1 Yes We Will Put Up 1
certain so-called business collego sqoiiib to onvv us because wo are
contimmlly taking thoir "vititims" into our colleges and teaching
thorn u standard system of Shorthand Typewriting oitlior touch
or sight Commercial Correspondence Aritlnnotic Grnmmiir Punctuation
Spoiling. Penmanship Ollico Pructico Uookkeoping Hanking Commercial
Law and all necessary business usages as arn used in practical business.
Wo noticed a littlo challenge published in the Oona Kiekor asking
their "so-called competitors who Imvo boon spouting oil'" about thoir snort
shorthand systoms "to put up or shut up." Of courso as usual tliov do
not intend to rofer to us howovor wo can tako a hint so wo will "put up."
Wo will accept thoir proposition under tho following conditions: Prof.
Draughon has deposited ono thousand dollars in the bank subject to their
check if thoy will do what thoy suy they will. Now if they will accept
this proposition and will promiso not to. tako ono of their "victims" that
has loft off tho principles of shorthand and has solectod ono hundred and
fifty word signs only and learned to write tho ono hundred und lifty words
per minuto to tho exclusion of any knowledgo of shorthand whatovor so os
to mako a show among pooplo who aro not on to thoir trick wo will muko
tho test at our ollico in San Angolo Texas and wo will add to thoir proposi-
tion tho price of tho ico croam refreshments for all tho people of San Angolo
Wo uesiro to say to the public that wo havo beon in tho businoss oollogo
business for many years and ovory time wo open a business collego in a new
territory tho abovo named people through ouvy and thinking tho pooplo
do not know better try to make tho people think thoy aro "Tho Only."
Thov think "a stitch in timo saves nine." Thoy begin on us early. Why
do thoir stenographers nevor reuch tho halls of congress? Ours do.
Wo will givo anyone a check for S500 if ono will provo thut tho above
collego pooplo havo a hotter courso of anything than tho ones wo teach in
San Angolo Texas.
Now if theeo pooplo haven't a courso of instructions that will stand tho
test without so much fighting and contention wo will arrange for them to
uso our course provided thoy will enter into a written contract to uso it
