HE GIVES INSTANTLY THE POPULATION, OF ANY CITY IN THE UNITED STATES
HE CAN BUILD YOUR MEMORYdO THAT IT WILL NEVER FAIL
ARE YOU ABLE to recall Names, Faces, Dates, Telephone
and Street Numbers? '
CAN YOU remember the facts in a book, quotations and
other things you read?
DO YOU INSTANTLY recall important business and pro
fessional facts and memoranda?
CAN YOU speak in public without the use of notes, and be
sure of what you want to say when you want to say it?
If you cannot answer yes to all of these ques
tions your natural memory is in need of train-
ing; if you can you have a remarkable mem
ory worthy of higher developments under the
Cromwell course in memory training.
The simple ard efficient system of the CROMWELL
SCHOOL OP MEMORY will stop mind wandering, give
power of observation, make you concentrate and strengthen
your will power.
The Cromwell School of Memory Training has just
completed classes in several Oregon cities, including The
Dalles and Hood River. These classes were composed of
the leading Bankers, Lawyers, Doctors, Merchants, City
and County Officials and business men and women. All the
students highly endorse the system and several have given
testimonials that the FIRST LESSON alone was worth sev
eral times the tuition fee for the entire course.
Several business and professional men and women have
already enrolled in the class here, in Springfield. The work
will start next week and will be personally taught. No study
outside of class. No books. This is NOT a correspondence
course. Work absolutely guaranteed. Separate classes for
men an,n women. Private Instruction included.
Cut out and mail.
Dear Mr. Blower:
I am interested in knowing more about
your course in Memory Training. Kindly have
your representative call and see me.

Mr. Geo. C. Blower, The Dalles, Oregon.
Dear Sir: It may he that you will be interested in
having a written statement as. to what your memory course
has done for me at masterlnginsurance tables.
It, has enabled me in a fev minutes time to do what, it
ordinarily took a month. I have no difficulty in remember
ing faces, facts, dates and quotations. In public speaking
it 1ms benefited me wonderfully. I record things in my head
that took note books before. 1 would not have missed your
work for many times more the price it cost and can recom
mend it to any person who is trying to increase his efficiency

Dear Sir: I am wrltlne:thls letter to you to let you
'now how satisfied I am with your course and to tell you
about some of the facts it has already done for me.
In the first place I have never been able to remember
names of people to whom I am Introduced. Last Sunday I
was at Hood River and met a crowd of eight men about one
o'clock. Shortly after meeeting them I went into the country
for the rest-on the afternoon:;and did not see one of them
until I went to take the train home that night. Just before
the train started I bid each man goodby in turn and had no
trouble In remembering all but one by nxtme.
In remembering, prose and poetry writings, numbers
formulas and addresses I consider the system taught in this
course as one of the greatest-1 assets that a man can have.
Since taking the course I have learned several very dlfilcult
quotations by merely looking them over several times, and
with talking with other members of the class havo found
'that they have had many similar experiences as the two
' In closing I will say that a person cannot afford to pass
up any opportunity offered to take this course If they wish
to do justice by themselves.
Yours Very Truly,
