WHAT OF ITS FUTURE?
Tills Question IJnnermosI in Minds of
Mr. S. B. Boney, former editor ol
The Advertiser, now of The News and
Courier staff spent several days last
week at Cleinson college, reporting
tor his, paper the commencement ex
ercises of that institution, and i! was
done in good style, too. In addition,
lie wrote some good stuff about the
"situation" there, and in the follow
ing letter the future of the college
is given attention:
The future of Cleinson college scents
to he the uppermost thought in the
minds of those with whom I talked
while here, both professors and trus
tees. That it should he and is to be
made the great institution lor indus
trial education in South Carolina, sur
passed by none in the Sout.il and that
its influence and work shall extend
into every State in the Southland, is
the idea that dominates the minds ol
Acting President Rlggs, Trustees
?lohnstone, Manning and lOvaiis, and
all the professors, many of whom I
met and with whom I spent several
Of course, these men naturally think
tliat there is already a "real college at
Fort 11111," that Cleinson is already a
great factor in education in South Car
olina; they do not boast, but they
pride themselves in what has been ac
complished. Hut, their desires are
for larger things, and their plans are
being laid accordingly.
"Cleinson college,*' said Trustee
Manning yesterday, "is planning large
things for the people of tills State. The
scope of its Influence is not to be con
fined to the hoys who attend school |
/there, hut it is to reach out into every
nook and corner of (he State. It is
an agricultural college, and its aims
are for the agricultural developn, t
of the State at large. A great ot.,1
of money is to be spent on the farms
of the State in actural demonstration
of the principles being (might in the
college. The worl of the institution
is to lie carried to the very doors ol
Trustee \V. 1). lOvans says that Clein
son is already occupying a field in the
life of the State, long tin worked, and
which will broaden as the years go by.
"Cleinson," said he, "does not interfere
witli the success of the denominational
colleges of the State. It has aided
them, instead. Never in the history
of the State were all the colleges en
joying such prosperity; all of them
are full to overflowing; all of them are
enlarging and their prospects for the
future were never so bright. The suc
cess of Cleinson has encouraged an In
creased patronage of the other colleg
es. Knowledge begets knowledge, and
the ?'college habit" is contagious. The
trustees are looking to the future ol'
Cleinson; they are laying plans for a
greater college, one that will rank sec
ond to none in the South."
If there is any man in the State thor
oughly in earnest and whole-souledly
devoted to the duties with which he is
entrusted that man is the Hon. Alan
.lojhnstonc, chairman of the hoard ol
trustees. Mr. JohllStOIIO regards his
position seriously; he appears to he
thoroughly in love with his work in
connection with the institution, and
he is hopeful of the outlook. While 1
did not have the opportunity of talking
with Mr. .lohnstone as long as I de
sired, nevertheless, in the short con
versation on the subject. 1 was ini
pressed with bis deep concern as to
tho future of the college, its enlarge
ment and development into tho new
viines mapped out.
Acting President Kiggs at once im
presses the most oa&ual observer with
the fact that the welfare of Cleinson
is his chief thought. Prof. Kiggs does
not stay still very long at a time; ho
is always on the move, always doing
something, ami yet he moves not with
- a nervous energy, lint with the t|Uick
oess of systematic dispatch, knowing
what is to he done and how to do it
with greatest facility. Another thing,
he appears to he thoroughly in (ouch
with every phase of life on "the hill."
For instance, the other afternoon, 1
saw him in the president's office with
pH pile of papers about him. Very
shortly afterwards, I saw him on the
campus, "blue prints" in hand direct
ing tho laying of foundation work for
.f new cottage, and then, he knows
what is going on in the various de
partments of tho college work. Prof.
Rlggs has thoroughly acquainted him
suit' with the financial situation, the
sources of revenue, and the exact
channels into which the funds are di
rected. In short, he seems to he "at
the head of things up at Cletnsou."
in speaking of Cleinson's work, Mr.
U rgs w;is enthusiastic in his hopes
and beliefs, and anyone hearing him
could not hut catch the spirit. Iiis
confidence in the future compels ad.
nil ration, for it must be founded up
on an ability to bring about or assist
in bringing about the results hoped
"Clemson college's place." said he,
is in the forefront with all the agri
cultural ami mechanical colleges oi
the South, and, there is no reason why
if the present plans are carried out.
it should not attain that position."
Prof. .1. N. Harper, director of the
experiment work, says that his aim
is to make his department of the col
logo "the authority for all matters per
taining to agricultural pursuits." His
? sc lent force and the methods now
being employed, under his able di
rection, ar?' calculated to force one to
the belief Hun his ambition will be
CLEMSON EXTENSION WORK
For the purpose of controlling them
insects may be divided into two class
es, viz., biting and sucking. The bit
ing insects obtain their food by chewing
the substance upon which they are
feeding. Sucking insects on the other
hand obtain their food by inserting
their beaks Into the tissues and suck
ing the sap. I'otato bugs or beetles
are good examples of the llrst class,
while plant lice are good examples
of tin- second class. Hearing this
point in mind the Insecticides are
classified into (a) poisons and tlx
COUtuet sprays. When insects eat the
foliage the plant is covered With :?
poison which when taken into the
stomach will kill the Insect. As ar
senic is the principal element used in
making sprays, they are generally
spoken of as arsenical sprays.
When, on the other hand, the inseef
obtains its food by sucking, it is use
less to apply a poison spray because
the poison would not get into the stom
ach; therefore, another class of sprays
is provided for which kills the insects
if they come in contact with It or if
covered with it. These are known
as contact sprays.

WORLD'S SUNDAY SCHOOL CONVENTION.
Unprecedented for its cosmopolitan

1 expressing amazement over the size
and character of the Convention, lie
looked oil! over a sea of six thousand
faces on the opening night, while out
side the Convention hall a still larger
number of persons congregated, tma
hle to enter. Nearly twenty-live hun
dred of the olliclal delegates wore red
ribbon badges with the legend "North
America." Some live hundred others
wore blue badges bearing the names
of more than lifty different nations,
as remote as China and South Amer
ica, Turkey and VtiKtralia, In addi
tion to these three thousand olliclal
! and representative delegates from ev
ery state and province in the United
Stales and Canada and from foreign
lands, there were about seven thous
and uuolllcial delegates or visitors
Sometimes three and four simultan
eous convention sessions were inade
quate to hold the throngs.
A Mrenl Spectacle.
It was a spectacular convention. The
great .Men's Bible elass parade on the
afternoon of May 20 opened the eyes
of Washington to the virility and mas
cullnlty of modern religion. In order
that some members of Congress might
march In the parade, as they did. and
ti at others mlgl.t witm ss !'., Congress
adjourned early on the day of the
demonstration. Torrential rains im
mediately preceded and followed the
parade, largely reducing the ranks;
never theless live thousand men in
a bnunerod procession a mile long
marched down Pennsylvania avenue,
ami were reviewed at the cnpltol by
a throng of ten thousand persons.
All these inarching men belong to
the Sunday school, and the thought
I uppermost in the minds of many ol
thi' spectators who lined the side
walks was expressed on one banner.
"Where the men lead the hoys will
follow." A huge mass-meeting fori
men, witli ringing speeches by Rev.
Dr. Homer C. ?tuntz and Rev. Dr. S.
Parkes Cadmna, followed the parade.
At the same time two big meetings ol
women delegates were in session.
Another spectacular feature of the
convention was a great open.air gath
ering on the east steps of the Capitol,
when a multitude of people joined in
the singing of Christian hymns.
The demonstration accorded Presi

introduced to the cheering throng as

into sectional conferences. Especial

those of President Taft; Or. S. Parkes
Cadnuin, of llrcoklyn; Hon. .lohn Wan

Mr. Robert E. Speer, and Dr. J, Wil

The retiring chairman of the exe

Because of its size and representa

gates were for the most part middle
aged leaders in Christian work, and
also because of the m-w notes ot
world peace, world Chrlstianlzatlou,
and viril allegiance to the P.lble, the
convention will doubtless exert an
extraordinary Influence over the im
mediate future of all the churches.
