This held will be large enough for lour games of baseball to be played ?it one time without interfering with .ach other. The iden of having such in immense Held is lo give every boy in opportunity to take part in lire mil lel irs, not merely as a bench warmer il cheer leader, hut as au ad i vi- con testant . And the beauty of the proposition is that art and utilitarianism go lo ge! her. Kur tho present large ath letic Held will not be neglected, but will be transformed into a beautiful formal gurdon, with fountains und lovely flowers. In this way Clemson has progressed wonderfully in thc last few years. At first the campus was indeed a raw spectacle, but now it is being rounded out into beautiful condition and the nulli who attend here may get an idea of the beautiful and the orderly us well ns tho simply rugged and big. I'rof. Dogged, whose portrait ap pears in this issue, is a grout friend of Anderson and ot thu Y. M. C. A. of this city. He has given a great deal of assistance in getting the textile night school on Its feet. The young men whose portraits ap pear in this issue ure members of the graduating class.

The Intelligencer ls indebted for many courtesies to tho registrar. Mr. Jus. C. Littlejohn, to Prof. Doggett und Mr. S. S. Uhlenberg, the publicist of the agricultural department. SPRUCE VP THE CITY The Intelligencer hus consistently worked for everything that worked for the betterment of the condition of the city. We have a vision of an Ander son that in ten years will he the nioBt substantial city in the Suite. We feel sure that we will not be disappoint ed. With his hope impelling us, this paper has advocated such progressive steps as grunting concessions to thc Hell Telephone Company to get thc building of a handsome new home here; und to the Southern Public Util ities Company to get a good contract for lights und water while the citj may save its potential investing mar gin to pave the streets. In view of our support of these things we trust that we may not bi considered Impatient when we call attention to the deplorable conditio! of thu streets as left hy the Hell peo pie; ami to our disappointment witt one pliase of the White Way. Along with nearly all other peoph of the elty, we are pleased with th? White Way, In fact ure proud of lt. Hut we must say that the purpose li putting in the white way wus to ge rid of the unsightly old cypress poles Other cities that hayo white ways hav< been given cast iron poles and wi must have them. And the Hell people were given thi right to put their wires ander tin ground in order to permit the remove of old poles. Therefore, as these wen steps towards beautifying the city, w< call upon Hie Southern Public I Jilli tics company to help thc city in tba respect and to do something to gc rid of these poles. And wo call upoi (the Bell Telephone. Company to com ply with its contract and to put th si reels in nt least as good order a they were found at flrsl; otherwise w shall appeal to the railroad cominis rion to deny the company the rlgh lo make any changes in thc rates her until tho si reels of tho city are re speeted. And we Insist Hint this be done a once as the city will be filled with vis Hors next week, men from many ci Hes, representing the progressiv thought of the State.

In the fall le guminous crops were sown as winter cover crops, since soil building by the use of cover crops is one ot the outstanding principies of thc farm demonstration work in South Caro lina. These cover erops were turned under this spring and the land ls be ing planted in cotton and corn. Pre paratory to planting, the children were instructed in the use of ferti lizers. A thorough crop rotating system has been prepared by W. V/. Long, state agent of demonstration and superin tendent of the extension division of Clemson college who has charge of the work. Each school is required Lo ' follow lils three year rotation. After this year the work will be ex panded. It is planned to he put into ' the course some simple instruction in ! the elements of animal industry, enough to teach tho children to dis tinguish types of animals, tn under stand something of feeding and the simpler principles of breeding, with some work in dairying also. The Held* ! crop work will of course he carried ; on next year In addition to the live ' dtock work. 1 It is planned the third year to be gin instructions in plant diseases and 1 insect pests; teaching the children thc methods .of eradicating or con ! trolling thc more common insect and tungus troubles which annoy tho far mer.

The derision was announced by Jus tice Hughes, Justices Pitney and Lur tou dissenting. The casu arose out of thc complaint liv the Shrevesport (Louisiana) mendiants that the Tex as railroad commission hud shut them nu! nf all Texas business by com pelling Hie railroads to rjeduce Texas Stale ?ates far below what the inter siae commerce commission bilowed Hie railroads running from Shreves port o Texas cities to charge. Tin- court first decided that ewe^r^ss had power to control interstate .. nar ges over an interstate i.arrier to the extent necessary to prevent injurious discrimination against interstate traf ile. ?iud thtii held that congress had conferred lab power upon the inter state commerce commission. "The fact that carriers are instru ments of intra-state commerce as well as of int en late commerce," said Jus tice Hughes, "dose not derogate from Hie complete mid paramount author ity of congress over the latter or preclude the Federal power from be ing exerted to prevent Hie interstate operations of such carrires from ho ing made a means of injury which hus been confided to Federal care. "Wherever the interstate and intra state transactions of carriers are so alongside of whom he has worked, he llas met none who was a sweeter spir it, a more kindly gentleman, a more lovable character, than Mr. Norryce. His sainted mother was generally de clared to have been ono of the sweet est women that Anderson has ever known, and this young man inherited her lovely disposition in so many ways. He came naturally by his news paper talent from his gifted father, and he had already showed his class, bad won his spurs and was just beginning a career of strength and usefulness when the dread disease manifested it self as a cleft of lightning from a clear sky. The people of Anderson knew and loved him. and they will miss his cheery grouting, his companionable ways, his happy nature and sunny life. A VISIT TH ?AFKNKY. I'v been lo Gaffney to s?e Jack and let the home folks tell lt, I've been as near heaven as 1 am likely to lie soon. They soy any place Jack calls home ls a haven of rest to me.

Wherever Jacki, bangs his cap a halo comes bigger than any aurora boreal is you have ever soon lb the northern heavens. All this ls not true, but 1 ran sav this much where over Jack is, there you will find the core of my heart Jack ls two-thirds of tho world to m?, and the best of me ls In that part of the world and I can't hardly live on the little that is left to me. Of course thero 1H nota bit of use my telling al? and I wouldn't mention it at all, but Mr. DeCatnp can't believe it and I asked him to come to Anderson and see for himself what Jack is to me. But I didn't mean to. say much about thc sweet hoy, but Tuesday morning when I told him goodbye I just felt Ilk? I couldn't stand lt. After I had left his boarding place I looked back and happened to gaze right Into Jack's bedroom. Through the open window I could see Iiis bed and the very pil low where his head had .lain but a few minnies before, for bc had gone to work but a little while. In this bed room I saw Jack's new home, th? place whore lin lives, a place that ls home to pl ace he caa stay,'but I can not. A plac he must stay, for be lias work there and ho must keep it, and I want tit in to keep it. I told him I want ed him to stay thero. Yest I told him I wanted him to stay in Gaffney and then do you know, I felt as if my heart would break, giving my consent for Jack to live otusid? the city limits of Anderson was like signing my death sentence, bul do you know we can do a whole lo* of things we never dreamed we had strength to do-do thom and liva on. 1 thought my heart would break Tuesday when I left him.

In removing discriminations against' interstate commerce, the court held I congress was not bound to reduce the j interstate rates below what lt muy I deem tu be proper standard to the currier und lo the public. "Othorwifu," auld the opinion, "ll could prevent the injury lo interstate comcmrce only by the sacrifice of its Judgment as to Interstate rates." J up (ice Hughes who wrote the court's decision in the rate cases, of a year ugo. pointed out that the pres ent case did not conflict with those cases. Ile said that in the absence of a finding hy the commission of un jin-. discriminations. Intra-state rates undoubtedly were left to be fixed by the carrier and subject to the author ity of thc Stales. "We ure not unmindful of Hie grav ity of the question that is presented when State and Federal views con flict." the opinion concluded. 'Bul it was recognized at the beginning the nation could not prosper if Inter state and foreign trade were govern ed by many masters, and where the I interests of freedom of interstate commerce ure involved, the judgment o? congress and of the agencies lt law fully establishes must control." Members of the Interstute com merce commission regarded this case as one of the most important, in which the hotly had ever been Involved.

But then with all th? heart aches, lt is better than no visit at all. there is Hupert off so far that I can't go to see him ever. Don't know If hip town is a good town like Gaffney and don't know if his boss ls good like Mr De Camp. Mr. DeCamp ls good to Jock. Takes an interest in him and wants him to be a good boy and to use his own words, said he tried to be a broth er to the boys in the office, and then do you know I wanted to put my arms about him and give him a real mother ly hug. Yes Mr. DeCamp is a fine man, a big man, a very big man. Ah! when a man wants to bu his brother's keeper, you can size him up as being too heavy to weigh on a scale made by man, therefore the half can never be told, and some day Jack's boss will find an old mother waiting on tho inside the gate to give him a welcome to the home not made with hands eternal In the heavens. But .Tack's blessing continues, lils board ing place is tip top. So homelike, and dear Mrs. Surratt is a mother to him. and makes him feel that her home is really his. and she, too, feels a great Interest in him. Yes, I love Gaffney. Of coure T love Gaffney. They are nice to Jack and that is enough for me and Gaff ney is a real big place, too. I suspect It is thc biggest place In South Caro lina, a good old man told me that you can't get whiskey In Gaffney for love nor money. So if that isn't enough to make it big, grand and glorious 1 don't know what ls. Yes, If I could "sell out." I woud make a bee line for Gaff ney and I advise all thc men folks who like booze, the sooner you can get to Gaffney the better for you. Don't stop at a Keely cure, but go where folks ar.? too good to '?e!l the vile stuff. Yes, Gaffney don't need suffr.t^ettes there. The men folks ?re plenty able to manage their own una!rt., man age them In a way that brings peace and happiness and builds a town on a firm foundation, and I want Jack to stay there and let Wir. DeCump boss him. I know lt will h? tho makin'? of Jack and I'll go to see him every time I can. Chance for Grannie. A little English boy wrote to hts grandmother from his boarding school. In time for her birthday. The letter ran thus: "Dear Grannie: I want to send you a birthday present, but. I haven't any money.
