Gazetteer Bulletin



/^\UR work in connection with the Gazetteer of Business Education has been
^^ seriously hampered by the dilatoriness of some friends in sending the
requisite data. If you have not sent photograph and personal data on the
lines indicated in THE JOURNAL from December to March, will you not
attend to this today. Meantime, we will say that the work is going right
ahead as fast as ever we can push it. The task is a severe one — all the more
reason for appreciating the indulgence of hundreds of friends.

Particulars as to the Gazetteer will be found in February and March
JOURNAL, or may be procured by writing to

THE JOURNAL, 229 Broadway, New York.




A new Typewriting instructor, to be ready in June. This ln» k is up to date, gives a series of
carefully graded lessons, and much general information. Lessons are devoted to capitalization, punctu-
ation, and letter writing. The book embraces business letters, envelope addresses, commercial and legal
forms, ruled tabular work, orn mental typewriting, sample borders, etc., many of the forms being print-
ed in two colors. Special features cover the subjects of Telegrams and Cipher Dispatches, Code Work.
Rough Draft, etc.

The book opens at the end and is so constructed that it may be used as a copy-holder, or it
may be hung over an easel or copy-holder.

The lessons proper will also be furnished in card form, at a nominal price.

Do not fail to write to us for an advance copy of this practical and attractive book.

The new catalogue is now ready, giving description of our popular books on the subjects of spell-
ing, letter writing, English, commercial law. shorthand, and bookkeeping, also the Twentieth Century
Business Practice and Everybody's Pocket Dictionary. It is free for the asking.

MISS ROSE L. FRITZ AT THE CHICAGO BUSINESS SHOW

The sixth National Business Show, held at Chicago in
March, was a great success. Public interest increases with
every event, and this is particularly true of the typewriting
contests. Miss Rose L. Fritz, of New York, proved her
right to the championship for the seventh consecutive time,
writing from dictation 3,021 words in 30 minutes, distancing
all previous records from dictation, writing more words, and
making fewer errors than any of her competitors.- A sum-
mary of the contests and the successful operators follows:

Contestants.

Dictation. 30 minutes.

Words written. Errors. Net total.

to demonstrate his ability to write as fast with a pen as
could a typist. Of course he came out behind, doing less
than half the work of the slowest typewriter operator.

Typewriter ribbons appear to follow the law of most
other inanimate things, namely, that it is possible to rest
them so that when apparently about worn out, they can be
revived. This is on the testimony of a man who uses a
machine for all his work. He says that when his ribbon
gets very pale he reels it off on a spool, wraps it in oil
paper, and puts it away in a damp, cool place. By the time
his next ribbon begins to show the same signs of wear he
takes the ribbon that be had put aivay and uses it again. —
Typewriter Topics.



TYPEWRITING TOPICS.

A New York daily calls nervousness in typists, caused
by the constant tapping of the fingers on the keyboard,
"typewriteritis."

Albert S. Osborn, of Rochester, N. Y., a professional
expert, testified at a Milwaukee trial that a certain docu-
ment alleged to have been drawn in 1891 was not made
until six years later, basing his opinion on defects of the
typewriter on which it was written, exaggerated as the
machine grew older. — Typewriter Topics.

An interesting novelty in connection with the typewriter
contest recently held in Paris was the presence of M.
Bourdet, a professional long hand copyist, who sought



W. E. DUNN
Walter Edgar Dunn started as office boy for The Pen-
man's Art Journal in 1888, and immediately got busy hand-
ling the flourished stags and eagles that were given as pre-
miums in those days. No wonder that ever since he has
been advancing by stag-like leaps and bounds and emulating
the proud bird of freedom's soaring stunts. His first advance
was to the position of subscription clerk, which he held until
promoted to the diploma department of the Ames & Rollinson
Company, at that time publishers of The Journal. It is in
his capacity as head of this department that he is best known
to the thousands of commercial school people throughout the
United States and- Canada, who have found it safe to. l"<>k
to him for diploma advice and supplies. Mr. Dunn has al-
ways been deeply interested in penmanship and all things
artistic, and is skilled in lettering and arranging artistic pic-
torial compositions. His is one of those rare dispositons
that turn to the cheery side of things as the sunflower turns
to the sun. His charming wife and four children comprise
his happy household. Among his particular diversions are
lawn tennis and deep sea fishing. Lately he has added an-
other — the convention habit — and derived so much pleasure
from it that he is likely to be a regular fixture at our pro-
fessional gatherings.



The Gazetteer will be the most comprehensive volume that has ever been published in connection with business education.

BOOKKEEPING



MODERN ACCOUNTANT— A short theory
course on a combination of Journal- Ledger plan.
It lays a splendid foundation, thoroly drills in the
elements and prepares for

WHOLESALE ACCOUNTING which is on the

individual practice plan. This is absolutely reliable
in the business customs it teaches and is the most
skillful handling of a business that you have seen.
If you would have a single pupil work out this set,
you would certainly use it. It introduces a number
of features that you must teach if your course is
complete and that you can find in no other work.
This is a good time to correspond with us about next
year's courses not only in bookkeeping, but arith-
metic, spelling, English, shorthand and typewriting.
It will be worth your while, for we have something
very interesting to say to you, and to show you, on
all these subjects.
