time and exertion.
It produces, with speed and certainty, in clearly legible

To every one who has writing to do. In business circles its
desirability is assured. Lawyers and journalists cannot do
without it. Professional and scientific men realize its worth
to them. The author and thinker find it invaluable. It con

reducing to a minimum the mechanical labor of writing, and
distributing it among all the fingers of both hands. Writer's
cramp disappears where it is used. It- presents the printed
appearance of the work to the mind at once.

any one tp write upon it readily. Thereafter it is only a mat
