GETTING TN PRACTICE.
The Alleghnny Institute foot.bull team
Is now getting down to steady work and
is rapidly improving under the careful
training of Clipt. l'hil Meade, who is
well known in this locality as n player of
no mean ability, and they are now prac?
ticing hard every afternoon. As yet
nothing can he stated positively as to the
lino up of the team, as only four of last
year's team are hack?i. e., !?. S. and A.
K. Handy, Withers ami Strader. Of the
hew men Alleghnny has most assuredly
drawn three prizes in Bentley, of the
Roanoke V. M. C. A. team, Keeley, of
Pennsylvania, and Meade,who played full
hack on the Alleghnny team of '93 aud
is captain of the team this year. Behind
the line Alleg'-any will he nuusnlly
strong this year, havlti", S. P. aud A. K.
Handy for halves, Keeley for full and
Meade at quarter. In the line there are
still some very Important positions to
fill?i. e , center, one guard, one tackle
and an r?nd. Sunder, last year's guard,
wili he hack again at the same position
and will douhless give a good account of
himself. Uentley will hold down one
tackle in his own \ery efficient manner
and Withers, lust year's tackle, will he
transferred to right end this year. Bos?
ton, last year's full hack, has not decided
whether or not lie wili fight for Alle
ghany's glory on the gridiron again this
year, hut if he does he will very probably
be placed at center. O'Hara, an old
University of Virginia man, wi'l, in all
probability, play one of the guards, and
Peck, a Roanoko boy, is making a stroug
bid for tackle. Kingery and E. Handy, al?
though new at the game, will make any?
one work that tries to cut them out as
guards and Coe, Mills and W. Kaney are
working hard for left end and it is al?
most "nip and tuck" with them at pres?
ent. With seven ccod men as a nucleus
and seven other good ones to draw to,
Captain Meade should not have such a
very hard "row to hoe" and ought to he
able to put on the field the best team thai
Allegbnny has ever had before. of the
men that, did not return this year Divers
at center and MeClure on right end will
hi' sorely missed ami especially McCInro,
who whs an e.\ceptionally tine end rush
ned whose place it will be very hard to
fill. The practice this week has been very
simple, consisting of punting andjgetting
down the field cn kicks, forming inter?
ference and some tackling, and in all the
candidates have showed up well. Cap?
tain Meade is temporarily laid up with a
nore foot, having been spiked in the game
of ball on Saturday. It wili be well to
sav while on this subject that Although
Allegheny goes olT on trips they never
lose a day from ;-chr.ol work, as they take
them between Friday and Monday, it
being the policy of the school never to
allow athletics interfere with the school

THE INCREASE IN BUSINESS.
It has often been said, and wisely said,
that printer's ink is n good medium
through which to "advertise your.busi?
ness, it is good. Our schcoi* last year
numbered sixty-eigltt students at tlie
close of September; anil we have been
running now only three weeks and wo
are far beyond 101) students to-day. Some
one said: "Printer's Ink Play cause
false impressions." Coma und see us.
Seeing is believing.
We do get places for cur students. A
nun,her of them have Bee med places since
they trraduated on the :10th day of July.
On the Kith inst. we secured a place
with P. K. Davis, Jr., Roauoke, Yn., foi
W. It. Pedigo; on the 20th we secured
a place for h\ L. Droonihnuuh w'th C.
I). Kenny, Honnoke, Va., and on tho
22nd we secured a position for Eugene
E. Williamson with the Miiton Co?l Co.,
Chillicothe, Ohio. These students all
graduated July 80th, 1807, and have been
placed within n week through the in?
fluence of the president of the school.
Those who contemplate intending a
school should investigate the National
Business College. Honnoke, Va. We
cannot get out and create positions for
our students, nor enn we secure work for
those who are not studious, but we can
secure places (and good ones) for thoae
who will ava.l themselves- of the oppor?
tunities we present. We have the best
equipped business school in the State of
Virginia, and we offer to the public one
of the best sets of teachers in 'this State.
Those who'mlght seem to lie willina to
criticise or "investigate a school* should
do so with this one. We are glad of
criticism. That is the way we made our
school. We have never been to unwise
as not to take a suggestion or criticism
from outside parties. A gent'emnn was
made to exclaim lately when he left our
rooms, "I kneiv you must have some?
thing up here from the way you adver?
tise, but I had not the slightest concep?
tion of the number of students, the nr
1 ransrement of the rooms, or the well ilia
cipiined school which you control."
We thank the public gem-rally for its
patronage, and as we draw students from
Maine to Texas Jwe shall labor earnestly
for the interest and advancement ot our
students that we may continue Jto merit
and receive the liberal support and con?
fidence of our past advisors.

at any time, and take pleasure in show?
