They spent some time in Estes
park, which is one of the noted plac
es for the summer in Colorado, it be
ing deliriously cool there when it is
sweltering hot elsewhere. They
found an excellent prospect for a
corn croi even away out in the state
and approaching the Colorado line,
but the prtispects at some places
were marred by streaks where hail
had cut the vegitation badly. With
all the wonders of the west and the
coolness of the mountains the home
land looked very inviting as the
wheering of the au'o wheels brought
them nearer home. In fact the
home looked the best of all the plac
es which they visited.

Artists at Parmele Monday Night
Expelled Least Doubt of Im
possibility of Test.
Probably a number of people who
attended th- recital given last Mon
day night by Collins and Harlan at
the Parmele theatre were at !i rnt
puzzled and disappointed when thv
discovered a phonograph cabinet oc
cupying the center of the state.
They hardly were reassured when
Mr. Reed appeared on the stage and
commenced about "Re-Creations." It
finally became apparent that the
phonograph was at least to receive
assistance from the singers, but
even then the mental outlook was not
Mr. Reed explained that the pur
pose of the recital was to illustrate
that Thomas A. Edison, after years
of work had achieved his ideal of
perfecting a musical instrument
which would actually re-create music
so that the re-creation would be in
distinguishable from the original.
This was a broad claim, but it
was established before the evening
was over, for the artists actually
stood beside t lie new Edison phono
graph and performed in unison with
Mr. Edison's re-creation so called
of their performances. This would
have proved little as the artists might
easily have overbalanced the tone of
the instrument swallowed it up
so to speak; but they did more or,
to be accurate, less. They paused
from time to time, apparently at
random and permitted their re-created
performances to be heard alone.
This gave an opportunity to com
pare one with the other and it is not
more than just to state that there
was no discernable difference in tone
There must have been a slight dif
ference in volume when the artist?
stopped singing or playing, but it
was not noticeable for the tone which
came from the cabinet was round
and luscious with all of the vibrant
pulsating quality of that which
came directly from Collins' or Har
lan's throats. It was only by watch
ing the singer's lips that one could
be sure when they sang or played
and when they did not.
This proof was convincing. If it
were not, another proof was offered
After .Mr. Collins had commenced to
sing one number the lights were
turned off ostensibly so that the
audience could not watch the sing
It did not seem difficult to deter
mine m the dark when the singer
sang and when he did not. The
writer was pretty sure about it him
self until the lights were turned on
again and Lt was discovered that the
New Edison alone had been heard.
