COLLEGE EDUCATION BY MAIL.
Teaching by correspondence has been
a recognized feature of educational
work in this country for a number of
years. Some of the "correspondence
schools" have done good work and some
of them are humbugs. Nearly all of
them have confined their work to prac
tical branches, such as bookkeeping,
stenography and drawing.
A correspondence school of another
character has been organized in New
York. Its work is conducted by pro
fessors of such institutions as Yale,
Cornell, Columbia and Rutgers. Fifty
dollars is the tuition charge for the
course, and the design is to offer oppor
tunities to men who wish to do real
college or university study, but who are
unable to attend the institutions in per
son. Tho following, from a New York
newspaper, will give some idea of the
The School of Liberal Arts and Scien
ces for Non-Residents has opened head
quarters in the Presbyterian Building,
156 Fifth avenue. Students about New
York will be provided for i from these
headquarters. Another executive of
fice has been opened in the Times Build
ing, Pittsburg. Presently another of
fice will be opened in Boston, and from
time to time, if the idea takes well,
other offices will be opened in the South
and Middle and Far West.
The council and trustees give their
services without nay. The professors
who have active charge of the courses
arc paid for their services. These pro
fessors prepare the courses of instruc
tion, and to them the student mails his
fortnightly answers covering the print
ed questions sent him in the courso he
is taking. The professors correct the
papers and send them back.

Secretary Wilson says, ''One of the
objects of the law is to inform the con

quires that the amount of chloroform,
opium, morphine, and other habit form

claimed that their remedy did not con

Will Recommend Seven Mill Levy.
Gov. Ansel has completed his annual
message to the Legislature, and it will
be ready for distribution among the
members and for reading in both Houses
of the General Assembly as soon as
that body organizes, Tuesday.
The message will be read with great
interest this year by those who have
watched the course of Gov. Ansel dur
ing his first twelve months of service.
As already mentioned, he will make
some recommendations that will doubt
less create considerable discussion.
He will call attention to the necessity
for an increase in the salaries of Stato
officials, nearly every one of whom are
now living up to or beyond their means,
especially the governors for the past
three or four administrations.
He will also call attention to the need
for a now executive mansion, the pres
ent building being both out of date and
badly in need of repairs. On tho sub
ject of taxation he will recommend an
increase in the levy of two mills in or
der that the State might get on a cash
basis, and will probably endorse reports
along the line made by former offi
The entire message, especially that
part relating to the administration of
the Carey-Cothran law, will be studied

TAX ON WHISKY
ConMftlBsiooer Capers Decides That the
(Jovcrnmcnt Should [Refund Amount
Paid by South .Carolina.
Washington, January 11. ? In the
matter of the claim of the State of
South Carolina for the refunding of the
amount paid by it as taxes alleged to be
due from the retail dispensaries of that
State for the Bale of fermented malt
liquor sold in wholesale quantities, John
G. Capers, commissioner of internal
revenue, has decided that the evidence
obtained on the part of the federal
government would not be sufficient to
sustain the government's contention in
court and that, therefore, the amount
paid by the State under protest, $4,
525.01, should be refunded.
In reviewing the case, in announcing
his decision, the commissioner Bays'
"The claim is based upon two grounds:
First, that the tax, if due, should have
been collected from the individual dis
pensers, and not from the State, rely
ing in this contention upon* the decision
of the Supreme Court of the United
States in the case of South Carolina vs.
tho United States, 190 U. S. 437; sec
ond, that there is a failure of proof on
the part of the government to sustain
The commissioner states that he is
unable to agree with the first conten
tion of counsel for the State, as his
reading of the decision of the court in
tho case referred to leads him to the
conclusion that the main question de
cided by the court in that case was
that the S\ate had engaged in the busi
ness of selling spiritous and ferment
ed liquor; that such business was not a
legitimate function of government, and
hence the State, having engaged in an
ordinary line of business, should be
held taxable by the federal govern
ment, just as an individual would be
taxable under similar circumstances.
With regard to the second contention
?that is, a failure of sufficient proof
on the part of the government, the
commissioner reviews at some length
the affidavits filed, pro and con?those
of State officials, dispensers, revenue
officials and officials sent into the field
subsequently to review all of these
statements, and concludes that there is
a lack of evidence on the part of the
government to sustain the tax, and has
ordered that the amount paid under
protest be refunded.
j The decision of the commissioner dis
tinctly holds the State, through its dis
pensers, liable for tax as wholesale
malt liquor dealers where they sell in
wholesale quantities, and the revenue
officers will continue their investiga
tions along these lines. In the cases at
hand, however, in which the tax had
actually been assessed and paid into the
treasury, it was found that sufficient
evidence had not been procured to sus
tain the collection of the tax, and it
will be refunded.
It will be remembered that last sum
mer W. F. Stevenson, of Cheraw, came
to Washington and argued this case be
fore the commissioner, and Mr. Capers
stated at the time that he would ren
der an opinion in it as soon as possible.
Had the decision of the commis
sioner been against the State it would
have been necessary for the State to
have paid between $25,000 and $30,000.
The amount ordered refunded repre
sents only ono installment of the sum
assessed against the State.

Find MASTIC MIXED PAINTS thoroughly practical. Acombi
nation of lead and zinc in proper proportion, it is superior to any paint
made of lead alone. Hand made paints mixed in a can and stirred with
a stick cannot produce results like
Mastic Mixed Paint,
"The Kind that Lasts,"
Ground and re-ground by powerful machinery which therefore produces
a smoother, glossier and more beautiful finish, covers more surface and
resists the elements better. The cost of putting on poor paint is just
as much as for putting on MASTIC PAINT that does not have to be re
newed every year or so. The saving is all in favor of MASTIC PAINT.
