AUSTIN COLLEGE, SHERMAN,
50th Year Begins Wednesday,
Sept. 7, I904.
Necessary expenses, $200 to
$250 per year.
Has stood in and for Texas
these fifty-five years. Its alumni
fill honored positions in church,
state and the industries. Stu-
dents are mainly from Christian
homes, aud no institution can
show a more earnest, hiou
toned and loyal student body
than Austin College today.
Library, reading room, good
boarding system, gymnasium,
athletic park, literary societies.

equipped and manned, whose di-
ploma entitles to a life certificate
to teach, or gives creditable ad-
mission to the leading universi-
ties of the East, or is a passport
to success in professional or busi-
Where is the wisdom in send-
ing a young man to a high latitude
for the winter, and bringing him
back to Texas for the heated
summer? North Texas has a sa-
lubrious climate, and there is as
little sickness at austin col-
leoe as in any institution in the
country. The College is easily
accessible by train, telegraph or
Where is the business sense in
sending a young man away for
his education to return liiiu to
enter business amongst strangers
in his own laud? Give him his
education at Austin College and
ho will be well prepared, with a
wide acquaintance amonost tiik
influential families of his
own state, which often meant
dollars to him.

It was the intention of "The

with the opening of the Fair, but
the Pullman Company were un-
able to finish ami delivery these
sleepers, which are modern in
every respet until now. These
sleeping cars are especially design
ed for liot weather service. In-
stead of the hot, dust absorbing
slush seats, those cars are up-

I that the sleeping car rates will

service offered by "The Katy"
will 110 doubt prove very popular
with the traveling public, and
will give many an opportunity of
