RULES FOR CONTESTS FOR SHORTHAND SPEED TROPH-
IES, EASTERN COMMERCIAL TEACHERS' ASSOCIA-
TION, BOSTON, APRIL, 1907

1. There will be eight tests dictated as near as possible at
the following rates of speed, for five minutes each : 150, 165,
180, 200, 215, 225, 235, 250, arjd, if necessary, a final satisfac-
tion test at any higher rate of speed desired.

All contestants, whether for the Miner medal, the Eagan
cup, or the Pitman medals, will be expected to commence with
the first test and continue until they have reached their limit
of speed.

2. Contestants will enter any one of the following classes :
Class I. Those who commenced the study of shorthand

within ten years and wish to compete for the Miner medal.

Class 2. Those who commenced the study of shorthand
within ten years and wish to compete for the Miner medal
and the Eagan cup.

Class S- Those who commenced the study of shorthand
more than ten years before the date of contest, who will be
eligible only for the Eagan cup contest.

.'!. Each contestant will be required to transcribe one of
the dictations, and may, if desired, transcribe two. Any one
or two dictations may be selected, and the speed at which it
or they were dictated will be counted as the gross speed of
the contestant.

4. For each error in transcribing will be deducted one per
cent, from the gross speed. Each inserted or omitted material
word will be. counted as a material error. For each imma-
terial error will be deducted one-quarter of one per cent.,
and each inserted or omitted immaterial word will be counted



as an immaterial error. Each word wrongly transcribed, if
it changes the sense in any way, will be counted as a material
error. Each word wrongly transcribed which does not alter
the sense will be counted as an immaterial error.

5. Each contestant may transcribe his notes in any way he
sees fit, but the committee prefer typewritten transcripts, and
typewriting machines will be furnished to all desiring. All
competitors will transcribe in one room, to which only con-
testants, members of the contest committee, and one person
selected by each competitor as a watcher, may be admitted. If
a contestant does not transcribe his own notes, he may furnish
a typewriter operator to transcribe them for him. but said
operator will not be allowed to be present while the dicta-
tions are being given. No one will be allowed to communi-
cate with a contestant while transcript is being made.

6. For each typewritten transcript one hour will be allowed.
For those who transcribe by hand, one hour and thirty min-
utes will be allowed for each transcript.

T. The dictated matter will be carefully selected, and pro-
vision will be made that no possible opportunity will be af-
forded any contestant to have access in advance to any of
the matter to be dictated. As far as possible the matter will
be clear of proper names and technical expressions. The mat-
ter to be selected will consist largely of actually delivered
speeches and newspaper editorials, with testimony if de-
sired.

THE PITMAN MEDALS

It is to be understood that the medal offered by Isaac Pit-
man & Sons is to be given to the Isaac Pitman writer making
the best record irrespective of whether he wins one of the
other trophies or not.

Flourishing by F. M. Nierstheimer, Howard Payne College, Brownwood, Texas.



A Few Reasons Why

Our Practical Bookkeeping and the Twentieth Century Business Practice produce
the best results:

They were prepared by men successful as teachers, bookkeepers, and in business.

Needless theorizing has been avoided, and accounting and office methods are presented in an interesting way.

Theory and practice are combined in just the right proportion.

Clear illustrations and concise explanations precede each step. The student is taught to depend upon himself
from the outset, thus developing his self-reliance and thinking powers, and saving much of the teacher's valuable time.

The text-book is beautifully illustrated with copper-plate script. The writing on the engraved business forms was
done by more than one hundred of the best-known penmen, including E. C. Mills, A. N. Palmer, C E. Doner,
H. B. Lehman, and C. P. Zaner.

Our Bookkeeping has been used since first published in the Spencerian Commer-
cial School, Cleveland, Ohio, and the Detroit Business University, Detroit, Mich., —
two of the oldest and most successful commercial schools in the country.

Do not decide upon a Typewriting Instructor for use next season until you have
seen our new book on that subject, to be ready in a short time. Remember that we
are also the publishers of practical text-books on spelling, correspondence, English,
arithmetic, shorthand, and commercial law. Our Everybody's Dictionary is the
most popular pocket dictionary.

UNIVERSAL DICTATION COURSE



EIGHTEEN DIFFERENT SYSTEMS
—A BOOK FOR EACH SYSTEM



IT is made up of actual letters selected from 26 different
lines of business, such as the Wood and Coal, Furniture,
Paper and Printing, Loans and Collection, Lumber,
Building and Loan, Hardware, Wholesale Grocery, Im-
plement, Railroad, Dry Goods, Grain and Commission, Legal,
Court Reporting, etc., etc. Each business is separate and is
preceded by a vocabulary of words and phrases, selected
from the letters, with proper shorthand outline to be prac-
ticed by the student preparatory to taking dictation, but all
bound in one book.

It also contains Legal Forms and Court Testimony in
Civil and Criminal Cases arranged in the same manner, and
has a Dictionary and Reader in the back. The Dictionary is
a reference to all the vocabularies throughout the book.

It begins with easy letters and gradually becomes more
difficult. The greatest book and completest course that has
ever been prepared for the student and the teacher, and the
best plan for a stenographer to increase speed or prepare
for a new position. Price, postpaid $1.50.
