WILL BATON AND THE
Apropos of the "Pay-Up Week"
question recently mentioned by the
papers of Dayton, when Will Eaton
was over from Pullman recently he
save his experience with the 90-day
system of credit in vogue in that city.
Mr. Eaton commenced running an
'limit at one of the stores when he
went over to Pullman and at the
end of 30 days be received a state
ment. That was all right, he said, it
merely kept him informed as to the,
size of his account. At the end of
60 days he received I bill. That too,
he regarded as all right, but just a
little unnecessary and he paid no at
tention to it. But at the end of 90
days he received notice to come in
and pay up or give his note, bearing
interest. This was a little too mash;
be didn't have to give any merchant
a note and he walked Into the store
and threw down the gold. After gel
ting his receipt lie went across to an
other store and told the merchant
that he wanted to arrange to do
.in.' trading with him. All right,
the merchant told him, he would he
glad to open an account with him,
but inquired as to where he had been
doing his trading and why he had
quit. Mr. Baton explained that he
had quit the other place because they
had the gall to insist on settlement
at the end of 90 days, either with the
cash or an Interest-bearing note. He
was then told that he couldn't get
any better terms there, that 90 days
was all the time thai was given any
customer. Mr. Eaton then decided
that if that was the system he would
so back to the store where he had
been trading, and he said that he
now preferred the 90-day plan to
the once-a-year system he had been
used to in Columbia county. —Dis-

C. R. SANDERS CO. I(
One of the most beneficial courses
provided by the college is that In
public speaking and the course is
proving popular with a number of
students. The object is not, as is
popularly supposed, to develop and
train orators alone, but to provide
practical training for engineers,
farmers and teachers that they may
lose their consciousness and bring
matters to a clearer light with great
er ease. The work does not consist
of elocution or dramatics, but the in
structors will endeavor to bring be-'
fore the average student the Import
ance of manner.
The physical faults of speech,
stage presence, gesture and presenta
tion are of primary importance in
developing an effective speaking
voice and in the oral composition
work these points will be especially
emphasized. Another course will be
based upon a study of the lives and
speeches of great orators with a
• tudy of the marked characteristics
of all oratorical composition.
In this course will be more plat
form practice, which would he of
great benefit to those who continue
in public speaking. In the general
course in oral presentation of as
signed material an aptitude for ex-
mporaneous speeches is to be de
veloped. The subjects assigned will
be from the different fields of activ
ity in which the student is most in
terested, and the work is expected
to be of great practical value.
