TEMPLE OF MUSIC
Mme. Nordica Proposes to Es
tablish an American Bair
euth on the Hudson.
BUILDINGS TO COVER ACRES
Noted Singer Has Bought $100,000
Site for Rival of the Famous
Mme. Lillian Xordica will establish
On the Hudson near -New York a Uui
reuth In America, sajs the New York
Ilerald. With a part of her ;re.i?
fortune the noted singer will erect the
Lillian Xordica Festival House, which
Will be to the Flitted Stales what the I
famous operatic institution founded by
Rlchatl Wagner and now maintained
by his widow Is to Europe. The site
for the great institution was purchased
recently by Mme. N.u-.llci for Slir.i.ooo.
The opera house will be ready for its
formal dedication one jear from next
But the house alone .where the Wag
nerian operas are to be given, both la
German and English, is but a p.ii't of
the great musical and artistically phil
anthropic scheme planned by Mine.
Xordica. On the tweuty ::.:e site she
has acquired the prima donna is to
found the American institute of Music,
where, taught by th foremost teach
cr in the world. American yuini wom
en and men who aspire to win operatic
tttfnors will be taught e ei y branch of
music and given a mush-al education
as complete and excellent and with
vastly less exp.nse than they can ii-jw
hope to pet abroad. An open air the
ater will be auotln-r feature of the in
stitution. Mme. Nordica oke in part of her
plans as follows:
"Call my object philanthropic or
what you may, but the idea of found
In? here in my own country an Amer
ican Hulreuti) has been my life's am
bltiou. Now I am able financially to
start this great project, which I know
will be an institution which after I
am dead will continue to grow and en
lighten the people of this country, who
are now awakening to the benefits to
be derived from a musical education
such as was not dreamed of ten years
"Here la America young women and
men save their earnings and ruh to
Europe to take up musical study.
Thousands go every year. Some suc
ceed, others fail. This country can pro
ride everything necessary to the stu
dent's education and Is gaining a mu
sical standard that Europe has always
had. In this plan of mine I am as
sured of the hearty co-operation of
men nud women of wealth. The latter
ye'ars of my life I hope to five entirely
to seeing this great institution grow
unfit if an "hnVe no r'.vr.I. . -'-"'

of the .American. Institute of Music
alone will cover four acres. .They will
be erected lose to the Lillian Nordica
Festival House. In conno tin with
the Institute there will be dormitories
and houvc:.- where the students i:t lit
tle expense will be able to live -while
pursuing their musleal studies.
"Europe will contribute teachers, r.nd
they will be paid for their services
more than they e::ri hope to cam
abroad. The scope and outline of my
project it Is impossible to give in detail
on i;uch .'-hort notice.
"The Lillian Nordica Festival House
will be in eviiy way an exact repro
duction of the theater erected by
Richard Wagner. The Wagner operas
will be given there in the summer,
with the greatest artists In the world.
The first year nothing but Wagner
operas will be given, and after that
it is proposed lo present in the open
air theater or stadium Shakespearean
cycles In which all of the greatest
interpreters of Shakespearean plays
will be able to appear.
"During the summer season there
will be reading-t. lecture and regular
courses in music and the classic drama.
.Sundays in the opera house will be de
voted to oratorios and symphonies, and
the Saturday performances will be for
the great masses of the people, who
are beginning to take a deeper iutcrest
in music than ever before.
"The management of the institution
will bo in the hands of a board of wo
men directors and an advisory board
of men, all of whom will be selected
within six months. The seating ca
ipacity of the Lillian Nordica Festival
House will be 2.000. There will lc
twenty-five boxes, all of v. hi. h will be
sold by subscription. The theater may
not be self supporting during its first
summer, but that will not make the
Bllgbtest'differonce. In years to come
it will be, for those who are t become
Interested with me In the project are to
endow it, aside from the financial aid I
shall give to it.
"The grounds surrounding the differ
ent buildings will be laid out in the
form of a huge oval. The site of the In
stitution is easily accessible from New
York cily by loth rail and water.

Successful Result of Man's Novel
Scheme to Secure Employment.
II. W. Leonard has found n job!
This is not a matter of serious Im
port to the great, hustling public,
wrapped in its own seltisii Interests,
I id it is of much concern to the crowd
that frequents Park row. New York,
and particularly to a certain unknown,
middle aged couple, says the New
For several days i tall, poorly dress
ed but well set-up m:.l& stood in Park
row where every man and woman par
ticipating in the two daily ISrooklyn
bridge rushes could see him. Sus
pended by a cord about his neck was
a white placard two feet square bear
ing the following in crudely executed
I WANT W'l iltK.
Scores of sympathetic pedestrians
stopped and talked with him. To each
questioner he would say:
"My name is II. W. Leonard. I came
from Cincinnati live mouths ago. 1
am not educated, but I am honest, and
II. W. I.EO.NAU1).
I can woik. I am not a mechanic. 1
have no trade, but I have my health
and must support myself. I lost a
place because my hands were injured
in a gas explosion. I am well again
mid want a job. I propose to stand
here until the right man comes along.""
He waited two days. As usual, he
stood by the bridge the other morning
displaying his placarded appeal. From
the jostling thousands there emerged .1
middle aged man and woman. They
stopped in front of Leonard. He
"Have you got a job down your way
for an ablebotlied man?" he asked.
The unknown nn asked a question
which parted Leonard's lips into n dou
ble dental grin.
"Are you sure you want me? Thank
t.odl I knew It would come!" he was
heard to say.
The reply of the couple was lost in
the clatter of the .street. In an instant
Leonard had removed the placard from
1:1s neck, folded it under his arm ami
trudged down Nassau street after thj
man and woman.

An American who is the head of one

proof of our success, and nothing succeeds like success. Success is the
true measure of merit.
We were successful in every sense of the word. In fact, our success
has been so phenomenal that some say we are naturally lucky. Yes,
lucky in having the knowledge and skill to do all we claimed, but it took
years of hard work and study to get that knowledge and skill. It is easy
for us now; we could not make a botch of ycur case if we wanted to. We
know the best and surest way and have had so much experience that the
successful way is the most natural way to us. Our 13 years of success

others it gives wonderfully quick -"lief, it is always easy to take and
