Shorthand. The student begins
with the theory which is presented
in a manual of one hundred and
twenty pages arranged in twelve les
sons. Each lesson successively is
mastered thoroughly and written to
a required speed. The student is
next given a Universal Dictation
Course in correspondence, etc., sup
plied from twenty-six different busi
nesses, followed by a course in legal
forms and papers, depositions and
court reporting of civil and criminal
cases and speech reporting.
Typewriting We have several
standard machines in use, and the
mechanism in all their parts is ex
plained until the student is made
conversant with the care and use of
the typewriter. As the work of the
shorthand writer comes before the
the reader through the medium of
the typewriter, it is obvious that the
student must acquire a proficiency
which can only be attained through
proper instruction along the lines of
correct menthods followed up by ju
dicious and faithful practice.
