A New Departure in Piano Practice
In Use at Miss Hattie
Miss Hattie Leavell has introduced
a new method of teaching thz piano
in Newberry, and has set up in her
studio on Main street a wonderful
practice instrument known as the
"Tekniklavier" which will be of the
greatest benefit to her students in
their musical work. The instrument
is an improvement on the old style
of dummy keyboards which many
of the world's famous musicians
used to better their touch. The
idea is very old and pain
ists who became renowned for their
execution and brilliancy in playing
in years gone by Were glad to make
use of uch an arrangement. Von
Bulow, Rubinstein, Liszt. Tausig,
and many others of equal or lesser
fame found these keyboards indis
pensable and spent many hours every
day in working out intricate key
board problems upon them. But
the Tekniklavier, while being fash
ioned upon the same principle is rad
ically different from the old dummy
keyboard and has an infinity of im
provements that the old masters never
The instrument in Miss Leavell's
studio is so constituted that the keys
will afford a touch as light as velvet
or will require a weight of twenty
ounces to accomplish the movement,
just as the teacher or operator de
sires. While making no sound what
ever the Tekniklavier keyboard is in
appearance, action or touch, identi
cal with the keyboard of the finest
piano. It is arranged so that the
pressing down of every key gives a
distinct and clear metalic click, and
clicks again when it rises into posi
tion. Thcse clicks are only sounded
properly when the keys are struck
in the correct manner. Aus develop
ing the sense of rhythm, accent and
time, more quickly and accurately
than it can be gained on the ordinary
piano. The instrument is of untold
value in learning the keyboard, ac
quiring strength, suppleness and ve
locity, and for the correct mechanical
execution of the legato and the var
ious kinds of staccato touch.

to tackle so well as a cheap-paint

him to get 13 1-2 gallons Devoe; had
4 1-2 left.
Mr. A H Rebert, same town, has
lots of buildings; paints Devoe; pays
20 cents. more a gallon for it; is glad
to; says it's the cheapest paint there
is. He knows how it covers, he 'don't
half-know how it wears yet.
