Built Heating riant When He was
Trustee?Spent Much Mono)'?Be
lieves In Educating the >'egro to
Keep Him From Being n Paraalte
on the Body Politic.
Governor Bleose has been t criticiz
ing the legislature since ltd last ses
sion because of an appropriation for
repairing an old heating plant In the
negro college at Orangcburg nnd for
putting In a new plant In the new
building that was erected. This has
been his main criticism against the
general assembly outside of his gen
eral charge that they overruled his
vetoes. In view of this, a report
made by him and his co-trustees to
the general assembly while he was
trustee of the negro college, throws
much light upon the situation and Is
as follows, being found In the reports
and resolutions of the general assem
bly for the year 1903 at page 897:
To the Hon. J. J. McMahan, State
Superintendent of Education of
South Carolina, Columbia, S. C.
The board of trustees of the Col
ored Normal, Industrial, Agricultural
and Mechanclal college of South Car
ollna, reopectfully submit the follow
ing report through you to the gen
cral assembly of South Carolina:
We herewith submit the report of
the president of the college, embody
ing reports of the academic, normal
and Industrial departments, showing
that good, solid work is being done,
harmonious efforts being expended by
The Industrial department Is scor
ing a signal success, the fine exhibit
of the Industries securing a gold
medal at the South Carolina Inter
state and West Indian exposition
No better work of the kind Is being
done anywhere. There were 804 in
dustrial units pursued last year out
of an enrollment of 024 students, thus
showing that each student at least
took one or more trades or industries.
The students that leave this school
will be self-sustaining and not para
sites on the body politic.
The farm continues to make a good
showing. Farmers* Institutes were
held in fifteen (lf>) counties this
year, to the edification of the white
and black. Experiments still con
tinue on the farm with various kinds
of cotton and corn, and especially at
tention was given this year to pro
lific green stock feeding plants, with
The health of the student body
continues to compare most favorably
with any similar Institution.
Five thousand, nine hundred and
forty dollars and forty-seven cents
have been expended on the new brick
Industrial building. It will require
nbout $.*>,000 additional to finish and
place the machinery In said building.
A steam heating plant has been In
stalled in Morrill hall at a cost of
$3,000, which adds much to the safe
ty of the building and the health and
comfort of the students.
The president's report shows the
l ecelpts and disbursements for the
I year, an itemized account of which
has been filed with the state super
intendent of edusatlon. It Is always
subject to Inspection.
The president's report likewise
shows the Itemized needs of the In
stitution necessary to continue the
construction in hand and to run the
Institution on. viz:
Current expenses (approx.
by last year's figures) ..$ 4,468.34
Incidental expenses (ap
prox. by last year's fig
ures) .$ 1,264.31
Furnishings for Industries
(last year's figures) .. .. i.t?97.r.?
Physician and clerical serv
Fireproof vault. 800.00
Salaries, teaching force .. 12,.r>00.00
Reduced by Income, etc. .. 18,315.16
Absolute needs.$ 5,005.12
To complete and equip new
Industrial building.$ 5,000.00
State appropriation needed. .$10,000.00
Thus it wll be seen, as has been
claimed, that the Institution can be
run In a state appropriation of $5.000
annually when the buildings in pro
cess of construction are completed,
but we need $5,000 to complete the
Man Conghn and Breaks Ribs.
After a frightful coughing spell a
man In Neenah, Wia? felt terrible
pains in his side and bin doctor found
two ribs had been broken. What agony
Dr. King's Now Discovery would have
saved him. A few teaspoonfuls end
a late cough, while persistent use routs
obstinate coughs, expels stubborn colds
or heals weak, sore lungs. "I feel
sure its a God-send to humanity,"
writes Mrs. Effle Dorton, Columbia,

great remedy." Its guaranteed to sat

we earnestly request your honorable
botlies to appropriate $10,000 this
year In order that this work can be
completed and the Institution be
placed on the bates that the trustees
and president have been striving for
since its establishment.

* OLD EPHRAIM. *
I read In the Visitor of April 21st
the wonderful cure of the rich Alaba
ma planter Kphraim of fits by a tramp
who cut a lock of hair from his head,
twisted and plaited it up nicely and
bored a hole in on oak tree and plac
ed the hair in it, nnd pluged It up
with a wooden pin. Kphraim was fully
cured and rewarded the tramp with
a plantation and his daughter as his
wife. You know a good tale always
ends, and he got the woman.
Let me tell you what came under my
own observation. Just after the close
of the Confederate war, a large white
oak tree, some three feet In diame
ter, Btood on Reedy river above the
shoals bridge. The top of the tree
commenced to decay, and It had some
fine mill timber In It, that was worth
saving. I hired it cut down and as
the axman cut into it, he cut an oak
pin out. And at Us base, there was a
handful of coarse black hair. It looked
coarser than a white woman's hair.
I put It up, that was a Indian woman's
hair. I was puzzled to know what was
the object of placing It In the tree.
From the size of -tree and the rings
of its growth, Jhe hair must have
been in this tree over one hundred
years. The cure of old Ephraim of
his fits and headache I guess will solve
the placing of this hair In that tree.
