Alias Mattle Jodm Making; Fine Progress
Id Her Vocal Studies.
Word comes of the rapid progress
of Miss Mattie Jones, in Chicago,
where she is pursuing a thorough
course or instruction in vocai music
under the masterly direction of the
well known composer and teacher,
Prof. W. II. Niedlinger. His high es
timate of her natural gifts appears in
his correspondence with ber parents.
Added to her exceptional natural en
dowments. Miss Jones has in ber
favor youth and health and a miod
filled with good thoughts and ran
common sense, .these latter quali
ties of character she will find use
for iu the' public career which
is opening before her. To those who
have had the pleasure of her acquaint
ance during ber girlhood, the reports
of her rapid progress bring no surprise;
to hear her sing during those rears
was to believe that her future was to
be a hrilliant one. in her manner
and . feeling no personal vanity was
apparent; no affectation, nothing
but the natural, unconscious elation
which comes on the wings of song to
those chosen natures which can rech
up for the inspiration. In ber pres
ence there is an innnite charm of
chasteness and a modest confidence
which at once puts her audience at
ease and half wins success before the
Committees In Charge.
