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 protest. H? alth ofllcer Reardon was on the Graded School grounds a few days ago apparently superintending the digging of a ditch across the yard from the Calhoun school. Inquiry elicited the information that the wa? ter spigot was being removed from against the steps to some distance away where the children would be able to get water and not make a slop near the building. The former arrangement of buckets and dippers Bet around On benches, has been done away with for sanitary reasons, and the school children will hereafter get water fresh from the spigot instead of from buckets In which the mi? crobes were washed from the dippers after being used consecutively by the children. The other school build ings have had the same reform insti tuted. THE PIANO CONTEST.

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? rector. 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 and drawing. 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 course. 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 problems. 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. NOTICE! To any person holding tickets: I will have another drawing on Saturday, Jan. 15, At 8 P. M. For the Diamond King and Clock, if not called for by that time. The numbers that have been drawn are : Diamond 1631, Clock 1990.
