President Harper of the University of Chicago strongly endorses my claim that the correspondence method of instruction secures the best results. It is the only correct plan for teaching music. I can prove this easily to Beginners, Teachers, or Professional Musicians. Will you drop me a Postal for my Book? It's a small thing to ask for; a big thing to get. Do it now! MARCUS I. QUINN, Mus.

Not only the rulers man-

ments, but in England and
Russia, for instance, nearly
every member of the Royal Her Royal High-
family and a very large per-
centage of the nobility have
purchased one, and some are
owners of both. Emperor
William purchased an Aeo-
lian Orchestrelle for H. I.
M. yacht Hohenzollern after
seeing one on the Ameri-
can yacht Varuna, which he
visited off the coast of Nor-
way.

A recent query from the
Sultan of Turkey to our
representative in Paris, and
the subsequent visit of the
latter to Constantinople, re-
vealed the fact that there
were already three Aeolians
and a Pianola in the Royal

of Westminster

His Majesty Abdul Hamid, Sultan of Turkey

Palace, and

that another Pian-
ola was desired. The
first Pianola was pre-
sented to the Sultan by the
Khedive of Egypt, an
enthusiastic patron. The
Cross of Osmanie and
the Medal of Fine Arts

were given to our repre-
sentative, and the royal
appointment of Purveyors
to the Court given to The
Aeolian Company.

The Pianola has also become well known among the rulers of Asia.

During the past summer word has been received from our representative in Japan, in his tour around the world, that the Khan of BaluchisHis Grace the Duke tan, the Ameer of Bokhara, and the King of Siam, have Pianolas in their palaces and that the instruments are found in many of the consulates of Asia. The Shah of Persia has also recently become the owner of a Pianola.

It is illustrative of the interest taken in the instruments by these prominent patrons that the Shah of Persia ordered on May sixth, through the Persian Minister at Washington, three Persian selections to be especially cut for his Pianola, and Emperor William has one of his own compositions arranged for the Aeolian Orchestrelle

Equally interesting is the fact that another of the above pianists played in New York last winter in concert a very difficult number which he had learned from playing it with the Pianola. He had never seen the score. Still another pianist selects the compositions for his repertory by first playing them with the Pianola.

To ruler and artisan, musician and layman, the Pianola signifies the "open sesame," the "royal road" to the beautiful world of music.

It has brought into the lives of thousands upon thousands of human beings. a pleasure hitherto unknown, but welcome beyond words.

Giving voice to the piano, making it respond to the touch of even the little child, the Pianola has transformed that instrument into a veritable storehouse of delight, open to all the world alike. To the amateur pianist, practicing laboriously
