The Acaiemy of Siicncc.
It is written that among the vari
oii hools of tirccian yhilot-ophy
existed one known as "the Academy;
of Sili'iire," composed of a huudrcd
men, each member pledged to the
purpose uf the school. To themj
calm one seeking admission. Their j
list of membership was closed, aud!
their head, calling the would be neo- j
phyte before the assembled uudi-;
eiice, showed hitu without a word!
an urn so tilled with water that uot
a single drop could be added. The:
ueophyte, reading the message, bow
ed sileutly, started to withdraw, but
hekitated and returned. Picking a
petal from a flower, he dropped it
ou the briuiuiiug bowl so dexter
ously that it floated without dis
lodging the slijjhtet particle of the
liquid. The membership of the
Academy of Silence became 101.

IF typewriters were machines run by mechanical means in
stead of human hands, you vould find that, with a ghen amount
of power, a Monarch could be run at a higher maintained speed
than other typewriters.
Run by "girl power," you find that the Monarch is run at
a higher all-day average speed than other typewriters, and
without a "tapering off," from fatigue toward the day's end.
Both these truths are due to the fact that

This in turn means increased production per machine and de
