OFFICE FIRST NATIONAL BANK,

NASHVILLE, TENN., April 6, 1895. PROF. J. F. DRAGIOS, PRESIDENT DRAUGHON'S PRACTICAL BUSINESS

COLLEGE, NASILVILLE, TENN,: DEAR SIR:-The time for which you deposited $100 three months ago to-lay as a forfeit under your proposition to give $100 to any charitable institution in Nashville, and $100 to any Business College South of the Ohio river, if you could not show more written applications for Bookkeepers and Stenographers during the PAST FIVE MONTHS than any other Business College south of the Ohio river could show in the PAST FIVE YEARS has this day expired, and, no demand having been made, the same is now held subject to your check. Respectfully,

W. F. BANG, Cashier. N. B.- A certificate of deposit for the above was published in the daily papers of Nashville, the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Atlanta Constitution and thirty thousand circulars, giving the colleges three months' time to accept.-Nashville Daily Jmerican, April 7, 1893.

GOOD P SITIONS.

A Strong Indorsement From a Few of the Former Students of
Draughon's Practical Business College Who Have Re-
cently Been Placed in Good Positions by Him With
Nashville Firms—Read What They Say—This
Shows the Standing of Prof. Draughon's

College Where it is known Best. We, the undersigned former students in Draughon's Practical Business College, Nashville, Tennessee, state that we have very recently been placed in good positions by Professor Draughon-that those positions were secured for us within a few days after the course at the college was completed, and, as to some of us, a few days before the course was completed.

We unhesitatingly, but conscientiously, state that we believe that Professor Draughon has better facilities for placing his students in positions than any other business college; that he utilizes those facilities, and by this vigilance-untiring and unceasing efforts-in their behalf, has far greater success in placing his scholars in good positions than any other business college. Having been students in his college, and thus having been able to see and to know much of the facilities and efforts of Professor Draughon, we speak advisedly.

We are aware of the fact that there are other business colleges that are condemning Professor Draughon for his bold and positive statements that he has greater facilities than they have for securing situations for his students; but we regard those condemnations as “SOUR GRAPES,” and we believe that a careful and unbiased investigation of the facts will convince anyone of the truth of Professor Draughon's statements. In spite of those denunciations, however, Professor Draughon pursues the even tenor of his way; and while bis adversaries are losing time in raising their "cry," he is at his business—his post of duty-constantly enlarging and improving his course of instructions, and looking up situations for his worthy graduates. We found the course practical, and as thorough as we thought that it could be

made, but it seems that Professor Draughon is ever making improvements.

If any of his students do not like the course, it is because they do not lore hard work. The course has no charms for the indolent or inert, but to the student of pluck and energy, coupled with ambition and determination, it is valuable.
