"Simplifier" Opens Door to All Aspirants
Piano" Lessons In The Soeday Oregonian
Beginning Next Sunday
This simple way of learning music has been approved by many '
of the great authorities. -
By this new method anyone can learn how to play the piano or
organ by these object lessons. A fundamental knowledge of the
theory of music is easily gained. All annoyances are removed by
this new system. This series will treat each key and its relative
minor keys in one lesson, making twelve lessons in the course
comprising all the different scales.
The World-Renowned Pianist, Says:
"I consider your Music Simplifier a very useful improvement
in piano teaching. "
Theorist of Music, Yale University, New Haven, Conn., Says:
"Mr. "W. Scott Grove's Music Simplifier seems to me an excel
lent adjunct to first lessons in the rudiments of music."
Director of Peabody Conservatory, Baltimore, McL, Says:
"Mr. W. Scott Grove's Music Simplifier seems to be a very
clever device and one which should save both teacher and pupil
considerable effort." ,
The Weil-Known Composer, of Cleveland, O., Says:
"A careful examination of W. Scott Grove's Simplifier has con
vinced me that it is an important adjunct to teaching and study
ing both the piano and the rudiments of theory. Its simplicity
and directness render its teachings easily understood, and I recom
mend it without reservation to the profession and also the musical
A series of charts with plain directions which simplify the art
to a remarkable degree. The plan is so simple that by simply
laying the lessons on the keys of a piano or organ you begin to
play. After the twelfth lesson your further advancement depends
on your individual efforts, for the foundation has been laid; you
have been introduced to the rudiments of the great art and have
acquired a love for it which insures further progress.
Charts, Which Make It Easy
The charts which accompany the lessons tell it all. They sim
plify the study of music to a remarkable degree. They show a
complete series of chords in all keys, both major and minor. Direc
tions show how to fold half page of The Sunday Oregonian con
taining the lesson so that the white spaces in the chart will be
over the white keys and the black spaces over the black keys.
A Royal Road to Harmony
The first of these lessons will appear in' The Oregonian next
Sunday, October 11.
Grove's music charts were originated by W. Scott Grove, and
are already known anefprotected by copyright in the United States
and Canada, Great Britain, the countries of Continental Europe
and their colonies. They offer the royal road to harmony at last.
Organist, Cathedral of Immaculate Conception, Albany, N. Y., says :
"I approve very much the Simplifier -invented by Mr. "W. Scott
Grove. It will be a great help to young pupils and also advanced
scholars in their study of music."
Of the Conservatory of Music, Boston, Mass., Says:
"I have carefully examined1 Grove's Music Simplifier, by Mr.
W. Scott Grove, and heartily recommend it to the teaching pro
fession and also to pupils."
Professor of Music, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pa., Says:
'I heartily recommend the Music Simplifier devised by Mr. W.
Scott Grove as an aid to both teacher and pupil."
Of Buffalo, Says :
"It gives me great pleasure to indorse most heartily Grove's
Music Simplifier as a sure and speedy method of teaching the
major and minor scales with their signature and fundamental triad.
Its use will unquestionably save much unnecessary worry, both
to teachers as well as to students."
The Eminent Composer, Director and Teacher, of Chicago, 111., Says :
"This is to certify that I have examined Grove's Music Sim
plifier and find it will help any person desirous of obtaining
musical honors who carefulyl studies its contents."
Dean, College of Music, Cincinnati, O., Says:
"The Music Simplifier of Mr. V. Scott Grove on examination
should prove a valuable and quick way of familiarizing the student
with the triads and their practical application to the keyboard."

Policeman, Looking at Acting Mayor Daly, Wonders How ATbee Can Have
Changed So Much Jimmy McCool Rescues Family Pup.
WHEN Mayor Albee is out of the
city. Commissioner Daly auto
matically becomes Mayor. While
the Mayor was away recently and. Mr.
Daly was occupying the office, a fire
broke out and Mr. Daly, as ex-offlcio
head of the Fire and Police Depart
ment, hustled down to watch the flre-
ighting operations. By the time he
got there, fire lines had been estab
lished and policemen were holding the
rowds back behind ropes. Mr. Daly
pushed up to the front and started
through the ropes.
"Stand back there; you fellers,"
snarled a policeman, shoving Mr. Daly
back behind the ropes with the rest
of them.
Mr. Daly pushed forward again.
"You'll have to get back there." said
the policeman, poking Mr. Daly with
the business end of a night stick.
Can't the Mayor of tne city get
through here?" asked Daly.
What's that go to do with you.
snapped the policeman.
I'm- the Mayor," said Daly, with a
"Go tell that to Sweeney," snarled
the policeman, crowding Mr. Daly back
deeper into the crowd.
At this moment Captain Moore hap
pened along and Mr. Daly hailed him
from the crowd.
'Hello, Mayor." said Moore, ex tend -
ng a hand and drawing Mr. Ualy Irom
behind the ropes. Mr. Daly and the
captain' started off toward the fire
"Can you beat that," remarked the
policeman. "Albee didn't look like that
the last time I saw him.
Mrs. Robert H. Tate, National vice-president of the Congress
of Mothers and Parent-Teacher Associations and president of the
Oregon Child Welfare Commission, left Portland on Wednesday for
a visit through Montana, North and South Dakota and other points
as far as St- Paul to make speeches and organize parent-teacher
circles. In cities where there are circles already organized, plans
are being made to entertain Mrs. Tate and she will be called upon
to speak at several large gatherings.
At the State Fair on Monday Mrs. Tate spoke on how best to
safeguard the boys and girls of the state. In all her addresses, Mrs.
Tate will urge women to attend the National Congress of Mothers'
Convention, which will be held in Portland next Spring.

JIM M'COOL, . secretary to Commis

the brunt of complaints from Irate
"taxpayers" whose dogs have been
taken by the dogcatcher. McCool up
to a few days ago could not see the
reasonableness of the numerous com
plaints. Last week, however, the dog
catcher got the McCool family pup and
McCool found himself listening to his
own tirade against the dogcatcher.
He had to pay up the same as have
the rest of the dog owners whose pets
have befn taken up. He is a pretty

puzzle was solved when it became
known that Mr. Hummer wore the
