The terra cotta drain pipe on the
east side of Harby avenue, which was
laid about two years ago, has been
dug up and is being relald on a high?
er level. This was made necesasry
by the fact that when the sewer pipe
was put down on Calhoun street the
Harby avenue storm drain pipe was
cut off and plugged because it was
on the same level and interfered with
the sewer line. Nothing was said
about this change and no steps taken
to remedy the trouble until the storm
water backed up on their lots caused
the Harby avenue people to Inquire
and kick. The drain was much need?
ed, and was secured after much ef?
fort, and they wore not willing to
have it rendered useless without a

CLEMSOX TEXTILE SCHOOL.
Celmson College, Jan. 13.?A re?
cent number of the American Wool
and Cotton Reporter has an excellent
write-up, well illustrated, of the tex?
tile department at Clemson College.
A few facts extracted from the article
concerning the work of the textile
school as at present conducted,
should be of interest, because of the
part it is playing in training young
men in cotton mill work and because
the work of the school as at present
organized has never been published
in the press.
The Clemson Textile School Is the
oldest of the Southern textile schools,
having been established in 1898. It
Is run as a department of Clemson
Agricultural College. The first di?
rector of the school was Prof. J. H.?
M. Beaty, who was succeeded by
Prof. C. S. Doggett, the present di?
The four-year college course In the
textile school Is designed to give the
student a general education as well
as special training in textiles, and
leads to the degree of Bachelor of
Science. In this course, aside irom
the purely textile subjects, which oc?
cupy the last two years very largely,
the student Is given good training
In the mathematics through calculus,
four years of English and literature,
history and political economy, chem?
istry, physics, mechanism and me?
chanics, steam and mechanical draw?
ing, wood, forge, foundry and ma?
chine work. The faculty of the en?
tire College aids the facility of the
Textile school in this work. The
work in textile industry proper is
carried out under the heads of card?
ing and spinning, designing and
weaving, textile chemistry anil dye?
ing, each under an instructor who
has had considerable mill exp? ri"M<
along his special line of work.
To meet the requirements of those
who have neither time nor education
to enter college regularly for a four
years' course, but who have had mill
experience, a special two-year course
is given. This Is essentially similar
to the courses open to mill operatives
In textile BChOOll located in mill
towns. Those who are proficient in
arithmetic and can express them?
selves clearl} in writing. and who
have had at least (me year's experi?
ence in a mill, and are eighteen years
of age, are admitted. The work in
this course Is in carding and spin?
ning and weaving, together with
some work in English, mathematics
Recently there has been establish?
ed a course In cotton grading, design
ed for persons of mature age who are
interested in buying or ware housing
of cotton. This begins at the opening
of the second term in January and
continues for six or more weeks de?
pending upon the proficiency of the
student. Several hundred "sample
bales" are graded. At present this
is the only textile school having such
A special post-graduate course, de?
signed for those wishing an extended
course in cotton manufacture, de?
signing, dyeing, or industrial year
college ccurse, with the addlton of
such related subjects as will lead to
the proper understanding of Indus?
trial affairs. The subjects include
combmg, mule spinning, mill con?
struction and organization, Jacquard
weaving and building of Jacquard
harness, loom fixing, designing dye?
ing, manufacture and technical ana?
lysis of chemical and other products
used in textile industry, the sociology
of mill life, welfare work, and labor
The leader In point of time of
establishment, the Clemson Textile
't hool still tries to lead the Southern
schools In the breadth and efficiency
of Its work, and Is doing a great work
for the cotton industry in the South.
Many of her graduates hold leading
places in the cotton mill work of this
and other Southern States.
