THE VICTOR IN THE HOME. Most of the great artists who have taken part in this Woman’s issue of The Etude may be heard in your own home as many times as you choose by means of the Victor Talking Machine. The educational importance of hearing such artists as Sembrich, Homer, Schumann-Heink, Eames, Melba, Tetrazzini, da Gogorza, Maud Powell, Mischa Elman, Geraldine Farrar, Caruso and countless others is of indisputable significance. Schumann-Heink calls the Victor records “mirrors of the voice and the best vocal instructors of the day.” Several attractive little booklets describing the Victor records and illustrated with miniature portraits of the great singers and performers may be secured from the Victor Talking Machine Company, Camden N. J. The vocal teacher who does not possess a Victor is handicapped in the race for success. The music lover who cannot hear the great singers at first hand need not regret lost opportunities. The Victor goes anywhere and the records do not suffer from indisposition, whims or imperfect health.
