THK FORMKMOST MISSISSIPPI TROl'RLK.
(Continued from Pago 9.) number of students since his connection with the College. The growth of the College has not kept pace, for Instance, with development In tho common schools during the years Mr. Hardy has been President. Mississippi, owing to increased prosperity and to new alms among her people, was ready for greater things; and the Agricultural College was In Mississippi, so shared in the general development. Here Is a fact that every one of my readers can testify to: It would he foolish for those who have done most to build up The Southern Farm Garotte to claim that It was their work alone that has built up this paper. There are thousands of farmers who have helped, and they are helping to-day. The Garotte has a drcnlatlon and performs a mission to-day that was not dreamed of by anybody a few years ago. Its old renders and thousands of new ones can testify to this. Tho Garotte and the College In a general way are working on similar lines—on agriculture; and the growth of tho College has not kept up with the growth of The Gaxotto, though through The Ga rotte the College has been advertised to perhaps a greater extent than any other college In the country. ji All Institution* that have to do with the public hare been caught In the general development, and no man can say that hi* superior ability ba* done all that ha* been done to build up any great enterprise he may be connected with. Development Is In the air: and those who assert that the College has grown In spite of President Hardy, can point to general conditions na giving seme appearance of truth to their assertion When the educational giant of di-foot Mature shrinks to four fret, ami we realise that It la the general development ami progress of the people of Mississippi that have hultt up the Agricultural College. we mav well ask what great things President Hardy ha* done. He must fall hark on his general fitness for his j-o*|t|on. rather than what he ha* really done, to keep himself In his position HI* general fitness I* such that many able members of the faculty would bo forced out If he remained and many of the student* *o dislike him that they would not want to attend the Coll«»g«* while he was there These are facts, fact* that Governor Noel tried hard to conceal during the June Investigation hut fact* non* the less facts that the Hoard of Trustees can learn much more about If they want to J* General Garllngton. who. as a representative of the War Department made an Investigation of the dismissal of Capt Wrlborn by President Hardy, and whom President Hardy has pointed to a* sustaining President Hardy, reported to his department, that “The relief of Capt. Wei bom a* commandant by the President of the Institution mu arbitrary and abrupt.** General Garllngton. after telling what Capt. Wrlborn** pn*H»o« at the College waa. said, that “This relation should have pioterted him from any situation tending to dcMroy his prestige as pro feasor of military aft ami science. In my opinion, the President before relieving him as command ant should have given Capt. Wrlborn an opportunity to appear before him and evplaln. If he could, the circumstances which caused the dissatisfac tion tm the part of the l»rrsldenl.“ This matter may cotne up later, hut enough ha* lu*cn stated now to *how that General Garllngton whom Pre*i dent Hardv ha* often referred to a* *upportlng President Hardy, consider ed President Hardy arbitrary and abrupt There are those »hn nre In a position In know from what they saw and heard personal!v, that many more fart* would hate come out nl the Jtjne Investigation If It had been permitted Governor Nod w*n»ld ohjert over-awe member* of the fortuity and make them sup|M>rt the rl’ealdmt, lfnrdy with letters that were used hy l*re«tdrnl Hanty In an attempt to over-awe member* of of the faculty anil make them support the IVewldenf. objected to evidence a number of time*. A* C'halrmnn of the Board of Trustee* and a* Governor. Mr Noel could more successfully obstruct the drawing out of fact* than could any other member of the Board That President Hardy Is arbitrary, was one of the charges made against him at the June Investigation; and whatever related to hi* arbi trary conduct, was permissible ns evidence, and should have been allowed to be Introduced for the Information of the llonrd of Trustees, who were to pass on the charge The tax payers had a right to full Information, even If Governor Noel did tint want It. The favored few- will, of course hunt for excuses for Governor Noel; but ! am going to put n few, out of a larger number of facts before the people In n wny that the people themselves cart Judge of Governor Noel's motives and arts That Is fairest to all. When Professor Mooring, of the Horticultural Department, was on the witness land, he was asked; "Are you consulted by the President In reference to the management of your department?” Governor Noel ruled It out ns "Incompetent." An answer to the question might have shown that President Hardy put a man to work In the department of the wit ness, without consulting Professor Mooring, which would have been arbl trary. Professor Kerr, of the poultry Department, when on the witness i.land, was asked: "Mr. Kerr, have you been allowed ko conduct your work as you believe for the best Interest of your department?” Governor Noel ruled that out na "Incompetent.” Mr. Kerr, as a practical poultry man, might In his answer have shown that he had good reasons for say ing President Hardy would not permit good work to be done; and that would have borne on whether President Hardy Is arbitrary. The same witness was nsked: "Have you had occasion In the administration of your department, to make any complaint In reference to Interference from any one above you?” Governor Noel would not nllow the question to be an swered because Professor Hutchinson, one of the two men above Professor Kerr, was not present, though President Hardy, another above Professor Kerr, was present. Governor Noel did not request Professor Hutchinson to be sent for. ns he had in cases when the Governor wanted Information from somebody who was nbsent. When Mr. Ward, a student who had re cently been graduated, was on the stand, was asked by (’apt Welborn, Why were you unable to get students last night who were willing to be Introduced by me ns witnesses to testify In this case?" Governor Noel ruled It out ns "Incompetent.” The answer might hare tobl where there was testimony to he had that would have shown President Hardy arbitrary, and that the students did not dare to give evidence thnt would displease him and thereby lose their favored positions.

KOIIKUTHON. (Answered by T. II Parker.) It has been the custom with a number of farmers In the vicinity of Ualelgh to allow their crimson clover to mature before rutting and save the feed from It. feeding the straw to cattle without bad effects. 1 think It would be advisable for Mr Kobertson to pursue the same plan By storing the hay In a barn until thoroughly dry and tosHlng u about with a fork the seed will fall out and can he easily saved In that way.
