"STAMMERING-SCHOOLS" 295 will entitle you to my GUARANTEE OF AN ABSOLUTE POSITIVE CURE/' The following offer by a Canadian principal is also very lenient: "Regarding the cost of tuition, the fee varies from $100.00 to $500.00 according to the severity of the case. Owing to the nature of your trouble, we will accept you for tuition for $100.00." Usually the fees are rapidly reduced if the stam- merer does not capitulate. The one hundred and forty dollar fee, mentioned above, ultimately shrinks to fifty-five: "Regarding terms for tuition my special Fall and Winter Term announcement (a copy of which I enclose) is self explana- tory. You will notice I am making a reduced rate to pupils who enter on or before Dec. 3oth. My regular price for tui- tion has been from One Hundred to Two Hundred Dollars according to the severity of the difficulty, in fact the average pupil has paid me about One Hundred and Twenty-five Dollars. "For the reason explained in the enclosed printed circular I have decided for a short time to reduce my rate, thus giving many who would otherwise be unable to come an opportunity to get cured of their difficulty. I am willing to accept you for treatment for Fifty-five Dollars on condition that you enter on or before Dec. joth, and feel sure that it will pay me to do this as when you return home cured, I am satisfied that others from your locality who may stammer, learning of your success and cure will gladly come to my institution for treatment."
