TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
I write this in the interest of D. N.
Cornett, who has been a student in
Hill’s Business College, Waco, Texas,
for several months, taking the busi- .
ness course. He has completed this
course in its entirety, and holds, the
diploma of the College to that effect.
I take pleasure in saying that Mr.
Cornett has done his work here in a
satisfactory manner. He has treated
his teachers with courtesy, and has
conducted himself all the way through
in a gentlemanly manner. He has
been punctual, obedient, and indus-
trious, and has attended faithfully to
his duties. I am not aware that he
has any habits that would be hurtful
to himself or to any business with
which he might be connected. I be-
lieve him to be a young man of in-
tegrity and honor, and that he will
prove faithful to any trust that may
be committed tv him. I heartily rec-
ommend him to any and all who may
need his services.
Yours very truly.
It. H. HILL.
I also hold a certificate for pro-
ficiency in penmanship under Zaner
Institute Columbus, Ohio.

trees that were protected do not seem
to be damaged, but it is sure the fruit
crop has been cut short very material-
