A CHANCE FOR CANTON COUNTY Yv'e mean by this that the people of this county have an excellent op portunity to educate their children at home. Why should we send our children oil' to some other county to bo educated, when we can get the same instruction and much cheaper at the Benton Seminary, which is situated at our. county site. That people should patronize their own county, all other things being equal, is a fact all. will admit without nr. gument. . Then we should all. cer tainly investigate the Benton Sem inary before going to other schools in other counties. Good board can be had at $7 and SS per month in private families; tuition, S1.25 to $3.50. Students can enter at any time. Special care will be taken with all students coming into our rank. Great pains will be taken in developing young teachers and preparing them for. thei r work. All departments will be taught, having seven instructors. A catalogue can be had on application. For fur ther information call on or address J. W. Blaik, Principal, Camden, Tenn. Biblo study at its best includes the study of Bible lands. In the Sunday School Times of August 17 tho Rev.
