FIVE CLEVER YOUNG WOMEN APPEAR AT THE EMPRESS THIS
Immensely clever and regular "poster" beauties are the five
young maidens composing the "Violin Beauties" troupe at the Em
press Theater this week. They sing to the dances and dance to their
songs and play the merry violin to both. They sing a number of
the season's song hits.
One of their highly-entertaining novelties is the "National" num
ber In which the entire company takes part. Garbed in the native
costume of the land she represents, each girl sings the national
song of that country and dances the national dance while playing her
violin. Ireland, Spain, Germany, Scotland and Turkey are represented.

material is valued at nearly $100.

that best express our feelings as we say
good-bye to the multitude of friends made
for this paper by its great musical cam
paign in distributing that wonderful song
collection "Heart Songs."
The days during which our office has
been thronged by the great army
of music-lovers who have possessed
themselves of this work, have been
pleasant to us, and, we are sure,
have been both profitable and
pleasant to our readers.
Many homes have been enriched by this beautiful volume
an ornament to any library and a treasure whose value
enhances year by year. It has been praised by great
musical critics, and well merits the title bestowed upon
it by one of them, "The Master Work of Song Music."
Our offer has been made in good faith and our labor
richly rewarded. The influence exerted by our unique
educational project will be felt for years.
So, to our thousands of "Heart Songs" friends,
made in the past few weeks, we say, "Good bye!"
