All of our denominational colleges and schools and colleges are prosper ing. M my thought that our ca pacity for collegiate education was ample before this college was es tablished; such is not the rase, Mr. President.; Our progress since the opening of this college is utmost n anomaly; 354 stu deuts have inatiicultteil; over -IH) have been refused admission for want of accommodation.

Now imagine some thous and paper bags tied all over a trrniie arbor, and it would cause you to question the sanity ot the owner. Last year he tried a few bunches, and was so well pleased that, this year, he determined on a full crop hot. u best for our climate and our soil.
