when I was quite a little girl. But
you don't remember. And the, reason

wanted te raise money for the freh-nir

bJhe STORY of a GREAT SUCCESS
Your junior partner
Before you buy a Portable
Typewriter, consider The
Noiseless Portable. We can't
premise that you will hear any
thing, but you will see a beau
liful, convenient typewriter that
combines quiet with the speed,
beauty of work, durability and
economy that only The Noiseless
The Noiseless Portable is the
only portable typewriter in the
world than can be used anywhere
at any time without disturbing
anybody. It weight only seven
pounds and is four and one-half
Descriptive circular mailed en
THE Noiseless Typewriter first came te the market in commercial
form five years age.
The idea of a quiet office, free from irritating typewriter noise, imme
diately appealed te business men.
But The Noiseless was new then. It had te prove that it was net
only quiet, but that it was equal or superior te any ether typewriter in
speed, in the character of its work, in ease of operation, in economy, and
It has proved these points beyond any question of doubt. Its sales have
grown faster than these of any ether typewriter during the same period of
its development. The Noiseless represents the greatest advance made in
the typewriter art during the past twenty years.
Te us, the most significant fact about the unprecedented success of The
Noiseless is the character of its recognition. The firms who have stand
ardized en The Noiseless after two, three and four years of actual
comparison, are among the leaders of American and Foreign Industry,
