THE XENTRIQUE QUARTETTE. IT WOULD SEEM FROM THE FOLLOWING TESTIMONIALS, THAT THE XENTRIQUES HAVE BEEN HEARD TO THEIR CREDIT. ARE YOU WILLING TO RUN THE RISK OF A SIMILAR EXPERIENCE? The Xentrique Quartette furnished our commencement music. They gave us what we wanted and all present want to hear them again. The people say I like to hear 'em sing. W. H. BEBOUT, Supt Schools, Bladensburg, Ohio. I take pleasure in expressing my appreciation of the Xentrique Quartette's work. Their choice of music, thorough preparation and faultless rendition, makes their singing most satisfactory. Our people were well pleased with the selections given at the commencement held here last June. I can cheerfully recommend the Xentriques to all lovers of vocal music. Respectfully, C. R. BABBS, Principal, Brandon, Ohio. It is a real pleasure to hear the Xentrique Quartette. They always delight their audience. C. L. WILLIAMS, Professor in Denison University, Granville, Ohio. To whom it may concern: The Xentrique Quartette of Mt. Vernon, have been here on two different occasions and each time they distinguished themselves by their good work.

Their music is especially suitable for commencement exercises and entertainment work. J. R. VAN VOORHIS, Supt. of Schools, Martinsburg, Ohio. Last year the Xentrique Quartette of Mt.

Appropriate selections, harmony of voices and pleasing presentations, all gave evidence of their ability. Very Truly, W. F. ALGIRE, Supt Schools, Bellville, Ohio. It gives me pleasure to say a word in favor of the Xentrique Male Quartette. I have heard them sing several times and can, without reserve, say they are as good as any amateur quartette I have ever heard. I have on two occassions, engaged them to sing at our commencement exercises and heartily recommend them. J. G. LELAND, Principal of High School, Mt. Vernon, Ohio. To the concerned: If you love music; if you love sweet, true voices that harmonize perfectly; if you want to hear a male quartette that sounds like more, you are looking for the Xentriques. I never heard a quartette that gave me more real pleasure. With my best wishes for their success, MARGARET CURTIS VAUGHAN, Chicago, Ill. To whom it may concern: I have heard the Xentrique Quartette at commencements, banquets, alumni reunions, in special concerts and various other places, and I am glad to say that on every occasion the quartette elicited the highest praise from the audience. The members of the quartette have sung together so long that their voices harmonize admirably. Their solo work is equally as good. The members are gentlemanly, always well behaved and dignified; their selections varied and suited to all occassions. The Xentriques have numerous engagements and have never failed to please. I take pleasure in recommending them. Respectfully Submitted, JOHN K. BAXTER, Supt. Public Schools, Mt. Vernon, Ohio. The Xentrique Quartette is not only composed of four good musicians, but of four singers who possess, in a rare degree, the faculty of making their music felt as well as heard. Their voices blend perfectly and their enunciation clear and distinct. MRS. BELLE CRITCHFIELD, Teacher of Music, Mt. Vernon, Ohio. Having many times had the pleasure of hearing the Xentrique Quartette sing, I do not hesitate to predict for them great success. The perfect balance and sympathy of voices, the style of music with its artistic rendering combine to insure a delightful evening's entertainment. MRS. IVA SPROULE BAKER, Teacher of Music, Mt. Vernon, Ohio. Newspaper Comments. The annual commencement of the Martinsburg schools, held Friday evening, was a great success. The music was furnished by the Xentrique Quartette.

Their singing is delightful, and is always one of the best features of entertainments in which they assist. Their unqualified and continued success is gratifying to their many friends.— Daily Republican-News, Mt. Vernon, Ohio. The exercises of the evening were opened with a song by the Xentrique Quartette.

P. church Friday night to the great delight of all their hearers. That their interpretation is equal to that of any similar organization on the road was shown by their work last night, as well as Monday night at the concert given at the Christian Church. The members of the quartette have worked hard to attain this state of perfection and their singing gives evidence of this fact.— Banner, Mt. Vernon, Ohio.
