The Mysterious Power of

Pelmanism Disclosed

A New and Easy Process that Practically

Forces Men and Women to Succeed


your thinking power—your money-making power-and prove to you that your desires and ambitions can easily and quickly be made realities.

THAT is this mysterious power of Pel-
manism? What is this great world-

wide movement that is performing so many thousands of apparent miracles everywhere-that is enabling such great numbers of men and women to attain undreamed of heights of financial, social, and intellect l success?

Fir t of all, Pelmanism is different from anything you have ever heard of. It is not an experiment. It is not a fad. It is not an untried theory-for it has stood the test of twenty-seven years. It is not a business. It is not a profession. It is not a "mind healer." There is nothing to which Pelmanism can be compared.

But it will prove to you, as it has proved to over 500,000 others, that you can achieve Success in a big way-that right now you

have just as good a brain
as most of the men who are
earning from two to ten
times more than you—then
reveal a method of using it
that will practically force
you to succeed in spite of

What World Famous Men Say

About Pelmanism
Judge Ben B. Lindsay: "Pelmanism is a big,
vital, significant contribution to the mental
life of America. I have the deep conviction
that it is going to strike at the very roots of
individual failure, for I see in it a new power,
a new driving force."
Sir Rider Haggard, whose books have been
translated into every language: "I recommend
Pelmanism to those who, in the fullest sense,
really wish to learn and to become what men
and women ought to be."
George Creel: "Talk of quick and large salary
raises suggests quackery, bu with my own
eyes I saw bundles of letters telling how Pel-
manism had increased earning capacities. I
say deliberately and with the deepest convic-
tion that Pelmanism will do what it promises
to do."

Secrets of Achievement There is no "magic" about Pelmanism. There is no mystery about Pelmanism itself. Further, it does not promise anything but what it already has accomplished in thousands of cases.

It is not “high brow;" it is meant for everyone. It is easily understood; its principles are easily applied. You will find it of deep and fascinating interest. You will be gripped by its clear logic. You will begin to feel its mysterious effect almost immediately. Many have said that even after the first hour they were conscious of a startling change in their whole attitude toward life.

To thousands Pelmanism has been the means of greater success in life. To thousands it has been a stepping stone to financial independence. To thousands it has led the way to unexpected achievement.

Without the principles of success embodied in Pelmanism no one ever has succeeded-no one ever will succeed. This, of course, does not mean that

one can gain great success in life unless he is a Pelmanist, No, but it does mean that with Pelmanism your success will be surer; your success will come sooner; your success will be far SIR RIDER HAGGARD greater!

Your Unsuspected




Your brain has wonderful potentialities. Hidden in you are powers you never dreamt you possessed, which if put to work will bring results that will astonish you. This is not idle supposition. It is cold, hard, indisputable fact, born out again and again in thousands of others.

Pelmanism will unfold these hidden powers to you and show you how to use them. It will make you acquire just those qualities that are necessary for success in every conceivable business or intellectual pursuit. You will be filled with a new dynamic force. Failure will become impossible-Success, inevitable.

them down in black and white, in clear,
easy form that everyone can apply to his
or her own needs.

This was not the work of a year-or of
ten years. It was the work of a lifetime.
It entailed endless research-countless ex-
periments—tireless effort. Whether this
effort was justified can best be judged by
what Pelmanism has actually accomplished
in hundreds of thousands of cases. In-
stances of quick promotion through Pel-
manism are countless. Cases of doubled
salary in less than six months and trebled
salary in less than a year are by no means
unusual. In exceptional cases there have
been salary increases of 700, 800, and even
1,000 per cent.

But Pelmanism not only holds forth the promise of increasing your earning capacity. Its aim is broader than that. It points the way to cultural success as well as material.

It will enable you to gain a greater power of self-expression, in thought, word, and action. It will develop your originality and imagination to a surprising degree. It will teach you how to organize your thoughts and ideas; how to acquire a keen, infallible memory; how to acquire a masterful personality.

It places before you, in clear and simple form the latest discoveries of Business Psychology. It reveals the secrets of what Psycho-Analysts call "The Subconscious," and shows 'you how the mysterious life that is lived below the mind's conscious level is one that affects your moneymaking, your general ideas, your attitude toward the world, and your happiness.

But best of all Pelmanisrn will develop

By PAUL SCOTT MOWRER The Public Ledger, Phila., quotes Mr. Mowrer's definition of the Balkanization of central and southeastern Europe as “The creation, in a region of hopelessly mixed races, of a medley of small states, with more or less backward populations, economic ally and financially weak, proud, covetous, and intriguing, a continual prey to the machinations of the great powers, and to the violent promptings of their own passions," and says: “The book is important if not indispensable to every student of international politics." The New York Herald says: " Mr. Mowrer has handled the most complicated and diverse political questions which have ever troubled the world with clarifying, lucidity, and has packed into his treatment a mine of understanding and wisdom which might indeed constitute a formula for their possible adjustment. . . . We can only hint at the riches of this invaluable volume." The Pittsburgh Dispatch says: “For those who realize that the passing year is to witness some momentous decisions touching the American arrangement of its foreign relations, the unusually clear expositions of the volume will be particularly welcome . . . an exceptionally valuable book. MAURICE FRANCIS Egan, in the New York Times calls it: “The best book yet printed on the most important European conditions."




By LINCOLN C. ANDREWS Because of the great success which attended the use of his little book on officers' training camps during the war, Brig. Gen. Andrews was invited to write the textbook for a new West Point course in the psychology of command, which is published under the title “ Military Manpower.” Its study by officers of the New York Guard was recommended by Maj. Gen. O'Ryan in general orders. Manpower” is an adaptation of the same principles to the needs of executives in industrial and commercial life.

One peal of a great bell is as much like another as is one print of the Mimeograph like its original. The finest of workmanship is the Mimeograph’s habitual product. But one can no more get neat work from a slovenly and badly aligned typewriter than one can get excellent duplicates from a dirty and mis-managed Mimeograph. No finer reproductions of letters, forms, blanks, charts, diagrams, etc., can be made than the Mimeograph will deliver under ordinary care. But trained skill is not an essential. Five thousand exact duplicates the Mimeograph delivers an hour-and at almost negligible cost. Every day it is saving huge sums for industrial and educational institutions throughout the world. Let us show you how it will save for you. Get booklet “O-6” from A. B. Dick Company, Chicago - and New York.
