Stenotypewriting; t h e
of the age
Stenotypewriting is the writing of
the Byrne Simplified Shorthand with
the ordinary typewriter instead of
with a pencil. The principles of the
Byrne Simplified Shorthand have been
applied to a system of writing known
as Stenotypewriting, By this system
the stenographer is able to take dicta
tion on the Underwood, Royal, Oliver,
or any oter make of typewriter with
greater speed and accuracy than is
possible;with a pen or pencil. Just as
the typewriter has displaced the pen
and pencil for correspondence in the
business office, it will eventually dis.
place the pen or pencil for reporting in
the courts and handling the dictation
of the business office.
Our Prof. Byrne again takes the
lead in the stenographic art, being the
first author to put his system of short.
hand into type and. make it thoroughly
practical on the typewriter. This.
however, was not accomplished in a
day; it took years of hard work and
much careful study and thought.
Students enrolling in the Tyler Com
mercial College may take up the study
of the Byrne Simplified Shorthand,
either to be written with a pencil or on
a typewriter, as they prefer. How.
ever, anyone who has examined the
merits of stenotypewriting o r the
writing of the Byrne Shorthand on the
typewriter will never want to spend
the time necessary to learn to write
and read any system or shorthad that
is to be written with pen or pencil.
Stenotypewriting is a s legible as
print, because it is print. Every letter
is made mechanically correct. The
Tyler Commercial College will control
the teaching of stenotypewriting in
this part of the country just as it con.
trols the teaching of the other Byrne
systems, which have made the Tyler
Commercial College famous, and made
it the largest commercial training
school in America. If you want to get
the most modern method of taking
dictation or doing reporting it will be
necessary to attend the Tyler Commer.
cial College. Our work in stenotype.
writing is absolutely a money back
guarantee propositioo; any student,
who, at the completion of the course,
is not satisfied that it is better than
any system of shorthadd written with
a pencil or pen, upon request, may get
his tuition back.
Stenotypewriting is learned in less
time than shorthand, is more legible
and rapid and the day's dictation or re
porting is taken with much less
fotigue. Students of stenotypewriting
make better typewriter operators
than those who study shorthand, as
all the work of note taking done with
a pencil in shorthand, is done on the
typewriter while taking the course.
We make no extra charge for steno.
typewriting, the cost of the course is
the same as that of shorthand. fifty
dollars, for a complete scholarship and
seven dollars for books and supplies.

Printing Point Does No
Bob Up and Down
In an L. C. Smith & Bros. Typewriter the point
on the paper which is to receive the type impression is stationary at the in.
stant the type hits. The carriage does not bob up and down when the
shift is made to write capitals.
Because the type is shifted--not the carriate.
The only movement of the carriage is back and forth on its closely adjusted
ball bearing runways-and this does not take place while the print is being
made. There is no lifting of the carriage.
This is one reason why L. C. Smith' & Bros. typewriting is free from blurs
and every letter in the right place.
