talking and singing, even by persons accustomed to it. It is
as soft and sweet as the voice of a women; as full, loud, clear
and strong as that of a man.
For the purpose of HOME AMUSEMENT, the Victor
is a most desirable machine in every way. It's simple con
struction and perfect mechanism make it easy for any person to
operate without the slightest mechanical knowledge.
The price of the Machine is very reasonable.

up an apparent packet-book, by tryiag

White House for public buildings. The
pocket-book is nailed down to soma ex

himes on those squares, who pretend
they do not want to sell ; besides it n
an empty pocket-book. The Senate
occupied almost all day yesterday in
diecussing this question us to where to

banks wanted to erect a building for the
departments of State 'and Justice on the
side of Lafayette Square opposite the
White House; Mr. Spooner and Mr.
Gorman insisted that the needs of the
Senate and Supreme Court should be
first attended to by buildings on Capitol

ground that the location had been a
swamp and was now overflowed in
evary season of flood. The idea of put
ting public buildings tliere, he said, was
monstrous, and Mr. Foraker agreed that
such a menace ought tD rule the loca

The fact i1, confidentally, that the
p'an to set public buildings south of
Pennsylvania Avenna is simply a con
spiracy on the part of the local news

American ves:ela the exclusive rigtit to
