Excerpt: " Something has been well said to the effect that a good stenographer is far safer from poverty than a great Greek scholar. The demand for stenographers, trainmasters' clerks and private secretaries on the railway lines of the United States was never greater or more insistent than at the present time, and this demand, naturally, will continue to grow with the great and ever expanding business of transportation ."
