Isaac Pitman SHORTHAND.



Latest Statement by DR. W. T. BARKIS, U. S. Commissioner

of Education.

In the May issue of the "Stenographer," the Honorable W. T. Harris, Commissioner of the Bureau of
Education of the Department of the Interior, writes exonerating Mr. J. E. Rockwell from the accusation
that he was responsible for the statement in the Report of the Bureau of Education of i887-'88 to the effect
that the Benn-Pitman system of shorthand may be called the "American system." Dr. Harris says, in
part, " I confess that personally I was not well satisfied with the statement that the Benn-Pitman system is
the American system, having myself been interested for nearly forty years in shorthand systems, and having
learned first the system of Isaac Pitman through the textbooks published by Andrews & Boyle, of New York.
.... htWev'mg t\\a.\. the Ivor k of Isaac Pitman, in the first invention of the system and subsequent
improvement of it, had entitled him to a place solitary and alone in the invention of phonography. ■ ■ ■
I did not and do not think that any American phonographer has improved Isaac Pitman' s fhonography
to any extent that ivill entitle his system to he called the '' American system "



PERNIN
SHORTHAND.



" The Boys' HiKh School has a register of over 1100
pupils, of whom aljoutone half are lu the commercial
department, Pernin Sborthaud was added to the
course of study in the fall of '93. The first class was
graduated June 30, 1897, after a two years' course, of
tour terms of twenty weeks each. Dvirlug these two
years ten other branches of study were pursued ' •■



three days of five hours each. At the end of this time
our pupils were able towilte at an average rate of
100 woroB per minute, and properly transcribe their
notes on the typewriter"— Prof. H. O. BERNHiRUT,
Boys' High School. Brooklyn,

"Since the introduction of Pernin Shorthand, two
years ago, more students have successfully learned it
and tilled positions as stenographers than have ever,
during the 16 years the Pitman system was tamiht In
the public schools of these cities. Our Shorthand
classes have become the largest in America, and per-
haiis in the icorirt."— PROF. P. B. GiBSos, Boys' High
School, Brooklyn, N. y .

" Kor Court Reporting, the Pernin Shorthand has no
equal. It employs neither shadlpg nor position to
detract from speed, and even when written at a very
high rate of "peed, I And that It retains itsleglhlllty ti>
a marked degree. I unhesitatingly recommend the
Pernin to all."— G. F. Wyvell, Official Court He-
porter. 16th Judicial Dlst . Morris. Minn.

(Mr. Wyvell held the position before he was 19 years
old, earning «2,000 a year.)

The Pernin enaploys neither Shading nnr

To Get the Best you

Need to Investigate.

Almost Every Sehool-Book Publisher claims to have the best text-books.
Iiitelligent and discriminating teachers, however, have a vs^ell-founded idea that they
are the best judges as to the books that suit their requirements There are several
points on which a very large number of teachers are pretty well agreed. First, that
Johnson's Readers, Lee's School Histories, Smithdeal's Writing Books,
Thomas's Written Spelling Blanks, and other new text-books published by the
B. F. Johnson Publishing Company, of Richmond, are proving exceedingly satisfac-
tory, and come nearer reaching a high standard of perfection than any books offered
heretofore. Are you open to conviction ? We invite a searching investigation. Cat-
alogue and full particulars will be sent on application. A postal request is all that
is necessary. Address, i2y

rrrsitlcnt (Mril's Ini-ilntiini.
Ml!. W. J. Kinsley.

202 Broaihva.w XfW York.
Fkii;:nu Kixsley :

I am .?lad to avail myself of your courteous offer to
extend a very cordial invitation to all members of the
profession everywhere to join us at the forthcoming
meeting of the Eastern Commercial Teachers' Associ-
ation, to be held at Becker's College, Worcester, Fri-
day and Saturda.v following Thanksgiving.

The Executive Committee have been hard at work
all summer and have produced what I consider a most
excellent programme, a copy of which is enclosed.

The plan of the committee in outlining this pi-o-
gramme has been to have all the phases of our work
duly represented, and to present exact methods of in-
struction rather than glittering generalities, as is too
often the case. We have tried to please all and have a
good representation of teachers of business, shorthand
and penmanship, in all the departments of the work,
public as well as private.

The Eastern Commercial Teachers' As.sociation is
without doubt one of the healthiest organizations of
teachers in the country. The last convention, at Salem,
was attended by over 100 representative teachers, and
was helpful in many ways.

The oflicers and Executive Committee are struggling
hard to make the convention at Becker's College even
more successful. I am ijerfectly safe in guaranteeing
evei-y teacher full value for the time and money ex-
pended. We want everjbod.v to be with us. Xo mat-
ter whether the.v come from a school of 500 students
or a school with only five students.

All who are interested should correspond with the
undersigned, or Mi'. Chas. JF. Miller, of Miller's
School, tl33 Broadway, New York. Secretary of the
association.

Let us all join hands and make this the grandest
convention we have yet held.

Cordially and fralinnally yours,

(iEo. P. Lord.

Host JifrLer Idtls a For Words.
To Commercial Trnchcrs and all who are interested in
commercial education :

As the time approaches for the semi-annual meet-
ing of the Eastern Commercial Teachers" Association.
which is to take place at my rooms, in Worcester. I
wish to express in a public way my appreciation of the
honor accorded us and also to extend a most cordial
welcome to all.

Worcester is a remarkable city in many ways. Its
industries are vai-ied, and in many cases of mammoth
proportions. Its enterprise may be understood when
we state that in a number of industries it leads the
country and in some the world.

That the need of commercial education is appre-
