ETHU ailGUS, SATURDAY. MAY 30. 1908.
Drowns in Cistern. Despondent be
cause of ill health for the past three
or four monthn, Mrs. Mary D. Peter
sen, wife of Peter Petersen, the fore
man at the Mueller Lumber company's
mill for a number of years, committed-
suicide by drowning herself in the
cistern in the yard next to her home
yesterday morning.. , The home is at
203 South Lincoln avenue. When Mr.
Petersen arose about 5 o'clock he
missed his - wife - and immediately
commenced a search, expecting to find
that she had gone to the neighbors or
had left home on some errand. But
not being able to find her on the
streets of the neighborhood, and after
waiting for several minutes, he in
quired of the neighbors and later in
formed the police and asked them to
make a search for her. The neigh
bors assisted in making the search,
and about 6 o'clock Mrs. M. Barofsky,
308 South Lincoln avenue, residing
next door, went into the back yard
and . saw the cover of the cistern
lifted from its place. She immediate
ly informed Mr. Petersen and he se
cured a long pole and commenced
probing around the bottom of the cis
tern which is full of water due to so
many heavy rains this season. After
feeling the bottom of the cister with
the pole Mr. Petersen finally struck
something which he thought might be
the body. Grappling hooks were ob
tained, and about 8 o'clock the body
was brought to the surface. Under
taker Hartwig was summoned and
the remains were prepared for burial.
Mrs. Petersen was the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. John Nebel, and was 50
years of age. She was born in Kap
and was married to Peter Petersen
iu Germany in 1879. The family
came .to America in 1S82. Her
father, John; Nebel, resides in Rock

You can sit down at ease In your
own home and hear a grand opera
right through, from the opening scene
to the finale orchestra, chorus, con
certed numbers and arias by the great
stars, all complete exactly as if you
were sitting in a box in the "diamond
horseshoe" at the Metropolitan or Man
hattan opera house in New York.
As you listen to one of these home
opera performances, the voices and the
orchestra and the whole musical effect
are so true to life that with the mind's
eye you seem to see the veritable
scene the light and color and glitter
and everything that gives grand opera
by great singers its full dramatic ef
fect With such artists as Caruso or Melba
or Tetrazzini in the cast, the imagina
tion at a flash paints in the scenery
and the action of the singers.
Say it is "Trovatore" night at this
home opera. As the curtain goes up
you hear the stirring strains of
"Swarthy and- Threatening," sung by
Torres de Luna, the splendid basso of
La Scala opera house, Milan, Italy,
supported by the full La Scala chorus,
Then you get the Anvil Chorus, with
the clink of the hammers and the tune
ful references to the "Gipsy Maiden,'
"Fierce Flames Are Soaring," by Mme.
Homer, the famous contralto of the
..Metropolitan; then "Tremble Ye Ty

act musical drama. "Pagliacci," is pre
sented in 16 records. The composer,
Leoncavallo, selected the artists to in
terpret his great work, ad also con
ducted the entire performance at the
time the records were made. v
The making of any operatic record is
delicate and trying process, while
the difficulties that have to be met in
order to secure perfectly four, five or
six great voices all singing together
on the same record are known only
to the trained recording expert.
Caruso, Farrar, Gadski, Homer, Mel
ba, Scotti and Sernbrich are a few of
the artists who can now be heard . in
great concerted numbers of opera on
these splendid records.
Among the records in this class are
the duet, . "Lovely Maiden," from "La
Boheme," sung by Caruso and Melba,
the famous quartets from "Rigoletto'
and "La Boheme," the great quintet
from the "Meistersinger," and the bril

The perfected talking machine has
accomplished a great work in educating
the masses to an appreciation of fine
music, and the presentation of these
great concerted numbers and entire
operas opens up a new field of enjoy
