Figure GATLING GUN FOGLEMAN A Magnetic Rapid-Fire Speaker A man who has trained more salesmen and delivered more ginger talks in more business institutions than any other one man in America. Address: BIGGER BUSINESS LECTURE BUREAU , 1604 Republic Building, Chicago As an Orator on the Philosophy and Ethics of Business Getting and Business Building As an Analyst of Success and Failure in Business Life—Few Men Surpass Him In his fifteen years experience as a public lecturer he has addressed many of the largest national, state and local business conventions and institutions on the continent with the request invariably for a return engagement. A leader of men himself, he has the ability to tell what constitutes mastership in this direction. He can help you solve YOUR BIG PROBLEM. To listen to him for an hour means a service to a community, an institution or an individual that can be estimated in more than DOLLARS AND CENTS. Lecture Subjects Building Bigger Business. Suggestion in Salesmanship and Advertising. An Analysis of Success and Failure. Personality in Salesmanship. The Winning Man. Sizing Up the Other Fellow. RECENT PRESS NOTICES A revelation to all present. A dynamic, compelling personality which swayed the whole audience.— Daily Record, Greensboro, N. C. Fogleman's Lecture a Genuine Treat. An event of moment. It would have been a good thing if every merchant and salesman could have heard this lecture.— Leader-Tribune, Marion, Ind. If we do not become bigger and better men because of this address, it is not Fogleman's fault. If we do not go home with the idea that we will do a broader and better business, it is not Fogleman's fault. It is one of the most forceful addresses on salesmanship it has ever been our pleasure to hear.— Journal, Crawfordsville, Ind. FOGLEMAN PLEASES . He speaks with the rapidity of an exhaust on a racing car going at the rate of more than one hundred miles an hour. But his speed only enhanced what he said, for it was the unanimous opinion of the business men present that Fogleman gave not only practical ideas, but drove them home with force.— The News-Courier, Charleston, S. C. The lecture was the clearest and most forceful exposition of the principles of business efficiency and the gospel of service that has yet been delivered here. He has a lot of the pepperino and ginger of the Sundayesque deliverances.— Daily News, Greenville, S. C. The best lecture ever heard in Newberry. There was not an idle word of the many thousands he spoke; not a weak point in the whole talk; no repetition; not a dull minute. There is no telling what a stimulus this lecture has been to Newberry—to her business men and her workers in every department of industry.— Observer, Newberry, S. C. As a chief feature of last night's program Gatling Gun Fogleman jammed into a little over an hour a mass of philosophy, business advice and candid suggestions that vibrated in the minds of his hearers like an abnormal earthquake shaking a seismograph, but, at the same time, with the harmony of a symphony orchestra.— Dispatch, Wilmington, N. C. HARRY FOGLEMAN WAS ROYAL TREAT — ONE OF THE GREATEST LECTURERS EVER HEARD IN AUGUSTA . He held the attention of his audience so closely one could have heard the proverbial pin drop. It was a marvelous lecture and the big audience was carried away by Mr. Fogleman's eloquence and could have listened for hours.— Augusta Chronicle, Augusta, Ga. EDITORIAL: FOGLEMAN MAKES A HIT . There wasn't a business man present at the big chautauqua tent last night who isn't ready to agree that he has gotten his money's worth out of his ticket after hearing the address of Harry Fogleman, and that all the rest of the entertainment of the Mikado and Creatoré's Bank will be velvet. — Evening Telegram, Rocky Mount, N. C. The term live wire in its truest sense fits Fogleman precisely. Although he spoke for over an hour his audience last night would have stood for his going on in the same way for the reason that his lecture was helpful and inspirational.— Florida Times-Union, Jacksonville, Fla. Decidedly the feature of the Chautauqua. Often overwhelmed by volleys of applause. He successfully held his audience for two hours while he said as much as an ordinary speaker could have said in four and a half hours.— The Ledger, Columbus, Ga. FOGLEMAN THRILLS GRIFFINITES WITH A MAGNIFICENT ADDRESS AT REDPATH CHAUTAUQUA LAST NIGHT. Rapid as is his articulation every word is heard with perfect distinctness. Made a profound impression upon his hearers, all being carried away with his eloquence and ability to impart his knowledge in a most convincing manner. He's a live wire.— Griffin Daily News, Griffin, Ga. Held the audience for nearly two hours. For rapidity of speech, energy of expression and enthusiasm for the subject, Mr. Fogleman is a record breaker. One does not wonder that he is an inspiration to the salesman and the business man.— Morning Herald, Durham, N. C. A rapid, incisive talker who knows what he wants to say and says it impressively.— Rome Tribune-Herald, Rome, Ga. Awakening the Business World A master orator and his address was one that every business man and every man with any spark of ambition should have heard. Held his audience spellbound during the entire lecture.— Augusta Herald, Augusta, Ga. TALKS TO GREAT CROWD . Fogleman exceeded the speed limit every minute of his allotted time, and only once said, Please excuse my dust. — Evening Post, Salisbury, N. C. Raleigh never got so much in one lecture before as Fogleman gave a large crowd last night. Not a word was lost or muffled, but they came direct. There was enough in the lecture to have made half a dozen ordinary lectures.— The Times, Raleigh, N. C. Fogleman proved a veritable gatling gun in his wonderfully forceful lecture. For an hour and a half every man, woman and child was held by his logic, his startling revelation of the results of old methods and his clear enunciation of the essential things in modern business and social life.— Daily Observer, Fayetteville, N. C. EDITORIAL: A MASTERLY ADDRESS . An address that will have a wholesome effect on the business life of Winston-Salem for a generation was the one delivered at the Chautauqua last night by Mr. Harry L. Fogleman on the subject, Business Building and Salesmanship. This address is of lasting value; his hearers will take stock of themselves, doubtlessly, and many will make efforts to remedy their deficiencies. But greater than his hints on how to improve the business service was the underlying doctrine of men's interdependency, and the duties they owe to each other, to their employers and employes, to the community and to God.— The Journal, Winston-Salem, N. C. GATLING GUN FOGLEMAN A HIT . He hypnotized the large audience last night by his matchless dynamic eloquence. Fogleman combines an unerring knowledge of human nature with an amazing grasp of psychology and a Lewis machine gun vocabulary.— Daily Times-News, Gadsden, Ala. He is a typical American, with ideas and thoughts and plans and suggestions which flow as uninterruptedly as one of Billy Sunday's assaults on the devil. This vivid, red-blooded, intensely interesting speaker talks in epigrammatic quick style. He propounds a serious suggestion with the same agility that he springs in lighter vein a funny story.— The News, Birmingham, Ala. This Gatling Gun Fogleman, a startling sort of combination of Billy Sunday, George M. Cohan and the book agent who sold the Methodist minister an unexpurgated edition of de Maupassant—this Fogleman sold something to an enthralled and hypnotized audience, who went away dazed and wondering what they had purchased. He sold them the brand new faculty of regarding business no more as an orderly arrangement of cash register figures, but a wonderful science and a beautiful art, and an eternal clash of warm human impulses.— The Ledger, Birmingham, Ala. His deep message was handled with a master mind and his utterances drove a message home to the business element of our community in a way that is sure to produce fine after-effects. His lecture was so well thought of that it will result in an Efficiency Day in Huntsville.— Sunday Paper, Huntsville, Ala. To hear the speaker firing away with a most convincing personality one could readily understand why he is called the Billy Sunday of the business world. The Advertiser, Montgomery, Ala. Fogleman made absolutely good on his advance notices last night. The most pungent, vital and interesting exposition of the principles of business success ever delivered in this city. When Chautauqua and business organizations bring such they are doing any community a distinct service.— The Sun, Jackson, Tenn. Editorial: If the backers of the Paducah Chautauqua never performed more of a public service than putting Fogleman, who spoke last night, before the people of the city, they will have rendered a service of inestimable value. A business man with a spark of intellect and a grain of principle, hearing Fogleman, could not fail to receive a substantial benefit from his rapid-fire expressions. There is common sense, honesty, and Christian virtue in Fogleman's doctrine, and an application of the principles and methods he advocates to any business will produce a better and a more worthy business. He is the most able exponent of the square deal and the most earnest advocate of intelligent salesmanship ever heard from a local platform. Strength to his arm and thanks to the people who made his presence here possible. Paducah business will reflect his influences for a long time to come.— Evening Sun, Paducah, Ky. He is a veritable human dynamo, pulsating with energy and vibrant with magnetism and for an hour and a half he held his audience.— The Inquirer, Owensboro, Ky. ROTARIANS HEAR STRONG TALK . He caught the attention of the audience at once. He launched into his subject and swayed the Rotarians from the start to the finish.— The American, Nashville, Tenn.

Every business man and every clerk, every professional man, every housekeeper in the county should have heard this grand lecture.— The Daily Herald, Columbia, Tenn. Fogleman poured volley after volley of the shells of good business into employer and employe [sic employee]Wednesday night. The large number of business men applauded with cordial approval. His lecture was spiced here and there with splendid humor that carried with telling points. Members of the Knoxville Ad Club attended the lecture in a body.— The Sentinel, Knoxville, Tenn. A gem in every respect and was a decided hit. Journal-Herald, Waycross, Ga. The most brilliant lecture ever given in Athens.— Athens Banner, Athens, Ga. Fogleman fired his audience with interest and enthusiasm. His ideas seemed somewhat akin to those of the great editorial writer, Herbert Kaufman, and delivered with the force and directness of Billy Sunday.— Charleston American, Charleston, S. C. Fogleman is some talker. Every business man and employe [sic employee]of Sumter should have heard him.— Daily Item, Sumter, S. C. FOGLEMAN GIVES ADMIRABLE TALK . All the men in the audience were enthusiastic about Mr. Fogleman and at the conclusion of the talk he was cheered to the echo.— The State, Columbia, S. C. A STIRRING TALK BY MR. FOGLEMAN . Mr. Fogleman stands one up before himself, so to speak, and in rapid, yet scientific manner, dissects the human being as he is and this clinic is followed with hints and suggestions that make it one of the most lively and intensely interesting things a crowd of men and women can wish for. He is bright, snappy, serious, and never at a loss for a word.— Index, Greenwood, S. C. Enthusiasm from Coast to Coast Prolonged applause greeted the close of Fogleman's address, which was openly declared the most practical the local Rotary has ever had.— Democrat, Allentown, Pa. Fogleman delivered greatest lecture ever heard. He was previously unknown here; today the name of Fogleman is on every tongue. If he should remain tonight, two tents would not accommodate the audience. — W. O. McIntyre, Mayor, Danville, Ky. There never appeared in our midst one who so completely swayed our people. Come again, Mr. Fogleman, your old home town is proud of you as one of her noble sons.— Rotary Smile, Allentown, Pa. Fogleman is a Sheldon, Hubbard and Marden rolled into one. His self-lubricating, ball-bearing, nonskid facts were put across in a masterly manner, and the results of his lecture will be felt in this community long after he is forgotten. It was one of the greatest efficiency talks ever heard in these parts.— Free Press, Easton, Pa. Last night the theatre was crowded to the doors to hear Fogleman, who, for an hour and a half, kept up what was doubtless the most wonderful flow of language and business sense that has ever been heard in this city.— Argus, Easton, Pa. Fogleman held the closest attention of his hearers for over an hour and a half. Many of the guests said they would not have missed it for $100.— Daily Sentinel, Fitchburg, Mass. Fogleman electrified the Commerce Club. With vivid words he drove home epigrams in startlingly rapid succession. Every paragraph brought out suggestions of vital interest to modern business.— Gazette, St. Joseph, Mo. Go on, go on, cried the members of the Commerce Club. So Fogleman took off his coat and pitched in again, talking like mad and snapping out his statements with emphasis.— Presse, St. Joseph, Mo. The striking arguments made by Fogleman has never been paralleled. A gifted orator, a splendid thinker, and a masterly style.— Starchroom, New York City.

FOGLEMAN IN RAPID FIRE OF BUSINESS PEP . Gatling Gun Fogleman lived up to his reputation Saturday night. Many of the stores closed in order that merchants and clerks might hear Fogleman, and those who did not do so were the losers.— Daily Tribune, Grand Haven, Mich. Harry L. Fogleman for two hours stood before an immense crowd and hurled home telling blows, as few, if any, men on the platform are able to do.— Chronicle, Muskegon, Mich.

Every word was practical.— Enquirer, Battle Creek, Mich. Harry L. Fogleman is to the salesmanship and business world what Billy Sunday is to the religious and evangelical world.

Gatling Gun Harry Fogleman discharged a volley of ten thousand fiery verbal projectiles in a rapid fire talk of two hours last night before an audience of 1,000 at the Trinity Auditorium.

His address was a remarkable portrayal of the ideals, ethics and qualities that go toward business success.— The Tacoma Daily Ledger. Harry L. Fogleman, of Chicago, last night treated seven hundred Minneapolis wholesale and retail business men at the Pence Auditorium to an exhibition of the Billy Sunday of Business.

These two talks have been among the most interesting ever heard here in Pueblo.— The Pueblo Chieftain. The audience was interested—greatly interested in what he had to say, but no more in the subject matter than in Fogleman's own personality. Fogleman is a crusader with an intense hatred of business inefficiency. He has very decided views on what qualities are needed in making a good salesman.— Post-Intelligencer, Seattle, Wash.
