WORDS FROM THOSE
Office of U. S Attorney.
To whom it may concern:
About a year ago, I commenced a
course of the Byrne Simplified
Shorthand and Practical Book-
keeping in the Capital City Bus-
iness College al Guthrie, Okla.,
which I completed in less than
five months. As soon as I had
completed, they secured a posi-
tion for me with the Spurrior
Lumber Co,, where the Byrne
Shorthand held its own. I now
have a government, position in
the U. S, Attorney's office. This
position gives the Byrne Simpli-
fied a thorough test. I can read
lny notes liko print, never hav-
ing the least bit of trouble. I can
honestly recommend the Byrne
Simplified Shorthand and Book-
keeping, as taught in the Capi-
ral City Business College at
Guthrie. Okla., as the swiftest,
most simple, and liest system in
J. A. Nascho.
Sail Bernardino, Cal. (I 5, *08.
For the past throe years, I
have lieen a close student of
shorthand, and have thoroughly
mastered 14 systems (7 of ihe
most prominent Pitmanic sys-
tems, Gregg, Chartier, Byrne,
and four other minor systems),
and after a very impartial com-
parison of the 14 systems, have
no hesitancy in saying the Byrne
can bo learned iu one half tho
time required to learn any of the
other six, and in one-third the
time of any of the Pitmanic sys-
tems; it is much easier read and
can lie written with one and one
half times the speed that can bo
made in any of tho other thir-

I have examined carefully every
system of shorthand copyrighted
in this country, and have lie-
come convinced that she Byrne
is the best system in use.
