In the lists that tell the losses of the

The Business College
On last 14londly ; work was rc-
sumed at the 1 "alls City Business
Cocg'e. ] ] after a holid = y vacation
of two wecn ; . Both teachers and
st.udcnts retttl'ned to their work
fired with new zeal and thc out-
look for a succcssful . . term is very
n ] a tteri ng' .
It was nearly eleven years ago
that Prof. Barrctt came to this
city and ; founded the institution.
In that time hc hag demonstrated
thc fact that hc can give any
young man or young woman a
first class business training and
at a rate of tuition form $20 to
530 cheaper than is charged at
at any other good business col-
lcgc. The growth of the school
affords abundant evidence of this
fact. At present thc attendance
is larger than ever before , and
the accommodations afforded by
thc building arc taxed to thc
A school must be known to bc
a good one before people will
send their sons and slaughters
there to secure the education
that is to meat : so much to them
in after years. That the Fal1s
City business college ] ] has such a
reputation cannot bc doubted because -
cause from a humble beginning
its growth has been steady and
well ] ] marked from year to , ycar.
In our opinion the succcss of the
business college ] ] is due largely to
the fact that all thc pupils arc
treated alike and one receives as
much benefit as anothcr. Prof.
Barrett accomplished this end by
a system 01 Private instruction ,
enabling thc backward students
to il\'oid the cmbarras mcnt which
naturally ] ] arises from an inability
to keep up with classcs. A know-
ledge of thc feeling that exists
between principal and student
shows another reason for thc pop-
ularity of the school. \Vhilc
Prof. Barrett demands at all times
thc best work the pupil is capable
of doing , he is at all times one of
them , has their best interest at
heart , works with but one aim
and that is to scnd out young
men and young wom' n prepared
to enter thc avenue of the world's
activity and to fight the battle
and win it.
'l"his year thc enthnsias111 is
even more marked than ever , and
where such enthusiasm prevails -
vails in a school , good work
must result. The Falls City Bus-
incss College has long Passed the
experimental stag'c. It has de-
velopcd into a sound cducatonal
institution , with graduates successfully -
cessfully holding responsible pos-
itions all over thc count.ry. Its
sphere of usefulness ] is gradually
widcning' It is a credit not only
to Prof Barrctt , whose untiring
efforts has dcveloped it , but to the
city and the community generally ] ]
as wcll.
