Was Brought to a Close
Last Thursday Night.
A LARGE ATTENDANCE
Inauguration of President Robert Adams,
of Clinton College, Takes Place
Clinton, March 24.?The meeting be
?un' by the Rev. Dr. A. C. Dixon last
unday a week ago in Carolina Me
morial Chapel, closed Thursday night.
The impression made by Dr. Dixon was
clearly shown on Thursday night. The
chapel is designed to seat about a thou
sand, but by using chairs the ushers
seated many more than that. It is es
timated that thore were fully fifteen
hundred inside the building. Besides
these, there was a large number that
remained outside. The series of ser
mons preached by Dr. Dixon were of
remarkable character. Besides regular
evangelistic services twice each day, at
11 a. m. snd 7:45 p. m., Dr. Dixon con
ducted a special service formen on Sun
day afternoon and a service for chil
dren at 1:45 p. m. on Wednesday. At
10 a. m. and 3 p. m. every day'minis
terial conferences were held, the var
ious visiting ministers taking part. On
Thursday afternoon a conference of
college professors and Y. M. C. A.
workers was held at 4:30 oiclock in the
Baptist church. Numbers of men,
prominent in religious and social move
ments were in attendanco on the ser
vices and conferences of the week. Lau
rens sent a fine representation, among
others Hon. C. C. Featherstone, Rev.
Mr. Thayer, Rev. E. C. Watson and
C. B. Bobo. Greenville was also ably
represented, Revs. Dr. Cody and Dr.
Poteat, who are among the prowinent
leaders of their church in this State,
being among the Greenville delegrtion.
Newoerry also sent several able men,
among them Revs. W?lling and Ran
som, both of whom made addresses
during the conference. These counties
sent several representatives each.
There were visitors present from a
dozen other counties.
The Rev. C. Lewis Fowler, pastor of
the Baptist church, originated the idea
of this gathering and he expressed the
utmost gratification at the result. It
is his hope to make this conference an
annual event. The meeting resulted
in many accessions to the different
churches in Clinton and a decided
quickening of their spiritual life.
A very imposing event will be the
inauguration of the Rev. Dr. Adams as
president of the Presbyterian College of
South Carolina next Friday evening.
A number of prominent visitors will
attend it and an elaborate ceremonial
will be carried out. A good string
band has been engaged for the occasoin
and the co-eds will do their best to dec
orate the college chapel where the ex
ercises are to be held. It is expected
that visitors from the surrounding
towns will be in attendance. The Lau
rens people especially will doubtless
take a keen interest in the event.
Among the visitors who are expected
are the presidents of the other Presby
terian colleges of the State, the Rev.
Dr. S C. Byrd, of Greenville, and Miss
E. E. McClintock, of Columbia. Dr.
Henry Louis Smith, president of Da
vidson College, will also be present and
take part in the exercises. The Colum
bia Theological Seminary will be repre
sented by the Rev. Dr. McPheeters.

organized in Clinton and held its first
regular meeting Monday afternoon at
the Methodist church. Mrs. J. Groves

CLEMSON EXPERIMENTAL STATION.
Trustees to Separate it from College
and Locate it Near Charleston.
Anderson, March 19. ?The most im

ing of the board of trustees of Clem
son College, which adjourned today,
was the separation of the experimental
3tation from the college. There are so
many agricultural students at the col
lege that the professors have been un
able to give the experimental station
the necessary amount of attention. The
experimental station, which will be lo
cated near Charleston, will be known
as Clemson. Mr. J. E. Wannamaker,

work, is empowered with authority to

station. He will attend to the neces
