Orono, Mc, June 10.-Vice-Presid?ht

dwelt upon tho need of. education for
the young man taking np the business

'Slight knowledge will not enable,
the yoting man to assume the man

property or labor is everything with

'In 1860, we bad a Republic where
labor was satisfied, where respect for
religion and reverence for law and
order and a sincere attachment to. the
Constitution were strong. In that
year the proportion of the annual
wealth created In the country by the
Joint efforts of labor and capt' il was
one-fourth to labor and thrce-iourths
to capital. Sixty years later, the pro
portion had changed to less than one
fifth to labor and more than four?
fifths to capital.
Thu. proportion, to my mind, had
?much to do with our present dlscon

put them lp tho hands of capital. Mo

stead of loaning itself to the laboring

J?hn O. Calhoun and Htrriself a
(?y Hob R. W. Simpson, Published In
i 1897.) ,
Thomas G. /Clemson was born In,
the nity of Philadelphia, july 1807.
died at Port Hill RpHl ?th. 1888, and .
was buried in tao Episcopal church-,'
yard at Pendleton, 8. C. .
Mr. Clemson natilx feet, six Inches
311. bis features wert, handsome, and
B appearance commanding ; hts de- '
portmenl^and manners'were of a high
order, and be was girted with fine con
versational powers. His views and
opinions Were broad and liberal, and,
then* was nothing'narrow br con-!
tracted about-him; with all he was*
firm and tenacious in adhering to hist
conclusions. He was remarkably j
quick to discover and comprehend the
character of bis - associ?tes, and in
forming hts opinions of* them he was
almost alway* correct.
Mr.?Clemson -no doubt may have had
'his faults, and in ?ame .things he was
peculiar, but during the long time the'
writer was Intimately associated with.
him. he was never known* to dc a mean
thing or heard to backbite or speak
disrespectfully of any one. While pos
sessed of ample means he had no dis
position to spend marp' money upon
hlmr.cir than was actually necessary.
His greatest desire was to take car?
of bis property and increase it that he
might tho better carry out his promise
to bis wife, which was to found an
agricultural college- upon the Fort
Hill estate',' upon the very spot she
herself had selected for the location
of the main: college building. How
faithfully he redeemed his promise to
his dear wife, let Clemson College as
it standB today in all its maglnlfcenoe
Bpeak. Mr. Ctemson well knew that
the property donated'for the purpose
would not be sufficient, to bnild and
maintain Buch a -college as he con
ceived of, but having a firm reliance
upon tile liberality of the state of
South Carolina, he felt assured that
when tho necessities of the people,
growing out of, their changed condi
tions resulting from thc effects of
war. were properly understood and
appreciated, - hin efforts to benefit the
farmers would be recognised; and that (
Um state..would suppl?aient his dona
tion by whatever amount might be ?
no?er.s?ry to establish. the dream of
his Ufo. Ho reasoned wisely and. cor

Previous to the war Mr?. Calhoun
had sold their old home. Fort Hill,

son, Col. Andrew P. Calhoun, taking
hiB bond and mortgage for the pur

gage Mrs. Calhoun willed three-fourths
to her daughter, Mrs. Thos. O. Clem
son, and one-fourth to Mrs. Clemson's
daughter, MIBS -F?t-ride, who subse
quently married Mr. Gideon Leo of
New York. Tho mortgage of Col. A.
P. Calhoun was foreclosed and Mrs.
Clemson bought In Fort HUI, and di

Under Mrs. Calhoun's will. In 1871
Mrs. Floride Lee died,- leaving cae
child, a daughter. Only seventeen
days after Mrs. Lee's death., ?phn. C.
colllBlon of two trains on the Blue
Clemson, was killed near Seneca by a
Ridge Railroad. -The losa of their on
ly .two children was a terrible shock
to Mr. and Mrs. Clemson. Desolate
they mourned the IOBS of all tho.
brightness out of their lives; but un

Eventually, however, hla mind be
