Dayton, Ohio, October, 1882.
DEAR Sin: ,

There is a large and growing demand for educated young men and
young women who are thoroughly qualified for the most difiicult and
highest paid work, as reporters, and law and business amanuenses. To
acquire the necessary training for this takes from six to nine months of the
most systematic and severe drill. The opportunities for getting this in this
country are so limited that, as compared with the places to fill, there are
but few qualified Phonogrziphers, and these are sought for at high prices,
' in many cases earning salaries of $2,000 to $3,000 per year.

As the inclosed circular states, I have just established a Department of
Phonography in the Miami Commercial College, in which to give this training.

0 And being fully aware that the permanent success of such a school must
come only after a body of its stu lents have proven the adequacy of its
course by holding places which Will show their ability, Iam seeking a class
of twenty-five intelligent and ambitious young men and young women,
from seventeen to thirty-five years of age, who will place themselves in my
care for such training as will-enable me to place them with the best railroad
companies and other business corporations in the country.

To the class of twenty—five so selected, I will give from six to nine
months’ instruction, and take my pay only after they have earned it after
completing the course. They to pay me $10 cash at the beginning for text
books and stationery, and $100 when earned as stated; giving me a written
guarantee to stay the required time, and place themselves at my disposal
for situations when through.

Dr. Clifton, the instructor in charge, is one of the best Phonographers

g in the United States. He is a graduate of Oxford University, England, and
in addition to his eminent ability as a scholar, is a most accomplished in-

Although the first outlay for such a department will be considerable,
I am induced to undertake it with the hope of building up an institution.
of the highest class, which the businsss men of the United States will look
to to supply them a large part of the skilled assistants they may need, and
also believing that the opportunity it will afford for entering a career ot use-

- fulness and profit will be appreciated by a large class of educated persons
who do not care to enter the professions.

If you know of any ambitious college or high-school graduates, or other
educated persons, whom you think would be interested in such an offer, I
will be obliged if you will call their attention to this circular, and Will give
me their names and addresses.

The necessary outlay for board in excellent private families, for. nine
months, together with the necessary outlay for washing, etc., and including
everything but tuition, need not be over $200.

Believing that such an enterprise is of more than individual interest, I
take the liberty of addressing those havinga general interest in educational

crisis concerning the art and its capabilities, and its cery general
» usefulness, and easiness of acquit-ement.
__’—fl ~

Phonography is the art of writing by sound. It is based on the most philosophical classification of the sounds
made by the organs of speech, and is a highly scientific mode of representing those sounds. It was invented by Isaac

. Pitman, of Bath, England, and was first published by him in 15.37. It has stood the test of the scrutiny, investigation.

' . and criticism of the ablest philologists and scholars of the day, and they have. unhesitatingly awarded it their unre-
served praise for its simplicity, utility, and philosophical beauty. Over a million copies of a single one of Mr. Pitman’s
text books have been issued, and many thousands in England and America daily practice the art. Nearly every rail-
way company in the two countries employ phonographic amanuenses and clerks, and a great and increasing demand
for them has arisen from the manufacturers and business men. A number are so employed in this city. Also, official
reporters are appointed in hundreds of courts in counties in all parts ot‘ the country, by authorization of the State
legislatures, and hundreds of lawyers and law students use it. in their daily work. The proceedings of Parliament,

8 ‘ Congress, and all other deliberative bodies are reported in Phonography, and newspapers universally depend on it.

: Clergymen use it in writing their sermons, Physicians in reeordingtheir cases, and pupils in the schools in writing their

, exercises. In all of these cases a saving of one-half to three-fourths of the labor of doingr the same work in longhand
being effected. Its importance as a labor-saver can hardly be overestimated. and the great demand for experts, botl.
men and women, makes it a highly desirable avocation.

IT IS EASILY Lnauxnn. it can by acquired by any child who can read common print, and to write sixty to eighty
words a minute requires but a few weeks study of several hours a day.

Horace Mann, one of the most eminent educators of our times, says: “ The study ot' Phonography should precede
all other elementary branches in our schools, for a proper understanding of the enunciation of the elements of speech
will promote a proper enunciation of words that. make up those elements. The insullieient training on these elements
in our educational institutions is the principal cause of so many palpable defects in speech.”

Coleridge, the great English poet and philosopher, said: “ My father taught me at an early age the use of short-
hand characters, and I hardly know any species of instruction that in after life has stood me in greater stead.”

Most of the leading educators of the country have given equally strong indorsements.

‘ Dr. John Hancock, Superintendent of Dayton Schools, said recently at a National convention, “ That Phonography
is one of the things that should be taught. to young men,” and predicted that the time is coming when it will supercede
the cumbrous longhand.

Hon. Leonard Sweet, a leading lawyer of Chicago, and an accomplished classical scholar, in a recent address said :
”A boy applies to me for aplace. He is bright, sharp, smart, and fresh from school. I ask, ‘what can you do 1” He

‘ replies, ‘I can read Homer, Hesiod, the Greek tragedies, scan Virgil, am well up in mythology, chemistry, botany,
and geology.’ I say, ‘could you keep the books of my ottice '3’ ‘No,’ he says. ‘I thought it best to stick strictly
to my college course, and common things, like book-keeping, I could learn afterward.’ I say, ‘can you take letters in
shorthand, from my dictation, and then print them on the type-writer? He says he never thought of learning
shorthand or type-writing, and I am compelled to tell him he can not help us."

the iiiosl succesdiil teacher of Pimnngriipliy lll the country? filltl scores of testimonials from his former pupils, and
similar to those of Mr. W. W. Jones, of Kentucky, and Mr. Everett, of Georgia, given above, could be adduced to attest
his skill. He is a graduate of Oxford l'iiivorsiiy, England, and brings to the work an unusual degree of scliolursliip ’
and an extensive acquaintance with pliilolngy.

One course is arranged to qualify students for professional reporting, as law and newspaper reporters, and in all
other capacities, demanding from one hundred and fifty to two hundred words a minute. This course will take from
srx to nine months of study, from four to six hours a day, and will include instructions on the ’l‘ypewriter. The most
thorough training will be given in all the details necessary for the highest and best paid class of work. Dr. Clifton’s
long experience as a professional reporter, and the special attention he has given to the best methods of instruction,
Will Insure the best results. Special training will be given in Law, Railroad, and other departments of reporting.

A More Limited Course will be given, which will be arranged to qualify students for writing seventy to eighty words
a minute, which is the rate necessary to do amanuensis work, and for all the purposes of the lawyers, doctors, and other
professional men, and of ladies, students, and pupils in the public schools. It will be given in three sections: first, an
introductory course of twelve lessons; second, a course to reach a speed of forty to fifty words a minute ; and third, a
course to reach seventy to eighty words a minute.
For Me First Section, 55 will be e/zorged, and for the Second, 515, and fire T/zird, 590 ,' or for file
tiaree sections, requiring tin-ee- Zo four mantles, (1 Merge of 6‘40 in all. ‘
The lessons may be taken at the rate of two, three or four each week, as may be desired. , l
The class hours for this section will be as follows, viz: 9 a. m. to 10 a. m., 2 p. m. to 3. p. m., and 7:30 p. m. to 9 p. l
11]., daily, excepting Saturday. 1
Arrangements have been made to provide excellent board in private families at four dollars per week, for those 3;
desiring it. i
A careful inquiry into the present condition of phonographic instruction in the United States, shows that while i
there is a great and growing demand from Railroad companies, and large businesses in all parts of the country for g
amanuenses who can write eighty to one hundred and fifty words a minute accurately, and who can readily transcribe :
them in grammatical well constructed longhand, the supply ol such is quite limited. ,
Hundreds have taken up the study, expecting to reach the necessary grade of efficiency in a few weeks of 3,
unsystematic study, who have failed to hold their places, and have brought reproach upon the profession by undertaking :
work they could not perform. The business community is now looking to thoroughly managed training schools to furnish E
fully qualified writers. The high reputation the i
has sustained the past twenty years as a training school for the highest class of Book Keepers, and the fact that
hundreds of the graduates are now holding positions of the highest trust- and responsibility in all parts of the country as ’
Cashiers, Secretaries, Book Keepers, &c., is the best guarantee that the best training will be given here, and that our ‘
grailuites will be sought for by the leading Railway Companies and Business Men everywhere.

W. H. SUNDERLAND. Associate Principal. With a Corps of Competent Instructors.
The college is now in the twenty-first year of a prosperous existence. It has educated for the practical duties of a ‘
business life, thousands of young men who are now engaged in all parts of the country as Cashiers of Banks, Secretaries
of Insurance and Manufacturing Companies, and as Accountants for extensive Mercantile, Commission, and other
houses; About three hundred are employed in this city alone.
It is one of the oldest institutions in the country, and ranks among the best in all particulars. The Principal has
had continuous charge for over twenty years, and the Associate Principal has been his efficient assistant the past .
twelve years. . '
The handsome apartments in the new building of the Firemens Insurance Company, reached by means of the
elevator, are not surpassed by those of any other college in the country; and the facilities in all particulars are of the ,
first order. A most systematic and comprehensive course of business practice follows a broad course of theory instruc-
tion. ,
The recent appointment of l’rincipal Wilt as Postmaster of the city will in no way deprive the college of his serv- ;
ices, or lessen the efficiency of the instruction. He has ample time to actively and constantly co-operate with the corps ' '
of assistants in the work of teaching, and the well-earned reputation of the institution—gained the past twenty—one _
years—will be most carefully maintained. '
A business education, such as is here given, is as much a necessity to every young person, about _to enter business,
as is preliminary training to a lawyer, doctor, or any other professional man.
The eourse of instruction is available in all departments of business, and not only affords its possessor protection
1 from fraud and loss, but puts him in possession of hundreds of opportunities for profitable employment and promotion
which would otherwise be closed to him.
The demand is rapidly increasing for trained young persons, and graduates~both young men and young women—-
are constantly being placed in excellent positions. -
Inquirer's are referred to the leading Banks and Business Houses of Dayton for information as to the standing of
the College, and as to the practical character of its instruction. Circulars giving full information as to terms, time, etc.,
may be had on application. '
There are no vacations, and students can enter at any time. Four months is the usual time required to complete
the course of study, and the charges are very moderate.
