Picture or adBION COLE.

   MR. BION COLE is an excellent sample of exemplary men who have earned prominent recognition through energy and push characteristic of noble instincts and due regard to application in the pursuit of opportunities placed at his command. Mr. Cole is forty-three years old and a "Hoosier" by birth. He is what might be termed a strictly self-made man. Having lost his father In the Civil War, was compelled to make his own way, and not having the means to obtain a college education, chose as his profession newspaper work, entering the office of the Goshen, Ind., Times as an apprentice, and served in that capacity four years.

   Mr. Cole has done duty on the leading papers of the West, namely, Burlington Hawkeye, Denver News and Tribune, and Kansas City Journal, and hob-nobbed in those cities with such satellites as Will Vischer, O. H. Rothaker, Gene Field, and others who held high cards in the grand carnival of newspaper men.

   Twelve years ago he engaged himself as traveling representative for the Western Newspaper Union, and in that position was brought in close touch with the fraternity in Missouri, Kansas, Texas, Utah, Colorado, Nebraska, and the territories, - therefore, holds in pleasant memory vast acquaintance among the craft. After a probation of ten years, his employers assigned him the management of their business at Lincoln, and that his calling was not a guess as to his ability as a manager. It is but proper to say the Western Newspaper Union's Lincoln office does more business than any one of the many other branch houses of the company, size considered.
