Almost Every-Pupil Who Has Taken
a Full Course Now Holds a Profit
able Pos'Ulon ' at Congenial Employ
ment A Fine School Room.
The young man and young woman
of Norfolk and north Nebraska have
convenient to them an institution of
learning that is prepared to and will
elevate them from drudgery to conge
nial nnd proiltablo employment and
that institution is the Norfolk busi
ness collcgo occupying the third lloor
of the Cotton block and presided over
by Mr. C. H. Brake ns principal and
Mrs. Brake ns assistant. It has prov
en its capability in this direction and
will continue to bo of advantage to
ambitious young people as long ns it
endures. Many young people not
aware of its advantages are neglect
ing the golden opportunity for prepar
ing themselves for a life work of
clean and high character.
During its brief existence the Nor
folk business college has established
an enviable reputation in the accom
plishments of its pupils. Behind bank
counters , in counting rooms in rail
road ofllces , largo manufacturing
plants , business houses and other in
dustries are found the pupils of the
Norfolk college , receiving excellent
salaries at agreeable work. Of the
pupils who have finished the course
it IB not an exaggeration to say that
ninoty-flvo per cent nnd better are
now well employed at good wages and
In steady situations. Thirty per cent
of the pupils who have taken instruc
tion at the school are employed , but
the best results are shown by these
who have completed the course. Six
pupils hold positions in banking hous
es , two are employed in St. Paul ,
Minn. , one in Denver and one in Oma
ha and soon there will be scattered
over the country in all lines of Im
portant achievement men and women
who were fitted for their duties in the
Norfolk school. Flattering reports
como from the pupils now out Their
work averages with the best of them
and better then most of other clerks
and employes in similar lines of en
deavor. The achievements of the
school are as good as of any business
college In the state. Some offer more
and make greater bluster , but the Nor
folk college is fitting its pupils for
their chosen work while others are
talking of what they can do , but fail
in the proof.
Professor Brake is a thoroughly
competent instructor as is also Mrs.
Brake. They have had years of ex
perience in public school work and
fe- also In the special branches that they
now teach and are fully qualified to
reach the needs of the ambitious young
man and woman. Mr. Brake says it is
astonishing what a fifteen-months'
business course will accomplish to
ward brightening up and fitting for
business pupils who have attended
the public schools . In the Norfolk
college individual attention is devot
ed to the pupils in a much larger de
gree than in some of the large schools
of a similar character. Each one Is
instructed according to his individual
requirements Instead of being placed
in large classes where he must catch
on the fly what instruction is given
out to the entire student body.
Then , too , the work is made conge
nial. There are pleasant rooms and
Interesting companionships. The first
three weeks is said to mean hard
work and earnest concentration of
thought but after that the work Is
easy and it is a flattering comment on
the Norfolk school that the pupils who
get well started in the work usually
stick and enjoy every moment that
they are in the school room.
In other schools and other towns
the pupils pay more for board , greater
tuition and larger incidental expenses
and got half the attention that is giv
en In the Norfolk college.
Board is very reasonable In Nor
folk , the railroads make it a conve
nient point for the attendance of
young men and women from all over
north Nebraska and it is hoped that
in a few years the attendance at the
Norfolk business college will include
everyone seeking the instruction that
is there given in the entire territory
contingent to the city. There Is op
portunlty awaiting the young men and
young women who can take this In
struction and there is no better or less
expensive place to secure the learn
ing than in the Norfolk business col

The force of men on ihe now Union
Pacific round house are rapidly com
pleting their work and the building
will soon bo finished. The work of
laying the roof is now engaging their

for under its cover.
A door has been cut through the
west wall of the Davenport cold stor
age plant for the convenience of plac
ing ice in the vault above the storage
rooms. Hitherto the Ice has been put
In through a door in the east wall , but

side of the building the work lias been
done very Inconveniently. The door
was originally placed there with the
belief that during some seasons the
Ice would have to bo shipped In , but
there has not been a failure of the
crop since the building was erected.
Two cars of ice were shipped in atone
ono time from Sioux City , but that was
compelled by nn exceedingly long sum

a fact that is flattering to Mr. nnd
Mrs. Brake nnd their instruction. It
Is that after a pupil has entered for

it agreeable and useful ho usuallly has
the ambition to complete the course.
