The Ohio Penitentiary News, for many years a flourishing daily paper published by con victs, has suspended publication for the very good reason that there is not left in that big penal institution a single man that can handle type. Bankers are in plenty. More than twenty were there, and others on the way. Several con vict banks might be operated, with men to spare. Enough lawyers are there to take care of an enormous amount of legal business. Doctors, brokers and other “eminently respectable” citizens are not lacking. Business men, farmers, me chanics and representatives of almost every other department of industrial activity are common there. But there is not one printer. The fact throws new light on a character that has long been commonly misjudged. The printer today is a home owner. He is of fixed employ ment and is the head of a family. The fact that more than twen ty bankers are in the Ohio peni teniiary, and not one printer tells of the relative honesty of the printer of to-day—and tells more. It tells us that the most com mon and most dangerous crimes are being committed not by the world's workers.—Mobile Her ald. To Our Subscribers. Editor Sentor of the Columbus Commercial addresses his delin quents iu the modest but forceful launguage as follows: “Prom time to time we have sent out statements to our delin quent subsribers but many of you have paid no attention whatever to them, and as a consequnce we are forced to say a few words through the colums of our paper. These words will be brief but to the point, viz: We do not mind to send the paper to those who are not able to pay for it but we do not want any DEAD BEATS on our list and that is not all; we do not ex pect to keep them on any longer than proper papers can be pre pared to make such as would trv it, feel heartily ashamed of them, selves. If you, MU. or Mrs. Reader, are in arrears you know it just as well as we do, and if you are the honest man or woman you profess to be you will come in and pay up back debts and re new your subscription for anoth er year or have the paper stop ped. This is our last and only notice and it is given such prominence herein that you cannot fail to see it RIGHT NOW.” We hope that our delinquents will respond to our repeated statements sent out and make us happy for a little while. Miss Grace Wood of Cooper School, spent Friday and part of Saturday with her parents. We are glad to know she is pleased with her school and the patrons with her and also the pupils.

Clark spent part of Tuesday and Wednesday here as the guest of Mr. and Mrs. R. C. Bridges on his return home from Conference, Peru Springs. For several years he resided here and minister on this Circuit. Conference has placed him on the Kosciusko Circuit. Mr. Clark is a splendid man and a good preacher. The Kosciusko Circuit is most fortunate in having in the person Mr. Clark and his good family. He is very much beloved here and popular and no doubt, the good people in his new home will appreciate him properly. It could not be other wise to know the man. Capt. A. P. Young was in the city Wednesday trading. THINK IT OVER Young Man, Young Woman, Think it Over—lt is a Serious Matter. It is stated that Mrs. Hettie Green, who is one of the wealthiest women in the world, and who manages her prop erties, which consist of railroad’s etc., said after taking a business course: “Every man and every woman, rich or poor, young or old, prince or peasant, married or single should secure a busi ness education.” If yen are interested in securing a good business education and a good position, and will read the catalogue published by Draughon’s Practical Business Colleges, Jackson, Memphis and elsewhere, a chain of twenty-eight colleges in sixteen States, and do not attend one of uraughon’s Practical Business Colleges: IT WILL NOT, in our opinion, be be cause you are not convinced that Draughon’s Practical Business Colleges offer the best course of instruction in bookkeeping. IT WILL NOT, in our opinion, be be cause y:>u are not compelled to admit that the system of shorthand taught in uraughon’s Practical Business Colleges is the best system in existence, and is used by more Government stenogra phers and court reporters than all the other systems of shorthand combined — a system acknowledged by the world’s greatest writers to possess the greatest speed qualities and reading qualities. IT WILL NOT, in our opinion, be be cause you do not think that Draughon’s Practical Business Colleges have the best facilities for securing positions. IT WILL NOT, in our opinion, be be cause you are not convinced that Draughon's Practical Business Colleges have an International reputation, and that Draughon’s Diploma is of far more value to a student than a diploma fiom any other Business College. IT WILL NOT, in our opinion, be be cause you are not convinced that 11 ; text-books on bookkeeping publisher ’- y Draughon’s Practical Business Colleges are TEN times more strongly indorsed by business men and practica 1 bo • keepers-supremc judges-than an} o’, er text books on bookkeeping. IT WILL NOT, in our opinion, be be cause you are not convinced that Draughon’s Practical Business Colleges can give you a business training that will enable you to advance to the most honorable and highest-salaried positions —a training far more valuable than that which only qiu-lilics you to hold a small position, with no prospect of ad vancement, becam.; of the superficial training that is given by many schools —and, IT WILL NOT, in our opinion, bo be cause your are not convinced that a diploma from one of Droughon’s Prac tical Business Colleges would, in a com mercial way, be a passport to any part of the world. See elsewhere in this issue an adver tisement of these colleges. Write for catalogue. Address JOHN F. DRAUGUON, President. At either of the above-mentioned places.
