nuiuincr.ible and untold advantages.
By virtue of her location she is the
wliol-.-.-a!v distributing jioint of the
soiilhwc-.-t. This demand is met by
ht-r many wholesale jobbing and
manufacturing industries. The
town is indeed cosmojolitan since
it is peopled by the very best classes
from the touruiurters of the earth.
A commerce of ideas which is of
untold advantage to the progrrssive

young jitojile are protected from
the many vices to which one is
usually exposed in a city of this
size. Chickasha is a prohibition

are ever ready to give chase to the

letter. Our people are a church

good buildings. Nearly every se-

banks and other industries galore
afford opportunities to the young
person who is interested in a prac-
tical education. To live in a com-
mercial atmosphere has a telling
effect. It is one thing to read
about business but it is another to
mingle with men and women of
push and energy those whose lives
are devoted to activity.
Chickasha is fast becoming an
intellectual center. Here we have
four modern school buildings a
first class Business College U. S-
court and a $10000.00 Carnegie
Library building under construc-
tion. Then we would say to the par-
ents who want their children to be
in good society surrounded by
christian influence and thrown in
contact with all that is progressive
send theni to Chickasha.
The school has been running five
months and has enrolled 151 stu-
dents. If any one will find one of
the pupils who has become dissat-
isfied with the courses or manner
of instruction or if you will find
any other school that has enjoyed
such prosperity and tranquility in
its youth or any other "old time"
Rolerts Business College will make
you present of a Commercial or
-shorthand scholarship which will
entitle you to take the course free
By entering Rolierts Business
College Sept. 5th you can acquire a
practical business or shorthand ed-
ucation by the beginning of the
Day and night school at Roberts
Business College. Thone who at-
tend the day school may attend the
night school free of charge.
All young people who are inter-
ested in preparing for life's battles
cannot afford to put it off longer

The night school is run for the
benefit of those earnest young men
and women who have employment
through the day.

The Aim of the School.
It is the aim of the school to help every young person who
i- trying to help himself.
It 1 the school's aim to give the best practical education in
iu the shortest time at the smallest cost.
If you are not desirous of something then stay away for
this life is too short to fjiend any of it on you.
It is the aim of the school to keep its doors open to young
men and women who go to school for business.
It is the aim of the school to put first class business and
and shorthand courses in the reach of every deserving young
man and and woman.
Will a Business College Education Pay?
Will it pay you to keep writing a bad hand?
Will it pay you to continue to be slow and inaccurate in
Will it pay you to remain ignorant of how to write and en-
Will it pay you to prepare for for hf-:" If not will it pay
you to live it?
Will it pay you to remain ignorant of the general princi-
ples underlying all business transactions? 1
Will it pay you to remain ignorant of bookkeeping when
you know that you will need it constantly through life?
Will it pay you to work for nothing and beg the job when
by getting a thorough business training the job hunts the man
and you may command a handsome salary?
Now do you think that it will pay you to ignore the op-
portunities offered by Roberts Business College that later you
might become a member of that order which has for its pass
word "I see where I missed it I had a good chance to go to
school but I didn't."
Demand for Male Stenographers.
The employment bureaus of this country show that the de-
mand for male stenographer is four times the supply. Uncle
Sam pays his stenographers $1200 a year at the beginning.
Recently the Federal civil service commission in a response to
a call from Washington for twenty or more stenographers for
the government held a special examination. Only six young
men appeared. '
A Free Scholarship.
The person w ho sends to Roberts Business College Chicka-
sha a list of names from which most students enter by the
first of January 1904 will be given free tuition in either of
Business Educatioe for Women.
The day has come when ladies are recognized as being fully
as well fitted for office work as men. Why not? She is not
to be discounted in attentiveness to business. Sh- has not of
the disagreeable habits sometimes possessed by men. Her ab-
stinence from dissipation allows her to be on hand at office
hours. By virture of her being a lady often makes her pre-
ferable. Men are few and heartless who are not desirous of
the beauties charms and refining influence of women even in
They have come to take a sensible view of the proposition.
The course is as much of an accomplishment as is music or any
other branch. It renders the woman independent and in case
she is thrown on her own resources she does not have to be-
come wash-woman or an object of charity.
Women have just as good a right to be independent as any-
one else we know of and judging from the sixty enrolled in
Roberts Business College in the last 90 days it seems a part of
the school to help make them so.
Why Roberts Business College is a Success
The unprecedented success of the school is largely due to
the follawing reasons:
1. Character of the institution undenominational but
strictly Christian. "
2. Its excellent system of Shorthand and strong commer-
3. Superiority of'the school's faculty.
4. The mode of government; the school places the young
men and women on their own honor and helps them to stand
5. Students get the studies they need any time they enter.
6. The noble young men and women always in attend-
ance. 7. The support of all acquainted witn the institution.
8. The good people of Chickasha in particular are to be
commended for their hearty support.
Conditions Have Changed.
Law firms banks mercantile establishments lumber com-
panies courts railroad officials etc. that a few years ago nev-
dreamed of employing stenographers now use one and often
more. They have learned that it is cheaper to employ steno-
graphers than to have one of the partners in the business or
the head of the firm to do the office work. His time maybe
worth several hundred dollars per month to the firm in other
lines of work while a stenographer can usually be had for $50
to $100 per month.
Does the School
No. It guarantees qualification where the pupil guaran-
tees brain and application. The medicall school does not guar-
antee the doctor patients; the law school does not guarantee
its graduates clients; the theological seminary does not guar-
antee its preachers pulpits; but how many competent physi-
cians qualified lawyers strong christian characters of the
ministeriel persuasion have you ever seen out of employment?
The same is true of the young man or woman who is qualified
for commercial work. This is an age when competency is in
demand. No school can manufacture positions. As a matter
of business Roberts School helps to place its graduates and
with its employment bureau the school is in position to hear
of as many vacancies and place as many students as the school
that coine3 to you with guarantee propositions.
The school does not guarantee positions but it will dupli-
cate the apparent guarantee proposition made by any school.
No Man Liveth to Himself.
In particular this is true in the business world. We don't
buy unless it is from someone. We don't sell unless it is to
someone. We don't write checks drafts deeds notes etc.
unless it is for someone. We don't make contracts unless it is
with some one.
By the very nature of things a great volume of buying sell-
ing banking and trading business in general is carrried on
through the mail. Roberts Business College in order to make
its commercial course more practical and business like has es-
tablished business relations between the commercial depart-
ments of Roberts school at Bowie and of this place. The stu-
dents of the two places buy sell ship goods and transact all
kinds of mercantile and banking business as is transacted in
The school has found that mathematics of business life is
neglected. Many are badly deficient in it they have the theo-
ry but lack the practice. The school gives a thorough course
in practical business methods.
Diily drills are given in this subject to train the mind to
act quickly and accurately.
Not dry rules but practical training in the correct speak-
ing and writing of the language.
This consists of writing spelling arithmetic rapid calcula-
tion practical English business law and typewriting.
The Turning Point in
the Life of Many a Boy.
Often students are doing absolutely no good in tho public
schools and not because they are ignorant and trifling but be-
cause they are bright and industrious and have been held back
and haws len classed with the bad caseses until they have lost
interest and have ceased to put forth effort. The special
course as given is quite an inducement tomany ambitious boys
and girls who are longing for a chance to show their worth.
How far Advanced must One be to take
a Business and Shorthand Course?
Due to the fact that the school is running a preparatory
department in connection with the regular work but one qual-
ification is necessary. "The desire toknow something."

For court reporting the Byrne
Simplified Shorthand has no equal.
It far surpasses all other systems
for legibility and speed. I have
thoroughly tested it m the county

I have studied the Fittman short-
hand but after taking a couise in
Byrne Simplified I find that it is
at least 35 ir cent shorter and
that a much higher sited can be
obtained with it in twelve weeks
than with the Pittman in six
months. Alvin Beyer.
