ran not be too warmly commended. It is .a
thoroughly organized, efficiently officered and
admirably adapted practical Business College,

the most casual visitor to its well appointed

Low Priced and Good—The Emerson'
To meet the wane; of the great, number of
persons who desire to possess a piano, but do
not feel able to go t 9 the expense of the costli
est make, and yet - would have only a good
substaitlal one, we hive made a most careful
examination of, all the lowest priced pianos
made in the United States. The result of this
examination is that we have found those
made by W. P. Emerson, to be the best pianos
for the price, and the cheapest good pianos
that use made. they are most substantially
built, on the roundest acoustic rorinclpals;_the
wood is the best quality pronerly seAsonesis
the tone rich and pewertxl.and the to uc h easy
and elastic; each one is provided with the the
full iron frame, and overstrung bass. They
stand well In tune and wear well in every pars
ticular; this we know from actual experience.
Thefillierence in price between the Emerson
Plano, and the more - costly makes, is caused
by the most rigid economy in the manufac
ture consistent o with excellence, and
by a saving f labor on those parts,
which neither effect the tone or durability.
W‘Tdo not pretend that the "Emerson ^ is the
lowest priced pio made; many can be bought
at a l g eas price. an Such pianos.we do not keep,
havin found by our own and others experi
ence that Deltic ,o poorly' made they soon glee
way,lose their tone, become harsh and dis
burdant are , and a
cons give no sati,faet ion to the oaner,

contracts for a regular weeklyptionly for a

A MaHelot. 'tumor.
We published, several days ego, n street
rumor to the effect that a msg. ease was
soon to be brought to light, in which (a well
known professor was involved. We have
taken the pains to investigate p
thoroughly, and have now the pof
statlng that the rumor did great injustice to
the gentleman concerned. IL was stated by
his personal enemies, and was false from inn
ginning to end. We make the contradiction
cheerfully, believing that great injustice was
done by our,ltem, giving publielts to a rumor
which had no foundation whatever.
