"Dear Mr. Tinsley:
  "I take great pleasure in commending your very useful and succinctly written book on 'Tone-Placing and Voice-Development.' Your own appreciation of the psychology of singing and the fundamental principles of the art you have cleverly reduced to a simple system. Cordially yours,
"Father WILLIAM J. FINN, C.S.P., Director Paulist Choristers of Chicago."
  From "Musical Courier," N.Y.: "A very practical little book is 'Tone-Placing and Voice-Development,' by Pedro T. Tinsley. It contains some very excellent material and vocal exercises, and should be in the hands of all vocal students."
  From "Music News," Chicago, Ill.: "Accordingly his 'Practical Method of Singing' is a most concise and practical little manual, containing many valuable vocal exercises. It cannot fail to be helpful to all ambitious vocal students."
  "Since I practised your exercises of 'Tone-Placing and Voice-Development' my voice is more resonant than it has been for years. It seems to me that I am getting a new voice." Prof. John T. Layton, Director Coleridge-Taylor Musical Society, 1722 10th St., N. W., Washington, D.C.

is the title of one of our five new Negro pictures, just off the press. It portrays a beautiful young colored mother fondling her sturdy babe. Painted in 12 colors it is rich and elegant and every home should have a copy hanging on its wall. Write us for description of our new pictures and terms to agents. For 15 cents in stamps we will send a sample copy of "A JOYFUL WELCOME INTO HEAVEN", the picture which our agents have sold 25,000 copies of during the past few months.
