Last Night’s Musicale.

   A large and select company of Grand Haven people, with a number from abroad filled to overflowing the spacious lower rooms of Akeley Institute last night at the musicale given by the students and graduating class assisted by Mrs. F. H. Boyce and Mrs. Ora Pearson. The rendition of the different numbers was without exception excellent, and beautifully illustrated the culmination of the Akeley Institute’s training in musical and vocal culture. Every performance charmed the large company of invited guests, who showed their appreciation by hearty applause and congratulations.


Art Reception.

   The reception at the studio at Akeley Institute, Monday afternoon and evening, was a most enjoyable and successful affair. The work gave evidence of great talent, painstaking effort on the part of the pupils and well rewarded labor on the part of Miss Lucas, the teacher. The beautiful medal for improvement in art was on exhibition during the evening. It is a very pretty piece of China painting, consisting of an oval medallion with a cherub engaged in painting the studio motto across the face bearing the inscription "Akeley 91." It was executed by Miss Lucas and will give the fortunate recipient much genuine aesthetic pleasure aside from its value as a reward for merit.
