Business School For Newberry.
A branch of Cecil's Business
s school is to be opened in our city,
and the young men and women will
no longer have to leave home for a.
commercial training. This school
s comes to our city well recommended,;
d and the proposition they have to of-;
fer is attraetive indeed. one thait
-Ishould appeal to any one who is in
terested in a business education.
Sadler-Rowe's famous "Budger sys
tem'' is the course in bookkeeping,
a and its likeness to real business is
s certainly remarkable, in that actual
;, commercial 'papers are handled with
L each otransaction, and the moment a
cl student takes up the subject he be
e gins the work of an actual bookkeap
er. He begins at once to receive the
business' papers which naturally come
into the business from the outside
world and prapares such as are is
sued to those with whom business is
transacted. The transactions repre
sented by those business papers are
recorded in the proper books, and he
continues this work until he has been
thoroughly trained in posting, taking
trial balances, making balance sheets
and closing the ledger, as well as in
the farms and uses of all the ordi
nary business papers.
T:he speciments of improvment in
penmanship that Prof Cecil has will
please the eye of any aspirant,. and
are conclusive evidence that the
school shovld be well patronized.
The school will be located in a .n
venient place, day or night sessions.
