RAMBLINGS OF A SCHOOL TEACHER
Let sunshine and rain improve
your home by removing the
weeds, old boards and tin cans—
in short, rubbish of all kinds.
Clean out the fence corners and
plant something in them to eat
if they are large enough; if not,
plant something to look at. A
bunch of flowers are better than
rubbish. Rubbish has a melan-
cholic effect on the mind; flowers
have a cheerful effect. Not only
the inhabitants are affected by
the scenes, but passers by are
affected in the same way. To a
great degree the character of a
person is judged by the trash in
Tin cans are dangerous. Bac-
teria, protozoa and spores are
flying everywhere and multiply
with great rapidity when con-
ditions are favorable and when
they can find something to eat.
Spring and summer favor their
development. A little food left
in a tin can, bucket or bottle
makes a happy home for them.
No can or bottle should ever be
thrown away without a hole in
both ends. This prevents the
water standing in them and en-
ables the rain to wash them out.
homes in the tin can, but gnats,
mosquitoes and flies do well in
them. Flies, gnats, mosquitoes
and most everything else carry
germs. A nineteenth of all sfek-
ness is caused by germs. Why
not prevent the germs from
entering the body and thereby
prevent sickness? A good way
to kill germs is to let the sun-
shine in, and by starving them to
death by not throwing away tin
cans with food sticking to them.
Break the old bottle, punch .
hole in both ends of the can, haul
them off and burn them.

On those words we invested
with the right people; confidence
in Oklahoma. We proved it by
paying $5000 for the right and
pi otection to use the famous
Byrne systems in Oklahoma. It
is better than an oil well, costs
less and more sure for the invest-
or; it sticks, oil slips.
Our 1916 increase was
than our investment.
Everybody tells us of C. C. B C
growing popularity. We love
to see our students go up; they

In 1916 we made another heavy

put students on salaries. Their
investments were good and they
make our school popular by tell-

would be to you on an investment
of $50 tuition, about $55 board
and $9 for books, if you should
get a salary of $60 the first year,
against what you get now. Many
get uore than $100 the second
year. Better figure the combined
course tuition and the increase.

the investment is what makes our
School teachers and parents
are always telling boys about
that rainy day." Teachers get
interested in the above figures
and become our biggest boosters.
Every spring they come in num-

summer and get ready for posi-

start in the fall. We would not
forget to mention them for they
