Optnlotu of Them Dictated to One of Them
by Aeoompltahrd Stenographer.
More trash and nonsenso are written
nbont typewriter girls by peoplo who
do not nuclei-stand what good typewrit
ing is or how to dictate to a typewriter
than about any other profession or any
other business in which either men or
women aro engaged today. The fact of
the matter is that typewriting is worth
anywhere from f 3 a week up to $20 or
$25, which is sometimes paid as a week
ly; salary to expert typewriters who have
no knowledge of shorthand.
It is no unusual thing for typewriters
to earn at folio work from dictation by
stenographers f 3 an hour and over, and
the finest experts are worth every cent
of that amount of money. Among stenog
raphers ft an hour is the ruling rate,
and for that f 1 a good typewriter with
an export dictator will transcribe from
30 to 40 folios an hour of testimony.
In some. cxcs even 40 folios an honr of
solid matter have been dictated. Forty
folios is two columns of The Sun, and
of tho men who write about dictating
to typewriters as though they knew
abont it there aro probably not half a
dozen in the country who can dictate so
Many years ago tho writer was em
ployed as short hand amanuensis by
Ueorgo Alfred Townscnd, well known
as Uatlit" who habitually dictated to
him in shorthand two columns an hour
and did it every day in tho week two
hours a day for months nt a time, in
dicating every full stop, semicolon,
quotation mark and paragraph If
"Uath" dictates to a typewriter now
and has ono of the best in tho business,
no doubt ho can dictate from a column
and a half to two columns an hour of
original matter, and the writer knows
of 110 other man who can do that. Of
courso there are plenty of incompetents
Who pose as typewritera and who bring
the busness into discredit by their poor
work. Fur many years tho writer has
b-.-en thrown in contact with expert
typewriters in his business as an official
stenographer. Iu view of the many gibes
and sneers in which newspaper writers
indulge on tho subject of typewriter
operators of the femiuino gender, it is
matter of simplo justice to say that the
Women with whom ho has been associ
ated in his business have bcn without
exception well educated, refined, capa
ble of doing rapid and accurate work,
who attended strictly to business and did
not waste time with frivolous remarks.
It si-ems unfair to judge of any busi
ness or profession by the weaklings en
gaged therein, whether tho work 1

or typewriting, and anyone who cannot
accomplish twice as mnch dictating to
