is dead. He died in Arkansas about
three weeks ago. He was a fine young
man, just in the bloom of life. His
father made one of the best officers
the county ever had.

larger than a shoestring breaks.

Which Will You Take?
Young man, young woman, the
world offers you three positions, one
at $4 to $5 a week, one at $9 and an
other at from $25* to $40 per week.
The first is the untrained mind that
must do the hard work, the second is
after the young man or woman has
been lead to believe they can draw
the pay of skilled minds, but find
when too late they have been duped
by unscrupulous promises. But when
the young man or woman completes
shorthand, typewriting, bookkeeping
and the other studies that go with
the above in our college, the $25 to $40
a week is the average pay. Which
will you take, the $4, $5, $9, or the $25
to $40 a week? Write to us about it.
