We have but one
rate for all
.- , J KY A Yi W L
ALL UNUSED TUITION on any contract will be refundedg that is, should one contract for any amount
of tuition and use only a part of it, he would be charged S10 a month for the actual time he attended school
and the remainder of his money would be refunded.
A MONTH'S TUITION with us means a calendar month and not four Weeks. ALL TIME unavoidably
lost will be counted out. Should a pupil lose a week or more, the time will be deducted regardless of the
reason for the loss of time. . '
S10 a month in advance. S57 for six months in advance.
S375 for eight months in advance. S108 for' twelve months in advance.
Of the great number of students annually buying scholarships in the business colleges of the coast not
more than one-fourth of them use the entire time paid for. This means practically that three-fourths of
all these students lose from two weeks' to six month's tuition. Estimated at S510 a month they lose from
S5 to S60 by buying tuition in a school where there is no tuition refunded. .
Why should you buy a six-months' or a year's scholarship in a school which will not refund unused
tuition? You may not like the school, it may not be all it was representedg Hnancial misfortune may
overtake you and make it impossible for you to complete your courseg sickness or change of conditions
may make it impossible for you to use your tuition. Buy your scholarship in a school which has enough
faith in its work to oifer you a MONEY-BACK contract.

ur shorthand course.inc.ludes Practical Grammar and Correspondence, Spelling, Writing, Shorthand,
Typewriting, Duplicating, Billing, Filing, Mimeographing, Oflice Customs, Care of Machines, etc.
We use Dement's Pitmanic Shorthand as our text. It is recognized as one of the best of the Pitmanic
systems. While we use Dement's book as our text, our Principal, Mr. Misner, uses the best outlines
Q n culled from Graham, Ben Pitman and Dement. Special attentioniis given to our language work
in this department. The ability to write a good manuscript, paragraph, punctuate, and spell properly, are
requirements that every stenographer must meet. .
The subject of Typewriting is inseparable from Stenography, the two must go together. It is just as
as necessary for a stenographer to be able to type his notes rapidly, accurately and neatly as it is for him to
write them properly. The tpyewriter has become a necessity in every oflice.
All students are required to take the "All Finger" or "Touch" method of typewriting. The value of this
method has been demonstrated beyond a doubt.
Mr. E. D. Misner, principal of the Shorthand Department, is recognized as one of the best teachers of
Shorthand in the entire country. He has the following qualifications: He is a graduate of the Ionia QMichiganj
High School and has had two years' work in the University of Michigan. His Commercial and Shorthand
training was received at the Northern Indiana Business College, Valparaiso, Indiana, and at Ferris Institute,
Big Rapids, Michigan.
He has had much experience in Shorthand, both as a teacher and as a stenographer in Commercial
Miss Sperry, the first assistant in this department, has been with us for three years. She is a thoroughly
capable young woman. . . , l
Miss Lorraine Wolfe second assistant in thisdepartment, took her special training under Mr. Misner,

UR pupils secure good board and rooms in private families at the rate of S16 a month. We keep
on hand a. list of the private families who keep students boarders, and will gladly render students
any assistance they may require in securing proper accommodations. We are personally acquain-
ted with all of those who keep boarders for us, and know that the pupils will be surrounded by
proper home influence. 1
When young men and women leave home to attend school, it is very important that they should be
surrounded by the best possible environment. The private family boarding house is the nearest approach
to the home itself. Do not be deceived into believing that any club-house or dormitory system can take
the place of the private family. '
Our plan of boarding in private families where but few students will be thrown together in their home
life, is the most desirable arrangement possible. We urge you to investigate it. ,
