Now Professors Elected-Room for 150 Moro
Studonts Next Yoar.
donison Ooliege, Juno 20.-Tho last
chanel assembly was hold this morning
Dr. Ifartzog roviowed tho year's work
stating that it had been marked by a
revolution in tho internal workings of
tho college for tho bottor-a rovolution
brought about by tho good sense of the
student body. Tho unanimous verdict
is that tho examination papers aro the
host that havo ovor boen handed in,
whilo tho failuros havo boon fowor and
IOBS disastrous. In a most appropriate
speech President Hertzog thanked the
studonts for their loyalty and gave thoth
some wholesome advice.
Tho addition to tho barracks makes
room for 150 moro boys. This increase
in tho number of studonts necessitated
an iuoroaso in the teaching force, and
tho trustees last night elected tho fol
lowing additional teachers: Mr. S. W.
"Hooves, of Marion, assistant professor of
mathematics; Mr. Arthur H. Uryau, of
llariiwoll, tutor in English; Mr. J. K.
Hunter, of Newberry, tutor; Mr. Mark
Hradloy, of Abbovlllo, tutor.
Mr. Hooves is a graduate of tho Citadel,
of tho ?lliv?rsity of North Carolina and
of Cornell. Ho has been teaching in
M iel ligan and is said to be ono of the
brightest mathematicians of tho.South.
Mr. bryan is a graduate of Clemson
and of Peabody Normal. Ho took spe
cial work iii Knglish at the latter place
and is prepared for his work hore.
Mr. Hunter is another donison gradu
ate who made a (Ino record while here,
and has kept up Hie same nineo bc left.
Mr. Hradloy isa graduate of Krskine
College. He was a bright student while
in college and lias been a successful
teacher since graduation. Kvorybody is
delighted nt tho selection made by the
trustees, and these new professors will
(hui a warm welcome awaiting them.
We are sorry to lose two of our pro
fessors. Dr. A. V. Anderson has been
elootod curator of the Herbarium ol
Columbian University, New York city.
Ills work will be treating tho advanced
and posl graduate work in the university,
willoh work is done at (he botanical gar
dens of tho idly. 'I'llroo years ago tho
city bought, for a quarter of a million
dollars bronx Park, twelve miles out
from the cent re of the eily, for a botani
cal garden and for a collodion of all
plant specimens, experiments in forestry,
otc. Thei(> are over fourteen laborato
ries for investigation ami sciontilio re
search along botanical lines.
Dr. Anderson's ability has thus been
(1 ttl ugly recognized, as true worth always
is, sooner or later. That be is a man of
unusual ability all admit, and all who
know bim respect, and love bini for his
modesty and kindness.
The board of trustees of the li ll ive rsl ty
is composed of such men as Pierpont
Morgan, Andrew Carnegie, Chauncey
Depew, otc,
Dr. Anderson was also ol?ercd a posi
tion at Auburn, Ala. Clemson bas other
able, modest men who aro better known
abroad than they are in South Carolina.
Prof. Wm. II. boehm, who has been
at tho bead of thc Mechanical Depart
ment of Clemson for three years, and
who bas done much valuable work here,
was also called lo New York to take a
position with the Fidelity (accident) In
surance Company at a salary of $?1,000.
His ofllcCS will be in New York city and
tho position is that of general superin
tendent of inspection. Ho will have
nuder his direct ion quite a l umber of
men, who will inspect machinery and
make reports lo bim, then he passes on
tho advisability of laking tho risk. Prof.
Boob ni is essentially qualified for this
important work and the company is to
be congratulated on securing his services.
Mr. booina isa man of unusually pleas
ing address and will make friends for
his company.
(expressions of regret are beard on all
sides because of the departure of these
Quito a number of Clemson graduates
aro at the various universities of thc
Country taking post graduate work. Dr.
Hertzog advised tho graduating class
this morning to continue their studies
elsewhere if possible, ll speaks well foi'
tho college that so many of ils graduates
have distilled in them a desire for more
Work closes today and many a sigh of
relief will be drawn to night by teachers
and students. Some will be sad, too,
because there are always a few unfortu
nates who fall short of the goal. The
majority of those who fail here usually
have grit enough to take the work over.
The winde year's work lias been charac
terized by more than ordinary determi
nation on the part of students as well as
of toachGI'8. The vacation this year is a
we'd earned one, ami it is earnestiy hoped
thal it. may be enjoyed by every one.
Prof. W. M. Piggs has been made bead
Of tho Mechanical Departmental Clem
son. This is one of the most, important
positions here. The promotion is a
deserved recognition of Prof. biggs'S
ability, Whtoh is well known by all who
know bim and especially by Die board of
h?tateos. Ile bas been in the service ol
the college for a number of years. Ile
was not an applicant for (bc position,
and lils olootioli is therefore all thc more
Complimentary, The department under
bis direction will be wisely managed, for
he is thoroughly in love with bis work.
Ile is a man of much personal magne

Tillman Delivers thc Commencement Address.
Clemson College, .lune 21,- Senator
Tillman faced a large and Cultured lindi'
Otico to day and delivered a inagniliccnl
speech. Nothing could hlivo'benn marc
appropriate than thal he who has done
so much for education in South Carolina
in general and foi Clemson in len ticular
should make thc literary addi ess lo the
students of Clemson College in the
Opening Of the new century. Certainly

President llart/.og said in introducing
Senator Tillman that bo could Hud no :
new adjectives iii tho English dictionary
because bo bad been talked about ?0
much in South Carolina. Ho waa the i
fouudor of Clemson and bas fought for !
hor good, ulways being ber unwavering i
friond. i
Senator Tillman was at bis best. Ho
said in part :
"Tho ovil which men do ll vos af tor
thom ; tho good is ofton interred with
their bones.'! Tboro has boon moro of
ovil in my lifo than good. If I havo
boon tho founder of donison it is a groat
honor. Dut 1 do not wisli to indulge in
any solf laudation. I havo no desire to
claim to bo tho foundor of donison, but '
I have given it from its foundation my
heartiest support. Wborovor I go I am
proud when I seo Olio of these cabs with
C. A. C. on lt. 1 fool that ho is closo up
to mo. Ho did claim to bo tho founder
of tho school foi our girls. This state
ment was mot with hearty approval. No
other State can comparo with South Ca
rolina in schools supported by tho Stato.
What doos commencement mean ? What
is it that is about to commence or who is
it ? These mou of tho senior class aro
tho contingent who aro about to com
mence. Von havo struggled for your
diplomas and thoy aro roauy for you and
say now 1 havo put away childish things.
I am a man.
Tho Senator spoke of ids mothod of
preparing speeches. If I havo ovor said
anything good 1 novor havo written it
beforo or aftor. Ho spoko of editing of
tho spoeobos of Congressmen, showing
how all their orrors woro corrected. Ho
illustrated by telling how tho vonorablo
Senator Pottus ouco said: "Whar do you
got any sicli authority?" I don't know
how to polish un "my sontoncos in a glit

way and don't dosorvo a bit of credit for

week if a sinner liko mo should bo
allowed to preach:
1. What aro ;vo ?
2. What do wo know ?
ll, What can you do V
4. What aro you going to try to do ?
That is a subject broad enough. I am
going to put somo literary in it, but I
want to talk common sonso.
What aro you ? Wo all soon loam tho
beginning of lifo; wo soo its various
stages; but when wo ask whore aro wo

What aro wo ? Wo aro brought boro
without our consent. Wo aro carried
away without our consent.
What do wo know V You answor : All
that tho Professors at Clemson think I
ought to know to got a diploma. Dut
what do yon know ? Very littlo. You
don't know yourself yot. You may
mold clay into brick, but tho burning
must bo continued or it will turn to clay
Isaac Newton after unfolding many of
nature's mysteries felt that ho was but
as a child picking up pebbles along tho
shoro of knowledge. You havo had
"stickabilify" enough to got a diploma,
but you must continue or in ten years
you will not bo di li?rent from tho man
who dropped out from tho freshman
class, lt is well for ino to hold up tho
glass beforo you and lot you seo your
selves as others seo you. You must
investigate, solidify and harden tho
knowledge, you have tho tools now.
They aro bright and sharp. As soon as
you coase to uso them liko tho saw or
tho plano they will rust. Your brains
must bo used, lu order to writo and
speak d neut ly this grand old English
tongue you must begin a systematic
course of reading. You can't learn it
from studying dictionaries or books of
synonyms. You must read. It is a
great accomplishment to bo able to uso
tho right words in tho right placo, lt is
like "apples of gold in pictures of Bil vor."
I said you know very littlo and I ro
peat it, and if you don't continue to
study you will soon know less. You'll
go down to tho grave "unwept, unhon
ored and unsung." Shall wo go down
life's stream doing good or striving for
ignoble purposes i
You aro different from any other
graduates in South Carolina. While
your brain bas been trained your hands
hayo boon taught so that you can do
something, a thing that was ten years
ago thought unnecessary. I am proud
that (hero is a demand for Clemson
graduates. Every man from this institu
tion that I have helped to put on around
of the ladder bas bad tho grit to hold his
placo and climb up higher. Tho ninety
nine strive by fall means or foul to got

. What is success Is it tho acquisi
tion of these baubles of wealth or posi
tion, or is it tho life given to doing good,
devoted to tho welfare of State '.' If I,
looking back over my lifo, felt that I hail
over been bought, thal I had over been
gagged, I would not feel worthy to stand
before, you this morning.
True success lies in making tho best
uso of those faculties which (bid haw
given you and reaching that station in
life which true worth will givo. In a
moral sense it means to keep your soul
free from splotches, so that your con
science will not lash you as you toss on
your bed at night. And though you may
go through lifo without becoming a
multi-millionaire, robbing your fellow
man, according to all religious teachings,
your state will be better than that of tho
rich robber.
The. Hildo says that lt is not good for
man tr; be alone, way back when Adam
was a youngster. So he made woman.
If if were not for woman I would clear
out from this old world.
Some of yon say yon aro notable.
Adam and Hvo didn't wait to get ready.
They hitched up ami started out. Tho
woman is the. one to decide about that
question of ability. You want to have a
purpose in life. I don't mean making
money. That is easy. I'll givo you Ar
temus Ward's receipt. It never fails.
"Kiso early, work bard and lato, lavo
on what you can't soil. Then you'll die
rich and go to-." Ile a man; your
own owner, not afraid to stand out and
speak your thoughts.
Men who have grown wealthy havo
grown conservative. They loso tboir
manhood and lose their inllucnco for
good. We aro in danger of a central
ized government at Washington run in
the interests of the classes. I know how
tho wheels run and wboro thoy have
been grossed with bribery. I baveboast
ingly said before all kinds of audiences
throughout the land that the South is
the only true American section of our
country and they have cheered mo to
thc echo although I was assuming a
superiority. Many of our best men are
I roigncrs, but there are thousands up
North who cannot spoak our language.
I have said enough to you, young mon,
lo keep you thinking a month, but you
are going to dance it all away Monday
lt is a shaine that we should take these
young men away from the relining infill'
enees of their hom-s, mothers and sisters
and placo them in barracks wboro they
never see a woman except at a distance
loo great, to toll whether sho is good
looking or not.
Here Senator Tillman mado a plea for
the bettering of tho social opportunities
of the young men here. He objected to
too much straight laced puritanism.
Tho speech was well received. Tho
Senator was often applauded.
The graduating c lass numbered thirty
"sWIN'd ( Ol: N KUS."
Senator Tillman said in bis speech Fri
day that they ought to "slick up" tho
floor last, night so as lo havo it in good
condition for tho commencement hop Oil
Monday night. And (hey did. The
Sonator was present last, night ami was
in ono of his happiest moods. Ho ob
jected to too much waltzing and wanted
an old-fashioned square dance, such as
lia used lo attend, where they danced all
night and wont home willi thc girls in
the morning. Tho young pooplo finally
agreed. Mis. Higgs went up to the
Senator and Bald, "Now since you insist
on the sonare dance, won't you honor
mc?" lu bis impulsive style ho Hung

tho word and oallod "awing cornerai"

Mr. W. S. Whedon, Cashier of tho First
National Bank of Wiutorsot, Iowa, in a

a carpenter tu his employ, that will be of

had a carpenter working for me who was
obliged to stop work for several days on
account of being troubled with diarrloca.
I mentioned to him that I had boon simi

Colic, Cholera and Diarrhma Remedy

Sontoncod for Ion Yoars.
Mrs. Lula Trinco Kennedy, whoso
trial in Kansas City on tho charge of
murdering her husband, Phillip II.
Kennedy, was concluded last week,
was found guilty of murder in tho
second degree and sontonccd te ton yoars
in tho penitentiary. Tho verdict, al
though apparently light, was somewhat
of a surprise to Mrs. Kennedy's friends,
although tho killing appeared deliberate
and cruet. The caso was ono of remarka
ble interest and attracted wido attention.
Mrs. Kennedy is a little woman only
nineteen yoars old and an attractive
blondo. Tho marriage occurred last
December and it was saul at tho time
that Kennedy was forced into tho cere
mony, and positively refused to live
with his w ife or contributo to her sup
On January 'Ith Kennedy died a peti
tion in tho circuit court, asking that tho
marriage be set aside, alleging that ho
had been coerced in going through tho
ceremony. Six days later his wife called
to seo him at his o 111 co, Ho carno out
into tho hall and tho two walked away
from tho door.
Mis. Kennedy stopped in the hall and
put the ittestion:
"Are you going to live with mo ns a
husband should?"
"1 am not," was tho answer.
Scarcely had tho words passed his lips
when Mrs. Kennedy drow a revolver from
tho folds of her dress and fired six shots
into Ibo body of her husband. Tho
reports came so quick in succession that
it was hard to distinguish between them.
Any ono of tho bullets would have caused
death. Kennedy was dead before his
body leached tho lloor.
Tho self-made widow looked con
temptuously at tho prostrate form. She
then walked lip to it and kicked tho face
several times. Wbon she had llnished
this pail of her work she said:
"You will never betray another girl."
Thon sho coolly surrendered herself.
It is said that Kennedy's dying words
wore, "It wasn't her gun." Tho connec
tion of her brothers, if any, with tho
caso will 1)0 brought out in tho forth
coming trial.
A Good Cough Medicine.
It speaks well for Chamberlain's Cough

Loss ol Life Estimated from Two to Five I

Bluoflold, W. Va., Juno 23.-This
outiro seotlon has just been vin'tod by a i
Hood, th? extent of wbiob in all proba* <
Milty will equal or exceed that of
Johnstown in 1830, so far as the loss of. i
property ls concerned. Karly yesterday :
morning, shortly after midnight, a heavy <
downpour of rain bogan, accompanied l
by a severe olootrio storm, wbiob steadily i
increased in violence until 10 o'clock in <
tho morning, thou ceasing for several
hours and beginning agaiu with renewed i
violonco. This continued throughout I
tho entire day and night, and at 10
o'clock this morning, wbilo tho storm '.
bad abated, tho lowoiiug clouds indi
cated another terrille downpour at any
moment. Many milos of tho Norfolk
and Wostorn railroad track, bridgos and
telegraph linos aro ontirely destroyed
and communication is out off west of
Klkborn, so that it is impossible to loam
tho full extent of the losB of lifo and
property, but ofllolals of the coal opera
tions looatod in tho stricken distriot
have sent out messengers to Klkborn,
tho terminus of both telegraphic and
railroad communication, and have re
ceived a report that a conservative esti
mate ns to tho loss of lifo will easily
roach two hundred. Sumo of the drownod
aro among tho most prominent citizens
of the ooal fields.
The Pocahontas coal bold is located in
a basin with high mountain ranges on
either side. Klkborn creek Hows through
tho contor of tho basin, which ranges
from one-fourth to ono milo in width.
From Kn ii is, W. Va., to Vivian Yard,
W. Va., a distance of ton milos, minors'
cabins, coal company commissaries and
coko plants lino this basin. Klkborn

streams coming from tho mountain
sides, risos very rapidly and this water

basin botweon tito two mountain rangos
was flooded, and boforo tho terror
stricken pooplo realized what was upon
thom thoy wuro carried down by tho
flood, which swept everything in its
At Koystouo tho water began to riso at
0 o'olook Sunday morning, and by ll
o'clock tho flood had spout its fury and
at least two-thirds of tho littlo city bad
boon washed away or demolished.
lt is known that sixteen residents of
thc north sido lost their lives, and at
least fifty of those living on tho south or
lower siilo wore drownod.
At Burko, a suburb of Koystouo, a num
ber aro missing and eight, aro reported
dead, lt is now certain that tho total
list of thc dead from ono end of the Klk
born valloy to tho other will roach two
hundred. Hundreds aro missing, having
taken refuge in tho mountains to escapo
tho fury of tho Hood.
At lonst three hundred mino mules
woro drowned, and as many as twenty
five could bo seen swimming about in
tho Hood and making an unusual tight
for lifo. But littlo damage is dono to
mino property, as tho drift mouths woro
high up tho mountain sides. Several
hundred aro reported Hooded, but it is
impossible to ascertain tho extent of tho
On tho North Fork branch of tho Nor
folk and Western, which is Hvo and one
half miles long, there was no loss of lifo
as far as known, but. hundreds were ren
dered homeless and are now camping in
thc mountains. Tho damage to property
on this branch is very heavy, only ono of
tho ten collieries located on it escaping,
it being located at the head of tho stream.
In tho Klkborn valley il is estimated
that tho loss to tho railroad ami coal in
terests will reach into millions. Out of
twelve miles of main double track only
ono milo remains, and all Ibo bridges are
gono. Some of thom wore of tho heaviest '
masonry and iron, but they could not
resist tho fqreo of tho Hood. Tho
Cozor Company, ono of tho largest in 1
operation, lost a thousand horse power
electric plant, many buildings and coko
ovens. Their loss is said to bo $50,000.
Tho Houston Company is damaged somo
$20,000. Tho Tierney interest, consist
ing of four collieries, will loso $75,000.
At Landgraf, tho beautiful homo of
General Manager Ord, is report od gone,
but his family is said to ho safo. Pas
sengor train No. -I, of thc Norfolk and
Western Railway, reached Vivian Yard,
tlio western terminus of tho coal Held,
about 8.30 a. m., met tho Hood and was
unable to proceed farther. Tho waters
readied such a depth that tho coaohes
had to bo abandoned, tho passengers
hoing rescued by means of ropes strung
from tho windows of coaches to tho tops
of remaining coko ovens somo distance
away. Between Klkborn and Vivian
Yard, a distance of ton miles, 100 cars
arc said to bo washed away from tho
hacks and many of them carried down
the streams.
A rough estimate places thc number
of bridges woshed away botweon Blue
Held and Vivian Yard, a distance of
twenty-eight miles, at from fifteen to
twenty, and from present indications it
will bo impossible to get trains through
to Vivian and points west of tboro undor
a week or ton days.
This will render it impossible to get
rolief into tho stricken district, and with
thoso who escaped with thoir lives,
homeless and without food, indescriba
ble Suffering is inevitable.
Owing to tho fact that tho telegraph
lines woro prostrated by tho storm tho
Norfolk and Western ofllcials detailed
messongors by foot to cover Ibo territory
n? bout they oouh!. They returned in a
short timo with reports of tho terrible
destruction which had been done in their
respectivo territory. One of thoso mes
sengers, in walking over tho devastated
district, carno back and reported having
seen thirty-eight doad bodies. Thoro aro
supposed to bo many who will never bo
accounted for. The loss of lifo will pro?
baldy reach COO or ono, ami possibly this
number will bo swelled when fullor details
aro obtainable.
Tho Norfolk and Western Railroad
officials in Ibis city admit that at least
200 lives have been lost, Koystouo wiped
out and millions of dollars' worth of
property destroyed.

Does Not Think a Democrat will Object to the
Oath Required by Executive Committee.
Columbia, Juno 20.-A good dont ha?
recently buon said about tboStato Derao
oratio Executive Committoo rultug Sena
tor MoLaurin out of the primary, and in
the current week's issuo of Abbeville
Press and Bauner inquiry is made of
Col. Wilie Jones whether he hws any
thing to do with such au effort and cen
suring him if ho has, and oriticising such
Col. Wilie Jonos tliis morning said: Au
Dditorial in tho Press ami Banner scorns
to demand that I make somo reply in
justification of tho State Democratic
Kxecutivo Committee and myself.
Tho .State Democratic, Executive Com
mittee is com ?ioscd of forty-one mon,
including Senator Tillman, and is ono of
tho fairest and squarest bodies of mon I
havo ovor had tho pleasure of hoing con
nected with. I do not boliovo there is a
mau on tho committee who would bc
unfair to any Democrat in the State in
any manner, and each ouo of thom will
do tho utmost to do absolute justice to
ovory Democrat. 1 havo boon associated
with theso gentlemen for yours, first as
a mombor of tho committee, and now ns
chairman of tho com mittoo, and tho com
mittee has never dono a singlo thing t hat
liad tho slightest tingo of injustice. I
know of no reason now why tho com
mittee should bo called togothor until
uoxt May, when tho committee will moot
to oall tho Stato Convention.
Personally 1 have frequently said I
was absolutely opposed to ruling Sena
tor MoLaurin out of tho Democratio
party and primary, and that hoing my
position 1 do not soo how 1 could bo in
any way hold responsible for any effort or
suggestion to rulo Senator MoLaurin out
of tbo primary. I do not, however,
speak for tho committee, but, paren
thetically, I may remark, without any
breach of confidence, that Senator Till
man also is now opposed to ruling Sena
tor McLauriu out of tho primary, as ho
as woll as I think tho pooplo can at al)
timos bo trusted and cnn tako caro of
themselves and their interests.
As to tho oath to bo prescribed for
Democratic candidates, that in a matter
for tho convention Itself, but if thoy do
not prescribe a form then it will bo tho
duty of tho next commit ice to proscribe
the form of tho oath. I am satisfied
that no Democrat will object to sub
scribo to an oath propared by tho con
vention or Executive Committee of Iiis
own party.
You may as well expect to run a steam

onorgotic man with a torpid liver and you
may know that his liver is torpid when
ho docs not relish his food, or feels dull

ache and sometimes dizziness. A few
doses of Chamberlain's Stomach and
