This is the third annual event of this kind in Council Bluffs, and the citizens tare all astir over the matter. It is said that no other carnival event in the state has been as successful as the one held each year at the Bluffs. Some of her best and most influential citizens have or ganized themselves into a corporation, and the carnival is being run on strict ly business principles. Every cent that is received above the actual ex penses is turned over to charity or some enterprise that will directly ben efit the public. All railroads are (riv ing reduced rates to the Bluffs during this fair, and no doubt a number of Denison people will attend. NEW DO YOU NEED 44 Look our line over before buying.

The Denison Normal and Business college has inaugurated a correspon dencecourse in which instruction will be given by mall in shorthand, book keeping, com inertia! law, a»d all grides of luuuty cemucates to those deal ir. tiun kind of instruction. This mo.u '.a in with th»» progress of other schools and universities in the United States, which have installed correspondence courses, is the proper spirit wiih which to meet the competi tion of the various correspondence schools over the country. Those at the head of the collese do not advise any one to take this kind of a course, as it in no way equals the benefit to be derived from direct contact with teach ers and fellow students, but they are prepared to supply it to those who de sire it. To those who wish to take a correspondence course we would advise that you patronize the home institu tion which you know something about rather than trust your money to so called schools in the large cities who do business behind post-office bo£ numbers.
