Victor






r



Both are Caruso

The Victor Record of Caruso's voice
is just as truly Caruso as Caruso him-
self.

It actually is Caruso his own mag-
nificent voice, with all the wonderful
power and beauty of tone that make
him the greatest of all tenors.

Every one of the hundred and twenty
Caruso records brings you not only his
art, but his personality. When you hear
Caruso on the Victrola in your own home,
you hear him just as truly as if you were
listening to him in the Metropolitan
Opera House.

The proof i s in the hearing . Any Victor
dealer in any city in the world will
gladly play for you Victor Records
by Caruso or any other of the world's
greatest artists. There are Victors
and Victrolas in great variety of styles
from $10 to $200.

Always use Victor Machines with Victor Records and Victor Needles
the combination. There is no other way to get the uaequaled Victor tone.

Carnegie. Cleveland.

AN EXTRAORDINARY OFFER

Choice Building Lots at $79.00 Each

$1.00 Down and $1.00 per Month

Read above what Andrew Carnegie and Grover Cleveland say
of real estate as an investment. Then, if you want to make
your money work for you, write to us today.

The wonderful Increase of values on Long Island is one of the marvels of latter-day history.
In scores of towns property has Increased not only 50 per cent, 100 per cent, but In many cases
1000 per cent. Lots that sometime since could have been bought for a song are to-day worth
thousands of dollars. A few years ago, some school teachers bought lots in Hempstead, Long
Island, at fifteen dollars each; to-day the lots sell for six hundred dollars apiece. Eighteen
months ago, a physician bought two lots at Long Beach, at ninety dollars each; last month he
sold them for a thousand dollars apiece. These are only two out of thousands of similar In-
stances.

Out of the sweltering, crowded city of New York thronging thousands are pouring into the
suburban towns and cities of Long Island. Hundreds of millions of dollars are being expended
by the Pennsylvania Railroad alone, for its development. Tremendous engineering works
tunnels, bridges, railroads, electric roads are under way, involving more money than the Pan-
ama Canal. What the bridge did for Brooklyn, what the subway did for the Bronx multiply-
ing values enormously almost overnight these gigantic transportation schemes of the Pennsyl-
vania Railroad will do for Long Island. It will furnish the fastest, finest and the most com-
fortable rapid transit In the world.

We are offering for sale at remarkably low figures choice building lots located at Oak Ridge
Park, near East Moriches, the world-famous summer resort, on the Pennsylvania Long Island
Railroad. Every foot of ground is high, dry, fertile and healthful. The property is only seven
minutes' walk to the station and twelve minutes' walk to the Great South Bay, with its glorious
facilities for still water and ocean fishing, swimming and boating. For a summer home or bun-
galow, for small fruit or poultry raising, or to hold as an investment, these lots at our prices
cannot be surpassed. The title to the property is insured by the United States Title and
Guarantee Company of New York City.

Our present price, subject to increase at any moment is $79.00 for a city lot, 20x100
feet. This can be paid at the rate of $1.00 down and $1.00 per month until paid for. We *
sell as little as one lot, but we would advise that y ou buy three, five or as many more up -\ "M-
to ten as you feel that you can afford. To keep the property from being snatched up .' Jan -
by real estate dealers, we will not sell more than ten lots to any one customer. ^**L o n

BUY NOW. Begin TO-DAY to provide for your future and that of your ^f _ !if l o < L nd
family. Get into the land-owning class and break away from the tyranny of O O nore

landlords. Values are increasing by leaps and bounds. If you buy five lots x " SS'A? T'

now, you ought before long to sell any one of them at what you paid to- ^ ... ** Are.,
day for the five. DO NOT WAIT until the gigantic improvements on ,y *JJ .orlc:
Long Island now in progress are completed; until prices climb nor- cr ,Ji IJ HH
mously; until the lot that you can buy to-day at $79.00 Is selling at ^O >

MOONLIGHT: TAHITI

Isle of turquoise splendor, bathed in light

Of phosphorescent silver seas; the moon

Hung low athwart the skies bespeaks a night

Of soft and silent languor. And the croon

Of distant reef melts faint to meet the low

And dim-heard sounds of tropic midnight. Strands

Of snow-white coral sparkle bright, and glow

Beneath the far-flung fairy stars of lands

At farthest sunset. Sweetly steals the scent

Of new tiere-flowers ; shadows faintly loom

And vanish silently. And the night, far spent,

A vision, seems to sound the final doom

Of all' things earthly. Moon of tranquil rest

And land of solace Island of the Blest!
