Miss Mary E. Pretty proved herself
the most expert typewrltlst In the
world a few rinys ago when she wrote
20,400 words In six hours niul rend
her 6wn copy from closely written
manuscript. Her work did not aver
age ono error to tho page.
Tho young woman who has so sud
denly gathered fame unto herself Is
Just 27, and came from Philadelphia
last March to fill n position In the
patent offlro at Washington. Sho
was appointed under tho civil serv
ice, having taken the examination
last Octoner. Her success Is as mucn
of a surprise to herself ns to anybody
else, for she never dreamed there was
anything remarkable about her way
of operating a typewriter. She does
not claim to use any special system
unless It he one of her own, which
sho would not know how to teach to
any one else. Ileforo coining to Wash
ington she worked for a commercial
house In Philadelphia that paid her
$12.50 a week-. She Is now paid on a
basis of $720 a year, hut has every
reason to uxnect rapid promotions
until sho reaches $1400, tho highest
salary paid to a female stenographer.
Miss Pretty took n business eourso
In one of the schools of her native
city nnd Immediately obtnlned em
plomont with n largo mercantile firm.
She never tried to gain unusual speed
on tho typewriter, but always dis
patched her work as quickly and ns
easily as possible, with no unneces
sary (lurry. Her complexion Is as
pink nnd white as a child's, and when
sho talks sho shows a row of teeth
of almost transparent whiteness. Her
hands are small nnd have hardly lost
their childlike chuhblness, nnd yet
they glide over the keys of n type
writer with an ease and nglllty which
is recorded on the records of the pat
ent ofllce of tlio United States.
Those who have watched her work
say that the secret of her success Is
steady nerves and a power of concen
tration which Is bettor than any sys
tem over Invented. Chicago Tribune, i
