She calls for help, and Ernani, entering from a secret door, protects her, and defies the King. Silva, coming to visit his bride, finds his two rivals, and declares he will avenge the insult with his sword. The arrival of Don Ricardo, the royal armour-bearer, reveals to Silva that it is the King he has challenged, and, kneeling to him, he begs for pardon, which is granted.

This Silva refuses to do, as it is against the honour of a noble to betray a guest; but afterwards, finding that Ernani and Elvira are still faithful to each other, he plans vengeance. The King arrives, and demands that either Ernani or Silva shall be placed under arrest. Elvira pleads for mercy, and the King carries her off as hostage of the faith of Silva.

SAVINGS CHECKING FOREIGN EXCHANGE SAFE DEPOSIT BONDS LADD & Tilton BANK Oldest in the Northwest washington at third The Steinway THE master pianist is naturally the most exacting judge of all piano qualities. For in the expression of his art he makes demands upon his instrument that test per' fection to the utmost. A tone that is sonorous and pure in every note, a carrying power that makes practicable the most delicate pianissimo, an action that combines power, lightness and elasticity—these are but a part of all the qualities which the artist seeks—nay, which he demands. The fact that for the past fifty years nearly every pianist of the first rank has chosen the Steinvoay piano, seems conclusive. The Duo-Art Piano THE gifted few who have spent their lives in arduous work and study, come to you occasionally; you hear their matchless art—they are gone and you have only the memory of a wonderful hour. But a Duo-Art in your home makes possible the having of the eminent artists of the world as your permanent guests, so far as their art is concerned—to play when and what you like. The Victrola THE supremacy of the Victrola among musical instru' ments is directly attributable to quality. The greatness of its artists, the perfection of its records, the faithful' ness of its reproductions, the design and constuction of the Victrola itself—all bespeak the highest quality and make the Victrola the supremely satisfying musical instrument.
