THIRD DEGREE NEARLY KILLS SOCIETY HEAD There is nothing: that will make a Winter Holiday so pleasant or more enjoyable than the sweet strains of a noted singer, a world-renowned orchestra, or the full, round volume tones of a Sousa's band. You can have them all if you own a Victrola. You can have more than thisCaruso will come at your bidding; Harry Lauder in his Inimitable way will tell. you stories of his regiment and sing you the folk-lore dittes of a great race. Schumann-IIelnk will swell your parlor with her God-hewn voice, and cither the brilliant Wedding March from Lohengrin, or the melancholy dirge of the Lost Chord will echo through your halls. The Victrola is the greatest entertainer in the world. It combines all the rare art of the great artists and reproduces whole and true the wonderful gifts that have made them famous. To be without a Victrola at any time is a misfortune. To be without one on a Winter Holiday is a calamity.
