tins machine is approximately the
same as that of heating the same space
by means of a e o or furnace. Be
iides this, the different uses to which
he machine may be put are unlimited.
He expects it to prove of great value
to hospitals, particularly for reducing
the temperature of wards in which
rover patients are confined, and in ad
lition to its use for cooling residences
rnd1 hotels, he says he scoliec the prob.
lem of individual cold storage.
Prof. Moore's invention, in addition
Lo reducing temperature, washes,
1leanses and renders the air dry and
iealthful. Hot air, filled with dust, is
Laken into the machine at a tempera
Lure of nearly 100 degrees and expelled
ilmost instantly at a temperature of
30 degrees and with its relative hu.
midity lessened by more than half.
The machine operates, as its name
implies, on the principle of gravity.
That is, it makes use of the differenc'
in weight between air at a high and al
a low temperature. It is, moreover
automatic. It requires no motive
power and is self-adjusting. Whe1
the weather is very hot the machin
works faster than when it is only mod
erately warm, and when the weathe
is temperate the machine ceases its 01
erations altogether. It is necessary t
change the machine only once a da:
preferably in the morning, and then
will automatically keel) the dwellin
in which it is placed at a cool, eve
temperature.
The gravity cooler, will, like stove
be manufactured in all sizes from
small affair corresponding to a stov
designed to heat one room to an in1
mense cylinder, corresponding to a dr
heat furnace and capable of effectual
and quickly cooling every part of
large dwelling. Ptaf. Moore only re
cently secured his patents and yestet
day was the first day the niachine ha
been in operation at the Weather Bi:
reau.
Secretary of Agriculture Wilson ha
heard of Prof. Moore's machine an
walked to the Weather Bureau fro
church yesterday morning. Mr. Wil
son was warm after his walk and tol
Prof. Moore he wanted to be "coole
off." He was taken to the rooa
where the machine was in operatio1
and a few minutes later buttoned u
his coat and remarked that he did n<(
care to be frozen to death in summeem
The machine .in operation at th
Weather Bureau is much too large fo
the room in which it is placed an
makes the room feel like the cold atom
age department of a packing house. I
is of the size intended for a hoapita
ward and was built for experimenta
purposes.
Prof. Moore says that as soon as thn
foreign patents are granted he wil,
make public the formula of the compo
sition with which the machine u
charged. lie said, however, that the
comp)osition contained no ammonia,
nor any of the usual ingredients of or
dinary freezing mixtures. T[he re
porter looked into a sliding door of thi
cylinder and saw a lot of little wheels
pipes and slowly turning machinery
which, Prof. Moore explained, all de
pended upon the principle of gravit
for motion. The top of the brass cyl
inder was perfectly dry, while the bot
tom was coated with frost and Ice, th
temperature of the air being graduatet
through the various compartments o
the cylindler, from about 90 degrees
when It entered, through a pipe at thn
top, until It was discharged at 30 de
grees. An anemometer placed at th
discharge pipe showed that the ma
chine was giving off 200 cubic feet ol
air a minute, or 12,000 feet an houm
The room in which the machine wa
in operation contained 4,000 cubic fee
of air and although the doors were bn
mng opened and closed every few min
utes the temperature remained belos
60 degrees and the room was muc
too cold for comfort.
Long year. ago when cotton wi
first crowned king, the seeds were coi
sidered a nuisance. Now the by-pr

cotton seed amount to $118B,000,000
