On Monday morning at 9 o’clock, the conservatory of music and art, a new enterprise worthy of encouragement and patronage, will open over the Ontario store, this city, where the young ladies who will have charge of it, have nicely furnished and fitted up a studio and instruction apartment for the purpose. The musical department will be under direction of Miss B. L. Bone, a lady of experience and undisputed talent and culture in various specialties of musical art. She comes from Ontario so well recommended that none need hesitate to accept her instruction, which embraces harp and pipe-organ at 75 cents per lesson; piano, reed organ and guitar at 50 cents per lesson; zither, banjo and violin, 60 cents per lesson, and vocal lessons 60 cents. The scope and variety of instruction thus afforded at a minimum price should not only attract residents of the city, but also persons from neighboring places. The art department will be conducted by Miss Mary Griffith, recently from the Ladies’ Seminary at Mount Carroll, Illinois, whose works richly ornament the apartment and afford the best proof of her ability as an artist. She will teach drawing at 20 cents per lesson, and painting at 25 cents per lesson. Her range of handiwork includes crayon and pencil sketches, painting in oil and water colors, and general painting in every variety of form and design. She has the skill and ambition to make it a success, having acquired the art with close application to study and at great expense. Students should enter as early as possible.
