tese Cross hose, which has been pur

and has the advantage of not requiring
the water drained out of it as the old
one did thereby saving time and trouble.

Oregon City Normal College.
We began Oregon City Academy on

We received a state charter in 1901
nnder Oie name of Oregon City Normal
From numerical and financial stand
points, we have had reasonable success.
Our best success, however, is shown in
the advancement of our pupils.
Those of academic and normal graue
have accomplished their work bb thor
oughly and rapidly as the best schools
of college or academic grade.
Pupils in the advanced grades ot the
common school course have, as a rule,
passed two grades, or year's work, in
Our fourth year of school begins the
1st day of October, 1902.
We feel assured of a better school this
year, and look for increased attendance
oyer preceding years.
Oregon City is a good location for such
a school. If students of Oregon City and
surrounding country can do as well or a
little better in normal and college prt
paratory work than they can abroad, it
is certainly advantageous.
We have been long engaged in teach
ing, much of it in work of this grade,
and feel sure that no good student need
fail of doing the very best at Oregon
City Normal College.
Under the present sharp competition
in all lines of industry, all recognize that
every young man and woman suouiu
have a thorough, education. v
Wishing only the very best for the
young people now preparing to attend
school somewhere, we cordially invite
them to attend the college.
