? ? Dear Sirs:
* On the evening of October 27th, this year, I entered a Dictaphone T
? Contest at the Annual Business Show held at the 69th Armory, this 4
X clty* I
X Thero were about 32 professional and 53 amateur contestants. A
T and each one was given a record supposed to contain the same die- ?>
T tatlon and narrative. X
The make of typewriter machine was entirely optional with the X
?? people entering this contest, and as I had been using the L. C. Smith V
-- machine in the office where I am employed for a short time, and was X
V pleased with it. I cntorcd said contest with a machine picked at ran
T dom from numerous machines in the office of the Law Reporting Com- X
. ? pany, where I have been employed for some time past. X
?* I had absolutely no other training for this contest than my daily T
work (which, owing to business depression all over, has afTcctcd mo X
? to the extent that I did not have much practice with that, either).
" Tho contest lasted for but five minutes, which is by far too short a X
+ period of time to do any real good work and make a big record, as X
;; It takes some time to get used to the dictator's voice, and tho idea V
T of the subject you aro writing on. X
y I contend that had I written for a longer period than five mln- v j
I; ntes, I could have made a much better record. T j
1 am not and never have been in the employ of the L. C. Smith & ?'
T Bros. Typewriter Company?have not been in commercial work for X
X at least ten years, although for a period of a few years in between X
y I did not do any typewriting.
X Some years ago I took second prize for direct dictation to tho X
J. machine contest work for 60 minutes, and stand ready to enter such X
-- contest again any time such is called, as I believe that is a better tost v
J of a typist's ability than copying, as tho typist's brains must go to X
work'ns we!! as the eyos and fingers, and with tho Dictaphone it means
T ears, eyes, hands and feet, too, for that matter, as the machine Is V
X made to start and stop by means of a foot trip. X

Dec. 25.
i On Christmas Eve. Mahomot Khau,
owtier of a shop noar tho British le
gation, was blown up by a bomb. An
inquiry established tho existence of
a Turko-Persion committee, organized
by Germans and Turks for the pur
pose of Involving Perela in the war
against Russia and England. The war
was intended to bear a holy charac
ter.
Tho committee met In the outskirts!
of Teheran where they manufactured
bombs, which were brought to the
ship of Mahomet Khan. According
to the plan the bombs were to bo
thrown Into tho carriages of tho Rus
sian, French aud Belgian ministers
and their suites as they wore return
ing from their customary Christmas
dinner and ball glvon at the British
legation. Besides these bombs, other
bombs and Mauser rifles were distri
buted among tho membors of tho com
mlttco, who were to join In after tho
plosion of tho first bombs.
- The committee calculated that af
ter tho assassination of the Diplomatic
Corps, Russian troops would be sent
from Kaavin and Baku to restore or
der and suppress tho revolution, fffid
thereby draw Persia Into war against
her will, but the explosion of the bomb
which killed Mahomet Khan destroy
ed the plot.
