A Grand Musicale.
At the Armory Opera House, Nov. 17.
By the Pupils of Prof. E. O. D^vis.
Persons desiring to bear a musical treat
should not fail to attend, as tho Professor's
class includes the ber-t talent in the city.
Persons musically inclined should attend,
to better their education in that line. The
program as presented to us is as fine as we
have ever seen. Each part has been care
fully selected with a view to please all
classes of musicians. There are three se
lections on the programme worth mention
ing, and'they have never before been per
formed in Butler, viz a concerto for two
Pianos, by Miss Bird Reiber and Prof.
Davis; also a concerto by Mr. Joe. Traxler
and Prof. Davis
There will also be a selection fur two
pianos, an<l four performers. Everybody
should attend >o encourage such under
takings, and the pupils should be grateful
to their instructor for giving thorn the op
portunity to perform before the public,
thereby securing a very difficult part ot
their education in music, and which is de
nied nine-tenths of the pupils of the large
cities and conservatories. It is essential
to every musician.

Frank Beard, the celebrated humorous
caricaturist will open the High School
Lectare Course next Tuesday eveniDg in
the Armory Opera House.
His lectures are treats, interesting and
amusing, funny and unique
Xo better description of Mr. Beard's
work can be given than the following ex
"Mr. Frank Beard, whose cartoons in
the Judge and Puck, and illu.-trations for
Harpers, Scribner's, Century, and many
other prominent periodicals, have made
his name and geniQS familiar to thousands.
Since he made his debnt as a lecturer, he
has been in constant demand, though
'lecture' scarcely conveys tbe right im
pression of the entertainment. To form
an accurate idea, it should bo seen and
heard. It is a pleasant, sparkling, genial
discourse about the mysteries of picture j
making, just such as a real good uatured
below like Frank Beard, might give to an
intimate friend who desires to know the
secret of 'how he made those funny things
called Comics'. To illustrate his talk, ha
uiaKes a lot of pictures in the presence ol
the audience: and so rapidly do these ap
pear as familiar objects, or change with a
lew strokes to entirely different forms,that
the looker-on is always pleaseutly excited
to see 'what that's going to be.' Mr
Beard displays incidentaly many of tbe
i-ec-re.s ol art. which cannot fail lo be- of
great advanta c ' to any of his spectators
•> uo arc desirous ol wielding the pencil.
The discourse is fairly overflowing with
original humor, but it is needless to say to
any familiar with the lecturer, there is
nothing rnde or indelicate. It is places
like Cnautanqua, and the most cultured
audiences, that have received the enter
laiument with the most appreciation.
Should any of our readers have the oppor
tunity of attending, we are confident the}
will pass a pleasant evening, and enjoy
something out of the common run."
To the friends of the Public Schools:
Tbe second aiiDual High School Lectare
Course will bi gin November 15 with one ol

followed by Kev. Sam Jones in one ol his

lion. Henry Watterson, editor of Louis
ville Courier-Journal, February 22. We
confidently believe that this is the best
course of entertainments ever offered to
this community. The talent will cost
much more than the entire course last
year. As the principal literary institution
of the town we believe it is the duty of
the High School to mantain such a
course of lectures. We need books and
apparatus and we have no other way to se
cure money to purchase them. We de
»ire to have our boys and girls interested
in the best class of entertainments, as they
will lie because these are given under their
A course ticket for reserved seats for the
five entertainments is only $2 By single
admission it will cost $3 or $3 75 for the

you to purchase course tickets and it is a
great advantage to tbe management of the
course. We must enter into contracts iu
advance with our lecturers, and we rnu. t
be sure of enough money to pay them.
We ask your most liberal patronage We
ask you to come not riuiply because you
will be well entertained, but because you
will thus manitest your interest in aud
very greatly eucourage the school. Tick

A Modern Marvel.
When The Pittsburg Times took
possession of its splendid building
last April its publishers promised
that The Times would grow in ex
cellence in tbe same proportion as its
quarters have been enlarged. The
Times bud already won such a proud
position among tbe newspapers of
the country that there was general
curiosity to know how the promise
would be redeemed. That curiosity
has been most pleasantly gratified.
Tbe Times Las been so enlarged, and
so many new features have lieen add
ed, that it is everywhere cited as a
marvel of modern journalism. The
chief woridt-r is that a newpsaper so
complete in every respect can be sold
for one cent a day, or s.j 00 per year,
little more than tbe cost of a first
ciass weekly paper. If any of our
readers uro Lot latniliar by personal
inspection with the merits of The
Times, we advise them to send for a
sample copy, which will be mailed
free to any address. If there is no
agent for The Times in your locality
it will pay you to write to Tbe
Times for terms to agents.
