    The more [???] the reporter's mental discipline, the better his education, the greater his familiarity with the many and varied subjects with which he will be called upon to deal, the more easily and satisfactorily will his work be performed. And not this alone. "There is," as Charles Sumner once said, "a happiness in the acquisition of knowledge which surpasses all common joys"; and so I would urge reading and study upon the stenographer, not merely because these will afford him ever new and continually enlarging resources upon which he may draw in the exercise of his vocation, but because he will thus find the highest and purest satisfaction to be found in healthy things, and step by step advance to the fullness of the stature of the perfect man.

    That third outline in the first line is baffling me. It looks like the brief form for "three," but that doesn't make sense here.

    Side note:  They sure were idealistic in those days! 

      1. Thank you for posting this — the writing here is extraordinarily clear and easy to read. Proportions are consistent and clearly distinguished. 

         I will emulate this style. in my quest to advance to the fullness of the stature of the perfect man.  🙂
