AT THE BUSINESS COLLEGE
THE YEAR S TERM OPENS MON
DAY, AUGUST 30.
Prof. H. L. Darner, a Man of Great
Experience Has Charge of
Well Known School.
The Business College school year
will start Monday, August 30th -a
i week previous to the starting of the
' city schools.
The college will he conducted in the
Wahl building. The place has been
cleaned and papered, blackboards
hn.i been arranged in position and
the room will make a pleasant one for
| the purpose.

Its size is fortunate to possess. Prof.
II. li. Darner, who will bt> in charge
is a self-made man, having been born
on a farm in Southeastern Nebraska
and receiving the customary educa
tion of a farmer lad. Ills first school
| ing was secur. t! under difficulty, bo
j ins forced to drive five miles in the
l winter time to a high school, and
I then to take a nine months’ course
of study in six, on account of it not
being possible for him to start when
After graduating from the high
school he attended the Northwestern
Professor H. L. Darner.
Business College of Beatrice, Nebr.,
where lie taught several months, af
ter graduating from that school.
Ills next experience as an Instruct*
• ii' was at Superior, VVis., where he
had several departments in a business
college. Feeling tin1 need of actual
business experience, he resigned his
position in this college to act as hook
keeper and cashier for a large firm.
Getting the actual business experi
ence he desired, he put the finishing
touches to his education by graduat
ing from the Zanerlan college of Col
umbus, Ohio, with the highest grade
of any student who ever graduated
from that school during its twenty
five years existence. After gradu
ating, his ability was desired in the
school and for three years he taught
in all branches of the institution.
During his employment there he con
ducted a Y. M. C. A. night school.
Mr. Darner has since been assist
ant editor of the Business Educator,
one of the foremost educational jour
nals in the country.
Nearly every state in the Union con
tains instructors in business colleges
who were once Mr. Darner’s pupils.
Recently he had charge of the
penmanship department at the teach
ers’ institute in this city, where two
periods each day were conducted. To
show the interest taken in these
classes,there were many of the teach
ers who made a special effort to at
tend Dotli periods. No department
was given greater attention than was
tli is one.
These few remarks concerning the
qualifications of Mr. Darner, we deem
necessary to prove our first assertion
that few, if any, towns the size of
Fails City afford such excellent op
portunities for a business education.
Mr. Darner will be assisted in the'
work by his wife, who is amply qual
ified for her departments.
