A LADY, AN EXPERIENCED TEACHER OF
Piano, Harmony, Musical Form, Delsarte, and Elocution, desires change in location, and a position as teacher in a school. Reference unexceptionable. M. Etude.

A PRACTICAL NORMAL COURSE TO TEACH-
ers and pupils. Classes in Technical Training by Mrs. Annie L. Palmer, at Galveston, Texas, June 17- July 23, 1895.

“Mrs. Palmer has studied the Goldbeck Piano Method for years, and has so completely mastered all its principles and artistic details that she is enabled most successfully to engage in a Normal Course, in which she explains to teachers the complete scheme of teaching and playing, as unfolded in the Goldbeck Method. Many teachers have gone forth after such a course so much benefited by a full understanding of the many difficult features of teaching and playing, that they have felt as if standing on safe ground. Piano teachers in need of advice, and also such well trained teachers not yet acquainted with the Goldbeck Method, should take this course, and they may rest assured that they will increase their stock of musical and technical knowledge many-fold after having mastered the methods so ably explained by Mrs. Palmer.”

Address until May 23, Mrs. A. L. Palmer, Goldbeck College, 3033 Pine Street, St. Louis, Mo. After May 23, Tremont House, Galveston, Texas

If you would be sharp, you’ll flatly refuse
An instrument poor to buy or to use:
Like the hard, harsh voice of an angry scold,
Cheap instruments sound before they are old:
They’re cheap in their make, material and tone,
And if you are sound, you’ll let them alone.
The adage oft told is true, my dear friend,
For, “the best is cheapest in the end.”
Now this is just the gist of the matter,
Spoken by lips that never would flatter:
The “Crown” is well made, both inside and out,
From ivory keys to the pin blocks stout:
The “Crown” will outlast your fingers and feet
And please you with tones alluring and sweet:
You’ll say when you’ve looked from East unto West,
The “Crown” pianos and organs are best.
For in fact, the “Crown ” is like a good wife,
You’ll have no other, you’d take it for life.
