Course of Study
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 wcrk 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.

Cowglll. Mr. Luzader Is a prominent

"I have seen much of the United
States and thought I was reasonably
wen posted in geography, hut was
simply astounded at tho vast areaa of
land, tremendous mountains, magnl
ficent scenery and long distances bo
tweonp laces when I got across tho
uocky mountains. I liked California,
but Oregon is the placo for a younp
man to como to. I havo spent a nuin

market. It has tliu nunio as .well as
tho merit and others aro copying the
brand. What wo read In thu easl
about Oregon and tho Pacific North
west does not begin to give an Idea
of tho wonderful resources here. Of
course. I havo only been hero but a
short time, but have seen much, trav
elled bo many miles in this one state,
through such varied climates, soils,
elevations and havo seen so many
possibilities In agriculture, stock
raising, manufacturing and mining
that it will tako me months to tell
my friends about It when I got homo.
It is useless to go into details. You
havo eveything hero that man could
wish for In tho way of opportunities
Your great gold and silver mines
with a hundred times more undovel
oped mineral wealth than has boon
opened; your splendid agricultural
lands; tho muglnflcent opportunities
for Irrigating great tracts of rich
lands which aro sure producers;
your promising hlgh-grado oil fields;
your unequalled stock raising advan
tages; your marveloiiB timber ro
sources; your practical monopoly of
traffic with China and Japan, all
make a combination tho like of which
nono of us ever dreamed of a few
years ago, and which few of us can
now realize. I shal (ry to tell our
people something of what I havo
seen when I go homo and I expect
to make my arrangements to return
