A STORY OF IT'S SUCCESS Carefully Compiled, Well Printed, Beautifully Illustrated--The College When at Work--Its Organization Complete. The history of a catalogue generally can be written in four chapters: Thoughtlessly compiled, quickly printed, carelessly read, early consigned to the waste basket. The history of the annual catalogue just issued by Tri-State Business College,'from the presses of ihe Evening Times, Is, however, vastly different from this. It has been so compiled that the prospective student finds without difficulty the information he, or she, desires, given in a clear .truthful manner: it has been printed with such care m arrangement, composition ,und pre.ss work that it is one of the most pioduetions that has ever gone out a printing office in this section of State: it is so interestingly written that it will be carefully read and, ally, contains so much of value that will be accorded a place with other (faluable papers and books that are preserved. The catalogue consists of fifty-six pages, of super-calendared paper, with over fiftj half-tone illustrations, show- lag the college building, various departments, officers, directors and teachers, a number of graduates, and the most important public buildings Cumberland. It is in die last twenty pages of catalogue that the story is told that explains the success of this school. Here are given the letters from the many graduates of this college, who are filling important positions in various parts of the United States--all expressing their appreciation of the training they received at this college. And here are also given letters from many employers of Tri-State graduates, in various states, endorsing the school. These letters tell the tale-Tri-State Graduates succeed wherever -they go. Several thousand catalogues were printed and are now being distributed. A representative of the Times visited the college yesterday to look into the workings ofihe institution and* was found to surpass all that is about the ocllege hi the catalogue. the typewriting department twenty students were transcribing from their shorthand notes, upon Hemington, Smith-Premier and Underwood type-' writers, all owned by the college. In the shorthand and bookkeeping departments there were over sixty students at work. The writer arriied just as the students in the business course were being drilled itt" rapid mental calculations and was surprised at the results. He had the following problem read rapidly. 9 times 8 plus 4 minus C plus 4 minus G times 3 plus 9. and in seven seconds the correct answer was given by a dozen more students. He then gave six ifobleins in multiplication, two figures in. each number, and the time taken to read and get the correct answers the six was just one minute. In every department splendid work was being done. There is no play here, but systematic, thorough preparation for life work . The rooms are all well-lighted, care- full} ventilated and there Is everywhere a feeling of cheerfulness and spirit of hustle. The Tri-Stato is all and far more than it claims in its catalogue. The officers and directors of the college are: President and principal, a i^ J. W. Smith: vice-president and gen- ?ral manager. B. F. Shaffer: secretary. Arch A. Young: directors, "Robt. H. Gordon. ArchiA. Young. J. VC. Smith". and B/F. Shaffer, of Cumberland: S. Mullen, Hyndman. Pa.: J. James Gardner, Ellerslie. The college now has an enrollment of over one hundred students, and we were informed by the principal thaÂ«. at no time in the past four months has the daily attendance been Jolow ihe ninety mark.
