Twentyfive Thousand PupilsLargest Conservatory of Music in America
Who Are We
The International Conservatory of Music was organ
ized at Dallas, Texas, with a capital stock of $100,000,
fully paid up. If you wish to find out more about just
how we stand with the financial world, we will refer you to
any bank or banker or to the commercial agencies of Dunn
At the head of this company are some of the best
known and most prominent men of the Southwest. Men
whose business integrity cannot lie questioned.
What we Teach
The International Conservatory of Music teaches the
following instruments, and none other :
The piano and organ. This course consists of forty
eight lessons, and in addition to all the instruction papers,
special helps and the wonderful Tone Ilevealer, we give
Free One Hundred Copies of Graded Sheet
The violin course consists of forty-eight weeks' work.
Then we furnish each pupil enrolling in this course a com
plete Violin outfit. This instrument is made in Germany
and imported into this country especially for our students.
If you were to purchase the outfit at a music store in
the ordinary way it would cost you not less than $25.00.
The violin is shipped you as soon as your enrollment is
received. In addition, we give with this course 40 copies
of graded sheet music.
The guitar is pronounced by many to be the sweetest
of the stringed instruments. This course consists of 48
weeks' work, and in addition to all the instruction papers,
lessons, etc., we give you absolutely free one of our special
I. C. M. Guitars. Worth at least $20. Forty copies of
graded sheet music is also given with this course,
The mandolin course consists of 48 weeks' work, and
in every way is just as complete as any of the other
courses. Included in this course is a handsome mandolin,
one that would cost you at least $20. dded to the in
structions are forty choice selections.
Harmonic Tone Revealer
The teaching of the piano and organ by mail is made
possible only by the aid of the wonderful Harmonic Tone
Revealer. This has been examined by some of the best
known musicians in this country, and they all pronounce
it the cleverest device ever conceived in music. By its aid
the beginner can play pieces within twenty minutes time.
It teaches the notes and chords. In fact there is nothing in
the rudiments of music it will not show.
It is placed upon the keys of the piano or organ and
can be adjusted to any key in whicli the music may be
written. Do not confound this with some charts you have
seen, as this is the only complete in vention of the kind ever
placed before the people. When W. S. B. Matthews of Chi
cago, probably the best musician in the United States,
was shown this Ilevealer, he said : "After examining Prof.
McMaster's device, known as the Harmonic Tone Ilevealer,
and the lessons that go with it, I pronounce them simple
and complete. If I could have had such aids when I was
young, I would have learned things that I did not know
until years afterwards."
" One of these Ilevealers is given with each scholarship
on the Piano or Organ.
Hood River Representative
Mr. Jno. T. Hoye, our special class organizer, is now
in the Hood River country. He will, no doubt, call upon
you in the near future. We ask that you give him an
opportunity to explain our methods of teaching. It will
cost you nothing to investigate, and if you are interested
in giving your children a musical training, it is a duty you
owe to them. If you want to be sure that Mr. Hoye calls,
drop us a card at Portland. If you will do this we will
send you a popular piece of sheet music FREE.
Results Absolutely Guaranteed
Every pupil enrolling in the Conservatory is give a Guarantee that upon the completion of the course he will not only be able to read
and play by note, but will understand the fundamental principles of music. If through any fault of the Conservatory we fail to bring
about these results, your money will be refunded in full. Ask the Bank whether we are a responsible Company or not.

Cougar Kept Coyotes at Hay.
Jack Summers, of Prtneville, re
lutes to the Madias Pioneer a story of
a eougar hunt iu which ho paiticipat
ed at Maui j", soutn of PrinoviJle, a
few weeks ago. Ilia party was in
formed that a cougar was eating on
the carcuHB of a cow, so they armod
themselves and cautiously approached
the place. When they reached a poiut
where they could see their quarry
they weie afforded a rate and entt i
taiuing sight. A large cougai was eat
ing on the carcass and raugod around,
sitting on their haunchex, were six
coyotes. Tbe ccyotes would occasion
ally send op a lonely, hungry howl of
disappointment, but the cougar kept
they away with jealous care. The
coyotes bad the distance nicely mutts
uied between themselves and the
cougar, and whan the big cat would
whirl around as if to charge them
they would back accoidingly, tint
would resume their old position and
howl again as soon as the cougar
turned his attention to eating. Attar
watching this stiange drama f r a
time tbe hunters opened fire and
broke up the show. Tbey bagged the
cougar and two of the coyotes.
